Detailed Description

Namibia is experienced outdoors, a vast blanket of chameleonic landscape providing the theater space for thrilling safari adventures. It’s rugged and wild, mile after mile of wilderness. Yet it’s never lonely. Black rhinos plod across arid savannah, elephant herds cover waterholes, and the predatory cats salivate at a vast buffet of antelopes. Fully experiencing Namibia necessitates a traveler with an intrepid spirit and a desire to be outdoors. This unique itinerary rewards that traveler, handcrafting a route through the country’s finest attractions and most spectacular experiences.

Start in Windhoek and head north, cruising through Damaraland’s hypnotic spell and setting the scene for being alone with nature. Hiking trails and passing herds surround the camp, before an intimate encounter with an iconic Himba tribe unveils the secrets to surviving off the land. Keep heading north, cutting through vibrant mountains and sparkling desert, and seeking out the adapted dwellers that migrate to Palmwag’s oasis. Black rhinos, huge desert elephants, lion prides; the land dances with drama and charm, and yes, you will be setting up camp in the middle of this ethereal unfenced land.

Quickly forget the stereotyped impressions of “camping.” You’re not going to be roughing it. Camping provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in some of the planet’s most untamed and untouched wildernesses. That means drifting asleep to the calls of elephants and waking up to giraffe surrounding the camp. However, this luxury experience provides a supreme level of comfort, with raised beds, shower facilities, sumptuous meals, and dining experiences beneath the stars. Camps are prepared for your arrival and a dedicated guide and driver ensure that all you need to do is relax.

Palmwag’s palm trees burst with life, guiding nomads to this place of watery abundance. It’s difficult to be any further from modern civilization, and that impression of wilderness is elevated further at Etosha National Park. Now there is astonishing diversity to accompany the profusion of wildlife, over a hundred different mammals to be discovered in three days of enchanting safari action. Start in the restricted Western part of the park, a captivating collection of waterholes helping ensure stunning safari moments directly before your tent. The accommodation has more amenities here, the permanent luxury camp providing delightful massage showers and wonderful wooden viewing platforms. From the big cats to the endangered rhinos, the peculiar antelopes to the immense herds, Etosha fulfills all African safari dreams. Relax, indulge, and spend three days exploring, including a full day crossing the park from west to east. After eight exhilarating days you connect onto a flight to Windhoek where your international departure awaits.

All aspects of this tour are fully customizable. Popular and easily included additions to this itinerary are the city of Cape Town, safari in Botswana, or an unforgettable adventure in Southern Namibia.
