DAY 1 & 2: SOSSUSVLEI (2 NIGHTS)
From Windhoek International Airport or Eros Domestic you will fly over the Khomas Hochland and the Naukluft Mountains down the 1000m escarpment to Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert.
On the way: A sneak preview of Sossusvlei – the main attraction – as seen from the air will reveal an endless sea of copper-and-ochre sand dunes stretching to the Skeleton Coast and the Atlantic Sea.
When you’re there: Your must-do activity is an excursion into Sossusvlei. Wander about Dead Pan, with its eerie dream-like collection of petrified acacia trees and red dunes rising sheer from the salt-white pan. Climb a dune and capture the full force of a sea of red sand dunes as far as you can see… at sunrise.
Back on your private nature reserve you can take scenic game drives into the desert looking for creatures great, small and odd. Sunsets are saluted in traditional African fashion and the evening under the desert sky will lull you into a deep and peaceful sleep.
*Scheduled activities included (details on request)
DAY 3 & 4: DAMARALAND (2 NIGHTS)
When you’ve had your fill of cloudless blue skies, vast open spaces, ever-changing hues and pristine wilderness it’s time for your next Namibian treat – Damaraland.
On the way: As you fly over one of the world’s largest nature reserves the land changes from dunes and mountains to vast plains that collide with a dune belt along the Skeleton Coast past Conception Bay, Sandwich Harbour and Walvis Bay. It’s a pretty scenic flight. You will land in Swakopmund to re-fuel your plane for the flight to Twyfelfontein in Damaraland.
When you’re there: Twyfelfontein is the scene of Africa’s most concentrated collection of San rock art and the scenery is tranquil, picturesque and unique.
Birding, geology, nature walks and scenic drives compliment the unique Namibian experience that is Damaraland. Go in search of the desert-adapted elephants and other wildlife.
*Your stay includes:
1 x Nature drive to search for the desert-adapted elephants and other wildlife
1 x Guided Twfyelfontein Excursion
DAY 5 & 6: ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK (2 NIGHTS)
Your mid-morning flight takes you over Damaraland to the southern border of Etosha National Park.
On the way: As you fly over Damaraland the land rises and levels out to form game-rich savannah plains that support the spectrum of southern African wildlife and several endemics to boot.
When you’re there: No visit to Namibia would be complete without a safari in Etosha National Park.
Your two days in Etosha offer the traditional classic African wildlife safari with all of the big game and plains species present in great numbers. Top this with a unique national park that has a massive pan in the middle surrounded by natural waterholes and you have an exceptional game viewing experience.
*All scheduled game drives included with the lodge
DAY 7: WINDHOEK (DEPARTURE / END OF TOUR)
Bid farewell to the wildlife, the peace and tranquility and the unspoiled scenery as you fly back to Windhoek in time to catch your outbound flight at the end of your amazing Namibia highlights fly-in safari tour.
