A desert dunescape more reminiscent of the surface of Mars than anywhere on Earth. A seaside graveyard where the rusty bones of giants fade to dust. 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 some of those creatures up close with a private tour of the AfriCat Foundation, a rehabilitation center for cheetahs, lions and other big cats on the grounds of the Okonjima Nature Reserve.

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 savannah 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 into the foothills of the Damaraland’s Grootberg Massif to a secluded mountain lodge that lives in harmony with its environment. Hike the grounds, track animals from an open safari vehicle, or unwind under the impossibly clear African sky.

Pounded by heavy surf and often cloaked in thick fog, the Skeleton Coast is where the lost ships of the South Atlantic come to die. Here, you’ll take to the skies aboard a private plane for a bird’s-eye glimpse of the more than 1,000 shipwrecks that line the shore as well as the massive seal colony at Cape Fria. 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.

Few sights on Earth can top 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.

Accommodation is in ten en-suite meru tents, which are connected by pathways to the main dining tent.  Extensive use is made of solar power throughout, both in the kitchen and the guest bathrooms, as well as for general electricity requirements. Necessary comforts have not been overlooked though, and these include flush toilets, hot-and-cold running water and the stunning open-air “bucket” shower.  Simple, fresh, wholesome meals are prepared, either on solar or on open fires, and enjoyed under African skies.All are relatively simple, and protected by a thatched roof.  Your days here are spent exploring the area on foot and in open game drive vehicles with the exceptionally knowledgeable guides.  This is not a fast paced safari, but rather a privileged introduction to an environment that holds many of Namibia’s unique natural attractions.

Day 9: Damaraland

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

Your days here are spent exploring the area on foot and in open game drive vehicles with the exceptionally knowledgeable guides. Desert adapted wildlife forge a precarious existence amongst the towering basalt mountains and Mopani-shaded river beds of the Kunene region. This apparently unforgiving landscape is actually refuge to a diverse number of plant and mammal species. This is not a fast paced safari, but rather a privileged introduction to an environment that holds many of Namibia’s unique natural attractions.

Although not a separate species, and not much different from other savannah elephants Loxodonta africana africana, Namibia's desert-dwelling elephants are special nonetheless. They are of high national and international conservation priority, and have been designated as top priority for protection by the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature).

Day 11: Swakopmund

Departing from Swakopmund, this flight progresses up the Swakop River to an area of exceptional and ancient erosion know as the “Moon Landscape”.  From this spectacular feature, you direct towards the Rössing Uranium Mine.  Leaving this man-made feature behind, the flight approaches the rugged and beautiful Spitzkoppe – granite peaks that tower more than 700 metre from the surrounding flat desert.   Flying northwards you pass the Brandberg.  This is the highest mountain in Namibia and its majestic cliffs and rocks are home to many thousands of rock paintings, the most famous being that of the White Lady.

Just north of the Brandberg, you encounter the Ugab River and turning westwards, the flight progresses down the river.  This river is a particularly important oasis for desert wildlife.  Of spectacular interest along the Ugab River is the stunningly exposed geology including the Ugab folds.  Upon reaching the Coast and turning southwards, you progress along the Skeleton Coast that forms part of the Skeleton Coast National Park.  The flight passes Cape Cross, home to one of the largest cape fur seal colonies on earth.  

Proceeding southwards you pass the town of Henties Bay, a popular fishing destination.  The unlikely settlement of Woltzkasbaken, famous for its colonies of coastal lichens, is crossed before the flight arrives back in Swakopmund.

Day 13: Sossusvlei

Depart for a private guided tour to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei and Sesriem. Situated in the largest conservation area in Africa (the Namib-Naukluft National Park), Sossusvlei is possibly Namibia’s most spectacular and best-known attraction. Characterised by the large red dunes that surround it, Sossusvlei is a large, white, salt and clay pan and is a great destination all year round. The dunes in this area are some of the highest in the world and provide photographic enthusiasts with wonderful images in the beautiful morning and evening light.

Sesriem Canyon is located approximately 4.5km from the entrance gate of the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The Tsauchab River has shaped the Canyon over millions of years and it is one of the few places in the area that holds water all year round.   

Close to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei is a clay pan characterized by dark, dead camel thorn trees contrasted against the white pan floor. The pan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded and the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, however they have not decomposed due to the dry climate. Deadvlei is at least 1km walk from the parking lot so be sure to take drinking water with you.

    Kristie did a wonderful job! She really took the time to understand our desires and built the trip accordingly. We were most appreciative of her attention to detail.

    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.
