Castles, trains & sand dunes; romance in Namibia.
On arrival in Namibia you will be transferred from the Windhoek International airport to the beautiful Heinitzburg Castle. Accommodation is is a deluxe pool side room on a bed and breakfast basis. Your first Namibian sunset can be spent enjoying cocktails from the terrace at Heinitzburg overlooking the Windhoek city centre. For dinner tonight there is a good choice of restaurants available in Windhoek, perhaps the best of these is Leo's in the Heinitzburg castle, but we will also be happy to recommend alternative eateries.
After breakfast you will head to Katutura - the former township area of Windhoek. Before independence, Namibia was governed by South Africa and had the same apartheid laws in place. You will spend the morning pedalling around the township, visiting markets and getting to know how the majority of Windhoekers live. It is a fascinating and eye opening experience and not particularly strenuous. We can offer alternative tours in a car if you do not want to ride ... a bike. After the tour, the guide will drop you at the Zoo Cafe in central Windhoek for lunch (at own expense). The Zoo Cafe is situated in the beautiful Zoo Park in central Windhoek. After lunch, you will be taken to the Windhoek Train Station in time to board the Desert Express Train to Swakopmund. The first stop on this luxury train journey is at Okapuka Game Ranch in time for lion feeding. Dinner is served in the Welwitschia Restaurant on-board the Desert Express and consists of a three course meal, with a selection of starters, main courses and desserts. Accommodation: Onboard the Desert Express in a twin-bedded cabin with en suite facilities
After a full English breakfast the train will stop for around an hour, allowing you to explore this part of the Namib Desert. The Desert Express arrives in Swakopmund at around 10h00 and you will be collected and transferred to your hotel. We have left the days in Swakopmund free but we will be happy to book activities for you. You may want to consider a scenic flight over the Skeleton Coast, an oyster breakfast and dolphin cruise from Walvis ... Bay or any one of the additional activities in Swakopmund. While in Swakopmund, you have a choice of excellent sea food restaurants from which to choose. Again, we will be happy to recommend places to eat and assist with bookings.
After breakfast, you will be transferred to the Swakopmund airstrip for your flight to Wolwedans, situated in the heart of NamibRand Nature Reserve. On arrival you will be transferred to the Lodge and spend the rest of the morning at leisure before a light lunch. After a siesta, you'll join an afternoon excursion and return to the lodge for sundowners and dinner.
Absorb the unique NamibRand Nature Reserve landscape during a morning and afternoon excursion by Land Rover through the dunes, endless grassy plains and along mystical mountain formations. You may encounter large and small desert animals; learn about their unique habits; and explore the ancient hunting spots of the Bushmen. Revel in the incredible landscape around you. Wolwedans is committed to caring for guest guest and nature alike. Here, in this land of stretching blue skies, endless plains and ... countless creatures enacting nature's savagely exciting passion play, you will find beauty feeding your soul, tranquillity to clear your mind and space for your imagination to fly! You could also join a day-safari with picnic lunch en-route, arriving back at the lodge for sundowners and dinner. It is also worth considering an early morning balloon flight over the Namib Desert (not included in package price) which offers a birds-eye view of the desert and is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip.
Awaken to the pristine desert dawn and soak in the atmosphere and landscape from your bed, whilst enjoying early morning tea. After a leisurely breakfast, you are transferred to the airstrip to bid Wolwedans farewell. Your flight arrives in Windhoek at noon (12h00). You can fly out tonight or we can book you accommodation in Windhoek and help with further travels through Namibia.
