Desert Game Drives


Namibia is not as well-known for its wildlife viewing as nearby countries South Africa and Botswana, but the animals that it does have are fascinating results of evolution and are exciting to seek out and study. Game drives will typically lead guests to see desert-adapted elephants (who are smaller than their relatives elsewhere in the continent), giraffes, baboons, ostrich, springbok, oryx, hyenas, jackals and the enigmatic and highly endangered desert-adapted lions. Namibia, too, is home to 25% of the world’s population of free cheetahs.
