Day 1 – Halali and Etosha National Park

We will be collected from our guesthouse/hotels as 07:15 and brought to the Backpackers Lodge for the pre-departure talk and to meet the rest of the group. We stop briefly at Otjiwarongo to gather some last minute supplies before continuing on to Etosha with a light lunch pack whilst “on the move”. We enjoy an afternoon game drive through the park visiting waterholes looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino and many different species of antelope arriving at our lodge just before sunset to settle into our rooms, with en-suite bathroom and tea/coffee facilities. A visit to the flood lit waterhole is highly recommended while dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire.

Meals: Lunch and Dinner

Day 2 – Taleni and Etosha Village

We start our first game drive at sunrise to catch the predators while they are still active, visiting many waterholes.  Our second game drive midmorning takes us to the impressive Etosha Pan “great white place” where we can get out of the vehicle and experience this 4500sq km “saline desert” before continuing our game drive to look for the Big 4.  We arrive back at Halali where our guide will prepare a delicious lunch whilst we have a dip in the pool or relax by the camp waterhole.  After lunch we begin our final game drive across the park towards Okaukuejo calling into some well-known waterholes and leave the park prior to sunset. Accommodation tonight is just outside the park in a comfortable spacious twin share rooms with a modern en-suite bathroom facilities, creating an ideal space to sit back, relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you. Fantastic dinner is prepared by our guide and another early night is recommended.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 3 – Swakopmund 

Enjoy an early morning breakfast and departure from our lodge is at 07h30. The route today takes us into the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Damaraland. We have the chance to meet the wonderful Herero, Himba & Damara ladies who sell their handmade arts and crafts to support their rural families. A light roadside lunch is served en-route in the shadow of Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, and we can interact with some of the colorful local characters who live in this harsh environment. On the drive down the Skeleton Coast we explore the remains of a small shipwreck arriving in Swakopmund late afternoon which gives you time to explore this quaint seaside town on foot (depending on the season). Our guide will be happy to recommend a good restaurant for our evening meal or we can join for a group meal (own expense).  Overnight accommodation is in twin share rooms with en-suite bathroom.

Meals: Breakfast and Lunch

Day 4 – Windhoek – End of Safari

Leisurely breakfast and the option to join one of the many optional activities available here such as: quad biking, sand boarding, scenic flight over the shipwrecks just to name a few.  For those interested in birds our driver will be happy to take us to Walvis Bay to see the flamingos in the Walvis Bay lagoon which is a protected RAMSAR Site for birds and a visit to Dune 7, the highest dune in the area, to experience the “sand sea” along the coastal strip.  We will return to Windhoek in the afternoon with a light lunch served en-route. We make a brief stop at the Okahandja Wood Carving Markets where we can haggle for locally produced goods from the carvers themselves before being dropped at our overnight accommodation in Windhoek.
