Namibia Luxury Honeymoon, 14 nights

The Namibia Luxury Honeymoon itinerary is a truly romantic journey through Namibia’s breath-taking highlights.  Utilising a 4×4 double cab vehicle, perfect for our rugged terrain, this adventure starts & ends in Windhoek and includes the remote and other-worldly NamibRand Nature Reserve, Swakopmund, Twyfelfontein & Damaraland, Etosha National Park, and a private suite to end on a high at Okonjima/ AfriCat.


Day 1

You will be met in the arrivals hall of Windhoek Hosea Kutako Airport by one of our representatives will meet you to offer a thorough briefing of your whole holiday and go through your marked road map, vouchers, and itinerary with you. You will collect your hire vehicle here and drive the short distance to Omaanda Lodge.



Day 2 – 4

Today you have a long but scenic drive of around 6 hours. Located in the heart of the ancient Namib Desert, Wolwedans is a sustainable collection of lodges offering a unique desert experience in the vast NamibRand Nature Reserve. Enjoy inclusive activities such as nature drives, guided walks, an exploration of the water-wise gardens, horse riding, or e-biking.


Day 5

Today you will drive northwards from the NamibRand 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 6 hours excluding stops.


Day 6

Today 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 7 – 8

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 5 hours excluding stops or detours. Enjoy inclusive activities over the next two days such as nature drives in search of the desert elephants, guided walks, or a tour of Twyfelfontein World Heritage site.


Day 9 – 10

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 and your destination is the Ongava Reserve bordering Etosha National Park, Namibia’s prime wildlife area. During your time here you may enjoy optional guided game drives into Etosha and on the private Ongava reserve, guided walks, wildlife viewing at the lodge waterhole, and perhaps a visit to the fascinating Ongava research centre to learn more about the important scientific work being done here.


Day 11 – 12

After breakfast you will depart on your journey through Etosha, perhaps stopping at the central Rest Camp of Halali for some lunch and a break. 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. Enjoy optional guided wildlife activities from Onguma Reserve on Day 12.


Day 13 – 14

Today you will drive southwards from the eastern side of Etosha to Okonjima. You will travel through the towns of Tsumeb and Otjiwarongo which both offer opportunities for lunch or a quick break. The drive should take you around 4 hours excluding stops. Your fully inclusive stay at the Bush Suite will be a highlight of your holiday, enjoy a private guide and chef to make the most of leopard tracking, game drives, and simply relaxing around your private pool overlooking the waterhole.


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.
