Meal(s) Included: No

Day 2 : KALAHARI DESERT

The Kalahari Desert, which boasts the largest sand dunes in the world, is where we travel after leaving Windhoek. It is a stirring description of the location that the bushmen refer to as the "Soul of the World." It is the only site where a wide variety of animals may live thanks to its deep red sand dunes, endless grass plains, dispersed bushes, and Acacia trees. Take advantage of the opportunity to see the flora and animals that have endured this dry climate for a long time.-

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 3 : FISH RIVER CONSERVATION AREA
Day 3 : FISH RIVER CONSERVATION AREA

We go south through broad gravel plains until we reach the unusual Quiver Tree woodlands. Huge dolerite rocks surround it, some of which are piled in an unusual pattern that makes it seem unlikely that they formed naturally, giving us wonderful photography opportunities. We may take a leisurely stroll to a neighboring granite hill once we get to our resort to watch the sunset while holding a cool beverage.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 4 : LUDERITZ
Day 4 : LUDERITZ

We start our day by taking in this breathtaking natural beauty from the rim of the Fish River Canyon, the second-largest canyon of its kind in the world, which is 550 meters deep. As we descend the Great Escarpment and arrive at the extraordinarily broad plains of the Namib Desert, the view changes to the undulating dunes of the Prohibited Diamond Area. We stop by Diaz' Cross before wrapping up the day with a tour of Lüderitz and checking into our hotel for the evening.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 5 : SOUTHERN NAMIB DESERT
Day 5 : SOUTHERN NAMIB DESERT

The abandoned town of Kolmanskop serves as a reminder of the excess and opulence of the early 1900s diamond rush this morning. It is now exposed to the fierce wind and scorching heat of the desert. Next, we go farther north through the pre-Namib to the Namib Desert, where we will stay. This is the entrance to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon, which both contain some of the largest sand dunes in the world towering above the beautiful desert plains.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 6 : SOUTHERN NAMIB DESERT
Day 6 : SOUTHERN NAMIB DESERT

This morning demands an early start. I had to depart at a reasonable hour this morning. As the sun rises, the sandstone mountains take on a variety of apricot, red, and orange hues, captivating our attention and presenting us with the opportunity to photograph this stunning view. We are seen mounting one of the beautiful dunes in Sossusvlei, where the largely dry Tsauchab River abruptly terminates among desert surroundings. Our next visit is the Sesriem Canyon, a major natural feature deep within the Namib Desert.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 7 : SWAKOPMUND
Day 7 : SWAKOPMUND

After breakfast, we went to the Vogelfederberg before traveling via the Gaub and Kuiseb Canyons to the charming seaside village of Swakopmund. We go down the Swakop River valley in the dimmer afternoon light to view the Welwitschia Plains and the aptly named Moonlandscape, taking in the breathtaking beauty as the sun sets. Once we go back to our lodging, we could have lunch at one of the city's many popular eateries.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 8 : SWAKOPMUND, CENTRAL NAMIB DESERT
Day 8 : SWAKOPMUND, CENTRAL NAMIB DESERT

This little seaside town is ideal for shopping, wandering along sandy beaches, relaxing at a quiet coffee shop, and taking walking tours. Kiteboarding, paragliding, quad riding, desert excursions, and dolphin cruises are just a few of the things available since this is Namibia's playground.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 9 : DAMARALAND
Day 9 : DAMARALAND

To get to Cape Cross, a fur seal sanctuary with up to 80,000 animals splashing around in the Atlantic, we go north through enormous lichen fields. To reach the Brandberg, Namibia's tallest peak, we go via Damaraland, one of Africa's least inhabited and geologically varied regions (2579m). The Desert Elephant, Black Rhino, and other antelope species call this arid, rocky region home.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 10 : ETOSHA AREA
Day 10 : ETOSHA AREA

We leave Windhoek and go across the Kalahari Desert, which has the world's biggest sand dunes. This place is referred to by the bushmen as the "Soul of the World," and it is a moving portrayal of it. It is the only location where a substantial number of species of well-adapted fauna may exist, thanks to its deep red sand dunes and infinite grass plains interspersed with Acacia trees and plants. Take advantage of the chance to view the plants and fauna that have survived in this arid climate for many years.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 11 : ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Day 11 : ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

The day is totally devoted to the numerous species found in Etosha National Park, which surrounds the Etosha Pan, a parched salt desert. The park is home to four of the Big Five - elephant, lion, leopard, and rhino - as well as a wide variety of birds and animals, including rare species like black-faced impala, roan, cheetah, and Namibia's smallest antelope, the Damara Dik-Dik.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 12 : ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Day 12 : ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

We go back to the park after breakfast and move this time from west to east. Along the walk, we could see different kinds of animals, and we eagerly anticipate any surprises at the several waterholes we stop at. We will arrive at our lodge in the late afternoon, where we will spend the rest of the evening unwinding and thinking back on the exciting events of the day.

Meal(s) Included: Breakfast, Dinner

Day 13 : ETOSHA/WINDHOEK
Day 13 : ETOSHA/WINDHOEK

AWe go south to Namibia's mining area after leaving Etosha. One of Namibia's two natural lakes, Lake Otjikoto, and the Tsumeb Museum, where we learn about the area's colonial and mining history and the numerous minerals that can be found there, are the two main reasons we visit this place. We pass through the Okahandja African artisan market on our trip to Windhoek. Transfer to your hotel.
