More about a Namibia 4x4 tours
Namibia tours will take you through a unique array of landscapes, from the bone-dry martian environment of the Kalahari Desert to the infamous Skeleton Coast. Each is oddly beautiful, though, and some offer other, more extreme tourism options, like sandboarding and skydiving. Namibia 4×4 tours are also becoming more popular, and Planet Ride is at the forefront of that movement with top-notch guides and unforgettable excursions. With our trips, you can journey across southern Africa with a safari in Namibia’s massive Mahango National Park, or immerse in the unique local cultures as you meet with the Himbas and the Bushmen peoples. If you would like to spend some time in the city, tours often start and end in the larger population centers. The capital of Windhoek boasts plenty to see, do, and eat. One facet that catches the attention of most visitors is the architecture. Buildings across the country, as well as many other aspects of the culture, have a decidedly German influence, which stems back to the days of 19th and 20th-century colonialism.
The mind-blowing geography and wildlife of Namibia really cannot be exaggerated. The country’s constitution is one of only a few in the entire world that specifically addresses conservation and protection of natural resources. With natural features like the 100-mile long and 17-mile wide Fish River Canyon, the oddly shaped quiver tree, and ten percent of the entire world’s succulent species, it’s easy to understand why! Namibia safari tours will take you further off the beaten track and into these wild and wonderful environments than you ever could have imagined!
