Namibia Sossusvlei, Damaraland & Etosha Self-Drive – “The Best of Namibia”

Namibia Sossusvlei, Damaraland & Etosha Self-Drive – “The Best of Namibia”

per person

Overview

On this 15-day self-drive journey, travel throughout Namibia’s wide-open landscapes and vast skies in pursuit of the country’s most breathtaking sites and exhilarating outdoor experiences. The agenda is packed with thrilling activities, making it suitable for young-at-heart couples, small groups, and families with older children. You will visit remarkable lodges that provide comfortable and modest lodging as well as wonderful safari adventures in your 4×4 rental car.

After landing at Hosea Kutako International Airport in Windhoek and spending the night there, your journey will begin. After a good night’s sleep, continue south into the Namib Desert, where wide grasslands and craggy mountains give way to the immense red dunes of Sossusvlei. Spend two days exploring this unique desert habitat before heading north to Swakopmund, a beach resort where the plentiful Atlantic Ocean contrasts with towering sand dunes and modest old buildings.

In Damaraland, look for highly adapted species such as the uncommon desert elephant, and wonder at Twyfelfontein’s Stone Age rock etchings. No African experience is complete without a traditional big game safari, and a visit to both the eastern and western areas of Etosha National Park, Namibia’s flagship wildlife reserve, will more than suffice. Your final stop before returning to Windhoek is Okonjima Nature Reserve, where you can learn more about the AfriCat Foundation’s work to safeguard Namibia’s leopards and cheetahs.

Days 5-6: Sand & sea at Swakopmund | 2 Nights

SWAKOPMUND, NAMIBIA Travel north-east to the seaside town of Swakopmund, a charming community sandwiched between the cool waves of the Atlantic Ocean and the scorching sands of the Namib Desert. The city goes back to late-nineteenth-century German colonial colonisation, and its original Bavarian-inspired architecture lends considerable appeal to the town's interesting natural surroundings. Arrive to the Swakopmund Guesthouse in the late afternoon or early evening, in time for a sunset stroll along the beach. The next day is free to explore and play: select from water activities, sand surfing, quad riding, daring off-road paths, dolphin and seal safaris, and, depending on the time of year, a genuine German-style Oktober beer fest!
