Luxury Holidays in Namibia
Take a break from the rest of the world and experience exclusivity and remoteness
Luxury Travel Experiences in Namibia
If you are seeking remoteness and a break from a busy life, a place of endless horizons and dramatic sunsets, a place of exciting adventures and serene solitude, warm hospitality and unadulterated wilderness, a place that will leave you impressed, in awe and hungry for more – we think you will find it in Namibia. A luxury vacation in this sparsely populated corner of Southern Africa will offer you spectacularly located lodges and camps, attentive service, and exclusive activities in the middle of the great outdoors. Where true luxury is measured by the million stars you can see twinkling in the sky.
What sets Namibia apart from other luxury travel destinations is the remoteness of many of its lodges and camps. You can truly leave the rest of the world behind and experience total solitude. The number of visitors at high-end accommodations is very low and you won’t see any day visitors in the private reserves and concessions – which means an exclusive experience on game drives, activities and at camp, away from any crowds. Some luxury lodges in the north-western Kunene Region are so far off the beaten track that you can only reach them by light aircraft.
Luxury means different things to different people, and we will tailor your luxury holiday in Namibia to your personal expectations, travel style and preferences. Whether you would like to travel Namibia together with an experienced local guide in our specially converted Toyota Land Cruiser, skip the long driving distances on a light aircraft fly-in safari or experience an exciting self-drive adventure in a fully equipped 4×4 off-road car – it’s your luxury holiday and you spend it the way you want to.
Our experienced travel specialists have travelled Namibia extensively, visit many accommodations regularly and are here to tailor-make your perfect Namibia luxury travel experience. You can get involved as much or as little in the planning of your itinerary as you wish. We will tweak the details until you’re fully satisfied, looking forward to your very own personalised vacation in Namibia.
SPECTACULAR LOCATIONS AND WARM HOSPITALITY
Stunning landscapes from impressive mountain ranges to sky-high sand dunes, and rough oceans is what Namibia is best known for. And these locations are exactly the places where you will find some of Namibia’s most sought-after luxury lodges and camps. Some are so far out you can only get there by plane. That doesn’t mean you are stranded in the middle of nowhere though – on the contrary. Camps and lodges are equipped with everything and anything you might need, tastefully decorated, offering fine food and wines; they are also the starting point for many unforgettable experiences and activities such as hot air ballooning, sundowner drives, catamaran, and horseback riding trips. But it is the warm hospitality and attentive service of the Namibian people that turns a high-end accommodation into a home away from home – where you are welcomed as guest, not just a room number.
Nambwa Tented Lodge in the heart of the Bwabwata National Park known for its large elephant herds. Expect the standard and service of a hotel, but an closeness to nature that is unparalleled.
Hidden amongst ochre-coloured boulders lies the Mowani Mountain Camp in the Damaraland, close to Twyfelfontein.
Accommodations such as the Ongava Tented Lodge offer various activities – like game drives in the private Ongava Game Reserve south of the Etosha National Park.
Luxury accommodations like the Wolwedans Dune Camp offer spacious guest tents, tastefully decorated.
Resident guides at lodges know the surrounding area extremely well. On guided walks and drives, they share their local knowledge with you.
What to expect on luxury holidays in Namibia?
With its neighbours Botswana and South Africa known as world-class luxury travel destinations, Namibia is often overlooked by travellers seeking a unique luxury experience. But Namibia is a luxury travel destination in its very own right: There is no place in Southern Africa where you can experience the vastness, remoteness and isolation like in Namibia. Exclusive-use luxury lodges in Namibia may well be some of the last places you can truly have all to yourself.
Luxurious off-road self-drive trips
We tailor your luxury holidays in Namibia to your every wish – that begins with the way you prefer to travel. If you enjoy driving, then Namibia will add yet another layer to your trip: As one of the best 4×4 offroad driving destinations in the world and certainly in Africa, Namibia is the ideal place for self-drive trips. Cover the long and lonely roads in fully equipped 4×4 vehicles for ultimate driving pleasure; stop along the way whenever you want and experience a sense of freedom you won’t ever feel on a city highway. After a long day on dusty desert roads, take a dip in the swimming pool at your luxury camp and enjoy the good life.
Alternatively, you can travel in our specially converted safari vehicles, driven by an experienced guide. Sit back, relax and leave the organisation of your trip as well as the driving to your guide. Your guide will share useful information about vegetation, wildlife, culture, and everyday life with you – they are your window into a new world.
A fly-in safari is arguably the most comfortable way to travel Namibia as you will cover the long driving distances in a small aircraft. This way, you have more time to enjoy your handpicked accommodation and activities organised by your lodge.
Activities on luxury travel experiences in Namibia
Whether you’re on honeymoon or bringing the whole family, there are plenty of things to do on luxury vacations in Namibia – one of them being to just relax and enjoy your beautiful surroundings of course. More adventurous activities include hot air ballooning and scenic flights across the Namib desert or horseback riding trips in one of the private reserves.
Namibia is also an exciting destination for photographers: some lodges offer wildlife photography hides where you are on eye-level with the resident wildlife on the ground; the minimal light pollution in Namibia’s wilderness areas creates the ideal conditions for night sky photography.
If you’d like to get active, you can go on hikes and nature walks, by yourself or with a guide. The coastal town of Swakopmund is known as the country’s adventure capital; here you can go on quad bike and fat bike tours in the desert, go paragliding, kayaking and on catamaran tours.
One thing you will most definitely get to enjoy are sundowner drives: when the sun begins to set, you are taken to a location with stunning views across Namibia’s untouched wilderness, enjoy cool drinks and the magical light as the sun sets on the horizon.
Crossing the border: Botswana and Namibia luxury tours
In Namibia, you can see some of the highlights of luxury travel in Southern Africa: from the famous Sossusvlei and Deadvlei in the Namib Desert to the vast Fish River Canyon, the mystical Skeleton Coast and Etosha National Park, known for excellent wildlife viewing. If you’d like to experience even more wildlife moments, you can combine your Namibia holiday with a trip to Botswana – the destination arguably known for the best luxury wildlife experiences in Africa. Chobe National Park, the Okavango Delta and Moremi Game Reserve offer personal and luxurious camps off the beaten track, in the middle of nature. Our sister company operates from the safari capital Maun which means we are ideally situated to organise Botswana and Namibia luxury tours for our guests.
