Tour Exclusions

Day 1 - Windhoek to Okonjima Nature Reserve
Okonjima Nature Reserve 
Meals- Lunch & Dinner 

 

We depart Windhoek in the morning. The next stop is your overnight destination, the world-renowned Okonjima Nature Reserve. Okonjima is an impressive 20,000ha nature reserve that is home to an incredible array of wildlife species.

The aim is to arrive at camp around midday, giving you ample time to set up camp and enjoy lunch before you join the afternoon activity where you have the chance to see some of the cheetahs currently part of the AfriCat rehabilitation programme. 


Day 2 -Okonjima to Etosha National Park

Okaukuejo Resort
Meals- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

 

Depart from camp after breakfast and stop briefly at Otjiwarongo, a small town north of Okonjima to gather some fresh supplies, before continuing on to Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s premier wildlife reserves. Upon entering the gate, start your search for antelope, such as springbok and impala, and with any luck some megaherbivores such as elephant, rhino, or giraffe, on the short game drive to Okaukuejo.

Set up camp and enjoy a delicious lunch before heading out on an afternoon game drive. Etosha is unlike any other, and the game drives take you from waterhole to waterhole in search of predators as well as plains game, birds, and if you are lucky, even reptiles. Return to camp just before sunset, and whilst dinner is cooking, you have the chance to visit the excellent floodlit waterhole where rhino, elephant, giraffe, lion, and hyena are frequent visitors. Dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire.

Day 3 -Full day Game Drive in Etosha National Park

Okaukuejo Resort
Meals- Breakfast & Lunch

 

A pre-dawn start today with a quick coffee and rusk before embarking on our full day game drive at sunrise to have any chance of catching a glimpse of predators that are returning home after a night of hunting. You make your way across the park, visiting various waterholes and enjoying a late breakfast at one of the picnic spots within the park. Then continue your journey east in search of the many species that call Etosha home and arrive at Halali where you can take a dip in the pool, visit the waterhole and enjoy lunch. After lunch, visit the Etosha Pan from where the park gets its name. Here you can get out of the vehicle and experience this 4500 sq km ‘saline desert’, a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. Continue your game drive to look for the Big 4 on our way back to Okaukuejo, arriving at camp by sunset. Enjoy your last night camping in Etosha, and a visit to the waterhole before and after dinner is highly recommended.

Day 4 - Okaukuejo to Damaraland

Damaraland 
Meals- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

 

Another early start where you can take in a spectacular sunrise whilst having breakfast and then a short game drive back to the park gate. The route today takes you west into the area known as the Kunene Region. Your first stop is a visit to the Otjikandero Himba Village. The Himba people are one of the last tribes in Namibia who still embrace their ancient culture and customs. You participate in a guided tour around the village where you have the chance to not only gain an in-depth insight into the Himba way of life but to get to know the Himba people to share a little of your own culture with them.

Continue west and stop briefly in the small town of Kamanjab before continuing on to the Hoada Community Campsite, situated between large granite boulders and Mopane trees, creating the illusion of a serene home in the wilderness. Here you set up camp before enjoying a leisurely afternoon and watching the sunset from the Hoada deck. Dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire.

Day 5 - Damaraland to Cape Cross

Cape Cross
Meals- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

 

Today your adventure takes you through the infamous Skeleton Coast National Park all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. The coastline itself is a very hostile but fascinating area known for the Welwitschia mirabilis, the Northern Namibia sand sea, the derelict oil rig near Toscanini, the Huab lagoon, and the diminishing remains of the Winston Shipwreck. On exiting the national park we stop for Instagram-worthy photos of the iconic skull and crossbones gate.

Arrive at Cape Cross late afternoon where you set up camp for the night and have the opportunity for a sunset walk on the beach. Dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire.

Day 6 - Cape Cross to Swakopmund

Swakopmund
Meals- Breakfast & Lunch

 

Today is a chance for a rare lie-in and after a hearty cooked breakfast, the group can take a short walk to the Cape Cross Reserve. The reserve is home to one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of Cape Fur seals and during breeding season (November-December) up to 200 000+ seals can be spotted basking on the beach, certainly, sight and smell to behold. After your visit to the seal colony, continue traveling along the coast stopping to view the Zeila Shipwreck, one of the latest victims of the Skeleton Coast from as recent as 2007. Arrive in Swakopmund early afternoon and have plenty of time to explore this quaint little town on foot, or join one of the optional activities on offer from skydiving, scenic flights, quad biking, and more. Dinner tonight is at your own expense in one of Swakopmund’s excellent restaurants and your guide will be happy to make recommendations or bookings depending on what you feel like.


End of Safari:
Windhoek (City) (Day 7)

Leisurely breakfast and for those interested in birds, the driver will be happy to take you to Walvis Bay to see the flamingos in the Walvis Bay lagoon which is a protected Ramsar Site for birds, and a visit to Dune 7, the highest dune in the area, to experience the “sand sea” along the coastal strip. We are likely to arrive back in the city in the early afternoon, you will be dropped off at your accommodation or airport.
