Along Namibia’s Atlantic coast is the Namib Desert, one of the oldest deserts in the world. Its huge stretch of “star dunes,” or towering sand dunes, produce a bizarre and picturesque scene. You’ll be in wonder as you go through this extraordinary area because of the dunes’ ever-changing colors, which range from vibrant reds to golden tones, especially at sunrise and dusk.
The lovely seaside community of Swakopmund combines German and African traditions. Visit the bustling markets, wander the palm-lined streets, and savor the fresh seafood. In the nearby dunes, a variety of adventure sports, including quad biking, sandboarding, and skydiving, await thrill-seekers.
Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by a representative of our company and transferred to Windhoek to complete all rental requirements. Once everything is ready, we’ll make arrangements for you to meet with our agent so they can give you your travel paperwork and package, which includes your map.
Travel south from Windhoek to the Namib Desert to explore the enormous sand dunes. Set off early enough to take in the constantly changing scenery as you travel from the city. Get there in time for a sundowner, and then eat your meal outside under the starry night sky. The journey takes approximately five to six hours, with pauses along the way.
Get up early and travel to the Namib Naukluft Park’s Sesriem entrance gate from your accommodation. There is no point in showing up sooner because this gate only opens at morning. It is a genuine pleasure to travel the 60 kilometers from Sesriem over the sand dunes to Sossusvlei as the sun rises. Many tourists decide to pause and climb Dune 45, the first significant dune you will come across, but we advise you to keep going in the direction of Sossusvlei. Sossusvlei is 4 km away, but you’re already in the middle of some sizable dune fields. Although Sossusvlei is accessible by a wonderful walk along a dry riverbed, there are also 4×4 shuttles available from the parking lot for the extremely unfit or hopelessly indolent. It is highly recommended to explore the nearby Deadvlei, which got its name since it is a sizable pan with sculptural dead trees.
The captivating trip today takes you through the magnificent and constantly morphing desert landscapes of the Namib Naukluft National Park, including the magnificent Gaub and Kuiseb gorges. There are numerous adventurous activities available in Swakopmund. These include skydiving, quad biking, and sand boarding. Activities are not included in this itinerary but can be prearranged when you book it or left up to you to organize once you arrive in Swakopmund. Good cuisine and beer are always easy to get in this town with German influences.
Swakopmund is home to a big selection of stores and attractions. On every corner, there are interesting things and delicious meals. Embrace the beach. There are many activities available; here is Namibia’s activity hub. The Walvis Bay Lagoon is a great place to observe flamingos, pelicans, and a variety of waders.
Today, as you continue your safari, the route leads you into the stunning and diverse region of Damaraland, which is to the north and east. You will pass by the Brand berg, which rises 2,573 meters above sea level and is Namibia’s tallest mountain. Spend some time watching the game and taking in the majesty of the surroundings as you go. Damaraland is known for its vibrant displays, beautiful mountains with tabletop summits, rock formations, and peculiar-appearing plants.
The couple hours-long beautiful trip to Etosha National Park passes through more of Damaraland’s exceptional beauty. The Okaukuejo Resort, home to one of the most well-known waterholes in the Etosha National Park, is roughly three hours away from the Anderson Gate, which is significantly closer to Damaraland. It is useful during the dry seasons when there is no natural water for the animals elsewhere in the area.
Getting up early and starting your game drive as soon as the gates open at daybreak is definitely worthwhile. Early morning and late afternoon are the coolest times of day, when animals are most active. It is worthwhile to emulate their behavior to increase your chances of receiving favorable viewings. The roads in Etosha are made of unsealed gravel but are in reasonable shape, and most tourists drive between several waterholes in search of wildlife. As the day grows hotter, stop for lunch in one of the park’s three camps, Okaukuejo, Namutoni, or Halali, where there will be shade. Go on another game drive when it starts to become cooler again.
The primary reason to visit Okonjima, in addition to the lovely surroundings, luxurious accommodations, and delectable food, is to see cats. Viewing leopards and cheetahs, going to a night hide, and generally learning about what the AfriCat Foundation is working to protect these amazing animals are the main activities here.
Leave Okonjima and go to Windhoek via Okahandja. You can pause at Okahandja to browse the Kavango woodcarvers market or pick up some last-minute gifts. Around noon, you will reach Windhoek. You’ll have some time to shop in the city center when you check in.
Following breakfast at the guesthouse, before going to the Hosea Kutako International Airport to check in for your subsequent or return flight, you still have time to go shopping.
