Day 2 - 3


Today you will continue into the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world. For a huge sand desert, however, its landscape is very varied, with the red dunes of Sossusvlei being one of the scenic highlights. It is a salt-encrusted clay depression surrounded by huge sand dunes. The dunes reach heights of up to 300 metres, making them some of the highest in the world. In the heart of Sossusvlei, you can walk to the impressive Dead Vlei and climb a dune to enjoy picturesque views. Visit the Sesriem Canyon or take a hot air balloon ride and marvel at the desert from the air.

Swakopmund offers many tourist attractions such as good restaurants, a beautiful city promenade, an aquarium and much more. There are also numerous excursion options available here, such as a trip to Walvis Bay or Cape Cross.

Windhoek is a quiet and well-organised city with a colonial German touch. German restaurants, German customs - the German tradition is reflected everywhere.

Day 10 - 13

Okavango Delta

Your time in Namibia is coming to an end and an adventure in the Okavango Delta in Botswana awaits you. From Windhoek you fly to Maun and from there you continue directly to your luxurious lodge in the heart of the famous Okavango Delta. It is one of the world's largest inland deltas and is home to an incredible variety of wildlife. The landscape, possible activities and game viewing vary considerably depending on the season and water level, as well as where you are staying in the delta. Some areas consist of large stretches of dry land, so the focus is predominantly on land activities (e.g. game drives) and thus on large animal viewing. Lodges located on islands far inland in the delta concentrate more on water activities such as mokoro excursions, safaris on foot, boat trips, fishing and bird watching.
