Day 1: Windhoek > Namib Desert You will be met by your Explorations guide and fellow guests and begin the journey through the Khomas Hochland mountains and down into the iconic Sossusvlei region. Spend two nights at Kulala Adventurer Camp. You'll explore the iconic red dunes and be awed by the desert-adapted wildlife surviving in one of the world's oldest and most arid deserts.

Day 2: Namib Desert After exploring days, dine under the star-filled Namibian skies and watching a rose-red sunset. The dunes are accessed through the camp's private gate which is conveniently located right at the entrance to the dune corridor.

Day 3: Namib Desert > Swakopmund Depart camp early and drive through the snaking roads of the Kuiseb Canyon and out onto the expansive gravel plains, eventually arriving in Walvis Bay. From here you will continue north onto the quaint town of Swakopmund.

Day 4: Swakopmund Discover the town of Swakopmund. Partake in a Dolphin and Seal catamaran cruise exploring the ice-blue Atlantic coast (weather permitting).

Day 5: Swakopmund > Damaraland We continue our journey by road to Damaraland, west of the Brandberg Mountain. This area boasts the largest concentration of black rhino anywhere on the planet outside a national park. The area boasts a varied assortment of desert-adapted wildlife and incredible geological formations.

Day 6: Damaraland The camp is located in a special place in the heart of the rocky desert of Damaraland, an ancient, starkly beautiful landscape. Damaraland offers endless vistas and one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia. Early morning mists, generated by the clash between the icy Atlantic Ocean and the warm desert air of the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the river valley, providing sustenance to the flora and fauna of the region, hence the high density of wildlife in the area.

Day 7: Damaraland > Etosha National Park Today's drive takes us to Ongava Game Reserve on the boundary of Etosha National Park. Etosha remains the highest density wildlife area within Namibia, its fame justly acknowledged. We will have the opportunity to explore both the Ongava Game Reserve as well as Etosha National Park.

Day 8: Etosha National Park Tucked away in the foothills of a dolomite hill, you will be captivated by the camp's bustling waterhole in front of camp as wildlife file through to quench their thirst. Rustic en-suite Meru-style tents, built on a raised wooden decks stretch out over the wilderness. Bordering the iconic Etosha National Park and set within its own wilderness haven, you can expect unrivaled game viewing complimented by the tranquility of a private reserve.

Day 9: Etosha National Park > Windhoek Return to Windhoek and farewell the guide and fellow travellers.
