Expenses of a personal nature
Over two-thirds of Namibian roads are gravel. We recommend renting a 4×4. Because Windhoek – where most rental car companies are situated – is 45 km to the west of Hosea Kutako International Airport, you will need to arrange a transfer from the airport to Windhoek with your rental car company. Alternatively, please speak to us and we will arrange a rental car and transfer for you. Rates on request.
Meet-and-Greet at Hosea Kutako International Airport – Windhoek Outskirts ( 40 km)
On arrival at the Hosea Kutako International Airport situated just 40 kms outside Windhoek, you are met by your English-speaking Transfer Service before you proceed on the short journey to the Rental Vehicle Depot.
At the Depot you will receive a comprehensive vehicle handover with safety and operating instructions.
Thereafter you set off on the first leg of your Namibian Safari, heading towards the mountain encircled City of Windhoek and turning off to your Lodge for the first night’s stay just outside the city limits. You are almost certain to see a variety of bird and wildlife on this short jurney already!
Arrive at the lodge, check in and relax after your long flight. Your comfortable and cool rooms, the vast deck, pool area and bar plus the spacious indoor lounge all offer space to rejuvenate and a truly incredible view. On three sides there are mountains and valleys, while the distant mountains in the west flank the city limits. At night, the city lights twinkling in the distance will compete with the bright night sky abve Windhoek – even above the largest city in the country, the stars are clearly visible and a truly awesome sight to behold.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, River Crossing Lodge
Windhoek – Omaruru – Waterberg Region ( 350 km)
Following your first night in Namibia, wake up to enjoy a delicious, leisurely breakfast in the cool morning. Thereafter you bid your friendly hosts farewell and set off on your journey.
Travel through the historically significant town of Okahandja, and then on until you reach Wilhelmstal and the turn-off towards the north-west. 67 km along a gravel road you will reach Omaruru, where a superb treat awaits you at the Erongo Mountain Winery. An informative Wine Tour and Tasting is complimented by a light lunch at „The Jewel“ famed Gourmet Restaurant.
Travel on thereafter, sated by your delicious and interesting experience, until shortly outside Otjiwarongo you turn off towards the Waterberg Region. Not too far along this scenic route (28 km) you will reach the Lodge, located on a hill overlooking the wide valley and the red cliffs of the Waterberg Plateau. Check in and relax whilst you observe the panoramic view and enjoy the sounds of the African bush all around you.
In the late afternoon and accompanied by a Guide, you are driven to a secluded spot with a wonderful view, where you will enjoy an exclusive sundowner experience – what better way to celebrate Namibia than this! Finally you return to the lodge for dinner and another night under starry Namibian skies.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Waterberg Valley Lodge
Waterberg Region – Etosha National Park Region West( 240 km)
Sleep on peacefully this morning, until the birdsong awakens you and the sunshine lures you outdoors. Breakfast can be enjoyed at leisure, as the journey today is not far – travelling via Otjiwarongo and Outjo, you will reach your next destination around midday, the renowned Etosha National Park Region.
Check-in at your beautiful, comfortable Lodge built around lucious green gardens and offering an extraordinary contrast to the bush savannah of this area. You can remain and relax at the Lodge, or undertake an optional excursion (Park Entrance on this day is optional and fees are not included,) in the form of a short journey into the Etosha National Park for the afternoon: take a while to observe the game from your Vehicle, or from the comfortable shady benches overlooking the Okaukuejo Camp waterhole. Leave the Park before sunset and spend the early evening at leisure, enjoying a swim in the cool sparkling pool or drinking sundowners as you watch the sun sink in the west.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Toshari Lodge
Etosha National Park Region West (km optional)
After breakfast you board your vehicle once more and journey into the Etosha National Park, travelling as far you wish through the vast Park. Marvel at the vastly differing landscape and vegetative areas you will travel through, with the variety of fascinating wildlife that inhabits each area as observed from your vehicle.
The Etosha National Park, consisting of 22 270 sq km of saline desert, savannah and woodlands, is one of the largest parks in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5000 sq km. For the greater part of the year, the pan is a bleak expanse of white cracked mud which shimmers with mirages on most days. Seeing vast herds of game with this eerie „great white place of dry water“ as a backdrop makes the Etosha experience unique. Approximately 114 mammal species are found in the park, including several rare and endangered animals such as black rhino and black-faced impala. Many bird species occur in the park too, of which approximately one third are migratory, including the European bee-eater and several species of waders.
