We leave the capital city in our wake heading north, stopping at Okahandja to try our hand at bartering for wooden curios, and arrive at our destination later in the afternoon. There’s a chance to join an optional activity – perhaps find out about the AfriCat Foundation programme and learn about conservation of predators in Namibia
Two nights are spent in the magnificent Etosha National Park and this unique game park offers some of the best game viewing in all Africa. We will head out for game drives and spend our evenings at the abundant waterholes hoping to see some of the 114 species of animals that thrive here.
We continue our game drives this morning and and exit the park. There’s a chance to meet with some of the local Himba tribes – one of the most photographed tribes in Namibia, where the ladies cover themselves in ochre and butterfat, from here continue to camp arriving in the afternoon
From here we head to the ancient landscapes of Twyfelfontein where a local guide to takes us to the open–air gallery at Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site to see ancient Bushman Etchings, one of the largest collections in southern Africa.
En–route to the coast we pass the soaring peak of Namibia’s highest mountain, Brandberg and more of Damaraland’s beautiful scenery before visiting Cape Cross where over 100,000 Cape Fur seals congregate during breeding season, we then head south along the Skeleton Coast road to Namibia’s largest coastal town, Swakopmund.
