An excellent although very different Safari encounter and one of the most picture-perfect landscapes in the world. A safari holiday in Namibia, an experience that will live with you forever. The country has everything from high-end lodges to camping sites, and it is very accessible. Namibia can be broken into two pieces a Coastal Dessert and African Savannah. The oldest Dessert in the world and perhaps one the most scenic and Iconic where you will stand in silence as the landscape stretches away from you and you will get a sense that this is what the first man on Mars will experience. The experience in its entirety seems to touch your very being as silence is so acute it has a presence. Most people travelling to Namibia go to see a site comparable to nowhere else in the world. The sheer joy of seeing a desert Elephant or Rhino standing on this lunar landscape must be seen to be believed.
