Safari Itinerary

Day 1 Haus Garnison, Swakopmund
After meeting your guides, the rest of the day is a free day to enjoy adventure, explore Swakopmund or simply enjoy a great bake at a local coffee shop. Swakopmund offers all the conveniences of a little city and there is something to keep everyone busy. This welcome brush with civilization is the perfect launching pad as we venture to the Namib Desert tomorrow morning.

Day 2 Hammerstein Lodge or Betesda Lodge, nr Sesriem
Leaving behind the charms of Swakopmund we continue our journey to Southern Namibia and the Namib Desert. We make a short stop in Walvis Bay this morning before turning east toward the heart of the desert. Our afternoon will be spent with a local guide who will introduce us to the wonders of the desert environment. An early night is advisable as tomorrow we will see us up as the dawn breaks.

Day 3 Hammerstein Lodge, Sesriem
Rising with the first light we travel to Sesriem, the gateway to Sossusvlei dune fields. We enter the park early and make a stop to climb the famous Dune 45. Having stretched our legs, we continuedeeper into the Dune fields and take a 4x4 transfer to the marvels of Sossusvlei. We take time to visit both Sossusvlei and Deadvlei before bidding the dune field farewell. Our final stop before continuing to our camp is the interesting Sesriem Canyon, a remnant of much wetter times in this dry region.

Day 4 Ai Ais Resort, Fish River Canyon
Today we travel south on the gravel byways of Southern Namibia on route to Ai-Ais. Famed for its hot springs, the resort and its hot pools are the perfect tonic to ease away the dust of the Namib, an evening swim under the Desert stars is not to be missed. Tomorrow will again be an early start as we aim to catch the morning light as it filters into the Fish River Canyon.

Day 5 Felix Unite or Norotshama, Gariep/Orange River
As dawn breaks, we head out towards Hobas and the Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world. The early hours of the morning offer great photographic opportunities as the morning light filters into the canyon. We will spend time exploring the rim of the canyon, before making for the Orange River and our final stop in Namibia. Our last night in Namibia is spent on the banks of the Orange River and the best way to experience the Orange River is by canoe. This afternoon you will have th opportunity to partake in an optional canoe trip on the river.

Day 6 Markuskraal, Citrusdal, South Africa
A final border crossing sees us enter South Africa this morning as we travel through the desert landscapes of Namaqualand on our way to the Cedarberg region. The Cedarberg is the home of Rooibos tea, which has become a popular beverage throughout the world. Tonight we enjoy a traditional South African meal and celebrate the many memories we have made.

Day 7 End of tour
This morning after breakfast the tour ends.
