Self-Drive, the Only Way to Experience a Namibia Safari

By Jamie D Richardson

A luxury safari holiday is the perfect way to indulge in a truly memorable experience. The beautifully wild African continent is the perfect place to stay in the lap of luxury whilst exploring the untouched wilderness.

The epic scale of Namibia's landscape combined with the elegant resorts positioned along the route capture the imagination of those with a true sense of adventure. A 15 night self-drive holiday through this hauntingly beautiful environment begins with a peaceful stay at the Olive Grove Guest House. Here guests can relax and recover from the flight before embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. Traversing the rugged landscape for 5 hours brings you to the NamibRand Nature Reserve home to a variety of stunning landscapes. A 2 night stay at a Wolvedans' camp provides stunning views in a luxury setting.

A short drive to the Namib-Naukluft Park offers a vast change in scenery and the opportunity to explore the world's largest sand dunes. The Kuala Desert Lodge is immersed in the spectacularly arid environment but offers luxury "Kualas" with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. A swimming pool and central star-gazing deck complete the feeling of opulence. The next destination of Swakopmund offers a range of activities from dune-boarding to kayaking accompanied by a stay at the Hotel Adler Garni.

Embark on the spectacular road to Damaraland for 4 hours where you'll be greeted by imposing granite domes springing up from the gravel plains. A unique cultural experience awaits in the awe-inspiring rock paintings and engravings and the dome-shaped structures of the blissful Mowani Mountain Camp mirroring the stunning environment.

A further three hours drive brings you to a private game reserve beside Etosha National Park. Explore your surroundings with walks and game drives guided by local experts. Spectacular en-suite thatch and rock accommodation overlooking a busy waterhole provides the guest with a luxurious sense of intimacy with surrounding wildlife.

Your next stay is in the Onguma Tented Camp which combines sophistication and relaxation to produce the ultimate in safari chic. Seven tents exemplify inspiring African decor with the all the benefits of a modern hotel. Elegant dining extends the feeling of luxury as does the rim flow pool. Your stay here allows you to further explore Eastern Etosha, game viewing and visiting waterholes.

Bush farm is your final stay in your luxury 15 night journey. This family run farm is proudly devoted to preserving the welfare of cheetahs, lions, leopards, the elusive wild dog and the caracal. Accommodation consists of 8 luxury, thatched African-style chalets which are situated 80-100m apart providing privacy for the guest. Each are equipped with everything a guest could need including mini-bar and comfortable queen-sized bed. Your stay here gives you a chance to see and photograph the big cats up close and learn about African culture in the research and education centre. A three hour drive brings you back to the Windhoek Airport after the luxury safari of a lifetime.

Namibia is one of the undiscovered jewels of Southern Africa, beautiful, mercurial and contrasting this country's unique charm and striking geography will imprint itself forever in your mind.
