This 10 day safari will take you to many of the must-see natural wonders. Our 10-day CME Safari Adventure will take you on a journey through the awe-inspiring desert landscapes of Namibia. You’ll have the opportunity to witness incredible wildlife up close and personal, including elephants, lions, and giraffes, and to explore some of the most breathtaking natural wonders in the world.
Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib. It is one of the top tourist destinations in all of southern Africa and a must-see attraction when visiting Namibia. Sossusvlei itself is actually the pan or valley floor that we will park our vehicle on, and is surrounded by massive dunes on almost all sides. Enjoy some of the many highlights that surround Sossusvlei itself: Dune 45, the most photographed dune on earth and Deadvlei, a paradise for photographers, as it is punctuated by blackened, dead acacia trees, in vivid contrast to the shiny white of the salty floor of the pan and the intense orange of the dunes
Undoubtedly one of the great parks of Africa, the huge Etosha National Park in north-central Namibia covers more than 22,300 km2 (8,620 sq mi) and is synonymous with big game and wide open spaces. The name Etosha actually means “great white place” referring to the massive (130km long and 50km wide) dry pan in the middle of the park, believed to have been formed over 100 million years ago.
Etosha not only boasts some fantastic mammals, but also has a bird list of more than 350 species, including regional specials like Kori Bustard, Blue Crane, Violet Woodhoopoe, Ruppell’s Parrot, Pygmy and Red-necked Falcon, Bare-cheeked and Southern Pied Babbler, and Burchell’s and Double-banded Courser. We will naturally look for these on our drives in the park, as well as around our lodge grounds.
