What is this safari about?
A 10-day privately guided conservation safari through some of the most remote parts of Namibia, including the Skeleton Coast and Kaokoveld.
This is an area which has been largely devoid of any ‘tourism infrastructure’ but we are now able to offer a completely luxury accommodated safari through the region, making exclusive use of conservancy owned or conservancy private sector joint venture establishments. Transfer is in air-conditioned 4x4. This is the first safari of its kind offered by private operators.
This safari is unique in every way and has been carefully considered to give the traveller, the most authentic insight into this region. You will have your own professional and experienced conservancy orientated naturalist guide, who will enhance your experience by making it a fascinating and ‘hands-on’ journey of discovery amidst very dramatic scenery and experiences. Your guide will have an intimate knowledge of each area and camp/lodge that you visit, allowing him to share the local highlights whilst adding continuity and depth to your safari. The presence and companionship of your guide will turn your safari into an experience of a lifetime!
Why is this special?
- Experience first-hand the world’s single-most successful conservation success story.
- Search for desert adapted elephant, rhino and lion along the Hoanib and Hoarusib Rivers.
- Track the last free roaming population of black rhino on foot.
- Stay at Namibia’s only wholly owned conservancy lodges, as well as some VERY nice private lodges!
- Travel through vast tracts of unfenced and pristine wilderness.
- Visit authentic Himba settlements.
Where is this?
These are Namibia’s most remote regions, with access allowed only to those few who know the area intimately. An area free of game fences and home to some of the most specialized mammals on earth, including desert adapted black rhino, elephant and lions. These areas are also home to the ancient Himba culture. This combined with some of the most spectacular scenery in Namibia, makes for what must be one of the most authentic and pioneering safaris available.
Who can go?
Min of two people and min age of 12 years. Ideal for couples, or small groups of friends, that shares a sense of adventure and a passion for conservation.
What should I expect to pay?
The rates for the 10-day safari start at USD 6 900 per person sharing on a fully inclusive basis. This rate excludes the air transfers required at the start and end of the tour. These will be quoted separately.
What extensions do you recommend?
Extensions to iconic destinations such as Sossusvlei and Etosha would work well, as will an overnight stay in Windhoek.
