Trip Overview

The scenic beauty of Namibia is only matched by its diversity. Deep canyons, towering sand dunes, otherworldly rock formations and vast salt pans merge seamlessly in an endlessly shifting landscape. The sky seems particularly big here with spectacular sunsets and, at night, the sight of billions of stars twinkling overhead. This is the backdrop for healthy wildlife populations which congregate around Etosha’s watering holes and a melting pot of different communities from traditional tribes to the descendants of German colonialists.

At a Glance

Is This Trip for You?

Transport is in a specially modified safari truck with ten to twelve seats for clients. The roof opens for game viewing and there is plenty of legroom and packing space. All vehicles carry a reference library, fridge and/or icebox. Smaller groups may be in a Mercedes Sprinter or a Hilux/Land Cruiser. By keeping the group size deliberately small we are able to maximise the exposure to the great African wilderness.

80% of Namibian roads are good gravel roads. However, the road conditions are completely dependent on how they are being maintained at the time and on occasion conditions can be poor. This can have an impact on journey times as well as comfort, and can be punishing on the vehicles. Drive times on this trip are moderate and we will normally arrive at our destination in the afternoon. The total distance covered on the trip is about 2,800kms. Drive times below are only approximations and do vary with road conditions and the number of stops. We will rarely exceed 6 hours driving in one day.

All activities done on tour are moderate, such as climbing Dune 45 and visiting the White Lady rock painting at Brandberg. The walks on the Waterberg Plateau can be classified as moderate to strenuous as it can get a bit steep and rocky.

There are some days where we will have to get up before sunrise but this will allow us to get the most from our activities (for example, the game drives in Etosha where we are more likely to see wildlife in the early mornings before it gets too hot).

As this is a fully supported camping trip, all cooking and other camp chores are done for you. We will be camping everywhere except in Swakopmund and Windhoek, in the very good and well-equipped campsites that are common to Namibia.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Itinerary

Land Only Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Start Windhoek.

    The tour starts at the Arebbusch Lodge in Windhoek. Those on group flights will be picked up at the airport and we will drive into town for an hour or so. In town everyone will have a chance to change money and pick up any supplies they may need; this is also an opportunity for our guides to buy fresh food. We will then drive to our lodge. The afternoon can be spent exploring or relaxing.
    Arebbusch Lodge or similar

  • Day 2

    Drive through Namib Nuakluft to Sesriem.

    Today we head southwest through the spectacular scenery of the Namib-Naukluft Park to Sesriem. This national park, one of the largest in the world, is home to one of the driest and oldest deserts on earth. It contains the finest desert scenery in Africa, if not in the world, with towering jagged rock formations and an incredible lunar landscape so be prepared for some great photo stops. (driving 300-350kms/7hrs)
    Sesriem Campsite or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch,
    Dinner
  • Day 3

    Sossusvlei and the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre

    Today we spend much of today in the Namib Desert. Rising early we catch the tallest sand dunes in the world in the best light and have the opportunity to climb one of the dunes as the sun rises, truly one of Africa’s greatest sights. We can either walk to Hiddenvlei or catch a transfer (optional extra) to Deadvlei where ancient acacia trees in the desert form an eerie scene. If we’re lucky we may see gemsbok or ostrich among the sand dunes. In the afternoon we visit Sesriem Canyon before joining a guide to see the cheetahs at the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre (please see Responsible Travel section) - depending on time, we may go tomorrow morning. We then continue on to our next camp which is approximately 1 hour away. (driving 200kms/ 3hrs).
    Solitaire Guest Farm Campsite or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
  • Day 4

    To Swakopmund via Walvis Bay.

    A long but very scenic drive through the Namib-Naukluft Park to Swakopmund. En route we visit Walvis Bay for lunch and to see local flamingos. Swakopmund is a small German colonial resort town with quaint cake shops and coffee houses and a centre for adrenaline activities. (driving 300kms /5.5hrs).
    Prost Hotel or similar

    Meals included:

  • Day 5

    Free day for optional activities.

    Today is a free day to enjoy one of the many optional activities on offer in and around town. At sea you can go deep-sea fishing and dolphin watching, in the desert you can go sand-boarding and quad-biking and in the sky you can fly over the skeleton coast. Or if none of these appeal you can spend the day enjoying the fantastic Viennese style cakes, walk along the beach or in the nearby dunes or just enjoy watching the world go-by in this town which seems strangely out of place in Africa.
    Prost Hotel or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 6

    Brandberg

    After a relaxing start we leave the cool breeze of the Atlantic Ocean behind and head inland towards Namibia’s highest mountain, Brandberg, in Damaraland. The Damaraland area is famous for the desert elephants which roam in the Ugab River. Star gazing is normally spectacular from this remote area (240kms / 3.5hrs).

