Indagare is thrilled to offer this eight-night safari in Namibia for members seeking an adventure-filled trip to one of the world’s most fascinating destinations, with insider access to natural and cultural sites.
What to Expect
With one of our partnering safari experts, Jason Knott, you can take in rugged and dramatic landscapes from the air, explore one of Africa’s largest private nature reserves, embark on an exciting boat excursion on the Kunene River and climb some of the world’s highest free-standing sand dunes. Evening activities include relaxing at our preferred luxury tented camps, as well as opportunities to deepen your cultural experience—for instance, by examining the southern hemisphere’s night sky with an expert astronomer or meeting a native tribe. This trip covers all the highlights of Namibia.
Often described as southern Africa’s final frontier, Namibia consists mostly of desert, sand dunes, huge open spaces and great swaths of silence. Geographically twice the size of California, Namibia today is home to a population of only 2.2 million people, about half the population of Los Angeles. Namibia sits in the southwest corner of Africa, bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the east and Angola and Zambia to the north. The country is geographically divided into three strips running from north to south: the 1,200-mile-long Namib Desert on the Atlantic coast, the central plateau (home to the capital city Windhoek) and the Kalahari Desert in the east, which borders Botswana. The south is home to the famed Sossusvlei dunes and much diamond mining activity. In the east of the country is the relatively lush and vibrant 8,500-square mile Etosha National Park.
