Day 5
Ongava Private Game Reserve

Recognised as one of Namibia's most important private game reserves, Ongava Private Game Reserve has earned global recognition for its outstanding conservation efforts and protection of the rare and endangered animal populations that are native to the region. 

As well as producing groundbreaking research, travellers to the reserve are encouraged to embark on dedicated safaris to experience this wildlife firsthand; and during your stay here, you'll have the privilege of embarking on game drives with Ongava Lodge. Throughout these drives, you can expect to encounter some of the reserve's most coveted creatures, including black and white rhinos, elephants and zebras.

Once you've packed and loaded up, you'll embark on a four-hour journey headed west towards your next destination at the Mowani Mountain Camp. Along the way you will witness the golden rolling hills of Ongava transform into ancient gigantic boulders of all shapes and sizes scattered across the landscape of Damaraland.

Day 6-8
2 nights stay at Mowani Mountain Camp

Closely nestled among intriguing granite boulders and African myrrh trees, the Mowani Mountain Camp eco-lodge feels at one with nature as it seamlessly blends into the Damaraland landscape. With ultimate access to the surrounding desert-scape, you can anticipate sightings of rare, desert-dwelling animals and game drives along ancient riverbeds. 

Day 7

During your stay at the Mowani Mountain Camp, you will visit the incredible ancient site of Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site recognized for its vast collection of rock carvings that are estimated to be 6,000 years old. The site contains the largest concentration of petroglyphs in Africa, providing an extensive depiction of the ritual and economic practices of the tribe. Believed to have been carved by the San people, the tribe is thought to be the oldest tribe in Africa, and possibly, the world. 

Day 8
Road transfer from Mowani Mountain Camp to Villa Margherita

Get ready to discover a new side to Namibia as you head West to the coastal city of Swakopmund, famed for its beautiful beaches and historic German colonial landmarks. Along the way, you'll pass through the Tsiseb Conservancy where you'll have plenty of opportunities to see more wildlife and enjoy views of the otherworldly mountain range during the four-hour journey across the park. 

Day 8-9
1 night stay at Villa Margherita

A perfect stopover during your safari, you can rest and rejuvenate at the charming Villa Margherita, a stylish and warm boutique hotel situated across 4 colonial buildings. Enjoy impeccable complimentary room service, a scrumptious personalised breakfast menu and a revitalizing massage before heading out for more adventures! 

Day 9

Established in 1892 by German colonialists as the main harbour for German-South West Africa, Swakopmund has preserved the remnants of its colonial past 116 years after the Germans departure. The result? A quintessentially German town against the stunning backdrop of Namibia's coast. Today a vibrant seaside resort, Swakopmund has much to offer both on land and off! During your stay be sure to explore the city's landmarks, visit the Swakopmund Museum and, if you're brave enough, skydive! 

Day 9
Road transfer from Villa Margherita to Kulala Desert Lodge

It's time to hit the road again and get ready for another change of scenery as you head further down South to the Kulala Desert Lodge. Along the way, you'll cover much of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, where you'll find untouched, clay-coloured dunes as far as your eyes can see. As you reach closer to your destination, keep an eye out for the sprawling majestic mountains of the Nakuluft Mountain Zebra Park - they're hard to miss! 

Day 9-11
2 nights stay at Wilderness Safaris Kulala Desert Lodge

Situated at the foothills of the Sossusvlei dunes, the Kulala Desert Lodge occupies a magnificent location with breathtaking panoramic views of the park's famed red dunes.

Day 10
Sossusvlei and Deadvlei

As you venture out into the Namib Desert with expert guides from the lodge, you'll soon find yourself in another world as you stand amidst the vast salt plains of Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. With the surrounding red dunes stunningly contrasted against the white clay and salt pans, this unique sight is made the even more magnificent by the remnants of the scorched trees that characterise the region. You may even have the chance to encounter some of the extraordinary wildlife who call this harsh environment home, such as gemsboks and ostriches.

Day 11
Road transfer from Kulala Desert Lodge to Wolwedans Dunes Camp

Your journey will continue to the South taking you into the NamibRand-Naturreservat, an 850,000-hectare nature reserve proclaimed to be Africa's first International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR), a distinction awarded to locations that offer the best star-gazing opportunities on Earth. 

Day 11-13
2 nights stay at Wolwedans Dunes Camp

Perfectly positioned in the heart of NamibRand-Naturreservat, Wolwedans Dunes Camp is an ecologically-sustainable resort designed to maximise access to the pristine desert scenery whilst minimising its environmental impact with the use of innovative building techniques.

Day 12
Namibrand Nature Reserve

Day 13
Road transfer from Wolwedans Dunes Camp to The Olive Exclusive

It's time to hit the Namibian roads one last time and embark on the six-hour journey back up North to your starting location in Windhoek; but the adventure isn't over yet! You'll be driving new routes to get up to Windhoek, passing through some of the most pristine landscapes of the country, so don't put away the camera quite just yet.
