You arrive in Windhoek early morning where you will be met by Kathryn and driven north up the main tar road all the way to Etosha. This is rather a long first day I’m afraid but you will be able to recline your seats and snooze en route and wake up refreshed when you get to the park.
o/n Okaukuejo Camp, Etosha – waterhole chalets – dinner B&B
Day 2 and 3
Our first 3 nights will be spent in the western sector which is known for its open plains and wide vistas where vast herds of herbivores trek endlessly to the camp’s floodlit waterhole followed by the ever present carnivores looking for their next meal The camp’s floodlit waterhole is world famous and for those of you who have night time equipment the opportunities are endless o/n Okaukuejo Camp, bush chalet B&B
Day 4, 5, 6 and 7
This morning we travel further into the centre of the park and the wooded sector surrounding Halali Camp.This diverse area has both Mopani woodland and dry savanna 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.

Day 8, 9,10 and 11
We head east once more today towards Namutoni Camp and the wildlife rich woodland around Fischer’s Pan. This area is home to the majority of the park’s giraffe and is one of the only place in Africa to see the world’s smallest antelope, the diminutive Damara Dik-Dik and gives you the best opportunity to see the biggest of all antelope, the eland which seems to prefer this area
o/n Namutoni Camp, Etosha, double room B&B
We have time this morning for a final morning drive ( or a well deserved lay in ) before leaving the peace and quiet of the park and heading south once more on the tar road back to Windhoek for our last night in Namibia. Tonight we can dine at the famous Joe’s Beerhouse and discuss the highlights of our trip.
