Day by Day Itinerary Back to Trips for Namibia

Namibia Pioneer Safari

Much of Namibia consists of magnificent and unspoiled wilderness areas - some being unique to the planet. From the dunes of the Namib to the ruggedly beautiful terrain of Damaraland where the desert-adapted elephant and rhino have made their home, it is an unforgettable land to which you will lose your heart. Your tour incoporates visits to Swakopmund on the Atlantic seaboard to explore the quaint seaside town and the fascinating life forms of her living desert surroundings; the awesome Namib and Kalahari Deserts; game-rich Etosha National Park and the scenic and cultural riches of Namibia. In the middle of the Namib, the earth’s oldest desert, the restless sand dunes of Sossuvlei are the highest in the world. Glowing a fiery orange at dawn, the dunes shift colour as the sun rises and sets; golden; ivory white; ochre and an intense maroon at first and last light. Turning inland from the coast you overnight in a community development campsite in Damaraland. Visit San engravings at Twyfelfontein and the petrified forest. From the Waterberg plateau, where the glowing sunset over tall acacias, you proceed to Etosha. The perennial waterholes and springs of the Etosha National Park mean survival to its many thousands of wild creatures. Although this journey must inevitably come to an end, you will be renewed by the untamed spirit of Africa. On this pioneer safari accommodation is in rest camp chalets as well as 3 x 3 meter tents, camping beds and shared bathrooms enclosures with flush toilets and hot bucket showers. This safari is for the adventurous traveler seeking an all encompassing, more rustic highlights tour through Namibia.
