Itinerário:
Day 1: Windhoek — Kalahari Desert (D)
Begin your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Windhoek hotel, and then enjoy a scenic drive south through the town of Rehoboth toward your lodging in the Kalahari Desert. From your open-air vehicle, watch the sunset bathe the mountains, open plains and desert in orange and red hues.

About four hours later, arrive at your comfortable lodging, located at the edge of the desert, and dine under the thatch roof or the stars.

Overnight: Kalahari Anib Lodge or similar 3-star lodging

Day 2: Kalahari Desert — Quiver Tree Forest — Fish River (B, D)
After breakfast, pack your things and set out to explore the Kalahari Desert. More a semi-arid sandy savanna than a true desert, the desert spans 350,000 square miles (900,000 sq km) and covers much of eastern and southern Namibia.

Drive by plains of straw-yellow grass and red dunes, and visit the picturesque Quiver Tree Forest, located about nine miles (14 km) north of the town of Keetmanshoop. With forked branches and a stout trunk, the quiver tree grows about 30 feet (9 meters) tall. Also called ‘kokerboom’, the quiver tree is an aloe plant, whose pliable bark was used by tribesmen to make arrow quivers.

Stop for lunch in Keetmanshoop (own expense) and head south for about an hour to enjoy a brief stop at the lovely Naute Dam, a gathering spot for many water birds. Take an easy stroll up a nearby mountain and sip an included drink while admiring the sunset.

Relaxed, climb back into the vehicle and continue south to your lodging near Fish River. On arrival, about 90 minutes later, dig into a hearty dinner before sinking into your comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep.

Overnight: Cañon Roadhouse or similar 3-star lodging

Day 3: Fish River Canyon — Namib Desert — Aus (B, D)
Enjoy an early breakfast, gather your belongings and depart for the gate at Hobas Camp Site, the northernmost entrance into Fish River Canyon, located near the lower part of the river. The second largest canyon in the world, after the Grand Canyon in Arizona, Fish River Canyon is more than 1,800 feet (550 meters) deep, 17 miles (27 kilometers) wide and 99 miles (160 kilometers) long.

Walk along the canyon’s serrated ridges and, as the sun rises, watch the canyon light up in shades of gold and orange and swallows dive into shadowed chasms.

Head north to the Namib Desert and up into the mountains to the village of Aus for lunch (own expense). To the west of Aus, look for dark, wild horses that have adapted to the unforgiving terrain here; their origin remains unclear but roughly 150 of them roam the golden-grass plains.

Then, enjoy free time to take in more amazing desert and mountain landscapes on a walk through the Aus Mountains. Late in the afternoon, hop back into the vehicle and enjoy a scenic drive in the area. As you travel, watch the sun slip behind the horizon and perhaps sip a refreshing drink (own expense).

End the day feasting on an excellent dinner and then spend the night at safari-style lodging in the Aus Mountains.

Overnight: Desert Horse Inn or similar 3-star lodging

Day 4: Aus — Duwisib Castle — Maltahöhe (B, D)
With your luggage ready to go, tuck into breakfast and head north to the Maltahöhe region; weather permitting, your route includes road D707, known for exceptionally stunning desert vistas. Marvel at the constantly changing landscapes, including views of the ochre-colored Koichab dunes and plum-colored Tira Mountains, as well as the ostrich, springbok and oryx that dot the plains.

Encounter an unusual sight in Namibia and visit Duwisib Castle, a medieval-style fortress in southwestern Maltahöhe that was built in 1908 by a German baron and his wife, with most of the materials imported from Germany. The baron died in France during World War I, after which his wife never returned to Africa. Today, the castle is a national monument. Some say that the descendants of their thoroughbreds are the wild horses of the Namib Desert, although this has not been proven.

In the late afternoon, settle in at your comfortable safari lodge in the Maltahöhe region and enjoy dinner.

Overnight: Hammerstein Lodge & Rest Camp or similar 3-star lodging

Day 5: Maltahöhe — Sossusvlei — Sesriem Canyon — Naukluft Mountains (B, D)
Fuel yourself with breakfast, pack your suitcase and depart early for Sossusvlei in a 4x4 vehicle. Located in the heart of Namib Desert, Sossusvlei is a salt and clay pan more than 186 miles (300 km) long and 87 miles (140 km) wide. Iron-rich sand dunes, shaped by the wind and believed to have formed about five million years ago, envelop this pan and soar as high as 984 feet (300 meters), among the highest in the world.

After exploring the ancient Sossusvlei dunes, continue on to Sesriem Canyon, one of the few spots in the desert that holds water all year long. The canyon’s name derived out of practical necessity: it took six or ‘ses’ leather straps made out of oryx hide, called ‘riem’, tied together to create a rope long enough to reach the canyon bottom and collect water into buckets.

Delve into its mostly dry gorge carved by the Tsauchab River and watch your step in this rocky, narrow pass, as the distance between the two canyon walls sometimes spans only nine feet (three meters).

Back in the vehicle, drive northeast and pass the spectacular Naukluft Mountains. You may catch glimpses of zebras, kudu, baboons and klipspringer on the rocky outcrops and among olive trees.

Have dinner and spend the night in peaceful safari lodging located just outside Namib-Naukluft National Park.

Overnight: Namib Naukluft Lodge or similar 3-star lodging

Day 6: Naukluft Mountains — Walvis Bay — Swakopmund (B, D)
Time to head to the coast! After eating breakfast and gathering your belongings, drive north through the Kuiseb Canyon and reach the beautiful harbor town of Walvis Bay. Its plankton-rich waters used to attract Southern right whales, giving the town its name, ‘Whale Bay.’

After lunch (own expense), visit the Walvis Bay Lagoon. Note the dramatic backdrop of sand dunes and observe plenty of sea birds including flamingos, terns and pelicans.

Travel 30 minutes north to Namibia’s largest coastal city, Swakopmund, and enjoy views of the dune belt on one side and on the other, the Atlantic Ocean. As you arrive at your accommodation for the night, notice right away the city's German origins from the German colonial and half-timbered buildings abound.

Meander through this bustling city, or take a trip to Moon Landscape (own expense) and watch the sun set over the stark mountain range created by Damara granite pushing upward through the earth’s crust over millions of years.

Enjoy dinner at your accommodation in Swakopmund before turning in for the night.

Overnight: Brigadoon Guesthouse or similar 3-star lodging

Day 7: Swakopmund — Okahandja — Windhoek (B)
After breakfast and packing your bags, spend a leisurely morning strolling through the seaside promenades of Swakopmund, or lounge on the beach.

Have an early lunch here (own expense) before traveling inland to the picturesque town of Usakos, surrounded by mountains, and Karibib, located along the Khan River.

Enjoy a short stop at Okahandja, referred to as the ‘Garden Town of Namibia’, and perhaps purchase one-of-a-kind souvenirs of your Namibian odyssey at the well-known craft market.

After your time in Okahandja, arrive back in Windhoek by late afternoon. Your tour then finishes with a drop-off at your centrally located hotel.
