Day 1-2: Windhoek to Kulala Wilderness Reserve : Little Kulala Camp : FI
Depart from Windhoek by air and enjoy awe-inspiring views of the mountains and the desert floor. Spend two nights exploring the Sossusvlei region, staying in the Kulala Wilderness Reserve, which provides convenient access to the splendour of the towering red dunes of the Namib. Activities at Little Kulala start with morning guided game drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei and include a visit to the fascinating Sesriem Canyon, scenic sundowners and hot air balloon excursions (at extra cost; weather dependent).
Day 3-5: Damaraland : Damaraland Camp : FI
After breakfast and final farewells, we leave the sandy dunes behind and make our way to the next destination. A scenic flight over the Namib Desert for a different perspective of the “dune sea” – including the possibility of seeing shipwreck remains plus an old mining camp. After flying along a section of coastline to Swakopmund where we land for refuelling, we head inland to the flat-topped mountains and fascinating riverbeds of northern Damaraland for two nights at Damaraland Camp. Damaraland Camp is famous for its diverse compliment of desert-adapted wildlife, especially elephant, and its highly successful partnership with the local Torra community.
Day 6-7: Ongava Game Reserve : Ongava Tented Camp : FI
Continue to Ongava Game Reserve on your scheduled air transfer by light aircraft. The flight reveals the considerable contrast of the stark and rocky scenery of Damaraland and the Kaokoveld and the richer woodland areas and grassy plains of wildlife-rich Ongava and Etosha. Stay for two nights at either Ongava Tented Camp or Ongava Lodge. Intimate Ongava Tented Camp is hidden in the west of the Reserve and overlooks a waterhole to which a plethora of wildlife congregate to drink. Ongava Lodge is scenically nestled around a rocky outcrop and overlooks the vast plains beyond plus a productive waterhole that is floodlit at night.
Day 8: Departure
After a hearty breakfast and final farewells, transfer by light aircraft to Hosea Kutako International Airport, Windhoek for your onward travel arrangements.
