Guests will be picked up from their accommodation in Windhoek central and taken to the departure point for a pre-departure discussion.
Upon departure, we head north and stopover in Otjiwarongo for a simple lunch before heading to Etosha. We enter the park in the early afternoon and enjoy a game drive en-route to our accommodation for the night.
Arrival at Halali Camp will be just before sunset. Guests check into their en-suite rooms and relax while the guide prepares dinner. The camp has a floodlit waterhole where guests can go and enjoy the evening watching animals coming for a drink. (Lunch and dinner included)
Today is spent exploring the vast Etosha National Park. Spanning over 22 000 km sq the park is home to 4 of the Big 5 animals. Etosha is named after the huge salt pan central to the park. The Etosha Pan meaning “great white place” and covering 4500 km sq is one of our stops for the day. Here you can get out of the vehicle and take in the expanse of the pan.
During lunch guests can take a break in the camp pool or at the waterhole. The afternoon is spent driving back to the exit of the park and to the lodge for the night 2 km outside of the park.
On arrival at Etosha Village guests will check into their rooms and have a scrumptious dinner before an early night. (Breakfast, Lunch and dinner included)
Departing early, we head via Damaraland to Swakopmund. We meet the Herero women selling their crafts and take lunch in the shadow of the Brandberg.
The last section of the drive is along the famous Skeleton Coast. There is a small shipwreck where we will stop.
We arrive in Swakopmund mid-afternoon. Its highly recommended to explore this seaside town on foot. Your guide will happily advise on good restaurants where you can enjoy dinner. (Breakfast, Lunch included)
This morning there will be time for guests to partake in some of the activities that Swakopmund has become famous for. Choose between quad biking the Namib dunes, sandboarding in the desert, kayaking on the Walvis Bay lagoon with seals or sky diving. Alternately visit the local museum.
Departing Swakopmund around midday we head through the Kuiseb Pass and Naukluft to our destination near the entrance gate to the Sossusvlei.
We overnight in twin en-suite chalets. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
Today we explore Sossusvlei. We depart early to enter the park at sunrise. The drive to Sossusvlei is spectacular – on both sides of the roads the towering red dues line the way.
From the parking area, we jump on board a 4×4 vehicle to get into Sossusvlei. Here we explore the unique area on foot. We visit Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. Deadvlei is famous for the ancient camel thorn trees contrasting the white clay and red sand dunes.
Heading back to the lodge we will stop off at the famous Dune 45 where guests can climb the dune or just take in the spectacle.
This afternoon we will visit Sesriem Canyon close to the lodge. (Breakfast, Lunch and dinner included)
