Namibia - into the great wilderness of Damaraland and Kaokoland

The essence of the trip:

Explore one of the largest wilderness areas in Africa on a unique journey through the dramatic, arid landscapes of Namibia. On this journey, inspired by the locations and scenes of the Oscar-nominated film "Mad Max: Fury Road ", we will take you by helicopter to the rough and desolate Skeleton Coast, where you will explore the remains of old ships as you walk the beaches where we set the backdrop for the epic dystopian action film. In the next eight days you will conquer some of the most remote and hostile regions of Africa: you will disappear from the scene of more well-known adventure routes through Namibia, trek, track, camp wild and go on foot in search of the impressive desert lions and elephants

On this trip you can expect:

  • Incredible first 24 hours in Namibia where you fly along the Skeleton Coast before landing on the highest mountain in the country where you camp for the night.
  • The opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the Namibian wilderness and trek through some of the most deserted regions imaginable.
  • Memories of desert-adapted lions and elephants on foot, a true safari experience that is different from the well-known safari style around worlds: on foot in search of desert lions and elephants
  • An insight into the unique culture of the San Bushmen and the semi-nomadic Himba, two of the last traditional tribes in Africa.

Details:

After your international flight lands in Windhoek, you will be met by your experienced guiding team and immediately board a helicopter for a breathtaking flight along the epic Skeleton Coast.

The next day you leave Brandberg and climb the spiritual and sacred Twyfelfontein Rock on foot. As you head north, you will pass through the center of Damaraland. Further north, your route takes you over the Doros Crater to the home of the Huab and Aba Huab rivers, where you end your second day of wild camping before you set off early the next morning for the Palmwag area.

Over the next two days, you will hike through the Palmwag Concession, following desert-adapted elephants, lions, and rhinos on foot. You spend your evenings in mobile bush camps. If you then head further north towards Kaokoland and the Hoanib River, you will watch the nocturnal goings-on of the wild animals and enjoy a poignant back-to-nature experience.

Over the next three days, you will continue across the Khumib River to the Orupembe region, home to one of the last traditional African tribes, the Himba, semi-nomadic ranchers. When you camp near the Himba, you will experience the unique culture of this ancient indigenous tribe like few customers have before you

You will spend the last two days of your trip in the west as you travel through the Hartman Mountains and into the breathtaking landscapes of the Hartman Valley, where your expedition ends. This trip allows you to experience some of the most sparsely populated, diverse landscapes on earth by combining trekking, tracking, and cultural insight. You will get an unprecedented glimpse into the deserts and wild African bush of Namibia.
