Itinerary

Days 1, 2 and 3

You arrive in Walvis Bay Airport where you will be met by your vehicle hire representative who will familiarise you with your 4×4. You then have a mere  42 km drive to Swakopmund along the coast road. Here you will find this quirky coastal town which is considered the adventure capital of the country.There is so much to do in Swakopmund from sandboarding down the world’s highest dunes to sky-diving. Our personal favourites are to spend a morning out on the water on a seal and dolphin tour where the local seals often join you on the boat for an up close and personal encounter and a journey out into the Namib with Tommy Collard to look for the endemic species found only in this ancient desert is always considered a highlight of a trip to the coast.

o/n central Swakopmund Guesthouse,  Bed and Breakfast

Day 4

After a hearty breakfast you take the salt road north before turning inland at Henties Bay  onto the gravel road east past Namibia’s highest mountain, the Brandberg . Here we will head for your overnight accommodation, a rustic but simple place to stay right at the foot of the mountain and famed for occasional visits by Namibia’s desert elephants

o/n Brandberg Lodge area, stone chalet, Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

Days 5, 6 & 7

The drive from Brandberg to northern Damaraland is arguably one of the most stunning in Namibia. Your journey takes you over mountain passes and through sandy riverbeds before you reach the Palmwag Concession. Here you will leave your vehicle and be met by the camp’s guide from who will drive you the final 18km into the middle of one of the most remote and beautiful areas in Namibia. Your destination  is a legendary eco camp, here you can enjoy the total solitude, the magnificent scenery and with luck Damaraland’s famous desert lions, elephants and black rhinos along with all the usual plains game. Your days will be spent in search of wildlife on foot and by vehicle and your evenings will be spent around the campfire discussing the highlights of the day.

o/n Eco Lodge, Etendeka Concession, all inclusive

Days 8 & 9

You’ll leave Northern Damaraland, driving over the Grootberg Pass, on through Kamajab and head on towards Andersson’s Gate in central Etosha and the start of your safari adventure in this famous wildlife sanctuary.  This huge park is home to an amazing diversity of wildlife which is known for its open plains and wide vistas where vast herds of herbivores trek endlessly to the camp’s floodlit waterhole by the ever present carnivores looking for their next meal.  Your typical safari day, will unfortunately involve early mornings as this is when wildlife is out and about, but by late morning everything is finding a nice piece of shade to cool down and so can you!  Head back to your lodge for a spot of lunch a swim in the pool, and head out again late afternoon.  You’ll need to be back at the lodge before sundown, a spot of dinner – maybe a spot of Oryx steak or Kudu (!) and then it’s down to the floodlit waterhole and watch the wildlife come to you – perfect!

o/n Southern Etosha, Family Waterhole Chalet, B&B

Days 10 & 11

This morning you travel into the wooded area surrounding Halali Camp.  This diverse sector has both Mopani woodland and dry savannah that rolls down to the very edge of the giant salt pan. The floodlit waterhole is a real highlight of this camp with black rhino and huge herds of elephants often seen along with porcupines, honey badgers and even the ever elusive leopard.

o/n Halali Camp, Bush Chalet, Bed & Breakfast

Days 12 & 13

You head east once more today towards Namutoni Camp and the wildlife rich acacia woodland around Fischer’s Pan. Not only is this area home to some of Etosha’s largest lion prides, leopard sightings here are frequent, this area is home to the majority of the park’s giraffe and it is one of the best places in Africa to see the world’s smallest antelope, the diminutive Damara Dik-Dik.

o/n Namutoni Camp, Bush Chalet, Bed & Breakfast

Day 14

After a final game drive you leave the peace and quiet of Etosha and head south on the tar road until you reach the gates to Okonjima. The lodge lies a further 24km into the middle of the mountains and it is here you will spend your last night searching for some of Africa’s biggest carnivores. Options include walking with wild cheetah, tracking leopard, hyena and wild dog from an open vehicle with the aid of a telemetry and visiting the Africat Foundation. With its magnificent rooms, excellent cuisine and genuine conservation story, Okonjima is always a highlight of any trip to Namibia.

o/n Okonjima Bush Camp – full board including activities

Day 15

After a final morning trail or a well deserved lie in you have a three and a half hour drive back to Windhoek where you’ll drop off your 4×4 at the airport in time for your flight back to the UK
