Etosha National Park is renowned as one of the best game reserves in Africa, a haven for wildlife, and supports one of the most important ecological and wildlife systems on the continent. At 22,270 km sq this huge park hosts an impressive collection of game including the white rhino and endangered black rhino, lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, giraffe and numerous species of antelope as well as an impressive 340 species of birds - enough to keep any nature and wildlife enthusiast happy.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Halali, Etosha National Park.

We depart from Backpackers Lodge, Windhoek 08 h 00. We stop briefly at Otjiwarongo and enjoy a light lunch pack “on the move” before entering Etosha National Park through the Anderson Gate. We enjoy an afternoon game drive through the park visiting waterholes looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephant, rhino and many different species of antelope. We arrive at our lodge just before sunset and settle into our rooms, with en-suite bathroom and tea/coffee facilities. We highly recommend spending time at the floodlit waterhole while dinner is prepared by your guide over an open fire and an early night is recommended.(LD)

Day 2: Taleni Etosha Village, just outside Etosha National Park.

We start our first game drive at sunrise to catch the predators while they are still active, visiting many waterholes and return to Halali for breakfast. Our second game drive mid morning takes us to the impressive Etosha Pan “great white place” where you can get out of the vehicle and experience this 4500 sq km “saline desert” before continuing your game drive to look for the Big 4. We arrive back at Halali where your guide will prepare you a delicious lunch whilst you have a dip in the pool or relax by the camp waterhole. After lunch you will have a chance to relax before our final game drive across the park towards Okaukuejo calling into some well-known waterholes and leave the park prior to sunset. Accommodation tonight is twin share permanent tents with en-suite bathroom facilities. Dinner is prepared by your guide and another early night is recommended. (B,L,D)

Day 3: Swakopmund.

Enjoy an early morning breakfast and departure from your lodge is at 07:30. Your route today takes you into the dramatic and beautiful scenery of Damaraland. You have the chance to meet the wonderful Herero ladies who sell their handmade arts and crafts to support their rural families. A light roadside lunch is served en-route in the shadow of Namibia's tallest mountain, the Brandberg, and you can interact with some of the colourful local characters who live in this harsh environment.
