Plains Camp you will encounter friendly staff, massive raw walls, stunning stone clad features
and a huge tower with the best views over Etosha and its pans.
This Fort blends a classical African feeling a touch of Morocco and India, this is epitomised in a
selection of the most beautiful antique windows and doors.

Inside the tall, cool, roughly plastered
walls, a courtyard and a large water feature will refresh the senses. Across the courtyard is a
spacious beautifully decorated lounge and open air dining room. A large wooden deck will leads

Day 6 & 7
Continue to the Damaraland area.
Between the Ugab and Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoiled
wilderness. This area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations,
archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It's also the Southernmost
roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.
Mowani Mountain Camp is characterised by its thatched dome-shaped structures which echo the
shape of the granite boulders amongst which they are built.

Much care has been taken with the
design of the public areas, creating the impression of a (very upmarket) African Village, with
dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders which are scattered
around the outcrops.
Mowani is taken from the word M'Wane, meaning "Place of God", and it is here, that you will find
the true meaning of peace and tranquility. Mowani Mountain Camp nestles amongst the boulders
of this beautiful area on a high spot commanding distant views over the ancient landscape.

The luxury tented accommodation is built unobtrusively, so as to ensure minimum impact on the
natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents ensure that very little excavation was
needed in order to create this special oasis.
The main complex at Mowani consists of a reception, bar, dining room and a lounge which
overlooks the waterhole. Accommodation is in 12 luxury East-African-style en-suite safari tents
which are spread around the mountain crest. The tents are built on raised wooden platforms,
each with its own private veranda and great views of the Aba-Huab Valley.

The suite at Mowani is
the ultimate retreat! Built high upon a rocky outcrop, the views from every room are spectacular!
This luxury thatched suite comes complete with butler service and is tastefully furbished with a
distinct African flavour. The private lounge is equipped with a music centre and satellite television,complimented by private dining and bar facilities. Whether relaxing in the folds of your crisp white
bed, enjoying a romantic dinner under the stars or throwing caution to the wind in the open-air
bush bathroom, you'll be delighted by this unique bush experience!
Visit the Twyfelfontein, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes area. A guided nature drive in search of
the desert elephant and the elusive black rhino resident in this area will also be enjoyed.
Mowani Mountain Camp - Suite [Full board + elephant/nature drive]


Day 8
Leave the Damaraland area and continue to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Lunch will be
enjoyed en route.
Elegance was never so relaxed. Internationally acclaimed, award-winning Hansa Hotel offers
affordable prices and a relaxed, personalised approach to service, which may very well surprise
you. Each of fifty superbly furnished twin/double rooms and five suites are individually fitted and
decorated. At the far end of the world, you’ve never been closer to home. That’s because the
rooms are as personal as the service.
Optional activities that can be enjoyed in the afternoon include quad biking, sand boarding, horse
riding, camel rides etc, or perhaps a visit to the museum, aquarium or the crystal gallery.
Dinner and all activities and entrance fees are on own account

Day 9
After spending some time along the coast, your guide will transfer you to the Swakopmund airport
for your light aircraft flight (seat rate) to the impressive Sossusvlei area, departing at 14h15. Your
guide will transfer any excess luggage to Windhoek.
The NamibRand Nature Reserve is covered by wind-sculpted dunes, the highest in the world, and
700-million year-old mountains. The valleys and slopes are home to a unique gathering of wildlife,
some of which are found nowhere else on earth. Sightings including Hartmann's zebra, Grant's
golden mole, Oryx, spotted hyena, African wildcat and springbok. This is big sky country, and
home to more than 115 bird species, including Sociable Weavers, Black Eagles and Martial
Eagles.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge is a retreat from which to explore this rolling sand sea. From dawn to
dusk, it's an ever-changing landscape of light and shadows with vast, untrammeled vistas. Clouds
and mirages endlessly unfold in a seductive, silent dance of earth and sky as the Namib envelops
you in her stillness. The reserve's totally private dunes, mountains, and pristine spaces are
experienced by a maximum of 20 lodge residents.
Ten stone and glass desert suites combine unprecedented sophistication with the stark beauty of
the desert landscape. The air-conditioned and spacious rooms are designed to capture the
splendour and solitude of the desert.

Spaced well apart, each suite is a private haven with a
shaded deck overlooking the far horizons of the Namib Desert.
The split-level suites are located at the foot of a mountain overlooking an expansive Namib grass
plain leading into a sea of orange sand dunes. Each suite is equipped for the climatic extremes of the desert. There is a fireplace in the split-level lounge for winter evenings. For the hot desert
days, there are showers in the en-suite, glass-encased bathroom. There are also outdoor
showers for starlit bathing.
Cradled against ancient mountains, Sossusvlei Desert Lodge's decor embraces muted hues of
ochre, umber and ivory.

An expansive star-viewing window above the bed is every child-at-heart's
dream come true. The rooms are equipped with personal compact telescopes for game- or starspotting,
a service-intercom to the main lodge and a CD system.
The swimming pool is fed by an underground spring, emerging from deep within the desert. There
is something deliciously contradictory about floating in a pool in the middle of the world's oldest
desert.
On winter evenings, guests can select wine from the walk-in wine cellar before wandering through
to the fire-lit bar. After relaxing, drink in hand, in the main lounge and terrace, or in our upper
lounge and viewing deck, you may browse through our curio shop or CD and book library.

Sossusvlei Desert Lodge's own observatory houses the most powerful electronic telescope in
Namibia outside the National Observatory, allowing for breathtaking clarity during stargazing.
In the airy dining room, you can enjoy delectable African cuisine, prepared by a first-class
Namibian chef.
Lunch is on own account
Sossusvlei Desert Lodge [Fully Inclusive]


Day 10-12
Enjoy an early morning guided excursion to the towering dunes of Sossusvlei. Here you will be
able to view and climb some of the highest dunes in the world, some of which measures up to
325 m from its base.
Return to the lodge for lunch after which you will be picked up by a Wolwedans representative for
your road transfer to the NamibRand Nature Reserve. (approximately a 2 hour transfer)

The Mountain View Suite is a new addition to the Dunes Lodge. Just over 200 square meters of
deck rising above the dunes provides ample living space and adds a touch of luxury to the
Wolwedans Collection. Located within walking distance from the Wolwedans Dunes Lodge, yet
secluded, and nestled amidst a magnificent dunes landscape, The Suite allows friends of
Wolwedans to spend more than two nights in a homely and stylish atmosphere with ample space,
maximum comfort and a high degree of privacy. The Suite consists of a spacious bedroom with a
king-size double bed allowing guests to enjoy the view of their private dune valley to the fullest.
There is an en-suite bathroom facility with two wash basins, a shower and toilet.

A shaded patio provides an ideal venue for out-door meals and relaxed hours in the shade floating about in a
hammock. Add to this a spacious lounge, bar and dining area and you have a wonderful home
away from home. In the event that guests wish to enjoy meals ‘entre-nous’; an open plan
kitchenette supports the preparation of meals at the suite. An east-facing veranda and sun-deck
lead from the platform into the surrounding dunes. A special attraction is the ‘star-gazing’ bed
incorporated into the main veranda, providing a wonderful sleep-out venue during summer.
Keeping in line with the traditional Wolwedans style the ambience is that of plain elegance embraced by a natural, comfortable charm. The Suite is furnished with colonial/safari style
furniture and a well balanced variety of decorative items. The Suite can be regarded as very
elegant, yet allowing for a casual, relaxed and unpretentious life-style.
