Tour Details

Namibia is twice the size of Germany, the colonial power that annexed it for only 31 years (1884-1915) yet left an indelible imprint on its architecture, cuisine and language. It’s a looping, scenic journey that takes you via Okonjima, home of the Africat Foundation, to Etosha, Namibia’s greatest wildlife sanctuary, then west to the sculptural massifs of Damaraland. From here you head south to the coastal town of Swakopmund, home to the best surviving German colonial-era architecture. The place leaves you admiring its fierce beauty from a private plunge pool.

This is a holiday that requires a fair amount of driving but, with arrow-straight gravel roads through vast and empty scenery, this is not driving as you know it. This is a transformative, meditative journey into an inner world that will deliver you home feeling – dare I say it again – spiritually touched, and fully regenerated.

What to Expect

Etosha National Park is unique. Its waterhole culture forces the plains game to drink during the middle of the day when predators are most lethargic; thus it’s not uncommon to have a collage of several different species in the same frame. Lions, elephants and several endemic species of antelope and birds – including 46 raptors – add to the exhilarating game viewing.

This nine-day wildlife safari also visits the Waterberg Plateau Park, a haven for many diverse and rare species of animal and bird, and the rest of your time is spent in pole game-viewing position at Etosha.

  • Enjoy a self-drive safari or guided game drives in Etosha National Park.
  • Watch lion, giraffe and elephant drinking from waterholes vital to their survival.
  • Track desert-adapted elephants in the red-rock landscape of Damaraland.
  • Admire the ancient rock art at Twyfelfontein, created up to 10,000 years ago.
  • Spend time on the coast and exploring the dune wildlife close to Swakopmund.
Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Namibia

On arrival at the Windhoek Airport you’ll be met and driven to the accomodation. Once there and settled in, you can tuck into a tasty meal and enjoy sundowners around the camp fire, surrounded by the open countryside. An overnight stay follows.

(Overnight at Windhoek)

Day 2Etosha National Park

This morning enjoy a guided cheetah or leopard drive at Okonjima before setting off for Etosha National Park, a journey of around three hours on a good tarmac road. Settle into your room and you enjoy an afternoon game drive. You can choose to head out with a professional guide from the camp onto the reserve or self-drive to explore independently. Alternatively, spend the afternoon relaxing at your camp, looking out for any passing wildlife at the waterhole. Arrive by dusk and call it a day.

(Overnight at Etosha)

Day 3Exploring the eastern side

Spend the day exploring the eastern side of Etosha National Park, either self-driving or on guided game drives from your camp. Most of the game viewing here is at the various waterholes. Some are busier than others and Twee Palms and Aroe are good options in the east. If self driving it’s a good idea to take a picnic with you to enjoy at lunch (which the lodge can provide).

(Overnight at Etosha)

Day 4Central Etosha

Head west through Etosha National Park today to the central area. Make a day trip of it and along the way stop to see wildlife, often by the road as well as at waterholes, and take in one of the vista points overlooking the giant Etosha salt pan (after which the park is named). Be sure to exit the Anderssons gate before the park closes at sunset as you are staying on the private Ongava reserve which borders the national park and is entered from just outside the park, right next to the Anderssons gate.

(Overnight at Etosha)

Day 5Last day at Etosha

Today you can explore the central area of Etosha, very popular with wildlife, either self-driving or opt to join a guided drive through the lodge. The guided drives at Ongava can be in the National Park or on the reserve which has a range of wildlife from lion to kudu, rhino to giraffe and many more. A guided game drive on the reserve is a great way to avoid any crowds and get off the road for some wonderful wildlife sightings.

(Overnight at Etosha)

Day 6Desert Landscapes of Damaraland

After breakfast you depart Ongava for Damaraland – an incredible desert landscape of rugged rocks and escarpments. The drive is roughly five hours and the scenery becomes more stunning the deeper you get into Damaraland. Arriving at the edge of the reserve you leave you car in a secure car park and are driven up to camp where, having settled in, you can enjoy a sundowner drink taking in the wonderful views. Overnight stay follows.

(Overnight at Damaraland)

Day 7Damaraland

After breakfast, head out for Etendeka. At Etendeka, activities are included and you normally head out for a guided morning walk, when temperatures are cooler, to explore this fascinating landscape, see the plant and wildlife that survives in this harsh environment and take in some incredible views. In the afternoon, after lunch back at camp, enjoy a guided nature drive to get further afield and track desert adapted elephants. Overnight stay follows.

(Overnight at Damaraland)

Day 8Coastal town of Swakopmund

Set off today for the coastal town of Swakopmund, a journey of around six hours, depending on how many stops you make. We would stop by for visiting Twyfelfontein en route. Here you can see ancient rock art carved and painted by Bushman tribes thousands of years ago, with over 2,500 engravings and paintings found in the area.

(Overnight at Swakopmund)

Day 9Spot flamingos and seals

You have the whole day to explore Swakopmund and its surrounding area. There are lots of activities to enjoy here to suit most ages and interests. We highly recommend visiting Pelican Point to see the flamingos and kayak with seals at Walvis Bay. Alternatively take in a guided 4×4 day-trip to Sandwich Harbour, a natural sanctuary for migrating birdlife. If you feel like a break from four wheels take to the sea on a catamaran excursion on the Atlantic Ocean.

(Overnight at Swakopmund)

Day 10Last day at Swakopmund

Spend your final day further exploring Swakopmund. The nearby sand dunes provide numerous activity options. We suggest joining the Living Desert tour, where a guide shows and teaches you about the smaller wildlife living in the dunes, including geckos, insects and snakes. This can easily be arranged locally or we can pre-book this for you. You may also like to go quad biking or sand boarding through the dunes for an exhilarating end to your trip. Cape Cross, just north of Swakopmund, is also worth a visit to see its large seal colony which can number around 200,000 member!.

(Overnight at Swakopmund)

Day 11Departure from Namibia

After breakfast, check-out of your accommodation and get transferred to Windhoek Airport, where you drop off your car in time to board your onward flight home. Recollect your mesmerizing days amidst Namibian Wildlife on your way back.
