Namibia offers two diverse landscapes from the open bush of the north and central Namibia, where wildife is abundant, to the barren and desolate coastal strip notorious for its huge sand dunes.
Namibia boasts the largest population of cheetah in Southern Africa, not contained within national parks. There are also over 20 species of antelope in Namibia, including the eland, Damara dik-dik and the iconic gemsbok with its black and white markings with long symmetrical horns. Smaller mammals often sighted in Namibia include jackal, mongoose, antbear and honey badger.
Whilst Namibia offers attractions and landscape enjoyable throughout the year, if you wish to visit Etosha, it is best to do so between May to August when the rainfall is low. This results in many of the animals gathering around the waterholes often situated near the lodges. The animals tend to roam further away in the rainy season with water more readily available.
