  • Two full days in Etosha National ParkWorld's highest sand dunesThe spectacular Namib-Naukluft Park DesertBrandberg, Namibia's highest mountain
The Discover Namibia - Lodges tour starts and ends in Windhoek. The Discover Namibia - Lodges is a Natural Landmarks Sightseeing tour that takes 13 days taking you through Windhoek, Namibia and other destinations in Namibia.

The scenic beauty of Namibia is only matched by its diversity. Deep canyons, towering sand dunes, otherworldly rock formations and vast salt pans seamlessly merge into each other in an endlessly shifting landscape. The sky seems particularly big here with spectacular sunsets and, at night, the sight of billions of stars twinkling overhead. This is the backdrop for healthy wildlife populations and a melting pot of different communities.

4.7 - Excellent Based on 10 reviews
Sand Sea and Sky
5 - Excellent
“I've done many group trips as well as a lot of independent travel but this was simply one of my best travel experiences. A fantastic group and wonderful leader team obviously helped but even without those this is an amazing country with spectacular vistas, ever surprising and wonderful wildlife and all under the bluest of blue skies. There is some amazing variety from the dry salt pans to the mountainous shifting dunes, huge landscapes that reach past the horizon, the strange charm of the coast and Swakopmund, the ever smiling people, the ease of travel, the facilities at the campsites and the wildlife...seeing the waterhole in the Etosha camp for the first time was a hairs on the back of the neck moment.”

