Summary of day-by-day itinerary

The trip price excludes flights. Wild about Africa can arrange flights originating from the UK or within Africa on request; please ask us about these. If you are travelling from somewhere other than the UK, we ask that you arrange your own international flights at least as far as Johannesburg in South Africa. We can assist with flights between Johannesburg and Windhoek/Walvis Bay on request.

Learn from specialist guide and conservationist, Dr Flip Stander, and get involved with the Desert Lion Conservation project on this unique Namibia safari.

The Namibia Desert Lion Safari is arranged on request and can be a stand-alone safari; booked in combination with another small-group Namibia safari; or arranged as an add-on to a self-drive or fly-in trip around Namibia. Speak to us for more details on these options.

Day 1 Begin with a restful day in Windhoek, perhaps exploring the colourful town and enjoying its pavement cafes.
Day 2 Transfer by road on a long but scenic drive to Wereldsend base camp, and your first night camping.
Days 3 - 6 Spend your days on a unique and informative safari accompanying wildlife expert and conservationist, Dr Flip Stander, on his daily mission to learn more about the magnificent desert lion. The day-by-day schedule of this safari depends on where Dr Flip Stander and the Desert Lion Conservation project team are working at the time. Days and activities may vary, but accommodation will always be in a comfortable mobile camp set up by a backup crew.
Day 7 A long but interesting drive takes you to Swakopmund for your last night in Namibia.
Day 8 There's time to shop for souvenirs before you are transferred to Walvis Bay Airport for your flight home.
