“A sounder of warthogs!” someone shouts as we cycle a dirt road through low desert shrubs. “A journey of giraffes!” comes another cry on the shoreline of a white salt plain. Spend enough time amid Namibia’s Sahara of sand and you learn a lexicon of textbook terms for packs of African critters… Butterfield & Robinson offers custom trips to Namibia. Itineraries are flexible and depending on your desires can include mountain biking, desert quad-biking, horseback riding, hiking, rhino tracking and visiting nomadic villages.

From a charter plane you’ll have a bird’s eye view as this spectacular country spreads out before you.
