QUAD BIKES & HIMBA TRIBE

Discover the Namib, the world’s oldest desert, on quad bikes. Follow a guide across the Sossusvlei’s striking burnt orange dunes discovering the landscape’s hidden secrets.

Encounter the unique culture of the semi-nomadic Himba people. In a fascinating exchange, you’ll learn about their way of life in the stark Kaokoland they call home.

SKELETON COAST & ELEPHANTS

Take a scenic flight over the shipwrecks and sand dunes of the Skeleton Coast. Land beside those ill-fated vessels to explore this famously hostile coastline on the ground.

You’ll take a boat ride on the Kunene River next, spotting exotic birds and submerged crocodiles before arriving at a stunning location for a gourmet lunch set up in advance of your arrival.

Seek the stately desert elephants on a guide-led safari through the colorful arid wilderness. Your knowledgeable guide will lead you to these arresting pachyderms, while also seeing rhinos, zebra, and giraffes along the way.

BUSHMEN & ETOSHA SAFARI

Arrive in Tsumkwe for cultural immersion with the San Bushmen. Greeted by the tribal leaders, you’ll be shown to your camp created exclusively for your stay. The camp is relatively basic, however, the focus here is the experience.

A translator will be on hand at all times, and a private chef. Discover the bushcraft of this fascinating community as you join them in foraging for edible plants, tracking animals, and discovering water beneath the unpromisingly sandy ground.

On a private boat, you’ll journey to Cape Cross to see its sea of seals at this 10,000-strong gathering. At lunch, disembark into the translucent shallows and make your way up the beach for a gourmet lunch of lobster and local cuisine.

Your trip’s finale is in the Etosha National Park, setting out on a safari in search of its endangered black rhinos and elusive cheetahs. Step in the tracks of animals to find your way to stunning encounters in this mesmerizing landscape. As the stars blanket the sky, embark on a game drive to discover the park’s nocturnal world—as vibrant as when the sun is up.
