A full day's game driving today and we leave early to enjoy the
cool morning air as we game drive our way through Etosha to Halali
camp, situated in the middle of the park. Along the way we visit
several waterholes and are afforded splendid views of the massive
Etosha Pan. The game viewing is usually excellent and we have the
chance to tick off a few new species that are not normally seen
on the Okaukuejo side of the park. We stop at Halali camp for a
rest and a leisurely lunch and there is time to visit the Halali
waterhole and to make use of the swimming pool and bar facilities
before continuing to the eastern side of the park and our camp in
the Namutoni region.

road, passing through towns and rural areas and we will make time
to make a stop in the small town of Okahandja, the home of Namibia’s

basis and are one of the best places to shop for truly Namibian
souvenirs. We are due back into the city around 16:00 and you will

beautiful Remhoogte Pass.
Coming out of the mountains we reach open plains and from here it
is only a short distance to our next stop, the tiny town of Solitaire.
We will stop here for some refreshments before continuing on through

begins to give way to the immense red sand dune desert of the Namib.
We aim to arrive at our camp during the late afternoon and watch
the colours glow and change on distant mountains to the east.
Day 5 Namib Desert Camp – Sossusvlei - Namib Desert
Camp (camping) (BLD)
A pre dawn start is essential this morning as we want to catch the
soft light of the sunrise on the desert. After passing through Sesriem,
the gateway to the dunes and driving into the heart of the dune
field, we reach Sossusvlei itself by walking the last 5 km through
The walk is like nothing else, in the cool of the morning, with
soft sunlight just beginning to play over the dunes creating a sharp
light and shadow contrast across the whole desert.
Ancient mineral pans, stunted camel thorn trees and the chance of
seeing a gemsbok or maybe an ostrich make the photo opportunities
We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting dune
45, and as the day wears on we return to Sesriem for lunch to escape
the heat of the afternoon. As the day cools off in the late afternoon
we will take a short excursion to the Sesriem
