Country(s):

A small-group lodge safari through the vast desert of Namibia and lush delta of Botswana, starting and ending in Windhoek, Namibia – 17 Days


Highlights:

Windhoek – Windhoek is the capital of Namibia, the Heroes’ Acre memorial is located south of the city. On a hilltop in the city centre, the 1890s Alte Feste (a former military headquarters) and Independence Memorial Museum is located.

San Bushman Experience – A unique opportunity to visit the fast-vanishing world of the Bushman (now more correctly call the San people). Get to see, experience, witness and learn how they hunt for food as well as how they live.

Moremi Game Reserve – Moremi Game Reserve is located in northern Botswana, in the Okavango Delta. The Moremi Game Reserve, although not one of the largest parks, prevent insights and views even for the most experienced of travelers. It is home to nearly 500 species of bird and a vast array of other species including Cape buffalo, Angolan giraffe, black rhino and so much more.

Caprivi – Caprivi boasts an abundance of river life, and provides ample opportunity for a truly unique Namibia safari experience on the banks of the many areas that traverse the region! Caprivi is home to an abundance of wildlife, with up to 70% of the bird species to inhabit Namibia having been recorded visiting here.

Etosha National Park – Etosha means ‘huge white area’ or ‘place of dry water’ and he National Park certainly lives up to this description! Etosha National Park is a protected area in northern Namibia. It’s a vast shallow pan, which shines brightly in the African sun due to crystallized salt on the surface of the ground.

Spitzkoppe rock formations – Spitzkoppe is a group of bald granite peaks or inselbergs located between Usakos and Swakopmund in the Namib Desert of Namibia. The granite is more than 120 million years old and the highest outcrop rises about 1.784 metres above sea level.

Swakopmund – Swakopmund is a coastal city in Namibia, west of Windhoek. It’s sandy beaches face the Atlantic Ocean. The city’s colonial landmarks include the Swakopmund lighthouse and the Mole (an old sea wall). Swakopmund is situated in the Namib Desert and is the fourth largest population centre in Namibia.

Walvis Bay – Walvis Bay is a port town on the coast of Namibia. Its tidal lagoon is home to abundances of bird life including flamingos, pelicans and Damara terns.

Sossusvlei – The Sossusvlei area is fed by a river called Tsuachab River – the dunes actually prevent the entire pathway of this river. The Tsuachab River only flows right through Sossusvlei every 5 to 10 years, making it a rare sight to see. The Sossusvlei dunes are about 60km from the Sesriem ate which about an hours drive.

Travelling Time & Distances: AAll travelling times are affected by road conditions, border crossings, detours and weather conditions, therefore on certain days travelling times may be longer than anticipated especially where there is a lot of distance to be covered. Please keep in mind that the time it takes to travel 100 km in your home country is not equivalent to the time it takes to travel 100 km on African roads, therefore we encourage you to sit back and enjoy the spectacular scenery Africa has to offer. Where possible additional stops will be made to ensure your travelling comfort at all times.
