Short, medium and long trips (and even longer or shorter if you want) cover the best cultural, wildlife and activity based adventures Namibia has to offer. Camp under the stars or have a bit of luxury in lodges and chalets, travel with a small group or a big one, overland truck or minivan - aaarrgghh, too hard to choose! So we made it easy and picked out the top 5 tours to Namibia - just for you.Namibia Top 5 Tours

Highlights of the Desert - 12 day Cape Town to Windhoek Discover the best Namibia has to offer. From the dry desert valleys in the south through rich cultural areas to some excellent game viewing in the north.

Cape Town to Windhoek Accommodated - 13 day Cape Town to Windhoek Gaze at the spectacle that greeted the early explorers as Table Mountain appears to rise from the sea, then explore the deserts of Namibia where giant sand dunes merge with the cold Atlantic Ocean.

Magic Namibia - 14 day Swakopmund to Victoria Falls So much to see! From the rolling dune fields and adventure paradise of Swakopmund to Namibia's own Matterhorn - Spitzkoppe, the wildlife extravaganza of Etosha to the quiet water of the Okavango Delta.

The ancient overland route from Cairo to Cape Town is the ultimate in Trans Africa Expeditions! This is REAL overland travel at its best! If you want air conditioning, hot showers every night and a cook then this expedition is not for you. Expect to get "stuck in" as you cover the major sights between Cairo and Cape Town, both on and off the beaten track.

Relax on the shores of Lake Malawi, cruise through Zimbabwe to walk with Lions and raft the mighty Zambezi at the base of majestic Victoria Falls. Southern Africa awaits with Botswana's famous Okavango Delta and Namibia's jewel - Etosha National Park - and the glorious Namib Desert with its massive sand dunes.
