Activities in Namibia

If you are just looking for a bit of excitement, or are a real adrenaline junkie, the activities in Namibia are for you. The activities in Namibia are very diverse, from the land to the sea to the sky, whatever you fancy, we have it and Namvic can organize everything for you.

Swakopmund and Walvis Bay are the adventure capital of Namibia with activities on the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib desert dunes, and over them! Here the dunes have an epic encounter with the ocean and there are several great ways to see this. To see it from ground level we highly recommend a full day tour at Sandwich Harbour. Many companies offer a half day tour but then you can only do the dunes and not go to Sandwich Harbour itself due to the tides. But if you prefer your activities up above, why not go for a scenic flight over the Namib desert all the way south to Sossusvlei and get a better view of the beauty of the desert landscapes. Or you can be a bit more adventurous and do a sky-dive over the dunes! Just let our tour consultants know what level of adrenaline you are looking for for your activity in Namibia and they will include it into your tailor made itinerary.

If you are looking for a more relaxing activity in Namibia we can suggest some excellent spas around the country in some of the most beautiful lodges. Get a massage while looking out over the Kwando river surrounded by the sounds of tropical birds. Or for a more ‘natural’ activity why not go for a swim in some natural hot springs in the middle of the desert? It is not easy to find so ask our tour consultants and Namibia experts for advice on how to find it.

One of the most popular activities in Namibia, despite its price, is the Hot air balloon over the Namib desert in the Sossusvlei area. It is a once in a life time experience and probably the most memorable activity you will do in Namibia. You will go up in the balloon just as the sun rises over the Naukluft mountains. See the dunes from above as they are lit by the rising sun.
Another unmissable activity in Namibia is a guided safari. Perfect for if you are on a self-drive tour, have a guide just for a few hours in a private reserve or national park and use the opportunity to ask them all your questions concerning the fauna and flora around you. Namibia has some excellent guide full of knowledge of the Namibian deserts and bush. Having a guide can really enrich your experiences in Namibia and make your safaris so much more interesting.

Whatever activity in Namibia you are looking for, just ask our tour consultants and they will organize everything for you.
