overview

This week-long fly-in safari takes in Namibia's two absolute must-see destinations - Sossusvlei and Etosha National Park - and has you staying in sheer luxury at excellent desert lodges. Ideal for a honeymoon or romantic escape, this package leaves you with plenty of time at each destination to do as much or as little as you want.

First you will visit the majestic Sossusvlei Dunes of The Namib, the world's oldest desert. And not only will you experience first-hand the dramatic rolling dune fields of the Sossusvlei area but you'll also go on game drives in the nearby Kulula Wilderness Reserve or in the Namib Naukluft Park.

Then it's off to enjoy the wild beauty of Etosha National Park where you will experience exceptional game viewing while staying in exclusive luxury accommodation set in a private reserve adjoining the park itself.

Itinerary Highlights

  • Fly into Namibia's top 2 destinations
  • Stay at luxury lodges in unique settings
  • Enjoy game drives in Etosha
  • Discover Sossusvlei's dramatic dunes
  • See black & white rhino at Little Ongava

Day to Day Itinerary

Day 1

Begin your desert journey

Fly into Windhoek International Airport and transfer to your chartered flight for Sossusvlei - your travel time is about an hour. On landing you will be transferred by road to your accommodation - Little Kulala, a luxurious desert safari lodge with direct access to the Sossusvlei area.

Days 2-3

Take photos of the Dunes

You have two full days to explore this corner of The Namib Desert: with towering dunes that change colour from red to orange and from purple to gold, Sossusvlei is a photographer's dream but there's more in this area than meets the eye.

Go on game drives in the nearby Kulala Wilderness Reserve or Namib Naukluft Park - there aren't huge herds but there is plenty of specialist desert wildlife to search for as well as endemic birds and plants. Optional activities include hot-air ballooning over the dunes and horseback safaris.

Return to Little Kulala after a packed day to enjoy the beautiful desert sunset from the expansive deck and enjoy a cold sundowner drink. Needless to say, the night skies here are simply phenomenal.

Day 4

Fly north to Etosha National Park

Enjoy breakfast in The Namib before flying back to Windhoek in time to board your charter flight to Etosha National Park - travel time is about 4 hours. From here you will transfer to Little Ongava, an exceptional safari lodge set in the private Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha. Check in, grab a drink and start planning the days ahead.

Day 5-6

Enjoy great game viewing

You have two full days to explore both the Little Ongava Private Game Reserve and next-door Etosha National Park on guided morning and afternoon game drives. Exceptional game viewing awaits you: Etosha is home to healthy populations of elephant, lion, cheetah, zebra and giraffe, and is famous as one of Africa's last strongholds of the highly endangered black rhino.

It's highly diverse game viewing as well: Etosha is home to both classic savannah animals and desert specialists, and if you enjoy close-up encounters with wild animals, be sure to join your guide on a rhino-tracking excursion on foot. Great bird watching and plenty of action around waterholes complete the full safari package.

Day 7

Bid farewell to Namibia

Your journey concludes as you board an hour flight to Windhoek International Airport in time for your outbound flight.
