Track animals with San Bushmen in Namibia

Namibia is one of the least crowded destinations on Earth, home to the highest sand dunes and the world’s most ancient desert; experience its sheer natural beauty and learn about the prolific wildlife from local tribesmen.

When to go: April – October

- Spend time with the Himba tribe, a semi-nomadic people, who have made the barren landscape of Kaokoland their home. You will learn about their culture and how they carve out a way of life in the desert

- Head out on a boat ride up the Kunene River to spot crocodiles and a variety of birdlife, before stopping at a scenic point for a gourmet lunch in the wild that will be set up for your arrival

- Explore the sand dunes and vast landscape on quad bikes. You’ll follow a guide, who will lead you to the hidden gems of the nearby area

- Track desert elephants – these animals are free-roaming, within a huge area, so tracking them requires local knowledge and, potentially, patience. While elephants are the undoubted highlight, the region offers further great viewing: timeless landscapes; and a diverse range of animals including zebra, rhinos, antelope and giraffe

- Learn how to read the wonders and ways of the bush with a remote San Bushman village in the Tsumkwe area. A mobile camp will be built for your exclusive visit and on arrival you’ll be met by the tribe leaders, who will welcome you to their home. Your camp is fairly basic, but here the experience takes priority. A chef will be on hand to cook you dinner in your camp and a translator will be with you at all times. You’ll join the San Bushmen on a walk; they will show you how to forage for edible plants, where to find underground water, and how to track animals through the bush

- Take a private boat to see the Cape seal colonies in Cape Cross – there are around 10,000 seals here when at its busiest. Hop off the boat and wade through shallow, crystal-clear waters to a luxury lunch on the sands of fresh lobster and local cuisine

- Explore the epic sand dunes of the Namib Desert with a guide, with a picnic lunch under a Camel Thorn tree
