This delightful lodge and wildlife sanctuary will give you a wonderful introduction to Namibia’s wildlife and bush veldt.
The next three days are left free for you to explore N/a’an ku sê Lodge and the Wildlife Sanctuary. Activities during your stay include 1x scheduled Carnivore feeding Tour, 1x scheduled Ancient San Skills Academy and 1x scheduled Ancient San Stories under the stars and 1x “behind the scenes” activity, if available and on offer.
These activities will be pre booked, subject to availability, and you can liaise with the lodge directly regarding the final program. Any other and additional excursions / lodge activities are optional and for your own account (to be booked & settled directly).
Located just a twenty minute drive from Windhoek International airport and nestled in the stunning African veld, this Lodge is perfectly situated to start or finish a trip to Namibia. There is a range of enjoyable activities including an exciting carnivore feeding tour. The Lodge is crafted from ecologically clean material including solid logs and glass to complement the beautiful wilderness setting.
The carnivore feeding tour is the lodge’s most popular activity! Join an exciting and informative full carnivore feeding tour for a once in a lifetime wildlife experience. During the course of this tour, you will visit and watch lions, leopards, wild dogs, baboons, caracals and cheetahs as they are fed by our qualified guides. You will hear stories about how each animal came to Naankuse and learn more about their behaviour in the wild. This activity is an excellent opportunity for fantastic up-close photographs. Carnivore feeding tours take place daily at 10:00 and 15:00.
The Ancient Skills Academy is their newest activity hosted at the Omaanda-Ombidi Reserve, across from the Naankuse Sanctuary. When visiting the academy, you will experience a variety of ancient San activities: tracking in the veldt, fire-making with traditional San fire sticks, seeking out plants used for medicinal purposes, hunting and setting game traps, as well as traditional dances and singing! Tours occur daily at 10:00 and 15:00.
Bushman Stories under the Stars: Our nature guide will take you to the Naankuse Ancient San Skills Academy, where you will join the San Bushmen around their evening fire and listen to their traditional stories about the stars, animals, galaxies, and the universe. They might even entertain you with a few traditional dances and singing! This is a great way to experience the Namibian bush at night and share in a little piece of San tradition. This activity departs from the lodge at 19:15. We offer an early dinner to ensure guests are not hungry during the activity. The tour takes approximately two hours.
Behind the scenes: Begin with an early breakfast at N/a’an ku sê Lodge and join a talk on the project and sanctuary by Marlice van Vuuren, she will cover the following topics during the talk; animal interaction, research components, animal husbandry, animal feeding, and conservation in Namibia. Depending on the ages of the children and at the discretion of the lodge, the children could possibly get an up close glimpse of baby baboons, cheetah, wild dog and a variety of orphaned wildlife at the rehab centre. This activity should be booked in advance and is dependent on availability.
Overnight Naankuse Lodge
Day 4: Naankuse to Sossusvlei Area
This morning you meet your guide who will accompany you on the remainder of your safari. You depart in your safari vehicle and drive southwest through the scenic Khomas Hochland highlands before you head down the Great Escarpment into the Namib Desert below. A picnic lunch will be served at a scenic location en-route. You will arrive at Desert Homestead Outpost in the late afternoon where you will stay for two nights whilst you explore the remarkable sights of the Namib Desert with your guide. If there is still time today, your guide will take you to visit Sesriem Canyon, a nearby geological attraction, or you can relax and soak in the scenic and tranquil surroundings at Desert Homestead.
Sesriem Canyon has evolved through centuries of erosion by the Tsauchab River which has incised a narrow gorge about 1.5 km long and 30 meters deep into the surrounding conglomerates, exposing the varying layers of sedimentation deposited over millions of years. The shaded cool depths of the canyon allow pools of water to gather during the rain season and remain for much of the year round. These pools were a vital source of water for early settlers who drew water for their livestock by knotting six (SES) lengths of rawhide thongs (riems) together, hence the canyon and surrounding area became known as Sesriem.
