Namibia is home to a range of unique indigenous cultures, with a variety of ethnic groups whose lifestyles and linguistics are far removed from the western industrial norm. This itinerary explores the north of the country with guided visits to meet the Himba, San-Bushman and Herero people, three very different but equally fascinating communities. There is also ample opportunity to enjoy Namibia’s sensational landscapes and the teeming wildlife of Etosha.
