Detailed Description of this trip:

Namibia wildlife safaris are fantastic ways to see and witness Africa’s wildlife. Namibia, even though largely semi-desert, offers a range of wildlife. Damaraland, the northern stretch of the Namib, has become one of the most popular areas for Namibia wildlife safaris. Here, elephants have adapted to go without water for three to four days, giraffes can survive on only drinking water every few months, and black rhinos roam free in wilderness areas.
