Travel that's shaped around you

We know that travel has the most meaning when it's created individually for you. Our specialists will only start designing your trip once they understand exactly what you want it to be. So, consider this idea simply as inspiration for your own experience.

Itinerary idea in detail

Includes international flights from a choice of UK airports, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

  • Today you begin your journey by boarding your international outbound flight to Windhoek.

  • On arrival at Windhoek Airport you will be met and escorted to your light aircraft which will fly you south to the dunes of Sossusvlei where you will be staying in the private Kulala Concession.

  • Head into the dunes early this morning before the heat really begins to increase. The guided activities will take you in at first light so you will be some of the first people in the area. Both Deadvlei and Sossusvlei are worth visiting as they offer very different perspectives of this region. If you have the energy, clamber up one of the dunes for great views.

  • This morning you will be taken back to the airstrip where Schoemans will pick you up for the spectacular flight up to Swakopmund and then into to the Skeleton Coast. Along the way you will stop for lunch along the beach and enjoy flights over the Ugab formations as well taking some time to walk around and enjoy the scenery.

  • Today you take a scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast as well as the roaring dunes before heading to Leylandsdrift Camp.

  • Enjoy a nature drive looking for desert-adapted elephant, visit the Himba people and fly up north to explore the Serra Caféma area and the Kunene River.

  • Enjoy a boat trip down the Kunene River and climb some small peaks on the Angola side. After lunch you will depart by light aircraft to Ongava Lodge. This is a beautiful property set in a private concession on the edge of Etosha in the Ongava Reserve. The area consistently provides some of the best wildlife sightings in the area.

  • There are a number of activities that you can do from Ongava Lodge. These include excursions into Etosha and on the Ongava Reserve, guided walks and also the opportunity to track rhino on foot. It really is an exhilarating feeling as you quietly approach these amazing animals!

  • Enjoy another day of safari activities from Ongava Lodge.

  • After a final game drive this morning you will be flown back to Windhoek where your driver will collect you and take you to your guesthouse to relax for the evening.

  • After breakfast you will be picked up by your driver and taken to the airport.

  • Arrive home today to complete your journey.
