Explore the Namib Desert and Etosha National Park on a multi-day tour adventure from Windhoek with accommodation and meals included. Be impressed by the Sossusvlei dunes, have a mesmerizing experience at the Etosha Pan, and get up-close to animals on exciting game drives. Day 1: Windhoek to Sossusvlei Depart from your Windhoek accommodation in the morning and drive through the surrounding mountains. Pass over the Eros Mountains and through the Khomas Highland region to a grassy desert savannah landscape. Stop at Solitaire for gas and a break before continuing on to your lodging in the southern part of the Namib Desert, near Sossusvlei, for an early afternoon arrival. Be greeted by a glamping-style tent camp, situated on a hillside with breathtaking views across the desert, and also have lunch. Enjoy use of the swimming pool, dining area, and a stocked bar during your stay. Explore the area around the camp before sunset, when the colors glow and change on the distant mountains to the east. Then have dinner served in the lodge. Day 2: Sossusvlei Have an early start to catch the soft light of a desert sunrise. Depart the camp and pass through Sesriem to continue towards Sossusvlei. Watch as the sand dunes rise along both sides of the road and be impressed by towering red dunes, some of which are the highest in the world, over white plains. Stop at the famous Dune 45, a star dune that is over 170 meters tall. Those who feel fit enough to climb the dune will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding Namibian desert. Afterward, eat breakfast and take a desert walk with the chance to see gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals, and ostriches.

Visit a number of waterholes and stop to view the Etosha Pan. Be hypnotized by the expansive salt pan and witness shimmering mirages. Have the chance to see large herds of game in this unique setting. Afterward, stop at Halali to have lunch and continue on to Namutoni. At Namutoni, relax at the swimming pool or waterhole before a late afternoon game drive. Be prepared for an exciting experience with a likelihood of getting up-close views of springboks, zebras, impalas, giraffes, gemsboks, and plenty of birds. You might also see elephants and lions. In the evening unwind with a glass of wine and sunset from the tower of the old Namibian German fort before dinner. Day 6: Etosha National Park to Windhoek After a morning game drive and the opportunity to take some more pictures of Etosha's wildlife in the morning light, head back to Windhoek.
