After a night in the capital city, start your adventure to the top destination in Namibia, Etosha National Park, and also one of the largest game reserves in Africa. Encapsulating the very essence of Namibia, the wide open pans of Etosha stretch to the horizon. 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 north, taking a cultural journey through an Owambo traditional village before heading to the northern reaches of Namibia and the spectacular waterfalls of the Kunene River. Circle southwards through the inaccessible Kaokoveld region, home to the ochre painted Himba tribespeople before entering the rugged 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 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. Pause for a final hike through the magnificent granite landscape of the Erongo mountains before heading back to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
