Need help planning Namibia Trip!

Jump to last reply

Hello! My boyfriend and I are going to Namibia at the beginning of January and I'm having a hard time planning it. I'm looking for some help with reccomeding places to stay, how long to stay in which places, or if there's any other places on my route you think I should check out!
We will be there for 14 nights total. So far the only accommodation we have booked is Windhoek for 2 nights at the start of our trip. So I'm open to suggestions!
My idea so far is to go on this route:
Windhoek-2 nights
Etosha - 4 nights
Somewhere in Damaraland (don't know a lot about this)- 1-3 nights
Swakopmund- 3 nights (check out cape cross also)
Sossusvlei- 2 nights
Back to Windhoek.

We were going to do fish river canyon but I think it would be nice to have less driving time and more time in other places.


Just so you know a bit about us, we are a young couple who likes adventure but also likes to relax as well. Our main purpose of this trip is to see wildlife and experience the beautiful land formations Namibia has to offer. This will be our first time in Africa so if you have any other tips that would be great!
If possible we would like a little more budget friendly accommodations but are open to all ideas.
