The Namib Desert stretches from the south all the way along the Namibian coastline for over 1,500km and heads 200 km inland. It's spectacular. The world's only coastal desert and the world's oldest. From the giant sand dunes of Sossusvlei, also some of the world's highest, to the cold Atlantic Ocean and the resort town of Swakopmund. Damaraland is easily one of the most scenic regions in Namibia, home to the desert-adapted elephants and of course no Namibian holiday is complete without a big game safari in Etosha National Park set against the backdrop of the stark white pan so large it is visible from space.

  • Discover the giant sand dunes and endless desert landscapes of the Namib Desert in Sossusvlei
  • Swakopmund on the Skeleton Explore the world's only coastal desert
  • Rock engravings, giant granite boulders and desert-adapted wildlife in Damaraland
  • Go on safari in Etosha National Park, one of Africa's great game parks

Full Itinerary

Price from  7363 per adult. Based on sharing double / twin rooms
Day 1 :

You will be met by the car rental company representative on arrival and transferred to their offices in Windhoek to complete all rental procedures. You will then meet with our representative to hand over your travel package. Feel free to ask questions and take notes as you talk through your route.

When you're there: Your time of arrival will determine whether there is time to head into town, go shopping or see some of the sights. Alternatively, check in at your hotel and simply relax, it may well have been a long day especially if you came off a long-haul flight. Rest up, tomorrow the real adventure begins. Dine at the hotel for dinner or grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant nearby. Either way, it's best to make a reservation. Speak to reception for assistance.

Lodging: The Weinberg Windhoek

Meals: Full board

Day 2&3 :

Travel south to the Namib Desert for the next two nights. The drive takes about five hours and, while that may sound like a long time to be on the road, it's a scenic drive.

On the way: If you still need supplies, snacks, and drinks for the road, stop at a fuel station or shop before departing south. First to Rehoboth and then from here decide which route you want to take. Every option takes you via some incredible scenic passes. Stop for photos, to stretch your legs and enjoy a picnic lunch with a view. Why not? It's all about the journey in Namibia with much to see along the way.

When you're there: Visit the highlights inside the park. Plan to enter the park when the Sesriem gates open at sunrise. The earlier the better. Pay your entry fee at the office on the way out. The first stretch is 60km on a tarred road to the parking area. From here you can walk the last 5 km in thick sand, drive with your own vehicle (engage 4WD) or take a shuttle (additional costs apply). Go see Dead Vlei first. A short climb up the dunes reveals the beauty of a cracked white pan scattered with 900-year-old trees. In shadow before the sun comes up, you'll have the perfect shot with the red sand of the dunes a backdrop. On to Sossusvlei, climb Big Daddy or go climb Dune 45. On the way out go explore Sesriem Canyon. By now it's getting hot. If it's too hot, which it often is, return in the afternoon for more.

Your lodge will offer guided excursions. Join in if you prefer not to go it alone. Take a breakfast pack and enjoy it in the dunes. Nature walks and drives at sunset. Take it all in. Find some time to relax at the pool too. Splendid.

Our tip: Book a hot air balloon safari over the dunes. It's spectacular.

Lodging: Le Mirage Desert Lodge

Meals: Full board

Day 4&5 :

Today a five-hour drive north will reveal a whole new take on Namibia's beautiful landscapes as the mountains and giant sand dunes become open plains as you approach the foggy coast and Swakopmund where you will spend the next 2 nights.

On the way: Stop in at Solitaire to refuel and sample their legendary baked goods. Continue on via the Kuiseb and Gaub Pass and take a photo at the Tropic of Capricorn. Look out for oryx, ostrich and springbok across the gravel plains. Stretch your legs at a viewpoint and marvel at the grandeur of the endless landscape. Head to the coast and take a drive through Walvis Bay or head straight to Swakopmund, either along the coastal road or via Dune 7 on the back road along the dune belt. If you want to see the ancient welwitschia plants, the detour via Ganab and the Moonlandscape. For this you'll need a permit which you can get at the NWR (Namibia Wildlife Resooffice inside the Sesriem gate before you depart Sossusvlei.

When you're there: Options are limitless. There are plenty of activities to choose from. Take a look at our list of Swakopmund Activities to decide which you'd like to include during your stay on top of relaxing, strolling through town and enjoying the many restaurants and eateries.

