From Etosha to Sossusvlei, Namibia offers you an Africa experience like no other.


Namibia is an African destination unlike any other. This 11 day round trip from Windhoek takes in the dunes of Sossusvlei, Etosha National Park and spectacular Damaraland.

Etosha National Park is one of Africa’s most intriguing wildlife regions. It contains many of the endemic species unique to Namibia such as Black-faced Impala, along with familiar favourites such as Elephants, Giraffes, Zebra and critically endangered Black Rhinos.

Discover a past way of life in this region in Damaraland. Passing by Damara villages, you’ll discover the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein, the Organ Pipes and Burnt Mountain before arriving at the coastal resort town of Swakopmund.

Your last stop is Sossusvlei. This eerie moon landscape is the Namibia that has intrigued travellers craving an Africa experience like no other. The incredible dunes here rise up to 325 metres into the air. The sight of acacia trees against the backdrop of bright red sands will convince you you’ve stepped into an alien world on Earth. It’s yours to explore before your return to Windhoek.
