Itinerary Overview

Day 1: Windhoek, Namibia
see details >

Arrival Airport: Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH)

Namibia is a land of geographical extremes that encompasses vast areas of inhospitable desert, towering mountain ranges, and unspoiled wilderness areas, home to elephants, rhinos, lions, giraffes, and a host of unique flora and fauna. To the west lies the Skeleton Coast, one of the most desolate shorelines in the world. In the extreme south, bordering South Africa, we find the dramatic, rocky mountain gorges of the Fish River Canyon; to the north by contrast, rich farmland alternates with sub-tropical forest and the mopane bush of the Etosha National Park.

On your first day in the country, you'll spend some time exploring Windhoek before settling down for dinner.

Accommodation: Campsite

Day 2: Etosha National Park, Namibia
see details >

After breakfast, you'll set forth on our journey northward through the Namib Desert, eventually coming to our campsite in Etosha National Park. Once you arrive at Etosha, you’ll enjoy delicious food while taking in the beauty of your surroundings at camp.

In the afternoon, you'll meet up with your guide and head out for a sunset game drive of Etosha National Park. Keep your eyes open for lions, as this is prime hunting time.

Accommodation: Campsite

Day 3: Etosha National Park, Namibia
see details >

Grab breakfast at camp before meeting up with your guide and heading out for a game drive. Keep your eyes open for cheetahs, as Namibia has the largest population in Africa. We'll return to camp for lunch, then allow free time for relaxing or for an add-on sunset game drive.

Accommodation: Campsite

Days 4-5: Skeleton Coast, Namibia
see details >

After breakfast each day, you’ll continue our journey along the Skeleton Coast, an area that's scattered with the wreckage of ships that got caught in the fog. In the afternoons, you'll have free time to continue exploring the coastline on your own. As the sun sets, you'll return to camp for dinner and stargazing.

Accommodation: Campsite

Day 6: Swakopmund, Namibia
see details >

After eating breakfast in camp, you'll continue onwards to Swakopmund. With its palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, and fine accommodation for all budgets, Swakopmund is Namibia’s most popular holiday destination, and its pleasant summer climate and decent beaches attract surfers, anglers and beach lovers from all over Southern Africa.

You'll stop at a famous coffee shop for apple pie, then enjoy the afternoon as you explore the coastal town or try your hand at adventure sports on the sand dunes just outside the city.

Accommodation: Campsite

Day 7: Sossusvlei, Namibia
see details >

Rise and shine! A pre-dawn start is essential this morning to catch the quiet splendor of a desert sunrise. There’ll be abundant landscape and wildlife photo opportunities in the morning breeze, with dawn’s soft light first illuminating the dunes from the crest down the back slope before blazing orange everywhere, creating a powerful contrasting scene across the whole desert. You’ll spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, climbing the famed Dune 45.

After lunch, you will have free time to explore the camp. You may also add on a trip to Sesriem Canyon. Another stunning sunset in the vibrant desert, followed by a night under the shining stars of the Southern Hemisphere, is the ideal way to finish off the day.

Accommodation: Campsite

Day 8: Sossusvlei, Namibia
see details >

After a delicious breakfast, you'll depart for your tour of Namib-Naukluft National Park and the towering Sossusvlei sand dunes. We’ll travel over the breathtaking Eros Mountains and along the scenic roads leading southeast into the desert. This journey’s highlights include the Naukluft Mountains, Central Plateau, Remhoogte Pass, and tiny settlement of Solitaire.

You’ll arrive at the staggering, fiery sand dunes of the Namib just as the afternoon sun reflects dancing colors on the distant mountains to the east. You will spend the afternoon with your guide visiting the Sossusvlei Dunes and Deadvlei Desert. In the evening, you’ll travel to your camp, allowing you to be at one with nature as you enjoy traditional food and marvel at the star-filled sky.

Accommodation: Campsite

Frequently Asked Questions

+ Can you help arrange my travel visas?

If you are an American traveler, you will not need a visa to visit Namibia. If you are a citizen of another country, please use VisaHQ to verify the visa requirements for your travel plans.

In either case, please ensure that your passport will be valid for at least six months following your return from Namibia.

+ What vaccinations should I get before my trip?

It's important that you receive the most accurate and up-to-date travel health information before departing for Europe. The only one qualified to provide you with this advice is your family physician or a specialist from a Travel Health clinic. We can provide some general guidance on what websites to check, but these websites are no substitute for a personal consultation with a qualified medical professional.

+ Do your tours include international airfare?

Travelers arrive from all over the world to begin our tours, and it is not possible to include international airfare in our prices. We would be happy to help you arrange flights. Just ask for an air quote when making your booking.

+ How should I pack for Namibia?

You should bring your own towel, flashlight, clothing (please always ensure that you have light-colored clothes, as well as long sleeves and long trousers), hats/sunscreen/sun protection, personal items and toiletries, shoes (both open-toed and close-toed) and socks, insect repellent, personal medical kit, and additional items like cameras and binoculars. You may refer to our official Namibia packing guide for additional advice.

+ I'm a solo traveler — will I be charged a single supplement?

We are happy to accommodate single travelers! Please note that we will add a single supplement charge to your trip cost. We look forward to putting together your dream trip!
