Off the beaten track in Damaraland

N$50500 per person

If you are wanting to feel alone in the wilderness and appreciate nature for its rugged beauty and sense of peace, then this would be the right itinerary for you. As it is a guided itinerary you can be sure to visit these more unusual places in safety and really make the most of them. Your guide will take you to all his favourite spots and you will definitely be able to stretch your legs on lots of walks around these areas to appreciate them more. A rare luxury for a tour in Namibia where you spend most of your time in a vehicle. Start the tour with a quick safari at Erindi Old Traders Lodge before heading towards the beautiful Spitzkoppe mountain and 4000 year old bushpaintings. From there, the scenery will change from day to day as you travel through Damaraland, a geologist’s dream. The highlight of the tour is the three nights wild camping in the Palmwag Concession, far from all other people. Our team will sent up your camp and you will dine under the stars for an experience you will never forget.

Accommodation: All beautifully situated lodges and guesthouses. The highlight is the luxury wild camping in the heart of the Palmwag concession

Day 2:

Today you head to Erindi Private Game Reserve for your first safari. Erindi is known for its large elephants and lions and also has a large population of rhinos and cheetahs. One of the best places to view them is from your room or the restaurant as they visit the lodge’s waterholes. After lunch and a bit of tea and cake in the afternoon, you will join the afternoon game drive with an Erindi guide in an open safari vehicle.

After a light breakfast you will meet your Erindi guide at the open safari vehicle for your second game drive in Erindi. The reserve’s guides all communicate with each other via radio to make sure you do not miss anything! If you are very lucky you may see Erindi’s pack of wild dogs (Lycaon Pictus), one of few places in Namibia where it is possible to do so. Your guide will then drive you to the beautiful Spitzkoppe mountain. Once you have arrived, he will take you to the bushmen’s paradise, an area with hundreds of bush paintings.

You will then head directly north via the highest mountain in Namibia, Brandberg. Here you will enter one of our favourite regions of Namibia, Damaraland, and the home of Twyfelfontein, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A local guide will show you around this protected collection of hundreds of rock engravings and explain what they mean.

Discuss with your guide if you would like to do one of these.

Back on the rocky roads, today you will travel through many different landscapes and rock formations as you go towards Kaokoland. If you are lucky you may seem some rhinos on the way. Your guide will be able to show off his 4×4 skills through a range of terrains. Hold on for a bumpy ride as you discover the back roads of Africa that most only see from afar. This evening, camp will be set up on the banks of the dry Hoanib river, a favourite spot for elephants to drink in the area.

Once you get back onto an actual road, your guide will take you to the small town of Sesfontein. Get your swimming costume ready as you will go for a picnic and a quick swim in the warm natural springs of Ongongo before continuing to your destination.
Lodge: Camp Aussicht. Basis: FB+

Day 10:

Camp Aussicht is often our client’s favourite place to stay in Nmaibia, partly due to its rugged appeal and location up high in the Kaokoland mountains, but also largely to their host Marius, who built his home and your rooms. This morning you will have the unique experience of visiting a Himba tribe, that Marius has known for over thirty years. We encourage you to talk to the Himbas and ask both them and Marius questions, also share information about your life to encourage conversation both ways.

Day 11:

After a last relaxing morning at Camp Aussicht and a few final photos of the dioptase mine and the views of Kaokoland, you will head to the beautiful Vingerklip lodge. This lodges overlooks the vingerklip, a large rock standing 35m tall. The views are also stunning over the Ugab terraces. Your guide will explain how this unusual rock formation came to be.

Day 12:

Prepare to stretch your legs as this next region is excellent for hiking. The Waterberg plateau has many hiking trails in the national park, some at the foot of the plateau and some going all the way up to the top. Discuss with your guide which will be best for you. You will likely see several small creatures as the plateau is made of porous soft rock which creates many natural springs, and thus green vegetation unlike that you will have seen anywhere else in Namibia.

Day 13:

This morning, enjoy one last walk around the Waterberg. This time, in the private Waterberg Wilderness Reserve, to the end of the valley and a pretty natural water spring. Either relax in the afternoon and prepare your suitcases for the upcoming flight, or enjoy one last sundowner (optional) and see the white rhinoceros in the private reserve of Waterberg Wilderness.
