This 9-day guided road trip takes you across the vast and other-worldly Namibian landscape, from the dunes of the planet’s oldest desert to the remote Damaraland and one of Africa's greatest wildlife reserves.
Start your expedition among Sossusvlei’s soaring red dunes, some of the highest in the world. Stay at an authentic adventure camp while exploring the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve on scenic drives. Discover the area’s rare wildlife like desert-adapted elephant who have smaller bodies, longer legs and bigger feet than their non-desert cousins to cope with the water-scarce environment.
Then head to Namibia’s mesmerising Atlantic coast for a few days in Swakopmund, a quaint town with a picturesque mix of African and German culture and architecture. Enjoy a catamaran cruise to spot dolphins, pelagic birds, Cape fur seals, leatherback turtles and even southern right and humpback whales during season.
Your next stop is the remote and spell-binding Damaraland. This largely uninhabited area lies between the mysterious Skeleton Coast and the even more remote Kaokoveld. Go on game drives to discover more desert-adapted wildlife like black rhino, and enjoy nature walks to explore 10 000-year-old rock engravings at a World Heritage Site.
Cap your memorable Namibia safari in the Ongava Game Reserve, a 74 000-acre private reserve that shares an unfenced border with the sensational Etosha National Park. Considered by many safari aficionados as the premier wildlife destination in Southern Africa, Namibia’s ‘Great White Place’ is a haven for exceptional numbers of mammal and bird species. Experience the pinnacle of game viewing in Etosha and encounter four of Africa’s Big 5 (the arid environment does not support buffalo).
