9 days – Khaudum Parc & Kavango River
Windhoek – Otavi Mountain Region – Khaudum National Park – Mahango Game Reserve
Day 1: Windhoek Gardens Boutique Hotel, Windhoek
Windhoek is Namibia’s capital, home to an international airport and a plethora of restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and accommodation options. The city is clean, safe and well-organised, with a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and the widespread use of the German language. Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste (Old Fort), the 1896 Christuskirche (Christ Church), and the more contemporary Supreme Court.
Day 2: Roy’s Rest Camp, Otavi Mountain Region
Roy’s Rest Camp is a small part of the farm Elandslaagte. The camp was started in 1995 and was built for cattle farming and tourism as the main industries. Elandslaagte is one of the older farms in the district of Grootfontein, and has been in operation since 1930. Roy’s Camp is situated on the main road from Grootfontein to Rundu, 55 km north of Grootfontein. It is an ideal stopover from northern Namibia to Caprivi and bushman land. There are 5 standard rooms and 2 family rooms all with en suite facilities and private braai areas. The camp bungalows are of a unique rustic design. All rooms have air conditioning and mosquito nets. There are also 16 campsites with braai facilities and hot water.
Day 3 & 5: Khaudum Campsite, Khaudum National Park
Bordering Botswana and set in the Kalahari Desert, just south of the entrance to the Caprivi strip, Khaudum National Park is a remote wilderness with limited tourist infrastructure that attracts relatively few visitors – but its charm lies in this precise aspect. Those with an adventurous spirit will revel in the park’s wild, isolated beauty. Established to protect Namibia’s northern Kalahari sandveld biome, it is a haven for a diverse array of animals and more than 300 bird species. The spectacular landscape features broad river beds, dry forests, and endless wide open spaces. Visitors looking for a thrilling 4X4 adventure can find it here in ‘Namibia’s Forgotten Wilderness’.
Day 6: Nunda River Lodge, Mahango Game Reserve
Nunda River Lodge is situated on the banks of the Kavango River in the lush region of the Caprivi in the north-east of Namibia. It is an ideal base to explore this area as it is close to both Popa Falls and Mahango National Park. Activities include game drives into the park, boat cruises on the Kavango, fishing, mokoro canoe trips and guided walks to a nearby traditional village.
Day 7: Otavi, Otavi Mountain Region
This small Namibian farming town is the gateway to the beautiful Otavi Mountainlands and is located close to a number of national attractions. Approximately 35 kilometres east of Otavi is Gaub Cave, with its interesting rock formations, calcified waterfalls and crystal clusters, while the Hoba Meteorite – the largest known example of its kind on earth – is located several kilometres past the cave.
Day 8: Windhoek City, Windhoek
Windhoek – City of Many Faces. Pulsing with life, opportunity and the promise of adventure, Windhoek is a multicultural city, characterised by the tranquil co-existence and ample lebensraum for its people.
