"There is nothing to prepare you for the profusion and mixture of scenery, wildlife, and the sheer enormity of elemental landscapes that await you in Namibia."
—Experience Designer, Michele Harvey
Talk about surreal
Even by Africa's standards, Namibia is vast—and sparsely populated, explaining the country's peaceful, almost 'soulful' feel. The world's oldest desert, the Namib, resides here, and there are few more stirring landscapes on the planet. Persimmon-hued sand dunes, white salt pans and burnt mountains paint the horizons. Black rhinos, big cats and elephants roam freely in Etosha National Park. Meet with the Himba people in the far northwest and the San in the east and see the country's complicated colonial past immerge as you wander the architecture and museums in Swakopmund (fondly known as "Little Bavaria"). Discover Namibia on a private, bespoke trip—tailored-made your way. Here are a few ideas to help get you started.
Discover the possibilities:
Walking in Namibia
Understand the wonders of this vast land by foot: Combine must-see dunes with off-the-beaten-track locations such as Damaraland, where desert-adapted elephants saunter about. You'll arrive at a different luxe camp each night and settle into your open-air bedroom under a blanket of stars.
Spend a morning tracking the largest population of free-roaming black rhinos in Africa. Gain a bird's eye view of everything Namibia has to offer on your private charter plane: spend time with the Herero people, meet magnificent creatures great and small and amble around myth-making boulders. Then, retreat to your remote camp where conservation and design converge.
Namibia by Bike
Pedal the towering wind-shaped sand dunes in Namib Naukluft National Park at sunrise, painting the dunes in a magnificent red. In Damaraland, marvel at the massive granite boulders and odd vegetation as you take your mountain bike over gravel plains and ancient river routes. At night, you'll hop between stunning, secluded luxury desert retreats, where elephants and lions often roam in the distance.
Lodge-to-Lodge in Namibia
Our lodge-to-lodge experiences leverage our years of expertise to curate itineraries of a region’s most exceptional properties and handle the logistics between them. Suited for more independent travellers, you’ll still receive the same attention and care we give to every guest—for the same price if you were to book direct with the lodges themselves. A B&R representative will meet you upon arrival and act as your in-destination concierge, while our long-trusted local teams take care of your every need and keep you entertained with immersive activities.
