Etosha National Park & Surrounds
Depart for a sunrise game drive in Etosha National Park. Return to camp for breakfast and then head out again to spend more time exploring the vast wilderness region. The afternoon is spent visiting the iconic Etosha Pan and continuing on a game drive in search of the Big 4. Arrive at Okaukuejo late afternoon and leave Etosha National Park as the sun is setting.
Drive through the communal lands of Damaraland, stopping at the Ugab River Bridge to visit the beautiful Herero ladies who run a small arts and crafts centre. Arrive late afternoon in the quaint seaside town of Swakopmund. Book into your accommodation and spend the last few hours of the day exploring this historic town on foot.
