Namibia: Africa’s adventure playground. The land of unrelenting sun, where the ground appears to beg the heavens for rain and the vast landscapes stretch uninterrupted for hundreds of kilometres, without signs of human intervention. Living deserts, where one gazes in wonder and amazement at the displays of changing natural colours, and at the animals and plants that somehow survive in this seemingly harsh environment.

Our adventure in Namibia begins in the capital city of Windhoek.

Leaving the city lights behind we enter the heart of the Namib, taking in its vast plains, red dunes, towering mountains and ever changing landscapes. Late afternoon, we reach the GREENFIRE DESERT CAMP, a remote camp nestled against a rock outcrop, within a conservancy that forms part of the vast Namib Rand Nature Reserve, and home for the next two nights. The reserve gives life to a variety of desert adapted fauna and flora and many an animal species. Enjoy an extensive walk as well as a day, and a night desert drive during our time here.

We awake to desert vistas that extend further than the eye can see. All animals here exist in completely natural surroundings, and are free to move unrestricted over the full extent of the reserve. Our expert guide will help us understand the unique desert fauna and flora, so today we start off with an ecology walk in this beautiful environment, searching for animals, foot prints, and signs of the behaviour and survival strategies that allow them to exist in these harsh conditions.
During the heat of the day guests have time to relax at the camp, or to explore the surrounding area on foot, should they wish to. Mid-afternoon we depart on a desert drive, up and over the magnificent dunes. As the evening approaches, a traditional sundowner drink is enjoyed while the sun dips over the African landscape. Once dark, we slowly drive back to camp anticipating to encounter some of the nocturnal animals adapted to living in the desert.

Setting off early, we cross the endless desert plains to the Sesriem Canyon and the awesome red Sossusvlei dunes – reputedly the highest in the world.
We transfer into the heart of the dunes, to spend some time climbing these spectacular mountains of sand, before taking a 4×4 transfer into Sossusvlei and Deadvlei – a clay pan characterized by dark dead camel thorn trees against the white pan floor. We explore these truly unique sites on foot, before the 4×4’s take us back to our vehicle.
In the afternoon we visit the Sesriem Canyon, before continuing to our camp-site for the night.

Crossing through Kuiseb Canyon, and the Namib-Naukluft National Park, we make our way to the port town of Walvis Bay, and then on to Swakopmund, where German influence still lingers from late 1800’s, and spend two nights in comfortable accommodation.
We explore this holiday town and its surrounds thoroughly, and enjoy both our evening meals at local restaurants (own expense).
Swakopmund is a must-see for any visitor, and offers guests a variety of adventure activities. Clients will have the opportunity to partake in quad biking, sand boarding and skydiving whilst here (own expense).

Today we head north up the harsh Skeleton Coast, a barren stretch of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, with scattered ship wrecks, littering the beaches.
We visit Cape Cross, a spectacular breeding ground for Cape fur Seals where more than a 100 000 seals take refuge.
We then venture back inland, travelling through the vast desert to the iconic Brandberg Mountain, the highest mountain in Namibia, and view a canvas of ancient rock art. Those not up for the walk can remain in camp and enjoy the beautiful surrounding views.
Tonight we snuggle in at the foot of the mountain, hoping to encounter the elusive rare desert elephant.

Making our way further north, we enter the renowned Etosha National Park, arguably the highlight of the tour. Becoming one with nature we enjoy two days of exploring the park.
