6-Day Namib Desert & Etosha Safari


The journey is designed for individuals who want to see the Namib Desert and Etosha National Park, two of Namibia’s top attractions, in the least amount of time feasible. To fully experience the bleak beauty of Namib, do this breath-taking journey that places you at a significant social distance. Visit Sossusvlei, a place with some of the highest dunes in the world and breathtaking views. For a genuine safari experience, travel to Etosha National Park in the north. Visitors have the chance to witness the Big Five as well as other animals in this distinctive location. Sossusvlei is a salt pan in Namibia that is located in the middle of the Namib-Naukluft Park in the central Namib dunes area, which is around 32,000 square kilometers in size. Between the Kuiseb Canyon in the north and the Koichab River in the south, close to the harbor town of Lüderitz, the Namib Desert dominates the whole coastline of Namibia. Some park sections, like the Sossusvlei, were affiliated in 1979. German colonists created the Namib-Naukluft Park in 1907. The park has grown over the years, and at around 50,000 square kilometers in area, it is now the largest national park in Africa.

Itinary in details

We will take you up between 7:00 and 8:00 am from your hotel or guesthouse and leave directly on the road south to the famed Sossusvlei via the lovely Spreetshoogte Pass. After that, we’ll stop at the lookout to take in the expansive vista of the Namib. Before moving on to our lodge, we will make a stop at Solitaire for gas and possibly an afternoon tea as well. In order to explore the area before sunset, when the colors sparkle and shift on the far mountains to the east, we will try to arrive in the early afternoon. You will be served the dinner at your lodge.

We’ll go early in order to see the desert in the gentle light of daybreak. We’ll proceed towards Sossusvlei after passing through Sesriem, with sand dunes rising on either side of the road. White Plains and crimson dunes that are among the highest in the world stand majestically against a deep blue sky in this famous sight. At the renowned Dune 45, where eons-old acacias silently line the impressive open-air galleries, we’ll make a halt. One of the tallest dune systems on Earth, known as the Big Daddy or Big Mama, can be scaled if you have adequate strength. We’ll head back to Sesriem for lunch after the morning tour. After lunch, we’ll go on a cool afternoon desert stroll where there’s a chance we’ll spot gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals, and ostriches. We’ll also go to the lovely Dead Vlei. The skeletal remains of hundreds of dead camel thorn trees are scattered around this white clay pan, which is located amid tall orange dunes and makes for stunning photography.

You can sleep in till ten in the morning before we head back to Windhoek via the picturesque routes of the Khomas Hoch land Mountain Range. You will be dropped off at your hotel for dinner and a night.

The journey to Etosha National Park, South will officially begin when you guide picks you up in the early morning. We’ll leave the city by taking the B1 road north. We’ll stop for a picnic lunch along the way. After arriving in the late afternoon, we will travel to Okaukuejo by way of the Anderson Gate on the south side of Etosha. Before a late-afternoon game drive, you will have opportunity to explore your surroundings and relax in the pool. It is highly advised to stop at the floodlit waterhole after dinner because there is a decent probability of seeing lions and rhinos coming to drink there. The illuminated waterholes at each of the main sites are what distinguish this park. There are also photo hides at some of the sites that are close to the waterholes. Etosha National Park, of course, is the ideal location for any nature or photography enthusiast. Numerous kinds of birds, reptiles, and mammals live there. The park is home to a lot of waterholes, which make it excellent g for ame viewing.

In order to get to Namutoni, our next rest camp, we will spend the majority of today walking through the game reserve in search of wildlife. In addition to stopping to see the Etosha Pan, also referred to as the “place of dry water,” we will visit a number of waterholes. Shimmering mirages can be found in this vast, flat valley, which encompasses around 5,000 square kilometers. It’s unusual to encounter such vast herds of game. Prior to continuing to Namutoni, we might pause in Halali to eat lunch. We can unwind in the waterhole or swimming pool at Namutoni before going on a late-afternoon wildlife drive. With close-up views of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks, and a variety of birds, game watching in this area is typically superb. Lions and elephants might also be present. Before dinner in the evening, we can have a glass of wine and a magnificent sunset from the tower of the former German-built fort in Namibia.

Prepare for the lengthy, picturesque trip back to Windhoek after a morning game drive and the chance to get more images of Etosha’s wildlife. The greatest wood carving market in Namibia is located in the little town of Okahandja, which we’ll arrive at after traveling through rural and urban areas. The stalls provide a wide variety of authentically Namibian souvenirs and are run by a neighborhood cooperative. By no later than 4:00 pm in the afternoon, we shall return to Windhoek. Your accommodation will be where you are dropped off. Please make arrangements with the guide so that you can leave as soon as possible if you’re returning to your home country.
