    With family roots in Kenya, it became a continent I have naturally gravitated towards. I’ve traveled extensively around East and Southern, working with luxury camps, guides, and rangers for over eight years. I am enthralled by Africa and would happily talk about this diverse continent’s wildlife, cultures and experiences all day, every day.

      Little KualaLittle kuala2

      This morning you will be picked up from your hotel in Windhoek and transferred to the domestic airport. You will check in and go through safety briefings before enjoying a scenic flight in a light aircraft plane. On arrival into Kuala, you will be met by your safari guide and the adventure begins! Drive in a 4×4 safari jeep to the luxury lodge, Little Kuala.

      For the next couple of days, you will enjoy all that Little Kuala has to offer. Your luxury suite has a very spacious and well-appointed lounge area and private veranda. On the deck, a day bed and a private plunge pool awaits, and at night, the staff roll the bed out onto the deck so that you can sleep under the stars. The main area has a swimming pool and plenty of lounge areas including a library and decking platforms, where you can enjoy drinks and dinner served by the dedicated staff at all times.

      Skeleton Coast Camp

      Hoanib2Hoanib

      You will fly from Kuala up north to Hoanib. This is a true desert oasis in a land that seems uninhabitable, but a few days here and you will soon learn that wildlife in all forms and sizes live, and have adapted here. Desert-adapted lions and elephants are among these incredible species who have adapted, and if you’re lucky, your guide will be able to find these for you over the three days here. You can also do a day excursion to the Skeleton Coast.

      The Skeleton Coast is an eerily beautiful region where the vast desert meets the crashing waves of the Atlantic. Stretching for 300 miles, it’s littered with shipwrecks. One of the world’s driest places, the cold ocean currents form a dense fog that often covers the coast, confusing captains who ultimately left their vessels behind.
