Itinerary

Day 1 OR Tambo –Windhoek – Otjiwarongo – Etosha National Park (± 400km)

Arrive at OR Tambo International Airport and board on a morning flight to Windhoek, the capital of Namibia. On arrival at Hosea Kutako Windhoek International Airport, you will be welcomed by our Guide and your safari starts right here.

Accommodation is at Okaukuejo Lodge, the administrative centre of Etosha, and famous for its floodlit waterhole in front of the camp resulting in a nonstop game viewing as plethora of animals come to quench their thirst.

In the afternoon, we go out on our first game drive where we will experience Africa’s wildlife up close.

The Etosha National Park spans an area of 22 270 square km, a large part of which is taken up by a vast salt pan. This beautiful barren and often haunting landscape is surprisingly abundant in game, which often congregate around the various waterholes scattered around the park, allowing for some spectacular game viewing. The park is home to hundreds of species of mammals, birds and reptiles, including several threatened and endangered species such as the black rhinoceros. Visitors can expect to see many buck species, elephants, giraffe, rhino and lions. If you are lucky you will see leopard and cheetah. After good rains, the salt pan fills with water attracting a mass of flamingos. More than 340 bird species have been counted in the park.
