Travel date: Calendar
D1: Windhoek
Meet and Greet • Windhoek tour • Katutura Tour
 -Meet and Greet at the airport.
 -Embark on your guided tour aboard your minibus: He will accompany you all along your circuit from Windhoek (Day 1) to Chobe (Day 13)
 -Saunter the sidewalks on a city tour of Windhoek. The capital of Namibia lies at an altitude of 1 654 metres within the Khomashochland, a hilly plateau in the centre of the country. With its unique blend of European and African architecture, history and culture, the tranquil city has a slightly vintage feel. Its first inhabitants named the city as a "place of vapour, water or fire" due to the numerous hot water springs in the area. Following the arrival of the Germans in 1890 the city grew around a fortress, or the Alte Feste, and the Tintenpalast (Ink Palace), Namibia's parliament building. The Christuskirche, built in neo-Gothic / Art Nouveau style, rises above the city showcasing the German architectural influence of the time.
 -Imagine the trials and tribulations of forced relocation as you tour Katutura Township in Windhoek. The name of this settlement is Otjiherero and means ‘a place we do not want to live’ and was created in 1961 following the forced removal of indigenous people from the Old Location at Hochland Park. This is where your insightful tour begins as you make your way to Katutura to mingle with the locals and get a taste of traditional township life in Namibia. Your first stop is at the meat market to sample the famous Kapana grilled beef before moving on to Eveline Street, the longest in Katutura where vibey social activities continue the whole week through and most of the local bars are to be found. End off in Penduka on the shore of Goreangab Dam where you can peruse beautiful Namibian handicrafts and refuel at the restaurant.
 -Dinner: Hotel Safari
 -Overnight: Hotel Safari (Budget (Standard) Room - Dinner Bed and Breakfast)
Itinerary day photo
D2: Windhoek - Mariental
National Botanic Garden • Sundowner Drive
 -Breakfast
 -Root out floral wonders on a tour of the National Botanic Garden in Windhoek. This 12 hectare nature reserve in the heart of the city is the only botanical garden in Namibia, aimed at conserving and promoting plants indigenous to the country. A large part of the garden is unlandscaped so that visitors have the opportunity to see the plants in their natural environment of highland savannah. There is a 'Desert House' display with plants from the Namib Desert, forests of Windhoek aloe and quiver trees, as well as walking trails and picnic spots to enjoy the peaceful setting. Over 200 bird species have been recorded and small mammals such as rock hyraxes can be spotted.
 -Travel to Mariental
 -Lunch: Lapa Lange Game Lodge
 -Sunset game drive in the lodge reserve . This diverse and stark landscape shimmers in the setting sun, reflecting the majestic beauty of southern Namibia. Over 30 different species of game can be found in this semi-desert savannah, including rhino, black impala, golden and white oryx, black and white springbok, white blesbok, nyala, giraffe, cheetah, kudu, gemsbok and zebra. Before the sun disappears beneath the horizon, enjoy a refreshing drink and some welcome snacks in the stillness of the semi-desert before continuing your game drive in search of nocturnal creatures.
 -Dinner: Lapa Lange Game Lodge
 -Overnight: Lapa Lange Game Lodge (Luxury Room - Dinner Bed and Breakfast)
Itinerary day photo
D3: Mariental - Namib-Naukluft
School Visit • Namib-Naukluft Introduction • Sundowner Drive
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Maltahohe
 -Meet the school children of Huisen. This school is located in Mariental at the edge of the Kalahari Desert in an area that has long been a centre for the indigenous Nama people. During your visit you can learn more about the challenges of rural schooling in Namibia and how poverty is a hardship that seeps into all aspects of life.
