Itinerary

Cape Town

Explore the cosmopolitan city of Cape Town during the day and meet your group and your Tour Leader in the evening at 18.00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Cape Town offers an unbelievable variety of experiences, tastes, and sightseeing. Try a variety of exotic tastes, like some of the delicious Cape Malay curries, the famous local dish Bobotie, or the freshest seafood at one of the exquisite seafood restaurants at the V&A Waterfront. Make sure to arrive a day earlier to go to the world-famous Robben Island where former President Nelson Mandela spent 18 of his 27 years in prison, visit Cape Point or propel Table Mountain with a cable car up to enjoy a panoramic view of Cape Town from the top.

Cape Town to Springbok

Depart Cape Town early on your way to Springbok in the heart of Namaqualand. Springbok is set in a narrow valley bisecting the granite domes of the Klein Koperberge. This area is referred to as ‘The Garden of the Gods’ and is prominent for the wondrous display of spring flowers that explode into bloom every August and September.

Springbok to Fish River Canyon

Travel onwards to Fish River Canyon and take in the sights. The canyon is the second largest in the world, being surpassed by the famous Grand Canyon in Colorado. With a length of 180 Kms approx. stretching south from Seeheim down to the Orange River, forming the border between Namibia and South Africa.

Fish River Canyon to Helmeringhausen

The adventure continues today to Helmeringhausen, a settlement made up of little more than a homestead, hotel, and petrol station. Located in the southern part of Namibia, between Fish River Canyon and Sesriem. On arrival you can relax and take in the tranquillity surrounding you.

Helmeringhausen to Sesriem

Sesriem is a small settlement found in the Namib Desert. The name Sesriem means “six belts’ and was named by the Dorsland Trekkers, a group of Afrikaans-speaking settlers. It is said that they had to tie together 6 belts (made of oryx hide) to reach buckets down into the Sesriem Canyon to scoop up water. The Sesriem Canyon is a natural canyon carved in the sedimentary rock.

Sesriem

An early departure will give you the opportunity to climb the majestic Dune 45 during the cooler time of the day. Dune 45 was named for its proximity to Sesriem gate before continuing to the entrance of Sossusvlei, a seemingly endless expanse of sand dunes. Sand that was carried to the west coast by the Orange River is blown back again inland by winds and formed the dunes of the Namib Desert. The Namib, a minimum of 55 million years old, is regarded as the oldest desert in the world. The sand here is red in colour due to the prominent levels of iron oxide. These dunes are known as star dunes, created by winds blowing from all directions and is also known as the highest sand dunes in the world. In the afternoon, you will visit the Sesriem Canyon, a miniature canyon by world standards but beautiful to walk around in and appreciate the distinctive sedimentary rocks and conglomerate that line the canyon walls.

Sesriem to Swakopmund

Continue to Swakopmund with its cooler Atlantic sea air, cultural experiences, and options for some extreme adventures such as quad biking, sand boarding, 4×4 safaris, skydiving (weather permitting) and more. The only meal provided today is breakfast as Swakopmund has plenty of wonderful places to eat local cuisine. Swakopmund offers a variety of bakeries and cafes with a selection of reasonably priced meals.

Swakopmund

Swakopmund’s wide variety of things to see and do caters for a wide scope of tastes and styles. Take a walk along the beach and dip your toes in the icy Atlantic Ocean or visit the Krystal Galerie boasting with the largest Quartz Crystal Cluster on display in the World, weighing in at 14 100 kilogrammes. Browse the many excellent bookshops and curio shops and spoil yourself with a unique gift from the area. If adrenalin and outdoors is your thing then you can enjoy various optional activities (weather permitting).

Swakopmund to Outjo

Depart for Outjo, leading to the Etosha National Park. This quaint town was founded by German colonial Schutztruppe. This will be your stay overnight before heading into the Etosha National Park the following day.

Outjo to Etosha National Park

Depart after breakfast for Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s best-loved wildlife sanctuaries. We visit a Himba settlement prior to arriving in Etosha. Head out for a game drive in search of elephant, the unique black-faced impala, zebra, endangered black rhino, or any of the more than 100 mammal species the park is home to. In the rainy season, the salt pans turn into shallow lakes with pelicans, flamingos and other bird species flocking to this temporary water haven. Animals often cluster around the watering holes close to the campsites and this offers you the unique opportunity to sit and wait for the animals to come to you. These fenced watering holes have seating areas and are perfectly safe. Floodlights gives you the opportunity to sit at the waterhole and enjoy the interaction between different species of animals.

Etosha National Park

Enjoy a full day’s game drive in our Premium Overland Safari Vehicle. Gather memories of unique sights that you will not likely experience again. Watch how ghostly grey-white elephants bathe themselves in the white dust of the area or zoom in on the magnificent sight of giraffes etched against the wide-open horizon. Fall asleep with the haunting calls of hyena or a lion’s roar in the distance.

Etosha National Park to Windhoek

Travel to Windhoek, Namibia’s capital. On arrival in Windhoek, after lunch this will be our last goodbye, an end of another incredible tour.

Book a n additional night or two in Windhoek to make the most of your stay. This capital town has loads of interesting things to offer. One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall. Here , you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel the bodies contain. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance in the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.
