Trip Itinerary

DAY #1 - Windhoek, Namibia
You will arrive at Little Kulala. Inspired by Dead Vlei, the design of the 11 climate-controlled, thatched units, each with a private plunge pool, merges seamlessly into the timeless desert setting. Each unit has a Star Bed on the deck for romantic star gazing.
Jump right into the action with a nature drive or eco-sensitive guided quad-bike ride through the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve which allows you to take in the incredible views and denizens of the desert, including the likes of oryx, springbok and bat-eared fox, as well as fascinating avian desert specials such as the endemic dune lark.
DAY #2 - Sossusvlei, Namibia
You will start the day with a balloon flight over the Kulala Wilderness Reserve. This offers a truly memorable desert experience soaring above the magnificent dunes, with a Champagne breakfast to look forward to at the landing site. This activity is at additional cost and is closed on 25 December, 1 January and from 15 January to 15 February.
Walking trails focus on total immersion in this remote area, including a fascinating and surprisingly diverse array of insects, reptiles and rodents. The Tsauchab River Trail provides a revealing stroll along a productive dry riverbed. In the evening, take part in a fascinating Scorpion night walk! After dark, another realm of the Namib awakes. Night walks reveal some captivating creatures, such as dancing white lady spiders and numerous scorpion species, some of which fluoresce under UV light.
DAY #3 - Sossusvlei, Namibia
You will visit Sesriem Canyon. This fascinating geographical formation is the result of millions of years of water carving its way across the topography. At three kilometres long, the views from the top of Sesriem Canyon are breathtaking while walks through the gorge reveal distinct geographical layers which were laid down over aeons.
After an action packed three days, you will be transferred back to Windhoek for onward travel plans.

The Wilderness Safari camps were excellent, each offering unique attributes. Staff at Qorokwe, Little Vumbura and Kings Pool were outstanding and service was impeccable. Customer service employees in the United States could learn a lot from the Wilderness Safari staffs in Botswana.
