ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to Okonjima Nature Reserve
(300km)(Okonjima Plains Camp or similar)

Pick up at your accommodation will be from 08h00am. The first day will take us to Okonjima. It is home to the AfriCat Foundation in Namibia, a conservation operation that focuses on the African big cats, particularly the cheetah. During the afternoon you will be taken on a tour that will provide more insights into this wonderful conservation program. The learning will be enhanced by the opportunity of seeing some of the animals.

Activity: AfriCat Foundation excursion

Included: Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 2: Okonjima to Etosha National Park, East
(300km)(Mushara Lodge or similar)

This morning we make an early start and head off towards the Etosha National Park. We will travel via Lake Otjikoto, which is Namibia's largest permanent natural lake. We will rest here and learn about the history of this unusual landmark. Having arrived at Etosha, we will check into our lodge just outside the gate. We embark on our first game drive during the cool of the afternoon. The game viewing is usually excellent with close sightings of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks and plenty of birds. If we are lucky we may also have close encounters with elephants and lions. Just before sunset we will depart the park and head towards our lodge.

Activities: Otjikoto Lake, Etosha Game Drive

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

Day 3: Etosha National Park, South
(Etosha Safari Lodge Gondwana Collection Namibia or similar)

Today will be spent watching wildlife. A visit to a number of waterholes is high on the cards and we 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 and relax before we continue to the southern side of the park and our place of stay.

Activity: Etosha Game Drive

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

Day 4: Etosha to Palmwag
(320km)(Grootberg Lodge or similar)

We kick start our day with a game drive before leaving the park and driving into the desert mountains of the Kaokoveld, one of the last true wildernesses of Southern Africa and home of the Himba people. During the afternoon we will pay a visit to Otjikandera Himba village where we will meet the local inhabitants. A special guide is going to be available for the time we are there. The guide will translate for us and introduce us to this “tribe”. We will learn about marriage customs, traditional food and we will visit the “holy fire”. Later we proceed to Grootberg where we spend the night.

Activity: Otjikandera Himba Village Excursion

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 5: Palmwag to Twyfelfontein, Damaraland
(400km)(Mowani Mountain Camp or similar)

Today we will continue further south into Damaraland. On our way we will travel through different landscapes and see the local people. The area is known for Desert Elephants and, if we are lucky, we might spot some. We will visit the Twyfelfontein UNESCO World Heritage Site featuring one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa . We will also see the Organ Pipes before continuing to our lodge. The afternoon can be spent relaxing at the lodge.

Activity: UNESCO Bushman rock engravings at Twyfelfontein

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 6: Twyfelfontein to Swakopmund, Skeleton Coast
(Desert Breeze Lodge or similar) (260km)

We depart early to enjoy the cool of the morning. Our first stop is the small town of Uis, an old mining town and one of the best places to buy semi-precious stones for which Namibia is famous. Here rough amethyst, tourmaline and other stones can be found at bargain prices. Having arrived at the coast we drive to Cape Cross and the seal colony for close-up views of thousands of fur seals. Tonight we will dine at one of Swakopmund's excellent restaurants. The seafood here is superb.

Activity: Cape Cross Seal Colony

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 7: Swakopmund to Windhoek
(360km)

Today, your guide will discuss all possible optional activities with you and offer to make pre-bookings (N.B. all extra activities in Swakopmund are at the client's own expense). Later we drive back to Windhoek where you will be dropped off at your accommodation in the afternoon.
