6 Day Namibian Loop
Windhoek – Etosha – Swakopmund – Sossusvlei – Windhoek
This safari includes 2 days in Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s premier game reserves and home to 4 of the big 5, as well as more than 340 bird species. Enjoy game drives at your own leisure with your private guide visiting waterhole after waterhole where wildlife congregates in numbers particularly during the dry season.
From Etosha, head south through the communal lands of Damaraland where various of Namibia’s tribes people eek out a living in the harsh desert landscape. The Himba, Herero and Damara call this area home and our drive through this area gives us the opportunity to support them all, stopping along the way for crafts which is a great way to support local communities at a grassroots level.
Enjoy a 1 night stop over in Swakopmund on the Skeleton Coast, and enjoy the chance to explore this quaint little town and dinner out in one of the many restaurants. Swakopmund is also the adventure capital of Namibia and an ideal to try one of the many activities on offer.
The last stop on this 6 night tour brings us to the Namib Desert, the oldest desert in the world and home to some of the worlds largest sand dunes. The iconic landscapes of DeadVlei are something not to be missed with the contrasting bleached clay plan, surrounded by bright orange sand dunes and crisp blue sky framing the shot around the skeletal camelthorn trees that died some 1000+ years ago.

Our trip was wonderful! Everything was super organized by Lark Journeys. The route was explained to us in detail before the trip and we were able to ask any questions to Claire. On our 6 Day Namibian Loop we were able to discover the diversity of Namibia with all the animals, landscapes and cultures. Many thanks to our travel guide Franco, we have made many unforgettable impressions and discovered a lot more than we imagined. We can recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see a lot in a short period of time. Traveling during the coronavirus was not a problem at all, all safety regulations are observed and made available. Thanks again for everything Lark Journeys and we look forward to our next trip.

When a major US tour company cancelled the Namibia segment of our month-long visit to southern Africa, we looked for a Namibian tour operator to set up an itinerary for us. I contacted 4 companies, and Claire at Lark quickly and firmly positioned Lark at the top of our list. We emailed back and forth, often several times per day. She listened to our interests, worked within our constraints and crafted the perfect itinerary for us.
When we arrived in Windhoek, a Lark driver met us and took us to the hotel. Claire met us there and went over our itinerary in fine detail, letting us know what to expect at each stage.
The accommodations she selected were perfect, from city hotels to a tented camp, to a spectacular oasis of a lodge in the middle of nowhere. The food everywhere was fantastic, especially in the most remote places, we don’t know how they do it.
Abel, our driver/guide was the perfect person to show us Namibia. He is smart and articulate with a wry sense of humor. He loved showing is his country, the little bands of wildlife that inhabit the starkly beautiful landscapes, the surprisingly modern cities, the fascinating people. He explained things at just the right level of detail, and was comfortably silent when there was nothing more to say. He made sure that all accommodations were correct and that we were comfortable. He was an excellent driver on the 5 hour journeys over mostly gravel roads. At the end of our trip we felt we knew Able well and had as good an understanding of Namibia as we could expect after only a week.
We love Namibia and a lot of this is thanks to Lark. September 2022
