How to spend remaining 10 nights in Namibia after Sossusvlei?

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be self-driving in late August-early Sept. We have reservations for 4 nights in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and are then planning to spend 3 nights at Sossus Dune Lodge. We then have 10 nights remaining before we have to fly out of Windhoek and are trying to figure out how to best spend it. We know we want to go to Etosha for at least 6 (possibly more) of those 10 nights, but my sense is we probably don't have enough time to do the Skelton Coast or Damaraland properly so may save those for another trip. This will be our first trip to Namibia, and our main priorities are wildlife viewing, photography, hiking and just relaxing surrounded by nature. Where else do folks recommend? Most itineraries seem to include a night or so at Swakopmund in between Sossuvlei and Etosha but I am not sure that is a huge priority for us. I was thinking maybe a couple of nights at Okonjima and a couple of nights at Erongo Wilderness Lodge?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts or suggestions.