Desert Homestead Outpost: Deep in the 7000 ha nature reserve of Desert Homestead Lodge the Outpost opens its gates and offers relaxed hospitality with a natural atmosphere. Enjoy the impressive panoramic view from the 11 houses, the family apartment or the main house with restaurant, lounge and pool area, set on the base of a mountain. On the wide open plains there are often cheetahs to observe, roaming the endless grasslands. Our guests are welcome to take advantage of all activities of the Desert Homestead Lodge. Excursions to Sossusvlei as well as horse-safaris on Sundowner drives are offered.
Overnight Desert Homestead Outpost
Day 5: Sesriem/Sossusvlei
This morning you will rise early for a magical excursion with your guide into the Namib Naukluft National Park, entering the Park gates at sunrise to capture the dunes whilst the light is soft and shadows accentuate their towering shapes and curves. This area boasts some of the highest free-standing sand dunes in the world. Your Ultimate guide will give you an insight on the formation of the Namib Desert and its myriad of fascinating creatures and plants that have adapted to survive these harsh environs.
Once you have explored to your hearts content you can enjoy a relaxing picnic breakfast under the shade of a camel thorn tree. Return to Desert Homestead Outpost in the early afternoon for a late lunch, stopping off to view Sesriem Canyon along the way. The rest of the afternoon is at your leisure (from experience, this is usually welcomed after an exhilarating morning in the dunes). This afternoon you have the option to enjoy a horse riding activity at an additional cost (subject to age restrictions).
The Namib is a coastal desert that consists of dune fields, gravel plains and bare rock. The only true desert in Africa south of the equator, the Namib lies largely within Namibia, along the Southeastern shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean. In the south it extends into South Africa, across the Orange River, while in the north it crosses the Kunene River into Angola. Three-quarters of it falls within Namibia, where it covers nearly a fifth of the country, an area four times the size of Switzerland. With a coastline of 1 570 km, the Namib Desert occupies the western margin of the country in its entirety, from the ocean to the Great Escarpment. Arid on the whole for the past 15 million years, the Namib is a desert on top of a desert, with petrified dunes buried beneath active sands. As such it is widely held to be the oldest desert on earth. The present day surface sands formed after the cold Benguela Current began to flow offshore, but its physical boundaries, the ocean and the escarpment, are very much older. The Namib Sand Sea is created by sediments washed down the Orange River to the Atlantic, where the Benguela Current sweeps it northwards and dumps it onshore. Finally, onshore winds drive the sand inland to form dunes of all shapes and sizes. The sand consists largely of quartz grains with patches of heavy minerals such as garnet, ilmenite and magnetite as well as a little mica darkening the dunes. The colour of the quartz grains darkens from pale buff in the west to deep red in the east as the iron-oxide content of the sand increases. Between the seaside towns of Walvis Bay and Luderitz, the Namib Sand Sea is greater in size than Israel and Lebanon combined. It is filled with dunes and is virtually impenetrable except along its fringes, for example where the Tsauchab River carves a valley to Sossusvlei.
The most frequently visited section of the massive 50 000 km² Namib Naukluft National Park has become known as Sossusvlei, famous for its towering apricot-colored sand dunes which can be reached by following the Tsauchab River valley. Sossusvlei itself is actually a clay pan set amidst these star shaped dunes which stand up to 300 meters above the surrounding plains, ranking them among the tallest dunes on earth. The deathly white clay pan contrasts against the orange sands and forms the endpoint of the ephemeral Tsauchab River, within the interior of the Namib Sand Sea. The river course rises south of the Naukluft Mountains in the Great Escarpment. It penetrates the sand sea for some 55 km before it finally peters out at Sossusvlei, about the same distance from the Atlantic Ocean. Until the encroaching dunes blocked its course around 60 000 years ago, the Tsauchab River once reached the sea; as ephemeral rivers still do in the northern half of the Namib. Sand-locked pans to the west show where the river previously flowed to before dunes shifted its endpoint to where it currently gathers at Sossusvlei. Roughly once a decade rainfall over the catchment area is sufficient to bring the river down in flood and fill the pan. On such occasions the mirror images of dunes and camel thorn trees around the pan are reflected in the water. Sossusvlei is the biggest of four pans in the vicinity. Another, famous for its gnarled and ghostly camel thorn trees, is Deadvlei, which can be reached on foot over 1 km of sand. Deadvlei’s striking camel thorn trees, dead for want of water, still stand erect as they once grew. They survived until about 900 years ago when the sand sea finally blocked the river from occasionally flooding the pan.