    White Lady Painting & Vingerklip

    We begin our day with a short drive to Brandberg, where we will enjoy a walk through valley 45 for approximately 1.5 hours. Along the way we will view beautiful, granite rock formations and a variety of birdlife. The valley takes us to the famous ‘White Lady’ rock painting which, along with a number of other small paintings and engravings, are thought to have been left by Bushmen at least 2000 years ago. Afterwards we will drive towards the Khorixas area where we should pass various Himba and Herero women selling crafts from the roadside. There is also the possibility of spotting Desert elephants and meerkats on the way. In the afternoon we can view Vingerklip, a striking pinnacle of rock balancing vertically on its own (driving 250kms / 4.5hrs).

    To Etosha N.P.

    Today we begin with a short drive to Etosha. We should arrive at Etosha in time for a late afternoon game drive before camping at Okaukuejo, which has an excellent waterhole for viewing game at night. Our itinerary allows plenty of time to really enjoy this fabulous game park. (driving 150kms / 2hrs)
    Okaukuejo or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
  • Days 9-10

    Two days gameviewing in Etosha.

    Etosha is a huge park of mixed forest and grassland centred around a large salt pan. Etosha is home to a great variety and number of game, which is easy to find as the animals congregate at different times around the waterholes. There are waterholes next to the excellent campsites, and it is not uncommon for us to spend all night watching a gala performance of animals: wildebeest, zebra, impala, springbuck, kudu, elephant, giraffe, lion and even rhino are all common sights here. Take plenty of camera memory and lots of patience and you will be rewarded by one of the greatest game spectacles in Southern Africa. Etosha is also a good place for birds, with plenty of water birds on the lakes (when filled with water), and weaverbirds and hornbills in the trees. While in Etosha we move from Okaukuejo to Halali and/or Namatoni rest camps. These camps now offer optional night drives which you can book and pay for on arrival.
    Namutoni or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch,
    Dinner
  • Day 11

    On to the Waterberg Plateau. Optional 4x4 game drive.

    Leaving Etosha behind, we head towards the Waterberg Plateau. This 200 metre high gigantic flat-topped plateau with bushveld on top is one of Namibia’s most fertile areas. There are several walking trails, including one leading to a spectacular viewpoint near the top of the plateau offering a great view of the surrounding area. It is also possible to do an optional 4x4 game drive. (driving 300kms / 5hrs)
    Waterberg or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 12

    Utopia Boutique Hotel or similar

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 13

    End Windhoek.

    The trip ends after breakfast. Those on the group flights will be taken to the airport in time for their flight home.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast

Accommodation

Camps & Guesthouses

In Swakopmund we use a hotel with a bar and Wi-Fi and in Windhoek we stay in a lodge and a hotel which both have swimming pools. On all other nights we will be camping in two-person tents. Camping is undeniably a great way to experience Africa and the campsites in Namibia are generally well cared for, clean and tidy with facilities of a reasonable standard. All communal camping gear is provided, including spacious dome tents, thick foam mattresses and folding stools, although you will need to take your own sleeping bag. Most hotels do not provide mosquito nets. The tents have mosquito mesh across the windows.

Please note that due to the limited amount of accommodation within Etosha National Park, it may be necessary to sleep outside the park on some or all of the nights that we are there. This will not impact on the number of game drives that we have within the park.

Single accommodation (available on request)

Where a single supplement is available, paying for a single only guarantees a room for single use. It does not always mean a twin or double room will be provided for sole occupancy.

Single supplement from 241,30 €

Food & Transport

Eating & Drinking

All breakfasts, 5 lunches and 7 dinners included.

In the itinerary we state which meals are included on which day. Please allow approximately £10/US$15 per meal per person for meals not included. Some meals are in restaurants whilst others will be prepared by the tour leader and assistants. Camp meals are freshly cooked over the camp fire. They are wholesome and plentiful, but do not expect cordon bleu cuisine and please note it is not always easy to get fresh meat. However, the standard of food is generally good. Breakfast - cereals, coffee, yoghurt, muesli, fresh fruit or the occasional fried breakfast. Lunch - cheese, cold meats, pasta, salads, bread or rolls. Dinner - potjie (stew), braai (BBQ) or stir fries.

