Day 1

Sossusvlei, Namib Desert

Sossusvlei, Namib Desert

After breakfast and meeting your guide for the safari, we will depart for Sossusvlei. We will drive through the Khomas Hochland and down the escarpment via one of the scenic mountain passes into the Namib Desert. This journey will take about 4 hours depending on the number of stops for photographs. Dinner and your accommodation will be at one of the best lodges in the area perfectly situated to explore the surrounding desert and its attractions.
Namib is the oldest desert and boasts the highest sand dunes in the world. This region is one of the most spectacular areas of Namibia and is always one of the highlights of any safari. The name Sossusvlei refers to the vlei or pan into which the seasonal Tsauchab River flows in years of exceptional rainfall. The neighboring Dead Vlei with the ancient dead Camel Thorn trees is one of the most photographic sites in the good early morning light. The Sesriem canyon is a narrow gorge about 1 km long and is well worth a visit.

Day 7

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park

Today our journey continues to Etosha National Park where we will spend the next 4 nights. Etosha is one of Africa’s biggest and best national parks and one of the main tourist attractions in Namibia. It is 22 912sq km in size of which the Etosha Pan, a shallow depression that only holds water after good rainy seasons, is 5000sq km in size. Etosha is known for its spectacular game viewing and the waterholes attract huge numbers of game in the dry season when all the open water has dried up. During the rainy season, the park is transformed into a green oasis and this is the time you'll find young of various animal species in huge numbers. 114 species of mammals are found in the park and it is the best place in the world to see the black rhino. One of the highlights of the park is the flood-lit waterholes at the 3 main camps where game viewing continues long after the sun has set.

Best Time to Visit July to September (Animals come to water)

Day 8

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park

After breakfast, we will do morning and afternoon games drives and relax at the pool or camp waterhole between drives. The area and vegetation is very different to the southeastern and eastern part of the park and the Hartmann’s mountain zebra can be found here.

In this area and with a more undulating landscape, it makes for a very different wildlife experience. White dust and clay which makes up the Etosha Pan turns to a reddish brown soil during this time which may lead you to believe you have entered an entirely new park when you visit.

Day 10

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park

We will do morning and afternoon games drives and relax at the pool or camp waterhole between the drives.

In the vast arid space of Northern Namibia lies one of Southern Africa’s best-loved wildlife sanctuaries. The Etosha National Park offers excellent game viewing in one of Africa’s most accessible venues. Zebra and springbok are scattered across the endless horizon, while the many waterholes attract endangered black rhinoceros, lion, elephant and large numbers of antelope.

Etosha, meaning ‘place of dry water’, encloses a huge, flat calcrete depression (or pan) of about 5 000sq km. The ‘Pan’ provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirages to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland and thorn scrub. The pan itself contains water only after very good rains and sometimes for only a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of blue-green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.
