To this day, Namibia encompasses magnificent and unspoiled wilderness areas - some unique to the African continent. To blend the classical highlights of this largely arid country with its hidden and remote hinterland requires flexibility and a sense of adventure. From the dunes of the Namib to the rugged terrain of Damaraland where the desert-adapted elephant and rhino have found a refuge - the key to the success of this diverse journey is undoubtedly found also in the small, personalised group size.
