Day 1 - 2 Sossusvlei : Little Kulala

Depart from Windhoek by air and spend two nights exploring the Sossusvlei region, staying in Kulala Wilderness Reserve. Little Kulala borders the Namib Naukluft Park in the heart of the Namib Desert. The landscapes of this area are extraordinary: stark plains are bordered by rugged mountains and the towering red dunes of Sossusvlei (some of the highest sand dunes in the world). This terrain in turn gives rise to fascinating forms of desert-adapted fauna and flora.

Activities at Little Kulala start with morning guided game drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei, through a private gate into the Park, allowing early arrival at the dunes to maximise photographic opportunities and scenic grandeur. The Kulala Wilderness Reserve  is home to all forms of desert wildlife, such as ostrich, springbok and gemsbok; with carnivores such as bat-eared fox, Cape fox, cheetah and black-backed jackal.

Day 3 - 4 Damaraland : Damaraland Camp

Enjoy a scenic three-hour flight over the Namib Desert for a different view of the desert and the Skeleton Coast’s spectacular topography, before deviating inland to northern Damaraland for two nights.

The towering Brandberg Mountains of Namibia rise up in contrast to the stark, arid plains of Damaraland on which Damaraland Camp is constructed.  Located in the warm and friendly Haub River Valley, prepare to be enchanted by the beauty and charm of Damaraland Camp.

 This private concession supports a diverse complement of arid-adapted wildlife, including several herds of Namibia’s acclaimed ‘desert-adapted’ elephants, and healthy numbers of Hartmann’s mountain zebra, southern giraffe, gemsbok and springbok in a landscape dotted with equally interesting flora. The conservancy is the result of a highly successful partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the local Torra community that has become an inspiration for communities and conservationists throughout Africa.

Day 5 - 6 Etosha : Ongava Lodge

From Damaraland, a short, one hour flight by light aircraft will transfer you to Ongava Game Reserve for a two-night stay at Ongava Lodge.

Accommodation at Ongava Lodge offers chalets featuring comfortable twin, triple or double rooms. Fine food is served in the thatched dining room or on the dining deck, under the stars. Daily game drives into the Etosha National Park are enthralling and reveal white or black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah and other predators. In addition, guided safari walks are also to be enjoyed as well as secretive hides, strategically placed around the private reserve. In the quiet of the afternoon take a dip in the sparkling swimming pool, relax in the library or browse around the community curio shop.

Day 7 Departure

After breakfast and early morning game activities, you’ll fly back to Windhoek.

Exciting add-ons

We highly recommend adding a 3 night stay in either the pristine and isolated Hoanib Skeleton Coast or the Kunene River. On the Skeleton Coast you can experience the endless isolated coastline, mountains and vast plains plus one of the greatest concentrations of desert-adapted wildlife in Namibia. At Serra Cafema Camp on the Kunene River you can meet the nomadic Himba people and explore the lush banks of the Kunene River which are in total contrast to the surrounding desert.
