3 day etosha safari

Guided three day tour to the Etosha National Park in Namibia

Daily Tour Description - Etosha Safari Namibia

Day 1

Windhoek –  Etosha South | Travel time approx. 5 hours - 450 km

I will collect you early in the morning at the airport or alternatively at your Windhoek accommodation before we head off north on a scenic drive, arriving at the "Taleni Etosha Village" by lunch time. Enough time to refresh and a lunch break before we are leaving the lodge for the "Andersson Gate" and now entering the Etosha National Park. After a short drive we arrive at the Okaukuejo rest camp, the starting point for our afternoon game drive. Okaukuejo was originally the site of a German fort built in 1901. We will visit a few waterholes and hopefully be able to view some of the the amazing number of animal species, who are regular visitors at these waterholes. These include the endangered black rhino, cheetah and the rare black faced impala among other antelope species, elephants and lion. We are set to return to our accommodation before the gate is closed looking forward to the most spectacular Etosha game drive through the park the next day.

Overnight: Taleni Etosha Village - Dinner and Breakfast included

 

Day 2

Etosha South - Etosha East | Travel time approx. 7 hours - 210 km

Our exciting second day in the Etosha National Park starts after a full English breakfast when we leave early in the morning on our way to the Halali Camp, our half-way destination. Please be aware that the speed limit inside the Etosha National Park is limited to 60 kms per hour. Here we stop for a light lunch and can make use of the swimming pool and the bar facilities, before continuing our journey to the East. We pass a number of waterholes and no doubt a lot of wildlife along the way. There is plenty of time to stop for the purpose of taking photographs, especially with a splendid view of the distant Etosha Pan. The pan is usually dry during the winter months and only contains water during the rainy season. The pan itself covers about 25 percent of the entire Etosha National Park. By late afternoon we arrive at Fort Namutoni rest camp, which is an old German fort, now serving as an accommodation establishment. Here we have the opportunity to take more photographs of the old Fort and also visit the memorial site of the Ovambo warriors, who attacked the Fort on January 28, 1904 under the leadership of Captain Shivute. Our final game drive will take us around the Fisher Pan, which allows for excellent game viewing, especially during the months of December to April, when large flocks of Flamingo and other birds species make the pan their home. We are now leaving the park via the "Von Lindequist Gate" and turn right outside the gate to reach the splendid "Mokuti Etosha Lodge" located within it's own 4000 hectar private game reserve. After a delicious buffet dinner served on the terrace in the garden we will retire for the night.

Overnight: Mokuti Etosha Lodge - Dinner and Breakfast included

 

Day 3

Etosha East – Windhoek | Travel time approx. 6 hours - 500 km

Today we leave the Mokuti Etosha Lodge and the Etosha National Park and depart back to Windhoek. After a very relaxed breakfast we are going on a fairly long but scenic drive South. The route takes us through Tsumeb, Otavi and Otjiwarongo, all well established towns in Namibia with a good mix of all races and cultures in our country. Okahandja will be our last stop today before arriving in Windhoek and an ideal opportunity to visit Namibia's largest wood carving market and famous for Namibia's best 'Biltong' and 'Droe Wors' (Air dried spiced meat and sausages).
We are due back in Windhoek by late afternoon and our 3 day Etosha safari has come to the end. I will be drop you off at your accommodation or alternatively at the airport for your flight back home.
