Diverse Namibia safari is a 10 day / 9 night guided mobile safari and is an active and exciting adventure that takes you to the soaring dunes of Sossusvlei in southern Namibia, to the Atlantic Ocean coastline that teems with marine and bird life and onwards to the deserts of Damaraland with its desert-adapted wildlife and ancient rock art at Twyfelfontein. The last two days are spent viewing the plains game and their predators in the Etosha National Park, Namibia’s premier wildlife national park. The Etosha is also home to the largest land mammals found in Africa, including elephants and giraffe and a huge diversity of bird-life.
The Diverse Namibia fully escorted safari has set departure dates throughout the year and has a maximum participation of eight guests and a minimum of just two. It is a road based itinerary.
