Accommodation is in small luxury camps set within Wilderness Safaris’ private concessions, while Wilderness Air transfers guests seamlessly between destinations.

The Best of Namibia air safari itinerary allows guests to experience the dramatic scenery the country has to offer, along with its desert-adapted wildlife and clear, star-filled night skies for breathtaking stargazing. Finally, this safari has another wondrous facet — observing Namibia from the air.

Days 1 & 2: Sossusvlei

Depart from Windhoek by air and spend two nights exploring the Sossusvlei region, staying in Kulala Wilderness Reserve, which provides convenient access to the splendour of the towering red dunes of the Namib.

Activities at Little Kulala start with early morning guided game drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei. Accessing the park through a private gate allows our early arrival at the dunes and maximises photographic opportunities and scenic grandeur.

Accommodation: Little Kulala
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Days 3 & 4: Damaraland

Enjoy a scenic three-hour flight over the Namib Desert for a different view of the desert and the Skeleton Coast’s spectacular topography, before deviating inland to northern Damaraland for two nights.

We leave the sandy dunes and make our way to an ancient rock-strewn landscape of a previous glacial era. This private concession supports a diverse complement of arid-adapted wildlife— including several herds of Namibia’s acclaimed ‘desert-adapted’ elephants and healthy numbers of Hartmann’s Mountain zebra, Southern giraffe, gemsbok and springbok in a landscape dotted with equally interesting flora.

Accommodation: Damaraland Camp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Days 5 & 6: Etosha National Park

One hour flight by light aircraft to Ongava Game Reserve for a two night stay at Ongava Lodge. This intimate camp is scenically nestled around a rocky outcrop and overlooks the vast plains beyond and a productive waterhole that is floodlit at night.

Ongava is a prolific 30,000-hectare (74,132-acre) private reserve bordering the acclaimed Etosha National Park. This reserve is a conservation success story and a haven for large concentrations of wildlife: notably lion, springbok, gemsbok, wildebeest, Burchell’s and Hartmann’s zebra, waterbuck, red hartebeest, eland and the largest population of the endemic Black-faced impala outside Etosha.

Accommodation: Ongava Lodge
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
