Namibia Tours are an amazing experience in southwest Africa that are packed with incredible, magical scenery and exotic wildlife. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, Botswana, South Africa, Angola, and Zambia, this often-overlooked travel destination boasts of an otherworldly salt pan, flanked by high red dunes: Sossusvlei. But the spectacular landscapes don't end here!
Travel northwest, and you'll encounter Etosha National Park, a beautiful wildlife sanctuary with a diverse range of animals. All you need to do here is park by a waterhole and watch crowds and crowds of animals flock to where you are. Those looking for cheetahs can also head to Okonjima, which is situated between Etosha National Park and Namibia's capital, Windhoek, for an incredible viewing opportunity of these majestic animals.
Perhaps the most attractive aspect of Namibia tours is that Namibia isn't a popular tourist destination, making your experience here all the more authentic and magical! Get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure when you book one of the tours in Namibia offered below – choose your style of vacation, and explore corners of this fascinating southwest African country in depth!
When is the Best Time to Visit Namibia?
The best time to visit Namibia is during the months of July to October, when temperatures are warm and conditions are dry. During this window, temperatures will hover at or just above 20℃ and there will be little in the way of rainfall, making it an excellent time of year to get outside and view the diverse range of wildlife that Namibia has to offer. As can be expected, this also falls within Namibia’s peak tourist season, so if you are looking to take advantage of the weather and wildlife viewing opportunities at this time be sure to plan your Namibia tours well in advance.

Sossusvlei is a popular tourist attraction for outdoor enthusiasts on Namibia tours who are looking to take in the natural beauty of the region.
