ITINERARY

Day 1: Windhoek
Accommodation at The Olive Exclusive All-Suite Hotel (DBB)

We will meet you at Windhoek International Airport and transfer you to your ultra-luxurious hotel, The Olive Exclusive, which features a cool, contemporary and stylish ambience but with a warm heart and authentic African soul. It boasts a quality restaurant featuring a seasonal menu, with inventive signature dishes.

Situated in Central Namibia, the cosmopolitan city of Windhoek serves as the capital of the country. It is home to a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city's colonial legacy is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings.

Day 2: NamibRand Nature Reserve
Accommodation at Wolwedans Boulders Camp (FI)

We transfer to Eros Airport and fly to Wolwedans headquarters in the NamibRand Nature Reserve, from where we transfer for an hour by road to our camp. This afternoon, we will begin our exploration of the reserve. Flight will be 1hr 25min.

The Namib Rand Reserve is among the largest privately owned game parks in Southern Africa. Its mix of dunes, mountains, rocky outcrops, sandy flats and gravel plains provides habitats for a diversity of mammals - including hyenas, jackals, foxes, antelopes and various wild cats - as well as a plethora of bird species, reptiles, insects, frogs and flora. Visitors can discover the mysterious ‘fairy circles’, which dot the landscape and sip on sundowners while watching the sunset over this unspoilt ancient landscape. Having been named Africa's first International Dark Sky Reserve, it is one of the least light-polluted areas in the world, so don't miss this excellent star gazing opportunity.

From Boulders Camp you can explore the deep south of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. Guided scenic drives, or two to three hour walking safaris treading along the ancient hunting grounds of the bushmen, will happily fill your time.

Day 3: NamibRand Nature Reserve
Accommodation at Wolwedans Boulders Camp (FI)

We spend the day exploring the vast, open spaces of the NamibRand Game Reserve. Options for the day include a full or half day scenic drive, walking safari, 1 hour balloon trip (seasonally available), horseback safari or a village tour.

Activities

Optional: Namib Sky Balloon Safaris
Situated in the heart of the Namib Naukluft Park, Sossusvlei is one of the most fascinating landscapes in Namibia. Gigantic orange dunes, dramatic shadows, undulating plains and rocky mountains create a magical kaleidoscope of colours and shapes. And truly the best way to experience this is in a hot air balloon.
Watching the spectacular sunrise over this magnificent landscape from a silent hot air balloon is the experience of a lifetime, never to be forgotten. At landing, you come back to earth with an “Out Of Africa” style Champagne breakfast set up in the middle of nowhere.

Optional: Wolwedans Scenic Drives
Scenic drives are enjoyed in open 4x4 safari vehicles accompanied by a knowledgeable guide. Various drive options are available and provide the perfect way to explore the Namib Desert.

Little Kulala is the closest luxury desert retreat to the famous, seen-from-space Sossusvlei dunes. Guests enjoy exclusive private concession access, and the camp's location makes early morning dune visits very easy.

Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib with its unique dunes rising to almost 400 metres-some of the highest in the world. The clear blue skies contrast with the giant red dunes to make this one of the most scenic natural wonders of Africa and a photographer's heaven. Sossusvlei is home to a variety desert wildlife including oryx, springbok, ostrich and a variety of reptiles. Visitors can climb ‘Big Daddy’, one of Sossusvlei's tallest dunes; explore Deadvlei, a white, salt, claypan dotted with ancient trees; or for the more extravagant, scenic flights and hot air ballooning are on offer, followed by a once-in-a-lifetime champagne breakfast amidst these majestic dunes.

Activities

Afternoon Nature Drive followed by a sundowner

World-famous Sossusvlei is the name of an enormous clay pan, flanked by the famous sand dunes that flush red in the early morning sun - as well as the name of the area in general. Close to the Sossusvlei pan is Dead Vlei, another pan where water once flowed, but now all that remains are the skeletons of trees reach up out of the cracked earth.

Morning: Visit Sesriem Canyon.
This fascinating geographical formation is well worth a visit. The result of millions of years where water carved its way into the earth, Sesriem Canyon is today three kilometres long. Views from the top are breathtaking while walks through the canyon reveal distinct geographical layers which were laid down over aeons..

Stretching from the Swakop River to southern Angola, the Skeleton Coast is known as the 'Land God Made in Anger'. This coast is desolate but breathtakingly beautiful. Thousands of miles of sandy desert dotted with shipwrecks meet with the cold waters of the Atlantic and somehow an amazing array of wildlife and flora manages to survive in this harsh but beautiful environment. Wildlife includes seabird colonies, Cape fur seals, zebra, gemsbok, desert-adapted elephant, lion and much more.
