After a night in the capital city, start your romantic 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! Head south-west into the rugged mountainous landscape of Damaraland, watching out for mountain zebra and elusive black rhino along the way.

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 west 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 east into the red dunes of the Namib Desert and pay a visit to the iconic Sossusvlei and Deadvlei pans. Pause for a final sundowner surrounded by the majestic scenery of the Gamsberg Pass before heading back to Windhoek and your onward flight home.

Species present in the Park include lion, leopard, cheetah, elephant, rhino, giraffe & zebra in addition to many antelope and bird species. Dinner & breakfast included.

Destination: Windhoek
Accommodation: Onguma Bush Camp

Day 6: Iconic landscapes and wildlife

Etosha National Park

Spend today making your way slowly across the Park to the western most rest camp of Okaukuejo.

You may like to stop at the central, Halali camp for lunch and a rest during the heat of midday before continuing later this afternoon.

Namibia Wildlife Resorts is now offering guided day & night drives from the three rest camps. These drives, and especially the night excursions, provide visitors with an opportunity to experience an entirely different side of Etosha’s wildlife treasures.
Animals that come appear to be oblivious of the camp – unaware of the bright lights or the people sitting on benches just behind the low stone wall.

The light doesn’t penetrate into the surrounding bush. It creates something of a stage – with the water at its centre – focusing the attention on the animals that come to drink. During the dry season, you’re bound to see something of interest by just sitting here for a few hours in the evening – so bring a couple of drinks, binoculars, and some warm clothes to settle down and wait.

Among the regulars are elephants and jackals, while lion and black rhino often visit in the dry season. Breakfast included.

Accommodation: Okaukuejo Resort

Day 7-8: Culture and history


You will drive south today, out of the Park and towards Damaraland. You may like to take a look at the Petrified Forest on your way.

Aabadi Mountain Camp has 5 safari tents, and a campsite with a maximum of 12 people on the campsite. There is a small restaurant, a sundowner terrace with a spectacular view and a small (souvenir) shop.

The safari tents are built against the mountains and overlook the riverbed or the camp. Each tent has its own parking place and lies at quite a distance from the neighbouring tents. The restaurant is within walking distance. Breakfast is included, but you are also more than welcome for lunch and dinner, or just a drink!

The campsite is spacious and lies at the riverbed. There are enough trees, so there is always shadow and privacy. There is a bush shower with only ‘cold’ water (heated by the sun) and flush toilet.

The restaurant is within walking distance; here you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a drink. Each campsite has its own fire place/BBQ, so it is also possible to prepare your own meal. Camping only.

Accommodation: Aabadi Mountain Camp

Day 9-10: Coastal wildlife and scenery


Swakopmund itself is a fascinating and intriguing resort town, complete with German half wooden architecture, monuments, historic buildings, well maintained gardens and palm lined avenues, coffee bars and great seafood restaurants.

In addition, there are many adventure activities such as sand boarding, tandem parachuting, fishing & quad biking which can be arranged prior to arrival. We can also recommend some excellent day trips including the marine sanctuary of Sandwich Harbour, a unique environment comprising towering dunes, a freshwater lagoon and the wild Atlantic Ocean.

Alternatively, a half day boat cruise from Walvis Bay may offer the opportunity to see dolphins, fur seals and many species of marine birds. Please ask us for advice on restaurants, the more popular ones should be booked in advance and we are happy to do this for you.

A warm family welcome, crackling log fires, tranquil comfort and friendly, efficient service are what you can expect from your stay at Sandfields Guesthouse.
