14 days / 13 nights


Explore the bare plains of the Namib Desert, the apricot coloured dunes of Sossusvlei, the romantic coastal town of Swakopmund nestled between the Ocean and the Desert, the rough terrain of Damaraland and the abundant wildlife in the world renowned Etosha National Park, as well as insights into the work of the AfriCat Foundation whilst being accommodated in personal, family-owned and run lodges.

Arrival at Hosea Kutako (Windhoek International) airport, where you will receive your rental vehicle. Once you have sorted out all the formalities for your vehicle, drive to Windhoek, Namibia’s capital. After check-in at the accommodation establishment, you can explore the city of Windhoek. 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 fulfil useful functions in the community today.

Early morning rise for a visit to the Sossusvlei dunes. The road from Sesriem to the 2x4 car park (4 kilometres from the vlei) is tarred but is in poor condition and is pot-holed. Because the dunes close in and the road becomes a sandy track near the vlei itself, if you do not have your own 4x4 you will have to either walk the final stretch from the 2x4 parking area to the vlei or use the 4x4 transfer service. The second attraction here is the Sesriem Canyon.
