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

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival into Windhoek you will be greeted by a driver who will transfer you to your guesthouse in Windhoek. Your car will be dropped off direct to your guest house where a representative will also meet you with a welcome pack, cool box, phone and driving directions as well as answer any questions. The rest of the afternoon is then yours at leisure to relax.

  • Leaving Windhoek today, start your journey south, driving toward the Southern Kalahari where you will spend the night.

  • Today, after breakfast, drive to Fish River Canyon. Arriving at the lodge some time this afternoon you will have the chance to enjoy a sundowner drive or perhaps some walking in the area.

  • Today you will have a full day to explore the dramatic Fish River Canyon. You may like to arrange some hiking down into the canyon with a guide.

  • From Fish River Canyon you will drive to the small town of Aus. Close by to your lodge are the wild horses the area is famous for.

  • Today you can explore Lüderitz and enjoy a tour around the old mining town of Kolmanskop. This is a great area for photography — the houses are the last remaining memory of 'Millionaires Avenue' which are now derelict and filled with sand.

  • You will head north toward the Namib Desert today. On your way to the lodge you will pass through the spectacular NamibRand Nature Reserve where the dunes change from light yellow to rich red.

  • Today you can visit the giant dunes at Sossusvlei and explore the area on foot. Excursions can be arranged through the lodge, or you can drive yourselves to the dunes and then take a shuttle for the remaining distance on the sand.

  • Drive from Sossusvlei north to the Naukluft Mountains. Here you will be able to relax and enjoy some of the self-guided hiking trails in the mountains.

  • A day to relax and explore the Naukluft Mountains.

  • You will drive from the Naukluft Mountains back to Windhoek today to meet your onward flights.
