Namibia is a land of contrasts and this scheduled 12-day camping safari is perfectly designed to take in nearly all of them. Starting in Windhoek and heading out on the Northern leg of our odyssey, our winding road takes us to visit the cheetah of Africat at Okonjima, the big game in the iconic Etosha National Park and includes the privilege of night-time viewing at the world-famous Okaukuejo waterhole. We meet and engage with the Himba Tribespeople and travel over mountain passes with exotic and beautiful views.
On the southern leg we spend time in the rugged and forbidding Skeleton Coast National Park, visit 100,000 seals at Cape Cross and take in a shipwreck on our way to the slightly bizarre holiday town of Swakopmund. Here we can shake out a little of the dust and enjoy a hotel bed, great restaurants and many exciting excursions.
We cross the Tropic of Capricorn on our way to visit the world’s highest sand dunes in the world’s oldest desert at Sesriem & Sossusvlei. We see the crumbling yet beautiful and historic architecture in Luderitz, and we learn about the desert diamonds and visit the eery diamond ghost town at Kolmanskop. The awe inspiring Fish River Canyon, the second largest canyon on planet earth awaits us and last but not least, we visit the unusual and ancient quiver trees and the even more ancient Giants Playground.
