Planeta Azul’s Namibia experience will take you right into the heart of the oldest desert on the face of the planet. Visiting and climbing to the top of the iconic giant sand dunes, is a singularly romantic experience that feels lifted right out of a movie. You’ll also be able to take in the full majesty of this region during a hot-air balloon ride, soaring over the Sossusvlei valley.
Country of spellbinding contrasts
The country’s Skeleton Coast is where the desert meets the sea. So named for the many shipwrecks that dot the beaches, this unique habitat is also a refuge for seal colonies and especially the rare Brown Hyena, locally known as Strandwolf or ‘beach wolves’. After some rest and relaxation at a picturesque and fully equipped campsite in the region, we’ll head to Namibia’s most important national park. Etosha, with its numerous natural watering-holes is a refuge for many emblematic large and small mammals, with elephants, zebra, antelope, lions and giraffe depending on the season.
All the romanticism of this remote and sparsely populated country makes Namibia the perfect choice for a safari with a difference.
Three reasons why
Making memories. A safari is simply an unforgettable experience. Having the privilege to explore some of the planets’ last remaining wilderness, and seeing the wildlife and countryside first hand, feels like being inside a nature documentary. Truly a one of a kind experience.
Perfect pictures. The sheer natural beauty of the landscapes, and being able to observe the unique wildlife up close, makes this a perfect experience for photographers of all levels.
Escape the mundane. For most, travel is an opportunity to break out of our routines, to disconnect and engage with the wider world. On safari you’ll be completely in the moment, away from screens and distractions, giving you the escape you need to return, recharged and energised.
It doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of the savannah, the jungle or in the heart of the wild, at every point in your journey you’ll receive the comfort, luxury, privacy, top class attention to detail and organisation you’d expect, thanks to the exclusive lodgings and accommodations selected for you by Planeta Azul.
Where luxury and the wilderness meet.
At Planeta Azul, we believe that the more extreme the experience, and more intense the emotions lived, the better you appreciate the finer things in life. Because the journey doesn’t end after a full day on Safari. Continue the adventure with a rejuvenating full body massage or beauty treatment, followed by dinner prepared by one of our skilled chefs. After dinner, unwind with top of the range leisure facilities before turning in for the night in luxury lodgings, with all the amenities you could wish for. A perfect end to a perfect day, setting you up perfectly to experience it all again tomorrow.
