London , June 21 (ANI): Prince Harry will be heading to the African deserts on a holiday with his soldier friends, it has emerged.

The 23-year-old royal is looking forward to treating his soldier friends to the trip of a lifetime in the dunes of Namibia , southern Africa .

Accompanied with the 23 comrades he served with in Afghanistan , the younger son to Prince Charles will take six days to cross the sandy planes on their way towards the famous Skeleton Coast .

In this survival skills trip, the caravan is going to travel by Land Rover and will spend nights under the stars just like they did when they were in Helmand Province .

He has been excited by the trip for weeks. He sees it as a way of thanking his men and treating them to an experience they will never forget, The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

After this trip, Harry will be taking the group to Lesotho in southern Africa to boost his Aids charity. (ANI)
