Southern Africa Explorer

An excellent, value for money trip. My sister was especially impressed, having little previous experience of camping. The office did an excellent job dealing with our booking.

Namibia

Namibia

Take an adventure holiday to Namibia with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.

Namibia is divided into 3 distinct topographical regions:

Namib Desert: Long narrow coastal desert 50km-140km, extending along the entire coastline and interspersed with dune belts, dry riverbeds and deeply eroded canyons.

Central Plateau: Runs from North to South with an average altitude between 1000-2000 m. This area has breathtaking landscapes, rugged mountain, rocky outcrops, sand filled valleys and endless plains.

Kalahari Desert: Long vegetated dunes of red sand extend through this area. It spans dense bush covered plains north east of the Etosha Pan including the high rainfall areas of Kavango and Caprivi, tropical forest, perennial rivers and woodland savannah. Namibia is the first country in the world to include protection of the environment and sustainable utilisation of wildlife in its constitution.

Namibia has 1 826 million people and a population density that is one of the lowest in the world at less than 2 people per km².
