Day 1-2: Villa Violet, Central Namibia
The central Namibian highlands are much cooler and less harsh than the arid lowlands that make up the majority of the country. This is great cattle ranching country and most tourism facilities have their origins in cattle and more recently game ranching.
Overnight: Villa Violet
Day 2-4: Kulala Adventurer Camp, Namib
The Namib Desert is considered to be the oldest desert in the world, having been arid or semi-arid for more than 80 million years. It stretches for 1 600 km along the entire length of the Namibian coast line. The massive sea of sand that is the Namib Desert combines with coastal winds to create the tallest sand dunes in the world, with some reaching up to 300 meters in height at Sossusvlei. Aside from these dunes the Namib is also renowned for the plants and animals that somehow survive there and the ships that have been wrecked on this unforgiving shore.
Overnight: Kulala Adventurer Camp
Day 4-5: Villa Margherita, Swakopmund
Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a seaside resort, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area and has plenty to keep visitors happy. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, colonial-era buildings and the cool sea breeze make it very popular.
Overnight: Villa Margherita
Day 5-7: Damaraland Adventurer Camp, Damaraland
Huge, untamed and ruggedly beautiful Damaraland is an exceptionally scenic landscape of open plains and spectacular rock formations. The major attractions are Spitzkoppe, the Brandberg, Twyfelfontein, Vingerklip and the Petrified Forest.
Overnight: Damaraland Adventurer Camp
Day 7-8: Opuwo Country Hotel, Kaokoland
The Kaokoveld is a dry, mountainous and relatively undeveloped region that takes in the harsh beauty of the Skeleton Coast and the coppery sands of the northern Namib Desert. The area is inhabited by three main ethnic groups – the Damara, Herero and Himba people – each with their unique customs, traditions and rituals.
Overnight: Opuwo Country Hotel
Day 8-10: Taleni Etosha Village, Etosha
The Etosha National Park is Namibia's premiere game viewing experience, situated in the northwest of Namibia and is an area well known for its wildlife. Vegetation ranges from dense bush to open plains attracting a diversity of wildlife. In the heart of the Park is The Etosha Pan - a shallow depression that covers an area of 5000sq kilometres. Dry and shimmering for most of the year, the pans fill up with water after good rains to a depth which is seldom deeper than 1m. In the dry season wildlife is attracted to perennial springs and waterholes that make for excellent game viewing.