 -Lunch: Oahera Center
 -Prepare to be mesmerised as you explore the enormous Namib-Naukluft National Park. The park covers an area of just under 50 000 km2, and is the largest nature conservation area in Namibia, and the fourth largest in the world. This is a vast, remote area encompassing dramatic landscapes, from an impressive mountain massif to desert plains and high dunes, to deep gorges and an estuarine lagoon. The Naukluft area is situated north-west of Maltahöhe on the road to the coastal town of Swakopmund at the edge of the Namib Desert. Amid the semi-desert landscape and mountainous escarpment, mountain zebra and other species of game can be found. Sesriem, the main entrance gate to the park, lies west of the Naukluft mountains, where the Tsauchab River disappears dramatically down a steep gorge at a huge, dried-up pan, called Sossusvlei. Here, the towering dunes, reaching up to 300 m high - among the tallest dunes in the world - extend as far as the eye can see, and their multi-coloured hues vary from pale apricot to vivid reds and oranges. Sandwich Harbour, 42 km south of the port of Walvis Bay, is a large, reed-lined marine lagoon home to many coastal and freshwater birds and only accessibly by 4x4 vehicles.
 -Sundowner drive to discover the dunes on the property of the lodge. Enjoy a drink as the sun sets over the desert.
 -Dinner: Sossusvlei Lodge
 -Overnight at the Rest Camp: Desert Quiver Camp (Chalets - Bed Only)
Itinerary day photo
D4: Namib-Naukluft
Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei (Shuttle) • Sesriem Canyon
 -Breakfast
 -Travel by 4x4 shuttle to the incredible site of Sossusvlei. Meaning 'dead-end marsh', Sossusvlei is a salt pan surrounded by ancient dunes that are among the highest in the world, reaching up to 300-400 metres. Visitors from all around the world come to capture haunting images of the towering coral-hued dunes. Skeletal remnants of 550-year-old dead camelthorn trees rise from another dry lake, the Dead Vlei, in stark contrast against its surrounding sea of sand. While it may seem that this stark environment could not sustain life, many species of plants and animals have adapted to the harsh conditions, among them the gemsbok (oryx), which can survive without water for weeks.
 -Stare into the abyss at the Sesriem Canyon located 4,5 km from the Sesriem gate to the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The 50 metre-deep gorge was formed by the Tsauchab River as a result of millions of years of erosion, and is one the few places in the Namib Desert that holds water all year round - there are water pools at the bottom of the canyon even in the dry season. Early Afrikaans explorers tied six (ses) leather ropes (riem) together to pull buckets of water from the canyon for their livestock.
 -Lunch: Sossusvlei Lodge
 -Temps libre
 -Dinner: Sossusvlei Lodge

D5: Namib-Naukluft - Swakopmund
Kuiseb Canyon • Moon Landscape and Welwitschia Mirabilis
 -Breakfast
 -Capture hypnotic scenic images at the Kuiseb Canyon. The ephemeral Kuiseb River has carved an impressive nine kilometre long canyon which can be seen from the C14 road close to the town of Solitaire. This river is the dividing line between the endless rocky plains of the north and the sand dunes that end near the Orange River. After the rainy season in the summer, the Kuiseb River mostly dries up but some water remains at the canyon. Klipspringer, leopard, hyena, jackal and springbok can sometimes be spotted.
 -Lunch: Rostock Ritz Lodge
 -Travel to Swakopmund
 -Walk on the moon Namibian-style at the Namib Moon Landscape, a name given to a part of the valley of the Swakop River near Swakopmund. The lunar-type landscape, eroded by thousands of years of wind and rain, is awe-inspiring. The river that flows from time to time at the bottom of the valley brings a short-lived period of fertility to the region and the water allows some plants to survive in this hostile environment. Man tried to cultivate parts of this valley for agriculture at the beginning of the previous century, with little success due to the harshness of the environment. Discover the Welwitschia mirabilis, a botanical curiosity that is found almost exclusively in areas of fog of the Namib Desert. Some specimens are older than 1500 years.
 -Dinner: Cosmopolitan Restaurant
 -Overnight: Atlantic Villa Guest House (Standard Room - Bed and Breakfast)
Itinerary day photo
D6: Swakopmund
Dolphin Cruise • Swakopmund Orientation
 -Breakfast
 -Inhale the fresh, salty air as you prepare for a marine dolphin motorboat cruise to Pelican Point. The calm waters of Walvis Bay's lagoon are teeming with marine life. The cruise traverses the oyster lines, Walvis Bay Harbour and Pelican Point with its iconic lighthouse, where Cape fur seals play in the waves and come right up to the boat. Further out bottlenose and heaviside dolphins swim alongside the boat, and whales can be spotted between July and November. Flamingos, pelicans and even jackass penguins are common sightings during the cruise.
