Day 1, Windhoek to Etosha National Park (440km)

Meet your driver and travel north to Namibia’s prime wildlife sanctuary, the Etosha National Park. Upon arrival, you check in, after which you spend the day at leisure. Take in the savannah environment, relax on the private veranda of your chalet or cool off in the sparkling pool.

Day 2, Etosha National Park

The day is devoted purely to open vehicle game drives in search of the abundant wildlife found in the Etosha National Park. The park surrounds a parched salt desert known as the Etosha Pan. The park is home to 4 of the Big Five – elephant, lion, leopard, and rhino. The Park was proclaimed Namibia’s first conservation area in 1907 by the then German Governor, von Lindequist.

Game viewing in the park is largely focussed around the waterholes, some of which are spring fed and some supplied from a borehole, ideal places to sit and watch over 114 different game species, or for an avid birder, in excess of 340 bird species. Popular game species such as giraffe, blue wildebeest, plains and mountain zebra, hyena, lion, leopard, antelopes such as kudu, oryx, eland, as well as some of the endangered species such as Black rhino, cheetah, and the black-faced impala are all found here. An extensive network of roads links the over 30 water holes allowing the visitor an opportunity to do a real game viewing safari over the stretch of the park as each different area will provide different encounters.

Day 3, Etosha National Park.

Today you take part in another open vehicle game drive through the Etosha National Park. You may encounter animal species we have not seen the previous day. Look forward to any new surprises at the different waterholes visited. The Etosha Pan dominates the park. This salt pan desert is roughly 150 km long and as wide as 50 km in places.

During Etosha’s notorious dry spells the pan is a deathly place, lying parched and cracked under the molten African sun. It is claimed that game viewing is best during the dry spells as animals will then congregate closer to water. But even in the rainy season, the park remains an abundant wildlife haven. In the rainy season, you experience the rebirth of life as the young foals, cubs, and chicks are seen frolicking with their parents. And the sprouting of new green shrubs and grasses creates a pleasing green oasis. In the afternoon we travel back to our lodge, where we enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure.
