Travel off the beaten path in Namibia. From your luxurious lodge in the Namib Desert, venture onto little-known trails in search of wildlife — then join resident astronomers at a specially designed observatory for a presentation on the constellations of the southern skies. Enjoy a private picnic breakfast at sunrise and a lavishly prepared dinner at sunset over the massive Namibian sand dunes. And get a different perspective from your private plane as you fly over the dunes on your way to search for shipwrecks along the Skeleton Coast. Journey to the unique saline desert of Etosha National Park where you’ll spot rare, desert-adapted elephants, lions and giraffes. Cruise Walvis Bay on your chartered catamaran, spotting abundant seals and dolphins. Meet with local families of the Himba tribe and hear their traditions and stories. Step into the past on a guided tour of Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home to centuries-old rock carvings. Join us to experience everything that Namibia has to offer.
