Detailed Itinerary

Day 1 - 2: Windhoek

Your guide will be waiting for you at the international airport near Windhoek. (Please note that the guide only goes to the airport according to the Euro Wings flight times. If you have chosen another flight, you will have to organize and pay for an alternative airport transfer. Please let us know in advance and we will help you gladly with organising the transfer.

 

The guide will take you to the guest house in Windhoek. This is also where the Meet and Greet takes place, where the entire trip is discussed in detail and all the documents for your trip are handed over to you. The rest of the day is at your leisure, for example to explore the city or to do some shopping for the tour, or you can relax at the pool after the exertion of the journey.

 

Windhoek is the capital of Namibia and offers a variety of restaurants, shops and accommodation. The city is clean and well organized. Worth seeing in Windhoek are the Christ Church, as well as the “Tinten Palast” and the craft markets in city center.

 

In the evening the group meets for dinner in the restaurant of the guest house.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Windhoek-01

Day 2 - 3: Namib Desert

The journey goes via Rehoboth and further past the Naukluft mountains into the great desert landscapes of the Namib. The guide will happily stop for a few photo stops along the way and lunch packs are available for everyone around midday.

 

In the afternoon you will reach the beautiful lodge, where you can spend the rest of the day, preferably with a cool drink by the pool. If you like, you can take a short hike in the afternoon and enjoy the beautiful landscape. With a bit of luck you might spot some desert antelope in the distance.

 

In the evening there will be dinner with a great view at the Lodge Restaurant.

Day 3 - 4: Sossusvlei

Your day starts early in the morning so that you can still experience the beautiful light of the morning hours. First the journey goes to Sesriem, the entrance gate to the Namib Naukluft Park. The gate opens at sunrise. Then a narrow tar road takes you past beautiful landscapes and high dunes to Deadvlei and Sossusvlei. A 1.5 km hike takes you over clay flats and a small dune to the ancient, dried up acacia trees of the Dead Vlei, which are now world famous.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Dead-Vlei-Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the largest nature reserve in Africa. The most famous photographs of Namibia undoubtedly come from Sossusvlei. The images are stunning with the intense red dunes and sharp lines. The dunes in this area are the highest in the world, reaching immense heights of almost 400 meters. Climb Dune 45 and enjoy the fantastic view over the dune sea. Another stop is Deadvlei, a dry lake with tree stumps that has become an almost surrealistic landscape. Sossusvlei means “dead end swamp” because it is where the dunes that prevent the Tsauchab River from reaching the Atlantic Ocean converge. However, due to the drought in the Namib Desert, this river rarely flows that far at all, hence the pan is dry most years. However, during a good rainy season, the Tsauchab River fills the salt pan and visitors from all over the world flock to the area to experience this spectacular site.

 

Around noon you can then enjoy your packed lunch under the camel thorn trees by the Sossusvlei Dry Pan. Afterwards the drive goes back to the entrance gate at Sesriem, where the Sesriem Canyon can also be explored. In the afternoon you will reach the beautiful lodge again.

Day 4 - 5: Swakopmund

On this route, the Namib shows itself from many different sides. You drive past mountains, red dunes, Gaub and Kuiseb Canyon and later the barren areas of the Namib. On particularly hot days, you can see a Mirage. On the way you can always see typical desert animals, oryx, springbok, ostrich and with a bit of luck a giraffe.

 

The small gas station and rest stop, Solitaire, is a great place to stop. It is very conveniently located on your tour of south western Namibia and on the way to Swakopmund. In the small Solitaire Bakery there are many delicacies, including the best apple pie in Namibia.

 

Once you reach the Atlantic, you can take a short trip to the harbor and lagoon of Walvis Bay. Hundreds of flamingos often cavort here in the shallow water of the salty lagoon. From there you drive the last 40 km on a beautiful tar road, always along the sea, to Swakopmund, probably the most German town in the southern hemisphere.

Day 5 - 6: Swakopmund

Today you have the choice of one of the two activities, which must be booked with us in advance. (Included in tour package)

Living Desert Tour
You will be picked up from your hotel by an activity operator at 8:00 am sharp today. Then it goes by off-road vehicle in the dune strip south of Swakopmund, in search of the “Little 5”. This is a very exciting ride where you get to know a lot about the dune ecosystem with its many interesting inhabitants. Around noon you will be brought back to your hotel. The afternoon is at leisure where you can further explore Swakopmund and the surrounding area.

