Day 1 - Swakopmund
Today is your chance to experience the adrenalin filled atmosphere that Swakopmund offers. Taking a walk around Swakopmund’s shops and having a leisurely lunch is also a great way to spend your day if you are not participating in the many activities available on offer here.
Day 2 - Sesriem
After the adventure and adrenaline rush of Swakopmund, we drive south into the mysterious Namib Desert. We will be joined by a local expert on a guided walk and learn more about the unique desert ecosystem and how the bushmen survived in the harsh desert conditions. Tonight we enjoy dinner around the campfire, do a little star gazing and listen to the calls of the jackals and barking geckos.
Day 3 - Sossusvlei Dunes
Today is our earliest start as we wake before dawn for one of the highlights of the trip, hiking up Dune 45 to watch the sun rise. After our hike, we will have the chance to explore Sossusvlei and relax at camp before taking a short hike into Sesriem Canyon.
Day 4 - Fish River Canyon
Today we travel south to the Fish River Canyon where we hike along the edge of the canyon and see the amazing sunset. (It is possible that you may see the sunrise at the canyon the next morning instead due to the road conditions or time of year you are travelling).
Day 5 - Gariep / Orange River
We leave early on our last day in Namibia travelling south to the border with South Africa at the Gariep / Orange River.
Our campsite lies on the banks of the Orange River on the South African side. In the afternoon there is an optional canoeing activity on the River or you can just chill out at the campsite and go for a swim.
Day 6 - Citrusdal
Today is a long drive through the Northern Cape to the fruit producing area in the Cederberg Mountains of South Africa.
Day 7 - Cape Town 2014
Our final day on tour, we head to the mother city, Cape Town. Before departure we will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided hike in the Cederberg region.
