14 Day Namibia Dunes & Damaraland
A desert dunescape more reminiscent of the surface of Mars than anywhere on Earth. A South Atlantic sea breeze kissed with the scent of fresh-baked Bavarian apfelstrudel. The daily drama of survival on the sun-beaten savannah. Namibia is at once both quintessential Africa, and otherworldly. This special Explorers Club journey brings you deep into the heart of Southern Africa and introduces you to its wild creatures and still wilder landscapes.

From the capital Windhoek, your adventure begins to the north with a drive through the forested slopes of the Onboroko Mountains and the Waterberg Plateau, an isolated region that serves as a sanctuary for many of Namibia’s endangered species. The next morning, meet Explorers Club member Dr. Laurie Marker, director of the non-profit Cheetah Conservation Fund, before taking a private tour of the Fund’s rehabilitation center for these beautiful big cats.

Things get even wilder as you head north to Etosha National Park, whose watering holes attract wildebeests, impalas, leopards and a host of other animals. Game drives through the park will bring you into close contact with the wildlife and the gorgeous savanna they call home.

From Etosha, your next stop is the Ongava Private Game Reserve, one of Namibia’s largest and an ideal spot to track lions, rhinos, elephants, and giraffes. Ongava strives to keep the safari experience personal, and your game viewing here will feel as though the reserve is open just for you and the few other guests in your safari vehicle.

Next, head to Damaraland to a secluded mountain lodge that lives in harmony with its environment. Hike the grounds, track desert-dwelling elephants from an open safari vehicle, or unwind under the impossibly clear African sky.

You’ll also get the chance to strap on a sandboard to surf the dunes before and explore the Bavarian-accented city of Swakopmund before moving on to your final stop: Sossusvlei.

After strapping on a sandboard to surf the dunes around Bavarian-accented Swakopmund, the trip moves on to your final stop: the ochre-tinted dunes of Sossusvlei, where the great Namib Desert begins. You’ll explore this vast sea of sand and the spectacular Sesriem Canyon on a private tour with an expert guide. Take hold of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and discover a side of Africa that’s equal parts familiar and fantastical. You’ll return home forever changed.
