DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to NamibRand Nature Reserve (Namib Desert)
(400km) (Desert Hills Lodge or similar)

Collection time is between 08:00 and 08:30 from anywhere within Windhoek. Windhoek is surrounded by mountains and we have to pass over both the Eros Mountains and 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 before we continue to our first night at the lodge. We aim to arrive at our lodge during the early afternoon.

Spanning an area of 172,200 hectares and encompassing four distinct ecosystems, the Namib Rand Reserve is among the largest privately owned game parks in Southern Africa. Founded to conserve the unique environment and wildlife species of the south-western Namib Desert, the park’s mix of dunes, mountains, rocky outcrops, sandy flats and gravel plains provides habitats for a diversity of mammals - including hyenas, jackals, foxes, antelopes and various wild cats - as well as a plethora of bird species, reptiles, insects, frogs and flora.

Included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: NamibRand Nature Reserve (Namib Desert)
(Desert Hills Lodge or similar)

We start early to catch the soft light of the sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem we continue towards Sossusvlei with distant sand dunes 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 desert and dunes. After breakfast we will 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 will go on a a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon. We then return to the lodge.

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

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

Day 3: Sossusvlei to Swakopmund
(350km) (Indulge or similar)

Namibia is a country of contrasts. Today we will move from desert to sea. On our way we will cross the Tropic of Capricorn and traverse the Gaub and the Kuiseb passes, driving down to the dry river bed at the bottom of the Kuiseb Canyon before climbing up the other side, watching the spectacular desert landscape unfold before us. Having arrived at the coast, we will make a stop in Walvis Bay to enjoy the sight of flamingos and other birds in the lagoons and to visit the salt works. We overnight in a hotel. Dinner tonight is at a local restaurant and is included in the tour.

Activities: Walvis Bay Lagoon, Walvis Bay Salt Works

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activities

Day 4: Swakopmund
(Indulge or similar)

In the morning we will visit the seal colony at Cape Cross, north of Swakopmund, where we will experience thousands of fur seals at close range. The rest of the day will be free with plenty of time to explore the town. Swakopmund is a very pleasant seaside town with lots of shops, a good stretch of beach (although the Atlantic is quite cold here) and an open-air curio market. There is also a very good museum and the Namibian National Marine Aquarium is located in Swakopmund. Alternatively, there are various optional activities that can be arranged. These include a boat-tour (with oysters and champagne!), scenic flights and micro-light flights over the desert, fishing trips (either from the beach or in a boat), quad-bike trips into the desert and over the sand dunes around Swakopmund, sandboarding, skydiving and many other activities. Your guide will discuss all the possible optional activities with you and offer to make pre-bookings in advance. (N.B. all extra activities in Swakopmund are subject to availability and are made at the client's own risk and expense).

Activity: Cape Cross Seal Colony

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Entrance Fee and Activity

Day 5: Swakopmund to Windhoek

Today we will return to Windhoek, passing by marble and gold mines and Namibia's largest craft market in Okahandja, the administrative centre of the Herero people. Back in Windhoek you will be dropped off at your accommodation just after lunch.
