Natural Wonders of Namibia Itinerary
This is a flying safari exploring the wildlife sanctuary of Etosha, the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei, and the raw and rugged beauty of the Skeleton Coast. Explore the Skeleton coast, a raw and rugged slice of true wilderness, unlike any other on the African continent. Sleep out under the starry Namibia skies on your rooftop star bed, and take advantage of a unique photography hide to capture memorable moments.<!–– start itin loop ––>
Transfer from Windhoek airport to Hotel Heinitzburg.
Transfer to Eros Airport where you will meet your pilot and take to the skies flying to Etosha Heights Private Game Reserve.
Safari game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon. Keep your eyes peeled for lion, giraffe, ostrich and hyena, as well as the elusive black and white rhino. Later this evening, set out on a night game drive and discover the magic of the Namibian bush after dark. Return to camp for dinner under the stars.
This is a place of silence and solitude, and a rare opportunity to be at one with nature and the animals that thrive here. Spend some time in the photography hide and watch the animals going about their day, completely unaware that they are being watched.
Fly off to the desolate Skeleton Coast, where miles of sandy desert, dotted with shipwrecks, meet the chilly Atlantic Ocean. Yet, despite the arid conditions, an amazing array of wildlife and plants survive in this harsh but beautiful environment. After lunch, join your guide for a late afternoon game drive to explore the dunes and dry riverbeds.
Wake to the ocean fog rolling in over the stark landscape, and a chance to explore this raw and rugged slice of African wilderness. Visit the seals at Mowe Colony, walk across the lunar landscapes, and discover the secrets of the desert.
Say goodbye to the otherworldly Skeleton Coast, and fly to the iconic red dunes of Sossusvlei. Enjoy lunch, and then jump in the vehicle for a late afternoon game drive in search of oryx, springbok, bat-eared fox and the brown hyena. Stop for a sundowner just as the desert turns fiery red with the setting sun.
The dunes come alive in the morning light, when clear blue skies contrast with the apricot dunes to make this one of the most scenic natural wonders of Africa. Climb ‘Big Daddy’, one of the tallest dunes; explore Deadvlei, a white, salt, claypan dotted with ancient trees. After a picnic lunch, and a quick hike in the breathtaking Sesriem canyon, return to camp for a siesta. Tonight, fall asleep under the Milky Way on the roof of your “kulala.”
Try quad biking across the wide-open spaces of the beautiful Kulala Wilderness Reserve, or for the ultimate highlight, take an optional hot air balloon flight over the desert
Enjoy a leisurely morning, before your flight to Windhoek.
