    Zannier Reserve

    You’ll arrive in Hosea Kutako International Airport and be welcomed by your driver who will take you to your hotel in a private vehicle.

    Surrounded by incredible landscapes, including the rolling hills of the Khomas Hochland on one side and the vast expanse of the Namib Desert on the other, Windhoek has a frontier town feel and is the perfect spot to pick up supplies before heading out on your adventure. 

    The rich colonial history of Windhoek can be seen in its historic Germanic influences. Dotted around the city are old German castles as well as a neo-baroque cathedral which is worth a visit.

    Sossusvlei

    One of Namibia’s most spectacular landmarks, the towering red dunes are some of the largest in the world. A photographer’s dream, at sunrise and sunset the dunes are ablaze with reds and oranges contrasted with the pitch blackness of their shaded sides. 

    A salt and clay plan, set within the vast expanse Namib Desert, Sossusvlei actually refers to the name of one pan but is often used to reference the wider area in which other pans such as Deadvlei, and the famous dunes of Dune 45 and Big Daddy are located. 

    The never-ending sea of dunes that surrounds the desolate pans is an awe-inspiring sight and you’ll soon see why Sossusvlei is the most visited place in the Namib Desert.

    Skeleton Coast

    The Skeleton Coast, a remote and hauntingly beautiful stretch of Namibia’s coastline, holds a unique allure for adventurous travellers. 

    Its name derives from the many shipwrecks that litter its shores. The vessels were claimed by the treacherous currents, created by the icy waters of the Benguela ocean current combining with the intense heat of the African sun. 

    You will spend three days exploring its dramatic, windswept dunes and rugged, rocky terrain. Spot desert-adapted elephants on game drives, canoe with seals, and witness a profusion of birdlife.

    Hoanib River

    Uncover the culture rich home of Ancient San rock art

    The Damaraland is a remote and sparsely populated region, ideal for travellers who want to avoid the tourist trail. 

    Named for the Damara ethnic group which hail from this region, the Damaraland offers a unique mix of desert-adapted wildlife – sustained by ancient watercourses snaking through the landscape – and phenomenal rock art. 

    The renowned ancient San bushmen artworks are a sight to behold and can be witnessed at various sites such as the Brandberg Mountain, Twyfelfontein and Spitzkoppe. The rock art is believed to date back 6,000 years, and it provides valuable insights into many aspects of the lives of indigenous hunter-gatherers in this area.

    Etosha’s defining feature is the immense Etosha Pan, a vast salt flat visible from space, which serves as the park’s heart. Waterholes around the pan draw an astonishing diversity of wildlife, from large herds of  elephants wallowing in the water, to lions, leopards, rhinos, giraffes, and countless others all enjoying the natural environment.
