For #TravelTuesday this week, we’re focussing on Namibia. This southern Africa delight is a country famed for its diverse wildlife, the world’s highest sand dunes, stark desert landscapes, small forgotten towns and ghost-like coastal scenes. You just have to get there. We’ve packaged and priced a luxury 8 night flying safari in Namibia that’s bound to get tongues wagging. You’ll view Namibia from the air and spend nights cocooned in 5 star luxury lodges, exploring 4 different areas in Namibia. Included is an adventurous 4×4 trip, and plenty of indulgent evenings under the canopy of stars.
