Day 1 Arrive Windhoek, Namibia

Upon landing at Windhoek International Hosea Kutako Airoport, you are welcomed by a safari representative and transferred to your exclusive boutique hotel. The afternoon is yours to settle into your premier suite, explore some of Windhoek's city shops and rest from your flight. This evening you will meet your private safari guide for a briefing before dinner at the hotel or at one of the fine dining establishments in town. 

Day 2 Transfer to Ongava Game Reserve

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After breakfast we will set out for Andersson's at Ongava. Located on the 30,000ha private Ongava Game Reserve on the southern boundary of Etosha National Park, Ongava is an exceptional place from which to view Namibia's diverse wildlife. Time permitting, your guide will take you into the park for your first game drive. Alternatively, you might like to relax at camp, soaking in the peaceful scenery and observing any game that comes to drink from the camp's waterhole. 

Day 3 Etosha National Park

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Spend today on safari in Etosha National Park and Ongava Reserve in search of wildlife. With your guide you can decide to spend the entire day exploring the Park with lunch at a waterhole, or to split game drives in the early morning and late afternoon with a short break to spend by the pool at our safari camp. Etosha National Park covers 22,270 square kilometers in northwestern Namibia. Game viewing centers around the numerous springs and waterholes, and sightings often include elephant, lion, giraffe, blue wildebeest, eland, kudu, gemsbok (oryx), zebra, rhino, cheetah, leopard, hyena, honey badger and warthog, as well as the endemic black faced impala.

We return to the lodge at sunset, in time for an enjoyable dinner under the stars. 

Day 4 Transfer to Damaraland

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
We continue onwards today, heading west into the vast and majestic landscapes that define the unique Damaraland area. Damaraland is an unexpected refuge for desert-adapted wildlife, such as desert-adapted elephant, giraffe, springbock, rhino and even some predators. In Damaraland the wildlife roam large tracks of unfenced desert landscapes, and sightings can therefore be challenging at times. However this is all part of the adventure in Namibia! 

Arrive to camp in the mid to late afternoon. If time allows we may visit the Twyfelfontein rock engravings. 

Settle in for another peaceful evening on safari, listening to the sounds of wildlife and awe-inspiring nature that surrounds you. 

 

Day 5 Explore Damaraland

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Rise early for breakfast before setting out on a 4x4 excursion along the ephemeral Aba-Huab and Huab River valley. We spend the morning exploring this incredible region, searching for the elusive game that calls this desert landscape home.  

Return to camp for lunch. In the afternoon we have time to visit Twyfelfontein and other nearby attractions if you haven’t already done so, or take time to relax at camp for some well-deserved leisure time.  
 

Day 6 Fly to Sossusvlei

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Transfer this morning to the Twyfelfontein Airstrip. Here we will say goodbye to our guide and board our scheduled light aircraft flight to the Namib Desert (stopping en-route in Swakopmund to re-fuel).  The next two nights are spent in the middle of this mesmerizing desert, offering the unique opportunity to explore the massive red sand dunes of Sossusvlei. 

Our flight from Swakopmund flies along the Diamond Coast, where weather permitting we are treated to a bird's eye view over the salt pans, Sandwich Harbor, abandoned minding camps and dune sea. A true highlight is the sighting of the Eduard Bohlen German cargo ship that ran aground in 1909 - this preserved shipwreck is a must-see for avid photographers! 
 
Arrive at our Namib Desert lodge in the mid-afternoon. After settling in, you have the chance to take part in a shared afternoon activity or simply relax in the comforts of Hoodia Desert Lodge.

 

Day 7 Sossusvlei Sand Dunes

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
We awake early this morning for a magical excursion into the Namib Naukluft National Park. We enter the park gates at sunrise, capturing the dunes whilst the light is soft and the sun's shadows accentuate the dunes' towering shapes and curves. The Namib Naukluft National Park boasts some of the highest free-standing sand dunes in the world. 

Your lodge-based guide will provide insight on the formation of the great Namib Desert and its myriad of creates and plants that survive in this formidable environment. After a full morning of exploration we will adjourn for a picnic breakfast in the shade of a camel thorn tree. Return to the lodge in the early afternoon for lunch, stopping along the way to view the Sesriem Canyon. 

Enjoy the rest of the afternoon at your leisure. 

Day 8 Fly to Windhoek

Today we return to Windhoek on a shared flight from Damaraland. Arrive in Windhoek and settle into your hotel for one last evening in Namibia. The evening is yours to spend as you wish.

Day 10 Victoria Falls

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Today we have the opportunity to partake in variety of tours offered through Batonka Lodge. The lodge is also an ideal base from which to explore the mighty Victoria Falls. The "smoke that thunders" is located on the Zambezi River bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, and is considered the largest waterfall in the world due to its impressive width of 5,604 feet. Few words can describe the feeling of standing at the base of nature's sheer power - this is a site not to be missed!

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
