Suggested Travel Itinerary at present for Namibia in September

Jump to last reply

27 Sep – Arrive in Windhoek from Maun around 18.00
1 night stay at Olive Grove

28 Sep – Pick up the car and drive to Kulala Wilderness Camp and stay 2 nights

29 Sep- Kulala Wilderness Camp

30 Sep –Sawkopmund 2 nights

02 Oct – Doro Nawas 2 nights

04 Oct – Etosha, Okaukuejo Rest Camp 2 nights

06 Oct - Erongo Wilderness Camp 2 nights

08 Oct - Drive to Windhoek and fly out in the evening.
At present none of these places are reserved but the agent thinks that we should do it soon.

BUT
We have been thinking over the above itinerary and here are some of the things we have come up with:

The main interests in our trip are Wild life, Landscape, Desert and the Dunes.

1. 27 Sep: Assuming we arrive on time in WDH is it possible to pick up the car and drive away from WDH to somewhere else?
What time does is it get dark in Sep? If it’s not possible to drive on, then we will stay in WDH as suggested.

2. 28 Sep: (1or 2 nights??) Africat at Okonjima Main Lodge

3. 29 Sep: (1 night) Halali Rest Camp

4. 30 Sep: (2 nights) Okaukuejo Rest Camp

5. 02 Oct: (2 nights) Doro Nawas or Damaraland Camp
On leaving here we are thinking driving on C39 and C34 along the coast, as we would like to visit the Seal Colony at Cape Cross.
Is this feasible or should we take C35 and C34?

6. 04 Oct: (1 night) Swakopmund . Not really bothered about boat trips etc.

7. 05 Oct: (2or 3 nights??) Kalula Wilderness camp
8. Return to WDH and depart Cape Town in the evening

We would like any of your generous suggestions and input to get the best out this very short trip to Namibia and make it memorable.

So, please feel free to suggest anything to better the above itinerary.
Thank you very much for your time.
