A self-drive tour through Namibia that offers insight into the wonders of this beautiful location, starting  and ending in Windhoek, Namibia – 12 Days


Tour Highlights

Windhoek – There are a variety of highlights that can be seen in Windhoek during a Namibian safari. One such highlight is the Alte Festung, or the ‘old fortress’. Once the military headquarters of Windhoek, it stands today as a state museum and retains the title as the oldest building in Windhoek, with foundations that were laid in 1890.

Etosha National Park – Etosha means ‘huge white area’ or ‘place of dry water’, and the National Park certainly lives up to this description! It’s a vast shallow pan, which shines brightly in the African sun due to crystallized salt on the surface of the ground. The Etosha National Park features several waterholes that provide some of the best game viewing opportunities during the dry season, when the surrounding lands are dry and arid.

Damaraland – Bordered by Windhoek, the Kalahari Desert, the Namib Desert and Ovamboland, Damaraland is a unique Namibian attraction to witness whilst on safari with Jenman. It contains some of the most scenic areas in the country, and a Namibian safari to Damaraland will brings tourists into the company of desert elephants, black rhinos, ostriches and springbok.

Swakopmund – When it comes to having fun, you’ll be able to choose from an exciting range of activities to enjoy whilst on your Namibian safari! From sand boarding to quad biking, fishing to beach angling and diving to hot air ballooning, there is something for everyone no matter your age!

Sossusvlei – The Sossusvlei area is fed by a river called the 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 6 0km from the Sesriem gate which is about an hours drive.
