Day 1 – 3
We begin our tour with a fascinating tour of Cape Town’s townships and a traditional lunch before travelling north through the citrus area of the Western Cape to semi-desert of Namaqualand and our camp on the banks of the Gariep (Orange) River on the Namibia side. Our next stop is at the dramatic Fish River Canyon – in some places 500m deep and over 160km long, this almost rivals the Grand Canyon for its breath-taking views.
Day 4 – 7
Continuing north, travelling through some very barren but extremely scenic areas, we arrive at the Namib Naukluft Park. The Namib is the world’s oldest desert and home to the world’s highest sand dunes (up to 300m). We climb to the top of one of the dunes for a panoramic view of the sunrise over the vast sea of sand. We take 4x4 safari vehicle deeper into the desert for spectacular views over Deadsvlei before continuing to our desert camp just outside of the small town named Solitaire. The next day we stop at the Tropic Of Capricorn sign for a photo opportunity before turning to the coastal town of Swakopmund - a resort town sandwiched between the desert and the ocean. Relax in one of the town’s many cafes or enjoy one of the thrilling adventure sports on offer, from deep-sea fishing to skydiving and sand-boarding!
Day 8 – 11
We turn inland and travel into Damaraland to the eerie and spectacular Spitzkoppe before stopping at Etosha National Park, a reserve of over 20,000 sq. km surrounding a central salt pan, which features 114 mammal and 340 bird species. We take morning and afternoon game drives and camp for two nights near floodlit waterholes for some exciting night viewing. We continue to Windhoek, Namibia’s pleasant capital city, where our tour ends.
