DAY 01

Windhoek (310km) Sesriem - ( D)

  • Be collected between 09:00 and 09:30 from anywhere within Windhoek. Windhoek is surrounded by mountains and you have to pass both the Eros Mountains and the Khomas Hochland Range. As you come through the mountains, you drop down from the central plateau to grassy desert savannah. The accommodation is situated in Sesriem itself. 

  • On arrival, check into the lodge and get comfortable with the surrounding nature of the Namib Desert.

DAY 02

Sesriem (83km) Solitaire ( B D )

  • Early start to catch the soft light of the sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem gate, continue towards Sossusvlei with distant sand dunes along both sides of the road. 

  • Stop at the famous Dune 45. Those who feel fit may climb the dune and get a breathtaking view of the surrounding desert and dunes. 

  • After breakfast, take a desert walk in the cool of the morning at Deadvlei, with the chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches. 

  • As the day cools down in the afternoon, go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon.

DAY 03

Solitaire (350km) Swakopmund – ( B )

  • Move from desert to sea. Namibia is a country of contrasts. 

  • On the way, you will cross the Tropic of Capricorn and traverse the Gaub and the 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, you will make a stop in Walvis Bay to enjoy the view of flamingos and other birds in the lagoons.

DAY 04

Swakopmund - ( B )

  • The rest of the day will be free with plenty of time to explore the town. Swakopmund is a 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-bookings 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 today is not included in the cost of the safari and will be at the client's own expense.

DAY 05

Damaraland ( B D )

  • Start the day early as your drive takes us northeast into Damaraland. 

  • Head north up to Henties Bay where you can spot the most recent shipwreck to fall victim to the Benguela current, before heading inland, across the gravel plains for the Namib and north from Uis, with the chance to meet the local people, the Himba, Damara and Herero that call these areas home.

  • Either way, if time allows, in the afternoon, you will visit Twyfelfontein (literally translated means ‘doubtful spring’), a UNESCO World Heritage site that is home to over 2500 rock etchings, making it one of the worlds largest collections of rock petroglyphs together with the Damara Living Museum.

DAY 06

Etosha National Park - Okaukujo Camp ( B L )

  • Wake up with the smell of good coffee and a great breakfast.

  • Petrified Forest is a deposit of large tree trunks that have "turned to stone" through a process of diagenesis. There are at least two large tree trunks, each 45 metres (148ft) long, exposed to view. Several hundred others are located in the vicinity. It is believed that the trees were swept downstream by a large flood and covered by alluvial sands. Deprived of air, the organic matter could not rot and decay, but instead, over millions of years, underwent silicification, whereby each cell is individually fossilised and the appearance, if not the colour, of wood, is retained. The surrounding sands became sandstone, which is now eroding away. In addition, there are a large number of welwitschia plants at the site. The site was declared a National Monument on 1 March 1950

DAY 07

Etosha National Park – Namutoni Camp ( B L)

  • Spend most of the day game driving. You will visit a number of waterholes and make a stop at the Etosha Pan, the “place of dry water”. The Pan is an extensive flat depression of about 5,000 km2. This great, white expanse is a place of shimmering mirages and seeing large herds of game in this setting makes Etosha a unique experience. You may stop at Halali middle camp for a relaxing afternoon before going through to Namutoni Camp for an overnight stay.

DAY 08

Rundu ( Kavango River) ( B L D )

  • Game viewing continuous with an early start. You will continue from Etosha National Park through the eastern gate. Ther Journey will take us about 5 hours driving to the Lodge, base on the banks of the Okavango River.

  • On arrival, visit the Living Museum of the Mbunza, a traditional school for culture and at the same time a communal business for the local people of the Kavango. With this sustainable project, they will be able to preserve their traditional culture and to generate additional income.

DAY 09

Divundu - Bwabwata National Park - ( B D)

  • On arrival to the Lodge, check into your rooms and get comfortable with the Kavango River.

  • Join your guide on a sundowner game drive in the Bwabwata National Park. The park is home to numerous game. You will find large concentrations of elephants, buffalos but also - and this is special for the Buffalo Park - big herds of roan and sable antelope. Warthog, kudu, impala, reedbuck, red lechwe and of course hippos and crocodiles are also seen quite often. Predators which visit the park are lion and leopard. A part of the Buffalo park is situated in the ruins of an old South African army station. These ruins are often visited by impalas and kudus. It is not forbidden to leave the car and climb on some of the large termite hills along the riverside. The views and photographic opportunities from the ant hills are extraordinary. Please make sure that you are not disturbing any large mammals or crocodiles when you leave the car, as some of them like to disturb back.

The historical presence of the San in Botswana is particularly evident in northern Botswana's Tsodilo Hills region. In this area, stone tools and rock art paintings date back over 70,000 years and are by far the oldest known art.
