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 exquisite seafood restaurants. Make sure to arrive a day early 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 go with a cable car up Table Mountain to enjoy a panoramic view of Cape Town from the top.

Cape Town to Trawal

Today you leave behind the delights of Cape Town and depart on the first leg of your journey. The first overnight stop will be on a small vineyard farm in the vicinity of the Cederberg Mountains. Grapes are produced for the local cellars and you have an opportunity to taste and buy some of the local wines in an optional wine tasting activity.

Trawal to Gariep River

Travel through the Northern Cape’s vast fields of wild flowers (in bloom between August and November) to the Namibian border. End the day with spectacular sunset views over the Gariep River. 

Gariep River to the Fish River Canyon

Enjoy a slow morning and sleep in or go on an optional canoe trip down the river. Later during the morning, we travel to the Fish River Canyon, the largest canyon in Africa. Explore the canyon rim on a short hike as the sun slips over the horizon to end your day of exploration.

Fish River Canyon to Sesriem

Today is an early departure and a long drive north to the Namib Desert. On the way to Sesriem, you pass the small towns of Bethanie and Helmeringhausen and farm settlements, but other than that it will mostly just be the wide-open Namibian landscape with spectacular scenery. Arriving in the late afternoon, you will visit the Sesriem Canyon. Admire the lofty red sand dunes in the distance that form a gateway into the Namib Desert, which means "vast place."

Sesriem to Naukluft Region

An early departure allows you to experience a beautiful desert sunrise over the dunes. Climb the majestic Dune 45 before continuing to the entrance of Sossusvlei, a seemingly endless expanse of sand dunes. Driving through the breathtakingly- beautiful landscape you experience the meaning of the name Namib – open space. See how narrow gorges lead up to high plateaus or end abruptly in steep rock faces as you proceed toward your campsite in the region known as the Naukluft.

Naukluft Regionto Swakopmund

Today we will travel to the coastal town of Swakopmund. There will be several photo-stop opportunities along the way as you cross the Tropic of Capricorn and drive through the surreal landscapes of the Kuiseb and Gaub passes.

Swakopmund

Swakopmund’s variety of attractions and activities cater for all tastes and styles. Take a walk along the beach and dip your toes in the icy Atlantic Ocean or visit the Kristal Gallery which boasts 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 the outdoors thrills you, you can enjoy optional activities like quad biking, sand boarding, 4x4 safaris, skydiving (weather permitting) and more.

Swakopmund to Brandberg (Uis Area) 

We travel northeast to Brandberg which is home to Königstein, at 2,573m above sea level the highest peak in Namibia. At Brandberg we offer a variety of guided self-drive tours with Polaris Utility Terrain Vehicles (UTV).  Enabling you to enjoy the spectacular scenery and wildlife of the Brandberg area as well as experience the thrill of driving one of these customised vehicles. Tours are led by professional local guides and backup includes satellite phone communications and vehicle tracking.
 
We suggest booking the 4-hour White Lady Ultimate Adventure – a self-drive of fun and adventure. On this trip, you visit the famous White Lady Bushmen Painting. Around the lodge area, there is a great chance of seeing the famous desert elephant, sometimes casually wandering into the lodge premises.

Brandberg to Etosha National Park 

Travel through the vast expanse of Northern Namibia to the Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s most loved wildlife sanctuaries. Head out for a game drive in search of elephant, antelope and lion around various watering holes. Etosha is home to more than 100 species of mammals including the endangered black rhino. It is a birdwatcher’s paradise with species such as the famous Kori Bustard, ostrich, several vultures, and eagle species and after heavy rains, you might even find water birds such as flamingos and pelicans.

Etosha National Park

Enjoy a full day’s game drive in your Adventure Overland Safari Vehicle. Gather memories of unique sightings 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 a wide and 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. Arrive in Windhoek, after lunch
