Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek, Namibia

We will begin our Namibian adventure at 14:00 in the capital, Windhoek. An introduction to the tour and a meeting and greet precede the excursion to Windhoek, where we visit the city’s attractions before enjoying a meal at Joe’s Beerhouse, an infamous Windhoek establishment. As we prepare for our next adventure, we spend tonight in comfort at our hotel.

Meals: No meals included on this day
Accommodation: Hotel Safari
Included Highlights: Windhoek city tour

Day 2: Namib Desert Reserve, Namibia

As we leave the city lights behind, we are drawn into the heart of the Namib, surrounded by its open plains, red dunes, towering mountains and constantly shifting landscapes. On our way to the Greenfire Desert Camp late in the afternoon, we pass through a conservancy that forms part of the vast Namib Rand Nature Reserve, and the camp is nestled against a rock outcrop in a remote area of the conservancy. The camp will be our home for two nights. Several desert-adapted species of fauna and flora can be found within the reserve, as well as many animal species. During our stay here, you will enjoy an extensive walk in addition to a day and night desert drive.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Greenfire Desert Lodge
Included Highlights: Private Desert Camp, Private Desert Reserve

Day 3: Namib Desert Reserve, Namibia

In the morning, we awaken to views of the desert that extend far beyond the eye’s ability to see. The animals in this reserve live in completely natural environments, and are allowed to move freely throughout the entire reserve. In order to gain an understanding of this unique desert flora and fauna, our expert guide will assist us today with an ecology walk in this scenic environment, searching for animals, foot prints, and signs of the behaviour and strategies used by these animals to survive in these harsh conditions.

The guests have the option of relaxing at the camp during the day or exploring the surrounding area on foot during the warmer months. After lunch, we embark on a desert drive that takes us through and over the magnificent dunes. In the evening, while the sun dips over the landscape, you can enjoy a traditional sundowner drink. As it begins to darken, we make our way slowly back to camp, hoping that we might be able to encounter some of the desert’s nocturnal creatures.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Greenfire Desert Lodge
Included Highlight: Private Desert Lodge, Open vehicle desert drive, Desert walk
Distance: Desert drive

Day 4: Sossusvlei Dunes, Namibia

After leaving early, we travel along the endless desert plains to the Sesriem Canyon and the incredible red Sossusvlei sand dunes – reputed to be the highest in the world. Upon entering the heart of the dunes, we have some time to climb these impressive sand mountains before we continue in a 4×4 transfer to Sossusvlei and Deadvlei – which are both clay pans characterized by dead camel thorn trees against the white pan floor. The four-wheel drive vehicles return us to our vehicle after allowing us to explore these truly unique sites on foot. Our afternoon excursion takes us to the Sesriem Canyon, after which we leave for our campsite for the night

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Lodge Accommodation
Included Highlights: Sossusvlei, Deadvlei, 4×4 transfer, Dune climbing

Day 5 – 6: Swakopmund, Namibia

Our journey begins in the Kuiseb Canyon, and continues through the Namib-Naukluft National Park to the port town of Walvis Bay, and then on to Swakopmund, where German influence was still evident in the late 1800’s and where we spend two nights in comfortable accommodations. Explore this holiday town and its surroundings thoroughly and enjoy our evening meals (at own expense) at local restaurants.

Swallow Mountains is a must-see destination for any visitor, and guests can participate in an array of adventure activities. Our guests have the opportunity to partake in quad biking, sand boarding, and skydiving while here at their own expense. There are a variety of restaurants and shops, where one can get a feel for the local culture if one simply wishes to relax.

Day 7: Skeleton Coast – Spitzkoppe, Namibia

The Skeleton Coast is a barren stretch of coastline that runs along the Atlantic Ocean, littered with ship wrecks. We head north today along this harsh stretch of coast. More than 100,000 seals take refuge at Cape Cross, a magnificent breeding ground for Cape fur seals.

Our journey then takes us through the vast desert to the iconic Brandberg Mountain, Namibia’s tallest mountain, where we will see ancient rock art. In the event that you are not up for walking, you may remain in your camp and enjoy the beautiful surrounding scenery.

This evening, we will camp at the bottom of the mountain in the hope of spotting a rare desert elephant.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Spitzkoppe Accommodation
Included Highlight: Cape Cross Seal Colony, Spitzkoppe Granite Mountains

Day 8: Brandberg, Namibia

Having explored and climbed the granite boulders of Spitzkoppe, before venturing through the vast desert to Brandberg Mountain, Namibia’s highest mountain, we make a roadside stop along the way to interact with local Himba people, before visiting the iconic White Lady bushmen paintings at the base of the Brandberg mountain. The trip concludes late in the afternoon when we arrive at the lodge. Our rooms are snuggled at the foot of the mountain, so in the event you’re interested in sightings of the rare desert elephant, we offer an optional excursion.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Brandberg Accommodation
Included Highlight: Himba tribe interaction (subject to availability)
Optional Activities: Game drive to find the rare Desert elephants

Day 9 – 10: Etosha National Park, Namibia

We continue our trip to Etosha today, which takes us through Damaraland, the land of the Damara people and region. Before reaching our lodge for the night, we will stop for a roadside lunch.

As we travel north, we enter the renowned Etosha National Park, one of the highlights of the trip. We explore the park for two days, becoming one with nature. This is a time for us to go on extensive game drives, visit little water holes, explore, and enjoy our time in the park as much as we can. Our game drives will take place in a truck. We will shorten the game drive on one day by driving to Okekeujo waterhole where we will wait for the animals to come and quench their thirst for approximately 2 hours before leaving the park in time.

In the evening, why not take a sunset game drive (time permitting) on private land adjacent to the parks (drinks included).

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner x2
Accommodation: Lodge – Etosha area outside the park
Included Highlight: Etosha National Park – 2 days in the park and extensive game viewing opportunities, Brandberg white lady Hike, Damaraland
