Itinerary

Day 1: A Windhoek Hideaway

Arrive at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport & collect your car. Drive to Olive Grove Guest House for 1 night on a bed & breakfast basis.

Set in a quiet corner of Windhoek, the relaxed and friendly Olive Grove Guest House makes the ideal start to your safari. There is secure parking for your car plus a pool, free Wi-Fi and even a small spa if you feel like unwinding with a massage. All rooms at Olive Grove are air-conditioned and have a tea and coffee station and mini bar as well as an en suite bathroom with shower and bath. Lunch and dinner can be enjoyed at Olive Grove (own account) or at a nearby restaurant.

Days 2 – 3: The Giants of Sossusvlei

Drive to the Namib Desert & Hoodia Desert Lodge, located near the entrance gate to the Sossusvlei dunes. Enjoy 2 nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.

Leaving Windhoek behind, you notice the red sand of the Namib Desert beginning to dominate the landscape. Your destination is Hoodia Desert Lodge, well-located for easy access to the giant dunes of Sossusvlei. It is a pre-dawn start but the lodge’s guided excursion to the dunes is highly recommended and it includes lunch on the dunes as well as a visit to nearby Sesriem Canyon. Hoodia Desert Lodge can also arrange other activities for you: a hot-air balloon or helicopter safari over Sossusvlei as well as horse trails and quad bike adventures in the desert.

Days 4 – 5: To the Atlantic Coast

Drive to the town of Swakopmund on Namibia’s Atlantic Ocean coastline. Check in at Namib Guesthouse for 2 nights on bed & breakfast basis.

Following the Namib Desert to the ocean, you arrive at the popular seaside town of Swakopmund. A fascinating blend of African and European cultures, laid-back Swakopmund is the perfect place to relax for a couple of days. Your accommodation is the centrally-located Namib Guesthouse, a 10-minute stroll from restaurants and shopping malls and complete with free Wi-Fi, secure parking, laundry service and plenty of in-room comforts. Swakopmund is Namibia’s adventure capital with activities ranging from camel-back safaris and sand boarding to marine tours and sky diving. Staff at the guesthouse will be happy to make bookings for you.

Days 6 – 7: Magical Damaraland

Turning inland, you drive to Namibia’s Damaraland region & check in at Camp Kipwe for 2 nights on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis.

A land dramatically carved by the elements, Damaraland is a beautiful destination. Home to rugged mountain ranges, echoing empty plains and astonishing night skies, it is also a place to search for Namibia’s unique desert elephant and mountain zebras, and while on a night drive, maybe some of Africa’s rare nocturnal creatures such as aardwolf, porcupine and honey badger. Expert guides from Camp Kipwe take you on drives and walks to experience it all, including an excursion to nearby Twyfelfontein – one of Africa’s most important rock art sites. Back at camp your suite blends artfully into the boulder-strewn landscape.

Days 8 – 10: The Haunted Skeleton Coast

Drive to Doro Nawas Airstrip where you leave vehicle & catch a charter flight to Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp for 3 nights on a full board basis.

Time to let someone else do the driving today: a scheduled charter flight takes you to Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, so named for the rusting shipwrecks that litter the wave-pounded coastline. Lying on the ephemeral Hoanib River, the Hoanib Skeleton Coast Camp offers modern stylish luxury in a fascinating environment that is home to more wildlife than you might think at first glance. Morning and afternoon game drives take you in search of elephants, lions and brown hyenas, and included in your stay is a full-day safari to the wild coastline itself, complete with shipwrecks, teeming seal colonies and ‘roaring dunes’.

Days 11 – 13: A Private Etosha Safari

Return by air to collect your car & then drive to Etosha National Park where you have 3 nights at Ongava Tented Camp on a full board basis.

Etosha National Park is home to some of Africa’s most important populations of black rhino and cheetah. There are large numbers of elephant, lion, leopard and familiar savannah animals such as giraffe and zebra as well as desert specialists like gemsbok and springbok. Your destination is Ongava Tented Camp, set in a private reserve adjoining Etosha giving you easy access to a game-rich area of Etosha plus exclusive wildlife sightings in the reserve. You also enjoy guided walks and spot-lit night drives – activities not permitted in Etosha. Accommodation is in the form of walk-in tented suites with verandas that overlook the sunset and flood-lit waterhole.

Day 14: Big Cats of the Waterberg

Drive to Okonjima Bush Camp, conveniently located halfway between Etosha & Windhoek & check in for 1 night on a dinner, bed & breakfast basis

Finish with a flourish at Okonjima Bush Camp: this small and intimate camp lies in the Waterberg region and has eight lovely suites on offer. But the camp is also a wildlife rehabilitation and research centre, dedicated especially to the preservation of Namibia’s big cats – lion, leopard and cheetah. You may have time to see the results of their research and maybe explore the area with a guide. Close-up encounters with big cats at the research centre means excellent photographic opportunities here and there are also two birding hides set over water as well as a night-time hide for a chance to see nocturnal creatures.

Day 15: The Journey Ends

Drive back to Windhoek International Airport to return your car & check in for your onward travel arrangements; the safari now comes to an end.

After breakfast at Okonjima Bush Camp you have a 2.5-hour journey to Windhoek where you make your way to Hosea Kutako International Airport. Here the safari comes to an end as you return the car and connect with your onward flight or accommodation arrangements.

Reviews

Professional, patient, efficient and responsive. Met all our travel needs and requirements spot on

Communication was excellent – I asked A LOT of questions and did a ton of research myself and Walter was extremely patient with me and very responsive. he was straight forward and extremely professional. Tour itself was excellent – an incredible experience and one never to be forgotten. Everything was spot on.

Neena
Professional, quick and top of the edge service!!!

From the very first contact we’re very happy about the respond time and quality of information from safari-online.com. Based on the received first tailor-made quote, which is a weblink with all the details about the flights, photos of the lodges etc. we knew that this is “our” partner for this trip. Our expectations were excelled!!!

Lukas (Germany)
It was a safari of a lifetime and exceeded all of our expectations!

Our mom grew up in Central and South Africa so we had visited the continent many times. My sister and I wanted to take our teens and husbands to Africa to experience the magic. We had a limited budget but big and specific expectations and by some miracle Walter was able to manage both.

Heather (USA)
Karina was absolutely instrumental to our safari success.

Our experience with Safari Online was excellent. After becoming very frustrated trying to search for a safari destination on our own, we turned to Karina for help and she was a lifesaver.  We had an amazing safari adventure at the lodge–the experience of a lifetime–and are so grateful for her help. We literally couldn’t have done it without her!

Chris (USA)

Best trip I have ever been on. Highly recommend.

Would highly recommend. Safari online asked questions when booking and were efficient and knew exactly what we were looking for in terms of accommodation and animals were wanted to see. Gave advice on a few little extras with no pressure, which we did and am very grateful which make trip even more exciting. Would definitely recommend booking with them.

Safari Online were extremely efficient and absolutely charming to work with.

Our 28-day itinerary took us to South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana. A magnificent and unforgettable adventure. Everything ran smoothly and efficiently from the flights, transfers, rides, connections, etc. Absolutely wonderful! Can’t thank them enough!

Ann and Mario (Canada)
Walter has always been an excellent communicator and has supported us fully

We have been to Africa for 24 of the last 27 years so know a bit about what is involved. Walter has arranged the details for the last couple of years, and has done a superb job. He is always quick to respond and comes up with answers immediately……..no evasive tactics, always head-on!
