Full Day by Day Itinerary
Upon arrival into Windhoek, after completing immigration formalities, collect your baggage and proceed to the Arrivals Hall. Here you will be met by an Alluring Africa representative for your private road transfer to The Olive Exclusive Hotel, where you will stay for one night.
At a time to be advised: You will be collected from your lodge by an Alluring Africa representative for your private road transfer to the airport for your scheduled charter flight to Little Kulala Camp, where you will stay for three nights. Time permitting, enjoy an afternoon activity.
Day 3 – 4
Enjoy two full days of game viewing activities at Little Kulala Camp.
Activities at Little Kulala include exploring the spectacular towering dunes of Sossusvlei as well as other fascinating geographical formations of the region. Guided drives and walks are also offered on the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve.
Visit the 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.
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.
Nature drives in the 37,000 hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve offers visitors exclusive wildlife-viewing opportunities which include the likes of oryx, bat-eared fox, brown hyaena and birdlife. Drinks stops in scenic parts of the reserve are a highlight.
Walking trails focus on becoming immersed in this remote area, as well as its scenic beauty and the fascinating, and surprisingly, diverse array of insects, reptiles and rodents which make this dry and harsh region their home. The Tsauchab River Trail takes a stroll along a fascinating dry riverbed.
Set out in the late afternoon for a nature drive and complete your excursion in a remote and dramatic spot on the reserve sipping a gin and tonic while watching the sun goes down.
The Namib is known for its clear night skies, and with no light pollution it is the ideal spot from which to learn about the incredible formations of the stars and planets. Our guides are also known to dabble in astronomy and will guide you through the constellations while our telescope will allow you to look closer.
After a morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip by a camp vehicle for your scheduled charter flight to Doro Nawas Airstrip. Here you will connect with your scheduled charter flight to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, where you will stay for three nights. Time permitting, enjoy lunch and an afternoon activity.
Day 6 – 7
Enjoy two full days of game viewing activities at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.
Game drives: Nature drives showcase the magnitude of the landscape and offer the best possibilities of seeing desert-adapted wildlife. Morning or afternoon drives are available as well as full-day excursions.
Nature walks: Nature walks from camp take in the magnificent surrounds as well as glimpse the vestiges of who dwelt here hundreds of years ago: the Strandlopers (Beachcombers). It is also a good opportunity to study the smaller creatures and the fascinating plant life of the concession.
Skeleton Coast excursion: On a stay of three nights (or more) full-day excursions to the Skeleton Coast are offered. The fascinating 4×4 trip to the coast takes you via the wilderness and wildlife of the Hoanib River and floodplain, the dune fields and Klein Oasis, while the Skeleton Coast itself reveals a rocky coastline with its huge Cape fur seal colony and a few shipwreck remains. Weather dependent, a scenic flight back to camp offers a magnificent perspective of your journey from the air.
Day trips to Desert Oases: Day trips to Klein Oase and Auses Spring can be organised. These oases are a fascinating respite from the dry surrounds of the desert and offer the chance of seeing wildlife coming to drink as well as plenty of birdlife. These full-day trips are done in our semi-closed game drive vehicles, with a stop for a picnic at a scenic spot along the way.
After the morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred to the airstrip by a camp vehicle for your scheduled charter flight to Doro Nawas Airstrip. Here you will connect with your scheduled charter flight to Serra Cafema Camp, where you will stay for three nights. Time permitting, enjoy lunch and an afternoon activity.
Day 9 – 10
Enjoy two full days of game viewing activities at Serra Cafema Camp.
Engage in game viewing and activities that revolve around the exploration of the surrounding Namib Desert sands contrasting with the lush oases along the river, as well as authentic cultural Himba experiences. Informative nature drives in open Land Rovers allow guests to experience the true Namib in its unbridled glory, while walking provides unique opportunities to see the smaller denizens of the desert, from the famous fairy circles to the desert chameleon.
One of our highlights, guided quad bike excursions through the fragile environs, is done with utmost care along specifically allocated pathways, so as to tread lightly on the dunes and preserve the unique and delicate habitats of this landscape. In this isolated area, the Himba people continue their traditional semi-nomadic way of life and, when they are in the area, guests have an opportunity to learn about their lifestyle and customs.
After a morning activity (time permitting) and breakfast, you will be transferred by a camp vehicle to the airstrip for your scheduled charter flight to Doro Nawas Airstrip. Here you will connect with your scheduled charter flight to Windhoek to connect with your homebound flight.
Return home, taking with you the sights, sounds, and memories of an incredible African adventure!
