Safari Itinerary

Day 1&2 Namib Desert Lodge / Namib Naukluft area
You'll be collected from your accommodation by your guide and depart from Windhoek at around 08h30am. Driving through the rugged Khomas Hochland mountain range we descend to the desert floor before continuing onto the lodge and perhaps climb a petrifield dune to enjoy a stunning sunset over the everchanging colours of this deset. It's a predawn separture the following morning to drive to the gate and onto the heart of the dunes to explore Sussusvlei in early morning light. The shadows on the sand dunes as the su lifts over the apricot dunes in the heart of the famous dune sea of Namibia, is nothing short of spectacular. Climb a dune close to Sossusvlei then walk to Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a blackdrop of huge orange-red dunes. Enjoy a mid morning brunch after exploring this dramatic and desolate landscape before returning to our lodge. Enjoy another stunning sunset surrounded by this colourful desert and sleep under bright stars of the southern hemisphere.


Day 3&4 Swakopmund Sands Hotel, Swakopmund
Early morning departure from Sesriem, stopping at the quaint town of Solitaire before continuing through the desert wilth its endless views across the pastel-coloured gravel plaints to the port town of Walvis Bay. We visit the lagoon, a protected RAMSAR wetland site where we may see the many species of birds including greater and lesser flamingos, pelicans, avocets, plovers and the endermic Damara tern before a short stop at the salt farm. From here continue onto Swakopmund, full of historic buildings and where your guide will assist those wishing to book optional adventure activities such as sand boarding, quad biking, scenic flights, kayaking, marine cruises to name but a few, which you have time for this afternoon and tomorrow. Alternatively walk along the beach or visit the museum and aquarium, enjoy coffee and cake at one or the many cafes or wander along the beach listening to the roar of the waves of the mighty Atlantic ocean - the choice is yours.

Day 5 Twyfelfontein Country Lodge, Damaraland
We leave after breakfast and head north along the Skeleton Coast past the gravel plains and desert opening up around us with the ocean crashing down onto the shore, stopping south of Henties Bay to view a shipwreck near the shore before continuing onto Cape Cross. This is home of thousands of Cape fur seals where during breeding season over 100,000 are crammed onto the beach fighting for space. We retrace our steps to Henties Bay and turn inland driving past Brandberg, the highest point in Namibia and a huge massif rising up ove the plains to Twyfelfontein and later this afternoon visit to the rock etching with a local guide who will explain the history and importance of these etchigs is included.

Day 6-9 Etosha National Park
Day 6 Dolomite Camp
Day 7-9 Okaukuejo / Halali

Today's destination is the incredible Etosha National Park and we spend 4 nights in the park to maximize our game viewing experiences. The first day enter at Galton Gate (lunch is served by your guide near the gate) and spend in the western aspect at Dolomite Camp, beautiful camp in a superb location and a night in accommodation here there's the chance of spotting animals such as baboon, mountain zebra and other species not found further east. From here, game drive across the park to famous Okaukuejo - world renowned for its active floodlit waterhole. Relax here at sunset and watch the game wander in to drink. The following day search for black rhino, elephant, lion, hyena and leopard. Etosha is recognised as one of the best game parks in Southern Africa with huge numbers of plains game, lion, prides and large elephant herds as well as the diminutive and cute Damara dik-dik - the smallest antelope in the world.

Day 10 Onguma Treetops, Onguma Private Game Reserve
Game drive across Etosha leaving from Von Lindequist Gate; turn immediately into Onguma Private Game Reserve, adjacent to Fishchers Pan on the eastern aspect of the park. This terrific reserve offers great game viewing and you have the choice of either joining a guided nature walk on the reserve or a sundowner excursion in an open vehicle with a guide from the lodge. (Note the walk may take place the following morning). There's a greater waterhole, swimming pool, bar and restaurant on site, as well as curio shop! Treetop camp is located in the heart of the reserve, has just 4 permanent tented chalets set upon stilts with a central guest area where you can watch your dinner being prepared or relax overlooking the waterhole.

Day 11 Okonjima Plains Camp
After a final game to the gate, head south for a final night at Okonjima, situated halfway between the capital Windhoek and Etosha National Park, the 55,000 acre Okonjima Game Reserve for many guests is a highlight to the holiday. This afternoon choose which activity suits your interests best (this is discussed upon arrival so you don't need to worry about which one to join before you arrive) - and where you have the chance to see rehabilitated cheetah, wild dog, hyena or leopard and see these beautiful carnivores in their natural habitat. Generally considered as one of the best destinations in Namibia

Day 12 Windhoek - airport
