Itinerary

Map Image
icon Day 1: Arrive Windhoek (1 Night)

Location: Windhoek

Accommodation: Safari Court

Meals: Dinner

Welkom (welcome) to Windhoek! Namibia's vibrant capital city is a study in contrasts, with rolling green hills and sleepy suburbs surrounding a modern city that highlights a unique mix of African, Dutch and German influences. After touching down, you'll connect with your Costsaver representative before joining your Travel Director and fellow guests for a welcome briefing and dinner at the hotel.

icon Day 2: Windhoek - Otjiwa (1 Night)

Accommodation: Otjiwa Safari Lodge

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Jump into the morning bustle for an orientation tour around Windhoek to visit the Christuskirch, Alte Feste and Tintenpalast. Then, swap the city for the bush as you head to Otjiwa, Namibia's oldest game farm, where you can hop on an afternoon game drive. Or, consider joining a guided hike around the lodge to take in the scenery and stretch your legs. After dinner at the lodge, the evening is yours. Relax in your room or consider adventuring into the night for a drive around the property to spot nocturnal animals.

icon Day 3: Otjiwa - Etosha National Park Area (2 Nights)

Accommodation: Etosha Safari Camp

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today, you'll glimpse into the lives of the Herero people, a semi-nomadic tribe that has retained its traditional dress, customs and culture. Discover how they make a livelihood on tending livestock, and meet some of the tribe members. Chock full of stories, you'll stop for lunch (and pastries!) at Outjo's famous bakery. Then head to your accommodation to rest up before tomorrow's full-day safari in Etosha National Park.

icon Day 4: Etosha National Park Full Day Safari

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Open grasslands, a salt pan that can be seen from space and an amazing amount of wildlife make Etosha National Park an unforgettable safari experience. Spend a full day exploring the park in your touring vehicle or opt to join our guided game drive on an open safari vehicle. Either way, you'll be astounded by the park's shimmering horizons and abundant elephant, wildebeest, zebra and springbok. As the sun sets, cruise back to enjoy dinner and perhaps drinks in the lodge's traditional shebeen (informal bar).

icon Day 5: Etosha National Park Area - Erongo Region (1 Night)

Accommodation: Hohenstein Lodge

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

A leisurely morning will let you soak in the final views of Etosha before heading to the Erongo region. You'll hop out for a wine tasting in Omaruru, where locals produce tasty wines despite the high desert environment. Then head to your lodge at the base of the Erongo Mountains. Spend your afternoon relaxing or consider joining a guided hike. If you want an even more relaxed evening, take a sundowner drive to watch the sun set with a drink in hand.

icon Day 6: Erongo Region - Swakopmund (2 Nights)

Location: Swakopmund

Accommodation: Swakopmund Sands

Meals: Breakfast

Swap one natural marvel for another as you leave the mountains behind and travel to the seaside town of Swakopmund. Before heading out, spend the morning enjoying a leisurely breakfast or opt to visit a local San village to get a glimpse of daily life in the bush. Continue on to Swakopmund, where your Travel Director will give an orientation tour before letting you loose to stroll the bustling promenade or sample some of Namibia's culinary specialities. To see a different side of the town, sign up for a scenic flight that takes you over spectacular rolling dunes and rocky coast.

icon Day 7: Swakopmund Free Day

Meals: Breakfast

Swakopmund is yours to explore today! If you're feeling sporty, why not spend it speeding down local dunes on a sandboarding or quad biking adventure. Or hop on a Living Desert Tour for a half-day expedition to discover how the local wildlife survive in this seemingly deserted environment. But if the sea is calling, hop on a catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay to Pelican Point for a chance to catch sight of curious seals, dolphins, pelicans, or even the 'Marine Big 5'.

icon Day 8: Swakopmund - Sesriem (2 Nights)

Location: Sesriem

Accommodation: Hammerstein Lodge

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Set your sights on the dramatic red dunes of Sossusvlei, with no shortage of adventure along the way! First up are the brilliant pink flamingos in Walvis Bay. Then you'll head up Dune 7, the highest sand dune in the Namib Desert, to see the vast landscape below. Your journey continues across the Tropic of Capricorn to your accommodation for the next two days. If you're keen to explore, spend the afternoon on a guided nature drive with a Local Specialist.

icon Day 9: Sossusvlei - Deadvlei - Sesriem Canyon Excursion

Location: Sesriem

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Start today in the surreal beauty of Sossusvlei and its surrounds as you head out before dawn to try and catch the sun rising over the park's giant red dunes. After, hop on a 4X4 ride to Deadvlei, where century-old camelthorn trees create an awe-inspiring contrast against the white-clay pan. Then, tighten your boots for a hike to the top of the tallest dune in the area, Big Daddy, before a visit to the towering rock formations of Sesriem Canyon. To top it all off, consider hopping on a sundowner drive to toast another epic day.

icon Day 10: Sesriem - Windhoek (1 Night)

Location: Windhoek

Accommodation: Safari Court

Meals: Breakfast

You'll coast back to Windhoek today, where your Namibian adventure first began. Stop in the historic town of Rehoboth along the way, which has remained autonomous despite its tumultuous past. Once back in Windhoek, settle into your hotel or opt to spend your final night at one of Windhoek's most famous beer houses.

icon Day 11: Depart Windhoek

Meals: Breakfast

With memories of natural wonders, endless sky and magnificent wildlife, it's time to say farewell to Namibia. Enjoy breakfast before heading to the airport for your flight onward. Safe travels!
