After a night in the capital city, your journey takes you south into the dramatic landscape of the Namib Desert. From your base at Hoodia Desert Lodge, pay a visit to the iconic Sossusvlei pan before relaxing with a cocktail under one of the most spectacular starscapes in the world. Cross the Namib Desert to Namibia’s western coastline and the sleepy town of Swakopmund; its colourful Germanic buildings are an architectural throw-back to colonial times.
Take an optional relaxing boat cruise to explore the diverse wildlife or get your adrenaline pumping with a quad-bike or sand-board through the dunes. From here hit the dusty road north into the culturally rich and mountainous Damaraland region. Visit the San rock etchings at the Twyfelfontein World Heritage Site before flying by light aircraft to the Hoanib River Valley. Take a game drive down the dry riverbed and enjoy a proliferation of game including giraffe and desert-dwelling elephant. Take a day to explore the seal colonies and shipwrecks of the Skeleton Coast before flying south by light aircraft to Grootberg Lodge to enjoy an infinite view down the Klip River Valley. Continue your journey into Etosha National Park, one of the largest game reserves in Africa. As you drive back towards the capital get up close and personal with AfriCat’s rehabilitated cheetah and leopard at Okonjima before returning to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
