Best of Namibia 2018 Safari

Namibia - Classic Safari

October 8 - October 25, 2018

This is a classic safari to Namibia covering four different regions of this amazing country. We will start by flying from Johannesburg to the coast and staying at Walvis Bay and visiting points of interest in this area. That includes seeing the desert adapted wildlife, seal colonies, flamingos and exploring the sand dunes and the nearby historic town of Swakopmund. An optional  scenic flight over the Skeleton Coast and Sossusvlei area in planned.

From Walvis Bay we will take a commercial flight to Windhoek airport and spend a couple of nights in a luxury villa on the property of the N/a’an ku sê Foundation, a conservation organization and wildlife sanctuary. Here we will have unique opportunities to interact with and photograph African wildlife.

From there we will drive to Namibia's flagship national park: Etosha National Park with multi-night stays at Okaukeujo, their prime, central location for optimal game viewing and at another camp, Mokuti, at the edge of the park.  We will then take a charter flight to the Caprivi area and stay at Lianshulu Lodge which offers game drives and boating activities to see the spectacular wildlife there along the Kwando River in Namibia's Zambezi Region.

After Caprivi we will take a charter flight back the Etosha and stay overnight at Mokuti before returning to
N/a’an ku sê  by vehicle. There we will have more unique wildlife interaction experiences and relax at their beautiful location, before returning to Johannesburg.

A maximum of 8 people are on the safari - in 2 vehicles for maximum room and comfort for traveling & photography.

Participants will enjoy activities lead by experienced guides in our own game drive vehicle at each park.
We will stay at accommodations best situated to partake in various activities focused on the unique wildlife and
scenery at these locations. You can download a PDF of the planned itinerary HERE.