 -Déjeuner libre
 -Soak up the salty sea breeze on an orientation tour of Swakopmund. A popular seaside resort providing visitors respite from the heat of the desert, the town is a quirky mix of German architecture, stemming from its origins as a harbour town for German South West Africa, and the African love for adrenalin. To this day, the town's main inhabitants and visitors are German-speaking, preserving European heritage at the edge of the Namib Desert. The harbour activities were moved to Walvis Bay in 1915 but tourism continues to thrive as visitors come to see the incongruous Baltic Sea architecture among palm tree-lined streets, and participate in the plethora of outdoor activities on offer. The most iconic remnant of the German colonial era in Swakopmund is the ornate Victorian Hohenzollern building, dominated by a figure of Atlas holding the world upon his shoulders. Other prominent examples of German architecture dating from the early 1900s include the Prinzessin Rupprecht Rezidenz (originally a military hospital and now a hotel), the Woermannhaus (1905), the youth hostel, the Lutheran Church on Post Street (1911), the court, the railway station which is also now a hotel (1901), the buildings on Sam Nujoma Avenue (previously Kaiser Wilhelm Strasse), the Arnold Shad Promenade, and the metal pier which was built in 1915, and recently rescued from dereliction.

D7: Swakopmund - Twyfelfontein
Damaraland Discover • Twyfelfontein World Heritage Site
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Twyfelfontein
 -Shield your eyes from the glare of the sun as you unearth the harsh beauty of Damaraland. The vast stretches of Damaraland’s semi-desert landscape are spectacular and hold rare and unusual sights such as desert-adapted elephants striding along the dusty earth and forests of petrified trees buried in beds of sandstone. Twyfelfontein is a World Heritage Site that conceals one of the continent’s largest collections of African rock art and engravings and there are various craters and mountains in the area to explore. The massive Brandberg massif stands as Namibia’s highest mountain, dominating the surrounding plains and home to an immense collection of early rock paintings including the famous White Lady. Another well-known landmark is Vingerkilp, a striking pinnacle of rock and natural obelisk balancing vertically on its own. Black rhino are present throughout the regions as well as many other animals, although these are more readily found in the east of Damaraland where the vegetation is more lush.
 -Lunch: Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
 -Read the pictures that paint a thousand words at the site of Twyvelfontein in the heart of Damaraland. With over 2 500 rock engravings dating back 6 000 years to the hunter-gatherers of the Stone Age, as well as numerous Khoikhoi rock painting sites estimated to be 2 000 years old, Twyfelfontein has one of the largest concentrations of rock petroglyphs in Africa, and was declared Namibia's first World Heritage Site in 2007. The ancient engravings and paintings depict the lives of lost communities and the animals with whom they shared the landscape. Twyfelfontein is translated to 'doubtful spring' in Afrikaans, referring to the /Ui-//aes spring that that lies within the valley along the slopes of the sandstone plateau.
 -Dinner: Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
 -Overnight: Twyfelfontein Country Lodge (Standard Room - Dinner, Bed and Breakfast (FIT))
Itinerary day photo
D8: Twyfelfontein - Etosha
Petrified Forest • Otjikandero Himba Visit
 -Breakfast
 -Touch trees of stone with a visit to the Petrified Forest, a remarkable site of fossilised tree trunks dating back to the paleontological era. Geological research has revealed that these trees belong to the pine family, and were washed down the continent in a massive flood to their current site, buried beneath hundreds of metres of sediment. Over millions of years, the pressure caused the organic material to be replaced by silica and completely transformed the trees into stone. The effects of erosion have exposed these tree relics, including two trees measuring up to 45 metres.