Vegetarians are well catered for on this trip though sometimes options might be more limited.

Transportation

The vehicle normally used for this trip is a specially modified safari truck with ten to twelve seats for clients. Seating is forward facing and the windows are large and easy to open. Smaller groups may be in a Mercedes Sprinter or Hilux/Land Cruiser. People are expected to move around to permit everyone a chance to have a window seat. The whole roof opens for game viewing and there is plenty of legroom and packing space. All vehicles carry a reference library and icebox. Please note, it is not safe to stand when the vehicle is moving, please remain seated until the vehicle stops, even on game drives.

Weather & Seasonality

When to go

Namibia is in the Southern Hemisphere, therefore essentially has the opposite seasonality to the UK. The months of June, July and August, whilst clear and warm during the day, can drop down to single figures and even freezing at night. Between September and May it is considerably warmer with the time between October and March being the hottest, getting up to the high 30sºC. However it is always a dry heat and the temperature does drop at night. The wet season is between November and February, but this is not a bad time to go as the desert blooms after rainfall, there is plenty of birdlife to see and, it never rains for very long.

Joining Instructions

Travelling flight inclusive from London: 15 Days

The group flight from London is an overnight flight departing the day before Day 1 of the itinerary.

Flights from London

We normally use the scheduled services of British Airways or South African Airways or Air Namibia
(depending on availability). As flight timings and schedules change regularly we recommend you call
one of our specialist sales staff or your agent to confirm up‐to‐date timings. Please note timings may change at a later date and cannot be confirmed until approximately two weeks before departure.


Travelling land only: 13 days starting and ending in Windhoek

Your trip normally starts at our accommodation in Windhoek in the morning of Day 1 of the itinerary. Details of how to reach the start point are provided in the Final Joining Instructions ‐ sent approximately two weeks before departure.

 

In the unlikely event of any of your luggage being misplaced or damaged, a Property Irregularity Report (PIR) must be filed with the appropriate airline if you subsequently wish to make a claim against the airline or on your travel insurance. This must be done at the airport where your baggage arrived, or should have arrived.

Regional Flights

The Flight Inclusive price is based on a London departure, but we are happy to tailor this to your local or regional airport. Please ask about flights from local or regional airports.

If booking regional flights other than with Exodus, you must allow a minimum connecting time (in addition to the international check-in time) of 1 hour at Gatwick, and 1.5 hours at Heathrow; this is longer than the official minimum, but baggage handling is known to be subject to delays.

Unless specified otherwise, the transfer will be to the Exodus start (or pre-tour) hotel and from the end (or post-tour) hotel, and will be on the date on which the tour starts/ends; transfers to other hotels in the same city and/or on different dates may attract an extra charge.

What to Take

Essential Equipment

You will need the following essential items:
Towel
Torch
Sun hat
Sun cream
Good walking shoes
Water bottle
Binoculars
Swimming Costume
Clothes for hot and cool (sometimes cold) weather.
Sleeping bag (3/4 season if travelling in July/August when it can get very cold at night ‐
otherwise 2 season)

Plastic bottles are a big issue in many countries where recycling isn't yet widely available; they often end up in landfill sites or get burnt, both processes are harmful to the environment and we would like to reduce our impact here. On your trip the tap water is safe to drink and the vehicle has a water tank that we can use while on the road. This means that safe drinking water will be available throughout and all you need to do is bring a bottle to re‐fill along the way. If you prefer the taste of bottled water, it is possible to purchase and re-fill from 5l bottles throughout the itinerary. 
If while packing you find a spare bit of space in your bag please be sure to check out our partner 'Pack for a Purpose' to identify items that are needed locally by schools and medical clinics. Your Tour Leader can assist with donating the items.

Practical Information

Passport

Namibia

All nationalities require a full passport that must be valid for 6 months beyond the intended length of stay. It is your responsibility to have the correct personal documents and to obtain your own visa, if one is necessary, in accordance with the regulations of the country you are to visit. The information below is primarily for UK passport holders, and other nationalities should check with their travel agent or the relevant embassies. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.

Visa

Namibia

Visas for Namibia are not required for UK or Commonwealth passport holders. Other nationalities should check before travelling. Please ensure you have a one full blank page in your passport. If you are transiting through South Africa and are a non UK passport holder you may require a transit visa. Please check before travelling. Please note that if flying via South Africa you will probably have to pass immigration there.

