Sand dune in Sossusvlei, Namibia.Wilderness Explorations, the guided journey division of Wilderness Safaris, introduced Desert Dune Safari, a new itinerary for 2015. The fully guided, nine-night adventure will take guests through some of Namibia’s varied and remote desert areas, experiencing a diverse range of activities along the way. Guests will enjoy sea- and land-based wildlife viewing, rhino tracking, views of the secluded and dramatic coastline of the Skeleton Coast and a scenic flight from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund (weather permitting).

“This Exploration was designed to make the most of Namibia’s vast and contrasting landscapes,” said Dave Bennett, Wilderness Safaris’ chief sales officer. “Many of these areas are rarely explored by others, so guests will be able to experience an unparalleled sense of remoteness while enjoying the spectacular scenery and desert-adapted wildlife.”

Operating from May until mid-November, the Desert Dune Safari covers the desert areas of Sossusvlei, the Skeleton Coast and the Palmwag Concession and is led by Wilderness Safaris guides. Guests are accommodated in a range of lodges, including several Wilderness Safaris camps, such as Desert Rhino Camp and the newly opened Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp.

Wilderness Explorations are fully serviced cross-country safaris that cater to small groups (between two and eight guests) on a scheduled basis or are tailored for private groups.
