Discover The Perfect Namibia Luxury Safari

By Catherine Jones

With an adventurous spirit and five or six thousand dollars you can have the African safari of your dreams. There are more choices than you might imagine, so sit back and take some time to visit the websites. People who like the idea of seeing wild animals running free, but are not too happy about roughing it with a sleeping bag and camping equipment can have both luxury and safari at the same time. You can discover the Namibia luxury safari that will surpass anything you could imagine.

Picture a luxurious flying safari that includes four destinations with beautiful landscapes and wildlife living the way they were meant to live, roaming free across the land. You will travel by air to Windhoek, the small capital city of Namibia. The architecture is German, and you will stay in a castle named the Hotel Heinizburg. This is a Relais and Chateaux property, a very respected and rare distinction. The sixteen guest rooms are luxuriously appointed, and the property is complete with all the amenities you would find at any five star hotel.

Your next stop is the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge where guests are surrounded by towering sand dunes of terracotta color due to the iron content. The dunes look forsaken of any life forms. This is one of the driest ecosystems in the world, yet there are flat pans of cracked sand, vleis, that do sustain some life. You will spend two days exploring the Namib Desert, or you may choose to take in the luxury of the lodge.

Then you will travel by air to Damaraland and stay the Mowani Mountain Camp in the Twfelfontein Conservancy. There are fourteen luxurious huts grouped closely like an African village. The activities are varied. They offer elephant nature drives where guests see these enormous animals in their natural environment. Or you can go hot air ballooning to get a birds eye view of the landscape.

Your final stop before flying back to where you started, is the Etosha National Park. Your choices for lodging are the Mushara Collection, an expansive lodge with separate villas, or the Onguma Game Reserve. This destination offers a wealth of opportunities to view wildlife in its natural habitat. The sight of forty zebras roaming around and drinking from a watering hole has a miraculous feeling.

After Etosha you will travel by air back to Windhoek, where you get a return flight to your home. This describes the itinerary of only one safari. There are many more from which to choose, each offering a different experience. This particular travel package is over 5,000 thousand dollars for each person. Luxury comes at a steep price, but these unspoiled landscapes are well worth the cost.

To plan your adventure first spend time reviewing all the websites. They are all beautifully designed and contain elaborate detail. There is no wrong choice, but the right one is the safari best suited to your interests.

If you have never been to an African country you will surely be taken aback by the land, the animals, the buildings and the people. You will see these beautiful sights as if through the eyes of a small child. Everything will be that new to you. You will absolutely be awestruck.
