Namibia Glamping Safari, 14 nights

Our Namibia Glamping Safari includes Namibia’s iconic highlights whilst offering flexibility and excellent value for money. Utilising a 4×4 double cab vehicle, perfect for our rugged terrain, and taking advantage of mostly self-catering accommodation in stunning locations, this adventure starts & ends in Windhoek and includes the Kalahari Desert, Sossusvlei, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein & Damaraland, Etosha National Park, and Waterberg Plateau.


Day 1

You will be met in the arrivals hall of Windhoek Hosea Kutako Airport by one of our chauffeur drivers who will transfer you into town in an ATI luxury vehicle. After taking some time to shower, relax (and maybe have a quick nap), your hire car will be delivered to your guest house or hotel around 4pm. If you’re landing late in the day, it will be delivered around 8am the following morning. One of our representatives will meet you at the same time to offer a thorough briefing of your whole holiday and go through your marked road map, vouchers, and itinerary with you. We’re also on hand to book a restaurant for tonight, should we not have already done so.


Day 2 – 3

After breakfast you will set off on your self-drive journey to the next destination, following our detailed road directions and map. During your briefing we will have shown you the best places to stop off for lunch or a break, as well as any highlights which are worth visiting along the way. Enjoy two nights here, maybe taking an optional sundown or early morning nature drive into the red Kalahari dunes.


Day 4 – 5

Today you will drive west from the Kalahari Desert to your overnight destination close to the Namib Naukluft National Park, Sesriem & Sossusvlei.

On Day 5 you have the opportunity to drive yourself into the Namib Naukluft National Park to visit Sesriem & Sossusvlei. The gates open at sunrise and close at sunset, and your lodge should be able to advise you of the exact times. Many guests like to stop at Dune 45, one of the highest in the Park, to stretch their legs and enjoy the amazing views. At the 2×4 car park you will find NWR vehicles offering shuttles through the 5km 4×4 only section to the start of the walk to Deadvlei.


Day 6 – 7

Today you will drive northwards from the Sesriem area to your overnight destination at the coast. Solitaire is the perfect rest stop with a fuel station, café, shop, and the best apple pie in the Southern Hemisphere. You may like to stop briefly in Walvis bay to see the lagoon and look out for flamingos, pelicans, and other birdlife. The drive to Swakopmund should take you around 5.5 hours excluding stops.

On Day 7 you have time to explore the town of Swakopmund, maybe enjoying an ice cream or coffee at one of the many cafes. We also love the aquarium which has a walk-through viewing tunnel and daily feeding  in the large tank at 15h00. On Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays the feeding is done by a diver which is great to watch, especially for children. Other attractions include the snake park, a brilliantly informative way to learn about Namibia’s reptiles, and the ‘Kristall Galerie’ which houses one of the world’s largest quartz crystals. And at the end of a busy day, we recommend champagne and oysters on the deck of The Jetty restaurant to watch the sunset.


Day 8 – 9

Today you will drive north along the coastal road, turning inland at Henties Bay and continuing past the mighty Brandberg Mountain into Damaraland. Perhaps make a detour to visit the seal colony at Cape Cross if time allows. The drive should take you around 4.5 hours excluding stops or detours. Enjoy two nights here, maybe taking an optional excursion to the World Heritage site of Twyfelfontein, or a nature drive in search of the desert elephants.


Day 10

After breakfast you will set off on your self-drive journey to Hoada Campsite, located in Damaraland’s ancient boulder-strewn landscape. following our detailed road directions and map. During your briefing we will have shown you the best places to stop off for lunch or a break, as well as any highlights which are worth visiting along the way.


Day 11

Today you will drive northeastwards from Damaraland to southern Etosha, Namibia’s wildlife highlight. The drive should take you around 4.5 hours excluding stops. Here you will stay in another Camping 2Go Self-Catering unit, based at Etosha Safari Camp.


Day 12

After breakfast you will depart on your journey through Etosha,  stopping for the night at the central Rest Camp of Halali. The Park opening and closing times vary depending on sunrise and sunset, and your lodge will be able to advise on the current time. You will need to complete a form at the Park entrance, and pay Park fees at the closest Rest Camp. Park Fees cost N$150 per adult per 24-hour period, N$100 per child aged 9-16, no cost per child aged 0-8, plus N$50 per vehicle. Allow a whole day for this drive as you will want to make the most of the wildlife viewing.


Day 13

Make your way back to Southern Etosha today, and possibly the most exciting waterhole in Namibia at Okaukuejo! Spend a second night inside Etosha National Park with plenty of time for self-drive wildlife viewing.


Day 14

Make your way back towards Windhoek today and enjoy your last night in the lush, green haven of the Waterberg Plateau. Perhaps take an optional guided hike onto the plateau from where you can enjoy amazing views.


Day 15

You will continue your drive, ending at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport to drop your hire car off in time to connect with your onward flight.  The drive to the airport from Windhoek city centre takes around 45 minutes, and you should arrive no later than 2.5 hours before your flight departs in order to drop your car off and check in.
