Join this 10-day journey through remote areas of Namibia, rarely explored by others. You will see the immense dunes of Sossusvlei, the incredible marine life of Swakopmund, the dramatic landscape of the Skeleton Coast, and the rugged beauty of the Palmwag Concession, home to endangered black rhino. Most of the safari is by road, with two scenic flights included, which will give you an incredible perspective of Namibia's wild and stunning landscapes.
You will stay for 9 nights at several accommodations as listed below:
From Windhoek, you will make your way by vehicle to the luxurious Kulala Desert Lodge, a stunning lodge with views of wide open plains, mountains, and dunes. Here, you will explore the towering dunes of Sossusvlei and Deadvlei and also enjoy spotting game from the patio, and cool down in the plunge pool. All meals are included for these two days.
You will take a scenic flight to the picturesque Swakopmund and spend the next two days exploring the Atlantic coast. You will take a private cruise from Walvis Bay to Sandwich Harbour and see a myriad of marine life, including Cape fur seals, ocean-going bird life, and the rare Heavisides dolphins. Your home for the next two nights is the grand Hansa Hotel, Namibia's oldest and best hotel. 2 breakfasts and 1 dinner will be provided.
On the fifth day, you will continue your journey by vehicle, driving up the dramatic Skeleton Coast for about 380 kilometers. You can expect to see the fascinating lichen plains at Wlotskasbaken, remains of the Zelia shipwreck near Henties Bay and the SW Seal shipwreck near Ugabmund.
You will also take in the ghostly remains of mining operations near Toscanini and have an overnight stay at the rustic but comfortable Terrace Bay Lodge in the Skeleton Coast National Park. Driving time is about five hours, excluding any stops. Today’s meals include breakfast and dinner.
On the next day, you will continue through Skeleton Coast National Park to the Möwe Bay Museum, where you will stop to admire the remains of the Suiderkus shipwreck. Other attractions are the Klein Oase and Auses Springs, hidden in the dunes, the intriguing "roaring" dune, and the breathtaking desert scenery and desert wildlife.
The distance to camp is only 140 kilometers, but due to the gravel roads, driving time is approximately five hours. This remote part of Namibia is inhabited by plant and animal life that has adapted superbly to the harsh desert environment and makes for fascinating game viewing. Set in the starkly beautiful Palmwag Concession on the border of the legendary Skeleton Coast National Park, Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp offers a unique experience of one of the most remote places on earth.
At the camp, eight stylish, well-insulated en-suite tents with shaded outdoor lounges are laid out against a rugged backdrop of hills, and overlook a broad valley at the confluence of two tributaries, providing breathtaking vistas over the highly photogenic landscape. A small plunge pool awaits you after summer activities, while a winter lounge provides a cozy respite from the icy Atlantic fog. All meals will be prepared for you during these two days.
On the eighth day, you will make your way to Desert Rhino Camp, through the rugged, rocky and mountainous Palmwag Concession. You can hope to spot giraffe, oryx, and springbok along the way.
The highlight of a visit to this area is seeing its stable population of the endangered desert-adapted black rhino (the largest concentration in the world outside a national park), which are monitored and protected by the Save the Rhino Trust. It is here that you will have the chance to track black rhino, a thrilling and unforgettable experience. On these days, you will be served all daily meals.
You will bid farewell and be transferred to the Doro Nawas Airstrip for a return flight to Windhoek.
Your exclusive safari will take place in several locations across Namibia, including Kulala Wilderness Reserve, Swakopmund, Skeleton Coast National Park, and Palmwag Concession.
You will be served daily meals, which include breakfast, lunch, and dinner, except at Hansa Hotel and Terrace Bay Lodge where you will only be served daily breakfast and dinner. In addition, a reasonable amount of soft drinks, mineral water, fruit juice, house wine, and beer as well as local spirits while at the lodges will be available.
