Summary of day-by-day itinerary

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 can easily be arranged as a stand-alone safari; in combination with another small-group Namibia safari or 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 An overnight scheduled flight with South African Airways takes you from London to Windhoek, via Johannesburg.
Day 2 Begin with a restful day in Windhoek, perhaps exploring the colourful town and enjoying its pavement cafes.
Day 3 Transfer by road on a long but scenic drive to Wereldsend base camp where you meet the rest of your safari group.
Days 4 - 7 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 8 A long but interesting drive takes you back to Windhoek for your last night in Namibia.
Day 9 There's time to shop for souvenirs before you are transferred to Windhoek Airport for your flight home.
Day 10 Arrive back in London after an amazing safari where you played a part in the conservation of Namibia's desert lion.
