Safari Itinerary

Day 1 The Elegant Guesthouse, Windhoek
Upon arrival at Windhoek, transfer to the city and from here onto The Elegant Guesthouse for your first night. Depending on time, perhaps wander around the city or join a sunset horse ride. This afternoon or tomorrow morning, you will meet a tour consultant who will go through your trip and answer any last minute questions you may have.

Day 2 Bagatelle Kalahari Game Ranch, Kalahari Namibia
From Windhoek your self drive adventure starts - head south into the Kalahari Basin, around 3 hours drive. After arrival you can relax, enjoy a self-guided walk or perhaps join a nature drive through the reserve and learn about this beautiful region looking out for some of the desert animals found here crossing the stunning linear dunes and grassy tree-lined valleys.

Day 3-7 Fish River Lodge & 3night Hike, Fish River Canyon
Depart from the Kalahari, driving south to Fish River Canyon. There is time to sit back and enjoy the panoramic view while you sip on a sundowner drink later in the afternoon and watch the sun drop behind the stunning canyon vista. In the evening you can discuss everything there is to know about the tour and after taking in the stylish architecture, the magnificent views and an excellent dinner, your guide will accompany you on your hike.

Day 8-9 Klein-Aus Vista - Desert Horse Inn, Aus
Today, drive to Klein Aus Vista - one of Namibia's best kept secrets. This afternoon perhaps take a walk in the surrounding mountains and appreciate the stunning views and the following day recommend you take a day trip to explore the coastal town of Luderitz, the harsh and windy peninsula, and visit Kolmanskop Ghost Town.

Day 10-11 Tok Tokkie Trials, Namib
Leave Klein Aus and drive north. You should arrive at the farmhouse at 14h00.

Day 12-13 Hoodia Desert Lodge, Sossusvlei
From the end of your Tok Tokkie Hike, continue to Hoodia Desert Lodge. This afternoon relax by the swimming pool and perhaps explore the area on foot. The following day rise early to venture into the dune fields, drive to the 2x4 car park (it’s around 60km from Sesriem Gate) the last 5km is 4x4 only and we do not recommend you drive this yourselves unless you are an experienced 4x4 sand dune driver. From the car park you can take a shuttle or walk the final section to Sossusvlei. Ensure you visit nearby Dead Vlei, where the ancient and skeletal camel thorn trees stand on the white pan with the backdrop of orange sand dunes and blue sky - a photographer’s delight. Return to the lodge via Dune 45, and Sesriem Canyon. Alternatively, you can join an escorted trip with the lodge.

Day 14-15 Swakopmund Sands Hotel, Swakopmund
Drive through the desert to Swakopmund today, en-route you may choose to stop at Walvis Bay to visit the lagoon, a protected RAMSAR wetland site, where you may see the many species of birds including greater and lesser flamingos, pelicans, avocets, plovers and the endemic Damara tern before a short stop at the salt farm. From here, it is a short coastal drive to the historic and adventure seaside town of Swakopmund, where you are based for 2nights. Here you can enjoy a wealth of optional activities – such as desert tours, scenic flights over the dunes and coastline, marine cruises, kayaking, a day trip to Sandwich Harbour, and for the more adventurous – sand boarding, skydiving and quad biking!

Day 16-17 Erindi Old Trader Lodge, Central Namibia
Drive through to Erindi Private Game Reserve where you stay in the lodge for 2nights on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis. You can relax around the waterhole, or perhaps join optional game drives on one of the largest game reserves in Africa.

Day 18 N/a’an ku se Lodge, Central Namibia
Your final night will be spent at N/a’an ku se Lodge, located en route to the airport. We recommend you leave Erindi after breakfast – it will take around 3-4hours to the lodge and this afternoon join a carnivore feeding tour 1 or 2 where you will have the chance to see animals such as lion, leopard, or wild dog, at close quarters.

Day 19 Departure
Time to drop off and take your onward connection at the end of your Namibian adventure.
