Kalahari - Fish River Canyon - Aus - Namib - Swakopmund - Damaraland - Etosha

Namibia, the land of deserts and wild animals. As your plane approaches Windhoek, you will see the beautiful landscapes and endless expanses of the country. Are you already in the mood for more?

Upon arrival before 9:00 a.m. at the airport, your tour guide will pick you up personally and your journey to the south of Namibia will begin. On the way there, you will already experience how diverse this country is: You will drive past rugged mountain ranges surrounding the capital, Windhoek, while in front of you the land flattens out the closer you get to Rehoboth and Mariental. After a short while you will see the red dunes of the Kalahari Desert on the horizon. Did you know that they differ from those of the Namib in that they are more overgrown and contain more flora and fauna? Upon arrival at your first hotel, you will have the opportunity to freshen up and get acquainted with theis fascinating country during your first Namibia adventure: a nature tour with a cocktail.

Pro tip:

Should your arrival at the airport happen after 9 a.m., we would be happy to organize a pre-night stay for you (for an additional fee).

Time spent traveling from the airport in Windhoek to Kalahari: approx. 260 km

1 night stay with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in the Kalahari Desert, Namibia

Today starts with a drive further into the south of the country. Your first destination is the quiver tree forest near Keetmanshoop. Their name does them justice: They are an aloe plant whose hollowed-out branches were once used as quivers by the Bushmen. The journey then takes you through the red-brown mountain ranges, boulder-covered plains and sparsely vegetated steppes to the Fish River Canyon. There you will find the lodge where you will spend the night.



You can join a guided hike or a nature tour in the afternoon.

Time spent driving from Kalahari to the Fish River Canyon: approx. 440 km

Overnight stay with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks at Canyon Village, Namibia

Did you know that the Fish River Canyon is the second largest in the world? Come with us to the canyon today and marvel at the imposing backdrop of rock formations several meters high. You will drive to the edge of the high plateau, also called Succulent Karoo, which turns into a brightly colored sea of flowers after winter rains, covering the endless expanses of the desert like a carpet. The granite mountains, the stony dry river courses and vast plains that characterize the landscape provide contrast. Who doesn't automatically feel a little thirsty in a desert? But who immediately thinks of a distillery? The founders of the "Naute Crystal Distillery"! Near the end of the world, you can look forward to a liqueur and gin tasting before continuing to the historic town of Lüderitz. With a little luck, you can also watch the wild horses of the Namib.

Time spent traveling from Fish River Canyon to the Lüderitz: approx. 420 km

2 nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in Lüderitz, Namibia

Once in Aus, you should not miss the restricted area that runs along the Atlantic Ocean. Shortly before Lüderitz, you will stop at the ghost town of Kolmanskop. Here you will find houses that have been swallowed up by the desert sand and the adventurous story of the first diamond discoveries. But after the first diamond rush in the mid-20th century, the town was abandoned to the ever-moving desert. In this ghost town, the past comes back to life. After a guided tour, you will drive to Lüderitz for a short city tour, where you will have the opportunity to taste Namibian oysters. During this tour, you will also visit the Diaz Cross, the site where the Portuguese navigator Bartholomew Diaz set foot on land in 1488.

Overnight stay with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected beverages in Lüderitz, Namibia.

During the first days of your trip you could experience a lot in this multifaceted country, but there are still many more exciting adventures waiting for you. After breakfast, the rest of the journey takes you across the vast, seemingly endless expanses of the southern Namib Desert to the vicinity of the Sossusvlei. Here you will see a remarkable natural spectacle: some of the highest dunes in the world rise from the sand sea.


When you arrive at the lodge in the afternoon, you can relax by the pool or simply put your feet up in your room.


To experience even more of nature and wildlife, you can join a guided hike in the area in the afternoon.


No activities are included in the program today

Time spent driving from Lüderitz -to the Namib: approx. 440 km

2 nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in the Namib, Namibia

To make sure this trip will live in your memories for a long time to come, visit the dunes of Sossusvlei very early the next morning, before sunrise. Watch as the landscape is bathed in beautiful shades of orange and red - photography lovers, don’t forget your camera. The stunning ochre sand dunes tower over the barren land at heights of up to 320 meters, making human footprints look like tiny ant trails. The white vleis provide a sharp contrast to the red sand and immaculate blue sky. In the gradually swelling midday heat, animals and plants find refuge in the sand and under weathered camel thorn trees. In the evening and at night, they depend on the nocturnal desert fog to survive.

Afterwards, another highlight awaits you: The Sesriem Canyon, which got its name from the former settlers who depended on the water holes on the canyon. They reached the water by knotting six leather straps together. Descend with us into the canyon and embark on a journey back in time to 15-18 million years ago. Marvel at the alternating layers of gravel, boulders, sand, and rocks that were deposited during a more humid phase and contributed to the formation of calcareous rock. Today you'll find a gorge up to 30 meters deep that dug into the conglomerate soil when the sheer force of the Chachab River's waters shaped the landscape for about a kilometer, two to four million years ago. Thanks to this evolution, visitors today can reconstruct the history of the area, which is carved in stone.

Overnight with desert breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected beverages in Namib, Namibia.

