Desert, Vast Landscape & Wilderness
Our eyes glance over the seemingly endless wide plains of the Namib Desert. The desert looks lifeless, but there is much to discover and experience. The waters of the cold Atlantic carry valuable nutrients that provide an interesting marine life. Bizarre granite rock formations, such as the Spitzkoppe and the Erongo Mountains, give us more insights into the enchanting wilderness of the country, along with its traces of history. The Etosha National Park, with its vast and wide plains and abundant wildlife, gives us an insight into the natural habitat of animals and plants. Namibia in its entirety, with its vastness, the desert, its wilderness is a feast for the eyes and soul.
Upon your arrival at the Hosea Kutako International Airport you will be met by our experienced local tour guide, who will take you to your hotel in Windhoek. After check- in at the accommodation and if time permits, you will be taken on a city tour which is rounded off by a visit to our township, Katutura.
Accommodation/ Breakfast at Safari Court Hotel. Incl. Airport Transfer/ City Tour
We depart from Windhoek and cross the Khomas Hochland (rising up to 2.000 m above sea level) and travel along the Gamsberg Pass into the oldest desert in the world: The Namib. Here the landscape changes from slate mountains into endless sandy areas, broken by deep gorges and granite mountains. After a short rest, we continue through the Namib Naukluft Park, where, with a bit of luck, we may see ostriches, springbuck, oryx and mountain zebras. Our destination is the Welwitschia plain. This extraordinary plant can only be found here in the northern Namib and in southern Angola. It is also referred to as a living fossil. In the early evening we arrive in Swakopmund.
Accommodation/ Breakfast at Swakopmund Plaza Hotel or similar. Incl. Welwitschia Plain
After breakfast we will head towards Walvis Bay, Namibia’s important port. We take a 3-hour long boat/ catamaran cruise where we can watch the sea birds and where, often, the boats are accompanied by seals and dolphins. Aboard we will be served oysters, champagne and snacks. During the cruise we learn much about the rich life of the cold Benguela Current of the Atlantic. In the afternoon we visit the colourful city of Swakopmund and have enough time available to explore it.
Accommodation/ Breakfast at Swakopmund Plaza Hotel or similar. Incl. Boat Cruise
Today we are heading land inwards, past the Spitzkoppe, the Namibian “Matterhorn”, until we reach the Erongo Mountains. After a few hours of relaxation, either in the pool or by taking a walk, we enjoy a true Namibian sundowner watching the sunset and the play of colours in the wild.
Dinner/ Accommodation/ Breakfast at the Omandumba Lodge or similar.
Early in the morning when the light is still gentle, we take a 3-hour drive in an open vehicle and explore the grounds of the lodge. The highlight of this drive will be seeing the countless prehistoric rock paintings, as well as the diverse bird world and vegetation. Thereafter we head towards the unique formations of the Ugab Terraces.
Dinner/ Accommodation/ Breakfast at the Damara Mopane Lodge or similar. Incl. Nature Drive/ Vingerklip Rock Formation
We continue our trip to the world-famous Etosha National Park. We spend our first hours game watching and getting our eyes used to spotting game in the distance or in the bush.
Dinner/ Accommodation/ Breakfast at the Taleni Etosha Village or similar.
At the Etosha National Park two full days are available to us for game viewing. This park is one of the oldest game reserves in the world. In 1907 this region was placed under nature conservation and still today covers an area of about 22.270 km², consisting for the most part of grass and bush savannah. Thus there are ideal conditions for game viewing, either at one of the many water holes, or out in the open plain. The actual Etosha Pan, after which the park has been named is approximately 6.000 km² in size. ‘Etosha’ stems from the Ovambo language and means ‘place of dry water’ or ‘great white place’.
Dinner/ Accommodation/ Breakfast at the Taleni Etosha Village or similar. Incl. Game Drive
This day, too, is dedicated to watching game in the Etosha National Park. Larger and smaller herds of springbuck, zebra, wildebeest or even elephants move around here. It pays off to listen attentively. The animals are communicating with each other constantly, whilst their hooves crunch on the ground. In the course of the afternoon we exit the park through the Von Lindequist Gate and drive to our accommodation in the vicinity of the park.
Dinner/ Accommodation/ Breakfast at the Mokuti Etosha Lodge or similar. Incl. Game Drive
After breakfast we travel to the Gabus Game Ranch via Tsumeb and Otavi. En route we visit Lake Otjikoto and the versatile mining museum in Tsumeb. In the afternoon we are taken on a game drive across the lodge premises where we can once more catch a glimpse of the one or other wild animal. Our trip ends with a sundowner.
