After a relaxing night in the capital city, start your self drive tour by heading north to Okanjima. Get up close and personal with rehabilitated cheetah and leopard before continuing 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! Continue towards the coast, entering the culturally rich and mountainous Damaraland region. 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. Head west to the coastal town of Swakopmund, its colourful Germanic buildings an architectural throw-back to colonial times.
Get your adrenaline pumping on the dunes with a sky-dive, sand-board or quad-bike, or take a relaxing boat cruise to explore the coastal wildlife. Continue your journey east into the Namib Desert. From your luxury lodge pay a visit to the iconic Sossusvlei and Deadvlei pans before relaxing nestled amongst the dunes of the Namib Rand Nature Reserve, under one of the most spectacular starscapes in the world before returning to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
