Namibia is the ephinany of ‘wide open spaces’. If you love to drive for hours through ever canging scenery without seeing a single soul, Namibia is the country for you. You either hate it or love. We, obviously, love it! Nature is breathtaking, safaris in Etosha are well rewarded and climbing the red sand dunes never gets boring. Explore this incredible destination in your own rental car or hook up with a small group to ensure an unforgettable journey.
