ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to Sossusvlei
(Sesriem Campsite or similar)(350km)

Collection time is between 08:00 and 08:30 from anywhere within Windhoek. Windhoek is surrounded by mountains and we have to climb out, first over the Eros Mountains and then over the Khomas Hochland Range. As we come through the mountains we drop down from the central plateau to grassy desert savannah. We stop at Solitaire for petrol and perhaps also afternoon tea. We aim to arrive at our campsite during the late afternoon and have time to relax and explore the surroundings before sunset when the colours glow and change on the distant mountains to the east and Elim dune. Dinner will be served around the campfire.

Activities: Elim Dune Excursion, Namib-Naukluft National Park.

Included: Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activities

Day 2: Sesriem to Sossusvlei to Sesriem
(Sesriem Campsite or similar)(250km)

Early start to catch the soft light of sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem we continue towards Sossusvlei with distant sand dunes rising up along both sides of the road. Sossusvlei is one of Namibia's premier attractions with its unique dunes rising to almost 400 metres, some of the highest in the world. We will stop at the famous Dune 45. Those who feel fit may climb the dune and get a breathtaking view of the surrounding desert. After breakfast we take a desert walk in the cool of the morning, with a chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches. As the day cools down in the afternoon we go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon before heading back to our camp.

Activities: Dead Vlei, Dune 45, Sesriem Canyon Hike, Sossusvlei.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activities

Day 3: Sesriem to Windhoek
(Villa Vista Guesthouse or similar)(350km)

We pack up, have breakfast and then head back to civilisation on scenic roads through the Khomas Hochland mountain range. We are likely to arrive back in the city at around 15:00 and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Accommodation in Windhoek

Day 4: Windhoek to Okaukuejo, Etosha National Park, South
(Okaukuejo Campsite)(450km)

You will be collected from your hotel between 08:00 and 08:30. We have a long drive today. On our way we will stop in Otjiwarongo to fill up with petrol and stock up on provisions. We will have a picnic lunch along the way and arrive in Okaukuejo and set up our camp in the afternoon. We 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 rhinos and lions come to drink.

Activities: Etosha Game Drive, Etosha National Park

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activities

Day 5: Okaukuejo to Namutoni, Etosha National Park, East
(Namutoni Camp)

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 seeing 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. Back at the camp 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: Etosha Game Drive, Etosha East

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activities

Day 6: Namutoni to Windhoek
(500km)

After a morning game drive, with the opportunity to take more pictures of Etosha's wildlife in the soft morning light, we head back to the city. We will travel on the main road, passing through farmland and small towns, with time to stop in the small town of Okahandja with 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 on our return.

Activities: Etosha Game Drive
