Spectacular Namibia

Namibia is a vast, sparsely populated country with rewarding pockets of endemism in its enormous wilderness. This 6-night package starts at Kulala Desert Lodge, an excellent vantage point from which to view the majestic rust-red dunes of Sossusvlei – and the star-studded desert sky at night.You will then head up to Doro Nawas where starkly beautiful vistas and desert-adapted wildlife await; you’ll also visit ancient rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, a World Heritage Site. From Doro Nawas you will head to Andersson’s Camp to explore the iconic Etosha National Park. The park is famed for its large herds of game and excellent predator viewing that go with it. This package takes in three completely contrasting ecosystems within one spectacular country.

Days 1 / 2 ~ Sossusvlei ~ Kulala Desert Lodge

Upon arrival in Windhoek you will be transferred via light aircraft to Kulala Desert Lodge for two nights. Located in the Namib Desert on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Kulala Desert Lodge provides convenient private access to the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei and consists of 15 thatched and canvas “kulalas” with en-suite bathrooms and verandas, and a rooftop deck for those who want to sleep under the stars.Activities include early morning guided nature drives to the world-famous dunes of Sossusvlei, nature drives and walks on the private reserve, or an excursion to Sesriem Canyon. Other options, at extra cost, are horse riding and an early morning hot air ballooning trip.


Days 3 / 4 ~ Damaraland ~ Doro Newas

You will be transferred by light aircraft to Doro Nawas Camp for two nights. Described in the official tourism board of Namibia as “Liberating, Soulful and Rugged” there is simply no finer way of witnessing these attributes of Namibia than from the air. You’ll pass over some of Africa’s finest landscape scenery: the fog-shrouded Skeleton Coast to the west, ephemeral rivers, fairy circles and shifting sands. Weather depending, you may see the striking Spitskoppe (1800m) and the looming hulk of the Brandberg, at 2579 metres Namibia’s highest mountain and alleged to be second largest massif after Australia’s uluru (Ayers Rock).

Activities include guided game, nature drives and walks enabling one to explore the Huab and Aba Huab river systems, or view Africa’s largest collection of petroglyphs – prehistoric rock engravings and Bushman rock art – at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. Other geological wonders to be seen are the Petrified Forest, Burnt mountain and Organ Pipes.


Days 5 / 6 ~ Etosha ~ Anderson Camp

You will be transferred by light aircraft to Andersson’s Camp for two nights. Andersson’s Camp (named for Charles Andersson, Swedish explorer of Etosha) is located on the private 30 000-hectare Ongava Game Reserve, south of Etosha National Park’s Andersson Gate. The camp is set against the backdrop of the low Ondundozonanandana mountains. 20 tented guest units of stone, canvas and wood are elevated and radiate outwards from the renovated old farmhouse that forms the main area, all overlooking a waterhole. Between Etosha and Ongava, there is plenty of wildlife to see, such as springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, Hartmann’s mountain zebra, elephant, red hartebeest, giraffe, eland, and Burchell’s zebra. Predators include lion, leopard, and cheetah; unusual species include Damara dik-dik and the endemic black-faced impala. Ongava is a custodian of both black and white rhino and bird life is prolific, with over 340 species to be seen – amongst them 10 of Namibia’s 14 endemic bird species. Activities include self-drive or guided game drives into Etosha, with guided walks and night drives on Ongava Reserve also an option.



Our Opinion:

This is the perfect itinerary for those with little time who want to see all the most beautiful parts of Namibia without breaking the bank. Wilderness does a fantastic job and the camps are far from other people. It is a fantastic way to see the country. Great value for money,
