Our tour builds on the success of previous tours in the south of the country. There is plenty of opportunity to meet remote tribal people, totally untouched by the outside world and whose way of life has remained unchanged for centuries. Previous clients have already described the trip as being amongst their greatest travel experiences anywhere. This is very much a tour for the pioneering traveler. Much of the journey will be off road and the distances will be long. Probably the most challenging and rewarding trip offered by us yet.

TOUR ITINERARY:
Day 1: Lubango. Arrive in Lubango and transfer to the hotel. After check-in we take a tour of the city, including a visit to the spectacular Tunda Vala volcanic fissure. Overnight: Somitour Hotel or similar.

Day 2: Namibe. Scenic drive, through the mountains and the breathtaking Lebba Pass to the Atlantic coast and the city of Namibe. Overnight: Diversi Hotel or similar. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 3: Pediva hot springs. A drive through the desert, which allows for excellent wildlife viewing, brings us to Pediva. Take time to lie back and relax, whilst you gaze at the snake eagles soaring above. We camp overnight at the hot springs. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 4: Rock Lodge. We continue our travels through the Namib Desert, en route looking out for the varied wildlife including springbok and ostrich. We spend the night either at Rock Lodge or camping in the Namib Desert. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 5: Flamingo Lodge. Today we travel back to the Atlantic Coast and to the Flamingo Lodge, located 40 km south of the town of Namibe and accessible only by driving along the empty golden beaches. Flamingo is in the middle of 70 km of uninhabited coast, and its hinterland is of highly diverse desert landscapes containing areas of special beauty. A number of optional activities are available, including quadbike tours to nearby sandstone canyons, superb fishing and parasailing. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 6: Flamingo Lodge. A full day at Flamingo to relax, swim or take one of the optional activities on offer. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 7: Baia dos Tigres. Today we continue our adventure, driving south to an extremely remote and little visited corner of Angola, bordering Namibia. As we continue our drive we reach the salt marshes and lagoons of Baía dos Tigres, home to an abundance of bird and marine life. To reach the area we traverse a vast dune scape, a challenging, but equally stunning drive. Overnight camping. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 8: Foz do Cunene. Still hugging the coastline, we carefully navigate a narrow strip of beach with the waters of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and towering dunes on the other, until we reach Cunene. The Cunene is a large perennial river that forms the boundary between south western Angola and Namibia. The lush vegetation makes for a striking contrast with the surrounding desert. The settlement of Foz do Cunene is situated on the banks of the river 6 km from the sea and is within the vast Iona National Park. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 9: Moimba. Today we start our challenging, but rewarding journey northeast, back to Lubango. First we head for the settlement of Moimba. It will take us most of the day to traverse the spectacular Iona National Park, and the drive will be slow. Our experienced guides follow nothing more than the faintest of tracks in the shifting sands. Our determination to visit such a remote corner of the country will be rewarded by having the opportunity to meet with the local people, who are virtually cut off from the outside world. For once this is no cliché, we will almost certainly be amongst only a handful of foreigners that they have encountered. Overnight camping. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 10: Oncócua. These few days of travel in the extreme south must be described as hard and the long off road journeys will not be for everyone. However, the experience of meeting tribes, such as the Himba people, is simply exhilarating. It really is the ‘real’ travellers dream. Overnight camping at Oncócua. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 11: Tapella. Although the distances are relatively short, the journey continues to be slow, as we complete our final off road leg of the trip. Overnight camping. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 12: Chibia. Today we reach the main road that links Namibia with the provincial capital Lubango. As is common throughout Angola, the road is in a very poor condition and in serious need of repair. Again, this trip is not for those who are unable to cope with long and bumpy road journeys. These are however more than made up for by the changing scenery and the possibilities of coming across local people who simply have no concept of tourism. Overnight at lodge or camping at Chibia. Includes: (B, L, D).

Day 13: Quedas da Hungueria. As we enter our final leg of this unique tour we will make our last overnight camping stop at the waterfall of Hungueria. The setting is superb, made even more special by the fact that so few travellers have ever visited the area. Overnight camping. Includes: (B, L, D).

For even the well-travelled, the trip will have been full of unique experiences, sights and the most genuine of encounters with a remarkable people and culture. Overnight: Somitour Hotel or similar. Includes: (B).

Day 15: Lubango. Transfer to the airport for your international flight.
