Your Fly-in Luxury Namibia Safari begins in the vibrant city of Windhoek where you will be transferred from your hotel of choice to Eros Airport. Here, you will board a private light aircraft flight and journey over the central highlands and ancient desert realms to the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge airstrip in the NamibRand Nature Reserve. On arrival, your guide will welcome you and transfer you to your lodge. Set against the backdrop of Sossusvlei Private Desert Reserve, the luxurious Sossusvlei Desert Lodge offers guests a secluded retreat on the border of an International Dark Sky Reserve, so you are assured a stargazing extravaganza. Explore the world’s oldest desert on specialist-led scenic 4×4 drives, guided desert walks and quad-bike tours. You will also have the opportunity to visit Namib Naukluft National Park. Home to some of the tallest sand dunes in the world, you will enter the Park gates at sunrise to capture the dunes whilst the light is soft and shadows accentuate their towering shapes and curves.
Located in the Sossusvlei Private Desert Reserve, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge features 10 luxurious stone and glass suites fitted with a living room, large retractable skylight, shaded veranda and a private plunge pool that overlooks the desert vista. The main guest area includes a bar, sitting room, walk-in cellar and interactive kitchen, as well as a sunrise fitness centre and spa.
Discover the oldest living desert in the world on guided excursions to the Sossusvlei, specialist-led 4×4 drives and walks and world-class stargazing each night with the resident astronomer. You will also get to choose from a 45 minute scenic helicopter or hot air balloon flight over Sossusvlei (not valid July-August or 15 January-15 February and 25 December).
Wake up and enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the desert. Your guide will meet you and transfer you to the nearby airstrip for your private light aircraft flight to Mowani Mountain Camp. You’ll catch a birds eye view of Namibia’s captivating Atlantic coastline dotted with the haunting shipwrecks, crowded seal colonies, abandoned diamond camps and glittering lagoons of Walvis Bay. The secluded Mowani Mountain Camp is hidden amongst the towering boulders that make up the Damaraland and is the perfect base to explore this historical region. Discover the ancient rock engravings of Twyfelfontein, witness the desert adapted wildlife in Aba Huab River Valley and embark on the walking safari in the Damaraland desert in search of rhino and elephant.
This morning you will have an early departure from Mowani Mountain Camp as you make your north towards the southern border of Etosha National Park, stopping en route for a picnic lunch. Located in the privately-owned Ongava Game Reserve, Ongava Lodge offers discerning guests luxurious accommodation fitted with all the creature comforts you might need. Here, you can choose to relax at the lodge’s swimming pool and watch game at the nearby waterhole, or embark on expertly guided safari game drives and walking safaris in Etosha National Park, home to a wide variety of game and bird species.
