Itinerary

Swain Destinations: Best of Namibia Wing Safari

Day 1 Welcome to Johannesburg, South Africa
Upon arrival into Johannesburg you will be met and assisted on foot too your accommodation.

Johannesburg is the economic heart of South Africa, the central focus of Egoli ('Place of Gold'), as the Sotho name for Gauteng suggests. The largest and richest city in South Africa, Johannesburg's lifestyle is a fast-paced and hectic one.

Intercontinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel

Day 2 Johannesburg to Sossusvlei
This morning make your own way on foot to Johannesburg International Airport for your flight to Namibia (not included). Upon arriving into Windhoek, you will be met and assisted with connecting onto your flight to Sossuslvlei.

Internationally known as a photographer’s dream, Sossusvlei with its monumental dunes was formed by multi-directional winds. The photogenic lure of this area is breathtaking, boasting exceptional scenery, as well as a wild and romantic spirit. It is made up of a vast, dry clay pan over which towers a sea of magnificent sand dunes, reputedly the highest dunes in the world. When it has rained sufficiently, the main pan draws flamingos and other aquatic birds to the area.

Day 3 Activities at Kulala Desert Lodge
Unique and breathtaking in its beauty, Sossusvlei is situated in the Namib Naukluft Park. The photogenic lure of this area is breathtaking, boasting exceptional scenery, as well as a wild and romantic spirit. Why not experience the unimaginable magic of flying above the desert in a hot air balloon?

Spend the day enjoying the activities offered at Kulala Desert Lodge. On guided nature walks, explore the wonders of an ancient desert – its geological formations and all its desert-adapted creatures. Gemsbok, springbok, Cape and bat-eared foxes, spotted and brown hyaenas, ostriches, aardwolf, black-backed jackals, a myriad of fascinating insects such as buck-spoor spiders and antlions, endemic dune larks, and barking geckos, whose iconic calls signal the end of day. Climb and scramble down the 300-metre red ochre dunes at Sossusvlei. Hike through Sesriem Canyon, where water carved through rock over millennia, or take a leisurely stroll near camp on the Tsauchab River Trail. Dash over the plains on an electric ‘fat bike’, a family favorite. Sip sundowners as the sun fires up the sky, then fades; sleep under the most impossibly starry sky on Earth. Take it all in from the air, ballooning over this otherworldly landscape.

Day 4 Sossusvlei to Damaraland
Fly over the dunes of the Namib and Sossusvlei continuing to Damaraland.

Damaraland is renowned for its interesting flora and fauna dominated by rugged mountain ranges and steep escarpments, scorched by a relentless desert sun and inhabited almost exclusively by the unique semi-nomadic Himba tribe. Game species include desert elephant, black rhino, ostrich and springbok. If you want to be inspired by one of Mother Nature’s rarest beasts, searching for the endangered Desert elephant in Damaraland is a must.

It is lauded as one of the country's best camps, with sensational views of the surrounding desert plains, ancient valleys and soaring peaks of the Brandberg Mountains.

Spot desert-adapted elephants and other wildlife on nature walks and drives, learning their survival skills in this arid place. Search for smaller desert dwellers; follow a guide on a scorpion night walk with UV spotlighting. Travel to Tywfelfontein to view astounding San rock art dating back 6000 years. Visit farmers from the local Torra Conservancy, and hear how human-wildlife conflict has shifted to conservation.
