Namibia: Etosha & The Deserts

Rugged desert and mountain landscapes; the stark simplicity of rock and sand; magical light and colour effects over vast distances; friendly and vibrant people; and superb nature and game-viewing opportunities. These are all strands in the vast tapestry that is Namibia. Join us as we fly you to Windhoek for an exciting and unforgettable 12-day safari into central Namibia – and share in its diversity of African experiences.

With your Landscape guide and air-conditioned minibus or small coach, we head south to the Namib Naukluft Park and the famous Sossusvlei dunes, staying at the beautifully situated Namib Naukluft Lodge. We will explore the stone desert and moon Landscape of the Swakop valley, with its ancient Welwitschia plants and superb photographic opportunities. Our stay-over is in Swakopmund and we’ll get to know this delightful old colonial town, set between sea and desert. We will also visit Walvis Bay – with an optional boat cruise to see the dolphins and seals from close up.
Leaving Swakopmund, we head north to the Skeleton coast at Cape Cross with its vast seal colony. We head inland past the imposing Brandberg massif in the rocky desert of Damaraland, across the plains where desert elephants can sometimes be seen. Here we stay at Twyfelfontein, famous for the ancient etchings on the rocks, and its timeless desert setting.

Next we visit Namibia’s most famous game area – Etosha. The game viewing here is superb, whether observing the activities at the camp’s waterhole, or on our frequent game drives throughout the area.

Moving south to the Tsumeb and Otjiwarongo area, we see the fascinating underground Lake Otjikoto and later we visit the bustling woodcarvers’ markets. The last night is spent at a game lodge near Windhoek.
