Namibia Safari and Namibia Holidays
Namibia is unique. From its deserts, lush bush and savagely wild coast; to its ever-changing light and gloriously incongruous colonial architecture, it's a total one-off.
And great guides - A&K guides - can make it even better. Take Damaraland, where elephants have evolved to survive among the starkly beautiful plains and dry riverbeds. We can arrange skilled rangers to take you tracking the desert-adapted black rhino on foot - an experience open to very few visitors. Most haven't even have heard of it.
The knowledgeable guides, with their passion for understanding and explaining Namibia's sun-baked wilderness, are a crucial ingredient in our large Southern African team that has provided premium travel for over 50 years, including 24-hour emergency contact, seamless ground arrangements and well established local contacts to arrange unique one-off experiences.
Take a luxury Namibian holiday and safari with Abercrombie & Kent and you'll discover an amazingly diverse and photogenic country. There's the Etosha National Park swaddling a shimmering salt pan, one of Africa's most legendary reserves, with 340 species of birds - admittedly 100 less than in the Caprivi Strip, a long finger of animal-rich wetland spiking to the northeast with huge herds of elephant and tiny numbers of visitors.
Head west and the vast Skeleton Coast - a wild, otherworldly landscape punctuated by shipwrecks and bleached whalebones - is the evocative stage for a memorable flying safari. And you're only just starting. To the south, in the central Namib Desert, Sossusvlei has the highest - and perhaps reddest - dunes on the planet, reaching over 300m towards a cyan blue sky, juxtaposed with dry white clay pans.
It's a remarkable landscape, matched by the Fish River Canyon, the second largest on earth: 160km of vertiginous cappuccino coloured rock walls and flat topped buttes. Want to walk it? We'll find the best walking guide to take you.
Then there's the quirky German architecture of Swakopmund, Luderitz and Kolmanskop - a diamond-mining ghost town being swallowed by desert sands. And we haven't even mentioned Walvis Bay, a vital wetland for 200,000 migratory coastal birds, or the Namibrand Nature Reserve, established to protect unique desert ecology and wildlife. Namibia has a lot. An awful lot. And with A&K all possible.
