Windhoek

Windhoek is Namibia’s capital, home to an international airport and a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste (Old Fort), the 1896 Christuskirche (Christ Church), and the more contemporary Supreme Court.

Overnight: Klein Windhoek Guest House

Klein Windhoek Guesthouse is situated in one of Windhoek’s best suburbs in a quiet area next to the Klein Windhoek Riverbed – an ideal location for business people and tourists.

Overnight: Daan Viljoen Game Reserve

Daan Viljoen Nature Reserve in the Khomas Hochland is Namibia's smallest game park. Its convenient location to Windhoek (25km) has proved to be an ideal stopover for individual travellers, families and the business community alike. Visitors enjoy the tranquil 'close to the city' bush experience, an abundance of highland wildlife and the natural actions and rhythms of the dam. The park and resort is open throughout the year from sunrise to sunset. One of Daan Viljoen's great attractions is that visitors are allowed to walk around the park (unlike Etosha and several other Namibian game parks where you are confined to your vehicle) and there are 2 well marked hiking trails. Mountain biking is also allowed and the park is a popular spot for Windhoek's mountain biking fraternity. There is also a small route for those wishing to do some game viewing from the comfort of their vehicles.

Walvis Bay

Walvis Bay (‘Whale Bay’) is a thriving town, Namibia’s principal harbour and one of the country’s most popular tourist centres, known for its natural lagoon, striking orange sand dunes and wealth of outdoor activities, including fishing, bird-watching, sailing, sandboarding, swimming, surfing and golf. Located just outside town is Dune 7, one of the largest sand dunes in the world, offering fantastic views from the crest for those with the energy to climb it.

Overnight: Protea Hotel Walvis Bay

Located in the heart of a vibrant fishing town, Protea Hotel Walvis Bay is the ideal springboard to this fascinating harbor town. From the hotel, you’re just a few minutes from the region’s attractions, which include dune, water-based and outdoor activities, from camel rides and quad biking to hiking, hang gliding and golf on desert courses. It’s a hotel that complements your travel style. Set in a landscape of remarkable juxtaposition, where ancient deserts give way to sparkling oceans and rich wetland expanses, Walvis Bay is one of Namibia’s most popular destinations.

Erongo Mountains

Conveniently located only a few hour’s drive from Namibia’s capital city of Windhoek, the Erongo Mountain range stretches across the plains between the towns of Omaruru and Karibib, and is home to a remarkably rich natural heritage. This expanse of rugged wilderness serves as one of Namibia’s most popular tourist drawcards, attracting visitors with its spectacularly scenic landscapes; magnificent caves and rock painting sites; and its impressive array of wildlife species.

Etosha National Park

The Etosha National Park is Namibia's premiere game viewing experience, situated in the northwest of Namibia and is an area well known for its wildlife. Vegetation ranges from dense bush to open plains attracting a diversity of wildlife. In the heart of the Park is The Etosha Pan - a shallow depression that covers an area of 5000sq kilometres. Dry and shimmering for most of the year, the pans fill up with water after good rains to a depth which is seldom deeper than 1m. In the dry season wildlife is attracted to perennial springs and waterholes that makes for excellent game viewing. Within the park are three large public rest camps catering for the more budget orientated traveller. There are several smaller establishments on the outskirts of the park on private land offering a more intimate and comprehensive experience. All of these establishments offer excellent value for money.

Overnight: Okaukuejo Campsite

Okaukuejo is located 17 km from the southern entrance of the park, Anderson Gate. Okaukuejo is the oldest tourist camp in Etosha and it also functions as the administrative centre of the park. Okaukuejo is also home to the Etosha Ecological Institute. It is situated at the western end of the Etosha Pan. Facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, kiosk and camp sites. The main attraction of this camp is that it overlooks a permanent waterhole which is floodlit at night. Here a wide diversity of wildlife congregate and interact from lion to rhino to elephant and antelope. The spectacle starts at dawn, with animals coming in large numbers to quench their thirst. The activity continues throughout the day until late at night. In the early evenings, it is not uncommon to have black rhino, elephant and lion all drinking at the same time.

Overnight: Mushara Lodge

Located only 8kms from the Von Lindequist Gate on the eastern outskirts of the Etosha National Park, Mushara Lodge is ideally situated for travelers visiting the park. Our Lodge consists of ten spacious chalets, one family unit and two single rooms.

The thatched public area consists of a small library with a selection of good books, a bar with an extensive wine cellar, airy lounge with welcoming fireplace for winter evenings, a dining area and well stocked curio shop.

Waterberg Plateau National Park

Named for the springs that emanate from its foothills, the Waterberg Plateau National Park is a fascinating geological site of compressed sandstone crags, 200-year-old dinosaur footprints, and petrified sand dunes. The area’s natural water sources make it far more fertile than its environs and the park is blessed with a plethora of plant and animal species, including leopards, rhinoceros, vultures, cheetahs, bush babies, ferns and fig trees.

Overnight: Waterberg Plateau Lodge

Situated on a rock terrace high up on the slope of Waterberg, the restaurant and chalets of Waterberg Plateau Lodge afford grand vistas of the endless Kalahari bush savannah below. Each of the double room chalets sits between red sandstone rocks in the midst of green bush, with total privacy guaranteed. Acacias shade the terrace; a plunge pool filled with spring water provides cooling and attracts birds and small game.

The lodge is part of the private nature reserve Waterberg Wilderness, offering a world of experience at the Kalahari's table mountain.

Guests can join guided plateau hikes, honeymoon sundowners, rhino drives, game tracking tours or cultural tours to Hereroland. They can have a walk back into the past on the History Path (battle of Waterberg 1904) and explore the valley of Waterberg Wilderness on five nature trails.
