This self-drive tour of Namibia will take you through some of the country’s most well-known places, including Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, and Etosha National Park. It will also highlight some of the top natural, cultural, and historical landmarks in the country. Enjoy the broad road and venture off to do anything you like.
Upon landing in Windhoek, after picking up your rental car, you’ll head to Sossusvlei. It is worthwhile to stop in the village of Solitaire en route to Sossusvlei to refuel and get a bite. The following two evenings will be spent at Sossusvlei, where you will have opportunity to explore the famous towering sand dunes as well as other amazing geological structures like Sesriem Canyon. After a great breakfast, the day is yours to explore.
On the third day, depart for Swakopmund in the coastal Namib Desert. You pass through lovely canyons and impressive scenery on the route. The breathtaking Walvis Bay is passed through on this picturesque trip. The Pelican Point sand spit provides protection for Walvis Bay’s tidal lagoon, which is inhabited by a variety of birds including flamingos and pelicans. An ex-colonial town called Swakopmund is well-known for its German culture and architecture. A beer celebration called Oktoberfest is held, and many locals speak German. The fourth day will be spent exploring Swakopmund and its environs.
Etosha provides excellent animal watching possibilities, particularly around waterholes. The best way to explore Etosha is to stay at Okaukeujo, which is located within the park. You’ll have plenty of time over the course of two days to independently drive across Etosha in search of wildlife. This implies that you can take your time exploring a variety of waterholes where a lot of wildlife congregates, including Halali, Okondeka, and of course, Okaukuejo. Salt pans make up over a fourth of Etosha, including the park’s unquestionably most unique and dramatic feature, the Etosha Pan. There can occasionally be up to a million flamingos in the Etosha Pan, which is the only known large-scale nesting area for flamingos in Namibia.
After breakfast on day seven, you will depart for Windhoek Airport. After returning your rental car, you will check in for your journey home.
