Namibia is one of the most spectacular countries on the African continent.
From the oldest desert with the highest sand dunes in the world to rich savanna grasslands, from shipwrecked beaches to sheltered lagoons, from Damara and Herero tribes to ancient rock paintings, Namibia has it all.
If this isn't enough, it also has one of the best game reserves in Africa, the magnificent Etosha National Park. As well as an abundance of large mammals, such as giraffe, rhino, elephant and lion, this area boasts more than 630 bird species.
It is fascinating to see how animal, plant and indeed human populations have adapted to survive in this arid yet stunning country.
What makes this trip responsible?
Cheetah Conservation Fund
The cheetah is the fastest animal on earth, capable of reaching speeds of 75mph and accelerating faster than most sports cars. Unfortunately the cheetah is also the most endangered big cat in Africa. On this trip we visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund (CCF), a charity set up to research cheetahs and educate the public, with the aim of protecting this magnificent cat and it's habitat.
We will meet the centre's resident cheetahs (who cannot be released into the wild) and learn about the conservation efforts taking place in Namibia at the education centre and museum.
