We decided to divide it into three groups that correspond to the elements of mother nature
Discover the African wilderness with all your senses through game drives, bush walks, horseback safaris or a hot air balloon ride. While walking safaris offer a particularly intense experience of the unique flora and fauna, classic game drives and fast quad bike tours allow you to explore vast areas in a short time.
During an ascent in a hot air balloon, on idyllic excursions by boat or on horseback, you will get to know the beautiful wilderness from completely new perspectives and you will approach the wildlife gently and almost in silence. Walking with the San, the indigenous people of southern Africa, provides other impressions of a fascinating ancient culture.
Once you choose to explore the African continent, it is up to you to decide exactly how you want to achieve this. There is an incredible range of choices about how active (or not) you can be each day.
Please note that every single activity included in your safari will enhance your experience and is selected by our expert according to what you share with us in the planning process of your safari. What all activities have in common: professional guides accompany you and your group, show you the most beautiful places and share their expert knowledge of overwhelming nature with you.
A typicall day on an african safari: game drives
Exciting night game drives for a thrilling experience
Guided bush walks
Hiking & Trekking experience
Namibia offers some of Africa's best hikes, from leisurely strolls to challenging multi-day hikes over equally varied terrain. Rolling hills or steep mountains sectioned by steep ravines; smooth, cave-carved rocks that hide ancient works of art, and deep, cool canyons; incredibly high sand dunes; a wild coast patrolled by lone jackals.
Unlike guided nature walks, walking safaris are defined as a longer hike sometimes with more challenging terrain. Walking safaris in stunning environments can last a day or be part of multi-day treks that go "point-to-point" (but don't gain elevation like mountain climbing).
Bird watching - wildlife & photo tour
Wellness - Yoga
Namibia is one of the best destinations in the world for stargazing. Its dark, clear night skies are among the most pristine in the world. The NamibRand Nature Reserve's private reserve has been designated "Gold Tier International Dark Sky Reserve" by the International Dark Sky Association. The NamibRand International Dark Sky Reserve was the second place on Earth designated with Gold Tier status due to its exceptionally dark skies. The NamibRand International Dark Sky Reserve was also the first International Dark Sky Reserve in developing countries and Africa.

The cold Benguela Current, which flows from south to north, lapping the entire Namibian coast, carries a large quantity of plankton that triggers a gigantic food chain. In fact, the Atlantic waters in front of these coasts host a great variety and quantity of fish that are difficult to catch in other African states. Near the coast you can find: stingrays, Boccadoro, Steenbras snapper, sea catfish, hound shark, cow shark, bronze shark, black spotted gully shark, sandbar shark and many other minor species. World-class tiger fish fishing is found in the Zambezi and Okavango rivers.
If fishing is your thing then there are plenty of opportunities, both novice and experienced anglers will enjoy catching and releasing at some of the best fishing spots in the world in Namibian rivers, lakes and coastlines.
