After a short stop, you continue on your journey towards the coast, making stops at the Tropic of Capricorn, Gaub Pass and Kuiseb Canyon, before crossing the desert plains and arriving at Walvis Bay.

Your next stop is Cape Cross, home to one of the largest breeding colonies of Cape Fur seals in the world. Here, your senses will be overloaded with a pungent smell and very audible calling of thousands of Cape Fur seals looking for their loved ones.

You continue your journey, first back to Henties Bay and then inland, across the gravel plains of the Namib. Enjoy the changing of landscape as you head into Damaraland, and region of Namibia best known for it's community conservancies where people and wildlife live together in some of the country's most impressive landscapes. As you travel through to your camp for the next 2 nights, you will have the opportunity to stop and meet some of the people that call this area home, the Himba, Herero, and Damara. These enterprising individuals have created small roadside markets, offering the perfect chance not only to buy curios but to meet and support the local tribes people.

Your goal this morning is to head off the beaten track, and enjoy a nature drive through the river beds, searching for desert elephants. Namibia (just one of 2 countries in the world) is incredibly lucky to be home to these free roaming elephants that have managed to adapt genetically to survive in these harsh desert landscapes.

  • Note that sightings cannot be guaranteed

After your morning drive you head back into 'civilisation' and visit the UNESCO World heritage site of Twyfelfontein, home to some of the world's oldest rock etchings.

Day 8: Etosha South

Your journey today takes us into the world renowned Etosha National Park. You enter the park via the western Galton gate, and from there you game drive the full afternoon all the way through to Okaukuejo, your base for the night. The park itself covers 22,270 kms², and gets its name from the salt pan that makes up approximately 23% of the park. Once a massive lake, the Etosha Pan is now mostly dry, with the exception of good rainfall years when the pan fills up enough to become a breeding ground for flamingos that migrate between Walvis Bay and Sua Pan in Botswana.

You enjoy a game drive from the park gate, stopping at some popular (animal) waterholes, before arriving late afternoon at your lodge. Tonight you can relax by the floodlit waterhole, an excellent chance to view those creatures that prefer to be active during the cool of the night.

From Okaukuejo, you will drive from waterhole to waterhole (especially in the winter months), as they support a rich diversity of animals. These waterholes are one of the most unique aspects of Etosha National Park, and a major attraction for wildlife photographers and animal behaviour experts as the different species of animals, both predator and prey alike, can often be captured (on camera) drinking at the same waterhole.

From here, you continue on through Okahandja, where time permitting, you make a short stop at the Woodcarvers Market, an informal market for local craftsmen and a good place to bargain for some last minute gifts for those you left at home.
