Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

While the name suggests walking, Ozondjou (meaning elephant in Herero) Trails refers to the routes the desert-adapted elephants follow in search of food and water. Situated in the middle of Damaraland near the ephemeral Ugab River and EHRA (Elephant-Human Relations Aid) base camp you are perfectly located to encounter these elusive animals.

This is a rustic, stripped-back and proudly eco-friendly camp where the focus is on the incredible setting and the experience more than the accommodation itself. You will meet with members of the local community, enjoy a guided tour with a local farmer and visit the local school before a sundowner walk. The next day you’re off on a full day nature drive, joining EHRA volunteers on patrol in search and study of the ellies. Add a picnic midday and return to camp in time for another epic sunset.

The immersive experience at Ozondjou will leave you with an understanding of these extraordinary animals, allow you to see first-hand how human-wildlife conflict is mitigated and learn the challenges faced by the local farmers with free-roaming wildlife inhabiting the same area. It’s a chance to get involved and experience it for yourself.
