This week-long fly-in exploration visits Namibia's spectacular Skeleton Coast, one of the world's most remote regions, and the Big 5 Etosha region for a memorable safari.
Following a night spent in Namibia's capital city Windhoek you will fly by light aircraft to the remote Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp in northern Damaraland. The landscape surrounding the camp is dramatically rugged and dotted with ancient welwitschia plant, dry riverbeds and seas of soft sand dunes. You can explore this area on foot or a game drive seeking out the flora and fauna that eke out an existence in this harsh environment. The Hoanib River provides life to giraffe, gemsbok, elephant herds and even lion prides. During your stay, we recommend a full day excursion to the windswept coastline where you can see the Cape fur seal colony and some of the famous shipwrecks. Weather dependent you will fly or drive back. If you can fly it is an opportunity to gain a different perspective of this isolated coastline in all its glory.
From here you will fly to the Ongava Private Game Reserve, bordering the Etosha National Park. This reserve is one of the best wildlife areas in the country where you can expect to see the Big 5 including both black and white rhino, as well as giraffe and several antelope species. You will stay at Ongava Tented Camp, an unfenced camp nestled in mopane woodland overlooking a waterhole. During your stay, you will partake in day and night game drives on both this private reserve and the neighbouring Etosha national Park. Being a private reserve there are other activities on offer that are not allowed in the national park such as tracking black rhino on foot and nature walks. During your 'down' time we suggest that you sit in photographic hides waiting on the wildlife to come to you or do the same from your tent or the pool where you can enjoy game sightings from the camp's prolific waterhole.
You will end this unforgettable trip with a flight back to Windhoek Airport to catch your international flight home.
