After landing in Windhoek, you'll transfer to Otjiwarongo, where depending on your arrival time, you'll visit a local craft market. After an overnight stay, you'll head to Etosha National Park, stopping at a traditional Himba Village on the way (an extra charge of around £20 per person to enter the village is payable on arrival). When you arrive in Etosha, you'll go for a game drive to spot the Big Five: lions, leopards, rhinoceroses, elephants and Cape buffaloes.
The next day, you'll have another chance to look out for wildlife during a full-day game drive. You'll set off in a 4x4 safari vehicle in search of the 114 species of mammals and 340 species of birds in the park.
On day four, you'll depart for the desert landscapes of Damaraland, where you'll stay in a tented camp. You'll stop off to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, to see its ancient rock engravings, and the fossilised tree trunks of the Petrified Forest.
The next stop on the tour is the coastal city of Swakopmund, which is known for its charming half-timbered buildings, built by German colonists in the 1890s. On the way there, you'll visit the settlement of Uis, and continue along the coast to the Cape Cross Seal Reserve to meet the friendly seals of the Cape Cross colony. You'll then have free time in Swakopmund to explore at your own pace.
After this, you'll visit Sossusveli, which is often referred to as a photographer's paradise because of its awe-inspiring red sand dunes. You'll pass through Namib Naukluft Park and stay in the Naukluft Mountains, home to mountain zebras and leopards. The next morning, you'll go on an excursion to the Sesriem Canyon, home to breathtaking rock formations.
The last stop on the trip will be Windhoek, where you'll have some free time to explore the cathedrals, gardens and German castles of Namibia's capital before your flight home.
