Tour Overview

The scenic beauty of Namibia is only matched by its diversity. Deep canyons, towering sand dunes, otherworldly rock formations and vast salt pans seamlessly merge into each other in an endlessly shifting landscape. The sky seems particularly big here with spectacular sunsets and, at night, the sight of billions of stars twinkling overhead. This is the backdrop for healthy wildlife populations and a melting pot of different communities.

Itinerary

icon Day 1 : Start Windhoek.

Location: Windhoek

Accommodation: Arebbusch Lodge or similar

Meals: No Meals

The tour starts at the Arebbusch Lodge in Windhoek. Those on group flights
will be picked up at the airport and we will drive into town for an hour or
so. In town everyone will have a chance to change money and pick up any
supplies they may need; this is also an opportunity for our guides to buy
fresh food. We will then drive to our lodge. The afternoon can be spent
exploring or relaxing.

icon Day 2 : Drive through Namib Nuakluft to Sesriem.

Location: Namib-Naukluft National Park

Accommodation: Solitaire Guest Farm or similar

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today we head southwest through the spectacular scenery of the Namib-Naukluft
Park towards the Sesriem/Solitaire area. This national park, one of the
largest in the world, is home to one of the driest and oldest deserts on
earth. It contains the finest desert scenery in Africa, if not in the world,
with towering jagged rock formations and an incredible lunar landscape so be
prepared for some great photo stops. (driving 300-350kms/7hrs)


icon Day 3 : Sossusvlei and the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre

Location: Sossusvlei

Accommodation: Solitaire Guest Farm or similar

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Today we spend much of today in the Namib Desert. Rising early we catch the
tallest sand dunes in the world in the morning light and have the opportunity
to climb one of the dunes for fantastic views. We can either walk to
Hiddenvlei or catch a transfer (optional extra) to Deadvlei where ancient
acacia trees in the desert form an eerie scene. If we’re lucky we may see
gemsbok or ostrich among the sand dunes. In the afternoon we visit Sesriem
Canyon before joining a guide to see the cheetahs at the Namib Carnivore
Conservation Centre (please see Responsible Travel section) - depending on
time we may go tomorrow morning. (driving 200kms/3hrs)


icon Day 4 : To Swakopmund via Walvis Bay.

Location: Swakopmund

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Prost Hotel or similar

Meals: Breakfast

A long but very scenic drive through the Namib-Naukluft Park to Swakopmund.
En route we visit Walvis Bay for lunch and to see local flamingos. Swakopmund
is a small German colonial resort town with quaint cake shops and coffee
houses and a centre for adrenaline activities. (driving 300kms /5.5hrs).


icon Day 5 : Free day for optional activities.

Location: Swakopmund

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Prost Hotel or similar

Meals: Breakfast

Today is a free day to enjoy one of the many optional activities on offer in
and around town. At sea you can go deep-sea fishing, in the desert you can go
sand-boarding and quad-biking and in the sky you can fly over the skeleton
coast. Or if none of these appeal you can spend the day enjoying the
fantastic Viennese style cakes, walk along the beach or in the nearby dunes
or just enjoy watching the world go-by in this town which seems strangely out
of place in Africa.


icon Day 6 : Brandberg

Location: Brandberg Mountain

Accommodation: Brandberg Whilte Lady Lodge or similar

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After a relaxing start we leave the cool breeze of the Atlantic Ocean behind
and head inland towards Namibia’s highest mountain, Brandberg, in
Damaraland. The Damaraland area is famous for the desert elephants which roam
in the Ugab River. Star gazing is normally spectacular from this remote area
(240kms / 3.5hrs).

icon Day 7 : White Lady Painting & Vingerklip

Location: Fingerklippe

Accommodation: Outjo Lodge or similar

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

We begin our day with a short drive to Brandberg, where we will enjoy a walk
through valley 45 for approximately 1.5 hours. Along the way we will view
beautiful, granite rock formations and a variety of birdlife. The valley
takes us to the famous ‘White Lady’ rock painting which, along with a
number of other small paintings and engravings, are thought to have been left
by Bushmen at least 2000 years ago. Afterwards we will drive towards the
Khorixas area where we should pass various Himba and Herero women selling
crafts from the roadside. There is also the possibility of spotting Desert
elephants and meerkats on the way. We will arrive at our accommodation after
lunch and then in the afternoon we can view Vingerklip, a striking pinnacle
of rock balancing vertically on its own (driving 250kms / 4.5hrs).


icon Day 8 : To Etosha N.P.

Location: Etosha National Park

Accommodation: Okaukuejo or similar

Meals: Breakfast

Today we begin with a short drive to Etosha. We should arrive at Etosha in
time for a late afternoon game drive before arriving at our accommodation for
the night. The itinerary allows plenty of time to really enjoy this fabulous
game park. (driving 200kms / 3hrs)


icon Day 9 -10 : Two days gameviewing in Etosha.

Location: Etosha Pan

Accommodation: Namutoni or similar

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Etosha is a huge park of mixed forest and grassland centred around a large
salt pan. Etosha is home to a great variety species, which are generally easy
to find as the animals congregate at different times around the waterholes.
Wildebeest, zebra, impala, springbuck, kudu, elephant, giraffe, lion and even
rhino are all common sights here. Take plenty of camera memory and lots of
patience and you will be rewarded by one of the greatest game spectacles in
Southern Africa. Etosha is also a good place for birds, with plenty of water
birds on the lakes (when filled with water), and weaverbirds and hornbills in
the trees. While in Etosha we typically stay within the park on some or all
of the nights (subject to availability) and some of these are located next to
waterholes. These camps also offer optional night drives which you can book
and pay for on arrival.

**Meals included*: *Breakfast (x2), Lunch (x1)

icon Day 11 : On to the Waterberg Plateau. Optional 4x4 game drive.

Location: Waterberg Plateau

Accommodation: Waterberg or similar

Meals: Breakfast

Leaving Etosha behind, we head towards the Waterberg Plateau. This 200 metre
high gigantic flat-topped plateau with bushveld on top is one of Namibia’s
most fertile areas. There are several walking trails, including one leading
to a spectacular viewpoint near the top of the plateau offering a great view
of the surrounding area. It is also possible to do an optional 4x4 game
drive. (driving 300kms / 5hrs)


icon Day 12 : Waterberg Plateau and on to Windhoek

Location: Windhoek

Accommodation: Hotel

Accommodation Name: Utopia Boutique Hotel or similar

Meals: No Meals

We have some free time this morning to relax or explore the Waterberg Plateau
a little further. Later we head back to Windhoek stopping at a crafts market
on the way. (driving 320kms / 4.5hrs).


icon Day 13 : End Windhoek.

Location: Windhoek

Meals: Breakfast

The trip ends after breakfast. Those on the group flights will be taken to
the airport in time for their flight home. Free time can be spent relaxing at
the accommodation or exploring Windhoek where there are museum and shopping

A fantastic group and wonderful leader team obviously helped but even without those this is an amazing country with spectacular vistas, ever surprising and wonderful wildlife and all under the bluest of blue skies.

There is some amazing variety from the dry salt pans to the mountainous shifting dunes, huge landscapes that reach past the horizon, the strange charm of the coast and Swakopmund, the ever smiling people, the ease of travel, the facilities at the campsites and the wildlife.

seeing the waterhole in the Etosha camp for the first time was a hairs on the back of the neck moment.
