Day TRAVEL PROGRAM & SERVICES
1

Overnight: Lodge in the Kalahari
(Overnight | F | A & sundowner drive)

Morning arrival in Windhoek, at Hosea Kutako Airport. Pick-up by your local German-speaking tour guide. The journey can start immediately with the drive into the Kalahari Desert.

Behind the Auas Mountains, the vastness of the country opens up like a picture book. On the way, you will discover gigantic sociable weavers' nests in ancient camel thorn acacias.
As we approach the lodge, endless linear dunes stretch across the limestone soil of the Kalahari. Oryx, springbok and smaller steenbok make wonderful animal motifs in the red dune sand. The Kalahari (also known as the Kgalagadi) is a thorn bush savannah, sometimes also a dry savannah, but is occasionally referred to as a desert due to the predominance of sand.
Once you arrive at the lodge, you have some time to relax. In the afternoon, guided panoramic drive in the red Kalahari dunes with sundowner. The drive is carried out in an open and comfortable off-road vehicle with a lot of passion and without any hectic pace. It is a tour to get to know the Kalahari with unforgettable viewpoints on the red dune ridges (duration approx. 2.5 hours)
Optional: Explore the Kalahari on foot and on your own. A map with hiking trails is available at reception.

2 Overnight: Lodge in the Kalahari
(Overnight | F | A & Bushman activity)

Before breakfast, you will walk to a Bushman village. There you will learn about the way of life and some of the wisdom of this indigenous people.
The rest of the day is at leisure and you can relax in the picturesque Kalahari Desert or take part in another optional activity. We suggest a guided tour through the savannah with a visit to a cheetah enclosure, where your guide will tell you a lot about these special big cats.
3 Overnight: Lodge at Fish River Canyon
(Overnight | F | A)

After a hearty breakfast, continue south through contrasting landscapes to the Fish River Canyon.
Looking out over this harsh and unforgiving landscape, it is hard to imagine that you are standing at the foot of an ancient lake. True to Namibia, this is a place of contrast and diversity, with the history of the earth clearly visible in the beautiful rock formations.
Not far from the vast canyon landscape of the Fish River, lies today's accommodation.
4 Overnight: Lodge at the Fish River Canyon
(Overnight | F | A & canyon drive)

Today you have the opportunity to visit the canyon on a guided tour
At 650 kilometers, it is the longest river in Namibia. And in the Naukluft Mountains it set off a very, very long time ago in search of the Orange River in the south of the country. But mountains stood in its way and so, in 120 million years of painstaking work, it created the largest canyon in Africa: the Fish River Canyon, a gigantic labyrinth in which temperatures of 50 degrees are nothing special.
(duration: about 3 hours).
5 Overnight stay - Lodge near Aus
(Overnight | F | A)

We penetrate further into the Namib Desert and spend the night near Aus. Admittedly, an excursion to the Grand Duke Friedrich Mountain, the Kempinskiberg or the 2,484-metre-high Moltkeblick sounds very unusual. But you are still in Namibia.
And the scene of history, where your next accommodation is located at 1,400 meters, is now called Aus-Berge. A place where everyone can come to rest. Silence, endless expanses, a fantastic view of the Aus Mountains and widescreen sunsets are the program for a pleasurable deceleration.
6 Overnight - Lodge at Aus
(Overnight | F | A & Lüderitz tour with Kolmanskop visit)

After breakfast, drive to Lüderitz with a visit to Kolmanskop. The first diamond was found here by chance in 1908. The resulting boom led to the rapid growth of this settlement on the northern border of the restricted diamond area, which was initially only intended as a diamond prospecting camp. The wealth of the inhabitants, based on diamonds, gave rise to Kolmanskop. Over the decades, the desert reclaimed what man had wrested from it. The houses deteriorated visibly and sand piled up meters high in the ruins. Some of the interior furnishings were destroyed or taken away. Kolmanskop finally became a ghost town.
Continue to the small harbor town of Lüderitz. Just 20,000 people live here. At first glance, the town presents an extremely bizarre sight. On one side the sea, on the other the desert and in the middle a small town built on the bare rock. The town's landmark is the rock church, which was built on the highest point of the rock in 1911.
On the way back to Aus, you might spot the wild horses at the Garub waterhole.
7 Overnight stay: Lodge near Sossusvlei
(Ü | F | A)
Today you drive through a geologically beautiful area into the southern Namib Desert. The rugged Tiras Mountains rise like a chain of islands from the endless expanses of red dunes and yellow grasslands. In the afternoon we arrive at our accommodation, which is situated very close to the Sesriem Park.
8 Overnight: Lodge near Sossusvlei
(Overnight | F | A with visit to Sossusvlei Dead Vlei & Sesriem Canyon)

At sunrise, we drive to Sesriem Park, because a dune landscape in the morning light offers an unforgettable landscape. For many years, the sporadically flowing water of the Tsauchab dry river has been fighting its way through the ever-growing dune landscape of the Namib Desert. However, it will never reach the sea, but seeps into a natural dune dam. Sossusvlei is surrounded by the highest dunes in the world, which suck the last bit of strength out of your legs as you climb them. Once you reach the top, you are richly rewarded with a fantastic view. Dune 45 is the most popular dune to climb.
9 Overnight: Hotel in Swakopmund
(Ü | F)

