Getting behind the wheel and setting out on the open roads of Africa on a self-drive safari is an incredibly romantic notion for many people, and there is no better place to start than in Namibia. The landscape that rolls past is epic in proportion, as is the wildlife, and Namibia is one of the safest countries on the continent.
The silence of the desert, the stars at night and the emptiness that stretches to the horizon provides a ready-made antidote to the stress of life. Treasure the ambience of Namibia - under the star studded skies, to the tune of the barking gecko and far cry of a jackal. Most Camp Sites offers shaded individual sites, each with its own toilet, basin, hot/cold shower, barbeque, kitchen wash-up facility and electricity
It’s the mix of experiences that you don’t get elsewhere in Africa, which sets Namibia apart as a great destination for a family holiday. Kayak with seals, track desert-adapted elephant, go dune sandboarding and spot constellations in the uninterrupted night sky. Younger children can look for sand-dwelling creatures in the desert, while teenagers can ride quad bikes through the dunes. Namibia is a giant, sandy adventure playground, with enough thrilling activities and abundant wildlife to - whisper it - make them forget about their phones.
This is a holiday destination that's all about the incredible landscapes and so a self-drive Namibia honeymoon is perfect for couples who love to be on the move with breathtaking backdrops. Alternatively, you can both choose to fly between camps by light aircraft and enjoy the topographical vistas from the plane. Whether you self-drive or fly, most Namibia honeymoons include attractive, characterful lodges, as well as some good quality rest camps in the national parks.
