Glimpse of Namibia Safari

Namibia, named after the Namib Desert, is known for its contrasting landscapes and striking diversity of cultures. It is the second most sparsely populated country in the world, and the desolate Namib Desert is said to be the oldest in the world, with its stunningly beautiful dunes and landscapes. Namibia is a photographer’s dream. It has rugged mountains, wild coast, amazing wildlife, stark deserts and fascinating tribes. On this short lodge-based tour, we explore Etosha National Park with its abundance of wildlife and flood lit waterholes perfect for game viewing, and roam the desert plains and dune fields of the Namib Naukluft Park. We visit a Refuge and Rehabilitation Centre, and spend time in the coastal town of Swakopmund.

This afternoon you will have the opportunity to join the afternoon feeding tour of the large predators that are unable to be re-located back into the wild, learn more about these fascinating animals and photographic opportunities are excellent. You can then enjoy a champagne sundowner before returning to the lodge for dinner. Your stay here supports the project and helps with the costs of keeping these majestic animals alive.

This morning we enjoy a quick breakfast before heading out for a full day game driving. We visit many waterholes and drive half way across the park in our quest to find the Big 4 as well as all the plains game arriving at Halali for a rest during the hottest part of the day. Here your guide will prepare you a delicious lunch whilst you have a dip in the pool or relax by the camp waterhole.
Continuing after lunch you will visit the mighty Etosha Pan and have the experience of walking on the pan to feel the immenseness of this 4500 sq km saltpan (seasonal). We will then continue back calling into some well-known waterholes and return to our lodge prior to sunset. Dinner is in the restaurant and an early night is recommended.

A leisurely morning where you can relax, wander into town for some shopping or join any optional activities such as a dolphin cruise or scenic flight before departing for the desert.
Our drive today takes us to the port town of Walvis Bay where we will make a stop at the lagoon for lunch giving us a chance to do some birding. Here, pelicans, avocets, and flamingo are a common sight. We then depart and head across the desert into the Namib Naukluft National Park. On arrival at the Lodge we have ample time to relax, take a swim or enjoy the amazing views that this lodge has to offer. The most unique feature of this lodge is it’s location inside the national park, which enables us unlimited access to the mighty sand dunes of the Namib. Should we wish, we can opt to head into the dunes for sunset or the moon rise, or choose to relax at the lodge and enjoy a sundowner. Dinner tonight is in the restaurant and an early night is recommended.


Day 6:

Sossusvlei

Lodge Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Pre-dawn departure this morning to ensure that we have the opportunity to view this stunning area at its best. We drive down an ancient river bed surrounded by towering dunes to the 2x4 parking (around 55kms) and take a 4x4 drive into the Sossusvlei area to appreciate the beauty of this place in the early morning light and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the region. We explore this unique area on foot before heading into Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge dunes with their ever-changing colours. A picnic breakfast will keep our energy levels up until we return to the lodge for lunch.
As we drive back we will stop at the famous Dune 45 and climb this dune if we wish or just wander around the base. We return to our lodge where we can relax, go back to bed, or take a swim before lunch.
After lunch is some time for ourselves. You may choose to relax around the lodge, or take a walk in the area.
Late afternoon we will visit the nearby Sesriem Canyon. This small, but important canyon, has been one of the few sources of permanent water in the area for hundreds of years and has sustained the local human and animals populations. We can then return to the lodge for a sundowner drink, before a sumptuous dinner in the restaurant
