Arrive in Windhoek, Namibia’s capital and the social, economic, political and cultural centre of the country. You’ll be met and transferred from the airport to your hotel. Conveniently located close to town, your hotel is an oasis of lush gardens and a pool to relax beside after a day of travel. Tonight, settle in to your elegant room before a Welcome Reception and Dinner at a local restaurant serving delicious African-inspired cuisine.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Venture to Sesriem Canyon, one of the few places in the area that holds water all year round, and enjoy a picnic lunch among the sand dunes.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Admire the towering sand dunes in the region as you make your way through the unspoilt desert beauty of the Namib Desert towards Sossusvlei Lodge, your home for the next two nights.


Today’s adventure takes you to Sossusvlei, where you’ll enjoy a day of Insider Experiences. Tonight, reminisce about the day's adventures over dinner.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Discover Sossusvlei, a salt and clay pan found at the tail of the Tsauchab River in one of Africa’s largest conservation areas. Set off for the sand dunes this morning on a 4WD adventure, travelling through a riverbed of thick sand as you traverse the desert landscape to take in some of the world’s tallest sand dunes. The largest is known as Big Daddy and reaches approximately 325 metres.


Enjoy more time discovering Sossusvlei, as well as the haunting yet spectacular Deadvlei. Translating to ‘dead marsh’, this area is every photographer’s paradise; the contrast of colours from the dark, dead camel thorn trees growing out from the white pan floor makes for a striking image.

  • Dinner

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Dinner this evening is at renowned The Tug Restaurant, complete with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Savour fresh seafood, dry-aged meats and enticing desserts.


En route to Swakopmund, make a stop at Welwitschia Plains and discover the Welwitschia, an ancient plant unique to the plant kingdom found on the Namibian coat of arms. Continue to the Moon Landscape, otherwise known as 'Moon Valley'. Stop to admire the rocky granite valley which has been carved by the Swakop River over millions of years to produce the picturesque, moon-like landscape it is today. You’ll then make your way onwards to Swakopmund, Namibia’s adventure capital.

Stay: Two Nights, Swakopmund, Strand Hotel

Daily :

The day is yours to discover Swakopmund at your own pace. Perhaps take a leisurely stroll along the seaside promenade, or wander the city’s streets and admire the Germanic-inspired architecture, evidence of the city’s colonial past. Alternatively, you might like to enhance your experience and embark on a Scenic Namib Desert flight and take in bird’s-eye views of Swakopmund, the Namib Desert and more. Or, you might like to take a Walvis Bay cruise to glimpse playful dolphins, leather-back turtles or even majestic humpback whales.

Daily :

Your journey continues as you depart for Etosha National Park and enjoy a chance for wildlife viewing along the way. This evening, enjoy dinner at your lodge and some relaxation time.

INSIDER EXPERIENCE

Visit Omapaha Himba Village and take in the incredible chance to meet Namibia’s semi-nomadic group. Learn about their unique way of life and ancient culture that has withstood time.


Etosha National Park is home to a salt pan so large, the vast, white expanse can be seen from space. Despite this, wildlife is abundant. On your game drive today, animal sightings are almost guaranteed around the park’s waterholes. Look out for elephants, black rhinos, leopards, lions and giraffes that call the park home. After heavy rain, the salt pan also attracts flocks of brightly-coloured flamingos. Later enjoy your Insider Experience. This evening perhaps you may like to embark on an exciting night safari to spot rare wildlife – additional expense.
