ItineraryExpand
Day 1 - Windhoek
Arrive at any time. Transfer to hotel.
Day 2 - Windhoek/Sesriem
Enjoy the dramatic Namibian landscapes as we drive to the desert area of Sesriem, gateway to Namib-Naukluft National Park. Settle in to our desert lodge, relax at the pool, or enjoy a cool drink watching the stunning sunset over the desertscape.
Day 3 - Sesriem
Embark on a scenic excursion into the national park to explore the Namib Desert. Visit Sossusvlei and Deadvlei clay pans covered in a crust of salt-rich sand surrounded by burnt orange and red towering dunes. It's considered one of the most stunning desert landscapes in Africa. After, visit Sesriem Canyon, a natural gorge carved out by the Tsauchab River.
Day 4 - Sesriem/Swakopmund
Continue through changing desert landscapes, keeping an eye out for ?free-roaming zebra, kudu, springbok, and oryx. ??Stop in the quirky town of Solitaire for a break before heading out into the countryside. Here we meet a local to this remote region who takes us on a drive and talks about the survival strategies of ancient bushmen who lived in the area. We also search out smaller animal life that manages to survive in these harsh conditions such as snakes, geckos, spiders, and insects to learn how they have adapted to this arid region. After, continue to Swakopmund on the Atlantic coast.
Day 5 - Swakopmund
Enjoy a free morning. Opt to go sandboarding, or just take a walk in town. This afternoon, explore the township of Mondesa with a local guide, learning about its people and history. Visit the local market for an introduction to traditional food including wild spinach, mopane worms, and dried kapenta fish. Also visit an art and craft shop, meet with some locals, then visit a family-run establishment for dinner and local entertainment.
Day 6 - Swakopmund/Palmwag
Continue on to Twyfelfontein where we visit the ancient petroglyphs which were named Namibia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site is thought to hold the largest concentrations of bushman engravings in Africa with over 2,500 figures ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 years old. Finish the day on the Palmwag Concession, in northwest Damaraland.
Day 7 - Palmwag/Etosha National Park
Visit the Petrified Forest national monument, a stunning site of fossilized tree trunks dating from approximately 280 million years ago, before continuing to our lodge located in the Etosha National Park area. Etosha is considered the greatest wildlife sanctuary in Namibia. This evening, spend time at the waterhole to view the abundant number of wildlife who come to drink.
Day 8 - Etosha National Park
Embark on two open vehicle safari drives today, one in the early morning, to see the sunrise, and another in afternoon. Both drives will be led by a local guide from the national park. There is abundant wildlife that congregate around the waterholes, so keep your cameras at the ready for elephants, lions, endangered black rhinos, and even leopards. Over lunch, you have time to relax at the lodge, take a swim, or sit back and watch the animals as they come to the waterhole.
Day 9 - Etosha National Park/Windhoek
After breakfast, visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund, a global field research and education facility founded by Dr. Laurie Marker whose research has been supported by National Geographic. Tour the facility to learn about the important research, conservation, and community outreach work they do as one of the world's leading organizations dedicated to saving the cheetah in the wild. Meet with a researcher for a lecture to learn about the various projects in the works, then enjoy a cheetah drive to view some of these amazing creatures up close. After, enjoy lunch on the veranda overlooking the magnificent Waterberg Plateau. Continue on to Windhk for our final evening.
Day 10 - Windhoek
