Day1: Okaukuejo, Etosha National Park

We will be collected from our guesthouse/hotels as 07:15 and brought to Chameleon Backpackers Lodge for the pre-departure talk and to meet the rest of the group. After the departure from Windhoek, we stop briefly at Otjiwarongo to gather some last-minute supplies before continuing on to Etosha with a light lunch pack whilst “on the move”. We enjoy an afternoon game drive through the park visiting waterholes looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino and many different species of antelope arriving at our camp just before sunset. We set up camp and whilst dinner is cooking, we have the chance to visit the floodlit waterhole. Dinner is prepared by our guide over an open fire and an early night is recommended. 


Meals: Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Camping at Okaukuejo

Day2: Okaukuejo, Etosha National Park

We start our first game drive at sunrise to catch the predators while they are still active, visiting many waterholes, making our way across the park where we enjoy breakfast at one of the (fenced) picnic spots within the park. We then continue our journey arriving at the Etosha Pan, a chance to get out of the vehicle, stretch legs and enjoy the vast expanse of the pan and take some awesome photos. After our visit to the pan, we head through to Halali, the central camp where we can take a dip in the pool, visit the Moringa waterhole and enjoy some lunch. After lunch we begin our final game drive across the park, back to Okaukuejo calling into some well-known waterholes and returning to camp by sunset. Our last night camping in Etosha, and our last chance to enjoy the waterhole so a post dinner visit is highlight recommended.

Accommodation: Camping at Okaukuejo

Day3: Swakopmund

We enjoy an early morning breakfast and departure from Etosha is no later than 07h00. The route today takes us into the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Damaraland. We have the chance to meet the wonderful Herero, Himba & Damara ladies who sell their handmade arts and crafts to support their rural families. A light roadside lunch is served en-route in the shadow of Namibia’s tallest mountain, the Brandberg, and we can interact with some of the colourful local characters who live in this harsh environment. On the drive down the Skeleton Coast we explore the remains of a small shipwreck. We arrive in SWAKOPMUND late-afternoon where you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
