Activities are conducted in 4x4 vehicles and include a safari down to the very end of the Tsauchab River and to the heart of Sossusvlei for wonderful dune scenes.

Optional early morning ballooning can be arranged at extra cost. (This must be booked in advance). Late afternoons are time to explore the reserve around the camp.

Days 3 and 4 :

The Skeleton Coast, Swakopmund and Damaraland - Damaraland Camp


Depart by light aircraft and fly over the dunes of the Namib and Sossusvlei to gain a different perspective of the area from the air. Continue westwards to Meob Bay on the Atlantic Ocean and then fly up the Skeleton Coast.

The flight offers spectacular desert and Skeleton Coast scenery, where the dunes and the desert meet the Atlantic Ocean.

The flight is over the site of the Eduard Bolen shipwreck, past Conception Bay and the wreck site of the Shaunee, around Sandwich Harbor and its famous lagoon, the flamingoes at Walvis Bay and on to Swakopmund.

Upon arrival you will be met and transferred to Walvis Bay for a wonderful boat trip out to sea where there are frequently good sightings of dolphins, seals and sometimes even penguins and whales.

In the afternoon depart from Swakopmund, for a scenic flight further up the Skeleton Coast, and past the Cape Cross Seal Colony before turning east and fly up the Huab River to Damaraland Camp for two nights.

Highlights of the stay of Damaraland Camp are nature excursions into the rocky desert in search of the rare and endangered desert Elephant and Rhino.

This is an area where the chances of encountering the desert Elephants are high.

In the afternoon and evening we have the opportunity to enjoy walks, hides and night drives within the private Ongava Reserve, activities not possible within Etosha. Lion, Leopard, Elephant White Rhino and Black Rhino as well as all the plains game can be seen here. Tracking Rhino on foot is one of Ongava's highlights.
