Wings over Namibia
• Sossusvlei • Namib Desert • Sesriem Canyon • Damaraland • Etosha National Park
Namibia is a vast, sparsely populated country with rewarding pockets of endemism in its enormous wilderness. By day enjoy the majestic rusty dunes of Sossusvlei and at night be enchanted by the desert sky. The vastness of Damaraland will astound you as will the desert-adapted wildlife. The last stop is Etosha National Park - famed for its large herds of game and great predator viewing to go with it. The camps are set within private concessions and you will be transferred by air seamlessly between destinations.
Days 1 & 2: Namib Desert Depart from Windhoek by air and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the mountains and the desert floor. Fly to Sossusvlei for two nights at Kulala Desert Lodge. Afternoon desert activity and sundowners in the "perfect light". Options include an excursion to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon and an optional hot air balloon ride (not included).
Days 3 & 4: Damaraland Fly to Damaraland - we enjoy a scenic flight over the Namib Desert for a different perspective of the "dune sea" - including the possibility of seeing shipwreck remains, plus an old mining camp along the Skeleton Coast before heading inland to northern Damaraland. Spend two nights at Damaraland Camp. Damaraland Camp is famous for its diverse compliment of desert-adapted wildlife, especially elephant, and its highly successful partnership with the local Torra community.
Days 5 & 6: Etosha National Park The fight reveals the considerable contrast of the stark and rocky scenery of Damaraland and the Kaokoveld and the richer woodland areas and grassy plains of wildlife-rich Ungava and Etosha. Stay at Ongava Tented Camp, on a 30,000 private reserve where big game including lion, white and black rhino and plains game abound. The camp overlooks a waterhole where multitudes of wildlife come to drink.
Intimate Ongava Tented Camp is hidden in the west of the Reserve and overlooks a waterhole to which a plethora of wildlife congregate to drink. Ongava Lodge is scenically nestled around a rocky outcrop and overlooks the vast plains beyond plus a productive waterhole that is floodlit at night.
