Begin your journey south with your guide into the dramatic landscape of the Namib Desert. Continue into the spectacular mountains of the Namib Naukluft National Park, stopping to explore some of the highest free-standing sand dunes in the world. Head west to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Get your adrenaline pumping amongst the dunes with an optional sky-dive, sand-board or quad-bike, or take a relaxing kayak or boat cruise to explore the diverse coastal wildlife. Continue north 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 Twyfelfontein World Heritage Site, or join a guided trip to see the rare desert-adapted elephant before continuing north east 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. As you head 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.
