As Namibia’s borders open up to international travelers, Wilderness Safaris Namibia will start welcoming guests to Doro Nawas from November 3, the new Little Kulala on November 6 and Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp from November 16.

Wilderness Safaris will ensure that guests are taken care of every step of the way, in line with the company’s stringent health and cleanliness standards. Its camps accommodate small numbers of guests and, thus, provides ample space for comfortable social distancing. The wide variety of activities on offer, from adventurous e-biking and climbing the iconic Sossusvlei dunes, to discovering rare desert-adapted wildlife on game drives along the Skeleton Coast, also allow for physical distance between guests.

What can guests expect at Little Kulala? Eleven climate-controlled, thatched suites, each with a private plunge pool, as well as a “Star Bed” on the deck for romantic star gazing. To take in the history of the region, visit Doro Nawas, where guests can see geological phenomena, petroglyphs (prehistoric rock engravings) and San rock art at Twyfelfontein, Namibia’s first World Heritage Site. LastlyHoanib Skeleton Coast is a joint venture with the neighboring conservancies of Anabeb, Torra and Sesfontein, and hosts researchers committed to conserving desert-adapted lion, brown hyaena and more.

Pivoting Back to Travel: Phase 4

Are you prepared to guide your clients through the “new normal” of travel? Join us December 15, 2020 from 1pm-2:20pm EST for Pivoting Back to Travel: Phase 4. The upcoming installment of our FREE virtual series will feature presentations from the Cayman Islands, Dominican Republic, and Seabourn on their most up-to-date travel procedures, health & safety protocols they’ve implemented to keep guests safe, activities that are open to visitors, what your clients need to know while on their trip and more! Visit www.pivotingbacktotravel to view the full agenda and register for your FREE pass.

The camps are located in remote areas, which means that camp staff reside there for six weeks at a time and exposure to villages or towns is limited. In accordance with government regulations, staff teams will be monitored daily.

In addition, being able to host guests once again will help Wilderness Safaris continue its community support, as well as its conservation and human-wildlife conflict mitigation efforts in north-west Namibia, both of which have been a key focus for the company during this time.
