Here we will head for the White Lady Lodge, a rustic but simple place to stay right at the foot of the mountain and famed for occasional visits by Namibia’s desert elephants.

Day Seven - Palmwag

The drive from Brandberg to Etendeka is arguably one of the most stunning in Namibia. Which takes you over mountain passes and through sandy riverbeds before you reach the Palmwag  Concession. Etendeka gives you the opportunity to totally relax in one of the most pristine and remote areas on earth. The landscape dwarfs you and guests often describe it as a humbling experience. The scenery is breath taking, the wildlife  runs wild and free and the hospitality genuine and warm

Etendeka Mountain Camp

Day Eight - Palmwag

Etendeka is a legendary camp, here you can enjoy the total solitude, the magnificent scenery and with luck Damaraland’s famous desert lions, elephants and black rhinos along with giraffes, oryx, springbok, zebras and other resident herbivores. Your days will be spent in search of wildlife and your evenings will be spent around the campfire back at the lodge discussing the highlights of the day before a million stars come out.

Day Nine - Etosha South

Etosha

A long drive today, but an interesting one, Heading back onto the tar road to the Andersson Gate in Central Etosha to begin your safari in this world famous wildlife sanctuary.  This huge park is home to an amazing diversity of wildlife and the area around Okaukuejo is known for its open plains and wide vistas where vast herds of herbivores trek endlessly to the camp’s floodlit waterhole followed by the ever present carnivores looking for their next meal.

We have the whole day to explore the open plains that surround Okaukuejo Camp and the Mopane woodlands east of the camp around Olifantsbad waterhole.

Day 12 - Etosha East

Etosha

There are many key waterholes within a few kilometres of Namutoni Camp so we can spend our game drives looping back to camp for quick comfort breaks before we head off again to other areas. The camp has a lovely pool area that sells lunchtime toasties and beers and the evening restaurant has an outside seating area and good food.
