Day 4 - Orange River/Fish River Canyon

We will make our way to the Fish River Canyon, the largest canyon in Africa and, arguably, the second largest in the world. Watch as a spectacular sunset slips over the canyon's rim in the early evening. Permits are required to descend into the canyon; we will have access to the rim only, but the views are magnificent.

Day 5 - Fish River Canyon/Namib Desert

Explore the natural wonders of this bizarre desert environment. Passing the small and desolate towns of Bethanien and Helmeringhausen, continue north along long and bumpy roads, en route to the Namib Desert. Arrive in the area in the late afternoon, where the towering red sand dunes of Sossusvlei form the gateway into the Namib Desert. Here, you really feel as though you're in the middle of nowhere. We arrive in the early evening and set up our camp.

Day 6 - Namib Desert

Explore the Sesriem Canyon, a small canyon typical of the area. Then continue on to the breathtaking Sossusvlei Dunes, and climb the breathtaking Dune 45. Visit Sossusvlei, a clay pan enclosed by the world's largest sand dunes and enclosing ancient dead trees. Here, opt to take a guided walk at the dunes, and enjoy some free time to explore them on your own. Arrive back at our campsite around lunch time and take down tents, pack up the Lando, and drive to the next desert campsite. Don't miss out on the optional sunset desert dunes bush walk to learn more about the desert, dunes, and the way of the bushmen.

Swakopmund has bizarre lunar landscapes, unforgettable sunsets, and prehistoric Welwitchia plants.

Swakopmund is one of the adventure capitals of Africa. Enjoy a free day to relax or get the adrenaline pumping. Choose from sky diving, or dune boarding, just to name a few options.

Day 9 - Swakopmund/Spitzkoppe

Travel north to the granite peaks of Spitzkoppe. Explore on your own by foot, and be sure to check out the night sky??it's great for star-gazing!

Day 10 - Spitzkoppe/Damaraland

Visit the Damaraland Living Museum to learn more about the lost culture of the Damara people. Look out over beautiful desert landscapes as far as the eye can see. There are Himba, Herero, and Damara people along the way selling local arts, and we'll be sure to make a few stops to find out more about their offerings. Pass into more stony desert landscapes, and arrive at camp by mid-afternoon.

Day 11 - Damaraland/Etosha National Park

Enter Etosha National Park and enjoy an afternoon wildlife safari drive in the Lando. Upon arrival to the park in the afternoon, head out for a wildlife safari drive in the Lando to search for elephants, antelope, and lions around the watering holes. After sunset, watch animals at the watering holes near the camping area, which is safe, being well lit with flood lights. Free time at night allows for the option of a night safari in an open vehicle.
