The itinerary

The Discover Namibia programme starts in Windhoek, with a night at the Safari Court Hotel (four star), and a guide city tour.

The tour then heads to the Namib Desert, said to be one of the world’s oldest. The party will stay at the Namib Desert Lodge, and enjoy a sundown safari experience with views of native animals and the desert sunset.

The group will also spend a night at the Dune Star Camp, which is made up of wooden cabins situated high on petrified sand dunes with views of the desert.

The itinerary also includes a visit to Sossusvlei, an area within the Namib Naukluft Park, as well as a night dune walk where the party can look for scorpions and other nocturnal creatures.

There will also be time spent at Walvis Bay with a morning cruise in search of marine mammals.

Further highlight stops on the trip will include the Erongo Mountains, the Boulder Forest, Etemba wilderness camp, and Damara Living Museum.
