Day by Day

Days 1-4: Little Kulala, Sossusvlei 

Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib Desert. The clear blue skies contrast with the giant red sand dunes to make this one of the natural wonders of Africa and a photographers heaven. Aside from the attractions at Sossusvlei - Dune 45, Hiddenvlei, Big Daddy and Deadvlei - other attractions in the area include the Sesriem Canyon and Namib-Naukluft National Park, where the mountains of the Namib meet its plains. 

Overnight: Little Kulala

Little Kulala is the closest luxury desert retreat to the famous, seen-from-space Sossusvlei dunes. Guests enjoy exclusive private concession access and the camp’s location makes early morning dune visits (to see Sossusvlei at its best) very easy. 

Eleven climate-controlled thatched ‘kulalas’ each have a private plunge pool, rooftop ‘star bed’ and luxury fittings including indoor and outdoor showers. In terms of colour and form, Little Kulala blends seamlessly into the desert landscape. Activities make the most of the solitude and stark beauty of the Namib Desert, with nature drives and guided walks revealing the majesty and mystery of the sand sea. 

Insider tip:

  • Experience the desert from new heights... A hot air balloon ride provides awe-inspiring views of the dramatic scenery below. 

Included:

  • Charter flight from Windhoek Airport to Geluk Airstrip
  • Road transfer in an open 4x4 safari vehicle from Geluk Airstrip to Little Kulala
  • THREE nights accommodation on a Fully Inclusive basis including all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry, Namibian VAT & Tourism Levy, and local drinks (excludes premium imported brands and champagne)

Excluded:

  • Scheduled commercial flight into Windhoek Airport

Days 4-6: Beach Hotel Swakopmund, Swakopmund 

Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a seaside resort, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area and has plenty to keep visitors happy. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, colonial-era buildings and the cool sea breeze make it very popular. 

Overnight: Beach Hotel Swakopmund

Whether you are on a business trip, visiting our charming town, having a conference, a romantic weekend or holiday trip, Beach Hotel Swakopmund is a perfect place to stay and to feel comfortable. 

The ideal location of Beach Hotel Swakopmund, just 50 m from the Atlantic Ocean and within walking distance to the centre of Swakopmund, allows you to experience the flavour of our charming town, while providing you with the opportunity to explore the surrounding areas. 

Beach Hotel Swakopmund offers the largest range of categories at the Namibian coast. From an upper market luxury apartment to an economically family unit. All rooms have a balcony and only four are without sea views. 

Facilities on site include our restaurant, "Anchor Point" which is open all year round as well as a lounge with sundowner bar, a roof terrace with panoramic view sand where you can enjoy sundowners or relax in the swimming pool. After a long day out you can enjoy a professional massage or fitness enthusiasts can head to the gym.

Included:

  • Road transfer in a 4x4 open safari vehicle from Little Kulala to Geluk Airstrip
  • Charter flight from Geluk Airstrip to Swaopmund Airport
  • Road transfer from Swakopmund Airport to the Beach Hotel Swakopmund.
  • TWO nights accommodation on a Bed & Breakfast basis. 

Days 6-8: Desert Rhino Camp, Damaraland 

Huge, untamed and ruggedly beautiful Damaraland is an exceptionally scenic landscape of open plains and spectacular rock formations. The major attractions are Spitzkoppe, Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest. 

Overnight: Desert Rhino Camp View

Desert Rhino Camp offers an original, exclusive wilderness experience and the possibility of seeing some of the largest free-ranging population of desert-adapted black rhino in Africa. The desert plains – transformed overnight by summer rains – are starkly scenic, and home to other unique species, from Hartmann’s zebra, lion and giraffe to the bizarre welwitschia plant. 

The camp consists of eight comfortable Meru-style tents with en-suite bathrooms, and a shady main area with refreshing plunge pool. Run in conjunction with Save the Rhino Trust, Desert Rhino Camp offers rhino tracking by vehicle and on foot with experts from this conservation NGO. 

Insider tip:

  • Explore this extraordinary landscape in search of desert-adapted wildlife and gain an amazing insight into the ecology and conservation of this area. A picnic lunch is the perfect complement to your day’s outing!
  • Just by staying here a portion of your revenue goes to the Save the Rhino Trust and its conservation operations 

Included:

  • Road transfer from the Beach Hotel Swakopmund to Swakopmund Airport
  • Charter flight from Swakopmund Airport to Desert Rhino Airstrip via Doro Nawas Airstrip
  • Road transfer in a 4x4 open safari vehicle from Desert Rhino Airstrip to Desert Rhino Camp
  • TWO nights accommodation on a Fully Inclusive basis including all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry, Namibian VAT & Tourism Levy, and local drinks (excludes premium imported brands and champagne)

Days 8-10: Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, Skeleton Coast 

Known by the Bushmen as the "Land God Made in Anger" the Skeleton Coast is remoteness at its best. Thousands of miles of sandy desert dotted with shipwrecks meet with the cold waters of the Atlantic and somehow an amazing array of wildlife and flora manages to survive in this harsh but beautiful environment. 

Overnight: Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp View

The name “Skeleton Coast” conjures up romantic images of desolate beauty, and proudly remote Hoanib in the Kaokoveld does not disappoint. The dry bed of the Hoanib River supports a thin green ribbon of vegetation and the wild beaches of the Atlantic coast are within reach, with their noisy seal colonies and eerily quiet shipwreck remnants. 

