Explore the greatest wilderness of Africa
October 22nd - November 5th 2019
Namibia possesses some of the most stunning landscapes in Africa, and a trip through the country is one of the great road adventures. Natural wonders such as that mighty gash in the earth at Fish River Canyon and the wildlife utopia of Etosha National Park enthrall, but it’s the lonely desert roads where mighty slabs of granite rise out of swirling desert sands that will sear themselves in your mind. It’s like a coffee-table book come to life as sand dunes in the world’s oldest desert meet the crashing rollers along the wild Atlantic coast. Namibia is also the headquarters of adventure activities in the region, so whether you’re a dreamer or love hearing the crunch of earth under your boots, travel in Namibia will stay with you long after the desert vistas fade.

Arrive in Windhoek and collect 4×4 Rental vehicles. We spend the first night in Windhoek and eat dinner at Joe’s Beerhouse.
We start our journey north to the town of Tsumeb to enter Etohsa National Park, and camp at Namatoni Campsite inside the park.
We do a day trip through the Etosha Pans, world renowned national park and spend a night at Okaukuejo Campsite.
We drive even further north via the town of Opuwu and camp at Powu Lodge with beautiful views over the valleys.
We head off toward the most northern border of Namibia and Angola on the banks of the Kunene River and camp at Kunene River Lodge.
We drive toward the Epupa Falls and spend two nights again on the banks of the Kunene River.
We visit a Himba traditional kraal in the morning and learn about there lifestyle and traditions. The afternoon we will spend river rafting on the Kunene River.
We start travelling South toward Van Zyl’s Pass where we camp before descending into the Marianfluss the next day.
We drive the vast Marianfluss valley until we reach Red Drum and then travel almost directly East to Orupembe where we overnight at the Marble Campsite run by the local community.
We drive further south to the Puros area where the infamous desert elephants are to be found along with other game and maybe have a sighting of the desert lions, no guarantees though!! There are only 150 in a 24000 square km area!
We spend the day exploring the area as well as the Puros Canyon area and the chances of finding Desert Elephants in this area is VERY good…however we have to be careful as they are very aggressive.
From Puros we drive toward Sesfontein and on to Khwarib where we will overnight.
Today we drive through the Khwarib Schlucht, there worst dust (fesh fesh) you have ever seen! Worse than the Dakar! to arrive back at Kamanjab to overnight.
We start our drive back to Windhoek where we finish off an epic adventure with dinner again at Joe’s Beerhouse!!
Time to fly back and hand back the 4×4 rental vehicles.
