11-Day Namibia Highlights Safari Self-Drive
You could spend a lifetime exploring Namibia. Here we've assembled the highlights in the 11 day Namibia Highlights Safari – a journey of fascinating discovery that includes the Sossusvlei in the Namib- Naukluft Park, the Skeleton Coast, Damaraland and Etosha National Park.
The Namib Desert covers the entire Namibian coastline of over 1,500km and sweeps up to 200km inland. It is the planet's oldest desert and has an astonishing diversity of landscapes and habitats including the Great Sand Sea of Sossusvlei and the surreal Skeleton Coast north of Swakopmund.
Damaraland's scenic rocky outcrops and sandy riverbeds form a vast undulating landscape that shelters a variety of desert-adapted wildlife including elephant, rhino, lion and some rather hardy plains game.
Etosha National Park’s plains game come to drink during the middle of the day when predators are most lethargic; thus it's not uncommon to have a collage of several different species in the same frame. Lions, elephants and several endemic species of antelope and birds - including 46 raptors - add to the game viewing excitement.
