Your Namibia safari will begin by heading to the Namib Desert; a great sand sea in Sossusvlei. The only true African desert south of the equator. Then you’ll fly high along the Skeleton Coast to Swakopmund, a town which seems to have landed here. Incongruous in its setting, an isolated coastal town. Next stop, the gemstone beaches of Mowe Bay before you have a complete change of gear: its Etosha time. Wildlife and game viewing galore. Grab your khakis, camera and binoculars.
Depart from Windhoek and head south through desert shrub savannah to a lodge / guest farm close to the Kalahari Desert for the first evening. A beautiful site where the bungalows are built on top of the dunes. Overnight at Auob Lodge. Dinner and breakfast is included.
After breakfast, travel west via Malthohe to the Namib Desert for the next two nights. A late afternoon nature drive or walk is recommended, especially at sunset. Overnight at Namib Desert Lodge. Dinner and breakfast is included.
A whole day is set aside in this beautiful area with an early morning rise to drive to the beautiful Sossusvlei area where most of the morning will be spent on dune climbing, photography and to visit the amazing Dead Pan. A stunning area especially in the early morning. Overnight accommodation at Namib Desert Lodge. Breakfast and Dinner is included.
Today head west to the gravel plains of the Namib to visit the amazing prehistoric Welwitschia plants and Moonlandscape before arriving at the German colonial style town of Swakopmund. The first morning is set aside for an excursion to the Walvis Bay lagoon where a wide range of birds such as flamingoes, pelicans and waders can be seen. The afternoon is free to spend in Swakopmund.
Optional extra activities consist of scenic flights over the Skeleton coast, a Dolphin boat cruise at Walvis Bay, dune 4x4 quad biking, etc. Accommodation is at the Europahop. Breakfast will be included.
Head north along the Skeleton Coast to the breeding Seal colony (80000 - 10 0000) at Cape Cross, stop over at the Lichen Fields as well as a salt pan. From here, head inland to the "pro-Namib" to visit the Spitzkoppe granite hills before heading on to the Erongo Mountains. Overnight at Ai Aiba Lodge. Breakfast and Dinner is included.
From here, travel east to the central Namib to visit the beautiful Spitzkoppe Granite outcrops close to Usakos before heading on to Okahandja and the wood carvers market. Accommodation is at the Okahandja Lodge. Dinner and Breakfast is included.
After breakfast travel on to Windhoek visiting the wood carvers market along the way.

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.
