Please note

Gravel roads make up more than two-thirds of Namibia’s roads. We suggest renting a 4×4. Since Windhoek, where most rental car companies are located, is 45 kilometers west of Hosea Kutako International Airport, you will need to make arrangements with your rental car company for a transfer from the airport to Windhoek. Alternatively, please contact us, and we will arrange for you to rent a car and move. Rates are available upon request.

Day 1

Meet-and-Greet at Hosea Kutako International Airport – Windhoek Outskirts (40 km)

Your English-speaking Transfer Service will greet you at the Hosea Kutako International Airport, located just 40 kilometers outside of Windhoek, before taking you to the Rental Vehicle Depot. You will receive a detailed vehicle handover at the Depot, including safety and operating instructions.

Following that, you embark on the first leg of your Namibian safari, driving towards the city of Windhoek, which is surrounded by mountains, and then turning off to your lodge for the first night’s stay just outside the city limits. On this short journey, you’re almost guaranteed to see a range of birds and wildlife!

After a long flight, arrive at the cabin, check in, and unwind. Your cozy and cool suites, the expansive balcony, pool area, and bar, as well as the luxurious indoor lounge, all provide space to relax and rejuvenate while taking in the breathtaking view. Mountains and valleys surround the city on three sides, with distant mountains to the west flanking the city limits. The twinkling city lights in the distance will clash with the bright night sky above Windhoek at night – even above the country’s largest city, the stars are clearly visible and a truly amazing sight to behold.

River Crossing Lodge: Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

River Crossing Lodge

Location: River Crossing Lodge offers a serene marriage of blissful, undisturbed nature and comfortable modern amenities. The lodge is located on a pristine 6500 hectare reserve which is home to 19 different species of game, while being only a 5-minute drive from the heart of Windhoek.

Rooms: 20 chalets with en-suite bathrooms.

Facilities: All rooms are equipped with TV, Mini Fridge with complementary water, a small balcony with a beautiful view, coffee station, air conditioning and a shower and wc.
Meals are a rather splendid and delicious affair; at dinner, the sun sets over the horizon and candles light the dining room. In winter, the central fire place radiates warmth like a heart. During summer, watch the day settle as you dine out on the deck.
The main lodge also offers a stunning swimming pool, an extensive raised deck and a comfortable Bar. The view from every room is exceptional.

Special feature: Take an engaging morning or afternoon game drive through the reserve. The views are superb, the flora varied and the game abundant. Nineteen different species roam the reserve, including Oryx, Kudu, Giraffe and Wildebeest. Leopard and Cheetah are also seen from time to time. The drives last 2 – 3 hours and include some drinks and snacks.
The reserve can also be explored on foot in the company of a guide, or on your own. Walks with an experienced and knowledgeable guide will last up to 2 hours.

Distance to Airport: App. 40 km from Hosea Kutako International Airport Windhoek, travelling time is app. 45 minutes

Waterberg Valley Lodge

Location: Situated on a hill in a wide valley of the Waterberg mountain range, the Waterberg Valley Lodge overlooks the green valley and the red mountain cliffs of the Waterberg Plateau.

Rooms: 9 double room chalets with canvas walls and brick bathrooms

Facilities: All rooms have toilets, showers and basins and their own private balcony. The restaurant dining room also has a Bar and Fireplace and is the perfect setting in which one can relax after a long day outdoors. The main lodge offers a lovely swimming pool and for those enjoying a 2-night stay, a laundry service is available.

Special feature: Game on the property includes giraffe, hartebeest, zebra, blue wildebeest, eland antelope and even white rhinos. The funds for this private nature reserve are generated by the hospitality business, which is run as environmentally friendly as possible. The lodges and campsites run on solar power which is an eco-friendly alternative to power generated by coal-fired power stations in South Africa or even hydropower stations in Namibia. Additionally, high-voltage power lines disturb the landscape and are a death trap for large birds.
Hot water for the bathroom is supplied by “donkeys”, wood-fired geysers. The fire wood is a product of debushing, which is necessary to keep the grass planes open. The water in the lodges and at the watering holes comes from the strong spring at the end of the valley. Activities include visits to a Plateau Hike, exclusive “Honeymoon” Sundowner and Rhino Tracking.

These resilient hunter-gatherers etched out a living on the plains and mountains where Desert Hills Lodge rests today. The property is a mere 30km from the Entrance Gate to the Namib Naukluft Park and the fascinating Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei.
This incredible lodge is inspired by the huts of the ancient peoples of the Namib and offers organic surfaces, gently rounded dome roofs and luxurious comfort within.

Rooms: 18 Individual luxury Chalets.

Facilities: Each chalet provides large spaces with beautifully designed and elegant seating, 100% cotton towels and luxurious bed linen on the large high quality beds.

Built in such a way as to ensure total privacy and tranquillity for each and every guest, the uninterrupted sweeping view of the Namib Desert from your private patio, or even from your bed through the glass-front of your chalet is simply breath-taking. Fine cuisine is served in the restaurant and the main lodge offers a fully licenced bar, wine cellar, library and a deck pool with an outside barbeque area and fire pit.
