Desert Dune Safari

Desert Dune Safari

Along with the Diverse Namibia Safari, the Desert Dune Safari traverses unique highlights of Namibian ecotourism. This ten-day safari visits an excellent variety of Namibian sites, from Sossusvlei’s red dunes to the resort town of Swakopmund on the Atlantic to Namibia's legendary Skeleton Coast to the rocky desert of Damaraland. This variety of locales combines to create a unique Namibian experience.

Kulala Desert Lodge serves as the base camp for the first two days of the safari. In the heart of the Namib Desert, activities center around the nearby Sossusvlei, a clay pan fringed by enormous sand dunes that are famous for glowing red in the early morning light. For days three and four, from the luxurious accommodations of the internationally renowned Hansa Hotel, embark on activities emphasizing marine wildlife encounters, including a dolphin and seal cruise, oyster cultivation, and whale spotting (in the appropriate season, of course).

Drive up the Skeleton Coast, overnighting at Terrace Bay Lodge before spending two nights at the brand new Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp. The final two nights are spent at Desert Rhino Camp in the rocky desert of Damaraland. Most notable of the desert’s surprising concentration of wildlife are the desert elephant and black rhino, but there are also regular sightings of Hartmann’s mountain zebra, kudu, giraffe, gemsbok, and springbok.
