Namibian Discovery

Overview

Namibian Discovery

Diverse Namibia offers a holiday experience like no other. Situated on the south-western coast of Africa, the country has a landscape that encompasses swathes of desert, red sand dunes, eerie forests and towering mountains.

Its cultural credentials are also significant; you'll be able to see rock paintings dating as far back as 26000 BC in Twyfelfontein and experience a vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere in the capital, Windhoek, which has thrived in its multiculturalism ever since the fall of apartheid at the end of the 1980s.

Namibia is unique. Starkly beautiful deserts, deep red sand dunes, lively safari plains and eerie coastlines lend an enigmatic, fairytale aspect to this remarkable land.

Travel with Titan to discover the very best of Namibia - natural wonders from big cats to sweeping sands and historical treasures such as the Neolithic rock art of Twyfelfontein and the German colonial architecture of Windhoek, with time also to relax in the resort of Swakopmund, flanked by desert and sea.

The sense of adventure is palpable, yet we do not compromise on comfort at any time. A holiday to Namibia really is a holiday like no other.

Today is a leisurely one and this morning you will find one of the largest collections of rock paintings and engravings in Africa.