Sesriem Canyon has evolved through centuries of erosion by the Tsauchab River which has incised a narrow gorge about 1.5 km long and 30 meters deep into the surrounding conglomerates, exposing the varying layers of sedimentation deposited over millions of years. The shaded cool depths of the canyon allow pools of water to gather during the rainy season and remain for much of the year round.

Day 6: Sossusvlei to Swakopmund
The fascinating drive today takes you northwest through awesome and ever changing desert landscapes of the Namib Naukluft National Park, including the impressive Gaub and Kuiseb canyons. You will meet the coast at the port town of Walvis Bay, visiting the lagoon to see the interesting mix of pelicans, flamingos and other sea-birds, before continuing north to Swakopmund where you can enjoy the pleasant seaside location and cooler coastal air for the next two nights. There will be time this afternoon to wander around town and along the waterfront on foot if appeals, before heading off to dinner at the popular Tug Restaurant by the jetty which specializes in fresh seafood.
Swakopmund resembles a small, German coastal resort nestled between the desert and the sea. It boasts a charming combination of German colonial architecture blended with good hotels, shops, restaurants, museums, craft centres, galleries and cafés. Swakopmund had its beginnings as a landing station in 1892 when the Imperial Navy erected beacons on the site. Settlers followed soon after, whereby their attempts to create a harbour town by constructing a concrete Mole and then iron jetty soon failed. The advent of World War 1 halted developments and the town sank into decline until half a century later when infrastructures improved and an asphalt road opened between Windhoek and Swakopmund. This made reaching the previously isolated town quicker and easier and it prospered once again to become Namibia’s premier resort town. Although the sea is normally cold for swimming there are pleasant beaches and the cooler climate is refreshing after the time spent in the desert.
With a real lodge feeling and for the romantic adventurer, The Stiltz is the place to stay in Swakopmund. This unique bed and breakfast on stiltz 3.5 m above the ground with the most amazing views overlooking the sand dunes on the one side, the Atlantic Ocean on the other and in the centre the small lagoon with many different bird species. The attention to detail, the handmade furniture and happy colours inside these wooden bungalows make for the most wonderful stay. Friendly staff and a great breakfast make the stiltz extraordinary. We are only a few minutes away from the town centre.
Overnight: The Stiltz Villa
Day 7: Swakopmund
After an early breakfast your guide will drive you along the scenic coastal road to Walvis Bay for a memorable seal and dolphin cruise on a luxury Catamaran within the outer lagoon and harbour. This is an ideal way of seeing Cape fur seals, Heaviside and bottlenose dolphins, pelicans, flamingos and a wide variety of other sea birds. If you are lucky, there is also a chance of seeing whales, leatherback turtles and sunfish. During the course of the cruise a scrumptious brunch will be served along with local sparkling wine and fresh oysters, but a very kiddie friendly menu is on offer for the family at no additional cost.
You will return to the jetty at roughly 12h30 after which you may like to explore Walvis Bay further before returning to Swakopmund for an afternoon at leisure at your guesthouse or in town. You may also like to partake in some of the many other activities that Swakopmund has to offer, these include camel rides, scenic flights, sand boarding (usually offered in the morning), sky diving and more (all at extra cost). Dinner tonight is enjoyed at one of the many local restaurants in town.
Overnight The Stiltz Villa
Day 8: Swakopmund to Damaraland
Continuing on your safari today, the road takes you north and east into the wonderful and diverse region of Damaraland. You pass Namibia’s highest mountain, the Brandberg which peaks at 2,573 m above sea level, and take time to view game and absorb the vastness of the scenery along the way. Damaraland is typified by displays of colour, magnificent table topped mountains, rock formations and bizarre-looking vegetation. The present day landscape has been formed by the erosion of wind, water and geological forces which have formed rolling hills, dunes, gravel plains and ancient river terraces. It is the variety and loneliness of the area as well as the scenic splendor which will reward and astound you, giving one an authentic understanding of the word ‘wilderness’.
