Day 1&2: Etosha Safari Camp Gondwana Collection Namibia, Etosha South
After breakfast and meeting your guide for the safari we will drive to Etosha National Park where will spend the next 3 nights. Etosha is one of Africa’s biggest and best National Parks and one of the main tourist attractions in Namibia. We will do morning and afternoon games drives and relax at the pool or camp waterhole between drives.

Day 3: Mushara Bush Camp, Etosha East
From here we will make our way across the park in a full morning game drive to Mushara Bush Camp on the eastern boundary where we will spend the next night.

Day 4: Windhoek Gardens Guest House, Windhoek
After an early morning breakfast and perhaps another short game drive we will depart for Windhoek where will spend tonight in a Guesthouse before continuing our safari tomorrow to Sossusvlei.

Day 5: Solitaire Country Lodge, Solitaire
After breakfast we will depart for Sossusvlei. We will drive through the Khomas Hochland and down the escarpment via one of the scenic mountain passes into the Namib Desert. This journey will take about 4 hours depending on the number of stops for photographs. Dinner and accommodation will be at one of the best lodges in the area perfectly situated to explore the surrounding desert and its attractions.

Day 6: Solitaire Country Lodge, Solitaire
After an early breakfast and coffee, we will depart for a morning excursion to Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei. We will stop at the scenic Dune 45 along the way and spend a couple of hours at both Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei. Some of the dunes in the area are a few hundred meters high but the view from the top for those that dare is one you will never forget. After a quick stop for lunch en route we will do an excursion to Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge too relax after an exciting day.
Included Activities: Dune 45, Sossusvlei - The Vlei, Sesriem Canyon

Day 7: Departure
After an early morning breakfast, we will depart for Windhoek where you will catch your connecting flight or stay for another night in Windhoek. Please do let us know for suggestions on possible extensions if you are interested in exploring the rest of Namibia or Africa.

Consultant Notes
Please arrange for your departure flight to be as late as possible today (nothing before 15:00) as we have a 6-7 hour drive to get to Hosea Kutako International airport. Or alternatively let us know if we can assist with booking an extra night in Windhoek for you
Excluded:
• Flights
• Pre-and post-trip accommodation if required
• Drinks
• Lunch & dinner in Windhoek
• Gratuities
• Items of a personal nature

Consultant Notes
Please select a flight that arrives as early as possible on the first day so that we can get to our lodge in time for a sundowner drink. Any flights arriving after 11:00 might become a challenge to arrive at our lodge before sunset. Best would be then to stay for an extra night in or around Windhoek. Let us know if you require any assistance with booking your Windhoek accommodation.
At Touristlink, we love to travel!

Totally blown away!
Knew the trip would be amazing due to Nick's responses to my emails whilst planning the trip - fast responses, swapped things around for us for the tailor-made trip (pleasing a group of friends flying in from opposite sides of the globe).
Kit, our local guide is an invaluable friend - he knew exactly where to find the animals, very patient for millions of elephant photo stops, and also has rather good knowledge and taste in the local vino! And met us at his local in Windhoek for a memorable last night dinner!
All of the lodges used by NTN are of the highest standard - can't fault anything!
Can't wait for the next trip!!

Our adventure in Namibia was facilitated by Naturetravel Namibia. What an amazing country . Esmari planned our itinerary to give us an overview of the highest sand dunes in the world, cities surrounded by desert, ancient rock engravings and Etosha National Park for an amazing opportunity to see the animals. We opted to do a driving tour with a private driver/guide and we're extremely fortunate to have had Rodger spend 8 days with us. His knowledge of politics, animals, history, plants, geology and customs kept us alert and learning through out the trip. Some of the long drives seems a lot shorter due to lively informative discussions we shared along the way. We feel like we have a new friend in Namibia!
We did a counter clockwise loop through the country starting in Windhoek. We posed in front of 600 year old dead trees trapped in the dunes, hiked back into off road ponds of flamingos, watched thousands of seals frolicking in the ocean and nursing babies on the beach, were awed by Namibian nights skies, all the time knowing Rodger was taking care of details.
Thank you Esmari and Rodger for sharing Namibia with us!
