ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

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

You will be picked up at your accommodation at around 08:00 am and transferred to Okonjima which is about 2.5 hours from Windhoek. Okonjima is home to the AfriCat Foundation, a conservation operation that focuses on the long term survival of Namibia's large carnivores in their natural habitat, particularly the cheetah. During the afternoon you will be taken on a tour that will provide more insights into this programme and the opportunity to see some of these majestic 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 second largest, permanent, natural lake. It is distinguished by its great depth and emerald-green waters. We will rest here and learn about the history and geology of this unusual landmark.

Having arrived at Etosha, we will check into our luxury lodge which is situated just outside the Von Lindequist gate on the eastern boundary of the Etosha National Park. Mushara Lodge boasts a small library, bar with extensive wine cellar, an airy lounge area with a fireplace for winter evenings, dining area and curio shop. The well-spaced chalets are arranged around a beautiful swimming pool surrounded by well-manicured lawns.

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 experience close encounters with elephants and lions. We will return to our accommodation just before sunset.

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 searching for and observing wildlife. A visit to a number of waterholes is high on the agenda. We will also stop at the Etosha Pan, the “place of dry water”. This extensive, flat depression is about 5,000 km2. Seeing large herds of game in this setting of shimmering mirages is a unique experience. We may stop at Halali middle camp to have lunch before we continue to our lodge near the southern side of the park.

Etosha Safari Lodge is set on a hillock overlooking sprawling mopane woodland. The chalets each have their own private verandah with panoramic views. The main area offers a spacious deck, dining area, bar, lounge and three swimming pools.

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 indigenous “tribe” of nomadic pastoralists. We will learn about their marriage customs, traditional way of life and food and we will visit the “holy fire”.

We spend the night at Grootberg Lodge. Situated at the very edge of the Etendeka Plateau, it offers spectacular views over the Klip River Valley. Black rhino and desert elephant freely roam this area. Enjoy a sundowner on the deck or a swim in the pool.

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, travelling through a variety of landscapes. 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 pass by the Organ Pipes, a striking rock formation of columnar basalts which resemble organ pipes. The afternoon can be spent relaxing at the lodge.

Our luxury lodge is set in a stunning location, nestled amongst massive ochre boulders with amazing views over the vast and unspoilt surrounding wilderness. Sunsets here are spectacular.

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, a vast seal colony, north of Swakopmund. Here you are able to get up close to thousands of wild Cape fur seals and observe them in their natural environment.

Tonight we will dine at one of Swakopmund's excellent restaurants. The seafood here is superb.
