The rock art of the Khoisan people, the focus of our tour, is a tradition which has continued over thousands of years. The story of this aspect of one human culture is brought to life with exciting immediacy by the stunning surroundings: landscapes almost unaltered by humans, and still populated by the same wild creatures depicted in the earliest art.

Our guide lecturer Dr Paul Bahn is a well-known authority on rock art. More than half of this tour will be dedicated to experiencing all that Namibia has to offer beyond its past – excursions into the desert, onto the sea and by plane over the famous dunes (should you so wish), as well as plentiful game viewing. A trip of a lifetime.

  • An all-embracing tour to Namibia: from rock art to game reserves and river cruises, we experience the many facets of this beautiful country
  • Incredible rock art sites and incomparable landscapes, populated by the same living game depicted by the prehistoric artists
  • Enjoy exclusive visits to remote sites that are inaccessible to the general public, where we see spectacular examples of Khoisan rock art
