 Namibia dunesHighlights of Namibia by private trainLimited space register now
24 July, 2019 – 06 August, 2019
A land of diversity and contrasts, Namibia lies on the West Coast of Southern Africa and is home to some of the most beautiful desert plains and sand dunes. Namibia is also one of the largest countries in Africa, covering 824,000 square kilometres, and whilst it has the second lowest population density on the globe, Namibia is home to proud tribes steeped in tradition, herds of rare desert-dwelling elephants, wild horses and massive colonies of seals.  The landscape is comprised of vast and often inaccessible desert, often alien-like terrain, and an extraordinary abundance of wildlife.   Come and join us as we traverse this dramatic landscape by private train and we’ll share with you experiences ranging from visits to quaint German-inspired towns to uninhabitable deserts, bushland filled with wildlife and the highest sand dunes in the world.

Their monumental glacier walls of blue ice, mountain peaks and abundant marine life are a wildlife photographer’s dream.
