A day-by-day breakdown of what to expect and where you'll be staying.


Namibia Dash

Day 1, Windhoek to Etosha National Park

Travelling north,  arriving at Anderson Gate by mid-afternoon.  After entering Etosha we game drive our way through to Okaukuejo, Etosha’s main rest camp and resort where we will check in and set up camp.After your evening meal there are still more chances to see Etosha’s big game at a floodlit waterhole, situated on the boundary of our camp and easily reachable within a minute or two on foot.

 

Day 2, Etosha National Park to Etosha National Park via (Sossusvlei)

A full day’s worth of game driving awaits and we leave early to enjoy the cool morning air, making our way to Halali camp, situated in the middle of the park.

Along the way we visit several waterholes and are afforded splendid views of the massive Etosha Pan, a shallow depression that is dry for the greater part of the year, but fed by moisture from perennial springs on the fringes. We stop at Halali camp for a rest and a leisurely lunch before continuing to the eastern side of the park and our camp next to FortNamutoni.

Day 3, Etosha National Park to Windhoek


Be prepared for the long, scenic transit back to Windhoek. We pass through towns and rural areas, stopping in the small town of Okahandja, the home of Namibia’s largest wood carving market.  The stalls operate on a local co-operative basis and offer a vast array of truly Namibian souvenirs.

We are due back in Windhoek late afternoon/ early evening and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.  This night’s accommodation is included in the price of the safari, but dinner will be for the client’s own account.

Day 4, Windhoek to Sesriem

We travel out over the ErosMountains and along scenic roads on our way south-west to the desert. Heading down from Namibia’s central plateau by way of the beautiful Remhoogte Pass, we reach open plains and the tiny settlement of Solitaire.

We cross some open grass savannah and farmlands before the terrain gives way to the immense red sand dune desert of the Namib.  We aim to arrive at our camp during the late afternoon and watch the colours glow and change on distant mountains to the east..

Day 5, Sesriem

A pre-dawn start is essential this morning as we want to catch the soft light of the sunrise on the desert. After passing through Sesriem, we head into the heart of the dune field, reaching Sossusvlei on foot, trekking the last 5 km through the dunes.   

Ancient mineral pans, stunted camel thorn trees and the chance of seeing a gemsbok or ostrich makes it essential to remember your camera! We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting dune 45. As the day wears on we return to Sesriem for lunch, escaping the heat of the afternoon.  As the day cools off in the late afternoon we will take a short excursion to the SesriemCanyon.

Day 6, Sesriem to Windhoek

After breakfast we begin our journey back to Windhoek following a different route, ascending the massive Gamsberg Pass in the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range on our way back to civilization.  We are due back in Windhoek late afternoon / early evening and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.  Your accommodation tonight is not included in the price of the safari.
