Desert Dunes and Wildlife Luxury Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek - Erindi Lodge Lunch, Dinner

This morning pickup is from your accommodation establishment at 8h00 (8h30 in summer). Driving north we head towards the Erongo region arriving at Erindi mid morning. The reserve is set on 71 000 ha of pristine wilderness with varied landscape in a malaria free area, from mountains to savanna to open grasslands right in the heart of Namibia. The private reserve is teeming with game including predators such as lion, leopard, cheetah as well as some more unusual species not often found in central Namibia such as hippos, crocodiles, and wild dog. Upon arrival at the lodge, we can settle into our rooms, relax at the waterhole or pool until lunch. Late afternoon we will then have the opportunity to explore the area while on a guided game drive. The game drive enables us to interact with your guide and learn as much as possible about this unique game reserve and the animals and plants that you find. On return dinner will be served in the restaurant where we can watch the nocturnal game, such as rhino, aardvark and many plains antelope come to the waterhole to quench their thirst.


Day 2: Amani Lodge Lodge Breakfast, Dinner

This morning we are up early for our morning tea/coffee before heading out for our morning game drive which allows us to see Erindi in a slightly different light. Species to look for this morning include cheetah, wild dog, honey badger and plains antelope. Returning to the lodge for brunch we can then relax by the waterhole or the pool until we depart for our return journey towards Windhoek and on to Amani Lodge where we will join the Big Cat Experience. Amani Lodge works together with the Cheetah Conservation Fund to protect Namibia’s big cats, and here you will get the opportunity to learn more about these fascinating animals as well as to take some amazing photos. Overnight in twin share bungalows with views over the valley. Dinner is in the restaurant.


Day 3: Sossusvlei Bungalows Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning we depart Amani after breakfast around 8h30 and drive via one of the many scenic routes where we will have the option to stop, enjoy a picnic lunch and relax while taking in the surrounding views before descending onto the desert floor. We arrive at the our lodge mid afternoon, you have a chance to relax or to wonder around the lodge or take a refreshing dip in the swimming pool whilst enjoying the views within the park. We then have the option to visit the nearby Sesriem Canyon. While the canyon is considerably smaller than the mighty Fish River Canyon, its’ significance to the surrounding area is huge. As one of the few sources of permanent water in the desert area, its’ mere existence has sustained both animal and human life over hundreds of years. We return to the lodge where you may like to take a walk or relax before witnessing one of the most spectacular sunsets over the desert you will ever see. A sumptuous dinner in the lodge before retiring to our luxurious bungalows for the night.

* Once a month a special full moon departure will be run, enabling you to have an evening guided tour of Sossusvlei to watch the sunset over the dunes and the subsequent full moon rise. A very unique opportunity.


Day 4: Windhoek   Breakfast, Lunch

We depart the lodge early this morning for our guided excursion into the breath taking area of Sossusvlei. With an early morning excursion we are truly able to experience the natural beauty of this area as the first light casts dramatic shadows across the dunes. We then experience this area on foot heading to Deadvlei where we appreciate the large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge dunes with their ever-changing colours. On our way back to the lodge we visit the famous dune 45, we can either climb it or we can wonder around its base. We will enjoy lunch packs en-route back to Windhoek arriving late afternoon where you will be dropped at your accommodation.
