ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to Sossusvlei
(350km)(Desert Hills Glamping Camp)

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

Included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Sossusvlei
(250km)(Desert Hills Glamping Camp)

Early start to catch the soft light of the sunrise over the desert. We travel towards Sossusvlei with sand dunes rising up along both sides of the road. We will stop at the famous Dune 45.

Those who feel fit may climb the dune and get a breathtaking view of the surrounding Namibian desert. After breakfast we will take a desert walk in the cool of the morning, with the chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches.

As the day cools down we will go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon before heading back.

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

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

Day 3: Sossusvlei to Windhoek
(350km)(Villa Vista Guesthouse)

Back to civilisation on scenic roads through the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range. We will arrive back in the city at around 15H00 and you will be dropped off at your accommodation (included in tour).

Included: Breakfast, Lunch

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

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 provisions. We will have a picnic lunch along the way and arrive in Okaukuejo 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 highly recommended as there is a good chance of seeing rhinos and lions come to drink.

Activity: Etosha Game Drive

Included: Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activity

Day 5: Etosha National Park, East
(450km)(Namutoni Resort)

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. 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 at 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.

Activity: Etosha Game Drive

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 6: Etosha to Windhoek

After a morning game drive and the opportunity to take some 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 at 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.
