Accommodation is in five maxi dome tents under shade with single beds with crisp bed linen and en-suite shower and loo.
Today you will depart early to Swakopmund, a picturesque seaside town that has some beautiful guest houses. This makes for a great stop to take advantage of some of the activities on offer and the amazing seafood.

Travel North for a 2 night stay at Damaraland Camp, all meals, local drinks and activities included. Damaraland is a land of stark desert beauty. Morning mists, created by the clash between the icy Atlantic Ocean air and the warm desert air of the Skeleton Coast, glide inland along the canyons, giving sustenance to the flora and fauna of the region. Damaraland Adventurer Camp offers guided nature drives to find the elusive desert-adapted elephant which seasonally frequent the dry bed of the Huab River. There is also a chance of spotting black rhino, cheetah and the shy brown hyena.