 -Travel to Kamanjab
 -Lunch: Melissa's Guesthouse(Oase Garni)
 -Travel to Etosha
 -Leave modernity behind you with a self-drive visit to the Himba people of Namibia. This tribe is one of the last in Africa to still live strictly within their age-old traditional beliefs and are found in semi-nomadic, scattered settlements in the remote regions of northern Namibia. They are characterised by their proud yet friendly stature, and the women are noted for their unusual beauty, enhanced by intricate hairstyles and traditional dress. During your visit you can experience the milking ceremony, traditionally carried out by female tribe members; the smoke bath, where women burn aromatic plants to perfume themselves; and learn all about the beliefs surrounding the holy fire, ancestors, and herbal medicine. Understand how hairstyles and jewellery are used to denote the status of tribe members as you begin to absorb the traditional lifestyle of this ancient tribe that has retained its independence from the Western world.
 -Dinner: Etosha Village
 -Overnight at the Lodge: Etosha Village (Standard room - Dinner, Bed and Breakfast)
Itinerary day photo
D9: Etosha
Etosha Discover • 4x4 Game Drive Full Day(o)
 -Breakfast
 -Full day game drive through the vast wilderness at the Etosha National Park. This spectacular wildlife park is dominated by a massive mineral pan, part of the Kalahari Basin, the floor of which was formed over 1 000 million years ago and fills up only for a short period of time when rains are heavy. Most of the year it is a shimmering mirage against which the long shadows of passing herds of game can be seen, providing a unique and stunningly stark landscape. Despite its aridness, the park is rich in wildlife and boasts the Big Five and over 100 other mammal species as well as thousands of birds that flock to the pan. During your game drive, stop at some of the waterholes to watch animals slake their thirst in the water.
 -Harmonise your spirit with the essence of wildlife on a full day 4x4 game drive at Etosha National Park. Proclaimed a game reserve in 1907, Etosha spreads over 22 270 km2 of saline desert, mopane forests and grassy scrublands. The park's most distinctive feature is the Etosha Pan, once a lake and now a massive white, salty depression that fills with pockets of pools after infrequent rains, attracting up to 1-million flamingos which use the pan as a breeding ground. The rain pools, along with approximately 30 waterholes and springs across the reserve, sustain an abundance of wildlife, including 340 bird and 114 mammal species (all of the Big Five are present), as well as some rarities like the Damara dik-dik, the black-faced impala and the Egyptian vulture. Among the predators are lion, cheetah, leopard and several species of wild cat. Stop at one of the rest camps for refreshments and to observe the waterholes they overlook which in turn quench the thirst of the animals that they attract. Namutoni has a Beau Geste charm and the historic fortress was once the northernmost German outpost and is now a national monument. (Optional rates: D9: Etosha 4x4 Game Drive Full day)

D10: Etosha - Rundu
Independant Memorial Museum • Sight Seeing • Hoba Meteorite National Heritage Site
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Windhoek
 -Take a walk through Namibia’s cultural history at the Independent Memorial Museum at Tsumeb. Namibia is a country of much cultural diversity as it first existed as a German colony and later as part of South Africa before gaining its independence in 1990. Its dry lands have long been inhabited by a variety of indigenous tribes and the country’s economy is supported mainly through agriculture and mining. Tsumeb is notable for the huge mineralised pipe that led to the town’s foundation, famous for its mineral richness and many millions of tonnes of spectacular grade ore that was mined from it. The museum contains extensive displays of the history of the Tsumeb mine, Namibian stamps and artillery from German troops that were retrieved from Lake Oshikoto. It also houses an intriguing ethnographic room displaying unique photographs and artefacts from the various ethnic groups that traditionally occupied Namibia.
 -Travel to Tsumeb
 -Fathom the myths and legends that surround the supposedly bottomless Otjikoto Lake. Contrary to early belief, this emerald-green subterranean lake is in fact 55 metres deep and lies on a thick succession of well-stratified dolomite and limestone thought to be about 700-million years old. As the rock mass eroded, roofless cavities were formed creating an upside down mushroom shaped lake, noted for its scenic setting and startling water colour. Ancient tribes believed that no living creature that entered the water ever came out alive again and its reputation of being bottomless possibly led to the dumping of a considerable supply of artillery and ammunition into its murky depths by retreating Schutztruppe, rather than let the armaments fall into the hands of the South African troops. A number of guns, large quantities of ammunition and an ammunition wagon still in perfect condition have subsequently been salvaged from the lake by divers.
