Day 3. Etosha National Park

We devote today to open vehicle safari to search for the huge variety of wildlife in the Etosha National Park surrounding a salty desert known as the Etosha Pan. One finds 4 of the Big Five here;  elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. Etosha is Namibia’s first conservation area, proclaimed in 1907 by the then German Governor, von Lindequist. We focus game viewing around the waterholes. Some of them are spring-fed and some from a borehole.

The waterholes are ideal places to sit and watch the wildlife as well as more than 340 bird species. You will find wildlife such as giraffe, blue wildebeest, plains and mountain zebra, leopard, hyena, lion and antelopes such as oryx, kudu, eland here, with some of the endangered species such as Black rhino, cheetah and the black-faced impala included. A  network of roads links the over 30 water holes allowing for an opportunity to do a real safari throughout the southern section of the park as each different area will provide different encounters.

Day 4. Etosha

Today we continue with an open vehicle safari in the Etosha National Park. Look for the wildlife not seen the previous day and look search for any new surprises at the different waterholes visited. The park nearly completely encloses the Etosha Pan and numerous watering holes line it. It is roughly 150 km long and as wide as 50 km in places.

The Pan is a deathly place during the park’s dry spells. It lies parched and cracked under the hot African sun. Game viewing is generally best during the dryer periods as the wildlife congregate closer to water. However, even in the rainy season, the park remains a wildlife haven. This time we have the opportunity to experience the rebirth of life as the young foals, cubs and chicks are seen frolicking and the sprouting of new green shrubs and grasses turn it into a green oasis. Back at the lodge, we enjoy the rest of the evening at leisure.

Fish River Canyon, Kalahari & Namib Deserts 8-Days

Fish River Canyon, Kalahari & Namib Deserts The Fish River Canyon, Namib and Kalahari deserts all have their own surreal landscapes: The rippling vegetated dunes of the Kalahari Desert; the majestic Fish River Canyon – part of the succulent Nama Karoo; the huge dunes and valleys (vlei’s) of the Namib Desert.  This tour provides unequalled, often lunarlike terrains. NOTE: You can depart from Johannesburg by adding an addition that includes one-night accommodation in Windhoek before this tour departs, return airport transfers in Windhoek and return flights from Johannesburg. When booking your tour, merely add the extra called Johannesburg Departure to your booking.   DAY 1.  KALAHARI DESERT Leaving Windhoek, we commence on this exciting Fish River Canyon, Namib & Kalahari Desert and travel into the largest sand mass on Earth, the Kalahari Desert. The landscape is sand dunes held by thorn scrub and the most extensive continuous stretch of sand covering 9 countries. Lacking permanent surface water, the Kalahari is a challenging place to live except for those who have adapted to flourish here. The Bushmen refer to it as the “Soul of the World”, an emotive description for this area! With its deep red dunes and endless grass plains interspersed with acacia’s and shrubs, it is still home to a surprisingly large amount of specially adapted wildlife. Experience the red dunes, wildlife and plants in this desert environment on an optional nature drive.  Overnight at the Intu Afrika Collection    DAY 2.   FISH RIVER CANYON We continue south through arid rocky plains and visit the unique quiver tree forest. Here quirky human-made sculptures of scrap metal welcome you. They set a contrast to this serene, timeless space with Quiver trees and aloes growing amongst huge dolerite boulders, stacked mysteriously, the area is also aptly referred to as “Giant’s Playground”.
