Fish River Lodge
Meals- Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

After breakfast at your lodge you’ll drive south to the spectacular Fish River Canyon, with a stop at Quiver Tree Forest en route.

Enjoy a night at the lodge ahead of an exciting camping and hiking adventure tomorrow.

On day 4, Today you’ll have a full day to explore the breathtaking Fish River Canyon on foot.

After a hearty breakfast, depart from the lodge with your experienced guide as you can expect to cover around 14km today, initially descending into the Canyon to some naturally forming rock pools.

This morning you’ll enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast at camp before hiking back to the lodge, arriving around lunch time.Then it is on to the next part of your journey as you drive initially north and then west towards the coast. The landscape changes drastically en route as you arrive at the start of vast sandy dunes.

You’ll stay in near to the town of Aus for two nights, giving you a chance to explore this interesting region. Eagle's Nest Chalets are made up of just nine individuals chalets, spaced out and built among the rocky landscape characteristic of this region. Keep a look out for the Namib Desert Horse, a small population of feral horses, whose origin is unknown and their presence just adds to the mystery and intrigue of this region. 

 

On day 6, You have a full day to explore this region and there is a lot to see. You might like to visit the coastal town of Luderitz and drive around the peninsula or discuss with us the option of adding a boat trip to see the African penguins which live on islands off the coast.

Another highlight of this region is Kolmanskop. Once a small, but extremely rich mining village, Kolmanskop was hastily abandoned and is now a popular tourist spot with visitors intrigued by the eerie buildings which are half filled with sand. As well as this around the Klein-Aus Vista Reserve, there are numerous walking trails and even mountain biking on offer


Day 7 & 8 - Namib Desert

Kulala Desert Lodge
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

After breakfast it is a longer drive today of around 6 hours to the Namib-Naukluft National Park in the southwest of the country and home to Namibia' famous dunes.

You’ll stay in the area for the next two nights and you’ll have time to explore the iconic towering sand dunes, as well as other incredible geographical formations of the region, such as Sesriem Canyon.

On day 8, We recommend that you wake up early to enter the park as soon as the gates open at sunrise, or if you prefer you can soar above this breathtaking landscape in a hot air balloon, which is available at an extra cost. Kulala Desert Lodge has it's own private gate into the park, so on guided trips, which can be booked directly with the lodge, you can get ahead of most of the other vehicles coming in from other lodges.

Other activities you can enjoy today include a nature drive to spot the desert-adapted wildlife or a dune walk. In the evening you can enjoy a gin and tonic on a sundowner tour, or after dark you can join a star gazing excursion with a knowledgeable guide.

Walvis Bay is a stunning spot just outside Swakopmund and we highly recommend stopping off on your way into town. Sheltered by the Pelican Point sand spit, Walvis Bay’s tidal lagoon is home to abundant bird life, including flamingos and pelicans.

Swakopmund itself is a former colonial town famous for its German architecture and culture - many residents speak German and there's even an Oktoberfest beer festival. It is an ideal place to spend a night between visiting the dunes of the Namib-Naukluft and exploring the attractions of northern Namibia.

Day 10, 11, 12 & 13 - Damaraland

Doro Nawas, Camp Kipwe & Desert Rhino Camp 
Meals- Breakfast & Lunch

On arrival at Doro Nawas you’ll settle into your accommodation and you can spend the afternoon relaxing at your lodge, or if you wish you can take a walk in the surrounding area, stopping at viewpoints to marvel at the beautiful Damaraland landscape.

On day 11, Today you’ll have a full day to explore Damaraland. You can join a nature drive where you might track down Namibia's desert-dwelling elephants, or you may wish to join the Twyfelfontein, Burnt Mountain and Organ Pipes excursion to see the rock engravings at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein.

On day 12, Delve deeper into this fascinating region of Damaraland as you head further north towards the outpost of Palmwag, where you will be picked up and driven into Desert Rhino Camp. The camp is so remote that you leave your car in a secure parking spot and your guide will drive you the further few hours into camp, normally taking the form of a nature drive. As the name suggests, this will be your base for tracking rare populations of desert-dwelling rhino, in collaboration with Save The Rhino Trust. Enjoy a walk or just a sundowner drink this afternoon ahead of a busy day tomorrow.

On day 13, The specialty of Desert Rhino Camp is tracking the black rhino populations in this little visited corner of Damaraland. This concession is home to the largest free-ranging black rhino population left on the planet. The lodge works with rangers from Save The Rhino Trust in protecting the animals in the region and today you will head out with your guide along with the rangers to track black rhino.

Your activities are included today and it can be a long, bumpy day in the car but the reward of seeing these incredible animals in this harsh environment is well worth it. You may also encounter lion and elephant and almost certainly zebra, oryx and ostrich.

Day 14, 15, 16 & 17 - The Whole of Etosha National Park

Anderson Camp, Dolomite Resort & Onguma Bush Camp
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

After breakfast you’ll get back in your vehicle and drive east towards Etosha National Park.

Etosha offers fantastic wildlife viewing opportunities, particularly around the waterholes. You can expect to see elephant, giraffe, lion, leopard, zebra, springbok and gemsbok and it’s also one of the best places in Southern Africa to see the endangered cheetah, black rhino and rare antelope species such as black-faced impala, Damara dik dik and roan antelope.

 

 

On day 15, Today you’ll have a full day to explore Etosha and the private Ongava Game Reserve. Despite being one of Africa's largest national parks, Etosha is easy to drive around yourself as all roads lead back to the main road. This means you can take your time visiting the many different waterholes where large concentrations of wildlife tend to congregate, particularly in the dry season between July and October.

Almost a quarter of Etosha consists of salt pans, including the Etosha Pan which is undoubtedly the park’s most distinctive and dramatic feature. The Etosha Pan is the only known mass breeding ground for flamingos in Namibia and at times there can be up to a million flamingos here. Back at Anderssons at Ongava, you might also like to book onto a game drive with the lodge to explore the private Ongava Reserve, enjoy the water level hide overlooking the waterhole and investigate the Ongava Research Centre.

On day 16, Take your time as we drive through the park and treat the journey as a self-guided game drive, stopping for wildlife and at the waterholes on the way. Your destination is Onguma Bush Camp, which is on the private Onguma Nature Reserve adjacent to the eastern boundary of Etosha National Park, where you will stay for two nights.

On day 17, You have a final full day to explore the eastern reaches of Etosha National Park. You have the choice of booking onto guided activities with the lodge or exploring Etosha National Park independently by driving in through the Von Lindequist gate into Namutoni Rest Camp. From Onguma Bush Camp, both game drives into the national park and on the private reserve are available as well as guided bush walks on the reserve. These can be fascinating and a nice chance to stretch your legs.

 

Day 18 - Central Highlights

Ai Aiba Lodge
Meals- Breakfast & Dinner 

Your final stop before you head home tomorrow is Ai Aiba Lodge, perched among the impressive Erongo mountains. Take the chance for a final early morning game drive into Etosha, should you wish, before driving the three to four hours south to the Central Highlands of Namibia.

Ai Aiba has wonderful local guides and guided nature walks are included in the price of your stay so you might like to take advantage this afternoon and discover the flora and fauna and rock art of the area. Or, perhaps, just relax and enjoy the surrounds and views of the lodge.
