Namibia & Botswana
The Less known Africa
Namibia, a vast country even for African standards, has endless horizons but a small population of only 2 million people. An ancient land, the home of the human race, witness of time and the perfect playground for unforgettable adventures. Its endless spaces fill every traveller with the sensation of being in a wise place, away from everything and so close to the wild. The sense of responsibility to protect their environment, wildlife and native cultures has resulted in a successful conservancy program where tourism plays a centre role in harmonizing the business relationship between landowners, the local communities, camps and lodge managers and the wildlife that roams free. This collaborative effort has bring the lion, elephant and rhino populations up to unexpected levels, and thus securing a thriving tourism for the coming years. Enrich your visit to Namibia with an expedition to the lush delta of the Okavango River in Botswana, where you will witness the end of a long journey where wild animals have walked for days to finally find the fresh waters that flood the Kalahari desert in northern Botswana. Cruise through the shallow channels hippos build through the wetlands on board of a mokoro (typical canoe;) spend entire mornings tracking leopards and enjoy a sundowner while watching elephants go into the lagoons to bathe and cool off.
