Self-drive holidays in Namibia

Self-drive safari in Namibia

October 20th, 2009

This self-drive tour around Namibia is just the sort of thing I’d love to do. The tour takes you to Etosha and Damaraland, and allows you to meet Himba people and San Bushman living traditional lifestyles. You start at  Okunjima – home to the AfriCat Foundation – where amongst others you will be able to track radio collared leopards and see the feeding of the resident cheetahs. In Damaraland you will be guided through the dry river beds to encounter the uniquely adapted desert elephants. Read lots more here
