Namibia’s Hidden Gems

There’s nothing more thrilling to a traveller’s heart then discovering the offbeat, the unusual and the hidden. Fortunately, we at Live the Journey are here to help you discover the very best hidden secrets of the beautiful Namib in luxury and style!

The open, arid near desert of Namibia draws those looking for a different kind of African adventure. Well known for the coastal haven, Swakopmund, the epic rolling dunes of Sossusvlei and the staggering salt pans of Etosha National Park, Namibia offers a whole lot more to the tourist wanting something different.

Head northwest to the Damaraland of the Kunene region to experience the region as it’s people do. Despite the country’s massive size, Namibia boasts the second-lowest population density around the globe, with only a few thousand native Himba people calling this dry land their permanent home. Explore the wild land of the Skeleton coast and the cold Atlantic that laps its shores. Marvel at the unique elephant population that has carved it’s home from the desert, and spot zebra, giraffe, gemsbok and rhino in their natural biome. It’s a truly unique experience, as these animals roam free of fences and other restrictions, mingling with the Himba and their cattle. If the dry October season is approaching, you may even spot desert lions stalking their prey.

If your heart lies with the sea instead, head to Pelican Point lighthouse, shadowing and protecting Walvis bay. Grab a kayak and meet the dolphin, seals and other wildlife up close and personal in their own habitat.Or take to the dunes on horseback for a singular view of the world.

Unspoiled and exquisite, Namibia lies ready for those who want to explore this unique corner of Africa. Contact Live the Journey today to book your Namibian experience.
