Natural Wonders Namibia
Namib Rand Reserve
Etosha National Park
WINDHOEK – 1 NIGHT
Windhoek – the heart of Namibia – is a friendly and welcoming place and can easily be explored on foot. Visit the various places of interest such as the Museum, the National Art Gallery, the “Tintenpalast”, the National Botanical Research Institute (and its gardens) and the Zoo Gardens. Windhoek offers an harmonious blend of African and European cultures. You will be surprised how clean it is. It offers all modern amenities that conform to some of the world’s highest standards.
NAMIB RAND RESERVE – 2 NIGHTS
The Namib Rand Reserve represents all facets of the Namib Desert – golden grass savannah, red sand dunes and majestic mountain ranges. The Wolwedans Dunes Lodge is perched on top of a dune plateau and from your private veranda you have panoramic views in all directions onto this magical landscape. To get a better understanding of the dimensions of the Namib Rand Reserve and experience the diversity in landscape, a day drive is a truly memorable excursion; depart after breakfast, enjoy your delicious picnic lunch in the middle of nowhere and return to camp in the later afternoon, where you can enjoy the sunset with a G+T.
SWAKOPMUND – 1 NIGHT
We love Swakopmund! It has an ambience of a small German village combined with palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate and decent beaches. Stroll around town and discover its many historic sites: the Hohenzollern Building, the Marine memorial, the War memorial in memory of those killed in World War 2. Princess Rupprecht House originally a military hospital is now a private guest house and worth a visit. Also check out the State House (Kaiserliches Bezirksgericht) and the Swakop Lighthouse which has been fully functional since 1902. If this is too quiet for you, then go sand boarding, quad biking, dune carting, parachuting or hot air ballooning, shark fishing, deep-sea fishing or beach angling. The choice is yours.
DAMARALAND – 2 NIGHTS
Damaraland is home to several natural wonders. There is Twyfelfontein with its wealth of ancient rock art and the wonders of the Organ Pipes. The Desert Elephants that so perfectly adapt to the desert climate and last but not least the rugged and untamed scenery itself. Spend a day foraging, walking and learning from the San bushmen tribe. Explore Damaraland on a guided nature walk to see the smaller details of the bush up close and personal. After a fascinating day, you can relax by the pool or on your private deck. This is also a wonderful way to marvel at the natural wonders.
SKELETON COAST – 2 NIGHTS
One of the must see natural wonders is the Skeleton Coast. Bleak. Beautiful. Remote. These are the best words to describe the iconic Skeleton Coast. The coast is scattered with whalebones and crumbling shipwrecks. Only 800 people a year are allowed to visit this remote area of the Kaokoveld. It can be reached via light aircraft only. Take a stroll through Hoanib’s spectacular moon-like landscape or do a full-day excursion to the Skeleton Coast. This fascinating 4×4 trip takes you through the wilderness of the Hoanib River and floodplain, the dune fields and Klein Oasis. If the weather is good, a scenic flight back to camp rounds up this spectacular adventure as you can marvel and the natural wonders of Namibia from above.
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK – 2 NIGHTS
Onguma means ‘the place you don’t want to leave’ in the local Herero language. And we can understand why… the surrounding nature invites you to immerse yourself in long lazy afternoons spent relaxing on the sofas in the lounge watching the animals go by. If the heat gets too much, gently stroll to the rim flow pool overlooking the plains and indulge in fine dining complimented by the daily happenings around the water hole, only 60 meters away. Of course, you should go on a game drive through Etosha National Park home to large herds of zebra and springbok, Oryx as well as elephants and lions.
