Let us customise this sample itinerary to make your dream safari

Overview

Namibia is truly a treasure trove of a country. Bordered by the mercurial Atlantic Ocean that brings in cool air to give life to myriad creatures in the ancient Namib Desert, it is a place of ‘fairy circles’, big game, sky-high sand dunes, unfettered stargazing and unique cities that embody the ‘culture clash’ of Africa and Europe.

Because it is so vast – the size of France and Germany combined with a population of only two million people – one of the best ways to explore is by flying. Taking to the skies, you will appreciate the incredible colour palette of browns, khakis, golds and reds that opens up before you as it turns to lush plains and greenery as you near world-renowned Etosha National Park from the capital, Windhoek. With the various big game and at least 300 bird species, Etosha is a game lover’s paradise. Then fly to the Marianfluss Valley near the Kunene River, land of the Himba people and place of the mysterious ‘fairy circles’, perfectly round spots on the plains where nothing will grow. End your Namibian adventure in the Kaokoveld, a remote section in the north-west where you can track desert-adapted elephants, rhinos, giraffes and lions.

Perfect for those who enjoy getting off the beaten track or who are seeking solitude on their safari, Namibia rewards the patient and those who can quietly appreciate its wide open spaces and immense landscapes.

Itinerary

Day to day

Arrive in Namibia at Windhoek International Airport from where you will be greeted and transferred to Windhoek Eros Airport for a quick flight to Etosha National Park. On arrival at the Mokuti Airstrip, you will be whisked away to Onguma – The Fort, which is your home for two nights. Established in 1907, Etosha is a unique collection of savannah and enormous dry pans that is home to freely-roaming game and over 300 bird and at least 144 mammal species. Maximise your chances of spotting a favourite or long sought-after sighting during half-day drives through this immense park, thrilling night drives where all your senses will be on full alert to pick up a nearby nocturnal animal, and guided walks that will put you in touch with the tiny but astonishing insects, plants, flowers and birds that dwell here. Keep an eye out for Etosha’s peculiar elephants: although among the biggest in Africa, their tusks are proportionally smaller owing to a mineral-deficient diet and a combination of genetic mutations. The area is also known for its endangered black rhino and black-faced impala populations.
