Itinerary in detail
Days 1 & 2
Flying from Windhoek, you'll enjoy views of the beautiful landscapes of Namibia on your way to the Namib Desert. You'll spend the next two nights at the luxurious Kulala Lodge in the wilderness reserve with easy access to the towering burnt-red dunes of Sossusvlei.
You can also upgrade to the exclusive Little Kulala if budget and availability permit. Up early to take advantage of the soft morning light, you'll visit the dunes and the fascinating Sesriem Canyon and enjoy scenic sundowners.
Hot air balloon excursions are a terrific way to experience the light, silence and enormity of this ancient desert (extra cost, weather permitting).
Days 3 & 4
Departing Sossusvlei, you'll head northwards with a scenic flight over the Namib Desert to get a view of the incredible 'dune sea' as well as catching a glimpse of one of the famous shipwrecks or old mining camps. Landing for refuelling at Swakopmund, you'll head inland to the flat-topped mountains and arresting landscapes of Damaraland where you'll spend the next two nights at Damaraland Camp.
This arid area is famous for its diverse wildlife as well as the desert-adapted elephant and black rhino. It's also an outstanding example of a successful partnership with the local Torra community.
Days 5 & 6
Fly onwards to Ongava Game Reserve by light aircraft, getting a look at the stark contrast between the barren, rocky landscapes of Damaraland and Kaokoveld and the greener, grassy plains of Ongava and Etosha National Park. Your home for the next two nights will be either Ongava Tented Camp or Ongava Lodge. The tented camp overlooks a busy waterhole that attracts myriad wildlife.
The lodge is built around a rocky outcrop with views of vast plains. At night, its waterhole is floodlit and you can watch for hours as the many night visitors come to quench their thirst.
After a short but unforgettable overview of Namibia and its rich landscapes, you'll transfer by light aircraft to Windhoek's Hosea Kutako International Airport for your onward travel arrangements.
