Namibia Safari

The land of unrelenting sun, where the ground seems to beg the heavens for rain, and the landscapes stretch uninterrupted for hundreds of kilometers on end. Deserts where one gazes in wonder and amazement at the animals and plants that survive in this harsh environment

Namibia Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek Camping Dinner

Setting off from the capital, Windhoek at 09h00, we travel south to Rehoboth, and then into the true Namib to the desert camp adjoining the Namibrand Nature Reserve. Here we camp alone in the wilderness with only the desert landscapes, rocky mountains and towering dunes to keep us company. The sunset over the desert is a sight to behold. We enjoy a traditional meal under the clear night skies before falling asleep to the sounds of the wild.


Day 2: Namib Desert Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Awake to desert vistas that extend further than the eye can see. The camp is nestled against a towering rock outcrop within a protected wilderness, and restored and onto which game has been protected with the proceeds of tourism. During our stay here, we will conduct extensive guided walks and game drives both during the day and at night in order to better understand the desert fauna and flora.


Day 3: Sossusvlei Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a short morning walk we pack up and continue through the endless plains to the Sesriem Canyon and the awesome Soussusvlei dunes. We will transfer into the dunes by 4x4 and will spend time climbing these spectacular mountains of sand before moving on to camp wild in the desert.


Day 4: Swakopmund Cabin Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Crossing through the Namib Naukluft Park, we visit the dramatic Lunar Landscape, and the ancient Welwitschia plants, before making for the coastal town of Swakopmund where we spend two nights in the centrally located, comfortable INN. We explore this holiday town and its surrounds thoroughly, and enjoy one evening meal at a local nightspot (own expense). Clients will have the opportunity to partake in Quad Biking, Sand Boarding and Sky Diving whilst here (own expense).

Day 6: Skeleton Coast - Spitzkop Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today we head up the barren Skeleton Coast, scene of many a shipwreck, to the Seal Colony at Cape Cross where thousands of Cape Fur Seals can be seen ashore. Venturing inland, our next stop is at the impressive Spitskop where we will camp wild amongst the boulders at the base of this unusual granitic outcrop. We hope to see the endemic colorful Lovebirds during our stay here


Day 7: Twyfelfontein Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A long day, we move on to visit the Organ Pipes and the bushman Rock Engravings at Twyfelfontein before entering Damaraland and crossing the Grootberg to camp the night near the oasis of Palmwag. This is one of a few sanctuaries used by the rare Desert Elephants, and we hope to see these magnificent animals up close today.


Day 8: Epupa Falls Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Traveling through the heart of the Kaokovelt today, we make our way north to the Angolan border where we will camp at a community project on the banks of Cunene river at the awesome Epupa Falls. During our time here we hope to interact with the nomadic Himba people, a tribe that live in this inhospitable region and wander with their livestock in search of grazing. We will also explore the area surrounding the Falls.

One night we will dine at a camp restaurant (own expense).
