Welcome to Namibia!
Today you will be picked up by your guide and taken to your accommodation near the city center of the capital of Namibia, Windhoek, meaning the ''windy corner''.
If your plane doesn't arrive too late, you will be doing a short city tour of the city before heading towards your accommodation. After refreshing, your guide will explain the tour and will be able to answer all of your questions.
Enjoy later on a traditional dinner in town in the famous restaurant 'Joe's beer house'.
Days 2 & 3
We leave the capital of the country to go deep into the soul of Namibia, the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world and home to the most magnificent dunes in Africa.
Our first stop will be at the famous little farm of Solitaire where we will have lunch.
We will then head to our accommodation where we will be spending two nights.
Take the rest of the day to relax at the lodge and enjoy its facilities.
On our second day we will take the time to explore what the Namib Desert has to offer. We will first climb the famous Dune 45, followed by a walk between the trees of the famous Deadvlei and admire the biggest dune of the Namib desert Big Daddy, the we continue towards Sossusvlei, before ending our adventure at the Sesriem Canyon.
We will have lunch in one of the restaurants of the area, before heading back to our accommodation.
Enjoy the rest of the day at the lodge.
Days 4 & 5
On this day we will be heading towards the adventure capital of the country, Swakopmund.
Upon arrival we will do an orientation tour of the small coastal city and then take you to one of the adventures center where you will be able to book your optional activities for the following day.
Enjoy the rest of the afternoon by talking a walk-in town before going to a restaurant for dinner.
Day 05 is a free day for activities or to relax.
Today we head towards Spiztkoppe, famously know for it’s peaks formation and bushman paintings.
The granite in this area is more than 120 million years old and the highest outcrop rises about 1,728 metres above sea level. The peaks stand out dramatically from the flat surrounding plains, a truly amazing sight.
After settling into our campsite at the base of Spitzkoppe’s monumental boulders, we head out on an afternoon walk to Bushman Paradise, a cave with one of the finest collections of ancient rock art in Namibia.
Once back at camp, you can take the time to explore the area and watch the rocks change colours as the sun begins to sets.
Today we make your way to Twyfelfontein—Namibia’s first UNESCO World Heritage site—to see some of Africa’s largest concentrations of petroglyphs. It is estimated that here are more than 2,500 rock carvings in this area.
Marvel at these remarkable engravings, carved by f Bushmen or Nama artists estimated to have lived near Twyfelfontein at least 5,000 years ago.
We then continue towards the petrified forest where we will see a deposit of large tree trunks that have "turned to stone" through a process of diagenesis.
Lunch will be on the way before arrivng at the end of the afternoon to our accommodation.
Days 8, 9 & 10
Etosha National Park
For the next three days we will be doing full day game drives inside the Etosha National Park.
In the language of the Ovambo tribe, Etosha means ‘great white place’, with its dry pan that’s 130 km’s long and up to 50km’s wide in places, it is comfortably the largest salt pan in Africa and is the park’s most distinctive and dramatic feature, visible even from space.
We will be spending our days finding the best wildlife sighting while doing game drives with our own vehicle.
We heads towards the Waterberg Plateau where we will be spending one night.
The Plateau declared as a national park in 1972, with 50 km long and 16 km wide table mountain rising from the plains to a height of up to 200 meters with fascinating geological genesis.
Before checking in we will be doing a cultural visit and visit one of the Himba village of the area.
This is good and interesting way to learn more about their traditions and culture.
We then check into our accommodation and in the afternoon we will depart on a 2-3 h walk to climb the plateau and admire the views before heading down for dinner time.
In the morning we will depart on a cultural experience to meet one of the other peoples of Namibia, the Hereros.
We will get to learn about their way of living before we depart towards Windhoek.
Once in Windhoek you will have some free time before heading out for dinner.
After our breakfasts we will head towards
the Naankuse Foundation, a conservation charity dedicated to preserving the landscapes, cultures and wildlife of Namibia. Originating as a small wildlife sanctuary nestled in the Namibian bush, Naankuse is now a world-famous conservation organisation.
The Naankuse Foundation Wildlife Sanctuary provides a safe haven and second chance for countless injured, orphaned and conflict animals. Wherever possible our aim is to release animals back into the wild.
We will embark in one of the conservation activities during the day to learn more about this establishment that helps to preserve the wildlife.
Return to the guesthouse in the afternoon.
Time to say goodbye, your guide will take you to the airport according to your flight schedule.
Go well and hope to see you in another adventure!
