Fly into Windhoek on a Thursday, overnight in the city and set out the next morning on an adventure of a lifetime, encompassing many highlights of this special country.
Spend two nights at lodges in the Namib Desert area, visiting Sossusvlei (highest dunes in the world) and Sesriem Canyon before heading to Walvis Bay and Swakopmund for another two nights.
Travel via the desolate, rolling hills of the Kuiseb Moon Valley towards the Atlantic Ocean. In Walvis Bay we visit the shallow lagoon, one of the most important wetland areas on the African continent and a RAMSAR World Heritage Site. Over 80% of the African flamingos feed in this lagoon and present a breathtaking picture when they appear in groups counting a few hundred thousand.
We then travel into Damaraland and Etosha National Park (three nights), before returning to Windhoek.
We currently have interest from passengers based in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. Flights to Windhoek are arranged to suit you.
