Best of Namibia Safari Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Cederberg Region

We will leave Cape Town in the early morning to make a first stop for a picture-perfect view of Table Mountain from Bloubergstrand. With the early morning sun-light, this makes it for a brilliant photo opportunity. Afterwards, we continue to the Cederberg region which not only boasts some of the most beautiful mountain passes in the Cape, but is also the home of the Rooibos bush. A working Rooibos tea farm will be visited where Rooibos and Buchi is planted. On the tour, you will find out more about the health benefits of both indigenous plants of South Africa. In the evening, we will all enjoy a wonderful dinner where the group can get acquainted with one another while appreciating African hospitality.

Day 2: Namaqualand

The desert awaits us as we head into Namaqualand. As we head towards the Orange River, we make a short stop in Springbok to stock up on supplies. If you are travelling during the spring season (July – September) you are in luck as this region is known for its beautiful flowers during this time of the year. But no matter what time of the year you are joining us on our tour, the desert landscape always offers a unique backdrop to a day’s travel.

Day 3: Oranage River / Fish River Canyon

The Orange River was named after the Dutch Royal House but in recent times it has also been referred to its original name of Gariep. This simply means “river” in the indigenous Koi Khoi language. The river begins in the mountains of Lesotho and is the longest in South Africa. It offers a wonderful contrast between its waters and the desert landscapes along its path. The best way to experience the Orange River is by canoe and an option trip is available for all that want to join. Around mid-day, we will depart for our next destination.

Day 4: Fish River Canyon, Quiver Tree Forest and Giants Playground

Waking up early this morning, we drive to the rim of the Fish River Canyon so that everyone can experience the first sun-rays filtering through the canyon. After stretching your legs, enjoying a cup of coffee and a short walk along the rim of the canyon, we continue towards Keetmanshoop. In the afternoon, we will explore the Quiver Tree Forrest and The Giants Playground which are both names because of the way which the massive dolerite boulders have been placed on each other. This creates beautiful rock formations and a series of mazes.

Day 5: Namib-Naukluft National Park

Today is one of those long travelling days as the tour continues deeper into the desert. The final destination for the day are the dune fields that cover the western part of the area. Expect long dusty roads, with sparsely populated farmland that offers much information about the vastness of rural Namibia. Tonight, we will all camp on the doorstep of the dune fields and fall asleep under the stars and unique calls of the elusive Barking Gecko.

Day 6: Sossusvlei Dunes

Today we climb up one of the most popular dunes in Namibia: Dune 45. After a brisk walk, you will have the perfect viewing point to wonder about the changing colours of the desert. After a hearty breakfast, a 4×4 will transfer us into Sossusvlei where the group will spend time exploring the Deadvlei. Another night under the magnificent stars awaits us.

Day 7: Swakopmund

One last activity in the desert welcomes us in the morning as we join a local expert for an educational excursion. After a brief stop at the Tropic of Capricorn, we continue along the Atlantic coast-line as we make our way towards Swakopmund, where the first signs of civilisation is waiting for us. On the way, the tour makes a stop at Walvis Bay where you can catch a glimpse of the flamigo’s that feed in this beautiful area. Once we arrive in Swakopmund, many activities can be booked to continue the adventure.

Day 8 - 9: Spitzkoppe to Brandberg

Today we leave early to make our way to the massive granite formations that are known as Spitzkoppe that are as high as 700m above the desert plains. Rock art can be found everywhere which highlights the significance this region has played for the local San people who lived in this region thousands of years ago. Enjoy a walk with a local guide to explore these amazing formations.

Day 10: Brandberg White Lady

The Brandberg (Burning Mountain) is the highest mountain in Namibia and home to the famous White Lady – one of more than 45,000 rock paintings in this region. This morning, the group will embark on a 1 hour hike to visit the painting that is said to be 2,000 years old. Please ensure that you take along your hiking boots.

Day 11: Etosha National Park

Today is our first day in the Etosha National Park where you will be enjoying some of the most unique game viewing experiences in Africa. In the afternoon, the group will reach the park and begin on the first game drive towards the rest camp.

Day 12: Etosha National Park

The second day in the Etosha Park allows for a full day of exploration. Each and every safari is always different and there is no way to know what to expect. The suspense before a special sighting is made ensures that your attention is always on full alert.

Day 13: Windhoek

Today we head towards the capital of Namibia. Once the tour has arrived in Windhoek, we will all take a short walk through the city centre where you will get to take pictures of all the important landmarks. Here the tour comes to an end.
