Beautiful & unexpected landscapes with smaller red dunes and golden grass, transient rivers, trees and fossil watercourses cover Namibia’s Kalahari desert. With much more rainfall than an average desert, the Kalahari is classified as a fossil desert. The frequent rainfall provides water wildlife, supporting mammals, birds, plant life, reptiles and amphibians. A highlight would be to spot one of the cheetah’s who calls the Kalahari their home, in action. But the Kalahari is probably most famous for its original human inhabitants, the Bushmen. The Fish River Canyon is the second largest canyon in the world, stretching 160 kilometres through southern Namibia, and paints a picture of extreme erosion, displaying layers of pink, purples, blues and greys. Take in breathtaking views from its flat, barren plateau or bravely descend its steep walls and hike along its twisting foreign landscape, following the Fish River’s tread on one of the various hiking trails. Luxury lodges dotted across the desert landscape provide spa therapies and activities making it a fabulous desert holiday adventure.

The rains come between December and April. Rainy season brings wonderful birdlife, but game viewing is generally better during the dry months. May to August is bone dry with no rain at all, true desert conditions with cold nights and from September to October the days become hotter. During the rainy season the deserts turns into a green paradise, with newborn wildlife and migrating herds of plains game. From this point of view December/January can be considered the best time to visit.


Both the Kalahari and Fish River Canyon sport dramatic views and spectacular photographic opportunities, a definite must-see in Namibia. For adventure lovers, take the arduous hike into Fish River Canyon. Game viewing in the Kalahari is provided by the great selection of luxury lodges and ensures a unique and unforgettable Namibian Safari experience.



We recommend combining a trip to the Fish River Canyon and the Kalahari with the other highlights of Namibia, such as the dunes at Sosssusvlei, the Intrepid Forest in Damaraland or Etosha National Park. Direct flights connect Namibia with Cape Town which is a popular itinerary combination, or with Kruger National Park, or head East to Botswana for a mokoro adventure in the Okavango Delta or Makgadikgadi Pans.
