Namibia is an ideal destination for adventurers seeking a truly unique wilderness safari experience. (Its desert landscapes alone are some of the most impressive in the whole continent.) African Travel, Inc. is offering two new tours to the country, with perspectives into its culture, history and landscape.
"Mysterious Namibia" is an off-road 10-day safari that heads out to some truly remote areas. Visitors can see the world’s highest dunes and the Namibia desert’s landscapes. They will also get to spend time with the Himba, one of the last truly nomadic people in Africa, while visiting their seasonal settlement near the Kunene River. Fans of walking can try their hand (or feet, as it were) at tracking during a bushwalk in Etosha National Park, following desert-adapted black and white rhinos as well as lions, elephants, red hartebeest and the endemic black-faced impala. Guests will stay in safari lodging and tented camps, complete with a personal plunge pool in Sossusvlei.
"Namibia: Dunes and Wildlife," which also runs 10 days, explores Sossusvlei and its pink-and-orange sand dunes (many of which reach higher than 650 feet). A catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay, near the Skeleton Coast, brings wildlife (and seafood) fans up-close-and-personal with Namibia’s endemic Heaviside’s dolphins and locally-cultivated oysters. Land-lovers, meanwhile, can go Big Five game viewing on the immense salt pans and springs throughout Etosha National Park.
Bonus: In addition to receiving respective commission, advisors will also receive $250 for the first 2014 Brochure Safari booked by December 31, 2013.
