Honeymoon Idea: Dazzling Namib Desert SafariJune 28, 2019
Escape to Namibia for an adventurous and utterly romantic Namib desert safari that could just be the perfect destination for your honeymoon.
The Namib Desert occupies the whole of western Namibia and is recognised across the globe as a particularly impressive desert. In fact, it wears the crown for the oldest desert and has some of the highest dunes in the world.
Along with breath-taking landscape views and photogenic sunsets, desert ecosystems like those in the NamibRand Nature Reserve and Namib-Naukluft National Park, are home to a surprisingly wide range of fascinating fauna and flora.
Travellers can enjoy a luxury Namib desert safari, checking into elegant lodges and camps that fit seamlessly into their surrounding environment in design, furnishings and ethos of sustainability.
We take a look at what your Namib desert safari honeymoon could look like:
NamibRand Nature Reserve
The NamibRand Nature Reserve is a privately-owned game reserve in the southern Namib Desert on the edge of the famous Sossusvlei salt and clay pan. Wolwedans Boulders Safari Camp is a well-appointed oasis off the beaten track which savours the remote peace and tranquility of this desert safari destination.
This is one of the least light-polluted places in the world so stargazing here beneath the constellations of the Southern Hemisphere is magical. The NamibRand Nature Reserve is known for its diverse landscapes, which includes almost all facets of the Namib Desert, and a unique way to see these is in a hot-air balloon soaring across the sky at dawn.
A very special sight is the intriguing ‘fairy circles’ found in the arid grasslands of the Namib Desert. As concessions to the reserve are limited, you won’t be forced to share this Namib desert safari experience with crowds of tourists.
Namib-Naukluft National Park
The Namib-Naukluft National Park is best-known for the Sossusvlei and Sesriem along with the striking Naukluft Mountains. In fact, these are the only areas of the park that are accessible so, like the NamibRand Nature Reserve, the Namib-Naukluft National Park is an incredibly isolated desert region of Namibia.
Little Kulala Camp by Wilderness Safaris is found in a prime location along the dry Auab River in the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve. It epitomizes nature’s beauty and the particular solitude of the Namib Desert, which can be enjoyed from the romantic Star Bed found on the roof of each private villa.
Staying at Little Kulala means access to Sossusvlei via an exclusive gate, where you can take guided drives, walks and eco-friendly quad biking over this stunning desert landscape. Hot-air ballooning over the Namib-Naukluft National Park is a favourite of all guests and a must if you choose a Namib desert safari for your honeymoon.
