Namibia tours are the perfect opportunity to enjoy an immersive cultural experience and explore the diverse landscapes. The deserts, savannahs, and rugged coastlines describe one of the driest destinations in the world

The country is home to six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the most notable being the Namib, where the desert meets the sea. Namibia safari tours are the ideal experience for first-time visitors to Africa, with its pure wilderness.

Exoticca’s Namibia holiday packages are all-inclusive, giving you everything you need for an extraordinary trip. Our offerings include all flights, transfers, accommodation, fun activities, and some meals. 

Namibia tours from the UK mark the beginning of the adventure of a lifetime, departing from and returning to London.

Top Points of Interest in Namibia

Exoticca’s Namibia holiday packages offer the ideal blend of scheduled tours and free exploration. Take advantage of the free time in your itinerary to explore the diverse culture and rich history of the “land of the brave”. Namibia certainly has enough to offer that you’ll be sharing stories for years to come. 

Etosha National Park

With Namibia safari tours, Etosha National park should be on everyone’s bucket list. It is among the top destinations for spotting abundant wildlife, namely elephants and rhinos. 

Bird watchers are in for a treat at Namutoni Spring, where you can spot an array of rare and vibrant avian species. Some to look out for include the crimson-breasted shrieks and violet-eared waxbills.

Spot the Big Four (elephants, rhinos, lions, and leopards) at the Moringa and Okaukuejo waterholes. You may also glimpse various kudu, giraffe and gemsbok species. 

Did you know that the animals have a vibrant nightlife too? Take a night Namibian safari tour during the warmer seasons to see a fantastic display at the watering holes. 

Interact with the Hai|| Om San hunter-gatherer tribe to learn about the rich culture and biodiversity of the Etosha region. As inhabitants of the land that date back thousands of years, they’ll share their knowledge about the park’s history, geography, and animals. 

Skeleton Coast and Cape Cross

The Skeleton Coast may seem intimidating with its unwelcoming weather and the shipwrecks and animal skeletons seen across the landscape, but don’t let it fool you. This picturesque land has a rich history and breathtaking views.

Enjoy a scenic flight over the area to fully appreciate the majestic view of the Namib desert meeting the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day, you’ll also see the remains of shipwrecks over the years because of the rough waters and sharp rocks. 

Be sure to pay a visit to Cape Cross, home to over 200,000 Cape fur seals. Bring extra clothing with, though as it’s possibly one of the smelliest places in all of Namibia. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

The Save the Rhino Trust, located outside the Skeleton Coast Park, protects the last remaining free-roaming black rhinos in Namibia. Stop by the Trust’s Ugab Base Camp near the Brandberg mountain to spot these endangered animals. 

For the ultimate in Namibian adventure tours, a hike along the Ugab and Huab Riverbed terrain is not to be missed. This exquisite area is known for its ancient rock art and other historical findings.

Now a ghost town of German architecture, Kolmanskop is famed for the buildings being overtaken by sand dunes. What was once a bustling mining settlement is now a deserted town and popular tourist attraction and inspiration for budding photographers. 

Swakopmund

A preferred stop on many of the best Namibia tours, Swakopmund steals the hearts of anyone who visits the town. The beautiful coastal town caters to every traveler’s desire—adventure, history, culture, nature, or a tranquil getaway. 

The coastal town was the hub of German colonialism in Namibia, increasing traffic between the two countries. As with many locations across the country, the name given by local inhabitants describes what the town is known for. In this case, Swakopmund is at the mouth (“mund”) of the Swakop River. 

The weather is typically harsh in this area, but often becomes more pleasant during the day. A cold and misty morning could end with a glorious sunset cocktail at the beachside restaurant, Tiger Reef or a Jetty stroll. Temperatures change drastically, so always be prepared

Swakopmund welcomes approximately 200,000 visitors each year, meeting every desire. Experience a thrilling adventure by skydiving over the desert or a quad bike or camel-back tour of the dunes. 

Immerse yourself in the rich local history and culture at the Mole Museum and informal settlement tours. Enjoy the German cuisine and other local dishes at the oldest pub in town, Kücki’s Pub and Grill. 

Namib Desert

Famed as the oldest desert in the world, the name “Namib” translates to “vast place”—an aptly assigned name. The dramatically beautiful landscape of this coastal desert is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

We recommend Namibian escorted tours in this area as it's challenging to navigate and easy to get lost. This “vast place” encompasses Namibia’s entire coastline, with the largest dune reaching as high as 1,256ft (383m).

This unique desert is home to more endemic wildlife than any other location worldwide. Through living desert Namibia group tours, you’ll discover and learn all about species like the dune lark, Herero chat, Namib day gecko, Grant’s golden mole and many more. 

Enjoy Namibia tours through the Namib-Naukluft National Park, namely Sossusvlei, the most famous attraction in the country. Marshes and pools formed among the dunes formed the area. The area is dry most of the time with only cracked clay and acacia trees left behind—known as Deadvlei, a popular shooting location for movies. 

For dune boarding and climbing adventures, head over to Dune 45. It’s a relatively small dune, ideal for those who aren’t up for the fitness challenge, but provides breathtaking views of the Tsauchab corridor from the top

Hidden Gems of Namibia

When you book a holiday with Exoticca, it doesn’t mean that adventure tours in Namibia are your only option. Knowledgeable locals carefully curated our itineraries to give you the freedom to enjoy Namibia tours off the beaten path

Namibia truly has some of the best sites for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. A perfect example is the Hoba Meteorite located outside of the Etosha National Park. It’s the largest known meteorite on Earth that was too large to move, despite many efforts. 