Please note that new regulations relating to travel with children means that in addition to valid passports, parents travelling with children (under 18) should at all times carry the original or certified copy of the unabridged birth certificate (listing the child’s and both parents’ details).

Adults travelling with children where they are not the biological or legal guardians of those children, should be in possession of an affidavit statement from the child’s parents giving consent for their travel. If a child is travelling with only one parent, the other parent should give consent for travel in the form of an affidavit.

Visa regulations can change without notice: please check the current regulations in good time to obtain a visa if one is required.

Vaccination

Namibia

There are no mandatory vaccination requirements.

Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Diphtheria, Typhoid, Hepatitis A.

Malaria prophylaxis is essential and we suggest that you seek advice from your GP or travel health clinic about which malaria tablets to take.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

The above information can change at short notice; as we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information. Please note: vaccinations that are routinely recommended to residents of the UK, North America or Australasia are not considered to form part of the travel health advice, and you should ensure these are kept up to date where necessary.

For additional information please visit: https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

Local Time

Namibia's Timezone:
Africa/Windhoek CAT (GMT +02:00)

Electricity

Namibia's Electricity:

220 Volts. Plug types D & M; establishments often take the large 3 round pin plugs as used in South Africa.

Namibia generally uses large, 3-round pin plugs (the same as in S. Africa) which are not normally found on mulit-plug adaptors. It is possibel to find adaptors at Heathrow airport or upon arrival. Nearly all the campsites/lodges provide a power point where you can charge your camera batteries. The power point is normally in a communal area like the kitchen or bar. Most of the vehicles are fitted with an inverter to allow you to charge your batteries while on the move (using European style plugs) also, but obviously space is limited so you should not rely on this being available.

Money

Namibia's Currency

The national currency of Namibia is the Namibian Dollar (NAD), with an exchange rate at the time of publication (June 2017) of approximately 16.6 to the GBP,  13 to the USD, 9.9 to the CAD, 14.6 to the EUR, 9.9 to the AUD and 9.5 to the NZD.

The Namibian Dollar is pegged to the South African Rand and both currencies are interchangeable in Namibia (though not in S. Africa). It is easier to obtain South African Rand than Namibian Dollars in your home country before travelling. You can also change GB£, US$ and Euros in Namibia.

ATM Availability

Most hotels and restaurants accept credit cards. Credit cards are widely accepted, and there are cash machines in the main towns and the airport, but you should not rely on this for all your money.

Extra Expenses & Spending Money

Optional Excursions

There are several optional activities in Swakopmund, such as ocean fishing, canoeing, quad‐biking and sand boarding but there's plenty to occupy you if you don't participate. These prices are
approximate.

Quad‐biking N$650 (for 2hrs); N$450 (for 1hr)
Fat biking N$450 (for 2hrs)

Tipping

This is entirely optional but we would recommend approximately £1-2 (US$1.5-3) per person per day.

Responsible Tourism

Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company. 

All accommodations for both lodge and camping departures, employs local staff and uses local produce and supplies wherever possible, benefiting the wider community. Energy saving bulbs and water conservation signs are utilised in the lodges whilst for the camping it is a great way to reduce environmental impact in itself but we are still careful about managing waste, litter and noise pollution.

On our wildlife safaris and game drives, twenty-five percent of all park entrance fees paid is reinvested into essential infrastructure and services related to tourism in Namibia’s parks. This is done through the Game Products Trust Fund by the MET (Ministry of Environmental and Tourism). In addition, by running game drives in Etosha National Park, we are also contributing to local community initiatives and helping to fund the protection of the wide range of species which live there.

This trip includes a visit to the Namib Carnivore Conservation Centre which is used to assist the long-term conservation of Namibia’s large carnivores through research, education and rehabilitation. We will meet the resident cheetahs and learn about the conservation efforts to protect the majestic creatures. However, the cheetah enclosure has now been reduced in size as the centre is making improvements to its fencing. It is due to be completed in April/May 2019 but an exact date is yet to be confirmed. Exodus does not wish to stop supporting the project during the transitional period so we decided to continue to include it in our itinerary. However, it does mean seeing the cheetahs in a smaller enclosure than normal.

In March 2019, Exodus Travels launched the Exodus Travels Foundation where we support initiatives all around the world. But it cannot exist without travellers who care. Get involved or learn more about what Responsible Travel means to Exodus here

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 16 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

In an emergency, please contact our 24 hour out of hours service on +44 (0) 844 326 7041.

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel Agent.
