Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek – Okonjima/Africat

This morning we meet the rest of the team and travellers that will join you on this adventure at 07.00am, so it is recommended that you have a pre-night in Windhoek the day before.

We depart from Windhoek early and stop briefly at the Okahandja Wood carving markets, where woodcarvers from all over Namibia collect and sell their handcrafted goods, which offers the perfect opportunity to support the local community.

Our next stop is our overnight destination, the world-renowned Okonjima Nature Reserve, which is an impressive 20,000ha nature reserve that’s home to an incredible array of wildlife species and is also home to the AfriCat Foundation.

The foundation’s long term mission is the conservation of Namibia’s wildlife in their natural habitat within a protected conservation area. The reserve hosts high numbers of all animals that one could see in Namibia, however, it is well known for predator sightings, which you can hope for on your afternoon / evening game drive today.

We aim to arrive at camp around midday, giving us ample time to set up camp and enjoy lunch before we join the afternoon activity where we have the chance to see some of the cheetah currently part of the AfriCat rehabilitation program. After our educational tour, we join an afternoon game drive on the reserve before enjoying our first magical sunset in the Namibian bush.

Accommodation: Okonjima Campsite
Meals: Lunch, Dinner
Distance: 300kms

Day 2: Okaukuejo– Etosha Game Reserve

Today we head to the world re-known national park, Etosha.

We stop briefly at Otjiwarongo to stock up on snacks and fresh produce before continuing on to Etosha National Park.

Upon entering the gate, we start game viewing on our short drive to our base camp; Okaukuejo.

We aim to arrive at camp by midday so that we can set up, eat lunch and head out on an afternoon game drive.

Etosha is unlike any other, and our game drives take us from waterhole to waterhole in search of predators, plains game, birds and simply enjoy the scenery of this wonderful National Park.

We return to camp just before sunset, and whilst dinner is cooking you will have time to acquaint yourselves with why we stay in this campsite as you will be able to sit back, relax and awe over this incredible waterhole where elephant, rhinos, giraffe, lion and hyena are frequent visitors.

Accommodation: Okaukuejo Campsite
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance: 350kms

Day 3: Okaukuejo, Etosha National Park

An early morning start is on the cards for us this morning with a quick cup of coffee and light snack before embarking on our full day game drive at sunrise.

When it comes to a safari, an early start allow us a bigger chance of catching a glimpse of predators that are returning “home” after a night of hunting. We make our way across the park, visiting various waterholes and enjoy a late breakfast at one of the picnic spots within the park.

We take an easy drive now in search of resting animals in the later morning sun and arrive at Halali where we can take a dip in the pool, visit the waterhole and have lunch before heading north to the Etosha Pan. A salt pan so large it can be seen from space.

We continue our game drive to look for the Big 4 on our way back to Okaukuejo, arriving at camp by sunset and enjoying our last visit to the waterhole before and after dinner, which is highly recommended.

Accommodation: Okaukuejo Campsite
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Hoada

An early sunrise morning again with a good breakfast can be expected today along with a short game drive back to the park gate. We travel west today towards the Kunene region to visit the Otjikandero Himba Village.

The Himba people are one of the last tribes in Namibia who still embrace their ancient culture and customs and today, we get to observe this interesting headstrong community by partaking in a guided tour around the village.

Here we will have the chance to get to know these interesting people and possibly learn their way of life while interacting with the Himba people and to share a little of our own culture with them.
We continue west through Kamanjab before continuing on to the Hoada Community Campsite, which is a spectacular campsite surrounded by large granite rocks and an endless view of mapone trees and red sands.

Here we set up camp before enjoying a leisurely afternoon and watching the sunset from the Hoada deck with a cold beverage In hand.

Accommodation: Hoada Campsite
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance: 310kms

Day 5: Hoada to Cape Cross, Namibia

Today our adventure takes us through the infamous Skeleton Coast National Park all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. The coastline itself is a very hostile but fascinating area known for the Welwitschia mirabilis, the Northern Namibia sand sea, the derelict oil rig near Toscanini, the Huab lagoon and the diminishing remains of various shipwrecks. On exiting the national park we stop for Instagram worthy photos of the iconic skull and crossbones gate.

We arrive at Cape Cross Seal Reserve late afternoon. The reserve is home to one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of Cape Fur seals and during breeding season (November-December) up to 200 000+ seals can be spotted basking on the beach, certainly a sight and smell to behold.

Tonight we set up camp at Cape Cross campsite and have the opportunity for a sunset walk on the beach. Dinner is prepared by our guide over an open fire.

Accommodation: Cape Cross Campsite
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Distance: 190kms

Day 6: Cape Cross – Swakopmund, Skeleton Coast

The rare and wonderful lie-in can be enjoyed this morning as we are in no rush and everyone can come through for breakfast to enjoy a tasty cooked breakfast.

Our plan today is to take a slow drive down the coast towards Swakopmund for an early afternoon arrival. Along the way, we will stop at Zeila Shipwreck which is one of the latest victims of the Skeleton Coast from as recent as 2007.

Upon arrival into Swakopmund you will be dropped off at your choice of accommodation for the night, or alternatively your consultant can book you into the accommodation we suggest. Most flights departing from Walvis Bay airport will not depart at time that you would make it to the airport and therefore we recommend booking an additional night in Swakopund.

If you do stay the evening, know that this town that has lovely restaurants, dinner tonight is at your own expense as this will allow you to eat some great local meats, amazing seafood and hearty veggie meals where you may go tonight – it’s just a nice change-up

Accommodation: Own Arrangements
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch
Distance: 385 kms

 

Onward Travel Plans

Due to circumstances beyond our control while on tour (such as border crossings, traffic, breakdowns and delays, etc), the end time on the last day cannot be guaranteed. Therefore we strongly recommend you stay the night and fly out the next day. Please consult with your booking consultant.
