  • Slow down and enjoy the relaxed German-Namibian atmosphere of Swakopmund, a beachside town amid the dramatic breakers of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Climb the iconic Dune 45 to admire views of the sand dunes of the Sossusvlei, explore the picturesque and eerie Deadvlei Salt Pans and Sesriem Canyon, and enjoy an Exclusive Experience nature drive through Sesriem’s desert.
  • Soak in views of the ethereal desert landscape from your Feature Stay lodge in the Naukluft Mountains, with chalets inspired by nomadic desert huts, then enjoy a guided 4x4 nature drive in the surrounding area finished with drinks at sunset.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Helping Rhinos. Donations support their all-female ranger program in South Africa, which specialises in fighting wildlife crimes and protecting rhinos, and other critically endangered animals, from poachers.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This itinerary features some long travel days, which can be exacerbated by bumpy African roads. Please review the approximate durations of travel listed throughout the itinerary.
  • As the early bird catches the worm, the early camper sights the animals. There will be many early starts either to make use of the better safari time or to beat the morning traffic on long travel days.

Wonderful trip which was well organised and included a good variety of activities. Our leader was excellent, as was our driver.

Fabulous trip. The premium tag was worth it for the Desert Hills Lodge hotel alone! Probably the best hotel we have ever stayed at and did not disappoint. The land cruiser made the bumpy roads very comfortable compared to other modes of transport, so another reason to choose premium if you are undecided. Relaxed itinerary which was perfect for us. Not too much rushing around and you didn’t feel drained from being on the go all the time especially in the heat! Take plenty of layers for Swakopmund which is around 15 degrees compared to up to 40 degrees everywhere else!

Namibia is a great place to visit. This trip is not cheap but gives excellent value with great accomodation and activities.

I thoroughly enjoyed this tour! The itinerary was excellent and visited the sites in Namibia, and had lots of 2 night stays (this is important when there are long travel days). The lodges and hotels were all interesting and most were high quality. I would recommend organising your own airport transfer rather than rely on Intrepid to do this (the only negative of my trip was the missing transfer).

Great trip....the red Namibian dunes, the Deadvlei and the flamingoes of Walvis Bay are my personal favourites! Some fantastic Lodges to stay in...especially the architecture of the Desert Hills Lodge! Overall the food was good despite me being a lactose intolerant vegetarian! If you eat meat you will be in heaven in Namibia!
