You will be collected between 08:00 and 08:45 from Windhoek hotel. We take the B1 road southwards, heading to Mariental. On the road, you will discover sociable weaver bird nests and the first dunes of the Kalahari Semi-Desert. You will reach your accommodation in the early afternoon.

The next day morning, you will be guided on a walk to a community of bushmen where you will learn about tracking and craft making. In the late afternoon, you will take a sunset nature drive on the Intu Afrika Reserve. After your drive, you'll return to the lodge where you can have dinner and spend the evening as you'd like.

The next morning, we suggest taking an early morning drive to Sossusvlei Dunes to visit Sesriem Canyon. The earlier you get there, the more brilliant and striking the orange colors of the canyon will be with the low sunlight, and you'll be able to better avoid the heat. You can hike around the canyon for as long as you'd wish before driving back to your accommodation.

Day 6 & 7: Swakopmund

Time/ Distance: 4 hr 52 min (403.2 km)

Namibia is a land of contrasts. Today we will move from the Swakopmund desert to sea, crossing the Tropic of Capricorn and traversing the Gaub and Kuiseb passes. As we climb out the dry river bed at the bottom of Kuiseb Canyon, a spectacular desert landscape unfolds before us. We will stopover in Walvis Bay to visit the lagoon. It is home to many water birds including Great and Lesser flamingos, Damara terns, pelicans, and avocets. We continue to Swakopmund along the scenic coastal road, with dunes on one side and the cold Atlantic on the other. Dinner will be at the lodge.

The next day, you'll have the entire day free to explore this charming and historic town. Modern Swakopmund has a very strong German influence due to colonization during the 1800s, and a large portion of its residents still speak German today.

Overnight & Dinner at Pebble Stone House

Day 8 & 9: Skeleton Coast

Time/ Distance: 4 hr 32 min (227 km)

Today our adventure takes us to the Atlantic Ocean and our final destination at Cape Cross. We travel westwards where we enter the Skeleton Coast. The coastline itself is a very hostile but fascinating area known for its numerous shipwrecks over the years, all victims of the thick fog, unpredictable currents, and rough seas.

The next day, enjoy a delicious cooked breakfast, and then a short walk to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve. The reserve is home to one of the world’s largest breeding colonies of Cape fur seals and during the breeding season, up to 200 000+ seals can be spotted basking on the beach, certainly a sight and smell to behold.

Day 10 & 11: Twyfelfontein

Time/ Distance: 5 hr 12 min (247 km)

Today you head into one of the most beautiful desert regions in Namibia, Damaraland. You drive west via the Grootberg Pass and then take a detour to visit the ancient Bushman rock engravings at Twyfelfontein.

This morning you will enjoy the Twfelfontein. It is a rocky site situated in the Kunene Region of north-western Namibia. The site contains around 2,000 rock carvings and in 2007, UNESCO approved it as a World Heritage Site. The site is one of the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa and was proclaimed a National Monument in 1952. Experience cultural and ethnic meeting with the Damara tribe at the Living Museum surrounded by fascinating nature, rock formations, and the magnificent landscape of Damaraland.

Day 12 & 13: Etosha South

Time/ Distance: 3 hr 25 min (324.9 km)

Wake up early and continue traveling south toward Etosha National Park, making some short stops for supplies and fuel. The Etosha National Park is home to over 100 mammal species, 340 bird species, and 110 reptile species. Animals, particularly during the dry season, are dependent on the many waterholes found in the park, and these serve as great places for game viewing. Vegetation in the park is varied but consists mostly of mopane woodland and grassy plains. Arrive at the lodge for dinner.

Today we will spend most of the day searching for animals. We will visit some waterholes and stop to view the Etosha Pan, also known as the "place of dry water". This extensive, flat depression is about 5,000 km2 and a place of shimmering mirages. Seeing large herds of game in this setting is a unique experience. We may stop at Halali to have lunch, before returning to our lodge. We may also see elephants and lions. In the evening we can enjoy a glass of wine and experience a fabulous dinner at our lodge.
