15 Day Namibia Circuit

From N$55800 per person

Explore Namibia on a 15 Day Private Guided Safari.

It doesn’t matter how long you plan to give Namibia on your adventure; it just never feels like enough time to cover all corners of the country. However, if you can spare 15 days in the country, choose a private guided Namibian safari and cover the highlights of Namibia from the far south of the Fish River Canyon to the wilderness of Damaraland and the wildlife haven of Etosha National park. Enjoy the chance to stretch your legs while enjoying short hikes, exploring historical areas such as Kolmanskop Ghost Town & the UNESCO World Heritage site of Twyfelfontein, enjoy the cultural diversity meeting the Himba, Herero & Damara people while enjoying some of the countries most breathtaking landscapes and incredible wildlife areas.

Staying in mid-range accommodation, with a focus on location, service and quality, you are sure to enjoy each destination. For those looking for a little more (or less) luxury, let us know as we can amend all accommodation depending on your desired level of luxury.

Let your guide do all the hard work, driving, planning the day, as well as sharing their wealth of local information with you. You can sit back, relax and absorb the incredible sights, people and experiences. Covering approximately 5000kms in just 2 weeks, it’s worth letting someone else do the driving!

However, for those looking for more flexibility or wishing to keep the budget in check, then check out our selection of self-drive safaris to see how much of the country you can cover while exploring on your own.

Day 1: Windhoek Luxury Suites, Windhoek
On arrival at Windhoek International Airport, we will meet our guide and make our way into Windhoek. Depending on our arrival, there may be time for an afternoon City & Township Tour before sunset.

Day 2: Kalahari Desert
We depart Windhoek this morning after breakfast, no later than 9h00, as we head south out of the capital and into the Kalahari. Today's drive is relatively short and easy, and we aim to arrive around lunchtime, so we have time to enjoy lunch and settle in before heading out on an afternoon nature drive to explore the surrounding area.

Included activities: Sundowner drive
Distance travelled: ±500kms

Day 5: Eagles Rock, Klein Aus Vista
Yet another early start today as we do a day visit to Luderitz and the infamous ghost town of Kolmanskop. Explore the small coastal town of Luderitz and perhaps opt to join a short boat cruise to Halifax Island to see the African Penguins before heading out to Kolmanskop, a once prosperous village, is now Namibia’s most famous ghost town after the local diamond field became depleted in 1956. On return to Klein Aus, keep eyes peeled for the famed desert horses of the Namib, a small population of desert-adapted feral horses that have defied all odds to survive the harsh conditions of the Southern Namib Desert.

Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Included activities: Day visit to Luderitz & guided tour to Kolmanskop

Day 6: Desert Camp, Namib Desert
We hit the road early for another long but scenic drive today north into the Namib Desert. Depending on our route, we will experience a range of different but equally breathtaking landscapes from mountains to deserts before arriving in the Sesriem area mid-afternoon, where we can take in our first Namib Desert sunset.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Desert Camp
Meals: Breakfast & Dinner

Day 7: Desert Camp, Namib Desert
A very early start this morning for an excursion to Sossusvlei. Aim to leave camp just before sunrise to be one of the first vehicles to enter the park when the gates open. The drive from Sesriem to the heart of the dunes is approx. 60kms and this drive alone offers some incredible opportunities for photography. On arrival in the 4x4 car park, begin to explore this area on foot, with a walk around Dead Vlei and Sossusvlei, and for the adventurous, a hike up Big Daddy, the tallest dune in the region, offering breathtaking views of the sand sea that is the Namib Desert. By midday, make your way back towards Sesriem with a stop at Sesriem Canyon, a small but important landmark for both the human and animal residents of the area.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Desert Camp
Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Included activities: Guided excursion to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei, Dune 45 & Sesriem Canyon
Optional activities: Afternoon quadbiking excursion
Distance travelled: ±120kms

Day 8: Swakopmund Sands Hotel, Skeleton Coast
Today's drive takes us through to Swakopmund via the Gaub and Kuiseb passes. The first official stop is Solitaire, a small but important outpost for tourists and locals alike and a popular place to stop enjoy some more unusual photographic opportunities. From Solitaire, we continue through the ever-changing desert landscapes before arriving in Walvis Bay, the main harbour in Namibia. Here we take the opportunity to visit the Walvis Bay Lagoon, a RAMSAR listed wetland site, famous as the feeding ground for many bird species, including the Greater & Lesser Flamingos and the endemic Damara Tern, amongst others, making it an ornithologist paradise. From Walvis Bay, it’s just a short drive to Swakopmund, where we will spend the next two nights.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Swakopmund Sands Hotel
Meals: Breakfast
Included activities: Stops at Solitaire, Tropic of Capricorn, Walvis Bay Lagoon
Optional activities: Quad biking, scenic flight and more
Distance travelled: ±350kms

Day 9: Swakopmund Sands Hotel, Skeleton Coast
Today is a free day and the chance to explore at our own pace. For some, this will mean joining a boat cruise in Walvis Bay, where we have a good chance to see some seals and dolphins. For others, this will mean a morning of sandboarding before exploring the dunes on a quad bike or enjoying a scenic flight before skydiving. For others, it might be something a little more calm as a leisurely breakfast, a visit to the aquarium before an afternoon scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast. Swakopmund is the adventure capital of Namibia, and there is certainly something to satisfy everyone. The town itself, an unusual mix of German and Namibian culture, offers a relaxed and walkable town centre to enjoy at our own pace. There are good restaurants in both towns, with seafood, of course, being a specialty.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Swakopmund Sands Hotel
Meals: Breakfast
Optional activities: Sandwich Harbour excursion, Boat Cruise, Living Desert tour & more
Distance travelled: ±0kmsB

Day 10: Twyfelfontein Adventure Camp, Damaraland
Starting the day early, we drive north along the Skeleton Coast this morning. Heading north up to Henties Bay, we make our first stop to see the most recent shipwreck to fall victim to the Benguela current, The Zeila. From here, we head inland into Damaraland and have the chance to stop and meet the people that call this area home, from the Himba to the Herero and, of course, the Damara people. We arrive late afternoon at our camp in the heart of Damaraland and have the chance to enjoy an epic Damaraland sunset.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Twyfelfontein Adventure Camp

A full day today to explore Damaraland. We start the morning with a leisurely breakfast before heading through to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Twyfelfontein, the worlds largest collection of rock etchings.

Day 12: Okaukuejo/Halali, Etosha National Park
After breakfast, we head east to Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s premier game reserves, home to some 340 species of birds, mammals, reptiles, and even 1 species of fish. On arrival at the park gate, we game drive through to our lodge for the night, stopping at the waterhole after waterhole seeing what we can find.

Day 13: Okaukuejo/Halali, Etosha National Park
Today, a full day to explore Etosha National Park, to game drive either morning & afternoon, or head out across the park for a full day, visit the famous Etosha Pan (where the park gets its name). Etosha stretches some 22,000km², and the pan is so big it can be seen from space. Photography opportunities around Etosha’s waterholes can be some of southern Africa's best. Due to a lack of natural waterholes and rivers, wildlife congregates together, and the chance to capture both prey & predators around the waterhole together is not uncommon. In addition to this, Halali offers excellent floodlit waterholes at the camp so we can enjoy the chance to watch the animals well into the night if we wish.

Accommodation: Private rooms with en-suite bathroom at Okaukuejo/Halali inside Etosha National Park
Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
Included activities: Full day game drive inside Etosha National Park
