Details

Day 1: From the airport to Windhoek

You arrive at the International Airport and take over your rental car at the rental car company. Your journey starts now and you drive the short distance to Windhoek. After checking in at your guest house you enjoy the rest of the day as you like to. Discover, for example, the city with its artisan market, the little street cafés and the nice buildings with their colonial style.

Day 2 & 3: Discover the Kalahari Desert

In the morning you drive to Kalahari which is called "the soul of the world" by the bushmen. Look forward to the deep and red sand dunes and endless grasslands, interspersed with acacias and bushes. Discover the flora and fauna of the surroundings and watch out for animals like gems- and springboks and ostriches that are living here.

Day 4: From Kalahari to Namib Desert

Today you drive through endless vastness and long mountain chains into the Namib Desert, the oldest desert of the world. From your lodge you can discover two of Namibia's most famous landmarks: Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon. Both are planned for the next day.

Day 5: Beautiful Sossusvlei

Before sunrise you drive to the gate of the Namib Naukluft Park. Because the best time to explore the surroundings of Sossusvlei is right now. Enjoy the play of colors and have a walk to the Dead Vlei and climb one of the dunes! You drive back to the park entrance from where you can make a detour to Sesriem Canyon. Hold your camera ready as the deep gorge offers uncountable possibilities for wonderful pictures. Afterwards you drive back to the lodge. Perhaps you want to swim a little bit in the pool or you just enjoy a cool drink and think about all the experiences you already made.

Day 6 & 7: Coastal town Swakopmund

Onwards to Swakopmund, a German influenced coastal town at the Atlantic Ocean. There's so much to do here: Sightseeing flights, a boat trip with dolphins, parasailing, sandboarding or even parachuting. Do whatever you're in the mood for!

Day 8: Onwards to Damaraland

You pass huge lichen fields and Namibia's highest mountain, the Brandberg mountain, and further on to Damaraland. Discover Twyfelfontein, a world cultural heritage with more than 2.500 rock carvings. You'll see another geological phenomenon when visiting the "Burned Mountain" and the "Organ Pipes"... a unique experience! In a traditional Damara village you'll learn how the inhabitants could survive in this region thousands of years ago. You arrive at your lodge and can , for example, take a walk on the Hausberg mountain. Or just enjoy the afternoon at the pool with a wonderful view around.

Day 9: From Damaraland to Etosha National Park

After breakfast your journey continues to Etosha National Park. You arrive at your lodge in the late morning. Now you'll experience your first game drive through this beautiful park, or you just relax and get to know the wellness offer of the lodge.

Day 10 & 11: Adventure Etosha National Park

You spend the next two days amidst this breathtaking nature and search for wild animals. You can book as many optional game drives in open off-road vehicles as you like to. Marvel at the wonderful landscape and discover the countless wild animals of the park! No game drive is the same, keep your eyes open, watch out for the herds passing by and just enjoy these unforgettable moments! Your lodge is located on a hill near the park entrance and offers a great view over the Mopane plains.

Day 12 & 13: Otjihavera Mountains

In the morning you travel back south and stay near Windhoek. Your guest farm is situated near a dry river bed amidst the majestic Otjihavera mountains. Enjoy your time at the pool or on the viewing platform. Or book a nature tour or a little hiking tour. Nature has so much to offer!