If time allows this afternoon your guide will take you to visit the nearby attractions and geological sites of the pre-historic Twyfelfontein rock engravings (recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes – if not there is plenty of time to see them tomorrow.
Strewn over a hillside amongst flat-topped mountains of red sandstone, Twyfelfontein’s boulders and slabs of red sandstone hold some 2,500 prehistoric engravings that depict wildlife, animal spoor and abstract motifs. It is perhaps the largest and finest collection of petroglyphs in Africa. The engravings show animals such as elephant, giraffe, kudu, lion, rhinoceros, springbok, zebra and ostrich that once used to drink from a fountain at the bottom of the hill. In some cases footprints were engraved instead of hooves or paws. The abstract motifs feature mainly circles. Stone tools and other artifacts found at Twyfelfontein suggest that hunter-gatherers occupied the site over a period of perhaps 7,000 years. These days a local guide accompanies visitors to showcase the rock art. The engravings lie along two circular routes, one an hour’s climb and the other 40 minutes longer. Twyfelfontein is one of Namibia’s key National Monuments and has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
A rounded hill located a few kilometers from Twyfelfontein and the Organ Pipes, known as the Burnt Mountain, seems to catch fire again at sunrise and sunset. Its fantastic range of colours at dawn and dusk are due to a chemical reaction that took place roughly 125 million years ago when molten lava penetrated organic shale and limestone deposits, resulting in contact metamorphism. In ordinary sunlight it is a dull black. Blackened rubble lies to one side like cinders from the original fire.
The Organ Pipes are another geological curiosity in the area consisting of a mass of perpendicular dolerite columns that intruded the surrounding rocks also about 125 million years ago and have since been exposed in a ravine due to river erosion.
Mowani Mountain Camp is ideally located a short drive from the local attractions in the area. The Camp is nestled amongst giant granite boulders, overlooking the ephemeral Aba Huab riverbed where desert adapted elephants often traverse. The thatch dome-shape structures echo the shape of the rough textured granite boulders amongst which they are built, a theme complemented by African wood carvings and artifacts. Mowani’s main complex consists of a reception area, bar, spacious alfresco dining room, lounge overlooking a waterhole and an inviting fireplace nearby to relax beside in the evenings. A refreshing swimming pool and fantastic sundowner viewpoint with its own bar also complement the Camp. Guests are accommodated in luxury East African style en-suite safari tents built on raised wooden platforms, each with a private verandah and splendid views over the Aba Huab valley.
Overnight Mowani Mountain Camp
Day 9: Damaraland
After an early breakfast you will be treated to an exciting 4×4 excursion along the ephemeral Aba Huab River valley to explore this remarkable region and to search for game, especially the elusive desert adapted elephants if they are in the area. Damaraland is home to a variety of desert adapted wildlife and hidden desert treasures.
You will return to Camp for lunch and this afternoon you may visit Twyfelfontein and other nearby attractions if you haven’t already done so, or relax and enjoy some well-deserved leisure time…
In habitats with sufficient vegetation and water an adult elephant consumes as much as 300 kg of roughage and 230 litres of water every day of its life. Consider what a herd of them would eat and drink in a week or a month or a year. African elephant in a desert? Well, yes, and not only elephant, but other large mammals as well, such as black rhinoceros and giraffe. Their ranges extend from river catchments in northern Kaokoveld as far south as the northern Namib. Apart from the Kunene River, seven river courses northwards from the Ugab provide them with possible routes across the desert, right to the Skeleton Coast. The biggest are the Hoarusib, the Hoanib, the Huab and the Ugab Rivers. Desert adapted elephant in Kaokoland and the Namib walk further for water and fodder than any other elephant in Africa. The distances between waterholes and feeding grounds can be as great as 68 km. The typical home range of a family herd is larger than 2,000 km², or eight times as big as ranges in central Africa where rainfall is much higher. They walk and feed at night and rest during the day. To meet their nutritional and bulk requirements they browse on no fewer than 74 of the 103 plant species that grow in their range. Not a separate species or even a subspecies, they are an ecotype unique to Namibia in Africa south of the equator, behaviorally adapted to hyper-arid conditions. Elephant in Mali on the southwestern fringe of the Sahara Desert are the only others known to survive in similar conditions.
