Dunes and Waterways

Day 3 to 5, Okavango Delta

Early morning and late afternoon game walks give you time in the middle of the day to relax, chill out and enjoy your surroundings. Why don't you have a go at poling your own mokoro? It is not as easy as it looks! This is game walking and bush camping at its best!

Day 6, Okavango Delta to Rundu

Nambia here we come! Mahango Game Reserve is our first stop on the edge of the Okavango River - a small but gloriously peaceful game reserve. We then travel along the Caprivi Strip to tonights overnight stop on the banks of the river.

Day 7, Rundu to Etosha National Park

We arrive at Etosha National Park in the late afternoon. Etosha is Namibia's major nature reserve, covering over 22 000 square kilometres with a large variety of animal and bird species. The park is situated around the Etosha Pan, and has a network of gravel roads that enables us to get to far & remote areas of the park.

Dunes and Waterways

Day 9, Etosha National Park

We have a full day of game driving, making our way from east to west, across 150kms of the park. We relax this evening listening to the sounds of Africa. Floodlit waterholes allow us to get as close to the action as possible, and still be behind the fence!

Day 10, Etosha National Park to Twyfelfontein

Leaving the wildlife behind us we travel to the world heritage site of Twyfelfontein. Over 2000 ancient bushman paintings adorn the rocks, caves and overhangs of this site and we take time to explore the area on foot with our local guide.

Dunes and Waterways

Day 11, Twyfelfontein to Swakopmund via (Cape Cross Seal Colony)

The infamous and desolate Skeleton Coast is flanked by bone-bleaching desert and the crashing Atlantic Ocean. We arrive at Cape Cross Seal Colony for a visit before heading south to Swakopmund - Namibia's adventure capital.

Day 12, Swakopmund

A leisure day today to get the feel of this quaint German town sandwiched between the edge of a massive dune field and the ocean. Take on some adventure activities or relax in a cafe on the beachfront.

Dunes and Waterways

Day 13, Swakopmund to Sesriem

Today we head south, past Walvis Bay enroute to Sesriem. Close by and surrounded by a sea of sand dunes, is Sossusvlei. The top of the dunes, some over 300m high, offers fantastic views of the desert. We spend the afternoon exploring and can enjoy the glorious sunset from the top of a big dune should the weather permit.

Day 14, Sesriem to Sesriem via (Sossusvlei)

An early start as we enter into the park and head for Dune 45. Clamber to the top for a stunning high-point view over the dunes.

Stunning photographic opportunities are available in the dunes so bring those cameras!!
