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. Also included are 3 amazing nights in a private reserve next to Etosha National Park, a rewarding safari experience that takes place on both the private reserve and in the park.

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: Damaraland Camp , Damaraland

We continue our journey by road for approximately 5 hours (280 kilometres / 174 miles) partly up the legendary Skeleton Coast (named for the numerous shipwrecks the treacherous shores have claimed over the years). From here we drive the back roads through the game productive Ugab riverbed, travelling north past the Brandberg Mountain – the second largest monolith on earth – to Damaraland. This all-day excursion with lunch en route ends with our arrival at Damaraland Camp.

A land of stark beauty, the area boasts a varied assortment of desert-adapted wildlife and incredible geological formations.

Days 6 – 8: Desert Rhino Camp , Damaraland

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.

Days 8-10: Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp , Palmwag Concession

This morning we drive to Doro Nawas airstrip for our light aircraft transfer to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.A land of rugged scenery, this remote part of Namibia is famed for plant and animal life that has adapted superbly to the harsh environment of mountains, vast plains, dunes and dry riverbeds. 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 10 to 14: Ongava Game Lodge , Etosha

After breakfast we fly to Doro Nawas airstrip this morning before driving to Ongava Game Reserve on the boundary of Etosha National Park. Etosha remains the highest density wildlife area within Namibia, its fame justly acknowledged. Our stay here will allow us time to explore both Etosha National Park as well as the Ongava Game Reserve.

Day 14: Return Windhoek

After breakfast we bid farewell to our adventure as we return to Windhoek by road, arriving at midday.