“A fascinating kaleidoscope of scenery, climate and nature. From daunting, towering sand dunes, long desert roads, breezy Atlantic coast to exciting, animal filled plains. Always something to watch and thrill!”
Discover Namibia - camping - AZN
5 - Excellent
“This trip highlights many geographical areas of Namibia from huge sand dunes, to the west coast, to Etosha, and the Waterburg Plateau. It's a full but not grueling schedule with a little bit of down time built in. Namibia's landscape is amazing during the dry season when we travelled and it would be fascinating to see how it's different in the rainy season when the riverbeds have water and the Etosha Pan is full. It's a well thought out itinerary with clean camping facilities and a couple of hotel nights thrown in. Namibia is well set up for a self-drive vacation, but the tour provides experiences that are slightly off the beaten track and informative. Every day was interesting - and not to worry - you'll get to see plenty of wildlife at Etosha! The staff was knowledgeable, super outgoing, attentive to individual needs and generally very enthusiastic as well as proud of the country. Overall a great trip - absolutely recommended!”
A great introduction to Namibia
4 - Very Good
“Discover Namibia camping was great to do over Christmas. We saw diverse wildlife and landscapes with unexpected early rains and a sandstorm but this added to the experience!”
The tour starts at the Arebbusch Lodge in Windhoek. Those on group flights will be picked up at the airport and we will drive into town for an hour or so. In town everyone will have a chance to change money and pick up any supplies they may need; this is also an opportunity for our guides to buy fresh food. We will then drive to our lodge. The afternoon can be spent exploring or relaxing.*Arebbusch Lodge or similar*
Today we head southwest through the spectacular scenery of the Namib-Naukluft Park to Sesriem. This national park, one of the largest in the world, is home to one of the driest and oldest deserts on earth. It contains the finest desert scenery in Africa, if not in the world, with towering jagged rock formations and an incredible lunar landscape so be prepared for some great photo stops. (driving 300-350kms/7hrs)*Solitaire Guest Farm or similar*
Today we spend much of today in the Namib Desert. Rising early we catch the tallest sand dunes in the world in the morning light and have the opportunity to climb one of the dunes for fantastic views. We can either walk to Hiddenvlei or catch a transfer (optional extra) to Deadvlei where ancient acacia trees in the desert form an eerie scene. If we’re lucky we may see gemsbok or ostrich among the sand dunes. In the afternoon we visit Sesriem Canyon before joining a guide to see the cheetahs at the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre (please see Responsible Travel section) - depending on time we may go tomorrow morning. (driving 200kms/3hrs)*Solitaire Guest Farm or similar*
A long but very scenic drive through the Namib-Naukluft Park to Swakopmund. En route we visit Walvis Bay for lunch and to see local flamingos. Swakopmund is a small German colonial resort town with quaint cake shops and coffee houses and a centre for adrenaline activities. (driving 300kms /5.5hrs).*Prost Hotel or similar*
Today is a free day to enjoy one of the many optional activities on offer in and around town. At sea you can go deep-sea fishing and dolphin watching, in the desert you can go sand-boarding and quad-biking and in the sky you can fly over the skeleton coast. Or if none of these appeal you can spend the day enjoying the fantastic Viennese style cakes, walk along the beach or in the nearby dunes or just enjoy watching the world go-by in this town which seems strangely out of place in Africa.*Prost Hotel or similar*
After a relaxing start we leave the cool breeze of the Atlantic Ocean behind and head inland towards Namibia’s highest mountain, Brandberg, in Damaraland. The Damaraland area is famous for the desert elephants which roam in the Ugab River. Star gazing is normally spectacular from this remote area (240kms / 3.5hrs).*Brandberg Whilte Lady Lodge or similar*
We begin our day with a short drive to Brandberg, where we will enjoy a walk through valley 45 for approximately 1.5 hours. Along the way we will view beautiful, granite rock formations and a variety of birdlife. The valley takes us to the famous ‘White Lady’ rock painting which, along with a number of other small paintings and engravings, are thought to have been left by Bushmen at least 2000 years ago. Afterwards we will drive towards the Khorixas area where we should pass various Himba and Herero women selling crafts from the roadside. There is also the possibility of spotting Desert elephants and meerkats on the way. We will arrive at our accommodation after lunch and then in the afternoon we can view Vingerklip, a striking pinnacle of rock balancing vertically on its own (driving 250kms / 4.5hrs).*Outjo Lodge or similar*
Today we begin with a short drive to Etosha. We should arrive at Etosha in time for a late afternoon game drive before arriving at our accommodation for the night. The itinerary allows plenty of time to really enjoy this fabulous game park. (driving 200kms / 3hrs)*Okaukuejo or similar*
Etosha is a huge park of mixed forest and grassland centred around a large salt pan. Etosha is home to a great variety species, which are generally easy to find as the animals congregate at different times around the waterholes. Wildebeest, zebra, impala, springbuck, kudu, elephant, giraffe, lion and even rhino are all common sights here. Take plenty of camera memory and lots of patience and you will be rewarded by one of the greatest game spectacles in Southern Africa. Etosha is also a good place for birds, with plenty of water birds on the lakes (when filled with water), and weaverbirds and hornbills in the trees. While in Etosha we typically stay within the park on some or all of the nights (subject to availability) and some of these are located next to waterholes. These camps also offer optional night drives which you can book and pay for on arrival.*Namutoni or similar*

**Meals included*: *Breakfast (x2), Lunch (x1), Dinner (x1)
Leaving Etosha behind, we head towards the Waterberg Plateau. This 200 metre high gigantic flat-topped plateau with bushveld on top is one of Namibia’s most fertile areas. There are several walking trails, including one leading to a spectacular viewpoint near the top of the plateau offering a great view of the surrounding area. It is also possible to do an optional 4x4 game drive. (driving 300kms / 5hrs)*Waterberg or similar*
We have some free time this morning to relax or explore the Waterberg Plateau a little further. Later we head back to Windhoek stopping at a crafts market on the way. (driving 320kms / 4.5hrs).*Utopia Boutique Hotel or similar*
The trip ends after breakfast. Those on the group flights will be taken to the airport in time for their flight home. Free time can be spent relaxing at the accommodation or exploring Windhoek where there are museum and shopping opportunities. Alternatively, a township tour of Windhoek can be arranged and Okapuka and Daan Viljoen game reserves are close by (see Optional Excursions section).
