Arrival in Windhoek
Explore Etosha National Park
Spot black rhinos, lions, elephants.
After being picked up by your tour guide, you will journey through Windhoek City before leaving the city and continuing north along the B1 main road, passing through settlements. In one of the towns, you'll have lunch and refuel your car. You will stop briefly at Lake Otjikoto along the way; it is the smaller of Namibia's two permanent natural lakes. It is a sinkhole lake that resulted from a karst cave collapse. The B1 main road is only 100 meters from the lake. The lake has a diameter of 102 meters (335 feet), but its depth is unknown. After a brief stop at the lake, you will continue on a decent route to Etosha National Park. Before getting to your lodging inside the park, you will start with a game viewing.
Today, you will spend the entire day in this world-class game park, visiting various water holes to see the wildlife. You will first see the spectacular pan at Etosha, which is interpreted as "the place of dry water." At Okaukuejo Camp, seeing lions, elephants, and black rhinos is not unusual.
You will enjoy your breakfast before leaving the park to travel to Windhoek after an early morning game drive. You can take a break in Okahandja town, which is home to Namibia's biggest wood carving market, as you continue on a nice road. The market is a great spot to do last-minute shopping for really Namibian items because the stalls are run cooperatively by the local community. You will be dropped off at your lodging or at Hosea Kutako International Airport (WDH) for your departure flight when you return to the city's center about noon.
