On this 10-day Windhoek to Windhoek tour starts by driving through beautiful and dramatic landscape alllowing you to explore and experience the sunrise over the desert dunes and see African wildlife roam the plains of Etosha. Visit the Bushman rock art at Twyfelfontein and watch thousands of Cape Fur Seals at Cape Cross.
You will be met by your guide on arrival and transferred to your accommodation in Windhoek. If time allows your guide can take you on a short city tour.
Spend the day exploring the classic desert scenery of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert. Dunes, canyons, vast gravel plains and mountains ranges are some of the striking scenery that you can expect.
Walk to Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees scattered around, contrasting with a backdrop of huge orange-red dunes that make for superb photographic opportunities
Visiting Sesriem Canyon which is invisible from even a short distance away. At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down 30 to 40m, are pools that become replenished after good rains. Viewing lots of caves and strange rock formations which have been carved out by the river.
Spitzkoppe has also been a long time refuge for the San, better known as Bushmen. There is quite a bit of rock art here, as well as wildlife. Enjoy hiking to the Bushman’s paradise where one can see rock art as well as how these people lived. The rock formations are impressive, as is the view over the landscape surrounding the Spitzkoppe.
Drivng through the gradual change from mountains and dunes to rolling grass-covered hills with scattered acacia trees. Swakopmund is a quaint resort town by the sea with an obvious German heritage at odds with its bleak surrounds
Etosha Village is a perfect destination for nature lovers and delivers the perfect safari style experience in a private and protected reserve directly adjacent to the Etosha National Park
Etosha National Park is unique. Its waterhole culture forces the plains game to drink during the middle of the day when predators are most lethargic; thus it’s not uncommon to have a collage of several different species in the same frame.
