Aptly named after the Namib - the oldest desert on the planet, Namibia is a country of astonishing contrasts. Celebrated for its vast open landscapes of glittering plains, rugged mountains, immense sand dunes and star filled nights.
Namibia is a rich tapestry of cultures that freely blends African styles with European influences on architecture, food, customs and art. A visit here also offers the opportunity to interact with indigenous people like the nomadic Himba.
The many national parks and game reserves are home to a variety of wildlife, with some species specially adapted to the harsh environment.
It is now possible to cover enormous distances between deserts, dunes and oases by scheduled light aircraft transfers that provide awe inspiring views of this extraordinary land from the air.
