The awe inspiring dunes of Sossusvlei are recreated each night as they gently drift across the plains of the Namib. A photographer’s dream and an inspiration to all. Nearby the Sossusvlei Wilderness camp is set in an extensive private reserve where each room is built into the mountain side with sweeping views of the Namib desert and dunes beyond.
Back to the aircraft to fly to Damaraland, a wilderness of valleys, sculptured hills and rocky river beds. The home to the rare desert elephant and rhino, as well as oryx, kudu and springbok.
Onto the Etosha Pans, Namibia’s top wildlife area. Ongava Lodge lies in a private reserve adjoining the park thus providing the best of both worlds - nightdrives and walks on the reserve as well as daily game drives in the national park.
The Skeleton Coast will surely be the highlight of this adventure safari. Untouched by modern man, a more dramatic and remote area would be hard to imagine. The coast is battered by the Atlantic with ship wrecks, seal colonies, ancient bushman sites while the inland valleys are a haven for wildlife in this harshland.

When to travel
All year round destination, although the best time to visit Namibia is from May to September as the temperature is tolerably cool, especially at night. The optimum game viewing times are between June and November. The land will have dried out meaning animals must again come to waterholes to drink. Summer (November to April) also known as the rainy season is best time to travel to Namibia for bird watching as migratory birds (both intra-African and Palaearctic) flock into the park's many habitats after the summer rains.

Little Kulala is a fair way off the beaten track in the Kulala Wilderness Reserve, close to the NamibRand region of southern Namibia. Set amongst ancient camel thorn trees on the dry Auab riverbed. From there onto Damaraland Camp, located in the Huab River Valley, arguably the most pristine wilderness area in Namibia, 90km from Torra Bay in the Torra Conservancy. The Ongava Tented Camp is in the Ongave Private Reserve of northern Namibia, close to the Etosha Park. Ongava Game Reserve is on the southern boundary of the Etosha National Park. Your final stay is in one of the planet's most inhospitable yet hauntingly beautiful places, the Skeleton Coast Camp lies within the Skeleton Coast Park. Skeleton Coast Camp is built on an island in the dry Khumib riverbed, about 20km inland from the coastline.
How to get there
13-hour international flight to Windhoek Airport, followed by a 1-hour by light aircraft flight to the Geluk airstrip, 25km from the camp. Here you will be met and its then a 15-minute drive to Little Kulala.
