Windhoek – Etosha National Park
We will collect you from your accommodation in Windhoek on the morning of
departure. Pick up time will be between 08:00 & 08:30.
We will travel north, passing through farmland and stopping at small towns
along the way, we aim to arrive at Etosha National Park in the middle
afternoon. We game drive our way through the park, stopping at waterholes
along the way, looking for some of Etosha’s big-game out for a drink. We
will arrive at Namutoni Camp at about sunset when the park gates close for
the night. We make camp and there is time to relax before dinner is served.
After your evening meal there are still more chances to see Etosha's big
game at Namutoni's floodlit waterhole. Situated on the boundary of the
Namutoni and easily reachable on foot, elephants are regular visitors here
and there is a good chance of seeing other species of game as well.
Accommodation: Namutoni Rest Camp (Lunch & Dinner)
Etosha National Park
A full day's game driving. We leave early to enjoy the cool morning air as
we game drive our way through Etosha to Halali camp, situated in the middle
of the park. Along the way we visit several waterholes and are afforded
splendid views of the massive Etosha Pan. The game viewing is usually
excellent and we have the chance to tick off a few new species that are not
normally seen on the Namutoni side of the park. We stop at Halali for a rest
and a leisurely lunch. There is time to visit the Halali waterhole and to
make use of the swimming pool and bar facilities before continuing on our
way and game driving down to Okaukuejo. Okaukuejo is famous for its
waterhole, which has been described as one of the "best game viewing
opportunities in Southern Africa". Situated on the doorstep of our camp,
black rhino, elephant, lion and numerous species of antelope are usually
Accommodation: Okaukuejo Rest Camp (Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner)
We have time for a short, final game drive this morning before leaving
Etosha and beginning our journey south. We are travelling on the main road,
passing through towns and rural areas and we will make time to make a stop
in the small town of Okahandja. Okahandja is the home of Namibia’s largest
wood carving market. The stalls operated on a local co-operative basis and
are one of the best places to shop for truly Namibian souvenirs. We are due
back into the city around 16:00 and you will be dropped off at your
accommodation on our return. (Breakfast & Lunch)
