Starting in Windhoek and finishing Livingstone (or in the reverse order), this itinerary allows you to explore Namibia’s Skeleton Coast and Damaraland before heading north to world-renowned Etosha National Park for a few days game viewing. For a complete change of scenery, you then drive east through the Caprivi Strip and finally finish at Zambia’s spectacular Victoria Falls. This trip can be done all year round and can also be done in reverse.
Arrive in Windhoek where you will be met by a member of our team in Namibia and taken to the Olive Grove Guesthouse. This is a wonderfully friendly and comfortable place to relax after the flight.

Today you will drive to Spitzkoppe Camp, Southern Damaraland, which we think is one of the most beautiful areas in Namibia, consisting of an imposing granite rock formation set in the plains. Definitely one of our favourites!
