Itinerary

Tour Name: Namibian Wonders – Discovery Version
Start Date: 2010

Day 1
Arrive at the Windhoek International Airport where a transfer representative will meet you and
transfer you to Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.
Olive Grove Guest House is a new upmarket accommodation establishment situated close to the
Windhoek city centre in a quiet, peaceful area. One of Olive Grove's main features is the large
veranda in front of every room, with tables and chairs for 'al fresco' dining.

The open-air lounge,
spa bath, plunge pool and tranquil garden all invite the visitor to unwind and relax under the open
skies. The inside lounge is tastefully decorated, with comfortable chairs and a fireplace in front of
which to relax and read a magazine. The friendly and efficient staff is always on hand to ensure
that the visitors’ stay is a comfortable and enjoyable one.
Lunch and dinner are on own account

Day 2
After a relaxed breakfast, you will be picked up by a transfer representative and taken to the Avis
offices to collect your rental vehicle. K-Class or similar manual vehicle with power steering, cd
and air-conditioning.

For complete privacy the chalets at Okonjima Bush Camp are situated a minimum of 80 meters
apart. The chalets are a combination of earthy ochre walls, and khaki green canvas, under a
thatched roof. With half the chalet made from canvas the entire front of the chalet can be rolled
up at night allowing the cool breeze and sounds of the Namibian bush into the bungalow.
The less adventurous can securely close the sides and sleep safely in the knowledge that the outside
world is where it belongs..... outside.

Day 3 & 4
After breakfast depart to the eastern side of the Etosha National Park.
Onguma Tented Camp is a beguiling mixture of sophistication and relaxation, of elegance and the
earth.
In the local Herero language, Onguma means, "the place you don't want to leave." With a
stunning main building and seven tents providing private, exclusive accommodation, Onguma
Tented Camp, certainly lives up to its name.

An atmosphere of elegant dining prevails, complimented by the daily activities taking place
around the watering hole, approximately 60 metres away. The surrounding nature lends itself to
long lazy afternoons, spent relaxing on the sofas in the lounge, watching the animals go. And
when things heat up, all that is required is a gentle stroll to the rim flow pool.
Sit and relax in the flowing waters while enjoying an ice cold cooler. Alternatively if more strenuous activity is
required, then relaxing on your patio and reading a good book should provide you with all the
exercise you may need.
Onguma also became part of an innovative custodianship project relating to the black rhino. Six
black rhino were darted in Etosha National Park and shipped to the reserve. Here they are
protected and monitored. More than 300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma.
The reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer
months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers paradise with thousands of species migrating to
wetlands created by the seasonal rains and ephemeral river systems. This part of Namibia has
been identified as one of the key bird watching sites in Southern Africa.
Lunch, entrance fees into Etosha & all activities offered by the lodge are on own account

Day 5
Enjoy another full day of game viewing inside the Etosha National Park.
The most popular resort and also the oldest in the Etosha National Park - it has been in existence
since the early fifties - is Okaukuejo, characterized by its thatched bungalows.
Okaukuejo’s focal point is the floodlit waterhole where visitors gather at night to watch game,
including black rhino, elephant, giraffe and lion, come to drink.
The resort has a newly built restaurant, bar and shop complex. Okaukeujo is the main administrative centre of the park, and
houses the Etosha Ecological Institute, from where research and the conservation management
are conducted.
Lunch, dinner and entrance fees into Etosha are on own account

Day 6 & 7
Drive to the heart of Damaraland.
Between the Ugab and Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoiled
wilderness. This area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations,
archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It's also the Southernmost
roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.

Mowani Mountain Camp is characterised by its thatched dome-shaped structures which echo the
shape of the granite boulders amongst which they are built. Much care has been taken with the
design of the public areas, creating the impression of a (very upmarket) African Village, with
dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders which are scattered
around the outcrops.

Mowani is taken from the word M'Wane, meaning "Place of God", and it is here, that you will find
the true meaning of peace and tranquility. Mowani Mountain Camp nestles amongst the boulders
of this beautiful area on a high spot commanding distant views over the ancient landscape.

The luxury tented accommodation is built unobtrusively, so as to ensure minimum impact on the
natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents ensure that very little excavation was
needed in order to create this special oasis.The main complex at Mowani consists of a reception,
bar, dining room and a lounge which overlooks the waterhole.

Accommodation is in 12 luxury East-African-style en-suite safari tents which are spread around the mountain crest. The tents are
built on raised wooden platforms, each with its own private veranda and great views of the Aba-
Huab Valley.
Lunch, entrance fees and all activities offered by the lodge are on own account

The Swakopmund Guesthouse has 12 en suite rooms. Centrally located on the corner of Hendrik
Witbooi and Rhode Allee it is within 5 minutes walking distance to the centre of town and the
beach. It has a modern design and thus does cater for the discerning traveller. The guesthouse
offers complimentary transfers to and from the Swakopmund Airport. Free Internet connection is

boarding, dolphin cruise, camel rides etc, or perhaps a visit to the museum, aquarium or the

which were designed with the fragile beauty of this remarkable environment in mind. The Desert
Homestead will ensure you an unrivalled respite from the desert extremes. Tranquil surroundings,

Return to the lodge for lunch after which you will be picked up by a Wolwedans representative for
your road transfer to the NamibRand Nature Reserve.
The Wolwedans Dunes Lodge aims at providing a unique experience close to nature, yet without
compromising any comfort and style.

The entire lodge is constructed on wooden platforms and
overlooks the panoramic vistas in the 185 000 NamibRand Reserve in all directions, capturing the
desert in an intimate and memorable way. The building style is a combination of wooden poles
and large canvas blinds that open up to the desert beyond. Each of the 9 spacious chalets with
en-suite bathrooms as well as the four-bedded family chalet and the exclusive Mountain View
Suite lead onto a private veranda and stretches of untouched sand.

A careful selection of furniture, light-coloured linen as well as the selection of accessories gives
the Dunes Lodge a distinct natural charm. The main complex - also built on stilts - consists of a
bar and lounge, sun-downer decks with a fireplace and a spacious dining room.
