Strategic Planning Questions for Namibia in relation to So Africa

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Namibia (7-8 days) and So Africa (9-11 days) in 2015 sometime between early June and mid September (when is best time frame?)
Given my husband's age then, 77, we must tailor our activities to reality. He's in good shape for a man who has had a hearth attack (has a pacemaker) and has a bunch of hardware in his lower leg to repair a bad break. I'm in good shape for 70, just sensitive to the cold, dust in eyes and get exercise induced asthma. So we can do walks, hikes without steep ascents. I can't believe I have to even mention these issues!!
I have temporarily rules out self drive because we don't have the time and driving 4 to 5 hours would be too tiring for us. If flights are included in the cost of some of the lodges, then we'll fly.
We're primarily interested in the unique landscapes of Namibia. So we're thinking of Soss usvlei, Swakopmund area, far northwest staying at Serra Cafema (I just like the looks of the camp and setting).
This may sound sacrligious but I was wondering about what we would miss if we skipped the Etosha NP since we will be staying at 3 consessions in So Africa (have not nailed down which ones yet, and we have done safaris in the Delta in Botswana, Zambia, several areas in Kenya, several areas in Tanzania). i do realize we miss the opportunity to possible see some of the endangered species and perhaps get closer to the animals than in other parks (or is that only if one self drives?).
Enough for now.
