DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1: Fly to Ongava

The tour begins with a flight to Ongava from the international airport of Namibia. You might feel exhausted about another flight but trust us you won’t be. The flight to Ongava will be of few hours only and the incredible landscape down will not make you feel those hours. While flying you will realize how stark the place, not because of its beauty but by its no-crowded nature. You will hardly see human things there which makes it rare among all the safaris. So, enjoy your flight to Ongava and explore the landscape from the top.

Day 2: Drive to Etosha

You will be reaching Ongava in the late evening and so there will be no time to explore it. All you can do is to relax and have a good night’s sleep for the next day which is going to be the real safari day. The second day of your Namibia safari starts with a drive to Etosha Pan, a saline depression covering thousands of square kilometers. This is the place where you can explore the landscape and the wildlife altogether. You will get to see the incredible landscape, thousands of flamingos, giant elephants, hippos, and a sensation of having experienced a part of Africa’s wildlife that few have seen before.

Day 3: Into Damaraland

If camping is your cup of tea, then Damaraland should be your destination. Spend your third day in the Damaraland camps and experience the all-natural living like never before. See the imperious clifftops, epic grandeur at the foot of the Etendeka Mountains, and proximity to the Huab River Valley while sitting and relaxing in an all wooden Damaraland camp.

Day 4: Explore the Swakopmund town

The fourth day of your safari should focus on exploring the town of Swakopmund. Roam around the town to explore the shops, the places, and the people of course. If touring along with a guide, ask him to tell you about the places and the history and if traveling alone, try to interact with the people to know more about the town. Do not miss to pamper your taste buds with delicious European pastries, oysters and luscious seafood.

Day 5: Fly south to the dunes of Sossusvlei

The Namibia safari adventure is nothing without the visit to the dunes of Sossusvlei. Rocky mountains in varied colors, incredible watercourses, ancient valleys, the sinuous, and the rolling shapes of the dunes of the Sossusvlei is sure to take your sigh away. For the ultimate bird’s-eye view of this stunning landscape, there is no better way to experience it than by hot air balloon. So, hire a hot balloon service to fly up and observe countless birds around you while silently drifting over the rocky outcrops, plains, and dunes. Spend your last day at Namibia in exploring the mesmerizing landscape and eternal beauty of this place.

As you are open to the best place to visit in Namibia in 5 days, go ahead and plan an ultimate Namibia safari for you and your family. Explore the rocky mountains and incredible wildlife like never before.
