Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Ride through Namib-Naukluft National Park, Visit ancient petroglyphs, Stroll through the traditional village of Mondesa, Visit the Cheetah Conservation Fund

  1. Day 1
    Windhoek
    Arrive at any time. Arrival transfer is included.
    Transport: You will be met at the airport and transferred to the hotel to start your adventure.
    Activity: The adventure begins tonight. Feel free to explore before your welcome meeting, but make sure you're back in time to meet the group. Check for the meeting time on the welcome note at the hotel. After introductions, your CEO will review the details of your tour. Please note that normal check-in times apply at our start hotels, but you can usually store your luggage for the day if you arrive early.
    Accommodation: Windhoek Country Club Resort (or similar)
  2. Day 2
    Windhoek/Sesriem
    Set off from the Namibian capital towards Sesriem, the gateway to jaw-dropping Namib-Naukluft National Park. Drive past red-hued desertscapes, stark camel thorn trees, and dramatic curved dunes while keeping an eye out for the astonishing creatures that call these arid lands home—the oryx, springbok, jackal, hyena, and more. Settle in to our lodge and relax poolside, watching a fiery crimson sunset over the desert.
    Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
    Accommodation: Sossusvlei Lodge (or similar)

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  3. Day 3
    Sesriem
    Embark on a thrilling excursion into one of Africa's largest national parks. Explore the Namib desert, the oldest desert in the world; and venture to the massive dunes at Sossusvlei and the white clay pan of Deadvlei. Capture dramatic images of dead camel thorn trees against a backdrop of orange dunes and a crisp blue sky. Then visit the Sesriem Canyon, a natural gorge carved out by the Tsauchab River over millions of years.
    Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
    Transport: Roads? Where this rough-and-ready vehicle's going, we don't need roads.
    Activity: This area is famous for its high, red sand dunes. This clay and salt pan is surrounded by the dunes, making it a spectacularly beautiful sight with a remote and isolated feel.
    Activity: Enjoy a short stop at Sesriem Canyon, a small canyon typical of the area. The Tsauchab River flows through the canyon every five to ten years, and this creates the nearby salt and clay pan of Sossusvlei.
    Accommodation: Sossusvlei Lodge (or similar)

    Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
  4. Day 4
    Sesriem/Swakopmund
    Continue by road through changing desert landscapes towards the coastal city of Swakopmund. Look out for roaming zebra, kudu, springbok, and oryx on the way, and take a break in the quirky town of Solitaire before heading into the countryside. Here, we meet a local for a 4x4 drive through the desert, learning about the survival strategies of bushmen who lived in this inhospitable area thousands of years ago. We also search for the smaller wildlife that has managed to survive here, such as snakes, geckos, spiders, and an array of insects.
    Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
    Activity: Hop into a 4x4 vehicle and set out into the desert. An expert guide will point out signs of animal life and emphasize survival in the harsh desert landscape for both humans and animals.

Then continue to our lodge on the Palmwag nature reserve in northwest Damaraland.
    Transport: Settle in and scan the scenery from the convenience of a private vehicle.
    Activity: Step back in time to see prehistoric rock engravings made during the early Stone Age. Their exact origin is uncertain, but these works depicting animals and hunters are probably the work of Bushmen or Nama artists estimated to have lived near Twyfelfontein at least 5,000 years ago. Marvel at the more than 2,500 rock carvings and paintings and understand why this is Namibia's first UNESCO World Heritage Site.
