Day 1 - Arrive Marienfluss Valley

Meet and greet at Windhoek International and depart by light aircraft charter flight to Okahirongo River Camp. The flying time is approximately three hours and 30 minutes.

Okahirongo River Camp is an eco-friendly luxury tented lodge built on a sweeping ridge and opening up to breathtaking views of the Kunene River. Here at the River Camp you can experience the pure sound of nature: lose yourself in all the lights and shades that the sun draws over the mountains and let the Kunene river play the best music for deep meditation.

In the late afternoon, we will got out on a scenic drive. The red dune and the half moon valley are among our favourite spots to watch the African sunset. Enjoy favourite drink, a nice snack before dinner and a take in the priceless view and stunning colours of this corner of the World!

Day 2 - Marienfluss Valley

Himba tribes populating this area are among the last truly semi nomadic traditional tribes in the world. They move around following the necessities of their livestock and don’t bother to be found by travellers. With the experience and mediation of the guides - all 100% Himbas - guests have the best chance not only to see them but to get a real encounter. Leave early in the morning (the earlier the better) to find a tribe and meet them when all the activities are in full range. You will see them preparing breakfast, milking and taking care of the animals.

After 10:00 is usually resting time, move to the permanent villages, where there may be nobody (depending on the time of the year) but you can appreciate the difference in setting and architecture of the village with the more temporary camps where usually tribes are found. Breakfast will be enjoyed enroute back to the camp for a late lunch.

In the afternoon embark on an amazing opportunity to cruise the Kunene river and see the natural border between Angola and Namibia. Frequent sights are the Angolan Himba’s on the other side of the river, along with crocodiles, different birds and some particular plants. The sailing is the right amount of time to experience the unique setting of the river, sipping a cold drink and letting “the world slip”.

Day 3 - Kaokoland

Depart by shared light aircraft charter flight from Okahirongo River Camp to Okahirongo Elephant Lodge. The flying time is approximately two hours and 30 minutes.

Perched on a hill above the banks of the ephemeral Hoarusib River, the Okahirongo Elephant Lodge is possibly one of the most remote lodges in Namibia. Once you make it here, you will be rewarded with a genuine safari experience. The lodge will dazzle your senses with its mix of stylish tranquility, eccentric architecture, ultimate comfort and excellent service. An oasis of luxury in the middle of the desert.

In the afternoon, enjoy game activities to explore the area.

Puros area is the home of a residential herd of desert adapted elephants, some of the most scenic endemic species that populate this region. Stunning towers of giraffes, jumping springboks, kudus, birds and a rich variety of big and small wildlife can be observed during guided scenic drives in one of the many beautiful spots present around the lodge.

Of course, after a full day of discovering and enjoying the beauty of the desert there is nothing better than sip at your preferred choice of drink while gazing at the sun disappearing beyond the dunes. The expert guides know many different magic spots to give even returning guests an ever new sight on the landscape.

Day 4 - Kaokoland

Leaving early in the morning (06:00) will be forgiven by the extraordinary experience: your experienced guides will bring you to the area where the black rhino’s are resident in the Okahirongo area. Tracking is done by foot, with a supporting vehicle. The ranger will look for footprints and clues to track the elusive rhino in all safety: reaching them by downwind to avoid being spotted by these giants.

A brunch in the bush and a beautiful drive back to the lodge will ensure the pleasure to dive into the pool before sitting down for a scrumptious supper and gazing at the starry night over the desert.
