Our nights are spent at the flood-lit waterholes encountering the park’s various nocturnal animals that come to drink. Etosha was declared a National Park in 1907 and it is home to approx. 114 mammal species, 340 bird species, 110 reptile species, 16 amphibian species and, surprisingly, one species of fish.

An early morning start takes us from Swakopmund south through Walvis Bay on our way to the Namib-Naukluft National Park, which is considered to contain the oldest desert in the world. On the way there we will make a stop at the small settlement of Solitaire where you will have a chance to sample their world renowned Apple Crumble – only served without cream! The next morning we need to wake up early to visit the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. The dunes, which can reach heights of over 300 m, are absolutely spectacular and provide for a fantastic photo opportunity. With luck, there may even be water in the vlei (lake).
