On this comfortable tour through the south of Namibia, you will become acquainted with the beautiful nature of this vast country. The wide variety of landscapes fascinates every day. The amount of (sometimes rare) game in Etosha National Park is impressive. You spend the night in comfortable and sometimes luxurious accommodation in often beautiful places. You can ride an e-bike through the red dunes, hiking through the Namib desert or Fish River Canyon, sandboarding, a dolphin and whaleboat ride. You can also visit a San village, go on a game drive in Etosha, walk along Fish River Canyon, climb the high dunes of Sossusvlei or search for the wild horses of Aus. With the old mining village of Kolmanskop, this is a real journey for photography enthusiasts!
The route is an example, all our car trips are tailor-made trips, entirely tailored to your wishes.

Information about the accommodations

You stay at special and small-scale campsites and accommodations at beautiful locations, almost always with swimming pool & air conditioning.

We pay attention to good bathroom facilities at the campsites, sometimes these are even for private use. You can also choose to camp in the parks a little more simply but especially.
At a lodge you almost always have your own bathroom and toilet .

Accommodations and campsites have been carefully selected based on location, atmosphere, service and hygiene. A nice view, a more spacious room, a good bed and an extensive breakfast are things that we pay extra attention to, so that you can enjoy more from each place.

Day 1
Flight

Night flight from, or other airport in consultation. You arrive on day 2.

Day 2
Windhoek

Windhoek is the capital of Namibia and is located in the center of the country. With 230,000 inhabitants, it is even smaller than cities such as Enschede and Apeldoorn and the city is easy to explore on foot. The center is a mixture of German colonial buildings and modern buildings painted in fresh pastel shades. The Evangelical Lutheran Christ Church in Art Nouveau style is striking. In addition, the alte feste (old fort) and the station are also worth a visit. The station was designed by a Dutch architect and you can see many things from the NS stations that can still be found everywhere in the Netherlands.

Day 3
Keetmanshoop – Quiver Tree Forest

You spend the night at a simple place to stay according to the old “guest farm” tradition. The owner sometimes has cheetahs (which are normally conducted at 5 p.m.). The Quivertree Forest (Kokerboomwoud) and Giant’s Playground are a photogenic place late in the afternoon and early in the morning. The large black basalt blocks of Giant’s Playground form strange formations and are 160 to 180 million years old. Dinner is included.

Day 4
Fish River Canyon

You drive through the beautiful landscape of the Karas Mountains to the southwest to a small-scale accommodation in the Gondwana Canyon Park, near the entrance to Fish River Canyon. You can walk, ride a horse and fly over the Fish River Canyon. From the lodge it is approximately 20 km to the most famous viewpoint of Fish River Canyon, one of the largest canyons in the world.

Day 5
Fish River Canyon

Driving through the park you can encounter gemsbok or other antelope species. Klipdassies inhabit the steep walls of the canyon.

Day 6
Aus

A relatively short drive to Aus, north of Fish River Canyon, to the atmospheric and comfortable Aus Klein Vista, with excellent a la carte restaurant. The Lodge is known for a population of wild horses, which, depending on the rain and associated grass growth, comprises up to 150 animals in a season.

Day 7
Aus

You can go for a lovely walk from the Lodge or visit the farm. From Aus you can also drive to the coastal town of Lüderitz and the photogenic open-air museum Kolmanskop, a ghost village that arose when the diamond seekers flocked to the even more diamond-rich south.

Day 8
Namib Naukluft Park – Sossusvlei

From your spacious chalet with beautiful African-looking decors, you have a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. But of course you mainly come here for Sossusvlei, the famous dune landscape in Namib Naukuft Park. Even in the spectacular, yellow, brown and sometimes red dune landscape with the beautiful winding shadows, the best time to photograph is the early morning and at sunset.

Day 9
Namib Naukluft Park – Sossusvlei

Along the way there are some famous stopping places including the Sesriem Canyon, Elim and Dune 45, where you can climb dunes or take a walk.

Day 10
Swakopmund

You drive a beautiful route with many views, passes and vast desert to the cozy coastal town of Swakopmund, the second largest city in Namibia. The town is surrounded by the Namib Naukluft park, one of the most beautiful desert wilderness areas in Africa.

Day 11
Swakopmund

Just outside Swakopmund, a number of dunes are reserved for recreational purposes. Here you can go sand boarding and quad biking . The desert excursion through Namib Naukluft, with special attention to the special flora and fauna of this unique area, is also recommended. You can also book a boat excursion to look for whales, dolphins and seals. The flamingos are of course also very special .You can also play golf, go shopping, skydiving or go on a balloon trip or a flight over the desert (to Sossusvlei!).

Day 12
Swakopmund

The great thing about Swakopmund is that you can do so much, but also that there is so much choice of restaurants and you can enjoy the beach there.

Day 13
Damaraland

Stop en route at the Cape Cross Seal Reserve, a seal reserve. Due to the versatility of Damaraland, it is one of the most interesting areas of Namibia.

Day 14
Damaraland

You can find desert rhinos and desert elephants, very special. Some other highlights of Damaraland are: Brandberg, Spitzkoppe, Organ pipes, the petrified forest and Twyfelfontein. More than 2500 rock drawings from the San have been preserved here. The Welwitscha is the longest living desert plant on earth!

Day 15
Etosha National Park

Etosha National park, also called ‘Great white place’, is the largest nature park in Africa and was founded in 1907. The park is located in the north of Namibia and is almost as big as the Netherlands.

Day 16
Etosha National Park

Here you can not only see large herds of elephants and black rhinos, but also springboks, giraffes, oryxes, zebras, impalas (also the special black head), ostriches, hyenas, lions, leopards and cheetahs and the small damara thick thick antelope.

Day 17
Grootfontein - San Bushmen

From the lodge in Grootfontein you can make a special excursion that should not be missing on your Namibia trip: a visit to the San bushmen.

Day 18
Grootfontein - San Bushmen

This nomadic population is almost extinct, their language is seen as one of the oldest in the world. The way of life of the remaining San (who only live in the Kalahari) is still very traditional. You can also experience how they search for tracks, hunt, make fire and collect. Even though the San are also rapidly becoming westernized …

Day 19
Waterberg Plateau Park

On the way to Windhoek you will stop at Waterberg Plateau Park, a nature park consisting of savannah and forest, with red rock formations that contrast with the green surroundings.

Day 20
Waterberg Plateau Park

In addition to giraffe, bufel and zebra, white rhinos live here, as well as the rare sable antelopes, roan antelopes, eland antelopes, cheetahs and leopards. Unique is the breeding colony of Cape vultures.
