Discover the very best of Namibia
You’ll be transferred by shuttle bus from your accommodation to where you’ll have your first briefing and can familiarise yourselves with the vehicles at 9AM to ensure an early departure. Everyone will have the opportunity to get acquainted with their Land Rover and get used to driving on the left-hand side of the road.
We’ll then drive north to our first lodge in the direction of Etosha. Located in its own game reserve, you’ll have the possibility to watch animals gathering to drink at the waterhole close to the lodge.
We leave the lodge to explore Namibia’s animal wildlife, our destination is Etosha National Park, one of the greatest game reserves in the world. Dense bush land and wide-open plains with large zebra and antelope herds await us on the journey. The meaning of Etosha is ‘place of dry water’ but it offers several waterholes, the meeting place for various diversity of species.
In our lodge for the evening, we can experience the magic of a starry African night once again – intensified by the distant roaring of a lion. During the day you can admire one drinking at a waterhole or dozing under a tree, if you’re lucky.
The evening, we sit very close to one of the few waterholes and watch numerous wild game emerging from the darkness.
Today we leave the park. After passing the Galton Gate we follow the Kamdesha route, which is renowned for its extremely dusty roads. Passing the Kamdesha Veterinary control point we’ll be heading through the plains of the Mopane savannah. It gets really dusty after that. We’ll be crossing the so-called “dust holes”. The sand is so fine here that it raises dust like water splashing from a puddle while driving through the passage in our Land Rovers.
In the afternoon, we reach our accommodation for the night and a relaxing dinner is served.
We continue our journey through the Palmwag concession area. Here we’ll get another convincing demonstration of the unparalleled off-road mobility of our Land Rovers. The route leads us through Namibia’s open spectacular plains.

We’ll be leaving quite early because we want to reach today’s destination of Swakopmund. We drive through the beautiful and bizarre mountain landscape with a good chance of spotting mountain zebras and other wild animals.
