Country: Namibia

Namibia is one of those blessed countries that do not often feature in the news and indeed is one of those places many people have difficulty finding on a World Atlas. It nestles quietly on the western coast of Southern Africa, bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the east, Angola to the north and the cold South Atlantic Ocean to the west. At roughly four times the size of the UK and with a 2 million population, crowds are a rare occurrence.

Namibia is a land of superlatives – the oldest desert, the highest sand dunes, the most cheetahs, and the largest meteorite and so it goes on. With daily flights via Johannesburg or Frankfurt, Namibia is easily accessible from the UK and is a year round destination.

This is a country for visiting for many reasons and is still a well kept secret, although gaining in popularity. Add in the fact that it has stunning scenery, is one of the safest countries in Africa, has well maintained infrastructure, drives on the left, has English as its official language and friendly people to assist you and we believe this is a destination for almost everyone.

Please note that an International Driving License is now required for Namibia.
