Day3 - 5
After breakfast you will be transferred back to the airstrip in time to board your scheduled light aircraft flight into the heart of Damaraland. You will then be transferred from the airstrip to Camp Kipwe (approximately 30 minute drive) in time for lunch. The rest of the afternoon can be spent on a guided excursion to visit the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein (a World Heritage Site) and the interesting geological sites of the local area around the lodge. You will return to the camp before sunset with time to freshen up before dinner. We would recommend pre-dinner drinks on Kipwe’s sundowner rock, a short stroll from the camp, for stunning views of the surroundings at sunset.
You will be treated to an exciting 4x4 excursion along the ephemeral Aba Huab River valley to explore this remarkable region and to search for game, especially the elusive desert adapted elephants if they are in the area. Damaraland is home to a variety of desert adapted wildlife and hidden desert treasures.
