ITINERARYDETAILED Itinerary (offsite)
Day 1: Windhoek to Okaukuejo, Etosha South
Our safari start between 08:00 and 08:30. You will be collected from your hotel. 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 a picnic lunch along the way and arrive in Okaukuejo in the afternoon to set up our camp.
We will have time to explore the surroundings and enjoy the swimming pool before a late afternoon game drive. After dinner around the campfire, a visit to the floodlit waterhole is strongly recommended as there is a good chance of seeing nocturnal animals that hide during the day such as lions, hyenas, leopards and rhinos.
Activity: Afternoon game drive
Included: Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activity
Day 2: Okaukuejo to Namutoni, Etosha East
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 German fort before dinner around the campfire.
Activities: Morning & Afternoon game drives
Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activities
Day 3: Namutoni to Windhoek
After a morning game drive, with opportunities to take 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), taking a short detour to Lake Otjikoto, which was discovered in 1851. Otjikoto Lake, distinguished by its emerald-green waters, is the smaller of only two permanent natural lakes in Namibia. It is a sinkhole lake that was created by a collapsing karst cave. Just before reaching Windhoek we have time to stop in the small town of Okahandja home to 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.
Activity: Otjikoto Lake
