Noon Optimist Travel and Adventure Series "The Road to Namibia"

All ticket sales are final. No refunds or exchanges.

Namibia, one of the safest and most visually stunning countries in all of Africa, is poised to become the “next big thing” tourist destination for world travel. Our journey begins in Cape Town, South Africa, and the Cape of Good Hope, and then ventures into the deserts, wild coastline and fabulous safari parks of Namibia, amazing Erindi Private Game Reserve and spectacular Etosha Park. Along the “Skeleton Coast,” the carcasses of ships and humans remind us of the frailty of man when pitted against the vast Atlantic Ocean. We will explore the massive sand dunes of Swakopmund, and meet the mysterious Himba tribes, who extend their hair in amazing ways and coat their skin with mud against the noon day sun. At Victoria Falls, we will swim with crocodiles and journey to the edge of the abyss for breathtaking views. A great safari destination, Namibia is one of the wonders of Africa.
