    Day before

    Day 1 & 2:

    Welcome to Namibia. The tour begins right away and the route is leading via the central part of Namibia to the Etosha National Park, where you will stay for 2 nights.

    The Etosha Safari Camp is 8 km before the Anderson Gate. Down to earth, relaxed, innovative, and charming are Etosha Safari Camp's alluring qualities - and of course, its proximity to Etosha National Park. This friendly safari camp has cozy accommodations set between the mopane trees, an inviting circular swimming pool, a lush green campsite, and ample character. Extending the theme of Etosha as being a 'Place of Legends', Etosha Safari Camp takes it one step further by bringing home the story and spirit of Africa. And the result is - legendary! Here, the typical informal bar or shebeen, well-known and beloved throughout southern Africa, is given expression in the Okambashu ('Our home') restaurant and Oshebeena bar with local colour and country bric-a-brac. It's the place to open doors to the mystery and magic of Etosha, 'Place of Legends'.

    The Etosha National Park is covering an area of 22’270 km², the habitat for 114 species of animals and 340 species of birds. It has been described as one of the best game reserves on the African continent. Game drives will be undertaken with your own guide and vehicle. But the lodge also offers AM and PM game drives inside the park in open vehicles. (not included in tour price)