Lodging: Strand Hotel

Meals: Full board

Day 6 & 7 :

Leaving the coast today, you will make your way inland to Damaraland.

On the way: Head north along the desolate coast into the Skeleton Coast National Park then east and exit via the Springbok WaterGate. This calls for an early start, especially if you wish to stop at Cape Cross Seal Colony on the way. For an alternative but equally beautiful route, head inland at Henties Bay, past the Brandberg Massif near Uis, and on to the Twyfelfontein area. Watch as the open plains become rocky outcrops and dry ephemeral riverbeds.

When you're there: One full day is set aside to explore the beauty of the area. Go see the sights: The Twyfelfontein rock engravings, Burnt Mountain, and Organ Pipes. Go in search of the desert-adapted elephant and other wildlife. Visit the Damara Living Museum for an insight into the local culture.

Our tip: Book activities with a lodge guide.

Lodging: Mowani Mountain Camp

Meals: Full board

Day 8:
Etosha National Park - South

The drive to Etosha National Park is a scenic few hours through more of Damaraland's singular beauty. The Andersons Gate is much closer to Damaraland and will take about three hours.

On the way: Today's drive is not as long and barely warrants a stop, barring a quick stop at the Petrified Forest, a comfort stop at Outjo and a picture of the Ugab Terrace. Depending on your departure time and therefore your arrival time, check in at your lodge, just outside the park entrance gates, grab a bite to eat and then head into Etosha for an afternoon game drive. Purchase a map of Etosha at the shop at Okaukuejo. They also have some basic supplies, drinks, and snacks. There is a fuel station inside the park gates and one just outside before you enter. Make sure the tank is full. You can easily drive 200km inside the park and you wouldn't want to get stuck.

Etosha is one of Africa's greatest parks with good reason. Not only is it scenic and beautiful, the large number of animals make this a game-viewing extravaganza. Keep your eyes peeled. Sit at a waterhole and watch the animals come and go. You're likely to see numerous species at any given moment.

Lodging: Mokuti Safari Lodge

Meals: Full board

Day 9 & 10:
Etosha National Park

The drive through Etosha National Park to your next lodge on the eastern side of Etosha is a scenic few hours of game driving. The drive can take anything from 2 hours depending on how often you stop for game viewing.

When you're there: Your lodge will offer guided game drives into Etosha and game walks in the private reserve. Wildlife. Wildlife. Wildlife.

Lodging: Onguma Bush Camp

Meals: Full board

Day 11 :
Windhoek ( Departure)

You have a long drive ahead of you today: up to six hours. The roads are all paved so it's a comfortable ride to arrive in time for your onward flight or a night in Windhoek.

On the way: Okahandja has the largest wood carvers' market in Namibia, stop here for some last-minute souvenirs.

Plan a late departure flight as you still need to drop the vehicle and transfer to the airport. Leave enough time to ensure you are at the airport well within 2 hours of your departure flight.

Perched on the rim and affording spectacular views of the world famous Ngorongoro crater floor below, the ivy-clad Ngorongoro Serena Lodge offers good rooms, friendly service, well run facilities and delicious food.

Ngorongoro Serena Lodge is actually built into the rim of the crater itself, with the foliage-covered native stone of the lodge blending into the surrounding hillside. The views of the crater will certainly take your breath away: the 75 rooms, bar and restaurant all overlook the picturesque valley below. The rooms have attractive wooden floors and are decorated with ancient cave art. Each features modern en suite bathrooms, patios and heating as the temperatures can significantly drop here at night.

The main building contains a large restaurant, bar, gift shop, TV area and an attractive outside decking area, perfect for relaxing while admiring the view. There are buffets for breakfast and lunch but an a la carte menu is available for dinner.

Beside the exciting safaris within the crater, there are numerous walks and activities one can do from the lodge including visits to local tribal villages.

Within Ngorongoro crater is a diverse ecosystem representing nearly every habitat found in East Africa. Open grasslands are inhabited by wildebeest, zebra, lion, cheetah and black rhino; acacia woodland provides cover for leopards; swamps supply the food for elephants and buffalos; freshwater pools harbour hippos; and a small soda lake is a feeding ground for flocks of flamingos. In addition there are small outcrops of rocks which give shade for lions and even an highly arid area of shifting sand dunes.
