Namibia: A Desert Wildlife & Landscape Safari '18

Journey to Namibia and discover its pristine landscapes, abundant wildlife and eclectic mosaic of cultures. You will be accompanied by McGill’s own Dr. Colin Chapman, a professor in the Department of Anthropology and McGill School of Environment, and Canada Research Chair in Primate Ecology and Conservation.

Inhabited from the dawn of time by the San, also known as the “Bushmen”, the country’s arid climate and rugged terrain have left Namibia and its spectacular natural attractions in a relatively pristine state. Explore the towering sand dunes at Sossusvlei, one of the most arid places on earth and home to fascinating assortment of desert creatures. From Sandwich Bay’s lush coastal wetlands travel on to Damaraland’s dry river beds, where you will be on the lookout for desert-adapted African elephants and ancient rock-cut engravings.

Etosha National Park is a quintessential wildlife experience. You will enjoy excellent views of many large mammals, including giraffe, blue wildebeest, greater kudu, springbok, plains zebra, and black-faced impala at gleaming white salt pans or congregating at waterholes in the evening. There will also be a chance to see both the white and black rhinoceros. Wherever you go, you will encounter impressive bird life.

This extraordinary trip features sunshine, warm temperatures, and comfortable lodging. Those wanting to extend their African adventure can take an optional post-tour extension to Botswana and Victoria Falls.

I hope that you will join McGill’s study leader Colin Chapman on this journey to an unspoiled country, where you will experience surreal landscapes, discover a rich natural and cultural heritage, meet Namibia’s friendly people, and view wildlife to your heart’s content.