From the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the rest of the route takes you to the Atlantic Ocean today. Enjoy the drive through the unique landscape, seas of dunes to the left and overwhelming mountain ranges to the right. This drive you will also transport you into the geological past: Marvel at in the two canyons you will cross. Oryx, mountain zebra, springbok and ostrich live on the vast expanses of the Namib Desert and have adapted perfectly to the arid conditions. Their main source of life is the morning mist of the oldest desert in the world.

Walvis Bay is the site of Namibia's only deep-water port. Here you will visit the shallow lagoon, which is the oldest lagoon in Namibia, dating back over 5000 years. Today it is an internationally recognized bird sanctuary (RAMSAR), which is home to the most important mudflat area in southern Namibia. What makes this area worth a visit? About 160,000 birds find shelter here and more than 200,000 find a fortifying place that provides them with enough food as they migrate to and from the Antarctic regions. The lagoon is a real magnet for flamingos. About 80% of all flamingos in southern Africa come here to feed? Seasonally, the animals come to the lagoon in flocks of several thousands, providing colorful splashes of color against the blue background of the water and sky. Near the nfternoon you will arrive in Swakopmund with its beautiful beach and little streets. You can spend the rest of the day as you wish and explore the town, for example.

Time spent traveling from the Namib desert to Swakopmund: approx. 350 km

2 nights with breakfast and lunch included in Swakopmund, Namibia

On the eighth day of your trip, you will embark on an exciting catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay with a tasting of fresh oysters and sparkling wine. You can spend the rest of the day as you wish. Take the opportunity to participate in optional excursions that will introduce you to the diversity of the desert, the breathtaking dunes or the Atlantic Ocean. How about a leisurely evening at a local restaurant where you can enjoy a wonderful selection of fresh seafood and fish? Arrange this day just the way you like it.

Overnight stay including breakfast in Swakopmund, Namibia

It's time to say goodbye to Swakopmund and its beautiful beach, as the rest of the journey takes you north and inland, towards Damaraland. You will drive past Henties Bay, the majestic Brandberg Massif, which is the highest elevation in Namibia, and the former mining town of Ulis. Scenic Damaraland is known for boasting the most geologically diverse landscape in Namibia and a safe home to the desert elephant, black rhino and numerous free-ranging antelope species.

Immerse yourself in the culture of the country and join us on a visit to the street markets where the Damara people sell a colorful variety of crystals, including various quartz and amethysts - a very special souvenir. Another stopover that will surely remain in your memory for a long time is a visit to a Damara village. Did you know that the Damaras have been living in Namibia together with the Bushmen for thousands of years and thus belong to the actual indigenous people of southern Africa? Learn about the centuries-old traditions and culture of survival with simple means in the village.

Further in your journey, you will get to Twyfelfontein, Namibia's only UNESCO World Heritage Site, which makes the country one of the most important cultural centers in the world - often referred to as the largest open air art gallery in southern Africa. A farmer gave this place its present name because he doubted that the unreliable spring (“Twyfelfontein” in Afrikaans) would have fed Stone Age hunters and their prey for thousands of years. Even from a distance you will discover the red sandstone rocks that seem to glow in the heat - which provided good shelter and hiding places for hunters and numerous animals. While the hunters lay in wait, they carved their experiences and the animals they saw into the stone. Even today, the images, which are several hundred years old, are still easily recognizable.

If you think you have already seen everything, then look forward to other Damaraland highlights when you visit the Organ Pipes, Burnt Mountain and the fascinating Petrified Forest, extraordinary natural phenomena that add to the charm of this region. The Petrified Forest is like a trip back in time, as the fossilized remains of tree trunks provide a glimpse into the flora of 260 million years ago. Even today, details such as color, texture of the bark and growth rings are clearly visible. The illusion is perfect when, to your surprise, you realize you are touching stone that looks like a log In the late afternoon, you will reach the lodge and relax.

Time spent traveling from Swakopmund to Damaraland: approx. 480 km

1 overnight with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in Damaraland, Namibia

Time spent traveling from Damaraland to the Etosha National Park: approx. 200 km

1 overnight with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in Etosha National Park, Namibia

Namibia is blessed with abundant flora and fauna. In the world-famous Etosha National Park, you will have the unique experience of meeting animals in the wild during a game drive. Animals like zebras, giraffes, oryx, springboks, kudus and the unique black-faced impala are residents of the African savannah - you can spot them all if you are lucky. Birdwatching enthusiasts will also have unique encounters here, as migratory birds from other counties stop over here in addition to the countless native bird species. A little more luck is needed for sightings of rather shy lions, leopards and cheetahs as well as hyenas and jackals roaming the area in the early morning or late evening.

Distance traveled: 300 km

2 nights with breakfast, lunch and dinner including selected drinks in Etosha National Park, Namibia

Get ready for another day in Etosha National Park. Thanks to its 22,000 square kilometers, it can call itself one of the largest national parks in Africa. It is also one of the most species-rich nature reserves in the world. The park is named after the huge Etosha salt pan, whose shimmering surface evokes veritable mirages and captivates visitors with its endless expanses. There are numerous waterholes at the salt pan, which attract countless animals like a magnet. Charge your camera the day before to capture the many photo opportunities and unique moments forever.


If you are looking for even more adventure, you can also book a guided game drive in an open off-road vehicle at your accommodation. Your guide will be happy to assist you with this.