After breakfast, drive to Swakopmund via Solitaire and Walvis Bay. Soltaire itself consists only of a petrol station, a store, a chapel and a bakery with an adjoining café. A lodge and a campsite complete Solitaire. The first thing visitors notice on reaching Solitaire are the many car wrecks picturesquely draped along the roadsides.
As you drive on to the coastal village, the gravel plains of the Namib spread out before you, with a mountain here and there on the shimmering horizon. The long, straight gravel roads are occasionally adorned with a small plume of dust. You are surrounded by breathtaking expanses and the most beautiful landscapes of the desert. You drive through granite sculpture landscapes, ancient erosion valleys and cross the occasional dry river. Arrival in Swakopmund at midday. Afternoon city tour.
Optional activities: quad biking, camel riding, visit to the museum, aquarium, crystal gallery, riding safari, flight over the Skeleton Coast or Sossusvlei.
10 Overnight: Hotel in Swakopmund
(Overnight | F, choice of either a desert tour or catamaran boat trip)

This morning you will embark on a catamaran boat trip or a desert tour.
Catamaran trip: Between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund, on the rugged coast of the Atlantic Ocean, you will experience the unique nature and wildlife of the Walvis Bay lagoon on board a spacious and comfortable catamaran. The four-hour trip takes you from the industrial harbor across the Walvis Bay oyster beds out to Pelican Point, home to a large colony of fur seals. The tour offers many highlights. Among other things, pelicans are hand-fed in flight. You will learn many interesting things about these animals and with a bit of luck, depending on the season, you may also see whales, leatherback turtles or moonfish (mola-molas). Shortly before the end of the tour - and this is the culinary highlight - fresh oysters and champagne are served as well as snacks and cool drinks.
Desert Tour: also known as the Living Desert Tour, is a unique experience in four-wheel drive vehicles that aims to show visitors the impressive beauty of the Namib Desert and demonstrate life in the desert. The coastal dune belt, which may seem barren and lifeless to some, is home to a fascinating variety of small animals that have adapted to the desert. They survive thanks to the fog that regularly rolls in from the cold Atlantic Ocean.
Come and admire the "dancing white lady" (Carparachne aureoflava), a spider that spins its wheel down the dunes at 44 revolutions per second to escape an enemy. Marvel at the transparent desert gecko (Pachydactylus rangei) with toe fins that fulfill the function of snowshoes. Learn about the different beetles and insects and how they survive in the desert. Follow the tracks of the legless lizard (Fitsimmon's Burrowing Skink), watch Anchieta's desert lizards (Meroles anchieta) diving into the sand and dancing on the glowing sand, the side-swiping otter (Peringuey otter), desert chameleons and countless other awe-inspiring creatures. Familiarize yourself with the geological structures of the desert and enjoy the endless beauty of the landscape during a drive through the dunes. A unique opportunity to experience the desert up close.
The rest of the day is at your leisure and you can explore the town of Swakopmund on foot.
11 Overnight: Lodge in the Twyfelfontein area
(Ü | F | A)

Continue north on the salt road towards Henties Bay, and on via Uis to the vicinity of Twyfelfontein.
Both regions in the northwest are characterized by lonely expanses and barren desert landscapes, which are repeatedly interrupted by green oases and are home to the famous desert elephants.
In the late afternoon you reach the Twyfelfontein area. Damaraland offers a wealth of geological and archaeological highlights. Named after the Damara people, the area is home to Namibia's highest peak, the Brandberg, and Twyfelfontein, one of the most important rock engravings and paintings of the San, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
12 Overnight: Lodge in the Twyfelfontein area
(Overnight | F | A & Twyfelfontein Rock Engravings Tour)

Optional guided drive in search of the desert-adapted elephants in the morning.
In the afternoon, visit the Twyfelfontein area. The Twyfelfontein area is famous for some of the best Bushman drawings and rock engravings in Southern Africa. Interesting rock formations and the remains of prehistoric volcanic activity can be found in this area.
13 Overnight: Camp in Etosha National Park
(Overnight | F | A)

After breakfast, we head north-east into the world-famous Etosha National Park. The entrance to the park is through the Anderson Gate. Right from the entrance you have the opportunity to spot big game in the wild.
14 Overnight: Camp in Etosha National Park
(Ü | F | A )

Full-day game drive in Etosha Park. The Etosha National Park has a biodiversity that is hard to beat. A variety of animals gather at the waterholes, which can lead to a spectacular experience. Every single waterhole has a unique character. For example, the Okondeka waterhole is one of the best for lion spotting. The predator can often be spotted here with prey. The waterhole is a natural spring and is located a little north of Okaukuejo right on the western edge of the pan.
15 Overnight: Hotel in Windhoek
(Ü | F | A)

Today we return to the starting point of your tour in Windhoek. We arrive at our hotel in Windhoek in the afternoon.
16 Return flight to Germany.
The day is at leisure. Your tour guide will take you on a city tour today and you will have the opportunity to pick up a souvenir you haven't found yet. Suitable shops are Bushmen Art, Rogel Souvenirs, Ernst Holz and the Craft Center. In the late afternoon you will be transferred to the airport.
