    Jane's verdict:

    Namibia’s stark beauty will seduce you - vast dunes, endless deserts, the shipwreck-strewn Skeleton Coast and velvety night skies. Sleep under the stars or in dreamy lodges, while in the game parks you can track rhino, leopard and cheetah. The dry season and best game viewing months coincide with the UK's popular summer wedding season, and there's no jetlag either.

    Mahlatini says

    Hot-air ballooning over starkly beautiful desert followed by a Champagne breakfast, the chance to track endangered Black Rhino, private desert picnics and intimate camps in vast open spaces – Namibia is full of dreamy honeymoon experiences.

    • Ideal for summer weddings
    • Self-drive option
    • Unique experiences

    This unique and beautiful country, with endless landscapes and wide horizons, is a feast of colour – from red and orange sand dunes (almost the entire country is covered in the desert sands of the Kalahari and Namib) through the white saltpans of Etosha to the deep blue Atlantic Ocean.

    Highlights include Fish River Canyon, the wildlife-rich Etosha National Park, Sossusvlei in the Namib-Naukluft National Park which is home to the highest sand dunes in the world, the Skeleton Coast – resting place of many shipwrecks – and Damaraland, home to the desert black rhino and desert elephant.

    The dry season, most popular for visitors, is between April and end-October (when it is also Malaria-free). Whilst Namibia offers so much more than game viewing, the ultimate months to see game are from June to October.

    As specialists, our expert team will tailor-make your honeymoon in Namibia precisely to suit your interests, budget and available time.

    For the ultimate honeymoon, enjoy two distinct experiences in our two week Wonders of Namibia and Botswana adventure. From a hot air balloon ride over the stark Namib desert to the teeming wildlife and lush floodplains of Botswana, it’s a breathtaking combination.
