7 Day Highlights of Namibia

Day 1

Windhoek – N/a’ankuse – Windhoek

You are collected from the airport (must arrive prior to 13h00) or bus terminal on arrival and transferred to the centrally located Chameleon Guesthouse. This afternoon you will join the afternoon feeding tour at N/a’ankuse Lodge, here you have wonderful photographic opportunities of the large predators such as lion, leopard and wild dog to name a few, that are unable to be re-located back into the wild and learn more about these fascinating animals. You can then enjoy sundowner drinks before returning to Chameleon Guesthouse for dinner (own expense at restaurant of choice). Your visit to N/a’ankuse supports the project and helps with the costs of keeping these majestic animals alive.  Overnight twin share room with en-suite facilities.

Meals not included

Day 2

Windhoek – Etosha National Park

You should be ready at 07h30 as the group meets for a pre-departure talk before we depart. We stop briefly at Otjiwarongo and enjoy a light lunch pack “on the move” before entering Etosha National Park through the Anderson Gate. We enjoy an afternoon game drive through the park visiting waterholes looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino and many different species of antelope. We arrive at our lodge just before sunset and settle into our rooms, with en-suite bathroom and tea/coffee facilities. We highly recommend spending time at the floodlit waterhole while dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire and an early night is recommended.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

Day 3

Etosha National Park

We start our first game drive at sunrise to catch the predators while they are still active, visiting many waterholes and return to Halali for breakfast. Our second game drive mid-morning takes us to the impressive Etosha Pan “great white place” where you can get out of the vehicle and experience this 4500 sq km “saline desert” before continuing your game drive to look for the Big 4. We arrive back at Halali where your guide will prepare you a delicious lunch whilst you have a dip in the pool or relax by the camp waterhole. After lunch you will have a chance to relax before our final game drive across the park towards Okaukuejo calling into some well-known waterholes and leave the park prior to sunset. Accommodation tonight is just outside the park in twin share permanent tents with en-suite bathroom facilities. Dinner is prepared by your guide and another early night is recommended.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Enjoy an early morning breakfast and departure from your lodge is at 07h30. Your route today takes you into the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Damaraland. You have the chance to meet the wonderful Herero ladies who sell their handmade arts and crafts to support their rural families. A light roadside lunch is served en-route in the shadow of Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, and you can interact with some of the colourful local characters who live in this harsh environment. On the drive down the Skeleton Coast we explore the remains of a small shipwreck. Arrive in Swakopmund early afternoon where you will have the chance to explore this quaint seaside town on foot and enjoy a coffee and cake in one of the many cafes. Overnight accommodation at Hotel A La Mer (or similar) in en-suite rooms on a twin share basis. Sample one of the many great restaurants for your evening meal (own expense).

We explore this unique area on foot before heading into Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge dunes with their ever-changing colours. We can either walk or take the 4×4 shuttle back to our vehicle. As we drive back to our accommodation we will stop at the famous Dune 45 and climb this dune if we wish or just wander around the base.
