The dunes rise hundreds of meters into the sky in a landscape associated with the Sahara but this is Namibia. The distorted blackened trees of the Dead Vlei suggest a land of strange otherworldly beauty not found anywhere else; a land of beautiful extremes. Namibia really is awesome. With our small group you’ll experience the traditional braai (BBQ) under the stars in the African bush, perfect for bonding and sharing stories with your fellow travellers. Meet nomadic tribes, discover spectacular landscapes along the way and experience extraordinary wildlife encounters. Well travel to the Kalahari Desert and to Sossusvlei, an awe inspiring landscape of sand dunes. But it’s not only desert landscapes that you will find in Namibia; travel north east and you can enjoy a cool breeze and the rugged coast in Swakopmund, a quaint German inspired town. Nearby Walvis Bay offers unique wildlife opportunities with its thriving colonies of sea lions, great flocks of flamingos and perhaps large pods of dolphins. In Twyfelfontein we take a bush walk with local Bushmen and visit the famous White Lady Rockpaintings. We may also see the desert elephants. At the Living Museum of the Ovahimba well meet the fascinating Himba Tribe community. We will stay in two different areas of the Etosha National Park for wildlife opportunities on a series on game drives. Breaking up our return journey to Windhoek, we will relax in the tranquil surroundings of our beautiful guesthouse in the Elegant Farmstead. If you still have some energy there are plenty of€tivities and hiking trails to keep you busy. Namibia is a vast country and although we are only concentrating on its north, the distances between the centres will be long. Many of the roads are without tarmac and can be dusty and bumpy, so bring along your sense of adventure.
