From its sweeping, white-crusted salt pans to its towering, rust-colored dunes, Namibia’s stunning desert landscapes are as spectacular as the resourceful flora and fauna that call them home. Join us for an 11-day journey across the world’s oldest desert in search of some of the most magnetic wildlife on the planet—from the spiny namaqua chameleon to the long-legged desert elephant. We’ll search for black rhinos in the shadow of Brandberg Mountain, photograph the sun-scorched trees of Deadvlei, and glimpse granite cliffs covered in ancient art. The trip will culminate with three nights in Etosha National Park, where we might find ourselves mingling with two types of big cats, a subspecies of giraffe found nowhere else in the world, and ghostly white, calcite-coated elephants. With the help of expert biologists and photographers, you’ll experience the day-to-day life of a field biologist and, alongside spectacular species—some of which are teetering on the brink of extinction—learn about matters of conservation from up close. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Windhoek are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 14 travelers.
