The voyage from Cape Town to Namibia is diverse, offering the best opportunities to discover Namibia’s vast, unique beauty. On this safari you will visit several safari destinations such as Namib desert, Cederberg Wilderness Area, Gariep River, Swakopmund, Damaraland, Etosha National Park to mention but a few. The Namib is a desert along the coast of southern Africa. The Khoekhoegowab term Namib means “vast place” and is of Khoekhoegowab origin. The Namib, in its broadest definition, extends over 2,000 kilometers along the Atlantic coasts of Angola, Namibia, and South Africa. It starts at the Carunjamba River in Angola and proceeds south through Namibia to the Olifants River in the Western Cape of South Africa. The Namib’s southern portion borders the nearby Kalahari Desert, but its northernmost section, which stretches 450 kilometers from the Angola-Namibia border, is known as the Moçâmedes Desert. The Namib progressively rises in elevation from the Atlantic coast eastward, extending up to 200 kilometers inland to the foot of the Great Escarpment.
Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with the spectacular Table Mountain as its focal point. Following a tour briefing, you will embark from Cape Town at 8:00 a.m. to explore Hout Bay harbor on your way to Cape Point Nature Reserve and the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach. You will have the opportunity to enjoy some of Cape Town’s gastronomic delights at a local restaurant in the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (at your own expense).
The Cederberg is a vast rock wilderness with enormous sandstone boulders that have been fashioned into strange and beautiful shapes by wind and rain. You will go to the Cederberg in the north and walk across its untamed terrain before spending the evening unwinding in chalets.
Eventually, you’ll enter the drier areas. You will stay at a lodge on the Gariep River once you arrive in Namibia. The river that forms Namibia’s southern border flows gently and silently, and tourism has little impact on the river valley. Sand makes up the riverbed, and the water is crystal pure. You will have free time to relax and go swimming, or you can rent canoes and paddle down the river.
One of Namibia’s most striking natural wonders is the Fish River Canyon, which is located along the lower reaches of the Fish River. The Fish River Canyon is the second-largest canyon in the world, reaching depths of up to 550 meters. You’ll travel to the canyon and arrive in time to witness a breathtaking sunset as the sun sets over the canyon’s rim in the late afternoon.
Endless orange dunes that have been sculpted into sharp ridges can be found throughout the dry Namib Desert. They form an entrance into the Namib Desert near Sossusvlei. You’ll take a stroll to Sossusvlei and investigate Sesriem Canyon. You may enjoy spectacular sunset views over the tallest dune fields from the comfort of your lodge outside the national park. A 4WD shuttle is an optional, at-your-own-cost alternative if you’d rather not make the 4 km hike to Sossusvlei.
Swakopmund is a well-known seaside town with a nostalgic vibe that is distinguished by a large number of colonial structures. The Namib’s stony plains are home to the Welwitschia Mirabilis and the Kokerboom, two stunning plant species, and they surround this seaside hamlet. Namibia’s adventure activity capital is Swakopmund. The day is yours to explore the town or attempt sea kayaking or dune boarding at your own expense.
Damaraland, in Namibia, serves as a prime example of this, with its harsh plains, petrified trees, and historic valleys that lead to rocky outcrops and the towering peaks of the Brandberg Massif Mountains. You will have access to the Cape Cross seal colony and the San rock art on this day.
This charming town, which is exquisitely placed in a valley, blends modern city architecture with several structures designed in the German colonial era. The friendly nature of its residents and the seamless fusion of African and European traditions are what give Windhoek its allure. You will travel to the urban center and dine out on your own dime.
Following the guesthouse breakfast, the excursion ends at 8:00 am. Upon request, your transportation to the airport will be provided.
