Namibia 

 

More than a simple journey, a tour in Namibia is an extraordinary journey through time, a return to the roots of life. Eternal, immense, grandiose, bewitching, a true kaleidoscope of colours, no superlative can ever describe Namibia. In these timeless landscapes, there is a rich diversity of fauna and flora. 

Predators, antelopes, pachyderms… meet in Etosha National Park, but also in more wild areas, such as the Hartmann Valley, Purros or Palmwag. 

This feeling of freedom and the first morning of the world gives Namibia its special appeal. Visiting this country is like feeling a moment of freedom and an unforgettable change of scenery.

Most of the trip through Namibia are made with your own 4×4 (easy to rent in Windhoek), it gives you the opportunity to sleep and stay by night in wonderful places in middle of natures.
