Namibia's different regions

Namibia's different regions

Gigantic and splendid landscapes, exceptional encounters with black rhinoceros, desert elephants and oryx : travel to another world and explore Namibia's different regions.

1

Etosha National Park

It is one of the largest nature reserves in the world. In the rainy season, the vast salt desert of Etosha Pan is transformed into a lagoon full of flamingos. Its arid plains are home to more than 100 species of mammals. In the dry season, animals gather around watering holes ; in the rainy season you can watch a baby zebra take its first steps.

 

Sleeping there

Dolomite Camp: An elegant camp to the west of the park, in a newly accessible area, where wildlife is particularly plentiful.

2

The Waterberg plateau

This gigantic ochre monolith stands out in the middle of the plain. It is home to rare species such as white rhinoceros, sable antelopes and roan antelopes.

 

Sleeping there

Erongo Wilderness: A lodge of just ten tents, on the edge of the country's three main ecosystems: desert, mountain and bush.

3

Kavango

The landscapes of Kavango offer a striking contrast to the rest of the country : it is a hilly area with lush vegetation. The marshes of the Caprivi strip are a very special wildlife sanctuary. Here you get the full safari effect on foot.

 

Sleeping there

Divava Okavango Lodge and Spa: A magnificent lodge and haven of peace on the banks of the Okavango River, with 20 luxurious rooms.

 

Animals are everywhere, not just in the national parks. Elephants, cheetahs and oryx… up close with the animal kingdom in a way you can't experience anywhere else.

 

4

The Kaokoland

The Himba people's region is isolated and of a singular beauty. Its ochre mountains lead to deep valleys and rivers crossed by zebras, elephants, and springboks.

 

Sleeping there

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge: A luxurious lodge where you can listen to the silence of the desert.

5

Namib Desert

One of the oldest deserts in the world, a landscape that defies the imagination with its pure lines and an extraordinary palette of colours : apricot, orange and red sands under a very deep blue sky. Sublime and unspoiled.

 

Sleeping there

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge: In the heart of the Namib Rand Reserve, perched on a rocky escarpment, an extraordinary haven of luxury and refinement.

6

Damaraland

An austere and wild region, with tormented landscapes, one of the last territories on the continent where zebras, oryx, giraffes, and black rhinoceros live outside the boundaries of a national park. You'll also discover some of the oldest rock carvings in southern Africa.

 

Sleeping there

Doro Nawas: A pleasant lodge, ideally located for the best chance of observing the desert's elephants.

7

The great south

In the heart of the Namaqualand Desert Plain, Fish River Canyon National Park is a remarkable nature reserve in Africa in terms of its size and geological richness.

 

Sleeping there

Fish River Lodge: A lodge of 20 contemporary chalets, set on the west side of the canyon. Ideal for exploring the canyon.

8

The Kalahari

Around the edges of Botswana, South Africa and Namibia, the Bochimans territory stretches out in a vast expanse of red dunes.

 

Sleeping there

Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge: Set on a dune, this ten-tent lodge benefits from an exceptional location in the heart of the savannah, with the dunes as its horizon. The property works to protect the Kalahari's native plants.
