View and take photos of the Kalahari Desert, the majestic Fish River Canyon and the world's highest sand dunes in the Namib Desert at Sossusvlei. Sossusvlei is a clay pan surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world.
Observe the flora and fauna that inhabits this region. Climbing one of the dunes affords the energetic traveller with an unforgettable experience of endless vistas across a sea of apricot-coloured sand.
Travel south through the rugged mountain ranges surrounding the capital. Your Namibia tour takes you to the vegetated red dunes of the Kalahari Desert which differs from the Namib.
The dunes are greener and less stark, having the ability to support more fauna and flora. In the afternoon you will be able to partake in an optional sundowner drive and farm drive. Overnight at Kalahari Anib Lodge. Breakfast is included.
A full day's journey takes you south through the desert-dominated landscapes to a picturesque Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop. This prehistoric tree reaches skyward with graphically forked branches, their trunks peel and form intricate patterns as the tree matures, these are rewarding subjects to photograph.
Giant's Playground is an impressive jumble of massive boulders, a virtual maze where time can be spent wandering through the extensive rocky labyrinth. Enjoy an optional nature and sundowner drive. Overnight in Canon Village. Breakfast is included.
You start the day with a short visit to the Fish River Canyon, from here you will proceed to the small historic village of Aus and travel through the vast barren expanse to Luderitz situated on the southern Atlantic coast.
The town serves as a good base from which to view colonies of aquatic birds, seals and penguins. An excursion will be undertaken to view Diaz Cross. Overnight at Hotel Zum Sperrgebiet. Breakfast is included.
Travel to the famous ghost town of Kolmanskop during your Namibia tour. In 1908 a railway worker found a sparkling stone amongst the sand he was shovelling away from the railway line.
This resulted in a Diamond Rush, as it soon became a bustling little centre with all the amenities of a European town. Within a span of 50 years, Kolmanskop had lived, flourished and died! Heading inland you will proceed via the pro-Namib to your overnight establishment, Hammerstein Lodge. Breakfast is included.
An early start is important, as this is not only the coolest part of the day but it's the best for photography. Your journey takes you to the famous Sossusvlei, a clay pan surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world.
Time will be taken to explore the impressive conglomerate gorges of the Sesriem Canyon, with its rock pools fed by the Tsauchab. You will overnight at Namib Desert Lodge. Breakfast is included.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
