Day 1 & 2 - Okaukuejo
Okaukuejo Resort 
Meals- Breakfast 


We recommend leaving Windhoek early this morning as you have a 435km drive to complete before reaching the park. Your route takes you due north of Windhoek via the towns of Okahandja, Otjiwarongo, and finally Outjo (a popular lunch stop - before the final drive into the park). You will enter Etosha at the Andersson Gate from where it is only a short drive to Okaukuejo. The chances are that immediately on entering the national park you will start to see interesting wildlife - so covering even the shortest distance can be a rewarding and time-consuming business. Do remember that you have to be inside the Okaukuejo gates before sunset - otherwise, you face the prospect of a fine, or even having to sleep in your car with the animals as your companions.

Day 2 -Drive to Sossusvlei 

Dead Valley Lodge
Meals- Breakfast & dinner 


After breakfast, you’ll leave the Kalahari and drive to Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert in the southwest of the country. You’ll stay in Sossusvlei 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.

Day 3 - Explore the Dunes

Halali Camp
Meals- Breakfast 

It is really worth waking early and heading out on your game drive as soon as the gates open at sunrise. Animals are most active in the cool of the day (early morning & late afternoon) and in order to maximize your chances of good viewings, it is worth imitating their behavior. The roads in Etosha have unsealed gravel roads but are in reasonable condition - and the general tourist behavior is to drive between various waterholes searching for animals.
As the day gets hotter head for shade, and lunch, at one of the parks three camps, Okaukuejo, Namutoni or Halali. When things start to cool down again head out for another game drive. With two full days in the park, you should have sightings of most of the park's inhabitants (although be warned the cats are notoriously hard to find - and of course what you see is determined by luck and more importantly your ability to spot wildlife).

Day 4 & 5 - Etosha NP to Swakopmund

Desert Breeze Lodge
Meals- Breakfast 


Pack up and head out of the park via the Andersson Gate, this drive offers you the opportunity to see more game, but don't stop and watch for too long as you have a long 560km drive ahead of you today. We suggest driving via Otjiwarongo to the town of Omaruru, which in recent years has become something of an artists retreat, there are several places here to stop and enjoy lunch before continuing via Karibib and Usakos and then across the Namib Desert to Swakopmund. On arrival in Swakopmund check into your accommodation before heading out for a drink, dinner, and a night on the town.

Day 6 & 7 - Swakopmund to the Namib Desert 

Desert Camp
Meals- Breakfast 

Leave Swakopmund towards the harbor town of Walvis Bay, the lagoon here attracts a lot of marine & birdlife and is well worth a visit to view the pink flamingoes. You may decide to take a catamaran cruise on the lagoon (not included in package price). Today you have a drive of around 300km's which will take you around 4-5 hours. Your route will take you across the gravel plains of the Namib Desert and through the Kuiseb & Gaub passes.


Aim to arrive at your accommodation in the late afternoon, Desert Camp is a self-catering establishment and no meals are included in this package but if you do not want to have the hassle of carrying and preparing your own food meals can be enjoyed at the nearby Sossusvlei Lodge.


End of Safari:
Windhoek (City) (Day 8)
Meals - Breakfast

If you are looking to completely blow your experience out of this world, you could consider joining a balloon flight over Sossusvlei this morning. Otherwise after breakfast, pack up and head back to Windhoek for your onward journey home.

- Additional accommodation can be arranged at an extra cost.
