Day 2,Zebra Kalahari Lodge

Simply stylish and elegant, the Zebra Kalahari Lodge is the most decadent of the 3 lodges on the Intu Afrika Private Game Reserve. After a short drive through the contrasting Kalahari Desert where game languish under trees or in pans, guests are welcomed with a much-needed refreshing drink and a smile as warm as the desert sun. The gurgling fish pond and the beautiful stone and wood buildings immediately soothe one’s soul and guests are ushered into the coolness of the lounge area overlooking a rather vibrant waterhole and swimming pool whilst logistics are efficiently handled.

Day 3,Fish River Lodge

Today you drive to the Fish River Canyon, which is the largest canyon in Africa and second only to the Grand Canyon. En route you can visit the Quiver Tree Forest near Keetmanshoop.

Day 5,Namib Desert Lodge, Namib

The Namib is the world’s oldest desert, and although it stretches along the entire length of Namibia’s coastline, the Namib commonly refers to the vast sea of sand from Luderitz to Swakopmund. For a big sandy desert the scenery is remarkably varied, with the giant red dunes of Sossusvlei being the most famous part. Because of how old it is the Namib is home to numerous species that don’t occur elsewhere and although no humans live in the desert an amazing array of flora and fauna manages to survive here. Famous species include the Welwitschia – a living fossil plant.

Day 6,Namib Desert Lodge, Namib

The day is at your leisure. On the farm grounds are numerous animals: Oryx antelopes, kudus, jackals and foxes, even leopards and cheetahs. There are various hiking trails, even more challenging hikes are possible on the mountainous terrain. Bizarrely shaped granite formations and vast, yellow grassy areas can be admired - and the red dunes of the Namib always shine in the background, which is an impressive sight especially at sunset.

Day 7,Hoodia Desert Lodge, Sossusvlei

Continue your journey along the Namib towards Sesriem. On the way you visit Duwisib Castle, a grand pseudo-medieval looking fortress located in the hills of the semi-arid Southern Namib region.

Day 14,Mushara Lodge, Etosha National Park

Enjoy a day of exiting game viewing in Etosha National Park. The appeal of the park lies its contrast of wide open grasslands mixed with woodlands of Camelthorn and Mopani trees. This diverse vegetation accounts for the abundace of wildlife that thrives in the park. The park’s main characteristic is a huge salt pan that can even been seen from space. During your drive to the eastern side of the park, you can expect to see abundant wildlife that congregates around the waterholes and on the open plains.

Each of the double room chalets sits between red sandstone rocks in the midst of green bush, with total privacy guaranteed. Acacias shade the terrace; a plunge pool filled with spring water provides cooling and attracts birds and small game.

Day 19,Waterberg Plateau Lodge

The diverse landscape of the Waterberg makes a longer stay worthwile. In 1972 the Waterberg Plateau Park was created to provide refuge for several of Namibia's rare and endangered species. The many springs around the Waterberg support a wide diversity of flora and fauna with over 200 different bird species. Evidence of early human occupancy are the rock engravings that were found in this area. However, the true beauty of the Waterberg is revealed only to the hiker. The Mountain View Trail leads to the edge of the Waterberg.
