Itinerary

Day 1: Lagoon Lodge, Walvis Bay (397.6km)

Our first stop will be at Daan Viljoen Game Reserve, a reserve on the western side of Windhoek that provides excellent dry-country birding. From here we make our way down the escarpment and across the spectacular plains of the Namib Desert.

We will arrive in Walvis Bay in the late afternoon. After settling into our perfectly situated accommodation for the evening we will get together for some afternoon birdwatching. We will spend the late afternoon at the famous Walvis Bay lagoon, which hosts several wonderful bird species.

We will return to our lodge to freshen up and then we will have dinner at one of the many good-quality establishments in town. We will then return to our lodge for a good night’s rest.        

  • Included Activities: Visit Dan Viljoen and Walvisbay Lagoon

Overnight & Lagoon Lodge

Bed and Breakfast

Day 2: Brandberg White Lady Lodge, Brandberg (266.7km)

After an early breakfast at the lodge we will focus on finding Dune Lark, Namibia’s only true endemic and a great bird to have on any birder’s list.

From here we will make our way north to Damaraland, driving past one of Namibia’s most recognizable landmarks in the distance, the Spitzkoppe.

The plains of Damaraland are home to many special bird species. This region is also home to an assortment of scientifically important desert-adapted wildlife such as African Elephant, Black Rhinoceros and Lion, which somehow survive and thrive in this near-barren landscape. If we are lucky we might see some of these special animals.

We should arrive at our lodge situated on the Huab River by late afternoon. It is close to the Brandberg, Namibia’s highest mountain. Our accommodation for tonight is a beautiful lodge, with stunning views. We will check in and have some time in our rooms. We will then get together to update our lists.

Day 3: Omandumba Bush Camp, Erongo Mountains (141.7km)

After coffee and an early breakfast we will use the morning to explore the Huab River and surrounding Mopane woodland, home to several of the Namibian near endemics and other important species.

We will then have lunch and continue southeast to the incredible rocky topography of the Erongo area. The landscape is dominated by rugged granite outcrops standing tall over the surrounding arid plains. It is the best area in the country to search for the very secretive Hartlaub’s Spurfowl, and although probably better to search for this special species tomorrow morning, we will have a quick walk among the boulders to try our luck. Our lodge is perfectly situated amongst the rocks and staying here is the perfect ending to an amazing birding tour.

We will have dinner and update our lists, and perhaps sit on the deck and enjoy the incredible views. After dinner we retire to our tents and enjoy a good night’s sleep; tomorrow morning we have some big targets!

 

  • Included activities Rock Art Drive and The Living Museum of the San People

Day 4: Back to Windhoek (249.8km)

We will start the day with an early walk around the lodge. The granite hills surrounding the lodge are famous for some very special birds. We will return to the dining area for a late breakfast, and at this time the massive numbers of Rosy-faced Lovebird should be busy with their morning foraging. It is special sipping your coffee with hundreds of these colourful (and luckily wild) lovebirds around you! After our exciting morning of birding we will pack up our bags, check out and drive back to Windhoek. It is a drive of about 2 and a half hours to the southeast back to the capital.
Once in the city we will either take you to the Hosea Kutako International Airport, or back to your hotel or guesthouse if you are staying over, or we could swing by one of the other birding hotspots around town if you are only flying onward later in the evening.
