  1. Day 1 Windhoek to Etosha

    You’ll be collected from the airport and the guide will drive to Etosha National Park. There will be a short stop at Otjiwarongo, one of Namibia’s oldest towns for a light snack pack lunch before you continue north, entering Etosha National Park via the Anderson Gate. Enjoy a game drive to your camp, where you will arrive in time for a fabulous Namibian sunset. Dine on an authentic Namibian dinner prepared for you by your guide and marvel at the vastness of the African night sky before a good night’s rest in the captivating African bush.

    *Please note: due to the early departure on the first day an optional pre-tour night in Windhoek is available (Extended 8 Day Tour).

    Main Destination: Etosha National Park

    Accommodation: Okaukuejo Etosha

  2. Day 2 Etosha National Park- Game drive

    Rise before dawn for tea/coffee and a snack before an early game drive and then breakfast back at the camp. Continue on another game drive and see the mighty Etosha Pan (seasonal) and have a chance to admire the expansive, desolate landscape that is this massive 5,000km² saltpan.
    Pass a number of waterholes spotting the Big Four (there are no buffalo in Etosha), returning to Halali where you will enjoy a delicious picnic lunch before continuing on to Okaukuejo Camp, arriving late afternoon to visit one last waterhole before leaving the park just before sunset. Your accommodation for the night is at Etosha Village offering permanent tents with en-suite bathroom facilities.

    Accommodation: Okaukuejo Etosha

    Mid-range lodge located just outside Etosha NP

  3. Day 3 Damaraland to Swakopmund

    Various art cafes, curio shops and attractive side-walk cafes are just waiting to be explored and the town is also the adrenalin hub of Namibia with many fun-filled activities from which to choose. You will drive via the communal lands of Damaraland (Kunene Region), and stop at the Ugab River bridge to visit with the beautiful Herero ladies who sell their small arts and crafts to support their families. Lunch in the shadow of the Brandberg Mountain and enjoy a short visit with a Himba group who have moved into this area to sell their jewellery and other items (dependent on Himba tribes-people). After lunch we head directly through the Namib Desert and stop at a shipwreck on the Skeleton Coast before arriving late afternoon in Swakopmund.
    Spend the afternoon exploring this charming town on foot, and enjoy an optional night out at one of the many restaurants in Swakopmund.

    Main Destination: Swakopmund

    Accommodation: Pension Hotel a La Mer
     Mid-range hotel located in or near Swakopmund

  4. Day 4 Swakopmund to the Dunes of Sossusvlei

    Spend the morning at leisure enjoying optional unguided activities, departing
    Swakopmund before lunch. Driving via the Kuiseb and Ghaub passes, you will arrive at your tented camp in the Namib desert around mid-afternoon.
    After checking in and freshening up, take a leisurely walk to enjoy the magical sunset over the Naukluft mountain range. This is one of the best times of the day to enjoy the desolate desert scenery, as the sun lights-up the dunes which explode in a rainbow of golden hues.
    The swimming pool and bar offer the perfect spots to enjoy a lazy afternoon in
    preparation for an early wake-up call tomorrow.

    Main Destination: Sossusvlei (Namib-Naukluft NP)
    Accommodation: Desert Camp
     Mid-range self catering accommodation located just outside Namib-Naukluft NP

  5. Day 5 Sossusvlei Namib desert

    Today you’ll rise early and depart for the dunes at Sossusvlei just 3km away, ensuring you arrive in time to enjoy the early morning light on the dunes. We travel down an ancient riverbed, surrounded by towering dunes, to the 2×4 parking area. The 4×4 shuttle drives straight into the Sossusvlei area where you can explore some of the world’s highest dunes, before stopping at Dead Vlei, with its skeletal camel thorn trees and cracked white clay. To return to the parking area, you can set off on foot or take the dune shuttle, stopping at (and climbing if desired) the famous Dune 45, the highest dune of them all. Return to Sesriem and visit the nearby Sesriem Canyon, one of the only constant sources of water in the area. You will arrive back at the camp in the late afternoon, in time to watch the sun set over the desert.

We then return to Windhoek via the Naukluft Mountains and Rehoboth. Arrival time is late afternoon, with a transfer to your Windhoek accommodation or the airport for onward travel.
