After arriving in the capital city, drive west to the sleepy town of Okahandja. Relax over a delicious meal at your farmstead accommodation before heading north to Etosha National Park, 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! Experience the amazingly diverse desert flora and fauna including rhino, giraffe, elephant and lion.
Continue north into the rugged wilderness of Damaraland where local guides will lead you on foot through the bush, teaching you tracking skills and revealing the secrets of the elusive wildlife. Circle back south-west visiting the San rock etchings at the Twyfelfontien World Heritage Site while looking out for desert-adapted elephant and mountain zebra along the way. As you head back towards the capital get up close and personal with AfriCat’s rehabilitated cheetah and leopard at Okanjima before returning to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
