Welcome to Namibia - it's a fascinating country which boasts an array of cultural and natural experiences for everyone to enjoy. It's one of Africa's largest countries and is home to remarkable wildlife, spectacular landscapes, wonderful cultures and the world's oldest desert and our self-drive route takes you through some of Namibia's bucket list regions.

Your adventure begins in Windhoek where you'll spend your first night and Rivendell Guesthouse (Bed and breakfast) and pick up your trusty 4x4 before heading out to explore the open roads. Heading north towards Okonjima Nature Reserve and staying at Okonjima Plains Camp (Dinner, bed and breakfast) for two nights - which is home to the AfriCat Foundation who work for the preservation of Africa's big cat species such as leopard, lions and cheetah. There's a very good mix of wildlife activities to enjoy here from nature walk, day and night game drives and a predator tracking experience.

From Okonjima your journey will continue north towards the world famous Etosha National Park which is home to a myriad of iconic African species such a lion, elephant, giraffe, zebra and black rhino to name just a few.. Here's you'll enjoy two nights at the atmospheric Etosha Safari Camp (bed and breakfast) where you either self drive yourself around the National Park and spot wildlife for yourself or hire one of the many experienced, local guides.

You'll be based at Etendeka Mountain Camp (fully inclusive) which is famed for it's excellent guiding under Dennis Leibenberg who will enthral you about the fascinating geology and about the people and history. Wildlife sightings are an added bonus.

The next stop on your epic journey through Namibia is on the beautiful coastline of Swakopmund, staying at the charming Cornerstone Guesthouse (bed and breakfast) The property is ideally located enabling you to explore the quiet town or do all manner of activities such as sea kayaking, quad biking or even skydiving, the area is full of activities for you to try so you'll certainly be kept as busy as you want.

From Swakopmund you'll head south towards Sossusvlei and from your base for two nights at Hoodia Desert Lodge (fully inclusive), you'll be in a prime position to get access to the world famous sand dunes and glorious scenery of which Namibia has become synonymous with.

Big Daddy Namibia

This really is an incredible part of the country and no visit is complete without a trip through the park gates as the sun rises, to see the contrast between the black dark sides and orange light sides of the dunes. Truly a sight to behold. Visitors have the opportunity to climb one of three dunes: Dune 45, Big Daddy or Big Momma. Anyone looking for bragging rights should head straight for Big Daddy, which rises 325 metres from the desert floor presenting a challenging but rewarding climb. Descending to ground level you will be able to visit the eerie calm of Dead Vlei, an ancient salt pan which supports no life, but has a number of ancient, blackened acacia trees contrasting against the white of the pan and the blue of the sky.

After two nights, it's time to head back towards Windhoek and relax in the comfortable and welcoming Rivendell Guesthouse (bed and breakfast) after dropping off your trusty 4x4 vehicle. Now you've explored Namibia, discovered its raw beauty, epic wildlife and will have a million tales of your adventures to tell your friends and family.
