Top 5 reasons to visit and volunteer in Namibia

  • Night skies – stargazing while under the dark skies of the Namib desert is an incredible experience, it’s hard to distinguish when you are awake and when you are dreaming!

  • Remote wilderness – as Namibia is the world’s 3rd least populated country you can travel for hours through without seeing another person, this makes your encounters with the wildlife even more special.

  • Sand dune safari - in Namibia it’s not just about the big 5 safari animals, you can explore the dunes to find the little 5; from dancing lizards, side winding snakes to dew-drinking beetles. The sand dunes are an easy day trip from Swakopmund.

  • Etosha National Park - during the dry season you only need to find a watering hole in this national park in order to locate a whole host of wildlife including zebras, elephants and giraffe, the perfect African photo opportunity

  • Fish river canyon - take a selfie at Africa’s largest canyon and you could be mistaken for being at the infamous Grand Canyon in America.
