Lodge safari through Namibia
Welcome to the lodge safari through Namibia! This stage offers mile upon mile of reddish-orange sand dunes that stretch along the deserted Atlantic coast plus a trip along rugged canyons through stunning, almost surreal-seeming desert landscapes. We’ll also spot lions, elephants and hippos in their natural habitats and enjoy pleasantly warm evenings sipping cool drinks on the terraces of luxury lodges. These and more highlights make the sixth stage of the XWORLD tour a real adventure.
