Day 1 Arrive Windhoek
Having arrived at Windhoek, you will be met and transferred to Omaanda, in the Zannier Reserve by N/a'an ku sê. The 10 stunning thatched rooms have been designed to recall the homes of the Owambo people and you’ll have time to relax and enjoy your surroundings this afternoon. Perhaps take a swim in the lodge’s infinity pool, which overlooks your gorgeous surroundings or book a massage in the spa. Depending on your time of arrival, enjoy a late afternoon game drive in search of the elephant, leopard, cheetah, rhino and giraffe that inhabit the reserve before returning for drinks and dinner.
Overnight: Zannier Omaanda

Day 4 - 5 Serra Cafema – Kunene River
Today your private light aircraft will take you all the way up to the Angolan border in the very north of Namibia. Undoubtedly one of the most remote camps in southern Africa, Serra Cafema is located in the extreme north-west of Namibia on the banks of the Kunene River in Hartmann's Valley. This intimate, peaceful camp was inspired by the area’s Himba people, with a unique mix of rustic and luxury elements, nestled amongst shady albida trees. Accommodation consists of eight wood, canvas and thatch villas set on spacious, elevated decks blended smoothly into the picturesque surroundings. Each tent has an en-suite bathroom, ceiling fan and mosquito nets. The Ozonganda, or main area, offers indoor and outdoor dining, a sunken lounge, library, curio shop and swimming pool, all with their own spectacular views.
Overnight: Serra Cafema – Kunene River
Day 6 - 8 Kaokoland
Fly by light aircraft to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. In a remote area of the Kaokoveld, with gravel-strewn plains and dry riverbeds that draw fascinating wildlife, lies Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. Game drives explore this isolated area, moving along the riverbed’s narrow ribbon of vegetation, where a surprising wealth of desert-adapted animals can be found; in camp the research centre provides even more insights. The Skeleton Coast Camp features eight en-suite tents, a main area and a pool with panoramic view over the dried up Hoanib River.
Overnight: Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp
Day 9 - 10 Sossusvlei
Transfer to Sossusvlei by private light aircraft. Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is the place to stay when visiting the impressive dunes. With just ten villas, made of glass and brick, the lodge is set against the backdrop of the Namib Desert’s ancient mountain scenery, which can be enjoyed to the full from the main lodge with its wrap-around verandah and fold-back doors. Your villa also has its own private deck and outdoor shower, to really appreciate getting back to nature.
Even at night, natural wonders are the main draw with an impressive observatory and in-house astronomer on hand to help you decipher the night sky. If you have time on arrival, let off steam with an exhilarating quad biking excursion.
Overnight: Sossusvlei Desert Lodge
Day 11 - 13 NamibRand
Visit the magnificent Sossusvlei dunes this morning, arriving in time to see the sunrise casting dramatic shadows of these vast waves of sand. Spend some time taking photographs and, if you’re feeling energetic, running up and down the dunes, before heading back to the lodge for breakfast. After breakfast you will be transferred by 4WD to your final stop in Namibia. The journey to Wolwedans Boulders Camp will take around two hours, through the peaceful NamibRand scenery. The camp is situated 45 km south of Wolwedans and surrounded by enormous granite rocks in a beautifully unspoilt landscape. The spacious tents include comfortable beds, en-suite showers, private plunge pools, fans and mosquito nets. From Boulders Safari Camp you will explore the deep south of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. With guided scenic drives, two to three hour walking safaris exploring the ancient hunting grounds of the Bushmen and eBiking, you won’t be short of things to do. Finish the day with sundowners that can be enjoyed from the top of a mountainous rock plateau close by, with a stunning view out across the unspoilt Namibian landscape.
