Breakfast & Dinner
Early morning Game Drive in the Etosha National Park Namibia's Etosha National Park is a huge saltpan surrounded by flat bushland. The water holes, scattered throughout this area, are the basis of life for countless game. Be it lion, elephant, giraffe or zebra, almost all African animal species are represented in the huge nature reserve, approx. 22,000 square kilometers in size. There are an estimated number of 300 lions, 300 rhinos, 2000 giraffes and 1500 elephants in the park. Particularly numerous are the dainty springbok, of which at least 30,000 specimen can be found here. Often, they can be observed in enormous herds of several hundred animals. The Etosha National Park has a good infrastructure - well-maintained gravel roads lead to the waterholes, where game viewing is at its best. In the three rest camps Okaukuejo, Halali and Namutoni, hotels, chalets and camping sites are available as well as restaurants, stores and swimming pools. The main entrance to the park is called the "Anderson Gate" at Okaukuejo in the south, where the park administration is also situated. The "Von Lindequist Gate" lies in the east near Namutoni. A new gate, the "Nehale lya Mpingana Gate" (King Nehale Gate) was opened at the beginning of 2003 in the north-east. Lunch will be for your own account Dinner will be served in the Restaurant

Kaokoland is home to some 6000 Himba. These friendly people are closely related to the Herero and speak the same language. The Himba are herdsmen, breeding mainly cattle and goats while leading a semi-nomadic life. They migrate with their herds to the different waterholes from season to season. For the Himba, clothes, hair and jewellery hold a special meaning and form an important part of their tradition and culture. The proud Himba women spend many hours on beauty care and grooming every day. They cream their whole body with a mixture of rancid butterfat and ochre, scented with the aromatic resin of the Omuzumba shrub. The cream lends the body an intense reddish glow, which reflects the Himba ideal of beauty.

The drive along the foot of the dunes is slow, taking precaution not to drive on the gravel plains and cause unnecessary damage. Conservation issues and the geological structure of the desert are discussed en route. The guide will stop frequently to look for tracks (known locally as reading the bushman paper), to determine which animals were active the night before and wherever possible, will try to catch some of them. Guides will share their knowledge about each desert animal, including adaptations and design for survival in the desert. Great care is taken to ensure each animal is returned safely to its home.

The tour ends at the Swakopmund Airport in time for your Charter Flight to Sossusvlei.

This luxurious desert resort was built with adobe bricks typical of Arabian villages and tents similar to those of the Bedouin. Guests can have a unique swim in the desert by splashing in the clear, cool pool. All rooms and the bar have a desert view.

Sossusvlei, Namibia’s famous highlight in the heart of the Namib Desert, is a huge clay pan, enclosed by giant sand dunes. Some of the spectacular hills of sand are, at a height of 300 meters, the highest in the world. Only after a heavy rainfall, which is a rare event in this area, does the vlei fill with water. As the clay layers hardly allow any water infiltration, a turquoise lake will remain for quite some time. The dunes of the Namib Desert have developed over a period of many millions of years
