On this small group adventure safari in Namibia, we start by travelling north from Windhoek, taking in Okonjima's big cats, waterhole wildlife at Etosha, desert-adapted elephant and black rhino in Damaraland, stone age rock art at Twyfelfontein, Swakopmund's fun and thrills, and the giant sand dunes at Sossusvlei, before returning to the capital. This 2-week, small group holiday is chock-full of highlights and is a great introduction to the country's diversity, a true Namibia Adventure.

Wildlife enthusiasts cannot fail to be entranced by cheetahs and leopards at the famous AfriCat Foundation, and are sure to be in their element on game drives in Etosha National Park and among herds of elephants by the Hoanib River, while the chance to track black rhino in the wild surely ranks as a highlight. Those in search of action can revel in nature walks, take their pick of water and land-based activities in the country's adventure capital, climb dunes and marvel at canyons. History and culture lovers will marvel at San Bushman rock paintings and engravings plus the chance to meet Herero and Damara families. Photographers, meanwhile, will have to pinch themselves to check that they're not dreaming the landscapes, from desert to coast, and dune to valley.

You stay in modest lodges along the way, selected for their prime locations, and have a wonderful four nights camping in different sites in Damaraland. All chores are carried out by the staff, so you need only sit back, enjoy the views, sip a drink by the campfire and relish the tasty food, later falling asleep in your dome tent, aware of nature all around you.

This is a small group holiday, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of ten people. This style of travel has many benefits: ready-made travelling companions, the ability to venture off the beaten track, the convenience of pre-planned travel arrangements, a professional guide for the duration of the trip, and great value for money.

This Namibia adventure holiday is designed for people who are moderately active and mobile, and not those who have trouble walking. There is no set minimum age, though it's probably not suited to young children under 12 years.
