At a Glance

This one-of-a-kind safari uses the light aircraft as your ‘safari vehicle’ to give bird’s eye views of this spectacular region. Aptly named for the eerie skeletons of shipwrecks strewn along its wild and desolate beaches, the Skeleton Coast is an area of breathtaking beauty and remote wilderness areas. Take in the sweeping stretches of mist-shrouded coastline, the diverse and ever-evolving geological formations, and the natural habitats of desert-dwelling animals, such as the desert-adapted elephant and endangered black rhino – all from the air. Starting Price US$ 4,950 p.p.*

  • Day 5 Damaraland

    After an early breakfast you will be treated to an exciting 4×4 excursion along the ephemeral Aba Huab River valley to explore this remarkable region and to search for game, especially the elusive desert adapted elephants if they are in the area. Damaraland is home to a variety of desert adapted wildlife and hidden desert treasures. You will normally then return to camp for lunch and a well-deserved siesta. Your guide will arrange to fit in a visit to Twyfelfontein and other nearby attractions at a suitable time in the afternoon if this appeals and you haven’t already been there the previous day, or you can go out with your guide and take a walk into the local area around Camp. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can stay in to relax and enjoy some well-deserved leisure time in the comforts of the camp.

  • Day 6 Damaraland to Etosha National Park

    This morning you will have an early departure from Doro Nawas as you make your way north deeper into the heart of Damaraland. En route you will visit an extremely remote Himba village, only known to a few people. Your guide’s presence and contacts with the local community will ensure you will be welcomed as a ‘friend of a friend’ and that you will be able to spend considerable time there learning about these fascinating nomadic pastoralists. There has been virtually no modern influence on these communities, which makes for a fascinating cultural exchange.

    You will then continue on your journey, having a picnic lunch en route, and you will arrive at the Okaukuejo Resort, located inside the Etosha National Park, in the late afternoon. This rest camp’s focus is the popular floodlit waterhole, where guests can easily linger all day and watch the wildlife come and go.  The accommodation, hosting and food is reasonably adequate for this rustic rest camp; the focus of this camp is its prime location being situation inside the park and thus you can dedicate as much time as possible on game drives within the Etosha National Park, subject to park regulations.

  • Day 7 Etosha National Park

    Today you will be treated to an exciting morning guided game drive into the Etosha National Park, to see more of the wide variety of game and bird species that are to be found there. There is then time to relax by the refreshing swimming pool before you head out again for an afternoon game drive before exiting the park before sunset.
    Alternatively, you can opt to spend the whole day out in the park and either take lunch by one of the other rest camps in the area, such as Halali, or have a picnic while watching game at a particularly productive waterhole in the area. Once you are back, the rest of the evening can be spent game viewing at the camp’s floodlit waterhole while enjoying dinner, and afterwards.