Overnight Mowani Mountain Camp
Day 10: Damaraland
After an early breakfast your guide will take you on an excursion to the area near Grootberg where you will visit a remote Himba village, only known to a few people. Your guide’s presence and contacts with the local community will ensure you will be welcomed as a ‘friend of a friend’ and that you will be able to spend considerable time there learning about these fascinating nomadic pastoralists. There has been virtually no modern influence on these communities, which makes for a fascinating cultural exchange. After what should be a captivating experience you will enjoy a picnic lunch. You also have the opportunity to visit a local school (provided it falls during the week and not school holidays) and then start heading back to camp, arriving back at camp in the late afternoon.
The Himba, Tjimba and other Herero people who inhabit Namibia’s remote north-western Kunene Region are loosely referred to as the Kaokovelders. Basically Herero in terms of origin, language and culture, they are semi-nomadic pastoralists who tend to tend from one watering place to another. They seldom leave their home areas and maintain, even in their own, on which other cultures have made little impression. For many centuries they have lived a relatively isolated existence and were not involved to any noteworthy extent in the long struggle for pasturelands between the Nama and the Herero.
The largest group of Kaokovelders is the Himba, semi-nomads who live in scattered settlements throughout the Kunene Region. They are a tall, slender and statuesque people, characterized especially by their proud yet friendly bearing.
The women especially are noted for their unusual sculptural beauty, enhanced by intricate hairstyles and traditional adornments. They rub their bodies with red ochre and fat, a treatment that protects their skins against the harsh desert climate. The homes of the Himba of Kaokoland are simple, cone-shaped structures of saplings, bound together with palm leaves and plastered with mud and dung. The men build the structures, while the women mix the clay and do the plastering. A fire burns in the headman’s hut day and night, to keep away insects and provide light and heating. A family may move from one home to another several times a year to seek grazing for their goats and cattle. Men, women and children wear body adornments made from iron and shell beads.
A Himba woman spends as much as three hours a day on her toilette. First she bathes, then she anoints herself with her own individually prepared mixture not only protects her skin from the harsh desert sun, but also keeps insects away and prevents her body hair from falling out. She uses another mixture of butter-fat, fresh herbs and black coals to rub on her hair, and ‘steams’ her clothes regularly over the permanent fire. Men, women and children adorn themselves with necklaces, bracelets, anklets and belts made from iron and shell beads. With their unusual and striking designs, these items have gained a commercial value and are being produced on a small scale for the urban market. Sculptural headrests in particular are sought-after item.
Overnight Mowani Mountain Camp
Day 11: Damaraland to AfriCat Foundation
This morning you depart and drive southeast to stay at Okonjima Bush Camp, located at the base of the Omboroko Mountains near Waterberg, where you will stay at the luxurious Bush Camp. This is a wonderful highlight to conclude your safari on. Here you can enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, superb accommodation and fascinating activities as arranged through the AfriCat Foundation; starting with a guided afternoon excursion and the possibility of a visit to the night hide after dinner, if on offer.
