14 Day Namibia Highlights

Highlights of this 14 day self drive lodging tour include the majestic dunes of Sossusvlei, the quaint town of Swakopmund with many activity options, the world heritage site of Twyfelfontein and surrounds, the game-rich Hobatere concession, western and central Etosha National Park, the colour-rich Waterberg Plateau and the Africat Foundation at Okonjima Private Game Reserve. A great overview of what Namibia has to offer at a relaxed pace!

DAY 1

Arrival in Windhoek

You will be met at Hosea Kutako Airport by the vehicle hire company and transferred to their offices in Windhoek for the vehicle handover. After booking into your accommodation, you can relax at the pool or enjoy a visit to the city centre. Guided city tours, bicycle tours and cultural tours are all available on request. Dinner can be booked at the accommodation (if available) or the reception can assist with booking one of the many great local restaurants. Read more

Onward to Sesriem

Depart from Windhoek after breakfast and travel along scenic roads and passes to Sesriem just outside the Namib Naukluft National Park and gateway to some of the highest sand dunes in the world.

We recommend an early departure to catch the spectacular dawn lighting at Dune 45. Then you continue deeper into the Namib Naukluft Park to explore Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. And if you are feeling adventurous, try climbing the immense dunes - no easy feat!

DAY 4

Pro-Namib to Swakopmund

Your journey continues north with a must stop at Solitaire for a refuel - and of course, a taste of the famous apple pie! Then cross the the Gaub and Kuiseb Passes and continue via Ganab and Tinkas through spectacular scenery to the C28 (you will need to get a permit at Sesriem before departure). If time permits, you can take a small detour to admire the ancient Welwitschia plants and Moon Landscape before continuing on to the quaint coastal town of Swakopmund. Check into your accommodation and then enjoy a dinner at one of the many great restaurants in town. Read more

Swakopmund, 2 nights
DAY 5

Activity and Sightseeing

We highly recommend the morning 4 - 4.5 hour seal and dolphin boat or catamaran cruise. This is an unforgettable experience on excellent boats/catamarans and can also be enjoyed in combination with a 4x4 excursion to Sandwich Harbour. Another excellent morning activity is the “Living Desert Tour” which explores the “Little 5” in the dunes just south of Swakopmund. The tour lasts about 4.5 – 5 hours. Other great activities, depending on your interests, are quadbiking, sandboarding tandem skydiving, cultural tours, and more. For the afternoon we suggest a leisurely stroll through town and perhaps some souvenir shopping. Read more
