Etosha is one of the finest game reserves to be found in Southern Africa with more than 100 mammal species and 300 bird species to be found in the park.

Just park your car next to one of the many water holes, then wait and watch while a host of animals – lions, elephants, springboks, gemsboks to name a few – come not two by two but by the hundreds

Fish River Canyon
This is the second largest canyon in the world after the well-known Grand Canyon. The immensity of this magnificent landscape is truly breathtaking and astonishing. The towering rock faces and deep ravines were formed by water erosion and the collapse of the valley due to movements in the earth’s crust over 500 million years ago. The environment of this spectacular scenery embraces a number of habitats bringing together several species of mammals, an abundance of reptiles, insects and fish that live in natural pools and the Fish River itself.
Home of the Himba tribe in Damaraland lives one of only two populations of desert elephants in the world. Numbering fewer than 2,000, these are the tallest elephants in the world. Damaraland is also home to the elusive and endangered black rhino which is a must see. Both these species are favourite subjects of our photographic safaris to capture that perfect moment. Damaraland also has a World Heritage site called Twyfelfontein, with Bushman art that dates to 25,000 years ago, and Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg.