Eight large en-suite tents (including one family unit) and the main area provide shady viewpoints, while nature drives into the surrounding area reveal a wealth of desert-adapted wildlife. Desert-adapted lion and brown hyaena may also be glimpsed in this vast but far from lifeless landscape. >

Insider tip:

  • Take a drive down to the Skeleton Coast and a scenic flight back to camp to see such a diverse area both on the ground and in the air

Included:

  • Road transfer in a 4x4 open safari vehicle from Desert Rhino Camp to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp
  • TWO nights accommodation on a Fully Inclusive basis including all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry, Namibian VAT & Tourism Levy, and local drinks (excludes premium imported brands and champagne) 

Day 10-12: Serra Cafema Camp, Kaokoveld 

The Kaokoveld is a dry, mountainous and relatively undeveloped region that takes in the harsh beauty of the Skeleton Coast and the coppery sands of the northern Namib Desert. The area is inhabited by three main ethnic groups – the Damara, Herero and Himba people – each with their unique customs, traditions and rituals. 

Overnight: Serra Cafema Camp View

Set amongst shady trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, its Portuguese name originating from the mountains that dominate the northern skyline. Guests fall asleep to the sound of rushing water, while by day they explore one of the driest deserts in the world. 

The camp’s eight unique canvas and thatched chalets, each with its own en-suite bathroom, show great attention to detail; the elevated decks and simple structures of wood, canvas and thatch create a camp that is at one with its surroundings. The dining room and pool look out over the Kunene River. 

Activities here are varied, including boating (water levels permitting), walking, viewing breathtaking landscapes, as well as carefully guided quad-bike excursions that tread lightly on the dunes. In this isolated region, the Himba people continue their nomadic, traditional way of life and when in the area, guests have the opportunity to meet them and learn about their lifestyle and traditions. 

Included:

  • Transfer from Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp to Serra Cafema Camp
  • TWO nights accommodation on a Fully Inclusive basis including all meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry, Namibian VAT & Tourism Levy, and local drinks (excludes premium imported brands and champagne) 

Days 12-13: Little Ongava, Ongava Private Game Reserve 

Sharing a common boundary with Etosha National Park, the prolific 30,000 hectare private Ongava Game Reserve is considered one of the finest private game reserves in the region, enjoying global recognition for exceptional conservation, ground breaking research and exciting safari experiences. The reserve is home to – among others – lion, eland, black-faced impala, Hartmann's mountain zebra and a variety of other antelope species. Additional, it is one of the few private reserves in Southern Africa where both black and white rhinos can be observed. The recorded bird life has reached over 340 species. 

Each Ongava property has its own unique style, layout and atmospher,  but all offer the same wonderful sense of luxurious seclusion. Built from local materials in traditional fashion, they blend tastefully into the surrounding landscape, allowing visitors to feel at one with nature. 

Spacious lounge areas, reflecting the colours and textures of the African bush, invite guests to relax, enjoy a drink from the bar, or simply gaze out into the distance and be surprised as Ongava’s spectacular wildlife emerges from the bush.
Every guest suite is individually designed for quality and comfort, and our dedicated guides and catering staff are always available ensuring an unforgettable Ongava stay. 

Overnight: Little Ongava View

Designed for privacy, luxury and an intimacy with the land, Little Ongava is arguably Namibia’s most luxurious accommodation with pristine views across the Ongava plains. 

Little Ongava is perched on the crest of a hill commanding magnificent vistas of the plains stretching for miles to the horizon, offering an extraordinary experience as the focal point of an Etosha journey. 

This intimate camp has only three spacious suites each with its own plunge pool, en-suite bathroom, “sala”, and outdoor shower. The lounge and dining areas have wonderful views of a productive waterhole below the camp, the open deck allowing for relaxed, stylish dining under the African sky. Guests at Little Ongava share a dedicated guide and vehicle, ensuring the best possible nature experience at one of Africa’s great wildlife destinations. Day and night wildlife-viewing drives, visiting hides overlooking waterholes, walks and rhino tracking with experienced guides can all be enjoyed exclusively on this reserve. Game drives and day trips into nearby Etosha National Park are also offered.

Day 14: The Olive Exclusive All-Suite Hotel, Windhoek 

Windhoek is Namibia’s capital, home to a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste (Old Fort), the 1896 Christuskirche (Christ Church), and the more contemporary Supreme Court. 

Overnight: The Olive Exclusive All-Suite Hotel 

The first ultra-luxurious sanctuary of its kind in the Namibian capital, is cool, contemporary and stylish but with a warm heart and authentic African soul. Its sleek, modern lines are complemented by organic textures, natural furnishings, an eco-friendly approach and dedicated personal service. 

The seven suites are individually decorated so each reflects a different region in Namibia, each with its own lounge area with fireplace and dining room for private dining. Wide glass doors open onto spacious decks where you can relax on a shady daybed, enjoy al fresco lunches or, if yours is a premium suite, take a dip in your own private plunge pool. Such are the creature comforts that you may find it hard to leave: sink into an extra-length
bed dressed in crisp, pure-cotton linen, or indulge in a bubble bath in a freestanding tub with sweeping mountain views. Air-conditioning & satellite TV are standard, as is a computer with free WiFi access. Then there’s a fully stocked mini bar, complete with a premium wine selection, so you can toast the setting sun in fine style.
