At Windhoek International Airport you will be met by a representative of the Car Hire Company that will take you directly to Windhoek. You will then be met by your guide and he will assist you with the procedure of receiving your vehicle. Thereafter, the Guide will discuss your tour in detail with you. Once all has been discussed, the Guide will accompany you to your guesthouse, where you can relax and enjoy the afternoon at own leisure.
For dinner all tour participants will enjoy their first night in Namibia together at a local restaurant.
Today your big adventure starts. After breakfast you will be met by the guide at the guesthouse, where a short briefing takes place. Then we will depart Windhoek and drive in convoy, heading mostly in the northwesterly direction of Namibia. In the afternoon we will reach our destination, the beautiful Spitzkoppe.
Here we will set up camp at the foot of the mighty Spitzkoppe mountain and enjoy the first night under the starry skies of Namibia.
Spitzkoppe is the Matterhorn of Namibia. It is a mountain of volcanic origin, which surmounts its surroundings at about 700 meters. The mighty granite bubbles form a spectacular landscape, which is very popular with photographers and climbers. Here you can visit ancient rock engravings from the Bushmen tribe, the famous “Rock Pool”, which is sometimes filled with water in the rainy season, and the “Rock Arch” which is also a famous photo opportunity.
Today our off-road adventure through the distant Damaraland begins. We drive in a convoy towards Brandberg, the highest mountain in Namibia. In our off-road adventure, we can encounter desert elephants, lions, rhinos and other desert animals. In the afternoon we will set up our wild camp in a secluded and secret gorge. Rugged mountain ranges and steep slopes with dry valleys dominate Damaraland and promise unforgettable impressions. With some of the most beautiful landscapes in Namibia, Damaraland is a pristine wilderness rift where you can explore savannas, gorges, sandy slopes and mountains. You can watch the majestic animals that live in this barren landscape and defy the scorching heat.
Our beautiful wild camp is located near the massive Brandberg. A hill made of large granite balls without protection from the southwest wind, which often blows here in the afternoon. Enjoy the great panorama over the kargen desert area with view on the most mountain Namibias. Our wild bush camp will have a mobile shower and a bush toilet. We will sleep on the cars in the roof tents and enjoy a perfect night under the stars – without artificial lights that spoil the view. Dinner is cooked around the campfire. Together we will sit around the campfire and enjoy the tranquility of the desert.
After a good night in our tents, we enjoy a hearty breakfast. Our journey continues in a northerly direction across the fascinating desert landscapes of Damaraland. Later we drive through a dry river, where desert elephants are often seen. Of course you have to be very careful because the large mammals can hide behind the bushes and bushes. These large, powerful animals should be viewed from a safe distance. We sleep in the middle of the wilderness again today and enjoy another night around the campfire.
Today the adventure continues through the fascinating Damaraland, always looking for the desert animals that inhabit this area. Later in the day we arrive at the Palmwag Lodge camp site, where we can spend the afternoon by the pool or on a guided safari.
We will be driving on sandy ground most of the time today as we will spend the day in one of the most beautiful dry rivers in Namibia. These dry rivers are also the lifeline for various wild animals, as you will find water and food here. Today we set up our wild camp near such a river and enjoy the tranquility of this deserted area.
Today we explore the areas adjacent to Skeleton Coast Park. These areas are very barren, but the landscape is very impressive. A mostly rocky tack leads us further to the Khumib River. The dry river bed of the Khumib serves as our wild camp tonight. We will set up camp under an ancient Leadwood tree and enjoy the silence and freedom that nature offers us here.
The journey continues for quite a while today in various dry rivers. These river courses are a lifeline in the desert and provide food and water for the desert animals that live here. The most common animals include the desert elephant, giraffe and big cats such as lion, leopard and cheetah. Various antelope species such as oryx, kudu, springbok and zebra are also often found here.
In the afternoon we reach the village of Sesfontein and continue to our beautiful campsite at Khowarib Lodge. This lodge is located directly on the Hoanib River. Here the river flows through a narrow gorge called Khowarib.
A challenging off-road track leads us today through the beautiful Khowarib Gorge. The last few kilometers are on good tar roads to our destination where our beautiful lodge is located.
The next morning your guide is going to say fare-well, and you can continue with a selfdrive-tour. (we will gladly assist you with the planning of this part of your tour.)
