A Diverse Desert

A Storied Expanse of Sand and Sky

The Namibia has less rainfall than any other country in sub-Saharan Africa, and the Namib and Kalahari Deserts dominate the landscape with their gravel plains, high sand dunes, and salt pans. There’s little rainfall - most water comes from groundwater - but seasonally, some rivers do flood, providing just enough water for plants and animals to survive.

Indigenous people live here, too, and in the deserts, the San, Nama and Damara people might well be your guides. Their knowledge of the landscape and wildlife has been passed down through the generations, and when you travel with them, the journey is an opportunity to open yourself up to their ancient wisdom, soaking up the enchantment and mythos of the desert.
 
In Damaraland and along the Skeleton Coast, you’ll find Namibia’s big game. The desert rhino, desert elephant, and Angolan giraffe have all evolved over the millennia; the animals you see are the heroic survivors who have adapted to the drought and benefited from a remarkable intergenerational understanding of where to find reliable water sources.
