safari cost · best season · activities · map of safari
Namibia is a rewarding experience. Venture into a world of changing
scenery, contrasting unspoilt
wilderness and numerous cultures with the cosmopolitan
atmosphere of Windhoek and Swakopmund. We explore Namibia's
attractions using a diverse itinerary, including the central
area with the Namib Desert (Sesriem and Naukluft) and the northern
area with the famous Etosha National Park and other regions
not normally visited by ordinary tourists. The Oryx &
Himba Safari is the perfect deluxe camping safari to explore
Windhoek, with its lingering heritage
of German architecture, activities and atmosphere is a city
which can be visited throughout the year. The day is spent
at leisure. We meet our guide at the reception of the Hotel
Safari (or similar) at +-18h00. Hotel or guesthouse on a bed
and breakfast basis. Dinner and lunch are not included.
2: WATERBERG PLATEAU PARK
Namibia is a land of striking contrasts,
and one of such contrasts is the Table Mountain of the Waterberg
Plateau Park abruptly rising hundreds of metres above the surrounding
3/4/5/6: ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
This park is one of the most important
reserves and game sanctuaries in Africa. The pan itself is a
vast shallow depression 139km by 50km. Thousands of wild animals
such as blue wildebeest, springbok, zebra, kudu, giraffe, cheetah,
leopard, lion, elephant, etc. are attracted to the area. The
birdlife is prolific with 326 recorded species. We relax around
the swimming pool and enjoy early morning and afternoon game
The Damaraland is a vast and rugged
terrain. Its mountain ranges are intercepted by wide gravel
plains which run into sandy, vegetated riverbeds and hot, dry
valleys. We may be fortunate enough to see the rare desert elephant
or the elusive black rhino. We enjoy the solitude and the remoteness
of our secluded bush camp.
DAY 9: TWYFELFONTEIN, ROCK ENGRAVINGS
Twyfelfontein "Fountain of Doubt"
has possibly the most spectacular collection of rock paintings
and engravings in Africa.
10: SEAL COLONY - CAPE CROSS - SWAKOPMUND
The large colony of Cape fur seals
(about 80.000) at Cape Cross is a very impressive sight. Swakopmund,
with its German colonial atmosphere is surrounded by the Namib
Desert and has many buildings and houses dating back to the
German colonial era. Accommodation in chalets. Excludes dinner
11: THE RARE WELWITSCHIAS - MOON VALLEY - NAMIB DESERT
The Welwitschia is an unusual pre-historic
plant, which is a dwarf tree flourishing on the moisture of
the Atlantic Coast. Its lifespan is estimated at more than 1.000
years. Our camp in the desert under the bright stars of the
Southern Hemisphere will create a lasting impression.
12/13/14: NAMIB DESERT - SESRIEM/ NAMIB NAUKLUFT PARK
Our journey takes us through the
Namib Desert, the oldest desert on earth. The gigantic 275m
high red and grey dunes are the highest in the world. Most of
the 200 species plants that occur here depend on the mist from
the Atlantic for survival. We continue on through the incredible
scenery of the Naukluft Mountains. Several hiking trails following
springs and rock pools allow us to visit this rugged area. The
park has a diverse flora and an abundance of perennial water,
a rich birdlife and a varied population of wild animals, particularly
mountain zebras, baboons, leopards and rock hyrax.
We arrive in Windhoek in the early
itinerary will depend on local conditions.
