Arid Space, Seaside and Endless Dunes

Kick-start your adventure with a luxurious stay in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, exploring the towering red sand dunes of the Sossusvlei region. Embark on nature drives, quad biking trips and marvel at the awe-inspiring night sky with a resident astronomer and a high-powered telescope. Your journey then continues to the vibrant coastal town of Swakopmund where you will be able to explore its many wonders on a variety of sightseeing tours before making your way to the Kaokoland, home to the Himba people.

This beautiful destination offers activities such as nature drives, boating on the Kunene River, walks amongst the mountains and cultural excursions. Lastly, your sojourn culminates in the Ongava Game Reserve, situated along the southern boundary of Etosha National Park. Etosha is one of Africa’s great wildlife parks. Delight in twice-daily game drives and visit hides that overlook popular watering holes.

Himba

Day 1 - Windhoek

Upon your arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport, you will be met by our representative who will assist you to your road transfer to Olive Exclusive Boutique Hotel.

One of the highlights of any trip to Namibia is a visit to Sossusvlei in the heart of the enormous, almost 50 000km² Namib-Naukluft Park. Easily accessible to visitors, Sossusvlei is a clay pan, only rarely filled by water, but a place of awe-inspiring beauty. Visitors to the region will be left spellbound by the magnificent ochre-coloured sand dunes, which rise over 300m into the sky – the highest sand dunes in the world.

Prepare for an extraordinary adventure into Namibia’s most scenic and remote corners with a one-night stay in an ensuite junior suite at the Olive Exclusive Boutique Hotel. Your stay includes dinner and breakfast.

Days 2, 3 and 4 - Sossusvlei

After breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip followed by a scheduled light aircraft fight to Sossusvlei Desert Lodge.

Unwind for 3 nights at andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge in a desert suite with an ensuite bathroom and a private veranda. Your stay includes three meals daily, soft drinks, house wines, local brand spirits and beers, teas and coffees, refreshments on game drives, laundry, safari activities and one Sossusvlei excursion.

Adventures include scenic drives with an opportunity to encounter a variety of desert-adapted animals such as gemsbok, zebra, springbok, bat-eared fox, aardwolf, caracal and jackal. Guided nature walks and hiking trails are also available, as are guided quad bike trails on set paths through the dunes. A resident astronomer and high-powered telescope provide breathtaking views of the clear desert skies.

Days 5 and 6 - Swakopmund

After breakfast you will be transferred to the airstrip followed by a scheduled light aircraft flight to Swakopmund Airport then a road transfer to your guesthouse.

This charming little coastal retreat, on Namibia’s western coast, retains a strong German flavour – from the cobbled streets and picturesque buildings, down to the typical German restaurants and pubs. This town is traditionally a holiday spot for locals and foreigners alike, with many opportunities for adventure sports and some good old-fashioned fun. Swakopmund is an ideal place to relax after a few days in the desert; wash off the sand and sample some of the finely-brewed local beer and renowned Swakopmund fare such as fish, lobster and the utterly delicious Swakopmund oysters.

Spend two nights at the Swakopmund Guesthouse in a luxury room with ensuite bathroom. Your stay is on a bed and breakfast basis.

Days 7 and 8 - Skeleton Coast

After a mouth-watering breakfast you will be transferred to Swakopmund Airport followed by your light aircraft flight to Doro Nawas, then your scheduled light aircraft flight to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.

Kaokoland is one of the last remaining wilderness areas in Southern Africa. It is a world of incredible mountain scenery, a refuge for the rare desert dwelling elephant, black rhino and giraffe, and the home of the Himba people. Although it is harsh and offers little respite at midday, the rugged landscape is especially attractive during the early morning and late afternoon, when it is transformed into softly glowing pastel shades.

Spend 2 nights at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp in a Tent with ensuite bathroom. Your stay includes, all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, Namibia VAT & tourism levy and local drinks (excludes premium imported brands & champagne).

Flanked by rugged hills, the camp offers breath-taking scenery and the chance to enjoy sightings of Hartmann's mountain zebra, giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, kudu, and even magnificent desert elephant, lion, leopard and cheetah in a truly unique environment.

The Ongava Game Reserve shares an unfenced boundary with the Etosha National Park, enabling large game such as elephant and lion to move freely between the Park and the Reserve.

This exclusive tented camp provides its guests with an intimate, rustic bush experience in eight classic Meru-style tents, each with an ensuite shower and flush w.c. A busy, floodlit waterhole is situated at eye level in front of the camp. Each tent is insect-proofed and features a night-light. Your stay includes all meals, all local drinks, laundry and scheduled activities.

Adventures revolve around day and night wildlife-viewing drives, visiting hides that overlook waterholes and walks with experienced guides. Game drives and daytrips into the easily accessible Okaukuejo area of Etosha National Park are rewarding, with sightings of lion, elephant, gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, and white and black rhino.
