A private safari into the African wilderness. Explore the remote Skeleton Coast and experience Namibia's successful conservancy program.

The Skeleton Coast and Kaokoland are Namibia’s most remote regions, with access allowed only to those few who know the area intimately.  An area free of game fences and home to some of the most specialized mammals on earth, including desert adapted black rhino, elephant and lions, these areas are also home to the ancient Himba culture.  This combined with some of the most spectacular scenery in Namibia makes for what must be one of the most authentic and pioneering safaris available in Namibia.

This safari is unique in every way and every experience has been carefully considered to give you, the traveler, the most authentic insight into this region possible.  You will stay in conservancy owned or conservancy-private sector joint venture luxury accommodations. You will have your own professional and experienced conservation and conservancy orientated naturalist guide who will enhance your experience of this unique region by making it a fascinating and ‘hands-on’ journey of discovery amidst very dramatic scenery and experiences.  Your naturalist guide will have an intimate knowledge of each area and camp/lodge that you visit, allowing him to share the local highlights while adding continuity and depth to your safari.  The presence and companionship of your guide will turn your safari into an experience of a lifetime!
