Namibia At Your Speed

This is the perfect tour for clients looking to explore the wonders of Namibia at their own pace. Take to the road and discover all the wonders of the world’s oldest desert, amazing scenery and spectacular wildlife encounters.

Day 2
Leaving Windhoek head south west to the incredible dunes of Sossusvlei. Take one of the amazing mountain passes to get there. Settle into your lodge and enjoy the afternoon in the Namib Desert. If the weather is good, why not spend the night on your own private sky deck and sleep under the African stars!

Day 3
Awake pre-dawn to visit the dunes of Sossusvlei, being sure to catch the ever shifting patterns as the sun rises. Don’t miss the chance to visit Dead Vlei as well. These towering dunes are iconic symbols of Namibia, and for the really brave, why not try climbing “Big Daddy”?

due to a fire at Onguma Tree Top Camp the camp is currently closed and we are expecting it to re-open in October 2021. While the camp is closed we are recommending Etosha Aoba (a sister camp on the same reserve) as an alternative – all safari activities and meals remain the same.

Depart at dawn for a safari in open sided safari vehicles into the Etosha National Park. Return to the camp as the heat starts climbing for breakfast and time to relax during the heat of the day. The camp boasts its own waterhole and the perfect place to relax during the day watching the animals come to drink.
In the afternoon depart on a second safari on the Onguma Reserve in search of Africa’s big game.
