Itinerary

Day 1: Relax in Windhoek

Arrive at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport & collect your car. Drive to Olive Grove Guest House for 1 night on a bed & breakfast basis.

Complete with a pool, sun loungers and a wellness room with masseuse, Olive Grove Guest House is the perfect start to your safari. Here you can unwind and relax after a long journey, taking advantage of nearby shops to stock up on any last minute items. Rooms are air-conditioned and have free Wi-Fi as well as a tea and coffee station and mini bar. Lunches and dinners are available at Olive Grove or you can walk the short distance to a local restaurant. Secure parking is available on site.

Days 2 – 4: Giants of the Desert

Drive to the Namib Desert & Little Kulala, set on a private reserve near the Sossusvlei dunes. Enjoy 3 nights on a full board basis.

The enormous sand dunes of Sossusvlei are the main attraction in the Namib Naukluft National Park but there is much else to see such as enigmatic desert wildlife and dramatic geological features. The expert guides at Little Kulala will open up the world of the Namib on drives and walks and can arrange hot-air balloon excursions for you to see sunrise over a red ocean of sand. Complete with their own plunge pool, the suites at Little Kulala are contemporary and stylish with natural elements woven into them. A highlight is a night spent on the roof of your suite in a ‘sky bed’ – an unforgettable way to view the cosmos above you.

Days 5 – 6: The Swakopmund Experience

Drive to the town of Swakopmund on the Atlantic Ocean coast. Check in at The Strand Hotel for 2 nights on bed & breakfast basis.

The appealing sight of Bavarian rooftops framed by palm trees and perhaps even pelicans perched on lamp posts means you have reached Swakopmund. The ideal stopover to catch up with a cappuccino after the Namib, this friendly town also has a reputation for adventure. Home to sky diving, ballooning, sand boarding and quad biking, Swakopmund also offers marine and birding tours. Your base is the beachside Strand Hotel, complete with spa, gym and three in-house restaurants as well as a concierge service to make bookings for activities, excursions and local restaurants.

Days 7 – 8: Track Black Rhino

Leaving your car in Swakopmund, you fly to the Damaraland region & transfer to Desert Rhino Camp for 2 nights on a full board basis.

Flying over the rugged, weather-blasted Damaraland landscape, it is hard to believe that much wildlife lives here. But Damaraland is home to black rhino and desert elephant as well as antelope and mountain zebra and a host of smaller creatures such as wild cats and honey badgers. Indeed, it has a predator population which is second only to that of the Etosha National Park with lion, cheetah, leopard and both brown and spotted hyena in the region. Day and night drives as well as walks with guides from Desert Rhino Camp take you into the heart of it. Accommodation takes the form of simple but comfortable tented suites with stunning Damaraland views.

Days 9 – 11: Ghosts of the Coast

Fly to the Skeleton Coast region & Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp where you will make your home for 3 nights on a full board basis.

Named after the ghostly shipwrecks that lie on its beaches, the Skeleton Coast is one of the most remote destinations in Namibia. You have a scenic flight into the heart of the area, staying at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp where you will explore both the wild and desolate coast itself as well as the interior. Here you will be surprised to find vegetated river valleys and permanent waterholes, frequented by animals ranging from elephants and giraffe to desert specialists gemsbok and springbok. The lodge has only eight suites, modern and stylish and incorporate natural cooling breezes as part of their design; the lodge’s pool is a welcome sight on hot summer days.

Day 12: The Journey Ends

Fly back to Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport where the safari comes to an end with the commencement of your onward travel arrangements.

After breakfast and goodbyes at Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp, you sit back on a shared charter flight to Windhoek. It is a journey time of around two and a half hours; the tour ends with your arrival at the airport and your onward flight.

Reviews

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!

Safari Online made our fantastic family holiday dream come true!!

Safari Online have been nothing but professional and incredible from the time we made our first enquiry to the last day of our stunning holiday. Nothing was too much trouble for Walter. We are now starting to plan our next family Safari for 2019. Guess who we will be booking with??? Safari Online we hope you are ready!!!!!

Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
An incredibly well organised tour with no hassles whatsoever.

Safari Online understood our needs and was able to present us with sensible options to choose from. It was evident that this tour operator has knowledgable and experienced agents who can arrange a seemless tour. We were provided with a professional online itinary which was comprehensive and easy to use, knew exactely what to expect, and encountered no stumble blocks along the way.

Gwen (AU)

Lorraine (UK)
Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!
