We depart from Windhoek after breakfast heading north to Etosha National Park, arguably one of the finest national parks in Africa. The first night is spent inside the park (usually at Halali Rest Camp) with the chance to enjoy the active floodlit waterhole in the evening and the second night just outside the park. Days are spent enjoying game drives searching for some of the many species of game including predators – there are good numbers of lion, leopard and cheetah, along with hyena. Watch out for herds of elephant as they troop to waterholes, along with large herds of plains game from zebra, to wildebeest and towering giraffe. For avid birders, there’s some 340 species. You’ll also have a chance to stand on the vast Etosha Pan with distant horizons and shimmering mirages
We leave Etosha behind and drive via Uis where we stop and chat to some of the Himba and Herero ladies on their market stalls and perhaps have a chance to ask about their traditional ways of life. From here continue to the coastal town of Swakopmund, via a shipwreck near Henties Bay, arriving later in the afternoon.
