With packed breakfast you will start your adventure to the desert with aim of catching soft light of sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem we continue towards Sossusvlei with sand dunes rising along both sides of the road. This iconic landscape is made up of White Plains and red dunes which tower majestically against a deep blue sky and are among the highest in the world. We will stop at the famous Dune 45; ancient acacias stand silent in the impressive, open-air gallery. After enjoying desert breakfast we will take a desert walk in the cool of the morning, with the chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches.

This white clay pan lies between towering orange dunes and is dotted with the skeletal remains of hundreds of dead Camelthorn trees ideal to take amazing picture and later return to the lodge for overnight.

After dinner, a visit to the floodlit waterhole is strongly recommended as there is a good chance of seeing rhinos and lions come to drink. What makes this park unique is the floodlit waterholes at all the main camps.

After morning breakfast you embark on game viewing adventure where you will visit a number of waterholes and stop to view the Etosha Pan, also known as the “place of dry water”. This extensive, flat depression is about 5,000 km2 and a place of shimmering mirages. Seeing large herds of game in this setting is a unique experience. We may stop at Halali (the middle camp) to have lunch, before we continue on to Namutoni.
At Namutoni, we will be able to relax at the swimming pool or waterhole before a late afternoon game drive. The game viewing here is usually excellent, with close-up views of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks and plenty of birds. We may also see elephants and lions. In the evening we can enjoy a glass of wine and fabulous sunset from the tower of the old Namibian German fort before dinner.

After a morning game drive and the opportunity to take some more pictures of Etosha’s wildlife, be prepared for the long, scenic transit back to Windhoek.
