Overview

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS OF THE NAMIBIA SELF-DRIVE TOUR

WINDHOEK
There are a variety of highlights that can be seen in Windhoek during a Namibian safari. One such highlight is the Alte Festung, or the ‘old fortress’. Once the military headquarters of Windhoek, it stands today as a state museum and retains the title as the oldest building in Windhoek, with foundations that were laid in 1890.

ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK
Etosha means ‘huge white area’ or ‘place of dry water’, and the National Park certainly lives up to this description! It’s a vast shallow pan, which shines brightly in the African sun due to crystallized salt on the surface of the ground. The Etosha National Park features several waterholes that provide some of the best game viewing opportunities during the dry season, when the surrounding lands are dry and arid.

DAMARALAND
Bordered by Windhoek, the Kalahari Desert, the Namib Desert and Ovamboland, Damaraland is a unique Namibian attraction to witness whilst on safari with Jenman. It contains some of the most scenic areas in the country, and a Namibian safari to Damaraland will brings tourists into the company of desert elephants, black rhinos, ostriches and springbok.

SWAKOPMUND
When it comes to having fun, you’ll be able to choose from an exciting range of activities to enjoy whilst on your Namibian safari in Swakomund! From sandboarding to quad biking, fishing to beach angling and diving to hot air ballooning, there is something for everyone no matter your age!

SOSSUSVLEI
The Sossusviei area is fed by a river called the Tsuachab River – the dunes actually prevent the entire pathway of this river. The Tsuachab River only flows right through Sossusvlei every 5 to 10 years, making it a rare sight to see.The Sossusvlei dunes are about 6 0km from the Sesriem gate which is about an hours drive.

Experience the milking ceremony and the smoke bath, and learn about their beliefs surrounding the holy fire, their ancestors and herbal medicine. Continue on to the town of Omaruru where you stay overnight. Once a mission station, the settlement has great historic significance and has evolved into an artistic hub for local crafts and small industries.

Day 07-08 Swakopmund

After breakfast, continue to Spitzkoppe – an iconic group of curved, granite mountains with vivid colours. We suggest taking a walk amongst the boulders to view the ancient Bushmen paintings and engravings. After this, continue south west from the dry interior of Namibia to the charming coastal town of Swakopmund. Here you will have the opportunity to partake in the many optional activities on offer. Alternatively, just soak up the atmosphere of this quaint German town and enjoy its beauty and beaches. In the evening, perhaps enjoy a typical Namibian meal in one of the many restaurants (own expense).

Day 09-10 Sossusvlei

An early morning start takes you from Swakopmund south through Walvis Bay on your way to the Namib Naukluft National Park. On the way there why not make a stop at the small settlement of Solitaire where you will have a chance to sample their world renowned Apple Crumble. That evening you have the opportunity to embark on a wild cat walk at the lodge. The next morning it is advisable to wake up early in order to visit the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. We also recommend a stop to view the Sesriem Canyon, which was carved millions of years ago by the Tsauchab River.
