Day 1

Kalahari Anib Lodge

Kalahari Anib Lodge Gondwana Collection Namibia

The Kalahari Basin covers most of Botswana and large parts of Namibia and South Africa. The name Kalahari means 'the great thirst' and describes the world’s largest continuous area of sand. It is an exceptionally beautiful semi-desert. In Namibia it is characterised by red dunes, acacia trees and wispy, mostly golden grass. The wide variety of wildlife includes gemsbok, impala, jackal and cheetah, not to forget the famous Meerkat. In all three countries the Kalahari is the last bastion of ... the indigenous San people who lived as hunter-gatherers in the whole of southern Africa before the modern world started to take over. Kalahari Anib Lodge lies like a lush green oasis in the midst of red Kalahari dunes. The restaurant and chalets are arranged around a shaded courtyard with a large swimming pool. 36 rooms with a private veranda are available for tour groups. For individual travellers there are 19 rooms, set slightly apart, with views of the open savannah and with a separate swimming pool. Located about 30 km northeast of Mariental the lodge makes for a perfect stopover on the way south.

Day 2-3

Namib Desert Camping2Go

Namib Desert Camping2Go

Located in Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei is famous for its setting amidst the iconic red dunes of the Namib. The clear blue skies contrasting with the towering dunes make this one of the most scenic natural wonders of Africa and a photographer's dream. At up to 400 metres high, some of the ‘mountains of sand’ are among the highest in the world. In the morning and evening light the dunes come alive with amazing displays of colour that draw photography ... enthusiasts from around the globe. Sossusvlei is home to a variety of desert wildlife including gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and various reptiles. This awe-inspiring destination is the second-most visited attraction in Namibia. Activities: Climb 'Big Daddy', one of Sossusvlei’s tallest dunes; explore neighbouring Deadvlei, a dazzling white clay pan dotted with ancient fossilised camel thorn trees; take a scenic flight across the Namib Sand Sea or a hot air balloon trip followed by a once-in-a-lifetime champagne breakfast amidst the majestic dunes. Going back to one’s roots has never been easier as with Camping2Go. After spending an unforgettable day in the desert with the remarkable sights of Sossusvlei and the Sesriem Canyon, it is time to unwind. Relax around a cosy campfire at night with loved ones while listening to the call of the hyena. The sounds of nature will lull you to sleep. Wake up to the most spectacular sunrise setting the fossilised dunes ablaze. A total of eight permanent tents, only a stone’s throw away from the Namib Desert Lodge, have been set up for travellers’ convenience. The tents located at the foot of the fascinating fossilised dunes are fully equipped, each with four beds and an en-suite bathroom with a shower. With the fully kitted out kitchen that includes a fridge, stove, sink and all the necessary cooking utensils and cutlery on the outside terrace, it is a hassle-free way of being immersed in nature. There is an outside braai, as well as a fire pit that you can place it in the nearby riverbed to fully enjoy nature’s music.

Day 4-5

The Delight Swakopmund

The Delight Swakopmund

In 1892, eight years after South West Africa was declared a German Protectorate, Swakopmund was founded with the intention to build a harbour. By 1907 a little town pulsating with life had emerged from the desert! Swakopmund boasted the largest European population of all the German colonies in Africa. Decades on and much bigger now, the charming town is as alluring as ever. The mix of Namibian influences with picturesque buildings from the colonial era, palm-lined streets and seaside promenades, ... the laid-back holiday atmosphere plus the cool sea breeze make Swakopmund one of the most attractive places in the country. Despite the turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean on its doorstep and the Namib Desert as its backyard, Swakopmund is not a tropical sunbathing paradise, however. The moderate climate along the coast is due to the cold Benguela Current. The current also causes the nightly fogs for which the town is famous and which sustain the wealth of desert flora and fauna near the coast. Early mornings and the evenings can be chilly throughout the year – a welcome respite from the inland heat. Swakopmund has become the country’s adventure mecca. The desert, the dunes and the ocean lend themselves to a host of thrilling activities: sandboarding, sand skiing, quad biking, dune carting, beach angling and deep sea fishing, to name but a few, and not to forget parachuting. There is no shortage of diverse shops, bistros and restaurants. Small specialist shops sell hand-made leather work, art & crafts, hand-woven carpets and wall hangings, hand-embroidered bed and table linen and other items proudly made in Namibia. Superb jewellery, designed and crafted with local gemstones by master goldsmiths, are another special feature of Swakopmund. Activities other than fun in the sand and the sea: visit the art galleries and buy contemporary Namibian art and crafts; visit the museum to learn about Swakopmund’s history; join a tour of Karakulia Weavers and watch karakul wool being spun and woven into wall hangings and rugs; admire the world's largest quartz crystal cluster and other mineral treasures at the Kristall Galerie. The Delight Swakopmund is located at the corner of Theo-Ben Guriab Avenue and Nathaniel Maxuilili Street in Swakopmund. Amongst the town’s captivating contrasts and old traditions, Gondwana’s Delight is a fresh breeze in the desert. A refreshing, relaxing, modern, light and airy establishment to uplift and inspire. Effortless and comfortable, with the distinctively warm and welcoming Gondwana service and charm, your stay is always a memorable experience.

