Namibia itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan our first trip to Namibia for sometime in Sept-Oct. Here's what I've come up with so far (with help from Cardboard Box and fodors). :)

- Arrive in WDH early, spend the day and night there. Pick up our rent car at the airport on arrival.
- 2 nights in Erongo Wilderness Lodge. CB recommended this and it looks nice but I probably wouldn't have come up with it.
- 3 nights in Etosha, probably in the rest camps if they're available. How is that accommodation?
- 3 nights at Mowani Mountain Camp. Nicci's report made it sound great and so does the lodge's website. :)
- 2 nights in Swakopmund, stopping to see Cape Cross on the way. Is one full day in town enough to poke around and shop? I was thinking we could see Walvis Bay on the drive down to the Sossusvlei area. Does that sound reasonable?
- 2 nights around Sossusvlei with a daytrip to the dunes.
- On the last day, drive from Sossusvlei to Windhoek and have the afternoon there. Leave early the next morning.

How does that sound? Is that enough time in Windhoek? We like cities, wandering around, shopping, etc. Should I take a day away from somewhere and tack it onto the end in Windhoek? Thanks for your opinions!!
