Itinerary details



Once you've arrived at Windhoek International Airport, you'll then share an 'Out of Africa' experience as you take a light aircraft to Etosha National Park. As you fly you'll take in the awe-inspiring salt pan that dominates Etosha National Park, and catch a glimpse of what is the most abundant game in the country, before touching down at Onguma. Otherwise known at 'The Fort', this lodge is a stunning and contemporary desert hideaway, with it's own viewing-tower to survey the stark landscape, and gorgeous suites which are spaced apart so that they feel wonderfully isolated. Right opposite is a large watering hole, so you'll awake to the sight of zebra, giraffe, elephant, and lion coming to drink and bathe, before heading out to spot Etosha's rare black rhino on exhilarating game drives and guided walks.

Okahirongo River Camp


Now for a total change of scenery, as you’re flown into the scarcely explored north west of Namibia, where you’ll spend two nights alongside the Kunene River at Okahirongo River Camp. Perched high on the rugged hills which overlook the Otupambua Rapids, this lodge is an invigorating and unique oasis: perfectly situated to enjoy the dramatic landscapes of this ultra remote region. Awaking early, you’ll share the extraordinary sun-rise which washes the Marienfluss Valley with reds, purples, and pinks. After this, you’ll enjoy exhilarating drives into the boulder-strewn mountains; take boat-trips down the river to see amazing birdlife, crocodile, and desert plants, before cooling off in one of the mountain rock-pools.

Okahirongo Elephant Lodge


After a sumptuous breakfast, you’ll fly deeper into the Marienfluss Valley where you’ll stay at one of the most remote camps in Namibia. In contrast to your previous camp, which was surrounded by babbling rivers and dramatic hills, the sister property Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is right in the Marienfluss Valley itself, amidst the infinite plains and sublime sense of stillness. Step out of your cool Himba-inspired suite with its domed mud roof, and take a surreal al fresco shower before heading out to explore this desolately beautiful region. This will involve guided walks to see the weird ‘fairy circles’ that are scorched onto the plains, and twice daily game drives in search of the rare desert elephant, black rhino, giraffe, and lion. As well as this, you’ll visit one of the nearby Himba villages and learn about this semi-nomadic community’s fascinating customs.

You’ll now fly into the boulder kingdom of Damaraland, which lies beneath the Tolkien-like granite peaks of Spitz-koppe and Namibia’s highest mountain, the Brandberg. Blending in amongst the enormous red-tinged boulders, Mowani Mountain Camp looks as though it could have been built by some seriously stylish cave-men, and is a place to get in touch with your primitive side amongst this rough and ready terrain. In the mornings you can take a dip in the pool, which is lodged between boulders, and look out for rock hyraxes as they scamper amongst the acacias. You can then enjoy an active day of rock-climbing, mountain biking, visits to the ancient rock paintings of Twyfelfontein, and the eerie Petrified Forest, before snuggling around the fire back at camp.

Wolwedans Dune Camp


Heading south, you’ll fly to the breezy coastal town of Swakopmund where you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch of oysters, before flying on to Wolwedans Dunes Lodge in the heart of the NamibRand Nature Reserve. The most luxurious and exclusive lodge in Namibia, Wolwedans offers a mesmerising finale to your luxury honeymoon, with canvas walls that open up completely on the rippling canvas plains. Heading out on game drives against a contrasting backdrop of mountains and dunes, this is your chance to capture those unforgettable honeymoon photos; learn about the ancient hunting spots of Bushmen, and small desert-adapted creatures, all topped off with a luxury picnic and sundowners in the dunes.
