Tour Description

7 Day Southern Kalahari & Namib Desert Explorer

What to expect

A land where the desert meets the ocean and the colours of the landscape are as rich and diverse as the ancient peoples who live there, Namibia is an explorer’s paradise. Home to an astonishing variety of free-roaming animals which have adapted to the harsh conditions in which they live and the place of some of Africa’s most iconic images, Namibia is well worth exploring.

Our 7-Day Southern Kalahari & Namib Desert Explorer Guided Tour takes you on a journey through Namibia’s desert regions in the south, each stop along the way offering an experience like no other. From the seemingly endless, semi-arid savannahs of the Kalahari Desert to the ancient, towering red dunes of Sossusvlei and iconic petrified trees of Dead Vlei, the tour concludes in Swakopmund where the Namib Desert is met by the Atlantic Ocean

Day 1 & Day 2

Kalahari Desert | Africa Safari Lodge | 2 Nights Dinner, Bed & Breakfast

Your English-speaking guide will collect you from your hotel in Windhoek. After a brief sightseeing tour of the capital city’s landmarks such as the turn-of-the-century Tintenpalast and historically significant Christuskirche, you will make your way southwards via Rehoboth and Kalkrand to the Kalahari Desert region. A vast, semi-arid, sandy savannah that covers much of neighbouring Botswana, regions of South Africa and parts of Namibia, the Kalahari Desert is home to a wide range of free-roaming wildlife such as the black-maned Kalahari lion, Oryx, giraffe, warthog and the delightful meerkat. After you check in to Africa Safari Lodge, your accommodation for the next two nights, you will embark on your first game drive. Dinner will be served in the lodge restaurant after you have returned from your Sundowner Game Drive. Afterwards, you can gather around the crackling fire in the Boma with the other guests to chat or simply stargaze.

Recommendations for Day 2

Day 2 sees you rising early for your second game drive. Dawn in the Kalahari is a magical time of day when the desert animals, birds and insects rise with the sun. You can expect to encounter blue wildebeest, zebra, and various antelope species. Breakfast is served after you return from your Sunrise Game Drive. The rest of the day can be spent at your leisure, relaxing by the swimming pool, or walking on one of the trails on the property. If you would like to book another optional Sundowner Game Drive for that evening, please speak to your guide.
