We start the day with an early breakfast and drive out of the park, make a short stop at Oudjo to stock up water and other personal needs before we drive to Twyfelfontein. The region is known as the ancient art region because of the San rock art which is recorded as one of the oldest rock arts in Africa. We visit the San (bushman) paintings before we drive to the lodge. We have an opportunity to track the desert elephants on foot with the local guides from the lodge (optional activity). DB

A land of wide open spaces, never failing to enthral its visitors. Namibia is known for its contrasting landscapes. The Namib Desert is the oldest in the world, with its high dunes and awe-inspiring sense of space. The views over the Fish River Canyon, the delicate balance of wildlife in Etosha National Park. The German heritage is very noticeable in Swakopmund and Windhoek.
BEST TIME TO TRAVEL: Namibia is one of the diverse countries in Africa geographically. The desert, the semi-arid, rocky mountainous landscapes and flat and fertile land in the Zambezi Region. The winter nights can be extremely cold while the day are cooler. The summer is rainy and hot. The best time to travel Namibia is between April and October.
DAMARALAND is a land of stark desert beauty. Early morning mists, generated by the clash between the icy Atlantic Ocean and the warm desert air of the Skeleton Coast, drift inland along the canyons, providing sustenance to the flora and fauna of the region. Rare succulent plants abound in this harsh countryside. Damaraland includes the granite domes of the Spitkoppe rising above the desert floor. The rock engravings of Twyfelfontien, the San rock paintings in the Brandberg landscapes.
ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK is one of the world’s most famous game sanctuaries. The huge, salty bowl which forms the vast central area of the park is only occasionally filled with water, so game concentrates in the grasslands and bush which encircle the reserve. Here on the perimeter, are underground springs feeding smaller pans, which serves as the magnet which has drawn such an abundance of game to the area.
SKELETON COAST is one of the most inhospitable but hauntingly beautiful places on the planet: desolate and uninhabited. It has everything, from roaring sand dunes, windswept plains, towering canyons and saltpans to seal colonies and shipwrecks.
