Day-by-day Itinerary:

Day 01: Windhoek, Namibia

On arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport in Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, you will be met and transferred to your accommodation for the night. Your guide will meet you at the lodge and we then embark on a short orientation city tour of Windhoek. The evening is spent at leisure. Overnight at Klein Windhoek Guesthouse or similar, all meals on own account today

Day 02-03: Windhoek – Sossusvlei, Namibia

Today we make our way to the Namib Naukluft National Park, which contains what is considered to be the oldest desert in the world. The next morning we need to wake up early to visit the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. These dunes, which can reach heights of over 300 m, are absolutely spectacular and provide for a fantastic photo opportunity. With luck, there may even be water in the vlei (lake). We also stop to view the Sesriem Canyon, which was carved millions of years ago by the Tsauchab River. Overnight at Agama River Camp or similar, breakfast and lunch included on both days, dinner on own account.

Day 04: Sossusvlei – Swakopmund, Namibia

The day is spent driving through the Namib Naukluft National Park on our way to Swakopmund. The Namib-Naukluft Desert is an ancient land with an ageless spirit. It is home to some of the rarest plant and animal species in the world. Sightings of these unique fauna and flora are a must on a Namibian safari. The animals of this harsh landscape include the oryx, springbok and Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra. We arrive at the charming coastal town of Swakopmund in the afternoon, where you will have the opportunity to partake in a few of the many optional activities this afternoon and the following day. Alternatively, just soak up the atmosphere of this quaint, little German town and enjoy its beauty and beaches. Overnight at Hotel A La Mer or similar, breakfast and lunch included, dinner on own account.

Day 05: Swakopmund, Namibia

Early morning departure to Walvis Bay Waterfront. We will meet a local kayak guide and continue on a scenic drive along the Walvis Bay Lagoon to Pelican Point. We stop along the way to take pictures of our countless flamingos, pelicans, large flocks of comorants and great variety of other birds and wildlife. After one hour we will reach Pelican Point where we will get our kayaks ready for adventure. Your local kayak guide will give you a safety briefing on how to use the equipment.

The kayaking takes place on the protected side of the peninsula. We spend around 2 hours on the ocean, depending on the general weather conditions. After kayaking, we recharge during breakfast with some fresh broetchens, tea and coffee before we go back to Swakopmund. Spend the rest of the afternoon at leisure. Overnight at Hotel A La Mer or similar, breakfast included today, lunch and dinner on own account.

Day 06: Cape Cross Seal Colony and Twyfelfontein

We travel along the barren Atlantic coast on our way out of Swakopmund to visit Cape Cross – the largest breeding site of the Cape Fur Seal. Leaving the coastline behind, we head inland across the desert plains for Twyfelfontein and view the ancient Bushmen paintings and engravings. Twyfelfontein was named a World Heritage site in 2007, the first Namibian location to receive this honour. Overnight at Twyfelfontein Country Lodge or similar, all meals included today.

Day 07-08: Petrified Forest & Etosha National Park, Namibia

On our journey today we will stop at the Petrified Forest, a collection of fossilised trees estimated to be around 250 million years old. Today we travel to Namibia’s best-known highlight of the north – Etosha National Park. We will fill the next 2 days with game drives in the hopes of spotting lion, leopard, elephant and rhino as well as cheetah, giraffe, zebra and the numerous different types of antelope the park has to offer. Etosha was declared a National Park in 1907 and it is home to approx. 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and, surprisingly, one species of fish. Overnight at Toshari Lodge or similar, breakfast and lunch included on both days and dinner on own account.

Day 09: Waterberg Plateau Park, Namibia

This morning we bid farewell to the wild animals of Etosha and travel via the Cheetah Conservation Foundation at Otjiwarongo to the Waterberg Plateau National Park. The CCF is an internationally recognised centre for research and education on cheetahs and their eco-systems. It boasts an extensive visitor’s centre, which encourages tourists to learn more about these beautiful cats and the efforts being made to save them. The Waterberg is a sandstone plateau which rises over 200 m from the surrounding plains and gives name to Namibia’s only mountain game park. Waterberg now supplies other Namibian parks with rare species. In 1989, black rhino were reintroduced to the area from Damaraland, sparking a successful breeding programme of national and international significance for the species. There are various trails to walk along searching for the elusive Damara dik-dik as well as a good variety of birds. Overnight at Waterberg Cap or similar, breakfast and lunch included dinner on own account.

Day 10: Return to Windhoek, Namibia

We leave the Waterberg Plateau behind us and travel back to Windhoek through the beautiful countryside, making short stops en-route. Once we arrive, the rest of the afternoon can be spent at leisure, and dinner can be enjoyed in one of the many fabulous restaurants in the city. Overnight at Klein Windhoek Guesthouse or similar, breakfast and lunch included today and dinner on own account.

Day 11: Depart for home

Our safari ends after breakfast. You will be transferred to Windhoek Airport in time for your departure flight. We hope to welcome you again one day on another of our African adventures.
