A desert dunescape more reminiscent of the surface of Mars than anywhere on Earth. A South Atlantic sea breeze kissed with the scent of fresh-baked Bavarian apfelstrudel. The daily drama of survival on the sun-beaten savannah. Namibia is at once both quintessential Africa, and otherworldly. This special Explorers Club journey brings you deep into the heart of Southern Africa and introduces you to its wild creatures and still wilder landscapes.

From the capital Windhoek, your adventure begins to the north with a drive through the forested slopes of the Onboroko Mountains and the Waterberg Plateau, an isolated region that serves as a sanctuary for many of Namibia’s endangered species. The next morning, meet Explorers Club member Dr. Laurie Marker, director of the non-profit Cheetah Conservation Fund, before taking a private tour of the Fund’s rehabilitation center for these beautiful big cats.

Things get even wilder as you head north to Etosha National Park, whose watering holes attract wildebeests, impalas, leopards and a host of other animals. Game drives through the park will bring you into close contact with the wildlife and the gorgeous savanna they call home.

From Etosha, your next stop is the Ongava Private Game Reserve, one of Namibia’s largest and an ideal spot to track lions, rhinos, elephants, and giraffes. Ongava strives to keep the safari experience personal, and your game viewing here will feel as though the reserve is open just for you and the few other guests in your safari vehicle. ... Show More »

Next, head to Damaraland to a secluded mountain lodge that lives in harmony with its environment. Hike the grounds, track desert-dwelling elephants from an open safari vehicle, or unwind under the impossibly clear African sky.

You’ll also get the chance to strap on a sandboard to surf the dunes before and explore the Bavarian-accented city of Swakopmund before moving on to your final stop: Sossusvlei.

After strapping on a sandboard to surf the dunes around Bavarian-accented Swakopmund, the trip moves on to your final stop: the ochre-tinted dunes of Sossusvlei, where the great Namib Desert begins. You’ll explore this vast sea of sand and the spectacular Sesriem Canyon on a private tour with an expert guide. Take hold of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and discover a side of Africa that’s equal parts familiar and fantastical. You’ll return home forever changed.

Day 8: Etosha - Damaraland

Meet your private driver for a transfer to Damaraland. En route, pass by the scenic Burnt Mountain, a panorama of desolation with colored rocks contrasting vividly against the grey-black surroundings. The Organ Pipes, a mass of basalt slabs in a ravine gouged out by a river, is another geological curiosity in the area. Arrive at your game lodge in the late afternoon. Approximate driving time is 6 hours.

The 352 200ha Torra Conservancy lies in northern Damaraland, where the landscape is characterised by hills interspersed with valleys and dry riverbeds that occasionally flow, sustaining riverine vegetation through the long dry seasons. Early morning fog provides precious water to the flora and fauna, all of which has adapted superbly to this harsh environment. Despite its aridity, the area supports a surprisingly high diversity of wildlife including a healthy number of desert-adapted elephant and good populations of Hartmann's mountain zebra, southern giraffe, gemsbok, springbok, with occasional cheetah and black rhino as well interesting flora like euphorbias, pachypodiums and shepherd's trees. Birding is excellent with Herero Chat and Benguela Long-billed Lark common finds. The conservancy is the result of a highly successful partnership between Wilderness Safaris and the local Torra community - that has become an inspiration for communities and conservationists throughout Africa

Accommodation: Damaraland Camp

The Damaraland Camp is situated in the Huab River Valley, one of the most pristine wilderness areas in Namibia, only 90km from Torra Bay in the Torra Conservancy.  Damaraland Camp is one of the country's best camps, with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains.  This camp is proud to hold the WTTC Tourism for Tomorrow Conservation Award in 2005.  This eco-friendly construction of Damaraland Camp has merged new technology with ancient methodology in an incredibly inventive manner. Another unique feature of this sustainable ecotourism venture is that it is owned and largely ran by the local community who has put forth their own distinctive optimism and cheerful nature into the Damaraland Camp experience. This unusual flavor comes from the mixed heritage of the local peoples.  Accommodation at Damaraland Camp consists of 10 adobe-styled, thatched units each raised on individual wooden decking - part of which extends out to form a large viewing deck with magnificent vistas.  Each tent has en-suite facilities (shower only), a walk-in dressing area and built-in fan.  The spacious, thatched living area features a restaurant and bar, complete with fireplace.  Guests can enjoy various activities at Damaraland Camp, featuring guided nature drives and walks.  The delightful community comfort and hospitality will ensure you have a memorable stay.

    The trip was magical from start to finish. Kensington thought of every detail to make the trip so enjoyable and interesting. This trip will go down as one of the best, if not the best, trip we have ever taken!

    Fabulous Trip. Everyone worked to make this trip absolutely memorable. I highly recommend Carolyn, our agent, and Kensington Tours in general.

    Everything was seamless! The itinerary covered all of the highlights of Casablanca and Marrakesh with enough time for us to wander at our leisure. Our driver, Rashid and tour guide, Achmed were very knowledgeable and fantastic.... always on time, extremely well informed, tremendously kind, humorous and always flexible to our wants and desires.

  • Manuel G — October 06, 2017 — Africa

    Our guides, George, Ben and Michael were fantastic. Both George and Ben were amazing at spotting animals and knowing where to find them.

  • Barbara H — October 06, 2017 — Africa

    Trip of a lifetime! Our guides, George (Kenya) and Raymond (Tanzania), were both outstanding- knowledgeable, personable, patient, and accommodating.
