Itinerary

Signature Namibia

Day 1: Arrive Windhoek, Namibia

Brimming with near-endless natural wonders, Namibia contrasts the towering, surreal dunes of the Namib Desert with chilly South Atlantic coastlines. Arrive in Windhoek and transfer to your hotel, a restored castle with unique architecture, set on top of a picturesque hill.

Day 2: Sossusvlei | Namib Desert

Enjoy a morning city tour of Windhoek. This afternoon, fly to Sossusvlei and the starkly beautiful Namib Desert, its wildlife-rich stacks, streams and craggy. Sossusvlei stuns with its bands of amber, copper and vermillion cutting through the arid desert. Spend the remainder of your day at leisure at your desert-situated lodge.

Day 3: Sossusvlei | Towering Red Dunes

Experience Sossusvlei, from its clay pan that rarely fills with water to its magnificent terra cotta sand dunes that rise nearly a thousand feet into the blue sky. Set out early morning to witness it firsthand, embarking on a guided nature drive to dunes through a private gate on the Tsauchab River. Perhaps climb to the top of one of these dunes — among the highest in the world — for an unforgettable experience. Later, pause for a sundowner in the vast Namib Desert.

Day 4: Damaraland | Pristine Huab River Valley

Fly to Damaraland Camp, set within the Huab River Valley, with picturesque views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of Brandberg Mountain, which rise from valley floors beneath. Damaraland’s stark plains, are offset by ancient valleys and petrified forests, which are some 200 million years old. Rock art dating back hundreds of years can be viewed in the surrounding ravines and caves.

Day 5: Damaraland | Dramatic Vistas, Open Spaces

Embark on nature drives in search of desert elephants, which have adapted to this harsh region. They tend to roam around the dry riverbed and seen standing on their back legs to snatch the very last leaf with their trunks. You may take a guided walking safari, keeping watch for gemsboks, greater kudus and springboks.

Day 6: Damaraland | Twyfelfontein’s Engravings

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, which features one of the world’s largest concentrations of petroglyphs (engravings). Note the footprints and petroglyphs of wild animals — rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras, thought to be made over a period of 2,000 years by local San hunter-gatherers. They offer fascinating insight into San rituals, economic practices and belief systems.

Continue to the private Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park, where you intersect the boundless landscape during fascinating guided walks.
