Day 1: Windhoek to Okaukuejo, Etosha National Park
Your adventure starts when the guide collects you from the hotel between 08:00 and 08:30. We shall depart the city via the B1 to the north, embarking on an adventure to the world famous Etosha National Park. We have a long drive today. On our way we will stop in Otjiwarongo to fill up with petrol and get provisions. We will have lunch along the way, possibly at Outjo, depending on the time. We reach our destination after entering the south side of Etosha through the Andersson Gate and arriving in Okaukuejo. After settling into our rooms in the afternoon we will have time to explore the surroundings and enjoy the swimming pool before a late afternoon game drive. After dinner a visit to the floodlit waterhole is strongly recommended as there is a good chance of seeing rhinos and lions come to drink.

Day 2: Okaukuejo to Namutoni, Etosha National Park
(Inside the park)
Today we will spend most of the day game driving. We will visit a number of waterholes and make a stop at the Etosha Pan, the “place of dry water”. The Pan is an extensive flat depression of about 5,000 km2. This great, white expanse is a place of shimmering mirages and being able to see large herds of game in this setting makes Etosha a unique experience in Africa. We may stop at Halali middle camp to have lunch before we continue our game drive to Namutoni.
We have time to relax at the swimming pool in Namutoni or at the waterhole before a late afternoon game drive. The game viewing is usually excellent with close views of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks and plenty of birds. If we are lucky we may also have some close encounters with elephants and lions. In the evening we may enjoy a glass of wine and experience a fabulous sunset from the tower of the old Namibian German fort before dinner.
Day 3: Namutoni to Windhoek
After a morning safari game drive, with the opportunity to get some more pictures of Etosha's wildlife in the soft morning light, we depart Etosha via the Von Lindequist Gate and head back to the city. We will travel on the main road (B1), making a short detour to Lake Otjikoto distinguished by its emerald-green waters and discovered in 1851. Just before reaching Windhoek we will have time to stop in the small town of Okahandja and visit Namibia's largest wood-carving market. We are likely to arrive back in the city at around 16:30 and you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
