This 10 Day Safari is all about the highlights of Namibia. It is filled with a memorable wildlife, scenery and cultural experiences. You will visit first one of the oldest tribes in the world, the Bushmen. Afterwards Etosha National Park will be next on the list, one of Africa’s known parks. Your third Namibia highlight will be another nomadic tribe, the OvaHimba within the safari. You will then be going to Damaraland, providing a different set of scenery. One of the most visited area will be the coastal area, where it is a combination of scenic, historic, cultural and a hint of wildlife experiences. The last highlight that you will be visiting is in the south, the heart of the mighty dunes, Sossusvlei.

Day 1: Windhoek

Your very special African voyage to Namibia commences today with your arrival at Windhoek airport. A transfer representative will meet you in the arrival hall with your name on a signboard where you will be transferred to Naankuse for your first activity. Afterwards you will be transferred to your hotel based in Windhoek, enjoying a lovely dinner and rest up for a wonderful journey that starts tomorrow morning. Please note dinner is not included for tonight and will be for your own account. 

Day 2: Etosha National Park (East)

After breakfast you will go for a complimentary Windhoek City Tour with your guide. Afterwards you will travel to Etosha, where you will be staying the next 3 nights

Day 3: Etosha National Park (West)

From here we will make our way across the park in a full morning game drive to the western boundary.

Day 4: Etosha National Park (West)

After breakfast you will travel to a Himba village to do an excursion. You will travel back to the lodge and have lunch, where you will doing an afternoon game drive in Etosha.

Day 5: Damaraland

After breakfast this morning, we head directly west, through dry riverbeds and rocky plains, until we reach the edge of Damaraland, where the landscape suddenly changes into one of the most spectacular and dramatic in Namibia. Damaraland boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It is also the southernmost roaming ground for the rare Black Rhino and the ‘desert adapted Elephant’, which we will keep searching for all along. After a picnic lunch en route, we will stop to admire the 260 million years old logs of the Petrified Forest, as well as a beautiful, impressive specimen of Welwitschia mirabilis, the longest-lived plant on Earth. Before we check into our lodge this evening, we visit the geological formations of the ‘Burnt Mountain’ and the ‘Organ Pipes’, which are particularly stunning in the late afternoon golden light. After sunset, we quickly occupy our rooms and gather for a great dinner.

Day 6: Swakopmund

After breakfast, we start the morning with a visit to Twyfelfontein world heritage site, where bushman communities engraved and painted over 2500 pictures some 6000 years ago. This will be before we reach the abandoned mining town of Uis. We will take a short break here to photograph the buildings and learn about the history of mining in Namibia, before continuing towards the Atlantic Coast.

Day 7: Swakopmund

After a relaxing breakfast we will depart for a Living Desert Adventure in the Namib Desert where we will learn more about the fauna and flora that have adapted to survive in this harsh but beautiful environment. Amongst other creatures we will look for Side-winder and Horned Adders, scorpions, Namaqua Chameleons, Reticulated Lizards, legless skink and Palmato Gecko. Once we are back in Swakopmund we enjoy lunch and then have the afternoon available to explore the town or perhaps finish the day with a quad-biking and dune-boarding adventure. Other optional activities that could be arranged include scenic flights over the coast and dunes.

Day 8: Sossusvlei 

After a hearty breakfast we will be in the vehicle and make our way south, via the Namib Naukluft Park as well as through the Kuiseb and Gaub Canyons. We will reach our accommodation as the sun is disappearing behind the horizon, painting the surrounding sand dunes flaming red. A nice dinner and an early bed time will endure that we have enough energies for the early start tomorrow.

Day 9: Sossusvlei

Today we will rise before the sun does today, and will be in the vicinity of the world’s highest, bright-red sand dunes when the first rays appear over the horizon. This is a truly magical time of the day here, as the giant, dark shapes suddenly dress in colour and the mosaic of shades and sunlight creates incredible photo opportunities. From our accommodation, we drive in the ancient bed of the extinct Tsauchab River, stopping at every great location, climbing a few dunes and slowly making our way to the world famous Dead Vlei, where red dunes provide a breath-taking backdrop to centuries old, dry trees standing in the desert. It will take all morning to explore this true wonderland, so we will only be back at our accommodation after noon. A nice lunch and a siesta will ensure that we are ready for further exploration in the evening, though. At this time, for one last excursion, we visit the 18 million years old and 30 meters deep Sesriem Canyon, carved out by the Tsauchab River while it was still flowing. Just before sunset, we get back to our lodge and enjoy our last dinner together

Day 10: Departure

Today we will make our way back to Windhoek. We plan to arrive in Windhoek by late afternoon and unless you have an evening flight home you will spend one night in a Hotel located in the centre of the city. This will be the perfect opportunity for some last minute curio shopping. This is the official end of our tour
