6 Day Dunes & Wildlife Safari

From N$20000 per person

Want to explore Etosha & Sossusvlei but travelling alone? This 6 day fully accommodated scheduled safari is the perfect option.

Starting from Windhoek, spend 2 nights in Etosha National Park for game viewing, 1 night in Swakopmund with the chance to enjoy and option sandboarding or quad biking adventure, and last 2 nights in the Namib Desert to explore Sossusvlei.

Etosha National Park is Namibia’s premier game reserve, home to 4 of the Big 5. Sit back and relax as your knowledgeable guide takes you and your new friends from waterhole to waterhole, explaining everything you can see and possibly even some things you can’t.

Enjoy a drive through Damaraland, rich in wildlife and cultural diversity, meet the fascinating Himba, Herero and Damara people before dipping your toes in the Atlantic on the infamous Skeleton Coast.

Then explore the Namib, the world’s oldest desert, where you can climb some of the world’s largest dunes, enjoy endless views and photography opportunities, and learn all about what survives in this harsh desert landscape.

Why join a group tour?
Group tours are ideal for solo travellers or those looking to get the most bang for their buck. Don’t sit around waiting for a travel buddy. Book your flights and your seat and enjoy a holiday on your own. While couples, friends and families are also welcome, these tours are a great chance to meet fellow travellers. Looking to get as much from your $ as possible, opt for a ‘willing to share’ option. This accommodated safari is priced on a twin share basis, so by being ‘willing to share’ means you will not be charged any single supplement for travelling alone. You will then be matched with another traveller of the same gender to share your room. However, if you prefer your own room, then let us know, and a nominal single supplement will be added to guarantee you your own room each night.

While scheduled group safaris might offer the best value for solo travellers, they are fixed in terms of travel dates, itinerary and accommodation. Hence, if this is close to what you are looking for, but not exactly it, then check out our private safari options to get a feel for other options and prices.

The name Etosha means “great white place”, and a visit will undoubtedly make sense of this. Here we can get out of the vehicle and experience this 4500 sq km “saline desert” before continuing our game drive to look for the Big 4. We arrive back at Halali, where our guide will prepare a delicious lunch whilst we have a dip in the pool or relax by the camp waterhole. After lunch, we begin our final game drive across the park towards Okaukuejo, calling into some well-known waterholes and leave the park before sunset. Accommodation tonight is just outside the park in comfortable, spacious twin share rooms with modern en-suite bathroom facilities, creating an ideal space to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Our guide prepares a fantastic dinner and another early night is recommended.Accommodation: Double room with en-suite bathroom at Etosha Village Meals: Breakfast & Lunch & Dinner Included Activities: Full day game driving in Etosha National Park
