After a night in the capital city, start your adventure by driving north to the Waterberg Plateau. Take a dip in a natural spring swimming pool in the spectacular high-lying valley or join a hike onto the plateau itself. Continue your journey north to Etosha National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa. In the dry season, the many waterholes act as magnets to huge congregations of game animals– and of course the predators that follow them! Circle west and visit the Petrified Forest and San rock etchings at the Twyfelfontien World Heritage Site, or join a guided trip to see the rare desert-adapted elephant before heading to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Get your adrenaline pumping amongst the dunes with a sky-dive, sand-board or quad-bike, or take a relaxing kayak or boat cruise to explore the diverse coastal wildlife.
Continue your journey driving east into the red dunes of the Namib Desert and pay a visit to the iconic Sossusvlei and Deadvlei pans. From here continue south via the Namib wild horses or the eerie ‘Ghost Town’ of Kolmanskop before arriving at the Fish River Canyon, a spectacular geological scar through the otherwise featureless landscape. Make a last stop in the wildlife rich red dunes of the Kalahari before returning to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
