Etosha, Himba Tribes, Sossusvlei Dunes, and a Desert Hike

Overview

Otherworldly landscapes surround you in Namibia, where a sea of sand mountains turns red at sunrise, the lone tracks of desert elephants trace across salt pans, and 6,000-year-old rock carvings adorn flat-topped sandstone peaks. Under the deep blue skies of this photogenic land, you’ll track cheetahs and leopards, search for the “Big Five” in Etosha’s wild western reaches, climb the massive dunes of the Namib Desert, and meet traditional Himba nomads. For a grand finale to your diverse adventure, you'll hike across the wilds of NamibRand Nature Reserve amid majestic mountain ranges, orange dunes, and wondrous desert silence. Throughout our adventure, our superbly located wilderness camps and lodges put you in the heart of this celebrated landscape.
