NAMIBIA VISIONS FLY-IN SAFARI

Please note: There are set departures for this Namibia fly-in safari although this does not rule out a 'private' safari.

Detailed Itinerary:

DAY 1: Windhoek to Etosha (Onguma Tented Camp)

Soon after arrival, you will be flown directly to Etosha National Park where you will be spending the next two days at the Onguma Tented Camp on the eastern outskirts of the park.

The Onguma Reserve covers an area of 20,000ha and incorporates ecological substrata such as savannah, bushveld, omuramba and dry pan. Age-old and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo wander through Onguma's three dry riverbeds. Plains game roam freely on the reserve and predators although not easy to spot are nevertheless common residents of the area. During the summer months it becomes a bird-watchers paradise with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains.

DAY 2: Etosha National Park (Onguma Tented Camp)

After a leisurely breakfast, enjoy a guided drive into the Etosha National Park for a full day of game viewing.

The Etosha National Park consists of 22,270 sqm of saline desert, savannah and woodlands, and is one of the largest parks in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5,000 sqm. Of the 114 mammal species found in the park, several are rare and endangered, such as the Black Rhino and Black-Faced Impala. The former is endemic to north-western Namibia and South-western Angola.

Etosha's current population of approximately 300 black rhinos represents one of the few growing populations in the world. Etosha's elephants are reputed to be of the largest in Africa, the tallest ones measuring up to 4m at the shoulder.

Mowani is taken from the word Miwane, meaning 'Place of God' and it is here, that you will find the true meaning of peace and tranquillity. Mowani Mountain Camp consists of 12 luxury tents, all with en-suite facilities, decorated beautifully in East African style. The luxury tents are a great source of relaxation.
