Rugged yet fragile, barren but beautiful, Namibia is an enchanting wilderness that holds the very essence of Africa. Get away from it all and enjoy unspoilt landscapes and wide horizons. Wifi not always available, so be prepared to get away from technology!

Namibia has some of the darkest night skies due to very low cloud cover and virtually no pollution. This means that it provides some of the best stargazing opportunities in the world.

And there’s lots of opportunities to see wildlife!

Itinerary

Day 1: Explore Windhoek

Windhoek is home to approximately three hundred and fifty thousand people, an extremely small capital by global standards.  The city centre is characterised by a proliferation of German style buildings, a lasting reminder of Namibia’s early colonial history.

Accommodation: Villa Vista – family owned upmarket accommodation close to the city centre

Day 2: Okonjima Plains Camp
The Okonjima Experience: an opportunity  for leopard tracking – search for the rare & endangered species rarely seen, even by locals! This activity offers guests the opportunity to be part of the 28 year study, aiming to provide insights into a sustainable future for the leopard populations.

Accommodation: Plains Camp – luxurious camp with quirky and modern rooms  that blend beautifully into the environment.  Look out at a stunning view of the natural veldt.

Days 3 – 5: Etosha National park
Etosha National Park is a major sanctuary for a variety of animal species in Africa, protecting the largest concentration of game in the country. Spend time watching the floodlit water holes on your Namibia safari, creating a natural theatrical spectacle for you to sit back and enjoy. Morning safaris and a night drive maximise your opportunities to see wildlife.

Accommodation: Mokuti Etosha Lodge and Okaukeujo Rest Camp –  comfortable air conditioned lodge and bush chalet, beautifully designed in keeping with the surrounding area.
