Namibia Gay Safari TourThe Namib, a sea of red sand along the Atlantic coastline, and the oldest desert on the planet, lends its name to Namibia. A country of astonishing contrasts, Namibia is celebrated for its vast open landscapes, infinite blue skies and starry nights. Over the years, a number of cultural influences have contributed to the unique atmosphere of Namibia. Fascinating people, ancient traditions and spectacular scenery all contribute to the cultural tapestry of this wonder-filled nine-day Namibian itinerary. Discover these rich cultures while exploring the vast desert landscape. Our exclusive itinerary is limited to just 8 select travelers.

At various times Germany, Great Britain and South Africa governed the territory, but it was with the eventual independence of Namibia in 1990 that the country was able to develop its multicultural character and reinvent itself. There is a distinctive Namibian character that freely blends African styles with European influences on architecture, food, customs and art.

This trip is both a Pre-Trip to our Africa West Coast Deluxe Gay Cruise & a stand-alone trip for anyone interested in just visiting Namibia.

Namibia Deluxe Gay Tour & Safari Itinerary

Day 0 - Thursday, March 23, 2023
Depart the USA, Canada on any regularly scheduled flight to Windhoek, Namibia (WDH).

 

Day 1 - Friday, March 24, 2023
Arrive in Windhoek, Namibia
Windhoek, NamibiaUpon arrival, transfer to The Olive Exclusive hotel for check in. Dinner is at the hotel this evening.

Namibia’s capital, Windhoek is a bustling metropolis that is unexpectedly neat and orderly, though this is perhaps less surprising when one considers it was a German territory for many years.

This is the main port of call for most tourists, and all travellers pass through the city at least once. Situated in a pretty valley, Windhoek boasts buildings very much in the German architectural style. The German presence can be strongly felt in the food, restaurants – and, of course, the beer. The Namibian beer is said to be the best in Africa and is brewed in Windhoek.

Meals: Welcome Dinner
Hotel: The Olive Exclusive Boutique All-Suite Hotel, Windhoek, 4*

 

Day 2 - Saturday, March 25, 2023
Windhoek, Namibia to Twyfelfontein
Damaraland Wilderness SafariPrivate road transfer from The Olive Exclusive to Hosea Kutako International Airport. Flight from Hosea Kutako International Airport to Doro Nawas Airstrip. Flight from Doro Nawas Airstrip to Damaraland Camp. Arrive at Damaraland Camp.

Transfer to the Damaraland Camp, situated in the Huab River Valley in one of the best wilderness areas in Namibia, offering endless vistas across stark plains, ancient valleys and a stunning ochre-purple mountain backdrop. Our accommodations are at Damaraland Lodge. Ten large adobe-style thatched cottages are raised off the ground, each with a walk-in dressing area and a large deck on which to sit and relax, while contemplating the desert. The spacious communal living area comprises a dining space and pool. An open campfire and outdoor boma are enjoyed during calm evenings and stargazing is superb, thanks to the crystal-clear night skies.

Accommodations and meals at Damaraland Camp for 2 nights All meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry and all local drinks excludes premium imported brands and champagne.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Hotel: Wilderness Safaris Damaraland Camp, Twyfelfontein

 

Day 3 - Sunday, March 26, 2023
Twyfelfontein
Twyfelfontein, Namibia gay tourDamaraland is an area of stunning natural beauty, characterized by flat-topped mountains, wind-sculpted sandstone cliffs, broad valleys, and dry riverbeds that carve their way through deep gorges indicating a wetter past. Today, the rivers – mainly the Huab, Ugab, Uniab and Koigab – flow only sporadically; their riverbeds are ribbon-like oases that push through the most desolate of terrains, the underground water and tree-lined courses allowing even large species like arid-adapted elephant and rhino, sand-dwelling lions, as well as giraffe to roam the seemingly inhospitable desert and semi-desert.

Away from the river lines are vast open plains that in good rainfall years are covered by annual grasses, attracting herds of specialist arid antelope such as gemsbok and springbok. The area is known for its fascinating geological phenomena, petroglyphs – prehistoric rock engravings – and ancient San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Wilderness Safaris Damaraland Camp, Twyfelfontein

 

Day 4 - Monday, March 27, 2023

Accommodations and meals at Serra Cafema for 3 nights All meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry and all local drinks excludes premium imported brands and champagne.

Day 5 - Tuesday, March 28, 2023
Serra Cafema (Hartmann Valley)
Hartmann Valley, Namibia safariSet under verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. We can truly disconnect, unwind and relax to the sound of rushing water, and explore one of the driest deserts in the world. Respectful interaction with the semi-nomadic Himba community, fascinating guided nature walks, boating (water levels permitting) and low-impact eco-sensitive guided quad-bike excursions complete the experience.

