Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival in Windhoek 

We will be picked up at the airport and driven to Windhoek. The hotel offers an outdoor pool and spa area. There are several restaurants on the premises with outdoor and indoor seating areas, and the sky bar offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Klein Windhoek district. The afternoon is at leisure, possibly for a city tour or depending on arrival we can take a stroll through the city centre (optional).

Day 2: Flight to AfriCat Foundation 

Transfer to Eros Airport and flight to Okonjima, home of the AfriCat Foundation. Here, projects for the care and reintroduction of injured or previously captive animals are carried out and explained, as well as research projects on the African big cats, but also on the African Wild Dogs.
In the afternoon on the Leopard Tracking Activity, we drive out into the Okonjima Nature Reserve and get the opportunity to experience these magnificent predators up close - pure goose bumps! The Okonjima Bush Camp is situated in a 22'000 ha private nature reserve in the middle of the Omboroko Mountains.

Day 3: Okonjima

In the Morning we will go on another game drive. We learn and understand more about the fauna and flora of the private Nature Reserve. On this game drive we have the possibility to see the shy Brown Hyena, Aardvark, Bat-eared fox, and Rhino.
Returning to the camp we could visit the AfriCat Foundation Carnivore Care & Information Centre (ACCC) (optional).
Back in the camp we can enjoy lunch and relax next to the pool before we go on another game drive which focuses on the wildlife on the reserve. More than 40 mammal species call the reserve their home.

Day 4: Etosha National Park

After breakfast we fly to the Etosha National Park, which is one of the largest game reserves in the world with almost 23'000 km2. Dozens of mammal and reptile species, several amphibian species and mor than 300 bird species call the Etosha National Park their home.
The parks most notable geological feature is a salt pan so large it can be seen from space. The salt pan is normally dry, however in the raining season fills up with water which attracts flamingos, pelicans, and other waterbirds.
The abundant wildlife congregates around the waterhole which almost guarantees game sightings.
In the afternoon we go on a guided game drive in the Etosha National Park. The experienced lodge guide will show us the fauna and flora of this fascinating landscape and hopefully we see some giraffes, springbok, oryx, elephants and zebras,
Back at the lodge we are being spoilt with a delicious dinner and a good wine selection.

Day 5: Etosha National Park

Early morning, we take another game drive into the park, where we might see some nocturnal animals on their way home from their nightly activities. We return to Mushara for lunch and to enjoy the pool at the lodge.
On a last game drive in the afternoon, we search for the elusive black rhino, lions, and shy leopard.
In the evening we look up into the sky and enjoy the multitude of the twinkling stars and the brightly visible Milky Way.

Day 6: Flight over the Damaraland to the Skeleton Coast

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast at Ongava before we fly over the Damaraland to Möwe Bay, Skeleton Coast.
Enjoy the flight over ragged mountain ranges with tabletops and conical mountain shapes with ephemeral rivers cutting through the desert landscape.
At Möwe Bay we are picked up and transferred to the Shipwreck Lodge, in the famous Skeleton Coast Park.
The lodge is nestled between the dunes and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. The main building and especially the bungalows captivate with their extraordinary architecture. All chalets offer a small stove for colder evenings and a cosy bathroom. 
The lodge is an excellent starting point to explore the fascinating and breath-taking landscape of the rugged Skeleton Coast. Due to its direct location on the Atlantic coast, you should expect sometimes cold nights, foggy mornings and evenings, gusty winds, and plenty of sun during the day - the true and unique face of the Skeleton Coast. The Shipwreck Lodge is the perfect accommodation in this inhospitable area, which you should have visited at least once in your life!
We will discuss our program for today and tomorrow with the lodge management. Activities offered by the lodge include beach lunch (weather permitting), Hoarusib River Excursion, introduction to the Skeleton Coast and Sundowner drive. Quad biking and Sandboarding offer excitement for the more adventurous.

Day 7: Skeleton Coast

The Hoarusib River excursion is worth joining. We spend the morning exploring the Hoarusib River, visit the Clay Castles and might even spot the elusive desert adapted elephants, brown hyenas, and lions.
On the Introduction to the Skeleton Coast, you will see what is left of the victims of the treacherous coastline. These include the decaying ships, the remains of a Bentura Bomber and the abandoned diamond mine.
We choose activities we want to join. In the down time we enjoy our comfortable lodge and the rough landscape on the coast of Namibia.

Day 8: Flight to Twyfelfontein Area

After a delicious breakfast we are off to the Twyfelfontein Area. The flight lasts less than an hour and gives us the opportunity to view the Damaraland from above. Flying over the Palmwag Concession we might even spot some desert elephants.
Onduli Ridge is located on the private concession of the Doro !Nawas Conservancy in the heart of Damaraland. We have a good view of the highest mountain of Namibia, the Brandberg, in the south and in the north the dispersed cathedral-like granite inselbergs. Roll your bed out onto the deck for a night und a billion stars.
We discuss the activities which we want to join. Maybe we want to search for desert-adapted elephants, go on a nature drive or hike or visit the rock art of Twyfelfontein.

Day 9: Twyfelfontein 

After a good night sleep, so close to nature or under the stars, we are ready to explore this stunning landscape and search for rare animals.
Depending on the activities we have selected, we are either enjoying the scenery of Damaraland and search for desert-adapted elephants in the ephemeral rivers of the area. An excursion to the UNESCO site of Twyfelfontein is interesting. Twyfelfontein was declared a World Heritage Site in 2007. The name "Twyfelfontein" is Afrikaans and means "doubtful spring". It lies at the foot of a massive sedimentary rock that forms the fossilized remains of a primeval desert that covered vast areas of present-day Namibia with its masses of sand some 180 million years ago. On a guided tour of about 30 to 45 minutes we visit the world-famous bushman engravings and rock paintings. They are witnesses of the indigenous people
who lived here hundreds or maybe thousands of years
ago, hunted and gathered berries and edible tubers.
Back in the camp we enjoy the delicious food and the view over the area.

Day 10: Flight to the coastal town of Swakopmund

Today’s flight will take us over the Doros crater and down the coast of Namibia to Swakopmund.
We are transferred to the Strand Hotel Swakopmund which is located on the beach and in walking distance of the city centre.
The afternoon we have time to relax on the beach, stroll through the city centre of Swakopmund or book a treatment at the spa of our hotel.
In the evening we enjoy dinner in one of the restaurants with a view of the ocean.

Day 11: Swakopmund

Today we join a very interesting boat trip on the lagoon of Walvis Bay. We will surely see hundreds of seals and flamingos, possibly also dolphins, pelicans and with a lot of luck even sunfish, leatherback turtles and in season whales. In the afternoon we have time go sightseeing in Swakopmund. Try a cake in one of the German cafes, visit the Swakopmund Museum, where the history and the different cultures of Namibia are presented very vividly.
Also interesting is a visit to the Aquarium, Snake Park or Crystal Galary. On the other hand, we perhaps would rather linger on the beach or take an extensive walk along the beach promenade.


Day 12: Return To Windhoek

Today’s flight to Windhoek takes us over the Namib Desert and Khomas Hochland to the international airport in time for our departure flight back home.
