Discovering Namibia is a captivating experience. Venture into a world of changing scenery, a vast unspoilt wilderness, with its cosmopolitan atmosphere and people. We explore Namibia's attractions using a diverse itinerary, including the central area with the Namib Desert (Sesriem and Sossusvlei) and the northern area with the famous Etosha National Park. The Classic Namibia Safari is ideal for the traveler seeking a unique, comfortable way to explore this amazing country.

DAY 1: WINDHOEK
Windhoek, with its novel scenery of German architecture, activities and atmosphere, is a city that can be visited throughout the year. The day is spent at leisure. We are met by our guide at the reception of the Windhoek Country Club (or similar) at +-18h00. Dinner own account. (Accommodation with breakfast).

DAY 2/3/4/5: 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. It is a ghostly white lake, dazzling with heat waves and mirages for most of the year. Thousands of wild animals such as blue wildebeest, springbok, kudu, zebra, giraffe, cheetah, leopard, lion, elephant etc. are attracted to the area. The birdlife is prolific with 326 recorded species. After 2 days exploring the eastern area of Etosha, our safari crew will expertly move our exclusive camp to the west of the shimmering pan, while we continue to enjoy our early morning and afternoon game drives. Fully serviced mobile safari. (All meals).

DAY 6: TWYFELFONTEIN
Twyfelfontein "Fountain of Doubt" possibly has the most spectacular collection of rock paintings and engravings in Africa. Other attractions include the Petrified Forest, which has a large number of fossilised tree trunks, the Burnt Mountain and the Organ Pipes. Fully serviced mobile safari. (All meals).

Swakopmund, with its German colonial atmosphere, is the principal coastal resort of Namibia. This charming town is surrounded by the Namib Desert and has many buildings and houses dating back to the German colonial era. Hansa Hotel or similar. (Breakfast only, lunch and dinner not included).

DAY 8: NAMIB DESERT
Today we are introduced to the amazing landscapes of Moon Valley and the Welwitschia - an unusual pre-historic plant, which is a dwarf tree flourishing on the moisture of the Atlantic Coast. Its life span 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. Fully serviced mobile safari.

DAY 9/10: NAMIB NAUKLUFT
Our journey takes us through the Namib Desert, a vast solitary place, harsh and primeval, the oldest desert on earth. The gigantic 275m high red and grey dunes are the highest in the world. This desert is extraordinary with over 200 species of beetles, scorpions, spiders, geckoes, chameleons, crickets, wasps, lizards, moles, sidewinder snakes, snake-eating eagles and jackals.
