Olive Grove Guesthouse

Olive Grove is a small upmarket accommodation establishment situated close to Windhoek city center in a quiet and peaceful area. Recently completely refurbished, each room has been decorated and painted with new color schemes allowing a different feel, but with the same elegant and simplistic emphasis on décor.

The on-site wellness rooms offer a selection of professional services to assist guests on their journey towards inner and outer well-being. Whilst each of the ten rooms and one suite cater for every need of the most discerning traveler, the emphasis remains one of simplicity and elegance.

Little Kulala Desert Lodge

Little Kulala is a luxurious desert retreat situated in the private 37,000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve, the gateway to Namibia's sand sea with its towering dunes and clear starry skies. Desert-adapted wildlife in the area is fascinating and is another dimension of this truly spectacular place.

Accommodation consists of 11 climate-controlled and thatched "kulalas" (a word which means to sleep) which merge impeccably into the desert landscape, each with private plunge pool, both indoor and outdoor showers, and a rooftop star bed for a romantic star gazing. An elegant entertainment area includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge, and dining areas.

Little Kulala’s interiors make use of neutral colors, gorgeous textures, and natural light and are inspired from the surroundings, notably from the magnificent Dead Vlei.

Damaraland Camp

Damaraland Camp is situated in the Torra Conservancy, an inspirational community partnership, with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys, and distant peaks of the Brandberg Mountains. New technology blends with ancient construction methods to create innovative and eco-friendly luxury in the desert, with the camp’s ten elevated adobe-styled, thatched units (including a family unit).

A spacious, thatched living area is complete with a fireplace, bar, and swimming pool. An open campfire and outdoor boma can be enjoyed during calm evenings. Large game is not concentrated year-round here, with the natural cycle of rainfall dictating the seasonal movement of wildlife along the Huab River, which can be explored from camp. You will be staying here for the second to the four night of the tour.

Ongava Tented Camp

Ongava Tented Camp is one of Namibia’s best kept secrets. Located in the private Ongava Game Reserve to the south of the world-famous Etosha National Park, it overlooks a waterhole at which a plethora of wildlife congregates to drink.

Relaxation typically takes place around the main area which is made of stone, canvas, and thatch with bar and swimming pool. You can watch the diverse wildlife happenings in front of the camp. Eight large comfortable Meru-style tents, all with en-suite facilities, open air showers, and private verandas accommodate up to 16 guests. The family unit sleeps four.

Etosha National Park

​Etosha Salt Pan is at the heart of this national park. It is a parched landscape that bewilders the mind how the wildlife survives, but they do and in large numbers. This is a fantastic place to see the desert adapted species that inhabit this park and enjoy a massive area reserved solely for the purposes of viewing the amazing wildlife. The accessibility of this national park means that you do not need a 4×4 vehicle to visit and so it is an ideal destination for self-driving.

​Damaraland

The highlight of Damaraland is to follow the tracks of the elephants that have adapted to the extreme dry conditions of this area. Along with the elephants, the possibilities of seeing a black rhino, giraffe, ostrich, and springbok and many other species give this fantastic landscape everything it needs to leave you wanting more.

​Sossussvlei - Namib-Naukluft National Park

Sossusvlei is a place that you can only imagine exists but when you arrive, the truth is a bit of a shock. This stunning landscape of the desert dunes and small areas of scrubby vegetation gives the sense that you are in one of the driest places on earth, and of course you are. The color and the size of the dunes will astonish you and leave you in awe of a place that is usually seen in books.

The Namib-Naukluft National Park is one of Namibia's best kept secrets and one of the best ways to see this unusual place is with the help of a local guide. They take you to see the areas off the beaten track and come across places that are not often seen by visitors.

The Skeleton Coast, Kaokoveld

The treacherous seas of the Atlantic Ocean have left many shipwrecks staring up at the magnificent dunes of the desert area known as the Skeleton Coast. Stunningly beautiful coastline and outposts of wildlife will leave you with a sense of true wilderness and remote beauty.

The extremely remote north-west of Namibia, formerly known as the Kaokoveld, is a study of life in extremes. The desolate coastline gives way to endless ancient valleys, rugged terrain, and unbroken dune fields. The perennial Kunene River to the north is an oasis in this harsh landscape.

The Caprivi Strip

This area of land runs from the north east of Namibia, across the top of Botswana, and meets Zambia and Zimbabwe at the Zambezi River. This piece of land has some fantastic wildlife and the Linyanti marsh sits within this area that is a mini version of Botswana's Okavango Delta.