 -Investigate evidence from outer space at the Hoba Meteorite National Heritage Site. Approximately 80 000 years ago a giant burning body entered the earth’s atmosphere and fell to the ground, although where it first struck no one knows as the massive meteor has no impact site, an anomaly that has confounded scientist for years. Today this 66 tonne rock can be seen on Hoba Farm in northern Namibia where it was discovered in 1920 by Jacobus Hermanus Britz, the owner of the farm at the time. It is the largest known meteorite in the world and estimated to have been between 200 and 400 million years old when it landed. It is comprised predominantly of iron and nickel and also holds trace elements of other rarer minerals that do not exist on earth. Its surface is indented with burn marks and this could be your only opportunity for an extra-terrestrial encounter that you can reach out and touch.

Rundu Discover
 -Breakfast
 -Admire intricate woodcarvings in Rundu. This town is the capital of the Kavango Region and located along the southern banks of the Okavango River, acting as a gateway to the Caprivi and a link for neighbouring African countries to the port at Walvis Bay. As such, it is a hub of trade and industry and includes a number of amenities such as banks, shops and service stations. The town is also a good place to pick up mementos of your African travels as it features a large open market, and adjacent to that, a woodcarvers market. Here, Namibia's most skilled woodcarvers make and sell their woodwork and other artefacts that are snapped up by visitors and proudly displayed the world over. Slow down to admire the picturesque river frontage of the town that is also known to showcase some spectacular sunset vistas.

Mahango Safari • 4x4 Afternoon Game Drive
 -Breakfast
 -Go off the beaten track at the Mahango Game Reserve. This small reserve lies between the Popa Falls and the Botswana border and is widely regarded as one of Namibia’s most varied and fascinating conservation areas, offering an unforgettable safari with incredible fauna in a truly wild landscape. The reserve consists of three distinct landscapes – rivers and wetlands; open grasslands; and dry woodlands – and holds water all year around, ensuring great and abundant game viewing. Visitors can see plenty of antelope as well as elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hippo, crocodile, warthog, baboon and over 400 bird species – attracted to the reserve by the large numbers of flower and fruit bearing trees. Don’t forget to look out for the giant baobabs as well as stop to admire the beautiful Popa Falls, one of the highlights of the western Caprivi that stretch over one kilometre in width and tumble down four metres of rocky outcrops to the Okavango riverbed.
 -Travel to Kongola
 -Lunch: Lianshulu Main Lodge
 -Late afternoon 4x4 game drive in Mudumu National Park, the park was established in 1990 and covers and area of 75000, mainly covered with mopane, Acasias and marshy plains. The park offers a unique wildlife living along the Kwando River.

D13: Kongola - Chobe
Katima Mulilo Discover • Chobe National Park • Afternoon Activity
 -Breakfast
 -Travel to Katima Mulilo
 -Explore the far northern reaches of Namibia with a tour of Katima Mulilo. This small town is the commercial capital of the eastern Caprivi Strip and marks the border to Zambia. It was once a military stronghold for the South African army during their war against freedom fighters in Angola and Zambia and infrastructure dating back to that time of conflict can still be seen today, with various military bases surrounding the town. Katima Mulilo provides some scenic water vistas as it lies on the southern banks of the Zambezi River, where lush riverine vegetation attracts plenty of birds and monkeys. The town is also the home of the community-based Caprivi Art Centre and holds an annual Caprivi Cultural Festival. The big open air African market is well worth a stop where travellers can collect all sorts of interesting trinkets and authentic craft items while mingling with the locals and getting a taste of Namibian life.
