Fabulous Namibia Fly-in Safari - 8 days
This 7 day flying Safari is specially designed for the traveler with limited time looking to experience the highlights of Namibia.
Welcome to Namibia!
Upon arrival at the Windhoek International Airport you will be welcomed and assisted by your pilot before boarding your privately chartered aircraft to Sossusvlei. Enjoy a scenic flight over this most ancient desert before arrival in Sossusvlei.
The rest of the day is at leisure, or you may register for one of the activities offered by the lodge.
This luxurious desert resort was built with adobe bricks typical of Arabian villages and tents similar to those of the Bedouin. Guests can have a unique swim in the desert by splashing in the clear, cool pool. All rooms and the bar have a desert view. The restaurant offers German/Namibian cuisine and serves South African wines. Sossusvlei is accessible either by road or air.
Overnight: Sossusvlei Lodge on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis.
Enjoy an early morning excursion to Sossusvlei, reputed to have the highest dunes in the world. Thereafter your private charter aircraft flies you across the ancient Namib Desert to Swakopmund, Namibia’s premier coastal resort, (also known as the “Jewel of Namibia”), which is tucked between ocean and desert.
Swakopmund Boutique Hotel
Graciousness meets contemporary chic at the new Swakopmund Boutique Hotel, a luxurious boutique hotel in the historic heart of Swakopmund. This intimate boutique hotel offers direct access to the town’s vibrant street life, quaint architecture, shopping, fine dining and long walks on the beach.
Overnight: Swakopmund Boutique Hotel on a Bed and Breakfast basis
Founded in 1892, Swakopmund was founded with the intention of becoming the main harbor of the German colony, German South West Africa. Culturally and architecturally, Swakopmund was particularly influenced by German colonization and there are many beautiful examples of German colonial architecture to be found. Visitors can explore Swakopmund quite comfortably on foot.
After an early breakfast, you will be transferred to Walvis Bay for a Marine Cruise
Experience the beauty and variety of sea life around Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, and enjoy the rich diversity of birds, seals, dolphins, and, in season, humpback whales. Schools of dolphins swim alongside the boat, and seals frequently jump aboard for a visit. A brunch of fresh Walvis Bay Oysters and light snacks, along with sparkling wine will be served aboard.
Continuing to Damaraland we include a visit to the famous rock engravings and paintings at Twyfelfontein, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2007 as well as to Burnt Mountain and the rock formation known as “The Organ Pipes”.
This luxury camp is nestled in the boulders, facing out onto superb scenery. Taking advantage of the nearby Aba Huab River and all consuming expansive landscape, Kipwe offers a refreshing perspective on traditional safari life. Incorporating boulders, small red basalt rocks and mopane branches, it has a natural organic feel. Activities at the camp include nature drives with the possibility of seeing the desert-adapted elephants in the dry season. This would be on your own account.
Overnight: Camp Kipwe on a Dinner, bed and breakfast basis
Enjoy a leisurely morning before departure to Etosha National Park.
Etosha National Park
Namibia’s Etosha National Park is a huge saltpan surrounded by flat bush land. This giant nature reserve is approximately 22,000 square kilometers in size, supporting an estimated 300 lions, 300 rhinos, 2000 giraffes and 1500 elephants. Particularly numerous are the dainty springbok – of which there are at least 30,000! Etosha National Park has a good infrastructure – well maintained gravel roads lead to the waterholes, where game viewing is at its best.
Enjoy an afternoon game drive into the park on day 5. On Day 6, a full day game drive is included.
Taleni Africa - Etosha Village
Situated a short distance from the Anderson Gate, Etosha Village offers modern styling based on a traditional African village.

After a hearty breakfast, relax before your departure to Okonjima, and The AfriCat Foundation.

Okonjima Lodge home to the Africa Foundation
Okonjima lies nestled within the unspoiled beauty of the Omboroko Mountains. This is a private, family-run guest lodge with luxury en-suite double rooms and a secluded swimming pool. Feel free to stroll around the garden, where you may encounter a variety of animals, rescued by the AfriCat Foundation.
