  • Day 1: Namib Desert

    Stop At: Namib-Naukluft National Park, C27, Sesriem Namibia
    We leave Windhoek at 9h00 to allow us enough time to get to our destination before sunset. From Windhoek, we are heading south west, first through the Khomas Hochland Mountains before descending onto the plains of the Namib Desert. The Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world, stretches some 2000kms along the west coast of Namibia, with varying types of terrain, but it is here, in the Sossusvlei region that is known for its enormous sand dunes, and breathtaking photographic opportunities. On arrival at our lodge, we can enjoy a walk and prepare for a relaxing sundowner drink before dinner.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Dinner: Enjoy a delicious buffet at the nearby Sossusvlei Lodge, famous for it's incredible smorgasbord in the Namib Desert
    Accommodation included: Overnight at Desert Quiver Camp in twin rooms with en-suite bathroom with views over the Namib Desert

    Day 2: Explore Sossusvlei & Deadvlei in the Namib Desest

    Stop At: Deadvlei, Sossusvlei, Namib-Naukluft Park Namibia
    A very early start this morning for our Sossusvlei guided excursion. We aim to leave our lodge well before sunrise to ensure that we are one of the first to enter the national park. From Sesriem, we drive further into the desert area, where the early morning light provides excellent opportunities for photography. Once we arrive in the 4x4 car park, we can then explore this area on foot, with a walk around Dead Vlei and Sossusvlei, and for the adventurous, a hike up Big Daddy, the tallest dune in the region, offering breathtaking views of the sand sea that is the Namib Desert. By midday, we make our way back towards Sesriem with a stop at Sesriem Canyon, a small but important landmark for both the human and animal residents of the area. We then make our way back towards our accommodation where we’ll have time to rest and relax before dinner.
    Duration: 6 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast: An early buffet breakfast at the nearby Sossusvlei Lodge
    • Dinner: Enjoy a delicious dinner under the stars at Sossusvlei Lodge

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Tropic of Capricorn Sign, C14 Road, Solitaire Namibia
    From Solitaire, we continue through the ever changing desert landscapes before arriving in Walvis Bay, the main harbor in Namibia.

    Stop At: Walvis Bay, Walvis Bay, Erongo Region
    Here we have the opportunity to visit the Walvis Bay Lagoon, a RAMSAR listed wetland site, famous as the feeding ground for many bird species including the Greater & Lesser Flamingos, as well as the endemic Damara Tern amongst others making it an ornithologist paradise.

    Accommodation included: Overnight at Swakopmund Sands Hotel in twin rooms with en-suite bathroom, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

    Day 4: A free day to explore the Skeleton Coast

    Stop At: Swakopmund, Swakopmund, Erongo Region
    Today is a free day, and the chance to explore at your own pace. For some, this will mean joining a boat cruise in Walvis Bay, where you have a good chance to see some seals and dolphins, for others, this will mean a morning of sandboarding before exploring the dunes on a quad bike, or enjoying an scenic flight before skydiving, and for others, it might be something a little more calm as a leisurely breakfast, a visit to the aquarium before an afternoon scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast.
    Swakopmund is the adventure capital of Namibia and there is certainly something to satisfy everyone. The town itself, an unusual mix of German and Namibian culture offers a relaxed and walkable town centre to enjoy at our own pace. There are good restaurants in both towns, with seafood of course being a specialty.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast: Enjoy breakfast before heading out to explore the day.
    Accommodation included: Overnight at Swakopmund Sands Hotel in twin rooms with en-suite bathroom, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

    Day 5: Damaraland

    Stop At: Damaraland, Damaraland
    We start our day early as our drive takes us north east into Damaraland. Today, we head north up to Henties Bay where we can spot the most recent shipwreck to fall victim to the Benguela current, before heading inland, across the gravel plains for the Namib and north from Uis, with the chance to meet the local people, the Himba, Damara and Herero that call these areas home. Either way, if time allows, in the afternoon we will visit Twyfelfontein (literally translated means ‘doubtful spring’), a UNESCO World Heritage site that is home to over 2500 rock etchings, making it one of the worlds largest collections of rock petroglyphs (alternatively we explore Twyfelfontein tomorrow after elephant tracking).
    Duration: 8 hours

    • Breakfast: An early morning breakfast before hitting the road.
    • Dinner: Enjoy a 3 course dinner with views over Damaraland

    Stop At: Damaraland, Damaraland
    We start the morning with a big breakfast before heading out on an excursion along the ephemeral rivers to explore this remarkable area and search for some animals including the elusive and amazing desert adapted elephants. These animals have amazingly found a way to become accustomed to this semi arid area, and this opportunity to find free roaming desert elephant is a unique one, with these incredible creatures only being found in Namibia and Mali. In addition to the desert elephants, this unique environment offers breathtaking landscapes and with a local guide, we will have the have some incredible landscape photographic opportunities. A chance to relax this afternoon by the pool.
    Duration: 5 hours

    Day 7: Off to safari in Etosha National Park

    Stop At: Etosha National Park, Etosha National Park, Oshikoto Region
    After breakfast, we say goodbye to Damaraland and head north east for Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s premier game parks and wildlife enthusiasts paradise. We enter the park via the Andersson’s gate, on the southern boundary of Etosha and spend the next 3 days exploring. The park itself covers 22,270 kms², and gets its name from the salt pan that makes up approx 23% of the park. Once a massive lake, the Etosha Pan is now mostly dry, with the exception of good rainfall years when the pan fills up enough to become a breeding ground for flamingos that migrate between Walvis Bay and Sua Pan in Botswana.
    This afternoon we enjoy a game drive from the park gate, stopping at some popular (animal) waterholes, before arriving late afternoon at our lodge. Tonight we can relax by the floodlit waterhole, an excellent chance to view those creatures that prefer to be active during the cool of the night.

    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast: A final breakfast in Damaraland before departing.
    • Dinner: A buffet dinner at Okaukuejo restaurant.
    Accommodation included: Overnight at Okaukuejo Resort in double rooms with en-suite bathroom. Spend some time at the floodlit waterhole!

    Day 8: Safari time in Etosha National Park

    Stop At: Etosha National Park, Etosha National Park, Oshikoto Region
    Today will be devoted to exploring the park and maximising our chances for amazing wildlife sightings. We start with an early morning game drive before breakfast. We will then return to the lodge for breakfast. From there, we will continue our search and drive from waterhole to waterhole (especially in the winter months), as they support a rich diversity of animals. These waterholes are one of the most unique aspects of Etosha National Park, and a major attraction for wildlife photographers and animal behaviour experts as the different species of animals, both predator and prey alike, can often be captured (on camera) drinking at the same waterhole.
    Depending on our route, we will return to our lodge, to relax by the lodge waterhole and pool during the hottest part of the day, before continuing our game drives late afternoon to try our luck some more.

    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast: An early (pre sunrise) buffet breakfast at the restaurant before heading out into the park.
    • Dinner: Enjoy a buffet dinner in the restaurant before retreating to the waterhole for some night time viewing.
    Accommodation included: Overnight at Okaukuejo Resort in double rooms with en-suite bathroom. Spend some time at the floodlit waterhole!

    Day 9: End of safari - return to Windhoek

    Stop At: Etosha National Park, Etosha National Park, Oshikoto Region
    Today signals the end of our journey. After an early morning breakfast and a final game drive out of the park, we head back towards Windhoek mid morning.

    Stop At: Okahandja, Okahandja, Otjozondjupa Region
