Click on individual days for details

You have the option to book your flights separately or contact us quickly and easily via WhatsApp for a personal flight quote. If you book your flight separately, plan your arrival so that you arrive at the airport by afternoon at the latest, so that we can start our Namibia adventure together in the evening.

Please note that our Namibia trip does not consist exclusively of TripLegend guests. During the safari there may also be guests from our partners, so it is possible that families or guests who are younger or older are also included.

Our private shuttle will pick you up at the airport and we will drive to our accommodation in Windhoek to arrive in peace and get in the mood for the next days. In the evening we will get to know each other better at our joint Welcome Dinner.

Dinner

  private transfer (approx. 45 km/40 min.)

  Villa Vista

Your highlight today: Meet Naankuse and meet the animals in the sanctuary for the first time

On the first full day we drive to the N/a'an ku sê (pronounced "Naankuse") Wildlife Sanctuary, a sanctuary for injured and orphaned wildlife. The animals are cared for and protected here, as their condition would otherwise make it difficult for them to survive in the wild. We as a group will support the staff on site for one week! We will stay overnight in safari cabins, equipped with private bathrooms under the open sky. This means you can gaze at the endless expanse of the Namibian starry sky directly from the outdoor shower. Be excited!

We are a few kilometers from the nearest major town, but there is 1 hour of internet 3 times a day at a central meeting point during the simple but delicious meals, should you wish to use it. This way you can fully immerse yourself in the Namibian wildlife during the rest of the day.

 Breakfast, dinner

private transfer (approx. 50 km/45 min.)

 N/a'an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary

Your highlight today: e.g. feeding of the small animals at Naankuse Farm

Each day there will be different activities depending on which animals are on site at the time of your trip and for what reason. The sanctuary will divide you into groups that will rotate through different activities on weekdays - only the sanctuary will determine which activities are offered when and where your help is needed. Either way, there is a chance to learn a lot about Namibian wildlife and support a great project along the way. A unique experience you will never forget!

The following days offer you an overview of possible activities that will be carried out, depending on the situation on site. So be curious - it will not be boring in any case. Look forward to great animal encounters!

 Breakfast, lunch, dinner

 N/a'an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary

Your highlight today: e.g. feeding the predators

After a common breakfast we will help diligently in the sanctuary. Cheetahs, leopards, lions and African wild dogs live here and you will see all these animals live up close! Among other things, you will feed orphaned or injured animals and learn how to take care of injuries. Since the Naankuse area wants to rehabilitate as many animals as possible, we will also take care of "Animal Enrichment". This is to care for the animals in such a way that they are prepared for a life in the wild. This is in store for them after they have fully recovered.

 Breakfast, lunch, dinner

 N/a'an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary

Your highlights today: e.g. Help to keep the enclosures of the animals in the sanctuary clean

Optional: Be sure to take advantage of the lodge's available pool or book a delicious Sunday brunch at the lodge!

Our second game drive of the day takes us to the Etosha Pan, a huge dried up salt pan where we can again look for the big African animals: Lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and much more.

This is their way of supporting the rural communities. Afterwards we will have the chance to see the highest mountain in Namibia and an old shipwreck on the Skeleton Coast. In the afternoon we will arrive in a small town by the sea, Swakopmund. Here we will end the evening in a nice restaurant by the sea.

 Desert Camp

Your highlights today: Climb the highest dunes in the world and hike through the surreal Deadvlei

In order not to miss the beautiful sunrise in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, we will leave early. Be excited to see how the rising sun makes the desert landscape shimmer red-gold - a beautiful sight!

After enjoying the sunrise, we will drive a 4×4 jeep to Sossusvlei and hike from there to Deadvlei. Deadvlei is a large expanse of bleached, cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees contrasting with a backdrop of massive dunes. You have the choice of taking the leisurely path or detouring up the world's highest dune - "Big Daddy". From up there you can spy a wide view over the mystical valley.

You don't have to hike back down, gravity takes care of that: From the top you can slide down over the desert sand into Deadvlei - that's incredibly fun! On the way home we will stop at Dune 45, which we can also climb, and at a small canyon into which we will descend. A strenuous day, but well worth the effort!

After a last breakfast together it's time to say goodbye.

But the goodbye does not have to be forever, maybe we will see each other again soon on the next TripLegend adventure.

If you would like to extend your stay and explore the area further on your own, we will be happy to give you tips for additional activities and sightseeing.
