The Desert of Namibia

9 days & 8 nights, Private Journey

Sossusvlei, Skeleton Coast & Kunene River Valley

Explore the stark desert landscapes of Namibia on this journey through a remote land. Begin your travels in the home of the tallest sand dunes in the world, the clay pan of Sossusvlei. Search for desert-adapted elephant, lion, giraffe, leopard, and more from your camp near the famed Skeleton Coast. Then, travel deep into the Kunene River Valley to meet the nomadic Himba people and explore some of the wildest land on the continent.

  • Day 1
    Arrive Windhoek - To Sossusvlei

    Upon arrival in Windhoek, connect by light aircraft to the vast Namib Desert. Commence your adventure in Sossusvlei, home to the highest sand dunes in the world. This afternoon, you can enjoy a nature drive or walk for great views of desert-adapted wildlife and plants followed by a sundowner and dinner at the lodge.

  • Day 2
    Sossusvlei

    After breakfast this morning, embark on a visit to the enormous clay pan of Sossusvlei, which is flanked by the famous sand dunes that glow red in the early morning sun. Also see Dead Vlei, another pan where water once flowed; now, all that remains are the skeletons of trees reaching up out of the cracked earth. This afternoon, explore the wilderness reserve by quad-bike.

    Skeleton Coast

    Discover the wealth of desert-adapted life, including elephant and giraffe, alongside antelope, which are stalked by lion, leopard and cheetah. Learn the history of the original Strandlopers ("Beachcombers"), their stone circles lying in hidden valleys; marvel at the ancient welwitschia plant, follow the herds of springbok; and savor landscapes untouched by human habitation for hundreds of miles.

    Skeleton Coast

    Embark on a 4x4 trip to the Skeleton Coast via the wilderness and wildlife of the Hoanib River and floodplain.