 -Travel to Chobe
 -Chobe National Park is one of the largest in Botswana, famed not only for the highest concentration of elephants found anywhere in Africa but also for having the densest population of game on the continent. This, together with its reputation of offering superb wildlife viewing all year round, makes it a highly popular travel destination. The park lies along the Chobe River and is comprised of four distinct ecosystem – the lush plains and forests of the Chobe river front attracting elephant and vast herds of buffalo; the rich grasslands and savannahs of the Savuti Marsh; the Linyanti Swamps, renowned for prowling predators and large herds of game; and the hot and dry hinterland of Nogatsaa and Tchinga, holding water well into the dry season and attracting a profusion of game between August and October. A high density of predators and the occurrence of many rare antelope species rounds off this spectacular game park.
 -Arrival at Chobe Marina Lodge. Take pleasure in riverside accommodation and the wildlife treasures of the Chobe National Park on your doorstep at this delightful lodge. The Chobe National Park has one of the greatest concentrations of game in Africa and supports one of the largest elephant populations in the world, making it a highly rewarding and exhilarating wildlife viewing destination to visit. Accommodation at the lodge is all river facing and is surrounded by lush gardens that themselves are home to an abundance of wildlife such as warthog, squirrel, mongoose, vervet monkeys and fruit bat. Of course with so much wildlife around, game drives rate as a top activity but the camp also offers scenic boat cruises down the Chobe River and sightseeing cruises to Sedudu Island. Fishing, spa treatments and a communal swimming pool are other options to enjoy while a Marimba band provides upbeat entertainment at night.

 -Transfer from Chobe
 -Arrival at Victoria Falls, one of the most famous landmarks in the world and visited by thousands of tourists every year, yet the town of the same name remains small and filled with plenty of old-world frontier charm. Victoria Falls town is bright and friendly and a great place to browse craft markets and collect souvenirs of your African travels as you take some time to absorb the atmosphere and pick up a greater sense of the African cultures and the rich history that have shaped the Victoria Falls over time. Wildlife lovers may need to look no further than right in front of them as animals are known to roam the streets with cheeky baboons hanging around in the trees and occasionally even an elephant or two strolling across the road to the nearby Zambezi River. (#)

D15: Victoria Falls
Falls: Zimbabwe Side • Mpisi Village • Flight: Falls by helicopter(o)
 -Breakfast
 -View one of the world’s natural wonders on a visit to the Zimbabwe side of the Victoria Falls. This enormous sheet of falling water was first discovered by David Livingstone in 1855, although it had been known to the local people for much longer than that. It is shared by two countries, Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south. Around two thirds of the falls are located on the Zimbabwe side and this country is also considered to have more classical views of the mains falls with footpaths leading you to breathtaking viewpoints such as Devils Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the very popular Rainbow Falls. The sights from here are considered some of the best on the planet while the sheer force of the tumbling water is a sensory treat as water plunges and tumbles, sending sprays of mist up into the skies.
 -Lunch: The Lookout Cafe
 -Depart from your hotel for a tour of Mpisi Village where you can try your hand at traditional chores. This rural village is situated approximately 13 km from Victoria Falls town and is the traditional home of the Matabele people. Here you will be able to observe the villagers going about their everyday lives as you watch agricultural fields being tended to and possibly give a helping hand with daily tasks. You will also be invited into the homes of the local villagers where you will have an opportunity to learn more about the Matabele culture and traditions with everything from farming to important ceremonies and child rearing up for discussion. For many this will be the first introduction to authentic African culture and the informal and informative tour offers a fun-filled and enlightening day before returning to the westernised world.
 -Marvel at the wonder of natural forces with a helicopter flight over the Victoria Falls. Your 12-minute adventure will get your heart racing and your eyes captivated on the scenes below as you take to the skies and begin your flight over the Zambezi River. This river is the fourth longest in Africa and surrounded by pristine wilderness that is especially beautiful to observe from above, with many islands and channels through which the crystal-clear water winds its way. The Batoka Gorge, lying just below the Victoria Falls, showcases stunning, deep chasms that cut into the earth before you arrive at the highlight of your trip, the falls themselves. This flight is often referred to as ‘the flight of angels’, and as you float through the misty spray and rainbows created by the thundering falls you will feel as if you are indeed in heaven.
