This morning’s flight (approx 10h30) takes us south to the heart of the Namib Desert where we are based for 2 nights in the luxury retreat of Little Kulala. Set within the 40,000 hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve at the edge of the extensive Namib Naukluft National Park. Join a morning guided game drives to Sossusvlei’s stunning red sand dunes, a private gate into the national park allows for early arrival at the dunes where this haunting landscape at sunrise is captivating. Kulala Wilderness Reserve, a 40,000–hectare (98 842–acre) tract of land, is home to all forms of desert wildlife and borders the expansive Namib Naukluft Park. The Sossusvlei dunes rise dramatically more than 300 metres and are surrounded by awe–inspiring topography. Emphasis is laid on the smaller desert fauna, spectacular scenery and the incredible night sky. Larger desert–adapted wildlife such as ostrich, springbok and gemsbok flourish here with carnivores such as bat– eared fox, Cape fox, cheetah and black–backed jackal often seen. Two nights are spent here on a fully inclusive basis to enjoy this remarkable desert region.
Enjoy a bird’s eye view of the ever–changing patterns of the dunes, some ancient shipwrecks and the vast pink blanket of flamingos across Walvis Bay. Take in the rugged beauty of the Skeleton Coast both from the air and the ground. We will endeavour to find rare and endangered black rhino across the desert, as well as desert adapted elephant, amongst an amazing variety of other mammals, birds and reptiles. Alternatively, there is the opportunity to find local Damara, Herero and Ovambo communities and have a chance to meet and interact with them. A great accolade to the Damaraland Wilderness Camp is its continuing hard work with the local community to live in harmony with its wildlife and the environment. Another destination for this safari is Desert Rhino Camp, from which you will be able to track black rhino with Save The Rhino Trust.
Flying by light aircraft later in the morning takes us to the private Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park, we join game drives, during the day and night, where we will see an abundance of animals including endangered species and a wealth of bird life in this vast arena. Home to elephant and rhino, leopard and lion, and a plethora of plains game, game viewing is rewarding. Perhaps head out with an armed guide should you choose to go on foot within this reserve and experience the vast array of life, small and large. Ranking as one of Africa’s largest parks, Etosha is renowned for its impressive white pan of over 6,000km2. It boasts one of the few growing populations of black rhino in the world and affords excellent mammal and bird sightings. Experience fine dining under thatch overlooking the reserve’s great plains and continue with still more breath–taking views across the reserve from the comfort of your own private balcony.
Taking a flight from Ongava around 13h25 we take our memories with us and return to Windhoek, arriving at the airport just before 14h30 – ensure you allow sufficient connection time.edit me
