Reception at the airport with delivery of travel documents and, for self-drive customers, the vouchers of the lodges and the collection of the car. Based on the arrival time, you will choose accommodation in the city and in BB, or accommodation located north of the capital, in DBB, immersed in the wild, with the possibility of safari for an exciting first contact with nature and African animals.

Etosha Park

Transfer to Etosha Park, the great white place sacred to the ancient San. The park is one of the largest and most animal-rich protected areas in Africa. After the entrance, the safari begins with your own car, wandering between a pool of water and the other where the animals go for watering, ensuring close-up and impressive photographs. Accommodation in one of the park’s resorts in BB, or in an off-park lodge in DBB. Distance about km 350.

Etosha Park

Full day dedicated to safari, which ensures exciting close encounters with elephants, giraffes, zebras and antelopes of all species and their predators, such as lions, leopards, hyenas. Also of great interest is the vast range of environments, dominated by the vast depression of the Etosha Pan, and the avifauna, rich in colorful species including countless birds of prey. Accommodation in one of the park’s resorts in BB, or in an off-park lodge in DBB.


We leave Etosha Park for the wild Damaraland region. Along the way stop for a visit to a Himba village; this proud people of shepherds, now unique in Namibia, preserve intact the traditional way of life, which from clothing to food to religious cults revolves all around the beloved cattle, and is famous for the beauty of women, covered with a mixture of red ocher and butter which makes them unmistakable. Arrival in the Twyfelfontein area, accommodation in DBB. Distance about km 250.

Damaraland/A prehistoric art gallery

In the morning, a visit to the famous site of Twyfelfontein, where you can admire the most spectacular rock art gallery in Namibia, one of the largest in the world: over 2000 petroglyphs engraved by the ancient San, since 2007 declared by Unesco “Heritage of ‘Humanity”. Accompanied by an expert local guide, you will enter the heart of prehistoric art by discovering techniques and meanings of the diversified figures traced in the sandstone. In the afternoon, safari with rangers in this land still rich in fauna, in search of the rare and unique desert elephants. Twyfelfontein area accommodation in DBB.

Atlantic coast/Swakopmund

In the morning departure for the Atlantic coast destination Swakopmund with two possible different routes: passing through the Erongo to visit the Spitzkoppe and its spectacular granite formations, or alternatively reach Swakopmund via a short stretch of the Skeleton Coast. Swakopmund, a picturesque town reminiscent of the German cities of old Europe. Here the hot desert meets the cold Atlantic currents of Benguela, giving rise to fogs, saline humidity and sudden changes in temperature that envelop the town in a sometimes surreal atmosphere. Afternoon: a choice between relaxation, a visit to the town and its Kristal Galerie, or a visit to the “Valley of the Moon” with its ancient specimens of the Welwitschia mirabilis plant, a true living fossil and an exclusive rarity in Namibia. Accommodation with BB treatment. Distance about km 270.

Atlantic coast/Swakopmund

Walvis Bay (Waterfront) boat trip for close encounters with sea lions, dolphins, sea birds and sometimes even whales.

Late in the afternoon, return to Walvis Bay and from here return to the booking hotel. Distance between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay about 30 km.

Namib Desert/Naukluft Park/Sesriem

Morning transfer to the Namib Desert. The route is very beautiful and varied, between canyons deeply furrowed by ancient rivers and two spectacular mountain passes, the Kuiseb and the Gaub; a short distance from this, you cross the line of the Tropic of Capricorn.

In the heart of the desert, discovering the highest and oldest sand dunes in the world, with explorations on foot of the famous Duna 45, of which you can reach the top, of the Dead Vlei (Dead Valley) among its ghostly ongoing acacias of fossilization, and of Sossusvlei, between arcane silences and unique landscapes, in constant change of shapes and colors. Visit to the Sesriem-Canyon: about 30 meters deep, it creates a humid environment rich in plants and animals in the heart of the desert. Area accommodation in DBB.

At The Gates Of The Kalahari Desert

With its fascinating expanses of red sand, the Kalahari (the always dry in the San language) is actually the least deserted desert in the world and welcomes an incredible variety of plant and animal species including the oryx, antelope superbly adapted to the environments. and the small meerkats.
