EverGreen Escapes, Seattle-based nature, adventure and culinary tour operator, is launching its African travel program with the Ultimate Namibia Safari: 13 days of exploring one of Africa’s best-kept secrets, from hiking the world’s tallest sand dunes to enjoying world-class ocean-side dining in Swakopmund; tracking the only free-roaming population of endangered Black Rhino left on Earth to relaxing with sundowners at some of the best safari lodges Africa has to offer.

Hosted by EverGreen Escapes’ lead naturalist and Escape Artist guide, Tyler Davis, this two-week experience will provide an in-depth experience in a country known for its rugged beauty, unique wildlife, and iconic culture.

The trip will run from Nov. 4th – Nov. 16th, 2012, and is limited to groups of only 10 travelers.


Located on the Western coast of Southern Africa, Namibia is recognized as one of the foremost up-and-coming destinations for adventure travel. Defined by vast expanses of dramatic landscapes and coastline, it is home to unique communities of desert-adapted wildlife. And, as the world’s second least-densely populated nation, it is a favorite destination of celebrities seeking isolated and undisturbed holidays.

Namibia is unique in the world as the only country whose entire coastline is protected, and as the first country to include environmental protection in its constitution As a result, it’s often considered to be Africa’s best conservation success story, with dozens of community-based natural resource management projects bringing real economic and social value to local communities through conservation.  It is home to the only remaining population of free-roaming Black Rhinos and the only expanding population of free-roaming lions on Earth.