While at the coast, visit the “moon landscape oasis” Goanikontes. What used to be a settlement suitable for cattle breeders, is now a popular spot for locals to visit for the day. As you head back to town, take a moment to stop and enjoy the exquisite views of the landscape.

More information about Namibia

A vast southern African country, characterised by its diverse landscapes of deserts, savannahs and rugged coastline, Namibia is the perfect destination for getting in touch with your wild side. Bordered by South Africa, Angola and Botswana and separated from neighbouring Zimbabwe by the huge Zambezi River, Namibia is often hailed as the perfect destination choice for first-time travellers to Africa as it encompasses a huge array of attractions that epitomise the dream of the African safari and the untouched, wild landscapes that this continent is known for. 

With wildlife, wilderness and the unique culture of the indigenous communities such as the Himba and San peoples, a Namibia holiday package will open your eyes and heart to the heart of Africa.

The capital, Windhoek, in the centre of the country, is the starting point for most explorations into the country’s natural wonders, whilst Swakopmund, on the Atlantic ocean coast, offers visitors on a tour of Namibia a fascinating insight into the country’s colonial past, with cheerful German-style buildings in a charming palette of colours. 

On the other hand, Etosha National Park and Damaraland are some of the most abundant destinations for wildlife spotting in South Africa, filled with African animals, most notably rhinos and elephants. Open-top safaris, whale-watching in the Atlantic and climbing the red dunes of the Namib Desert; a holiday to Namibia brings these opportunities within your reach!

 

History of Namibia

To truly understand and make the most of a Namibia tour, you must first get to know its diverse and eventful history. Indigenous groups such as the Nama, San and Damara have inhabited the territory of modern-day Namibia since ancient times. It was not until the 14th-century that the now dominant Bantu people’s arrived in the country, changing the cultural landscape forever. 

After annexation by British colonialists during the ‘scramble for Africa’ in the late 19th-century, parts of Namibia became integrated into the Union of South Africa in 1910. Already, most of Namibia was under the rule of the German Empire, known as ‘German South-West Africa’

This period and its influence are clearly seen in the country’s language and in its colonial architecture, which you’ll notice if you visit Swakopmund during a tour of Namibia. Certain Namibian ethnic groups were targeted by the authorities during the years of German rule. The darks days of this genocide in the early 1900s greatly affected the Herero and Namaqua people and left its mark on the country as a whole. In 1915, South African forces ended German rule in Namibia and in the aftermath of World War I the territory became fully integrated into South Africa, later suffering the same fate of apartheid from 1948 to the 90s. It was not until 1990 that Namibia gained full independence, after decades of uprisings and guerillas warfare, although Walvis Bay and Penguin Islands did not gain independence until 1994. 

 

Nature in Namibia

Well-known for its sweeping sand dunes, Namibia is home to a vast array of natural wonders and is a must-visit haven for nature photographers. Rivers and wetlands contrast with the grassy plains of the Kalahari, whilst wildlife-rich coastal attractions, such as Walvis Bay, offer visitors the chance to meet seas lion colonies and pods of dolphins.

A package holiday to Namibia is sure to revolve around the wildlife and natural attractions of the country, and there is a handful of sights which characterise the experience. Fish River Canyon is the largest canyon in Africa and amazes visitors with its rugged landscape of unique and winding rock formations. It’s the perfect place to get out into the wild on a number of challenging hiking trails. 

Perhaps the most famous natural sight in the country is Sossusvlei, an other-worldly expanse of towering red sand dunes, as big as mountains, fossilised trees and atmospheric orange-hued landscapes. The famous fossilised trees have survived centuries without decaying due to the dry climate of the Namib Desert, the oldest in the world. If you have the chance to climb ‘Big Daddy’, one of the largest sand dunes, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views and a brilliant sense of achievement! 

Wildlife lovers and those who are adamant on sighting some of Africa’s biggest game will be drawn to Etosha National Park during a holiday to Namibia. Herds of elephants are park’s most characteristic sight and it’s undoubtedly the best place for wildlife spotting in the country. Rhinos, leopards and cheetahs can be found here in abundance, particularly around the wet season watering holes where they refresh themselves at dusk and dawn. 

 

Culture in Namibia

Many intrepid travellers choose a tour of Namibia to immerse themselves in the country’s diverse and unique culture. Over the centuries, immigration has resulted in a population composed of numerous different ethnic groups, many with their own traditions and ways of life that invite curiosity and admiration from visitors. 

Examples include the nomadic San bushmen and the Himba people, known for their use of otijze, a red paste applied to the women's skin and hair. Many groups continue to live very traditionally, in villages composed of straw huts, and participate in rituals and folklore that have withstood the pressures of modernity. Cattle and farming are integral parts of rural life in Namibia. 

More than half the population live rurally, and it’s here, in the vast countryside, where you can get to the heart of Namibian culture. Many Namibians follow Christianity, although up to 20% of the the population continue to practice their own indigenous beliefs. The official languages are English and German, due to its colonial past, although Oshiwambo is the most widely spoken. Visitors on a holiday in Namibia will notice the strong German influence in the cities; you can even dine and drink in German restaurants and pubs, especially in the capital of Windhoek. 

Watch the sunrise over Big Daddy Sand Dune in the Namib Desert, photograph fossilised trees in Sossusvlei, meet the noisy sea lions of Walvis Bay and embark on a wildlife safari in Etosha National Park on an action-packed tour of Namibia. Open up a world of adventure and experience a warm welcome in this beautiful country.
