Namibian Holiday Ideas

This vast country has an array of exciting highlights. The remote Skeleton Coast, remarkably clear night skies and exciting national parks housing desert-adapted wildlife are just some of the great features Namibia has to offer. Wherever you go and whatever you do here, this magical country is guaranteed to amaze!

You can visit Namibia all year round; there are plenty of unique sights and experiences for you to enjoy when you get here and the choice to explore independently or with an expert guide. With all this in mind, you might find it difficult to decide which trip is the one for you. We have outlined the main Namibian Holiday Ideas to consider when planning a break to this astonishing land, helping you narrow down the options to find your perfect break.

If you would prefer a longer, trans-national tour, taking in Namibia with Zimbabwe and Botswana, take a look at our Southern Africa Safari Package. Alternatively, give us a call on 0333 800 2033 or speak to one of our friendly travel advisers using our online chat system (available during office hours) and we will help you find your ideal holiday in Africa.

African Attractions

Namibia is awash with fascinating attractions. The Skeleton Coast, for example, is an absorbing, arid land lined with shipwrecks which reveal numerous seafaring tragedies. With terrain so dry, animals such as the endangered Black Rhino have had to adapt to these harsh surroundings in order to survive.

Damaraland is a rugged, untamed area of beauty in which many desert-adapted animals live. Within this region lies the enchanting vision of a petrified forest which is millions of years old. Sossusvlei is also a major highlight. The remarkable red sand dunes hrtr are the highest and oldest in the world. Take a look at the following Namibian Holiday Ideas where you can see all of this and more.

The Waterberg Plateau Park is also a great place to visit due to the lush vegetation which grows here, contrasting with the surrounding plains which are thick with savannah.

Swakopmund is a colourful city which many people flock to during their holidays. There is a wealth of activities to engage in here including balloon rides, sky diving, quad biking and small marine cruises. Epupa Falls is another fantastic attraction due to its sheer scenic beauty.

If you want to spend longer in a particular location, exploring at your own pace, you may prefer to travel independently. Stay in luxury lodges and camps, based in the most impressive National Parks, and engage in activities of your choosing. This relaxed approach also gives you the flexibility to travel at any time of year rather than at set peak season departure dates. Why not take a look at our Highlights of Unique Namibia Safari for a fabulous lodge getaway?

When to Travel?

Every African season has its benefits when it comes to booking a holiday. In Namibia, most camps are open all year round, meaning that you can travel at the ideal time for you. For many, the dry season, from May to September, is the best. The scarcity of water at this time of year causes animals to emerge and travel to long standing watering holes, increasing your chances of wildlife sightings. If you are keen to travel to Namibia during the dry season, have a look at the following Namibian Holiday Ideas.

For others however, Namibia really comes to life during the ‘green season’, from November to June. Namibia is largely made up of two deserts, the Namib and Kalahari, and in the green season the scarce plant life is in full bloom. Also, during this quiet season, you can cover more ground and discover a wide range of subspecies which are harder to find in the less active dry season. Take a look at the Namibian Holiday Ideas below for breaks in the green season.
