Namibia is a land of a thousand landscapes, from the famous dunes of Swakopmund to the beautiful ocean views along the Skeleton Coast. It is not the easiest destination to explore with smaller children, given the dry heat and long distances – however, for active teenagers and adventurous families, it’s a playground. It’s also virtually malaria-free. It is home to unique wildernesses like the Namib Desert, the world’s oldest desert, and the second largest canyon in the world, the Fish River Canyon.
The best weather for a visit to Namibia is between April and May when picturesque green scenery is beginning to thin out after the rainy season but the parks are still relatively empty and the temperatures are more moderate and less scorching.
Our recommended activities in Namibia:
* Head to Damaraland, which is one of the most scenic parts of Namibia.
* Game drive through the Etosha National Park.
* Visit Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you will find one of the largest concentrations of rock art in Africa.
