Abenteuer Afrika Offers the Best of Nambia

SWAKOPMUND, NAMIBIA (09/06) – Until a few months ago, Namibia was one of the world’s best kept secrets. Now it has become a preferred tourism destination as travelers discover its wide open spaces, dramatic geography, pristine environment, cultural diversity, good service and an excellent infrastructure. It is a country like no other.

Abenteuer Afrika, the largest destination management company in Namibia, that orchestrated the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt ground arrangements on their recent stay, offers a number of tours for individuals and groups that showcase the very best of Namibia. .

Owned and operated by Dianne Orban and Hilmar Tonnemacher, Namibian nationalists with a hospitality industry background, Abenteuer Afrika operates tours throughout the country. That includes the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world; Sossusvlei with the highest sand dunes in the world; Etosha National Park, one of the largest game parks in Africa, the Skeleton Coast with its tempestuous coastline; Windhoek, the capital city full of cultural and historical attractions; and much more. Their specialty is to customize a Namibia journey to the client’s specifications.
Some examples of tours include:

“Southern Delight,” a three day/two night air round trip charter to Sossusvlei. Fly over spectacular landscapes and the Atlantic coastline to the Sossusvlei Lodge, a luxurious desert resort for two nights. Enjoy an early morning drive and picnic breakfast in the Sossusvlei exploring the dunes and the extraordinary life of the desert before returning to Swakopmund or Windhoek. Rates for the package range from $775*, per person with two people traveling together, depending on the season.

“Fabulously Namibia” includes a seven day/six night fully inclusive experience. The first stop on the charter flight is one night in the luxurious villas of Sossusvlei Mountain Lodge, in the eerily beautiful Namib Desert. The second night is spent at The Stiltz, a lodge built on stilts at the edge of the Swakop River mouth. The following two nights are at the Okonjima Lodge in African-style chalets. The lodge is in a reserve run by the AfriCat Foundation so there is the possibility of tracking leopards and cheetahs. The final stop is Etosha National Park, Namibia’s premier wildlife area where you will stay for two nights at Ongava Lodge, luxurious chalets at the edge of the park and overlooking a very busy water hole, where wildlife comes to drink. The final day, you return to Windhoek by your chartered flight. All inclusive rates (including the charter) range from $4,450*, per person with two people traveling together, depending on the season.

The “Desert Express Rail Experience & Coastal Thrills” is a train journey like no other. The Desert Express departs in the early afternoon in Windhoek. Later, the train stops at a private reserve while passengers go on a game drive. A gourmet dinner is served on board as the train moves during the night into the desert and stops at a quiet siding overnight. Awakening in the morning, travelers see the desert at its best – as a mystical place. The next stop on the train is Swakopmund, a charming town with a number of activities. Package rates for one night on the Desert Express and two nights in the Swakopmund Hotel range from $530* per person with two people traveling together.
