About the Safari

DAY 1:
Arrival at Hosea Kutako (Windhoek International) Airport, where you will be met by your guide. Subsequent transfer to the capital of Namibia for check-in at a guesthouse. After check-in at the accommodation establishment, you will be taken on a city tour. Windhoek is a city of many contrasts. Modern skyscrapers blend with historic buildings dating from the turn of the century. Several buildings from the German colonial era have been preserved and restored to fulfill useful functions in the community today. Some of the sights you will see on your tour are the Old Fort, the Parliament Building (also known as the “Ink Place”), the Lutheran Church, the Railway Station and many more.
Overnight stay at a guesthouse in Windhoek - Bed & breakfast.

DAY 4:
Early morning visit to Sossusvlei, (a clay pan surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world), which is filled only with water in years when exceptionally good rainfall is received. We visit the Sesriem Canyon. It is said that the canyon got its name during the time of the ox wagon, when a person had to use six harness straps to haul water from the bottom of the canyon.
Overnight stay at Desert Quiver Camp or similar on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.

DAY 5:
The route takes you north via the Kuiseb Canyon to Swakopmund. Highlights en route include a drive to the “Moon Landscape” and the ancient desert plant, “Welwitschia mirabilis”.

Wildlife

The wildlife in Namibia is myriad with many different ecosystems offering different game viewing. From the Desert adapted species to the savanna species, Namibia has everything you could want from a Safari and much, much more besides.

  • Oryx

    The desert-adapted Antelope species is found in many areas of this vast country and it is likely you will encounter one.

  • Spotted Hyena

    This common species can be seen throughout Namibia, especially in Etosha National Park.

  • Giraffe

    A regular sighting even in areas of stunted or little trees, this is a common animal even in the deserts.

  • Desert Elephants

    Namibia's Desert Elephants are elusive and can be difficult to find as they go from waterhole to waterhole.

  • Cheetah

    The Cheetah is very rare and not often seen but on the rare occasion it can be seen both in open and forested areas.

  • Leopard

    The Leopard is seen in most settings but still very elusive and they are particularly abundant in Etosha.

  • Lion

    Namibia has desert-adapted Lions, which are extremely difficult to see, as well as the usual plains Lions in Etosha.

  • Black Rhino

    Namibia is probably the best place to see free-roaming Rhino's with Black Rhino being the most common.
