Spend an afternoon taking a tour of the capital city and its townships before setting off 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 north, taking a cultural journey through an Owambo traditional village before heading to the northern reaches of Namibia and the spectacular Ruacana Falls. Circle southwards through the inaccessible Kaokoveld region, home to the ochre painted Himba tribespeople.
Continue through the spectacular Grootsberg Pass into the mountainous and rugged Damaraland region, keeping an eye out for desert-adapted elephant and elusive black rhino as you go. Visit the San rock etchings at the Twyfelfontien World Heritage Site before heading 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, sandboard or quad-bike, or take a relaxing boat cruise to explore coastal wildlife. Take a final hike through the magnificent granite landscape of the Erongo mountains before heading back to Windhoek and your onward flight home.
