Itinerary
  • Day 1: Travel from Windhoek to Etosha National Parkexpand_more

    At Windhoek Airport or the place of your accommodation, discover the caring smile of your guide. He will quickly drive you to Etosha National Park, making a stop at the craft market of Okahandja. This will depend on time. It can also be done on the way back to Windhoek. 

    Depending on the time of arrival, a first safari will be done on arrival in the afternoons. 

    Accommodation will be at the lodge. When the stars light up the Namibian sky, you gather around a friendly table to listen to your guide's information and discuss the journey ahead- this will happen daily until the end of your tour.  


    Activities: A visit to the Art Market in Okahandja

    Accommodation: Etosha Area

    Meals: Lunch and Dinner

  • Day 2: Enjoy an Etosha National Park Game Driveexpand_more

     After breakfast, it is in Etosha's animal park that you will wander. We offer you time to observe the animals! If you happen to be a photo enthusiast, bring along your equipment and patience to capture the unusual encounters of wildlife. You will be able to observe the groups of springboks, zebras, etc., but also the rarer species such as the black-faced impala (endemic to Namibia) or the dik-diks, the smallest African antelope. The interaction between the animals around the waterholes is often very magical in the Etosha, where you might just come across the path of a leopard or a group of lionesses hunting!

    Let your mind wander as your eyes wander over the landscapes of the pre-Namib and its crumpled reliefs: your guide will drive you to the doors of Namib Naukluft National Park. The Namib Desert is one of the oldest and driest deserts in the world.

    To end of the day, get flexible with your guide and have a short hike: initiation flora and fauna! The fauna migrates freely in the heart of this huge space: oryx, springboks, but also ostriches and many birds adapted to desert conditions such as Gangas or Auricous vultures.
