Starting from Windhoek International Airport we first head south into the worlds oldest desert before making our way north into the wildlife dense area of the Etosha National Park and the private Ongava Reserve.

The first 3 nights are spent in the Namib Desert at the incredible Little Kulala. Located on a private reserve offering incredible landscapes and the ultimate in luxury in the heart of the worlds oldest desert.

From here, we fly via the Skeleton Coast and Damaraland and on to the famed Ongava Private Game Reserve, home to Namibia’s largest rhino population. Here, predators roam freely, and the evenings can be spent in the restaurant overlooking the camp waterhole or for the keen photographer closer to the action in the hide, waiting for wildlife to come in for a drink. Ongava Game Reserve also borders the world-famous Etosha National Park, and game drives will be conducted on both Ongava and Etosha in search of wildlife.


Day-by-Day Itinerary

+ Day 1 - Windhoek - Namib Desert

On arrival today at Windhoek International Airport, we board our flight south into the Namib Desert. As we depart Windhoek, we can enjoy the incredible scenery of the Khomas, Auas & Eros Mountains surrounding Windhoek before crossing the Naukluft Mountains and watching as the landscape transforms from mountain ranges to the desert. This afternoon we can enjoy an afternoon guided activity, our first chance to explore the spectacular private Reserve in the Namib Desert.

Activities: Afternoon activity
Accommodation: Little Kulala
Meals: Dinner
+ Day 2 - Namib Desert

Today we spend the day exploring the Namib Desert, the world’s oldest desert and part of Africa’s largest conservation area. Departing before sunrise, we travel through the Namib Naukluft National Park and down to the heart of the dunes. As we travel along the Tsauchab River, we can stop and enjoy countless photographic opportunities as the sun rises and the dunes change colour. The low lying sun provides breathtaking light on the dunes, and the addition of an oryx, springbok, or ostrich brings the desert to life. Spend the morning exploring the dunes, wandering through Deadvlei and Sossusvlei and for the energetic, climbing Big Daddy, the highest dune in the area. Returning to camp mid-afternoon for some much-deserved lunch and some respite from the midday sun, we can have a siesta before enjoying an afternoon nature drive or guided walk.

Activities: Morning & afternoon activities
Accommodation: Little Kulala
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
+ Day 3 - Namib Desert

Another early morning this morning as we head out on a sunrise hot air balloon flight over the worlds oldest desert. Enjoy the chance to witness the colours of the desert change as the sun rises, this time from the sky as we float over the dunes, plains and rocky outcrops that make this desert so unique. We enjoy a champagne breakfast upon landing and then have the chance to relax during the heat of the day before heading out on a late afternoon activity.

The Ongava Reserve is one of Namibia’s premier private game reserves and a haven for everything from white rhino & lion to herds of elephant and more. On arrival today, we can check into our luxury accommodation overlooking the savannah before heading out for an afternoon game drive in search of everything from the largest of mammals to our feathered friends, including eagles, owls, and even eagle owls.

+ Day 5 - Ongava Reserve & Etosha National Park

The Ongava Reserve shares a border with Etosha National Park, so this morning we enjoy a game drive through Namibia’s premier national park and have the chance to experience some of Africa’s best game viewing. Etosha stretches some 22,000 sq kms and whilst this is a huge area, Etosha is renowned for its large concentrations of multiple species drinking around the same waterhole. This diversity is a reflection of the harsh environment and lack of groundwater that brings all creatures, predators and prey, into the artificial water holes to quench their thirst. Returning to Ongava early afternoon, we can enjoy some downtime during the heat of the day before enjoying an afternoon nature drive or guided walk to explore Ongava some more.

Activities: Morning game drive in Etosha National Park & afternoon nature drive on Ongava
