1 Arrive Windhoek
Your epic encounter with Namibia kicks off in its capital, Windhoek. On arrival, transfer to your hotel and enjoy time at leisure - play a round of golf on the 18-hole golf course or relax in the swimming pool before meeting your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception and dinner. (WR) Stay: Windhoek Country Club Resort
2 Windhoek – Rehoboth – Kalahari Desert
Embrace the freedom of the open road as we venture into the Kalahari Desert - Namibia's boundless, sandy beauty. We make our way through the historic town of Rehoboth, a former mission station just north of the Tropic of Capricorn, then take our front-row seats on a scenic nature drive through this 'thirst land', where trees loom and rocky shadows stretch out on the horizon against the setting sun. (B/D) Stay: Zebra Kalahari Lodge/Kalahari Anib Lodge
3 Kalahari Desert – Keetmanshoop – Fish River Canyon
See the iconic forest of Quiver Trees - the towering aloes from which the San people fashion their quivers to this day. After a short stop in Keetmanshoop with free time for lunch, travel to Naute Dam before arriving at your motor-themed lodge to savour a spectacular Namibian sunset. (B/D) Stay: Canyon Roadhouse
4 Fish River Canyon – Aus
Peer over the ancient chasm carved by the Fish River to form Africa's largest canyon. Carved over millennia, the Fish River Canyon's gigantic ravine provides sanctuary to klipspringer, zebra and even wild horses. We continue our journey to the spectacular Aus Mountains where you'll spend the afternoon getting close to nature. (B/D) Stay: Desert Horse Inn
5 Aus – Solitaire
Immerse yourself in the Southern Namib region admiring desert vistas and expansive skies as we conquer the open road. We pay a visit to Baron von Wolf's Duwisib Castle to learn about its history as a gift of love for his American wife. Settle in to the comfort of your lodge and spend the afternoon relaxing, before embarking on a nature drive into the desert. (B/D) Stay Two Nights: Namib Desert Lodge
6 Sossusvlei and Deadvlei Excursion
In a country renowned for its epic landscapes, competition for the top spot is tough. But it is Sossusvlei and Deadvlei that rightly deserve this crown and it is where we begin our adventure today. Gaze up at the towering Dune 45, then meander into the eerie but beautiful photographers' paradise of Deadvlei, to snap iconic photos of dead camel thorn trees on a bed of white clay pans, perfectly framed by towering sand dunes and clear blue skies. Your early morning adventure in Sossusvlei complete, travel on to explore the ravine walls of the Sesriem Canyon, carved out by the Tsauchab River. (B/D)
7 Solitaire – Swakopmund
After breakfast, we drive to the German-inspired seaside town of Swakopmund with its colonial buildings and encroaching desert. (B) Stay Two Nights: The Delight
8 Swakopmund At Leisure
During your free time perhaps consider joining an Optional Experience catamaran wildlife cruise in Walvis Bay in search of the marine 'Big 5'. Or make the most of your free time by sampling Black Forest cake and Florentiners at one of the town's quaint German Bäckerei or indulge in some locally brewed Windhoek Lager. Then it's time to 'Connect With Locals' and savour some hearty vetkoek with a Damara family in Swakopmund's Mondesa Township during our 'Be My Guest 'experience, where you'll learn about life in the township. (B/BMG)
9 Swakopmund – Damaraland
Follow Namibia's salt route en route to Damaraland, a place where mysterious flat-topped lava mountains and petrified trees cast shadows across the terracotta-coloured terrain. We make an important stop at Twyfelfontein to admire its ancient rock engravings, then explore the rocky-red Organ Pipes carved into the face of the mountain before arriving at our lodge - one of Trafalgar's 'Stays With Stories'. After settling in to our accommodation, we'll embark on a nature drive on the property. (B/D) Stay: Twyfelfontein Country Lodge
10 Damaraland – Etosha National Park Area
As we journey north, we make a brief stop to visit the Petrified Forest and its unique fossilised tree trunks. Meet the OvaHimba tribe with whom we'll 'Dive Into Culture' to gain insights into their hunter-gatherer traditions that have spanned thousands of years. Your visit will 'Make A Difference' by contributing to funds used for food and other necessities. Despite vast desolate landscapes, Namibia is renowned for its wildlife and there's no better place to encounter the array of animal and birdlife that live within its borders than Etosha National Park. (B/D) Stay Two Nights: Etosha Safari Lodge

13 Depart Windhoek
With our journey at its close, we say goodbye to our new-found friends and transfer to Windhoek airport. Please Note: This Namibia Adventure trip is run on a small group basis. The vehicle operating it will be smaller than a standard coach, relative to the number of guests, and it is standard tour operator practise in Namibia for trips of this group size to have a Driver Guide. Roads in Namibia are a combination of tarmac roads and dirt/gravel roads where dust levels can be higher than in other parts of the world. The Namibian government implements a road maintenance programme but their condition can vary and sometimes journeys can feel less than smooth and rougher than on the tarmac roads. (B)
