4x4 Namibia


Safari Profile:
 
Start: Windhoek

Countries: Namibia
   
Duration: 15 days
Briefing: Our "4x4 Namibia" concentrates on very remote and not easily accessible areas in the North and the most North-Easterly Regions of Namibia.
 
You will be crossing untouched and very imposing landscapes with excellent opportunities to watch animals.

A sturdy and very reliable off-road vehicle is an absolute must. Every party will have the chance to prove  first hand its off- road driving capabilities or to better it.

Routing:

From Windhoek we drive North towards Twyfelfontein and carry on to Brandberg, where ancient rock paintings of the Bushmen can be discovered. Navigating our way through open country, sand dunes and mountainous areas we dive deeper and deeper into Damaraland, home of some rare Black Rhinos in this region.

Further North in the huge Kaokoveld some tribal areas of the Himba are touched before eventually reaching the striking settings of the Kunene River, forming the natural border to Angola. The Northernmost part of Namibia. Following the river gorges the tracks lead us to the Epupa Falls, inviting for an overnight stay in the middle of remotest wilderness.

Only four wheel drive vehicles are capable to carry on over sandiest tracks to Ruacana Falls, plunching 120m deep into a 700m wide gorge. Eventually the routing reaches Etosha Pan being the probably the best known and animal richest National Park in Namibia. A guided game drive into the night will impart unforgettable impressions.

The next stretch will now lead to the distant Tsumkwe, central hub of the Bushmen territory. On a walking safari through the bush one can learn about their impressing native skills and knowledge. Demanding tracks with deep sand will bring you to one of the remotest parks: Kaudom Park is characterised by dried out riverbeds, bizarre dry forests and Elephants adapted to this harsh environment.

Turning point of this expedition is the lush oasis at Ngepi situated directly at the Kunene River. It is rated one of the finest camps of Southern Africa and definitely a crowning highlight on this safari. Heading South the route passes the massive Waterberg Plateau inviting for another night before returning back to civilisation and reaching Windhoek, where this awe-inspiring safari ends.

This safari caters for the Namibia lover looking for the extraordinary and wantíng to protrude into new and difficult accessible territories. Distant areas and isolated ethnic groups dominate this safari. The routing is very ambitious and you will leave back home with dust in your veins.
