Day 1 Arrive Windhoek

Meet your safari guide after clearing customs and start your exploration with a drive through the Khomas Hochland Mountains. Reach the Sossusvlei region after approximately 5-6 hours, keeping watch for interesting game and scenery along the way. Enjoy lunch en route and arrive to camp in time to freshen up before enjoying dinner under a canvas of stars.

Drive Time: 5-6 hours, 211 miles

*Flight must arrive to Windhoek by 9:00 AM or pre night hotel is required

Day 2 Explore Sossusvlei

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Experience the unique dawn lighting over some of the world’s tallest freestanding sand dunes this morning as you start your adventure in the Kulala Private Reserve. The rich reds of the sand and dramatic shadow lines make for stunning photo opportunities. Explore the area as much or as little as you would like before returning to camp for lunch. This afternoon discover the Sossusvlei region by foot on a guided walking tour, or visit nearby viewpoints keeping watch for gemsbok, zebra, and maybe even a cat or two.

Day 3-4 Swakopmund | Cruise Walvis Bay

  • Hotel
  • 2 Breakfasts, 2 Lunches, 1 Dinner
Today you leave the red dunes of Sossusvlei behind and travel north on the snaking roads of the Kuiseb Canyon and out onto the expansive gravel plains, eventually arriving in Walvis Bay before moving north into the quaint town of Swakopmund. After arriving in late afternoon the day is yours to explore this lively coastal town with its German influence and vibrant African markets before returning to your iconic hotel for the night.

On Day 4, explore the ice-blue Atlantic coast with a catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay to spot wildlife from the boat including dolphins, seals, birdlife and depending on the season perhaps sea turtles and whales. (weather permitting).

The Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) has been involved with rhino conservation since the early eighties, and is responsible for helping these rare animals survive and thrive. Today this area boasts the largest concentration of black rhino anywhere on the planet outside of a national park, a testament to the effectiveness of the program. Visit the Twyfelfontein rock engravings (recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Burnt Mountain, and the Organ Pipes while exploring the area. Other optional activities include cultural visits, game tracking on foot, by bike, or 4x4 vehicle. Return to camp for dinner and star gazing.
