Location of Adventure
Namibia, Southern Africa
Group Size Limit
Approximately 7 Travelers
A very important feature of our Namibia safaris is the limited group size as nature expeditions are best experienced with smaller sized groups of travelers.
Our Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
An essential element of this safari is our use of a combination of specialized vehicles during different parts of the trip, allowing for the unmatched game viewing opportunities promised by Natural Habitat Adventures. At times, we will travel in semi-open-sided 4x4 Stretch Land Cruisers or Land Rovers, allowing for enhanced game viewing and a comfortable and safe ride over the sometimes uneven terrain of Namibia's desert environs. Roof hatches add to the open safari experience, while additional comfort is ensured with secured drop-down plastic flaps used during longer transfers to provide respite from dust or rain. We will also use open 4x4 Land Rovers or Land Cruisers, with a unique suspension system and an open-top, open-sided, tiered seating arrangement, specially-designed to maximize game viewing opportunities and comfort. During our time in the Sossusvlei region, we will explore in closed 4x4 Land Cruisers or Land Rovers to provide protection from the winds that are possible in this vast, sandy landscape.

Both the open and semi-open-sided vehicles have 10 cushioned passenger seats, one in front next to the driver, followed by three rows of three seats each, though we limit our capacity to just 7 travelers, allowing each guest a window seat, again for maximum comfort and viewing. The closed 4x4 vehicles have 8 cushioned seats with a spacious interior providing generous room for travelers and their belongings. All offer a mini-fridge stocked with cold drinks and a small library with reference books and field guides. Each custom-built vehicle sports front bull bars and runner boards, as well as a full recovery kit, including spare tires and a high lift jack. Vehicles are updated or replaced regularly and meticulously maintained to provide our guests with an unmatched safari experience.

Physical Requirements
Easy to Moderate
There is no strenuous activity involved while on this safari; however, a safari vehicle oftentimes offers a bumpy ride. There are long hours sitting and sometimes bouncing around during wildlife drives and while we don't consider this strenuous, it can be a different type of physical demand on the body. You must be able to climb into and out of these raised 4x4 trucks that serve as our safari vehicles, as well as walk to and from your safari accommodations. Additionally, while any walks are considered optional, you will get the most out of your safari experience if you can walk a mile or two over uneven ground and rough or steep terrain unassisted. Climbing the sand dunes of Sossusvlei and walking over rocky terrain in search of the rhinos will be the most strenuous activity on this safari, but other, more moderate walks without incline are also available and still allow for enjoyment of the dunes (i.e. simply walking through Dead Vlei with a view up to the dunes). A unique element to Namibia is the dry and sandy/dusty conditions as this is truly a desert environment. We recommend that travelers have an adventurous spirit, as they will often enjoy the closest animal encounters.
Important Information About This Trip
This adventure encompasses the magic of Namibia’s vast and varied landscape, from the world’s tallest sand dunes to wildlife-rich Etosha National Park, without having to make long, hot, dusty drives that have traditionally been a part of a Namibia safari. A major benefit of this flight-based safari is the unbelievable view from the air. Towering dunes, endless desert, and rocky coastlines reveal Namibia’s natural diversity. Also by flying, we maximize our time on safari, rather than in transit. While the scenery - and the entire experience - is tremendous, the animal encounters here tend to be somewhat less plentiful than in some other safari destinations (though the Etosha portion is fantastic for wildlife!).
Mandatory Insurance
Since the areas we travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for our guests' safety. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat, we request that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We will add the cost of a medical evacuation policy to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, contact number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.
Getting There & Getting Home
You must arrive in Windhoek, Namibia by 6 pm on Day 1 and you may depart Windhoek anytime after 3 pm on the final day. We can best serve you if our Natural Habitat Adventures Travel Desk makes your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of these programs and can arrange the most efficient travel. Please call us at 1-800-543-8917. Note that while we offer you the best possible rates available to us on airfare and additional nights' accommodations, you may find special web rates or better fares online.
