Trip report: Namibia, custom tour (Aug 2010) by Tropical Birding

Guided by Ken Behrens.

Namibia offers a remarkable combination of beautiful landscapes, unique birds, and some of the best mammal viewing in the world. All of these can be experienced while based in excellent accommodation and enjoying great food. This custom trip was designed to take in Namibiaʼs nearendemic birds, the mammals of Etosha National Park, plus the red dunes of Sossusvlei and the rock engravings of Twyfelfontein. Unlike our normal tours, it did not visit northern Namibiaʼs Caprivi Strip or the Okavango ʻpanhandleʼ of Botswana. Throughout the trip, we were based in fantastic lodges that are a real feature of this country. Many people seem to think that the combination of opulent lodges and fantastic landscapes and mammals is endemic to East Africa, but this is far from the truth, as this trip certainly demonstrated!
