Day 01: Windhoek – Okaukuejo (D)
An early morning pick-up from your hotel in Windhoek is the start of this camping adventure in Etosha National Park, Namibia. Driving north through Okahandja, Otjiwarongo and Outjo, we arrive at Anderson Gate, entrance to Etosha National Park, around 11h00.
Take the time to acquaint yourself with your surroundings, have a swim, rest in your tent or visit the watering hole for some wildlife viewing, before setting out on an exciting game drive in your open vehicle. This open vehicle allows for exceptional wildlife viewing and photo opportunities. Etosha is known for its abundance of animals, including black rhino and other rare species.
A unique characteristic of Etosha National Park is the vast, 5000km², salt pan, so big it is visible from space. This is a twitcher’s paradise after the rainy season as it attracts clouds of pink flamingos, as well as up to 350 species of bird life, including the European bee-eater, a popular sighting.
As the sun goes down it’s time to return to camp and a relaxing sundowner around the campfire before tucking into a traditional braai (barbecue). Then away to your comfy bed and dreams of Africa
Day 02: Okaukuejo (B, L, D)
One of the best times in the bush is early in the morning when the animals come out to drink at the watering holes, so we get an early start after some refreshing coffee or tea. We set out on a game drive moving between the watering holes in search of wildlife. There is prolific animal life here, including elephant, lion, cheetah, leopard, buck, giraffe ….. In this harsh, arid environment the watering holes are a gathering site where the animals congregate to slake their thirst.
You are accompanied on game drives by a knowledgeable guide who can decipher and explain the secrets of the bush. He keeps in close contact with other guides as they keep each other updated on any exciting sighting so that guests don’t miss a thing. At around 11h00 it’s time to return to camp for a hearty, well-deserved brunch. Then it’s time for some relaxation around the swimming pool, in your tent or at the watering hole, before departing on an afternoon game drive.
The seasons in Etosha are quite diverse. Summer is a time of rainfall, which means the wildlife is more elusive as the park becomes a lush oasis. Our safaris take place in the winter months when the park is dry and the wildlife is dependent on the watering holes and therefore so much easier to spot. Winters are mild and much more comfortable than the hot, humid summers, although warm clothes may be required in the evenings and early mornings.
After an afternoon of exciting sightings, it’s time to return to camp for that welcome sundowner as the sun sets over the watering hole. Feast on dinner, then share your encounters with your fellow travelers as you relax around the campfire. As night falls drift to sleep to the sounds of the African bush.
Day 03: Okaukuejo – Windhoek (B, L)
There’s time for one more exciting game drive so it’s another early start and an opportunity to update your sightings’ list. Coffee and rusks (dry biscuits) satisfy our early morning hunger before we hit the trail. By 10h00 we are back at camp to enjoy a delicious brunch.
There’s still a little time to shop at the camp curio shop for some mementos of this unforgettable adventure. Then it’s time to pack and be ready to leave at 13h00 for our journey back to Windhoek.
We arrive back in Windhoek around 19h00 where you will be taken to your accommodation.
