Another late afternoon game drive promises extraordinary wildlife viewing, before returning to the lodge for a scrumptious dinner.

Day 9 & 10 - Aus & Kolmaskop

Klein-Aus Vista - Desert Horse Inn
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

Today we will have a fairly lengthy drive to the Klein Aus Vista. There is something extraordinarily special about the landscape around Klein-Aus Vista in the Sperrgebiet Rand park. It is where streaks of Namib sand fuse with the bleached grasses of the Pro-Namib in a sensuous slow dance of splendour. The Desert Horse Inn affords grand views of mountain scenery and desert plains. The Namib's, as the free horses of the Namib Desert are called, hold a powerful fascination.

Living on the barren plains around the Garub on the eastern frontier of the Namib Desert, their origin is shrouded in mystery, yet, despite the harsh, arid landscape, the wild horses of the Namib Desert have adapted and survived against all odds.Upon arrival, we will have some downtime before driving out to the Garub in order to familiarize ourselves with the wild horses of the Namib. Dinner tonight will be at our cozy lodge in Klein Aus Vista.

On day 10, This morning we will head to the town of Lüderitz, and also visiting Kolmanskop. Kolmanskop used to be a small railway station in 1908, when the railway between Lüderitz and Keetmanshoop was constructed. The station derived its name from a Nama man named Coleman, who got stuck at the site with his ox wagon and consequently died of thirst. It was in 1908 that a railway worker Zacharias Lewala found a shiny stone and took it to the chief railway foreman August Stauch. Stauch was a hobby mineralogist and had advised his workers to bring any unique stone they might find to him. He immediately assumed the find of Lewala to be a diamond, which was later confirmed, after the stone had been examined by his friend and future partner Söhnke Nissen, a mining engineer.

We will head to Kolmanskop in the morning before exploring Lüderitz. A late afternoon return to our lodge will offer some relaxation time before dinner.

Day 11 & 12 - Fish River Canyon

Canyon Lodge
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

The vast Fish River Region with its impressive landscapes is situated in the far south of Namibia and stretches from the South African border up to the area of Aus and further to Keetmanshoop in the south-eastern part of Namibia. Prominent to this area are the two vegetation zones, the Succulent and the Nama Karoo that belong to the semi deserts. Moreover, some of the region stretches into the Namib Desert. Many plants can be found in the region which have adapted to the harsh environment. The best known are the picturesque quiver trees, the euphorbias and the aloes.

Many animals also managed to survive in the conditions of this hostile environment like giraffe, mountain zebra, oryx, kudu, springbok, ostrich, leopard and the fascinating feral horses of the Namib. Tonight’s dinner will be at our lodge

 

On day 12, It is said to be the largest canyon in Africa, and arguably the second largest in the world after the Grand Canyon in USA. It features a gigantic gorge, in total about 160km (100miles) long, up to 27km (17miles) wide and in places almost 550m (1804ft) deep.

The Fish River is the longest interior river in Namibia. It cuts deep into the plateau, which is today dry, stony and sparsely covered with hardy drought-resistant vegetation. The river flows intermittently, usually flooding in late summer; the rest of the year it becomes a chain of long narrow pools. At the lower end of the Fish River Canyon, the hot springs resort of Ai-Ais is situated.

Today we head to the public viewpoints are near Hobas, a camp site 70km (43miles) north of Ai-Ais. This part of the canyon is part of the Ai-Ais/Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. The other 90km (56miles) of this canyon are privately owned. A lovely dinner will await you at our lodge! 

Day 13 - Kalahari Desert

Kalahari Anib Lodge
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

While Namibia is more famous for being home to the impressive dunes of the Namib Desert, its southeastern flanks are covered by another, equally remarkable desert: the Kalahari.

The Kalahari is not considered a ‘true’ desert in the traditional sense of the word. This terracotta-painted landscape is, instead a fossil desert. Its sands are the remnants of mountain ranges which have long since disappeared while its dry riverbeds hide sources of life-giving sustenance. Dispersed, are herds of oryx, springbok and ostrich which survive thanks to an existence of shepherd trees and thorny acacias of this harsh land. While rare, cheetah, lion and black-backed jackal, can be spotted here too.

Farm tours, game drives, hiking, guided San Bushman walks and cultural visits make the Kalahari a special destination, but the true appeal here lies in the Kalahari’s eerie silence and solitude. Our last dinner of the safari will be at our lodge!

Day 14 - Windhoek

Am Weinberg Boutique Hotel
Meals- Breakfast 

We have come to the end of our tour and make our way back to Windhoek today. All transport links from north to south and from east to west cross in Windhoek, serving as a hub for travellers. Windhoek is surrounded by mountain ranges, which are up to 2000m (6561ft) high and which strongly limit an expansion of the town.

Numerous buildings from the colonial time can be found in Windhoek today. It is also striking how clean the town is. The influence of the German colonial times can still be seen today: German Restaurants, several German street names, German beer, bread and sausages, especially the German carnival which is celebrated to a great extend!

We expect to arrive back in Windhoek in the late afternoon, and it will see the end of our splendid safari! A farewell dinner at a local restaurant with incredible city views has been reserved for you this evening!.
