Johan Steenhuisen, safariFRANK founder, says Namibia is the perfect location for adventurers keen to venture to Africa and start exploring the continent.
“One of the least populated countries on Earth, Namibia has incredible landscapes, wildlife and large open spaces with a wide array of ecosystems, ” Mr Steenhuisen said.
“There is a fantastic variety of wildlife in Namibia, from lions and zebras to flamingos and elephants. Seeing these animals alongside the magnificent landscapes will make for an amazing experience. Travellers will fall in love with this wild and beautiful country.”
“With excellent infrastructure and facilities, Namibia is also one of the safest African countries to visit.”
safariFRANK offers a wide range of options to see the spectacular sights of Namibia, ranging from self-drive safaris to flying safaris. The activity based adventure of these trips get travellers up close and personal with Africa’s wildlife.
The country is split into two vastly different locations. Northern Namibia is home to Etosha National Park, brimming with an abundance of unusual wildlife, as well as the wild and remote areas of Damaraland, Skeleton Coast and Kaokoveld, offering dramatic rugged mountain ranges, dry riverbeds and unique fauna.
Southern Namibia offers vast plains that disappear into the horizon, breathtaking sand dunes and dramatic canyons.
Both northern and southern destinations are fantastic for families and photographers alike. The impressive sand dunes of Sossusvlei juxtaposed against the blue skyline make an astonishing backdrop for any photographer.
“Our trip to the Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon in the world and one of Africa’s best kept secrets, is the perfect place to visit for the first-time safari adventurer,” said Mr Steenhuisen.
“160km in length, 27km in width and 550m deep – visitors will be stunned by the spectacular vastness and beauty of the canyon.”
Keen adventurers can also choose to include a flying safari for a truly unique experience. For groups of four or more, a flight can be arranged to view the startlingly desolate Skeleton Coast, shipwrecks and deserted mining camps in Southern Namibia from above.
The dilapidated town of Kolmanskop on the edge of the desert is a must see in Southern Namibia. The ghostly diamond mining town was abandoned 40 years after it was built, and fights a daily battle against the ravaging winds and the risk of being engulfed by moving sand dunes.
safariFRANK also plans safaris to Botswana, South Africa and Zambia. From self-driving tours to walking, horse riding, kayaking or cycling, activities can be stitched together to create a truly individual experience for travellers.
safariFRANK provides remarkable experiences while helping conservation efforts in Africa. The low-impact ecotourism business plays an active role in conservation and helps make wilderness areas socially and economically viable for local communities.
