This exotic adventure will take you through the plains where wildlife roams over to the breezy western coastline with its picturesque backdrop of towering desert-dunes.

The place to start your holiday is Sossusvlei surrounded by the highest dunes in the world where you can go ballooning over the red sands to see the sun rise. Continue on to the private nature reserve NamibRand to discover unique ecology that expands over the plains. Next, you fly north over Skeleton Coast with its brilliant blue oceans against copper-red dunes to Damaraland, where you could see massive desert elephants and black rhinos trample over the desert. For the final stop on your journey you move on to the Etosha National Park to see thousands of flamingos gather.
