NAMIBRAND FLY-IN SAFARI

Detailed Itinerary:

DAY 1: Windhoek / NamibRand (Sossusvlei Desert Lodge)

After your arrival in Windhoek, you will be driven to your scheduled Dune Hopper flight to the Sossusvlei area departing 10h45 with an approximate arrival time at 12h00.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is situated in the northern foothills of the vast, privately owned NamibRand Nature Reserve. From dawn to dusk, it's an ever-changing landscape of light and shadows with vast, untrammelled vistas. Clouds and mirages endlessly unfold in a seductive, silent dance of earth and sky as the Namib envelops you in her stillness. The reserve's totally private dunes, mountains, and pristine spaces are experienced by a maximum of 20 lodge residents. Ten stone and glass desert suites combine unprecedented sophistication with the stark beauty of the desert landscape.

Cradled against ancient mountains, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge's decor embraces muted hues of ochre, umber and ivory. It is an ideal retreat from which to explore this rolling sand sea.

DAYS 3 & 4: NamibRand Nature Reserve (Wolwedans Dunes Lodge)

Early wake up call for your morning ballooning safari (pick up time will be confirmed to you the previous evening).

Back at the lodge you will be met by a Wolwedans representative who will transfer you to the Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, in time for lunch.

The Wolwedans Dunes Lodge aims at providing a unique experience close to nature, yet without compromising any comfort and style. The entire lodge is constructed on wooden platforms and overlooks the panoramic vistas in the 185 000 NamibRand Nature Reserve in all directions, capturing the desert in an intimate and memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden poles and large canvas blinds that open up to the desert beyond. A careful selection of furniture, light-coloured linen as well as the selection of accessories gives the Dunes Lodge a distinct natural charm.

The main area sports a dining and lounge tent, a breakfast deck and open fire place. Close by is an awesome sundowner spot overlooking the vast beauty of the reserve.
