Namibia Self-drive Safari

Namibia Self-drive Safari

In February of 2019 we had the opportunity to embark on a week long self-drive safari through the beautiful country of Namibia. Our nights were spent in unforgettable lodges like Little Kulala and Damaraland Camp while our days were full taking advantage of breathtaking landscapes and wildlife.

Driving from lodge to lodge in our well-outfitted 4x4 truck, we covered almost 3,452 kilometers (2,100 miles) most of which was a mix of sand and dirt roads. It was an adventure filled with all the comforts one could possibly hope for! Namibia is remarkably easy to navigate and we enjoyed the independence for which having our own set of wheels allowed.

As you can see from the video above, Namibia is full of changing landscapes from mountains to ocean to deserts and everything in between. We hope you enjoy this this video as much as we enjoyed shooting it!