Boat Safari
These cruises focus on seeing marine life, mainly heavyside and bottlenose dolphins and the Cape fur seal. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and the wonderful Walvis Bay oysters while these animals play with the boat. You will be picked up at the hotel reception in the morning. The excursion departs from Walvis Bay Harbour, from where you take a catamaran to Pelican Point, home to the seals. Around noon you will be taken back to the hotel in Swakopmund.

Day 6 - 7: Twyfelfontein

We leave the cold Altlanic today. From Swakopmund we drive north along the Atlantic coast to Hentiesbaai. We continue inland, past Namibia’s highest mountain, the mighty Brandberg, which owes its name to the fiery glow that is created when the last rays of the sun ignite it at the end of the day. In the afternoon we reach Twyfelfontein. There is the possibility this afternoon to visit the famous stone engravings and the stone organs of Twyfelfontein. You can then arrange this with your guide. Admission to the sights is not included in the tour price and must be paid for by yourself.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Twyfelfontein-01

Day 7 - 8: Twyfelfontein

After breakfast, you will head into the region’s dry rivers in search of the famous desert-adapted elephants. These animals roam the region almost all year round, but there are times when the animals are simply untraceable. While it might not work out with the elephants, you will definitely be treated to beautiful desert landscapes and a lovely day trip.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Twyfelfontein-02

Day 8 - 9: Etosha West

On the way to the Etosha National Park, we pass the area of ​​the petrified trees. We stop here and marvel at the mighty petrified tree trunks. In the afternoon we arrive at the Hobatere Concession area which borders the western Etosha National Park. Lions, elephants and antelope can often be seen in the concession area. If you want, you can sign up for a night safari at the lodge.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Etosha-National-Park-01

Day 9 - 10: Etosha South

Today you spend the whole on safari in the Etosha National Park. The route will take us from the western Galton Gate to the Anderson Gate south of Okaukuejo. We will start after an early breakfast, as progress is slow today. There are thousands of animals of all kinds to discover in Etosha National Park and most of them can be found at the waterholes, depending on the season it can be quite busy and you will find yourself surrounded by hundreds of springbok, zebra and elephant.

 

Animal watching should be done with patience, you drive comfortably from waterhole to waterhole and stay there for a while. Our safari vehicle is particularly suitable here, as it has a pop-up roof that is great for taking photos and observing. We enjoy our packed lunches at one of the rest areas in the park. In the afternoon we leave the park in the south and spend the night at the nearby lodge.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Etosha-National-Park-02

Day 10 - 11: Etosha East

Our safari starts right after breakfast. We drive back into the park via the Andersson Gate. From Okaukuejo we drive along the southern edge of the salt pan. This area is very popular with the animals and due to the sparse vegetation you have the opportunity to see the animals from afar. We take a lunch break at the Halali rest stop.

 

We then continue to the old German Fort Namutoni, which dates back to the time of the Schutztruppe. We must have left the park by sunset at the latest. A beautiful lodge awaits on the east side of the park.

Day 11 - 12: Waterberg Plateau National Park

Today we leave the Etosha region and drive via Tsumeb and Grootfontein to the Waterberg Plateau. Tarmac and gravel roads will take us to the beautiful Waterberg. Millions of years ago, this area was once a swamp where dinosaurs roamed. The swamp was petrified and the area around it has been eroded away. What was left was a beautiful red and fertile Plateau, where you can still find dinosaur footprints in the sandstone. We recommend the guided plateau hike & the Rhino Drive, but the other hiking routes are also very exciting to explore on your own.

Namibia-Private-Guided-Safari-Tours-Waterberg-Plateau-01

Plateau hike
Your hiking guide will climb the Waterberg plateau with you, explain the nature of the park to you and give you an insight into the everyday life and culture of the Herero people who live in this area. A great view of the valley and the plains of the Kalahari awaits you here.

 

Rhino Drive
Traveling like the Bushmen. With the tracker, you can track down Oryx or Hartebeest, Kudu or giraffe in the game-rich nature reserve – or even meet rhinos at eye level.

 

(The activities on the Waterberg are not included and can be booked and paid for on site.)

Day 12 - 13: Erindi Private Game Reserve

A relatively short drive today brings us to the vast Erindi Private Nature Reserve. After arrival you can have lunch at the Lodge Restaurant today.

 

A safari is booked for the afternoon, where you can observe a large variety of animals. There is also a lot of action from the restaurant terrace, with the water hole below, so the visit to Erindi rounds off the tour perfectly.
