Few countries in Africa offer such a variety of spectacular landscapes: giant sand dunes, high mountains, bizarre rock formations, deep canyons, waterfalls and bush savannah. Some liken Namibia to a "moon-like" landscape because of its surreal remoteness. The Namib is the oldest desert on earth where you can find a lone oryx wandering over red sand dunes and springbok feeding on the sparse vegetation in dry river beds. Namibia with its incredibly beautiful landscapes, also has abundant desert-adapted wildlife and cultural and tribal diversity that makes it one of the most photogenic countries in the world. Theo and Jami, owners of Wild Focus Expeditions, have spent several years in Namibia and will take you to their most favorite and photogenic places during this safari. You will climb the highest sand dunes in Africa and wander among the silent skeletons of 1000 year old acacia trees in a white clay pan surrounded by these giant red dunes.
Further north, desert elephants and other desert-adapted animals will be awaiting you in one of the dry river beds that leads from the interior mountains to the mystic Skeleton Coast. You will be amongst the very few people who are actually allowed to enter the mysterious Skeleton Coast. More sand dunes along the foggy coast will meet your creative eye as you make your way down to the ocean shore where lunch awaits. Flying back to camp after lunch while looking out of the window of our small bush plane will astonish you with the eerie remoteness of this beautiful wild land called Namibia.
After several days in the Skeleton Coast, we will fly you to the furthest northern village of Namibia along the Kunene river in Kaokoland where the Himba people still maintain a life so primitive that it proves how adaptable and resilient humans can truly be. We will have a few days to discover Epupa Falls along the Kunene river and visit Himba villages in the mornings and evenings. This is not the touristy kind of village visit that you hear about, but rather the most authentic experience with the Himba that is possible outside of living with them. When we leave Kaokoland, we continue our journey to the edge of the Etosha Pan, where we will come face to face with Namibia's wild rhinos and other wildlife. Our journey does not end here however. When we leave northern Namibia behind, we will drive south and spend an afternoon tracking rhinos on foot. Our evening, spent with the San bushmen is not the last Namibian experience that we will have. Read the itinerary to learn what other experiences Namibia has in store for you.
