Windhoek, Namib Desert, Swakopmund & Etosha National Park

Windhoek, Namib Desert, Swakopmund & Etosha National Park

Your trip begins in Windhoek, Namibia's capital. You leave Windhoek into the direction of the Namib Naukluft Park and drive through the typical Namibia gravel roads into the endless expanse of red sand dunes of the Namib Desert. On your way to Swakopmund you cross the Kuiseb Canyon into the hustle and bustle of this small coastal town from the German colonial era.

From Swakopmund the journey continues to the Brandberg and Damaraland, a dry stone desert which is known for their millennia old petroglyphs, the equally ancient desert plant "Welwitschia mirabilis" and the fossilized jungles. The Etosha National Park is one of the most important wildlife and nature conservation areas in Africa and was established by the German Governor von Lindequist in 1907. After your drive back to Windhoek you spend the last day of your trip in this lively city. You can buy souvenirs in the main street, Independence Avenue and say goodbye to Namibia with a cup of coffee and a slice of German cheesecake.
