Namibia's Etosha National Park: A Three-Day Itinerary

This southwest African desert wonderland know as Namibia is home to a diverse spectrum of wildlife including one of the largest cheetah populations on earth.

Day One: Welcome to Namibia

Windhoek and Swakopmund are also well known Namibian destinations for their German colonial architecture. Its wide open spaces make it the ideal location for a 4x4 self-drive safari. On arrival at Windhoek International Airport, you will be met by a representative from Discover Africa and assisted with the collection of your rental vehicle. With the directions provided, travel north to Okonjima, where you will be spending the night. Be sure to reach the lodge by early afternoon so that you can join the afternoon activity, which you have been signed up for if you so wish.

Day Two: Eastern Etosha

Today you have also been signed up for a morning lodge activity. So prepare for an early start to the day, but its assured to be well worth the effort. After finishing breakfast, make your way further north to the eastern side of Etosha National Park. Accommodation will be arranged for you at Mushara Bush Camp in thatched tented accommodation – a true bush experience you’re unlikely to forget anytime soon. Most travellers opt for car hire Namibia to accommodate their travel plans.

Day Three: Game Viewing

As you have your own vehicle, you can drive yourself around Etosha National Park, taking in waterholes like Tsumcor, Klein Okevi, Chuddop and Klein Namtoni. Or, if you prefer, we can arrange a game drive for you where a guide is provided by the lodge.