The Kunene River is the only permanent source of water in this region, the river creating an oasis along its banks – a winding band of green surrounded by the lunar-like landscape of the Namib Desert which stretches to the Serra Cafema mountain range in the north. Game viewing in this area is limited to small herds of gemsbok, springbok and Hartmann's mountain zebra.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Wilderness Serra Cafema Camp, Kunene

 

Day 6 - Wednesday, March 29, 2023
Serra Cafema (Hartmann Valley)

Day 7 - Thursday, March 30, 2023
Serra Cafema to Sossusvlei
Sossusvlei, Namibia gay tourDepart from Serra Cafema. Flight from Serra Cafema to Doro Nawas Airstrip. Flight from Doro Nawas Airstrip to Little Kulala. Arrive at Little Kulala. We are met and transferred to Little Kulala Lodge.

Located in the scenic Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib Desert, formed where the natural course of the ephemeral Tsauchab River is blocked by a mass of sand. These dunes stretch for an impressive 400 kilometres (249 miles) south of Walvis Bay, sandwiched between the cold Benguela Current of the west coast, and the escarpment that runs parallel more than 100 kilometres (62 miles) inland. The path of the Tsauchab is flanked by some of the tallest sand dunes in the world, and then ends in a series of pans or vleis that dot the end of this blind river. Sossusvlei is one such pan, Dead Vlei another.

Our lodge, Little Kulala, features accommodation inspired by Dead Vlei. The design of the eleven luxury desert suites offer improved airflow (brick and glass accommodation under thatch), each feature a spacious deck, sala and private plunge pool – all merging seamlessly into the timeless desert setting. A private rooftop area for romantic stargazing, and sleep-outs on the bottom deck of each accommodation complete the experience. Interiors illustrate an extension of the desert's natural beauty, replicated in color choice, palette, decor and art.

Accommodations and meals at Little Kulala for 2 nights All meals, twice daily scheduled camp activities, park fees, laundry and all local drinks excludes premium imported brands and champagne.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Wilderness Little Kulala Camp, Sossusvlei

Namibia desert gay safariWake up to the clear blue skies that contrast with the majestic red sand dunes to make this one of the most scenic natural wonders of Africa and a photographer's paradise. This awe-inspiring destination is possibly Namibia's premier attraction.

We can climb “Big Daddy”, one of Sossusvlei’s tallest dunes at 380 metres (1 246 feet); explore Dead Vlei, a white, salt, clay pan dotted with ancient trees; or for those who love a bird’s-eye view, hot air ballooning is on offer, followed by a once-in-a-lifetime champagne breakfast amidst these magical dunes.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Hotel: Wilderness Little Kulala Camp, Sossusvlei

You should take a medium to small sized, softsided duffle bag on the Namibia trip.

These same shoes will be useful during the cruise if you are taking it.

Wilderness Safaris Damaraland Camp, Twyfelfontein

Spot desert-adapted elephants and other wildlife on nature walks and drives, learning their survival skills in this arid place. Search for smaller desert dwellers; follow a guide on a scorpion night walk with UV spotlighting. Travel to Tywfelfontein to view astounding San rock art dating back 6000 years.

Wilderness Serra Cafema Camp, Kunene

Set under verdant trees on the banks of the Kunene River, Serra Cafema is one of the most remote camps in southern Africa. Guests can truly disconnect, unwinding to the sound of rushing water, and beyond, to the desert’s silence.

Wilderness Serra Cafema Camp roomThe eight chalets and the common areas are set on elevated decks and crafted in wood, canvas, and thatch, at one with the environment, paying homage to Himba culture.

When water levels permit, boat on the Kunene, with Angola’s craggy mountains in the distance and plenty of Nile crocs on the banks and in the water. Explore the dunes on foot and in game vehicles, perhaps spotting oryxes, springbok, Hartmann’s mountain zebras, or tiny desert chameleons.

You can’t get much closer to the renowned dunes of Sossusvlei and the haunting panoramas of Dead Vlei, accessible through an exclusive-use gate.

Recently refurbished, Little Kulala entices with its adventures, its landscapes, its peace. Totally solar-powered, the new camp has cleaner, more modern lines than its predecessor, opening out more to the desert.

Wilderness Little Kulala Camp roomIts 11 climate-controlled suites – each with its own plunge pool – honour the local geology, reflecting the surrounding grey and pink limestone in colour and texture.
