Namibia

Home to some incredible national parks and game reserves of various geographical makeup, Namibia is a fantastic place for a game viewing safari with few other wildlife spectators in sight. The impressive red sand dunes of Sossusvlei make for an unforgettable sight, while just a few miles away you can spot lions stalking their prey in the wild.