Day 6

Damara Mopane Lodge

Damara Mopane Lodge

This vast arid landscape is among the most beautiful regions in Namibia. Untamed, rugged and exceptionally scenic, it features open plains, ancient valleys, impressive mountains and spectacular rock formations. Apart from Spitzkoppe and Brandberg there is Vingerklip, a lone rock stack (35 m high) in the Ugab Valley east of Khorixas, the former ‘capital of Damaraland’. West of the small town is Twyfelfontein, a huge open-air gallery of prehistoric rock engravings. The Petrified Forest, the cluster of basalt columns called ... Organ Pipes and the Burnt Mountain are found in the same area. Damaraland is also famous for its Black rhino population, desert-adapted elephants and lions as well as a host of other wildlife. Activities: Join guided drives & nature walks; go rhino-tracking with a guide; visit local communities and the Living Museum of the Damara. Built in the wattle and daub style under Mopane trees and connected by a labyrinth of paths, the main building and chalets of the lodge look like an African village. The walls are adorned by copies of the rock engravings at Twyfelfontein. Each of the 60 double-room chalets (with air conditioning) sits in a vegetable and herb garden surrounded by a low wall. The gardens supply fresh ingredients for supper, which consists of a starter followed by a delicious buffet. There is a swimming pool for chilling out and a viewing point for relishing sunsets. The lodge at the gates of Damaraland is ideally suited for excursions to Twyfelfontein (130 km), the Petrified Forest (70 km) and the Vingerklip rock pillar (50 km).

Day 7-8

Etosha Safari Camping2Go

Etosha National Park

Etosha National Park in the central north is world-famous for its abundance of wildlife and premiere game viewing opportunities. The park is home to 114 species of mammals, including elephants, black rhinos, lions and other big cats and predators, giraffes, various antelopes and zebras, as well as hundreds of species of birds and reptiles. The vegetation ranges from dense bush to open plains with semi-arid savannah grasslands. During the dry season and in times of drought, the animals flock to ... the perennial springs and artificial waterholes which are maintained all over the park. Etosha Pan in the heart of the nature reserve is a vast shallow depression of 5000 kilometres2 that can even be seen from space. The huge salt pan is dry for most of the year and lies shimmering in the heat, but after good rains it fills up with water and attracts scores of birds, especially flamingos from as far away as the Walvis Bay Lagoon on the Atlantic coast. The western reaches of Etosha are quite different from its south-eastern and eastern parts. Even the characteristic white dust of the pan gives way to reddish-brown soil. The hills of western Etosha are the realm of Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra. Located 10 km south to the Etosha National Park, Gondwana Collection Etosha Safari Camping2Go is home to eight self-catering tents. Each tent is equipped with four beds, an en-suite bathroom and shower while the safari tent facilities include a fully equipped kitchen, veranda, grill and a fire pit. Guests staying at the Camping2Go site can enjoy a cosy evening around the fire pit, or experience an evening of live music at the Oshebeena Bar at the Etosha Safari Camp or indulge in a delicious meal at Okambashu Restaurant. Guests are invited to partake in activities which includes game drives or simply absorb the African sun while lounging a the swimming pool.
