The Journey Through Northern Namibia commences at a secluded wildlife reserve spanning 60,000 acres (24,000 hectares), where you will be accommodated at Safarihoek Lodge for a duration of two nights. The Etosha Heights Private Reserve is situated on a hilltop with a panoramic view of the expansive savannah in northern Namibia. This reserve is inhabited by several wildlife species including elephants, lions, giraffes, and both black and white rhinos. The exclusive ambiance allows for the enhancement of morning and afternoon wildlife drives through the inclusion of guided walks and night drives illuminated by spotlights.
