A Living Desert

From: £Contact us

Contrary to most pre-conceptions, Namibia is a land of remarkable diversity. Classed as an 'arid' country, the importance that water plays in its life cycle cannot be underestimated; it affects the very core of the country, sustains its living beings and shapes the surfaces upon which we gaze.

There are no compromises with Namibia; it as an unforgivingly and unapologetically beautiful country that, when visited, demands your attention. The scenery is mightily impressive in every possible way – incomprehensible at times, and though the species of wildlife that can been seen are not out of the ordinary, to encounter and observe any of them at close quarters in such surroundings is both humbling and exhilarating.

Accompanied by Wildlife Worldwide Director Nick Joynes, this small group luxury trip includes plenty of scenic flights by private light aircraft and some exceptional - and occasionally unique - accommodation, with opportunities to experience the diverse wildlife and landscapes of Namibia at close quarters.
