Drive through the Waterberg area

After breakfast your guide will arrive to take you out on your safari. Your journey begins as you head off to Okonjima, situated in a remote wilderness area near Otjiwarongo in northern Namibia. You will be staying in style at the luxury Bush Suite for the night.

Explore this magnificent area as you spend the rest of the day at leisure. Pay a visit to the Africat Foundation, an education and research centre, where cheetah and leopard are rehabilitated to ensure their survival.

Days 3-4

Go game viewing in Etosha

After breakfast your guide will drive you to Onguma The Fort - a uniquely designed African- and Moroccan-inspired safari lodge situated in the Onguma Game Reserve, just outside Etosha National Park. From here you can enjoy day trips into this renowned park.

The camp is located 60 metres from a waterhole, so you can take a stroll to see the animals as they come and go. This area of Namibia is also famed for its birdlife, so keep an eye on the sky to spot some of these.

Day 5

Stay inside Etosha National Park

Today you’ll enjoy a full day of game viewing in the Etosha National Park. Depart from the bush camp in the morning and travel to Okaukuejo Rest Camp, situated within the parks' borders. This camp is the oldest camp in the park and is characterised by its thatched bungalows.

Spend the rest of the day searching for the animals you haven't yet seen and admiring the beautiful landscapes. In the evening, you can walk over to the floodlit waterhole just outside the camp to watch the animals as they come to drink.

Days 6-7

Drive to the heart of Damaraland

Depart from Etosha this morning and head to Damaraland, a beautiful and untouched wilderness that holds magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It's also the southernmost roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.

Pay a visit to the World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein and admire the age-old rock paintings and engravings that were originally done by the San people. You can also go on a hiking excursion that will take you to a small waterhole and view point.

Return to Mowani Mountain Camp and relax with a drink in the late afternoon as you admire the sun as it sets across this spectacular scenery.

Day 8

Explore Namibia's adventure capital

After breakfast you will take a relaxed drive to the coastal town of Swakopmund, wedged between the mighty Namib Desert and the Atlantic Ocean. Stay in the beautiful Hansa Hotel where you will enjoy a sophisticated atmosphere and excellent service.

Enjoy a range of exciting activities like sand boarding, quad biking and sky diving. Explore the coast on a dolphin cruise or take a trip into the Namib-Naukluft Park - a stunning desert wilderness. In the evening you can sit down to dinner at one of the hotel's two world-class restaurants.

Day 9

Fly to the Sossusvlei Region

After breakfast, drive to the Swakopmund Airstrip and board a flight to Sossusvlei. You will spend the night at the Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, set among beautiful dunes.

Enjoy a range of activities like early morning game drives to the nearby dunes and guided walks in the private reserve. You can even admire this magnificent desert region from above on an early morning balloon ride.

Days 10-12

Discover the Namib Desert

After breakfast, you will be collected by a Wolwedans representative and transferred, via a scenic drive, to the Wolwedans Dunes Lodge.

Here you can enjoy balloon rides over the haunting dune landscapes or venture out on a two-day hike into the Losberg Mountains. Experienced guides will take you on fascinating drives and walks, revealing the wonders of the desert.

Expect to be spoiled with picnics in the wild, sundowners on the dunes, and dinners by candlelight, all the while learning the fascinating truths about the desert and its diverse flora and fauna.
