Namibia Overview

Why should I travel to Namibia?
This land of deserts has some of the most photogenic landscapes in all of Africa. Although Namibia is not as famous for wildlife as some other southern African countries, it has many unique, desert-adapted and fascinating species that are well worth looking for. The country also has some fine wilderness lodges providing comfortable accommodation and excellent service in some of Namibia’s most remote areas.

When is the best time to go to Namibia?
The best time to visit Namibia is during the dry season (May-Oct). Etosha is Namibia’s premier wildlife park. In the desert areas you will not see large numbers of animals, but there are rare and interesting species to be found.

What is the culture like in Namibia?
Namibia has a number of different tribal groups with their own distinct cultures including the Herero, Baster, Himba and Bushmen peoples.

What is the climate in Namibia?
The cold Benguela current keeps the coast cool and rain-less. Rain falls inland during the summer (Oct-Apr) in thunderstorms. Summer days are hot and the nights cool, whilst winters are sunny and cold.

What can I combine Namibia with?
A big game wildlife safari in South Africa, Botswana or Zimbabwe complements a trip to Namibia. Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe is another destination you could look at.

How to get to Namibia?
The main gateway to Namibia is through Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek. Flights to Windhoek depart daily from Johannesburg, the city where most visitors begin their Namibia itineraries.

US – Flying to Namibia from the United States requires at least one stop over. The easiest way is via Frankfurt, Germany or Doha, Qatar. Both Lufthansa and Qatar Airways fly directly into Windhoek.

UK/Europe – Again, the most direct access is via Frankfurt, Germany or Doha with Qatar Airways. Alternatively, South African Airways and British Airways fly to South Africa’s capital Johannesburg. From there you can fly to Windhoek with South African Airways.
