A lush canopy of indigenous trees provides shade for chalets and campsites, while the swimming pool has its spot on the sunny lawn, site of your next desert safari camp. This is the first of two locations you visit over the next few days that reside in far-off Kaokoland, a region so arid, remote and unforgiving, it’s wild even by Namibian standards.

Search for a local settlement of these semi-nomadic people, which may take a while, as they sometimes move location with no notice. Revel in this authentic opportunity to learn about the customs and traditions of this very proud nation, mingling with tribal members sporting ochre-red braided hair and costumes of hides and beads, and gaining insight into their beliefs, way of life and everyday routine. Afterward, enjoy a scenic drive back to the lodge and stop on top of a mountain for a stunning sunset over the picturesque landscape. Accommodation: Kunene River LodgeMeals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

      This morning, set out to a long arduous journey filled with unforgettable sights to Sossusvlei, lookout for ever-changing desert landscapes of the Namib Desert en route and the dune sea, a landscape dotted with abandoned mining camps, shipwrecks and salt pans. After a refueling stop, continue your journey with cameras at the ready, flying over the ‘Eduard Bohlen,’ a German cargo ship that ran aground in 1909 while it was on its way to Table Bay. Years after the ship ran aground, the desert began to encroach on the ocean and the freighter that was once stranded in the water slowly became stranded in the desert, an iconic prisoner of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast. Upon arrival, continue overland to your luxurious camp featuring ten spacious tents. Nestled on the southern edge of the Namib Desert, on a private reserve amid panoramic landscapes, it offers the perfect wilderness retreat. Accommodation: Greenfire Desert LodgeMeals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
