Namibia for One Week! Where to go, what to see?!!

Jump to last reply

Hi all -- you guys were so helpful in planning my first safari trip to South Africa and a subsequent trip to Kenya and Tanzania. So, I am looking forward to some good suggesstions for Namibia.

I will traveling to South Africa for one week in mid-June with my three kids on business. I will then have 7 days to spend in Namibia! Please know that my kids are very well-traveled as this will be their 6th trip to South Africa, they were on the above-mentioned trips and they have traveled extensively through West Africa on vacation and for bare bones non-profit trips.

With this said, where should we go, where should we stay and how should we travel???!!!

In reading the forums, I am interested in Sossusvlei, Damarland and possibly Swakopmund or Kaokoland. However, if that seems like too much, I would skip Swakopmund or Kaokoland. Please note that Swakopmund would be for adventure sports and Kaokoland would be to visit the Himba. I would really like an experience visiting a native tribe. What do you guys think of visiting these three places? Yes or stick to two stops?

I am looking at Sossus Dune Lodge, Little Kulala, and And Beyond Sossusvlei when visiting Sossusvlei; Camp Kipwe or Mowani Mountain Camp for Damaraland. I have no options yet for Swakopmund or Kaokoland as I do not yet know if it feasible to do so much.

In terms of companies to help me plan, on the forums I have read about ATI, Discover Namibia, and Cardboard Box. Any thoughts, comments or recommendations?

I am looking at a combination of flying and driving. I would probably do guided drives as I can't make it around my own town with a GPS, so I cannot imagine driving myself in Namibia (husband has to work and cannot make this trip). I do want to be driven at least one leg as the posts have just raved about the scenery. However, I would add air as well just to conserve time. Again, thoughts or comments?

Lastly, I really do not have a strong opinion about what to do first, second, etc., so please feel free to weight in.

Thanks all. Sorry I wrote a book here but wanted to get out all my thoughts in order to get your great advice. I am looking forward to hearing from you and locking this down!

Enjoy the weekend.
