Day 1 - Windhoek to Etosha National Park
Meals- Lunch & Dinner
After the departure from Windhoek, you stop briefly at Otjiwarongo to collect some last-minute supplies before continuing on to Etosha with a light lunch pack whilst “on the move”. you enjoy an afternoon game drive through the park visiting waterholes looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino, and many different species of antelope arriving at your lodge just before sunset to settle into your rooms, with an en-suite bathroom and tea/coffee facilities. A visit to the flood-lit waterhole is highly recommended while dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire.
Day 2 -Etosha National Park
Meals- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
First things first as we spend most of the day game driving. A visit to a number of waterholes is top on the list and also making a stop at the Etosha Pan, the “place of dry water”. The Pan is an extensive flat depression of about 5,000 km2. This great, white expanse is a place of shimmering mirages, and being able to see large herds of game in this setting makes Etosha a unique experience in Africa. We may stop at Halali middle camp to have lunch before we continue our game drive to Namutoni. We have time to relax at the swimming pool in Namutoni or at the waterhole before a late afternoon game drive. The game viewing is usually excellent with close views of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks, and plenty of birds. If we are lucky we may also have some close encounters with elephants and lions. In the evening we may enjoy a glass of wine and experience a fabulous sunset from the tower of the old German fort before dinner around the campfire.
End of Safari:
Windhoek (City) (Day 3)
Meals - Breakfast
After a morning game drive, with the chance to get some more pictures of Etosha's wildlife in the soft morning light, we depart Etosha via the Von Lindequist Gate headed back to the city. We will travel on the main road (B1), making a short detour to Lake Otjikoto distinguished by its old- green waters discovered in 1851. Just before reaching Windhoek, we have time to stop in the small town of Okahandja with Namibia’s largest wood–carving market. We are likely to arrive back in the city in the early afternoon, you will be dropped off at your accommodation or airport.