Lunch can be enjoyed en-route in the form of a hearty Lunch Pack picnic ordered from the Lodge before departure, or at one of the Camps restaurants. Follow up with a cooling swim in the pool before you exit the Park and return to your comfortable and welcoming Lodge.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Toshari Lodge
Day 5 - 8
Days 5, 6, 7 & 8: Guided Wild Camping Safari „Off the Beaten Track“ (Total for 4 days 700 km)
o Day 5: Drive to Outjo where you will meet your Guide. He will install a 2-Way Radio in your vehicle before you set off, following your Guide in his own vehicle equipped with everything you will need for the next four days. In the early afternoon you reach the beautifully maintained Ongongo Hot Springs Camp Site. Here, each secluded site offers hot showers and a private ablution block in a wonderful setting next to Hot Springs, a picturesque waterfall and natural rock swimming pool.
o Day 6: Break up camp, load the Guide vehicle and your luggage, then depart from Ongongo and
travel towards Twyfelfontein. Journey through wild, ever-changing landscapes which offer unequalled views stretching to the horizon in every direction. Set up your wild camp in this region and enjoy nature, solitude and surprising comfort in a truly unique and exceptional setting.
o Day 7: Breakfast precedes your departure, along a route where you search for the elusive and
renowned Desert Elephants and Lions. In the afternoon you once again set up a wild camp in the Gai-As area of Namibia’s Desolation Valley.
o Day 8: Depart from your wild camp site and travel on to the coastal Dorob National Park. Stop on a wild and windswept beach to see the wreck of the Zelia, where history hangs from the broken beams and the desolate, rusted hull. Finally, you continue your journey until you reach Swakopmund where you bid farewell to your Guide, he builds out the radios and returns to his home in Walvis Bay. Check in to your luxurious hotel on the beachfront and relax in cool comfort, following a dusty day on sun-baked sandy roads and the windy beach.
Dinner can be enjoyed at any of the in-house Restaurants.
3 Nights Full Board excluding Drinks
Bed and Breakfast, Strand Hotel Swakopmund
Swakopmund (km optional)
Today is set aside for leisure, relaxation and rejuvenation. Spend time getting to know this quaint and lovely town on foot, or enjoy coffee breaks or a refreshing drink and delicious meal (not included) in one of Swakopmund’s fine Restaurants as you wander through town. Your Hotel has a Spa which offers a wonderful selection of fine treatments, or a beach day will beckon if the weather is fine.
In Swakopmund there are many activities to choose from, such as a Catamaran cruise in the Walvis Bay Lagoon with oysters and sparkling wine served underway, the famous ‘Living Desert tour’, or a Quad Bike excursion into the dunes. Alternately, visit the Crystal Gallery to see the largest crystals in the world, or join a guided Fatbike Tour through town or into the dunes.
Swakopmund is much loved by Namibians as a welcome respite from the inland heat. It is also popular amongst visitors for its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere. Founded in 1892 during the period of German colonial rule, it served as the territory’s main harbour for many years. The distinct German colonial character has been well preserved and today many of the old buildings serve a useful purpose.
The Woermann House (1905) now houses an art gallery and the Woermann Tower was used in earlier times to watch ships entering the harbour. Other old interesting buildings include „Die Alte Kaserne“, the „Hohenzollern Haus” and the Railway Station Building.
Dinner can once again be enjoyed at any one of Swakopmund’s renowned and very popular Restaurants (not included.)
Bed and Breakfast, Strand Hotel Swakopmund
Swakopmund – Walvis Bay (approximately 120 km)
Today after breakfast you drive along the coastal road that is flanked on one side by the dunes of the Namib Desert, and on the other by the rolling waves of the cold Benguela current which flows along the Namibia coastline, to Walvis Bay.
At the Yacht Club your vehicle is safely parked and you board the vehicle which will drive you out to the lonely, windswept Pelican Point, home to large colonies of Cape Fur Seals. Stop along the way to take pictures of countless Flamingos, Pelicans, large flocks of Cormorants and a great variety of other birds and wildlife. After approximately one hour you reach Pelican Point where you will be greeted by thousands of seals. Within a few minutes, you’ll have received your waterproof trousers and jackets to wear over your own clothing if you wish, plus Life Jackets. Climb into your very stable double (2 person) kayaks and you are ready to paddle. The seals are very friendly and playful and not scared of the Kayaks, even when you paddle right next to them. They are inquisitive and often come within touching distance of your oars. You do not need to be fit or experienced to enjoy a morning of kayaking, and you will stay on the protected side of the peninsula where the sea is very calm.
Spend around 1.5 hours on the water, depending on general weather conditions. The guide will use a waterproof camera for some photos which will be emailed to you within a few days, so you don’t have to get your own camera wet. Thereafter, recharge on the beach with fresh rolls and hot coffee and tea, before heading back to Walvis Bay between 12h00 and 13h00 pm. Once at your vehicle, you can return to Swakopmund, or enjoy lunch in Walvis Bay before driving back to Swakopmund.
In the afternoon, drive in your own vehicle to a location midway between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, where you will undertake a Dune Buggy Driving excursion. (Those not wishing to join can either accompany the others and relax in the garden with a cool drink of coffee from the Kiosk, alternately they can remain in Swakopmund for some TLC in the Hotel Spa or some shopping along safe streets lined with interesting shops and numerous café’s and coffee shops.) With an experienced DriverGuide accompanying you on a Quad Bike, enjoy a 2 hour activity driving on the rolling dunes that flank the coastline between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund.
