Namibia ‘Off the beaten track’

Round trip through less visited areas

This tour takes you back to the untouched nature of the Kalahari Desert, home of the San, with a trip to the Skeleton Coast and Etosha. Be prepared that you will not meet many people these two weeks.

In Kaokoland, Namibia's remote northwest, lies the Kunene region. A beautiful wilderness with dramatic landscapes, small populations of wildlife and the Himba. Then the rugged and untouched jagged nature of Skeleton Coast before seeking out the typical African savanna animals in the vast Etosha National Park.

To conclude, you will stay in Namibia's most pristine nature reserve, Khaudum National Park, where you will search for wild dogs.

Travel by 4WD and charter

Transfers are by land, but some places are so remote that they can only be reached by charter plane. This is not only an efficient way to travel, but during the flight you will have an insane view of the landscape. The vastness, the endless shades of color, you will see stunning Namibia from a different perspective.

Unlimited possibilities for inspiration

The combination of 4WD and charters makes the whole country open to you. This is also how you can view this particular trip: as inspiration to complement other itineraries - more focused on the well-known highlights - with one or more unique, little-visited destinations. The possibilities do not end with this trip. Inquire about even more "Off the beaten track" destinations in Namibia.
