Day 1: Mariental

Welcome to beautiful Namibia!

Arrival at the Windhoek International Airport, here you are able to exchange some money and also purchase a MTC telephone card. Here you will get a transfer to the Zebra Kalahari Lodge.  It is important to arrive latest by 13:00 as it is a approximate drive of 250 km ( 3h00 drive) to the lodge.

Check-in and then you take part in a  sundowner drive.

Here you can experience a safari into the sunset, in style and in a relaxed state of mind. A guide with extensive knowledge of the region and its flora and fauna will take you out into the open countryside in an open jeep.

On the way you can review the events of the day in the light of the setting sun, enjoy the picturesque landscape of Namibian countryside and perhaps even observe some animals active at twilight.

Once you’ve arrived in the middle of the Kalahari dunes, in the dry savannah,  you can make yourself comfortable and enjoy a cool drink while watching the sun slowly disappear behind the horizon. Immerse yourself in what is the probably the most beautiful time of the day, when all the countryside is bathed in warm light.

After taking time to pause and reflect, our travellers are finally brought back to their lodge. 

Dinner, bed and breakfast,  Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge.

Spreading across Botswana, South Africa and Namibia, the Kalahari meaning ‘the great thirst’ is an exceptionally beautiful living desert. The landscape is characterised by a large semi-arid sandy savannah draped over a gently rolling inland sea of sand covering most of Botswana and large parts of Namibia and South Africa. It is also the last bastion of the indigenous San people with the modern world having enveloped all the other areas they once roamed. The Namibian portion is made up of red sands covered in thin, wispy, mostly golden grass and dotted with acacia trees and wide-ranging wildlife including gemsbok, impala, jackals and cheetah.

Travel distance: 242.8 km

Kalahari Red Dunes Lodge

KALAHARI RED DUNES LODGE, a lodge designed with a lot of passion for details, is located in the impressive Kalahari landscape characterized by red sand dunes and camel thorn trees. Its “Luxury of Solitude”, offers ample space and privacy.

The main house, consisting of reception, lobby, restaurant and bar, pool and shaded deck is situated in a dry lake (vlei). A wooden boardwalk connects the main building with the chalets which are nestled around the ‘vlei’, where often animals can be observed. Each chalet has a thatched roofed tented and a stoned section as well as a private terrace. During the Nature/ Game Drives and nature walks guests can experience the breathtaking beauty of the Kalahari with it’s up to 30 m high red dunes and a huge variety of game.

The guest houses with their thatched roofs are each decorated in an individual style and are connected to each other by a paved walk-way.

The vastness of the African Savannah can be experienced on the 2-day TRANS KALAHARI WALK. This guided hike leads through desert-like sceneries and their habitat of giraffes, zebras and antelopes and offers one overnight stay in a luxury tented camp in the dunes.

Fish River Lodge

Fish River Lodge in southern Namibia is the only lodge perched directly on the rim of the Fish River Canyon offering guests breathtaking views of the canyon from sunrise to sunset.

Experience first hand the geological forces that unfolded 300 million years ago, when the Fish River began to etch its way through hard quartzite forming a Canyon 90 kilometers long, 549 meters deep and 28 kilometers wide in some places, making it the world’s second largest Canyon. The 45 000 hectare Canyon Nature Park is a natural sanctuary for Karoo succulent flora and endemic wildlife.

Incredible hiking trails meander down into the heart of the canyon affording guests spectacular scenery combined with 75 km river frontage made up of permanent water holes and rock pools that attract Hartmans Zebra, Kudu, Oryx, Springbok and many other smaller wildlife species and endemic bird life.

Zebra Kalahari Lodge & Spa

Simply stylish and elegant, the Zebra Kalahari Lodge is the most decadent of the 3 lodges on the Intu Afrika Private Game Reserve. After a short drive through the contrasting Kalahari Desert where game languishes under trees or in pans, guests are welcomed with a much-needed refreshing drink and a smile as warm as the desert sun. The gurgling fish pond and the beautiful stone and wood buildings immediately soothe one’s soul and guests are ushered into the coolness of the lounge area overlooking a rather vibrant waterhole and swimming pool whilst logistics are efficiently handled.

The rooms area are huge and the walls are decorated with ancient African masks and ebony furnishings and are fitted with air conditioners, a mini bar, a hairdryer and a coffee and tea station with a very large bathroom leading out to an outside shower.

There are 8 rooms adjacent to the lodge area which consists of a lounge with comfortable leather seats, a dining area on a deck mirroring the waterhole and swimming pool and a bar. This lodge is ideal for families or for more mature travellers as the facilities at the main lodge are easily accessible from their rooms.