Okonjima Bush Camp is situated at the edge of a wilderness area in the Omboroko Mountains, about three hours’ drive north from Windhoek. Accommodation at Okonjima Bush Camp consists of nine charming thatched African Chalets. Each exclusive chalet is completely private and the green canvas ‘walls’ can be rolled up to give you an 180 degree view so you can lie in bed and watch life in the bush going on around you whilst you relax in total comfort. All meals are taken at the cosy main Lapa area shaped like a camelthorn pod, which is also where all activities begin. Okonjima has an education and research centre, as well as rehabilitation camps for various animals and it is home to a large number of rescued cheetahs, leopards, and other predators. You will have the opportunity to learn about what is being done by the foundation to ensure the survival of cheetah and leopard in Namibia. For the energetic early-riser there are interesting guided walking trails on offer, and bird watching is also a popular activity as over 300 bird species have been identified here. Two spacious hides are located within easy walking distance of the lodge and another is situated at a recently established vulture restaurant just a short drive away. Okonjima also has three domesticated lions – Matata, Tambo and Tessie who were born in captivity and rescued by AfriCat. They have become long term residents and, although visits to their home compound no longer form part of the activities generally on offer, they can often be heard in the mornings before trails leave the lodge. Please note: because of the proximity of lion, leopard and cheetah, children under the age of 12 are not allowed at Okonjima Bush Camp. Okonjima Bush Camp is situated at the edge of a wilderness area in the Omboroko Mountains about three hours drive north from Windhoek.
Overnight: Okonjima Bush Camp
Day 12: AfriCat Foundation
You will rise early this morning for another memorable guided activity before you return to Bush Camp for a sumptuous brunch. Your early afternoon can be spent relaxing by the swimming pool overlooking the waterhole and enjoying the tranquillity of the sun until you go out on another excursion to see more of the AfriCat Foundation projects in the afternoon.
AfriCat Foundation: Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, a wildlife sanctuary founded in 1991 that is dedicated to creating conservation awareness, preserving habitat, promoting environmental educational research and supporting animal welfare. Their main focus is Africa’s big cats, especially injured or captured leopard and cheetah. AfriCat runs the largest cheetah and leopard rescue and release programme in the world. In the last 17 years over 1 000 of these predators have been rescued with over 85 % being released back into the wild.
Overnight: Okonjima Bush Camp
Day 13: AfriCat Foundation to Windhoek
This morning is spent on another exciting scheduled activity before you return to Bush Camp for a sumptuous breakfast. After freshening up you will depart for Windhoek in the late morning, via the town of Okahandja, to arrive back in Windhoek in the mid afternoon. If time allows, you will have the option to visit the Woodcarvers Craft Market in Okahandja for some last minute curio shopping before continuing on to Windhoek. Upon your arrival in Windhoek you will be transferred to the Olive Exclusive for your last night in Namibia. Dinner tonight is enjoyed at the in house restaurant or at a local restaurant together with your guide.
Directly north of Windhoek lays Okahandja, a town of great significance to the Herero people because it was once the seat of Chief Sameul Maharero. Every year on 26 August referred to as Heroes’ Day thousands of Herero’s converge in the town to pay homage at the graves of their great chiefs. Some of the women are dressed in traditional red and black, others in green and black, while the men wear full military regalia complete with medals. Visitors are welcome to view this rich and colorful ceremony. According to historian Dr. Vedder, the name Okahandja comes from Herero and means ‘small widening’, the place where the rivers meet. The earliest records of the town date back to 1844 when the first two missionaries arrived there. The year 1894, however, is regarded as the birth of the town as Okahandja became a military base in this year and a fort was built. On 26 August, 1923, the famous Herero Chief Samuel Maharero was laid to rest in Okahandja at a funeral attended by approximately 2 000 people. Since then this day has been celebrated annually at Okahandja by the Herero people. The town is an important center for woodcarvers from the north. They practice their ancient skills at the wood and thatch Mbangura woodcarvers Market next to the main road, both at the entrance and at the exit of the town.
Olive Exclusive is a lovely new welcoming boutique hotel situated close to Windhoek’s city centre in the quiet, peaceful suburb of Eros. Nestled amongst an olive tree plantation, this new, luxurious hotel provides exclusive suite accommodation with beautiful views over the olive trees towards the Windhoek Mountains. Accommodation is offered in premier suites or junior suites. Premier suites boast their own expansive balcony and plunge pool.

Day 14: Departure
Should you have time this morning, you can explore Windhoek, if you have any last minute shopping to be done, before being transferred to the Windhoek International Airport by your guide in time for your international flight. This is officially the end of your Namibian Safari. We hope to see you again soon!
