Namib Nakluft National Park in Namibia

This is Namibia’s largest wildlife conservation area and is also one of the world’s largest national parks.

The Namib is one of the oldest and driest deserts in the world as a result of the cold Benguela current which sweeps north from Antarctica and captures and condenses humid air which would otherwise be blown ashore. The core area of the park consists of immense apricot colored dunes interspersed with dry pans. The most famous of these is known as Sossusvlei, a dusty pan surrounded by dunes 300 metres high. On the very rare occasions when the Tsauchab River is flowing Sossusvlei fills with water and attracts gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and a variety of aquatic birds.

Most of our camps are located in this area of magnificent landscapes and experience clear skies with wonderful sunrises and magical starlit nights.
