Discover the wonders of Namibia on this exclusive fly-in safari. Highlights include the visit to incredible Sossusvlei dunes, tracking desert-adapted elephants in Damaraland and viewing the wildlife and waterholes of Etosha National Park.

To Be Confirmed
You will see all of the main Namibian highlights in just 7 days with the luxury of flying between the stunning locations instead of the long distance drives.
On arrival in Windhoek you’ll be met and assisted to your charter flight to Sossusvlei. Here you’ll be staying at Little Kulala, a luxurious desert retreat in a private reserve with direct access to the Namib Naukluft Park. This allows you to get to the dunes early and see their rich red glow in the morning light.
Along with tours to the legendary Sossusvlei dunes and skeleton-like trees of Deadvlei, you’ll also have the option of visiting Sesriem Canyon. Back at Little Kulala go on a guided walk to get a closer look at the desert adapted animals and plants, and in the evening enjoy scenic sundowners before the night sky becomes ablaze with stars.
Enjoy the exclusive activities offered at Little Kulala.
A dawn hot air balloon flight, while not included in the itinerary cost, is well worth the additional expense. Imagine drifting above the desert as the colours bleed into the landscape below, followed by a champagne breakfast in the Namib Desert.
LITTLE KULALA LODGE:
Journey into the ancient Namib to experience this stark and mesmerizing desert landscape from the luxurious style and intimate comfort of the Little Kulala. Located on the outskirts of Namibia’s iconic Sossusvlei Dune area, home to the tallest dunes in the world, this lavish retreat is utterly unique.
Set among ancient camel-thorn trees on the dry Auab riverbed, this opulent refuge offers top-class facilities and warm hospitality. The towering red-orange sand dunes of Sossusvlei lie nearby, beckoning guests to discover their mystery and solitude.
This sumptuous desert retreat is located inside a private wilderness reserve, covering 37 000 hectares (91 500 acres) of arid terrain in the ancient Namib Desert. Accommodation is in 11 thatch-roofed villas, called kulalas, meaning ‘to sleep’. These air-conditioned units are designed to blend in with the muted desert landscape, with each villa offering its own plunge pool and indoor as well as outdoor showers, and a private rooftop bed for intimate stargazing.
A scenic flight over the Namib Desert and spectacular Skeleton Coast takes you north to the flat-topped mountains and fascinating riverbeds of Damaraland. Here you’ll spend two nights at Damaraland Camp, a peaceful oasis with 10 tented chalets.
This ruggedly beautiful landscape is best known for its rare, desert-adapted elephants. Game drives take you in search of these elephant as well as mountain zebra, gemsbok, giraffe, gemsbok and black rhino. You also have the option of guided walking safaris or a daytrip to Twyfelfontein to see the famous rock engravings.
Damaraland is a very special place. The wildlife is certainly a highlight, but a stay here is also about magical moments such as a surprise breakfast on a remote hilltop, boma dinner around a roaring fire or an unforgettable sunset as the surrounding mountains turn shades of purple and orange.
Enjoy the exclusive safari activities at Damaraland Camp.
DAMARALAND CAMP: The welcoming Damaraland Camp offers guests sweeping views of Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, and the striking plains and valleys around it. Set in the Huab River Valley, the remote camp lies in one of the country’s most unspoilt and wild regions, not far from the Skeleton Coast.
Damaraland Camp offers comfortable accommodation in ten elevated chalets on wooden platforms. Each adobe and thatch unit features a spacious deck offering wide-open views over dramatic Damaraland.
Damaraland Camp is a rare synergy that integrates the local community and the environment with sustainable ecotourism, and it has won an array of awards including the 2005 WTTC Tourism for Tomorrow Conservation Award, one of the top two global travel environmental awards.
A light aircraft flight takes you over the stark scenery of Damaraland and the Kaokoveld to the grassy plains of Ongava Game Reserve. Bordering Etosha National Park, Ongava combines night drives and guided walks in this private reserve with guided game drives in neighboring Etosha.
Etosha is Namibia’s premier wildlife destination and during the dry season it’s not uncommon to see springbok, zebra and giraffe all drinking from the same waterhole. The park’s iconic saltpans and grasslands make for easy, clear sightings with other big players including elephant, rhino, cheetah and lion.
Staying at Ongava Lodge you have your own private waterhole which attracts a steady stream of wildlife. You also have the option of guided game drives in Ongava Reserve itself, and for the adventurous tracking white rhino on foot is a highlight not to be missed.
Enjoy the game drives in the reserve.
ONGAVA LODGE: Choose the luxurious Ongava Lodge if you are looking for an exciting safari adventure in Africa. Situated on the southern boundary of the world-famous Etosha National Park, Ongava Lodge offers you personalized service, luxurious accommodation and the opportunity to view the abundance of wildlife in the area.
The main lodge is set near the top of a hill amongst the foothills of the Ondundozonanandana mountain range. You need to stay here just for the view alone. Revel in the impressive vistas from the main lounge, pub and dining areas. Delicious meals are served here with a view over the camp’s waterhole. You will need the pool, also at the main lodge, to cool off in the heat of the day.
The rock and thatch chalets are cool and comfortable and lead onto private verandas overlooking the bush. You won’t want to stay in your room as the wildlife on the Ongava Reserve as well as adjacent Etosha National Park will entice you on a game drive, or two or three. Lion, elephant, cheetah and a variety of buck can be seen at many of the waterholes in the park and if you don’t see them in the day, try the night drives, hides or walks with armed guards around the reserve. A special treat when staying here is the opportunity to see white and black rhino; both of them are on the endangered list.
After breakfast you’re driven to the Ongava airstrip for your flight back to Windhoek. On arrival in Windhoek you’ll be transferred to Hosea Kutako International Airport for your onward travel arrangements.
