Windhoek: City and Township Tour

1. Windhoek: City and Township Tour

After pickup from your accommodation in Windhoek, set off first on the city tour. Look forward to seeing places like the Houses of Parliament-National Assembly, Parliament Gardens, the old railway station, the Namibia Craft Center, Christuskirche (Christ Church), and Alte Feste (Old Fort). Make a stop at the old cemetery in Hochland Park, a highlight for history enthusiasts, too. From the city center, head to the Katutura Township to catch a glimpse of life in Windhoek's largest suburb. Boasting people from a number of different cultural groups, Katutura is the place to be if you want to mix with the lively and varied cultures of Namibia. In Katatura, visit the “Single Quarters,” a local market where you can enjoy a taste of the Namibian specialty Kapana — Namibian beef cooked by the local vendors. Also included is a stop at a local community empowerment project. After the tour, you will be dropped back to your accommodation.

2. Namibias Best 4 Day Etosha Safari Private Guide Tour

Depart from Windhoek and stop briefly at Otjiwarongo to enjoy a light lunch before entering Etosha National Park through the Anderson Gate. Enjoy a game drive across the park visiting waterholes and looking for predators as well as zebra, giraffe, elephants, and rhino. Arrive at your accommodation just before sunset. The accommodation is located inside Etosha National Park and has a floodlit waterhole next to the camp. Rise for a pre-sunrise snack with tea/coffee and then game drive until mid morning when you return to camp for breakfast before heading out for another game drive. Head back to Halali for a picnic lunch. After lunch, you will visit the mighty Etosha Pan (the largest salt pan in Namibia) before game driving across the park in your quest to find the big 4. Visit one last waterhole to worship the African sunset before you head back for a dinner prepared by your guide over the campfire, where you can compare photos and stories of the animals seen today. Have an early morning breakfast before departing for a drive to the communal lands of Damaraland where you will see the communal farmers in this arid region. You stop at the Ugab River bridge to visit with the beautiful Herero ladies who sell their small art and craft items to support their families. Have lunch in the shadow of the Brandberg Mountain and go on a short visit with a Himba group who have moved into this area to sell their jewellery and other items (dependent on Himba tribespeople). After lunch, you head directly through the Namib Desert and stop at the latest shipwreck on the Skeleton Coast before arriving late afternoon in Swakopmund. Explore this seaside town on foot and visit the jetty for sunset. Have dinner locally (own expense). On the last day you can ask to take part in optional additional activities before you return to Windhoek.
