Flying in from Windhoek, the land becomes drier as you enter the Namib Desert. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is vast private reserve deep in the Namib, the world’s oldest living desert. A private gate allows secret access to Sossusvlei in the National Park, essential for the most majestic scenery at Sossusvlei’s towering dunes where white, cracked pans and shadows meld with soft pink, peach and red coloured dunes.
Its beautifully appointed stone and glass suites, spread out along the curve of the escarpment, open onto the massive desert. Quad bikes, nature walks and a hot air balloon ride complete are some of the activities on offer.
Located in the rugged Kaokoveld, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp lies along the dry Hoanib River and offers cool comfort under stretched canvas and shielded by ancient volcanic mountains. Intimate and exclusive, this iconic luxury tented camp combines enigmatic desert wildlife experiences around camp with the Skeleton Coast, the most barren coastline in the world.
Guided explorations discover water filled oases surrounded by dunes, where elephants, rhino and even rare desert lions roam. The Skeleton Coast yields seal colonies, shipwrecks, whale skeletons and even the secretive brown hyena.
On the boundary of Angola and Namibia and amongst shady giant Ana trees on the Kunene River, sits Serra Cafema. Feel part of the breathtaking surroundings as elegant use of natural building materials and soft red hues of the Himba make you feel as one with nature.
Meet and speak with the beautiful Himba people, a matriarchal nomadic stone aged tribe of pastoralists. Other activities include boating, walking and guided quad-bike excursions which reveal a surprising diversity of life and include huge crocodiles, zebra, the Namaqua chameleon and the desert’s great survivor, the regal oryx.
Etosha National Park and the surrounding private reserves host Namibia's largest wildlife populations and is a must do for safari enthusiasts. The park surrounds the white expanse of Etosha Pan, the ancient floor of a glacial lake. Springs around the pan's edges attract a staggering density of wildlife, a place where desert and savanna animals meet. Sightings may include lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, endemic Damara dik-dik and black and white rhino.
Choices of accomodation are varied between the park and private reserves in terms of luxury, excursions and wildlife. Let our experts help to find your perfect experience.
