Program

Day 1: Sossusvlei

After your arrival at Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) and picking up your vehicle and travel pack, you will depart for Sossusvlei. Drive through the Khomas Hochland and down the escarpment via one of the scenic mountain passes into the Namib Desert. This journey will take about four hours depending on the number of stops for photographs.

After lunch and settling in at the lodge, depart for a late afternoon scenic nature drive. Dinner and accommodation will be at one of the best lodges in the area perfectly situated to explore the surrounding desert and its attractions.

Day 2: Swakopmund

After an early breakfast and coffee, depart for a morning excursion to Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei. You will make a stop at the scenic Dune 45 along the way and spend a couple of hours at both Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei. Some of the dunes in the area are a few hundred meters high but the view from the top for those that dare is one you will never forget.

After lunch, you will depart for Swakopmund via the Namib Naukluft National Park. You will spend the night at a hotel and have dinner at one of the top restaurants in Swakopmund

Day 3: Swakopmund

Today, you can explore this charming town or perhaps visit the nearby Walvis Bay and its famous lagoon. Nature Travel Namibia can also arrange a seal and dolphin cruise in the morning or perhaps scenic flight over the coast or dunes

Day 4: Damaraland

Today, continue the safari northwards along the Skeleton Coast. After visiting a shipwreck and the massive Cape Fur Seal colony at Cape Cross Seal Reserve, you will turn inland towards Damaraland.

Damaraland boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It is also the southernmost roaming ground for the rare Black Rhino and the ‘desert adapted Elephant’, which we will keep searching for all along.

You will be at your lodge in time for a sun-downer drink while enjoying the view over this beautiful landscape.

Day 5: Etosha National Park

After breakfast, you will visit the Twyfelfontein rock engravings (Namibia’s only world heritage site), burnt mountain and organ pipes rock formation, and the Petrified Forest en route to Etosha National Park where you will spend the next three nights.
