Desert Dune Safari

Price from US$4900 per person sharing

Namibia is a land of stunning landscapes, endless skies, barren deserts, rugged mountains and spectacular wildlife. This 9 night Exploration explores some of the most remote areas of this fascinating land; areas that have been rarely explored by others, making this a true journey of discovery.

Like any trip to Namibia, the dunes of Sossusvlei are not to be missed and we therefore begin our journey here. We continue to Swakopmund to take in the amazing marine life just offshore, then on to the secluded and dramatic coastline of the Skeleton Coast littered with historic remnants of shipwrecks and the rugged and rocky landscape of Palmwag where the last free-roaming black rhino rove. The activities provide a wide range of differing experiences, from a dolphin cruise with private beach lunch, to tracking rhino and climbinb the Namib’s great dunes.

Tailor - made Itinerary

As with all the tours on our website, this is just an example of the safaris we are able to arrange. We take pride in creating holidays and safaris from scratch, placing particular emphasis on matching the destinations and properties to your budget. Contact us now to start the process of arranging your dream holiday and safari.

Days 1 – 3: Kulala Desert Lodge, Kulala Wilderness Reserve 

Begin your journey by driving through the Khomas Hochland mountains and down into the dune-filled Sossusvlei region. En route, we enjoy a lunch. 

Explore the famous red dunes of Sossusvlei and our 37 000-hectare private reserve where you will discover life in one of the world’s oldest and most arid deserts. 

 Days 3 – 5: Hansa Hotel, Swakopmund 

Our light aircraft transfer to Swakopmund Airport is in fact a spectacular scenic flight (weather permitting) that flies over the only well-preserved shipwreck in Namibia, endless dune fields and even an old diamond mining settlement.

Discover the town of Swakopmund and bed down in the historic Hansa Hotel that forms part of city’s architectural culture.  On Day 4, we explore the ice-blue Atlantic coast on a boat cruise (weather permitting) as well as the imposing Sandwich Harbour dune fields by 4x4. The adventure is rounded off with a private seafood lunch before driving back to Walvis Bay. 

Day 5 – 6 : Terrace Bay Lodge, Skeleton Coast National Park 

We continue our journey by road for approximately 380 kilometres / 236 miles up the legendary Skeleton Coast (named for the numerous ships the treacherous shores have claimed over the years). You can expect to see the fascinating lichen plains at Wlotskasbaken, remains of the Zelia shipwreck near Henties Bay and the SW Seal shipwreck near Ugabmund. We also take in the ghostly remains of mining operations near Toscanini. Driving time is about five hours, excluding any stops. 

Days 6 – 8: Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, Palmwag Concession 

We continue through Skeleton Coast National Park to the Möwe Bay Museum and then stop and admire the remains of the Suiderkus shipwreck. Other attractions are the Klein Oase and Auses Springs hidden in the dunes, an intriguing “roaring” dune and spectacular desert scenery combined with whatever desert-adapted wildlife presents itself. The distance to camp is only 140 kilometres / 86 miles, however, given the gravel roads the driving time is approximately 5 hours.

A land of rugged scenery, this remote part of Namibia is inhabited by plant and animal life that has adapted superbly to the harsh environment of mountains, vast plains, dunes and dry riverbeds. 

Days 8 – 10: Desert Rhino Camp, Palmwag Concession 

Another exciting day on the road to Desert Rhino Camp through the rugged, rocky and mountainous Palmwag Concession brings with it the opportunity of seeing giraffe, oryx and springbok.

The speciality of the area is its stable population of the endangered desert-adapted black rhino (the largest concentration in the world outside a national park), which are monitored and protected by the Save the Rhino Trust. 

Day 10: Return Windhoek

After breakfast we bid farewell to our adventure as we transfer to the Doro Nawas Airstrip to return to Windhoek.