The final activity is planned for this evening: You will be collected at the Hotel by your Guide who will drive with you in his vehicle to a location high up on the dune face, during the early evening. There you will enjoy Sparkling Wine, Namibia Beers, Softdrinks and Wines while you watch the sun set on the horizon over the ocean. When the final flash of the sun sinks into the sea and while the sky is still light and beautiful, your Guide will return you to the Hotel once more.
Bed and Breakfast, Strand Hotel Swakopmund
Swakopmund – Namib Desert (350 km)
Depart from Swakopmund via Walvis Bay and turn inland, away from the coast and heading into the vast Namib Desert. You will drive through the Namib Naukluft Park via Solitaire, the perfect stop-over to break the journey between the Sesreim and Sossusvlei area and Swakopmund.
Solitaire refers to a single solitaire diamond, the other being the solitude or loneliness of the area and the two meanings combined create the image of a distinctive, precious and solitary place. This small settlement features a gas station, post office, shop and a restaurant which is widely known for its delicious apple pie.
Continue the last leg of todays journey, finally arriving at the entrance gate to the magnificent Desert Hills Lodge. From the long, straight gravel road hewn into the rocky plain, you will see the sun reflecting on the large, panoramic windows of the lodge and slowly, the softly rounded thatched chalets will emerge from the landscape. You are welcomed and shown to your spacious, uniquely crafted chalets and it will be a difficult decision, whether to relax on your private, shaded balcony or on the shaded or sun-baked decks of the sparkling pool.
While the sun sets, enjoy a drink from the bar on the upstairs deck and balcony, or take an easy 5 minute walk up the pathway to the View Point above the lodge for sundowners (optional, cost not included.)
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Desert Hills Lodge
Namib Desert , Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon (200 km in total)
This morning you rise very early for coffee/tea before embarking on a pre-dawn journey towards the sand sea that is Sossusvlei. Entering the Park as it opens at dawn, you will see and have the opportunity to climb some of the highest sand dunes in the world. Rest in the shade of the trees that magically survive on the edge of the dry Vlei and enjoy a delicious picnic breakfast packed by the lodge, before you tackle the 1.1 km walk to see the famous and eerily beautiful Dead Vlei. Finally as you exit the dune landscape you visit Sesriem Canyon. Here you can quite easily climb down into the depths of the canyon and wander along the winding water and wind eroded channels. Perhaps you will even still find water, in some of the deeper pools.
Once back at the lodge, enjoy a siesta or gaze at the panoramic view of the plains and far-off mountains, while you sink into the cooling depths of the pool. Finally, enjoy a cold drink and watch the burning sun sinking in the west before dinner.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Desert Hills Lodge
Namib Desert (km optional)
This day is yours to spend at your leisure, in appreciation of the beauty and splendour of your surroundings and this wonderful lodge. Desert Hills lies on a vast swathe of arid earth including a stretch of the Tsauchab River, plus the ever-shifting, land-altering Hebron Vault. This was the stage for the ancient SAN people who danced about their adventures together within the glow of their evening fired, surrounded by their yellowed grass huts. These resilient hunter-gatherers etched out a living on the plains and mountains where Desert Hills Lodge rests today and the lodge is inspired by the huts of these fascinating, gentle people.
The afternoon lends itself to a Nature Drive on a nearby property, to observe the Southern White Rhino Project underway in this area. Observing the late afternoon Rhino feed and watching them roll in the mud pool created in front of the lodge for their pleasure. The visit culminates in a drive on the property to see the ‚family‘ Zebras and their ‚adopted‘ orphan calf, plus many other interesting animals including Jackal, Bat-Eared Foxes and numerous antelope and bird species (Optional excursion, not included in cost.)
Finally, return to Desert Hills for your last night in this wonderful location.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, Desert Hills Lodge
Namib Desert – Windhoek (315 km)
Enjoy breakfast with this wonderful view one last time, before departing. Driving along the gravel roads, you will observe the landscape morphing fluidly from grassy plains to spectacular valley views. And once you reach the peak of the Zaris Pass (1,672m above Sea Level,) you find yourself in spectacular scenery amidst rocky valleys flanked by flat-topped mountains.
Upon reaching Maltahöhe you reconnect with asphalt roads, before continuing on via Mariental and Rehoboth until you finally reach Windhoek once more.
You are welcomed back to River Crossing as old friends, and the sunset-bathed deck beckons for a last sundowner in the fresh, clean air and balmy evening light. Tonight after dinner, reminisce over the memories you have made on your journey through Namibia – we hope, that they will last you for a lifetime.
Dinner, Bed and Breakfast, River Crossing Lodge
Windhoek – Hosea Kutako International Airport, Windhoek (575 km)
Enjoy breakfast and the first hours of the early morning followed by any last souvenir shopping in this vibrant city, time permitting. Finally you drive out to return your rental vehicle at the Depot, then transfer to the Hosea Kutako International Airport outside Windhoek. Once there, check in for your onward-bound flight.
We hope that this will be just one of many visits to our vastly contrasting, exceptionally fascinating and beautiful land!
