Namibia Park Profiles
Etosha National Park
Let's start with the big one that most people know and tend to visit on their first Namibia safari. Most famous for incredible game viewing in the dry season (July to Oct); especially around the many waterholes which attract huge herds of herbivores and as a consequence some of the regions top predators. Most of the roads are drivable in a 2WD vehcile, which makes this park a great choice for first time self drive safari goers. Good simple accommodation options inside the park are well located with access to the key water holes and some decent private lodges are found on the park boundaries. Some signature species which can be found in Estosha are black rhino, white rhino (rare!) lion, cheetah, leopard (rare!), caracal and Roan antelope.
Southern Damaraland is more accessible for standard vehicles and the main focus is on some of the regions well known tourist sites; such as mountains of Spitzkoppe and Brandberg, the petrified forest and the wealth of rock art located at Twyfelfontein. Our focus will be more on the northern Damaraland and in particular the Palmwag concession; where we will hope to spot Black Rhino and Desert Elephant on specialist 4X4 safaris from wilderness camps.
Utterly unique and a part of Namibia which has a lot more in common with the countries which it borders - Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. As a wildlife lover, it would be amiss of us to not visit the far north east of the country, as there is a real wilderness about this area and it is also home to some species which you will find nowhere else in Namibia. Take Mudumu National Park for example; which is home to Buffalo, Roan and Sable Antelope - all 3 uncommon in other parts of Namibia. You can also visit the famous Kwando river from the Namibia side and visit the wild and little visited and wild Nkasa Rupara national park, where we can access the beautiful Linyanti Swamp.
A great starting point for your self drive safari in Namibia, with some stunning coastline and the chance of both adventure and wildlife tours. We recommend a small boat safari to visit the Cape Fur seal colonies and during October and November, you will have a chance to see Humpback, Southern Right and Minke Whales.
