Fly over Namibia to fully experience the unique wildlife and fantastic scenery.
Straddling two immense deserts – the Namib Desert along its south Atlantic coast and the Kalahari Desert in the east – Namibia is a land of unique wildlife and fantastic, otherworldly scenery. A fast maturing safari destination with world class lodges, Namibia’s haunting landscapes harbour a great diversity of wildlife that has adapted to life in this harsh environment, such as the rare desert elephant.
Beginning in the capital of Namibia, Windhoek, you fly south to the Sossusvlei region, site of Namibia’s famous 1000-foot dunes, some of the highest on earth. After exploring the Namib desert’s scenery and ecology, you cool off in the coastal German colonial town of Swakopmund, a little slice of Bavaria transported to the south Atlantic.
Continue by air to Damaraland. Your final stop is Ongava Game Reserve, one of the few private reserves in Africa where the chances are good of seeing both white and black rhino by vehicle and, carefully, on foot. Enjoy private 4-wheel-drive wildlife viewing safaris into the famed Etosha National Park, coming into peaceful contact with its elephant, antelope, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, lion and cheetah, watching their daily activities in this ancient landscape.
