Sossusvlei & Etosha Fly-In Safari

Inspirational safari holiday to Namibia

This fly-in itinerary takes you on a journey to the two most famous areas of Namibia, the Sossusvlei dunes, a colossal dune sea which is just made for photography, and Etosha National Park where you will experience a Big 5 safari. A memorable and scenic flight will take you to Sossusvlei where you will stay at Kulala Desert Lodge located within the arid Namib Desert. The dunes that are the main attraction. Photograph them, climb them, run down them or see them from above in a hot air balloon. Also explore the Kulala Nature Reserve on nature drives or guided walks with the chance of seeing the likes of gemsbok, bat-eared fox, brown hyena and various birds.

More adventure beckons at Anderssons, a camp in the private Ongava Private Game Reserve that borders the Etosha National Park. See the Big 5, including both black and white rhino, as well as giraffe and several antelope species on day and night game drives 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 room or the pool where you can enjoy game sightings from the camp's prolific waterhole.
