Namibia Authentic Experience

Discover Namibia during this 16-day trip!

Experience the beauty and diversity of Namibia during a great holiday which will take you from the desert to white-sand beach. 

Day 1: Windhoek

Welcome to Namibia !

At your arrival in Windhoek you will meet with the car rental company who will help you fetch your 4x4.  You can then head to Olive Grove Guesthouse, and relax there before starting your Namibian trip the next day.

The next 15 days will take you through two of Africa’s great deserts. Midway through your travels, the intriguing town of Swakopmund, nestled between desert and sea, guarantees to delight with its charming curio-shops, restaurants and not to be missed excursions for both the adventurer and more gentle nature lover alike. Rock engravings at Twyfelfontein and the wildlife haven of Etosha National Park with ancient discoveries and unforgettable wildlife sightings to enjoy.

Day 2: Okonjima Nature Reserve

Check out from Olive Guest House to start your first Namibian adventure at the Okonjima Nature Reserve which is equally famed for frequent cheetah and leopard sightings on its safaris, as well as The AfriCat Foundation. Since being founded in 1991, AfriCat’s mission has been to make significant contributions to conservation, while trying to ensure the survival of Namibia’s predators in their natural habitat. It undertakes research, community support and environmental education projects, as well as conservation work to rehabilitate carnivores such as cheetah and hyaena.

Day 3: Etosha National Park

In the heart of the country, Etosha National Park is reached via Outjo, a convenient place to stop for fuel, coffee and snacks. Don’t linger too long though, Etosha is waiting. After checking in to Etosha Safari Camp, if time allows, drive into the national park to sit at the large Okaukuejo waterhole, which is often frequented by wildlife, or take a drive to the surrounding waterholes. For those just wanting a siesta, put your feet up and relax with a book at the lodge pool. Etosha Safari Camp’s colourful Shebeen restaurant has become a highlight on travellers’ itineraries. Modelled on Namibia’s ‘shebeens’ (informal township bars) of old, it’s an enjoyable lively venue. The dinner feast is enjoyed outside in the courtyard to the sounds of the musicians strumming their guitars and singing local melodies.
