12 Night / 13 Day Fascinating Namibia Lodge Safari Guided Tour

Namibia is certainly one of the most fascinating countries in Southern Africa. When on safari through its unique landscapes, you experience the vastness and solitude of Namibia. In addition to the picturesque Kalahari, Namib Desert, Swakopmund and Etosha National Park, Namibia offers great hospitality, very good value for money and excellent cuisine. It is an interesting and varied travel destination combining the country’s German colonial history with wildlife, spectacular landscapes and friendly people. A guided safari is certainly the perfect alternative to a self-drive tour in Namibia.
