Detailed Description of this trip:
The name Namibia was derived from the Namib Desert, one of the largest features in the country.The word Namib is related to the Bushman word for “the dry place.” Therefore a Namibia Safari is limited in scope to a few of the Nambia Safari National Parks like the Etosha National Park. Generally when desinging a Namiba Safari, we add on other actvities sucha s the Skeleton Coast, Cultural tribal tours, and the majestic Sand dues of Sossusvlei.
