Nambia Itinerary Help!

Hello! I've read all the posts on Namibia on this board (and on the Thorn Tree), but I'm still left with these questions:


We have 11 nights in Namibia. Since we're doing a Robin Pope walking safari in Zambia,
> we don't have a special desire to go to Etosha or to
> see big animals. The
> basic plan is to try to avoid super touristy places,
> but Soussvlei sounds
> too great to pass up even though it sounds touristy.
>
> There are two plans I have in mind and I'm having
> trouble deciding which
> would be better. On both plans we rent a car in
> Windhoek and drop it off in
> Walvis Bay.
>
> Plan A is 2 nights at either the Heinitzburg Hotel
> or the Hilltop Hotel, 2
> nights on the Tok Tokkie walking trails, 3 nights at
> Wolwedans Dune Camp, 2
> nights Sesriem,
> 2 nights Lagoon Lodge Walvis Bay.
>
> Plan B is 1 night Windhoek, 3 nights Wolwedans, 2
> nights Sesriem, 1 night
> Walvis Bay, 3 nights Kaokoland (either at Serra
> Cafema Camp or Epupa Falls
> camp or with Kaokohimba Safaris), 1 night Walvis

> Plan B costs about US$800 per person more because of

> Do you have a view about

Thank you!

I am sorry I can't help with your itinerary.

But I can tell you that you will love Wolwedans.

We stayed in the Lodge rather than the Camp but the spectacular scenery and quiet will calm your soul just as well in either.

To be able to see not only the stars, not only the Milky Way Galaxy, but other galaxies too. I was blown away.

The reserve is beautiful too.

If you'd like to see photos look a thread entitled something like Kavey's photos from... which is currently near the top.

Also the food we were served here was better than anywhere else.

Hermann, the manager, is a poetic soul and Louise, a conservationist guide there, from England originally, opens your eyes to the Living Desert.

Oh, we'll be staying at Hilltop House too, on our return trip, in 2004. It was recommended by our agent Illona of Steppes Africa, she's wonderful to deal with.

We'll be returning to Wolwedans to renew our wedding vows.
