DAY 1 | Date to be updated
📍 Desert Homestead Lodge
SOSOUS VLEI & DEAD VLEI
No trip to Namibia is complete without setting foot in the Namib desert. This sea of sand stretches for more than 2000km along the Atlantic coast of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. Deadvlei in the Sossusvlei area is without a doubt the most iconic and accessible place to visit in this starkly beautiful region.
The name “Sossusvlei” roughly translates into “dead-end marsh". A vlei is a marsh in Afrikaans. This is the place where sand dunes come together and prevent the Tsauchab River to flow any further, in the dry Namib Desert the River however seldom flows this far resulting in a dry pan most years.
Sossusvlei is a huge area in the park that includes iconic locations such as Dune 45, Deadvlei, Big Daddy, and Sesriem Canyon; it is one of Namibia's most popular visitor attractions. Big Daddy is the park's tallest dune.
The park's vast red sand dunes have always been on my bucket list of places to see in the globe, and the spectacular scenery did not disappoint! Sossusvlei is a vast white salt and clay pan surrounded by massive red sand dunes that is found in Namibia.
An absolute dream to visit with a camera, the incredible scenery makes anyone look like a professional photographer!
DESERT HOMESTEAD LODGE
Nestled against the west side of the Namib Mountains, guests can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view over the vast open plains. The lodge offers 11 individual thatch roofed comfortable and cozy chalets and an exclusive suite. The unique location in the vastness of the nature reserve offers complete peace and tranquillity.
On the edge of the Namib, the oldest desert in the world, wildlife around the camp is fascinating in its adaptation to the harsh conditions. Sparse, yet thrilling to see, are springbok, gemsbok, ostrich, bat-eared fox, the rarely seen aardwolf and many small faunas. Excursions to the incredible dunes of Sosusvlei are a must. Explore the wonders of Sosusvlei from the luxury of a safari vehicle!

📍 Villa Margherita
Fly north west towards the coast line and some shipwrecks to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Swakopmund is a quaint little town sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert and has its own authentic colonial charm. From the rugged, desolate beauty of the desert, to the historical grace of its buildings, a visit to the Skeleton Coast is a unique experience.
Travelers have long mystified the Skeleton Coast with its intriguing stories of shipwrecks, desolate dunes and beach roaming carnivores. But due to its harsh environment and long history under varying control and protection, few people have had the opportunity to experience this fascinating corner of the world. With a new eco-tourism venture, the northern sector of the Skeleton Coast is becoming more accessible to the high scale adventure.
Ideally located in the heart of Swakopmund! Based on the original building, this colonial house was constructed between 1908 and 1913, the elegant Villa was completely refurbished for opening in 2008.
Accommodation comprises of 8 suites and bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom facilities. Some of these have a private lounge area, but all offer guests that intimacy and privacy they are seeking on a getaway trip! In each room you will find a safe, a hairdryer, plus everything you need to make a strong coffee first thing or a cup of tea to soothe the soul when you return at night.
In the communal living room there is a small library and fireplace, lovely for resting up with a book and keeping warm during the cooler days and as night draws in after a day out and about. A restaurant, which must be pre-booked, serves evening meals, and there is also a quaint garden with decking, beautiful flowers adorning the scene. In summer it is here where breakfast is served and it makes for a wonderful and peaceful start to the day!
As a guest you are entitled to use the efficient laundry service for fresh clothes during your stay – and if you fancy a bit of pampering, why not take advantage of the professional massage?

📍 Mushara Bush Camp
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Etosha National Park is home to four of the Big 5. Elephants and lions are common in the park, while the elusive leopard hides in the densely vegetated areas. However, one of the best reasons to visit Etosha is its healthy population of black rhinoceros. This archaic beast is endangered and the waterholes are probably among the best places in the world to see this precious animal.
Believed to have originated over 12 million years ago as a shallow lake, Etosha National Park is said to have the tallest Elephants in Africa, (up to 12 feet the shoulder), Etosha is recognized as being one of the last wild sanctuaries of the endangered Black Rhino.
Home to 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and, surprisingly, one species of fish. Largely flat with vast grasslands surrounding its famous Etosha Pan. The bush is scanty and the animals that call this area home have adapted to these arid conditions. Most of the year, they have to rely on the numerous waterholes (some natural, some man-made) that are dotted throughout this vast reserve.
Twice daily game drives!
The park is home to 114 species of mammals! The large mammals include elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard, rhino, wildebeest, hyena, springbok, cheetah, mountain and plains zebra, kudu, gemsbok and eland. Among the smaller species you will find warthog, jackal, bat-eared fox, honey badger and ground squirrels.
MUSHARA BUSH CAMP
The Camp is situated a mere 10 kilometres from the Von Lindquist gate of the world famous Etosha National Park. Offering a down-to-earth tented bush camp experience which is well suited as an exceptional affordable base for independent travellers and families exploring the magical Etosha National Park. .
