ITINERARY

DETAILED Itinerary (offsite)

Day 1: Windhoek to Mariental, Kalahari Desert
(250km) (Camelthorn Kalahari Lodge or similar)

Collection time is between 08:00 and 08:45 from Windhoek. We take the B1 road that goes to Rehoboth. After a few kilometers we turn to the left onto the C21 and head towards the Camelthorn Lodge which is situated on the D1268 road. The lodge is strategically situated in the centre of the Kalahari Desert. It is built with thatch and blessed with a staggering stone pool. In the afternoon you will have a sun-downer drive with the lodge.

Activity: Sundowner drive

Included: Lunch, Dinner and Activity

Day 2: Kalahari to Sossusvlei, Namib Desert
(Namib Desert Lodge Gondwana Collection Namibia or similar)

We proceed with the D1268 road, joining the C20 and then onto the B1 road as we make our way onto the gravel road that will take us past small villages and spectacular scenery. Lunch will be served somewhere along the road. We aim to arrive at our camp before sunset. Dinner will be served at the lodge.

Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Sossusvlei
(Namib Desert Lodge Gondwana Collection Namibia or similar)

We make an early start to catch the soft light of sunrise over the desert. In the cool of the morning we take a walk through the desert with a good chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks and ostriches. We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei and drive to Sossusvlei Lodge for lunch, passing by the famous “Dune 45”. As the day cools in the late afternoon we go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon before we return to our lodge.

Activities: Dead Vlei, Dune 45, Sesriem Canyon Hike, Sossusvlei, Namib-Naukluft National Park

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

Day 4: Namib Desert to Swakopmund
(300km) (Atlantic Villa Guesthouse or similar)

Namibia is a country of contrasts. Today we trade the desert for the sea. We will cross the Tropic of Capricorn and traverse both the Gaub and 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. Dinner tonight is at the client's own expense at a local restaurant.

Activities: Walvis Bay Lagoon, Walvis Bay Salt Works

Included: Breakfast, Lunch and Activities

Day 5: Swakopmund
(Atlantic Villa Guesthouse or similar)

“Coast to coast day” as we drive to Walvis Bay where we stop at the lagoon area to see flamingoes and lots of other birds. For the rest of the day there is plenty of time to explore the town. Swakopmund is 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-booking in advance. (N.B. all extra activities in Swakopmund are subject to availability and are made at the client's own risk and expense). Dinner is at the client's own expense today.

Included: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 6: Swakopmund to Twyfelfontein
(430km)(Twyfelfontein Country Lodge or similar)

We head to Damaraland along the Skeleton Coast and stop at the seal colony at Cape Cross where we experience a close encounter with thousands of fur seals. We continue to the small town of Uis for supplies. Uis is an old mining town and a good place to buy semi-precious stones. We pass by the Brandberg, the highest mountain in Namibia, and arrive in Twyfelfontein in time for sunset. On the way we will visit the ancient rock engravings that are found in the area.

Before heading to Palmwag we visit the Twyfelfontein Bushman rock engravings and paintings (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Driving on one of the gravel roads that connects many of the places in the Kunene region, we pass by the village of Bergsig and proceed for another 45 kilometers to Palmwag. This part of the world is blessed with table mountains and spectacular scenery. Dinner will be served at the Lodge.

We will search for predators, plains game, reptiles and birds. Your guide will try to find you the best sightings. You might have lunch inside the park and only return back to the lodge in the late afternoon.

Day 11: Okonjima to Windhoek
(250km)

Back to Windhoek through the small town of Okahandja with the biggest craft market in Namibia. We stop to explore the market and perhaps buy some souvenirs before heading back to Windhoek. The stalls are operated on a co-operative basis by the local community and the market is a good place to do last-minute-shopping for truly Namibian souvenirs. You will arrive in Windhoek in time for lunch.
