Itinerary

Day 1

Windhoek

Sunday. Welcome to Namibia! Upon arrival at Windhoek airport, you'll be met and transferred to our campsite in the town centre. At 17:00, there will be a welcome meeting at the campsite with fellow travellers and tour crew.
Overnight: Windhoek

Day 2

Etosha National Park

Windhoek - Etosha. Leaving Windhoek, we head to Etosha National Park. This 20,000 km2 desert nature reserve is home to many species of wildlife, including the oryx and springbok, and is easily explored on the gravel roads stretching across the park. After dinner, sit by the waterhole and watch the animals quench their thirst as the evening approaches.
Overnight: Etosha National Park  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Days 3-4

Etosha NP

Today we embark on a long game drive through the park, keeping an eye out for the many game options. The varying vegetation creates changing habitats, and so we will see different animals in each section of the park. At the end of the day, we head to our nearby campsite, with time for a dip in the pool and a leisurely dinner. The next day, we continue driving south through Etosha to our second campsite.
Overnight: Etosha National Park area  |  Breakfast x 2, Lunch x 2, Dinner x 2

Day 5

Brandberg

Etosha - Brandberg. We depart south to the Brandberg desert area, where Namibia's tallest mountain can be found. We may have a chance to explore depending on arrival time.
Overnight: Brandberg  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Days 6-7

Swakopmund

Brandberg - Spitzkoppe - Swakopmund. Leaving Brandberg, we travel to Swakopmund today, with a brief stop at the Spitzkoppe peak. Swakopmund was established by the Germans in 1892, and the colonial influence can still be seen in the city's elegant architecture. Enjoy some free time to explore the restaurants & cafes, arts & crafts shops, and of course the coastal beach.

Spend the following day at leisure, relaxing or partaking in one of many optional excursions available. Some of our fellow passengers may leave us here, to be replaced by new passengers joining us for the final leg of our trip.
Overnight: Swakopmund  |  Breakfast x 2

Days 8-9

Sossusvlei

Swakopmund - Sesriem. Leaving Swakopmund, we head south to the industrial Walvis Bay before turning inland and toward the desert. Continuing our journey, we enter the Namib-Naukluft Park in one of the oldest deserts in the world. We base ourselves at Sesriem, a great place to experience the Namib and its many moods. A short distance away is Sossusvlei, surrounded by a dramatic sea of sand dunes reputed to be the highest in the world. Magnificent views of the desert can be seen from the top of the dunes, some over 300 m high. We spend the afternoon exploring this amazing area.
Overnight: Sesriem  |  Breakfast x 2, Lunch x 2, Dinner x 2

Day 10

Fish River Canyon

Sesriem - Fish River Canyon. Heading out early, we see the sunrise over this beautiful area and we leave the serenity of the dunes to head south to the Fish River Canyon. At 161 km long, 27 km wide and about 550 m deep, it’s the second largest canyon in the world. The outer canyon was formed by tectonic activity, while the erosion of the Fish River formed the inner canyon. A road follows the eastern rim, giving us access to several viewing points from where we can take in the spectacular vistas.
Overnight: Fish River Canyon  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 11

Gariep River

Fish River Canyon - Gariep River (South Africa). This morning we continue south, where, after a short drive, we reach the Gariep River - the natural land border between Namibia and South Africa. We camp at a beautiful campsite on the South African bank of the river. This afternoon we take a half-day canoe trip on the beautiful Gariep River, affording us the opportunity of some bird watching or just a scenic and relaxing paddle. Tonight there’s a chance for some fun at the wonderful camp bar overlooking the river!
Overnight: Gariep River  |  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 12

Fantastic tour that gives a real insight into the wildlife of Namibia. The game drives in Etosha were fabulous and we had great sights and sounds of hyenas feeding and elephants protecting a baby in their group. Our guide, John, worked incredibly hard liaising with the head office in order to allow 4 members of our group to stay in Etosha Park itself for a second night and take part in the night safari.

The tents and meals were of a good standard and the roll mats a lot more comfier than last time I did over landing 15 years ago. Remarkably, I recognised our driver on this trip as he was my tour leader on that overland trip such a long time ago. All the crew were great and good humoured and worked exceptionally hard.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable trip that I've already been recommending to my friends.
