Day 1: Arrive Windhoek / Waterberg
On arrival at Windhoek International Airport, you will be met and transferred to the Britz depot, where you will collect your hired 4x4 vehicle. Depart Windhoek, heading north travelling through Okahandja and the Waterberg Nature Reserve. The Waterberg Plateau is one of the most spectacular features of the northern region. Towering some 200 metres above the surrounding landscape, the plateau with its sheer cliffs and fascinating rock formations is the habitat and breeding ground to several rare game species.
Day 2: Waterberg / Etosha
Leaving the Waterberg, travel through Tsumeb and onto Etosha National Park. Etosha National Park is one of Africa's great game parks. Etosha owes its unique landscape to the Etosha Pan, a vast shallow depression. A series of water-holes along the edge of the pan guarantee rewarding and often spectacular game viewing. Spend the next 4 nights exploring this amazing landscape. Etosha has 3 rest camps, Namutoni in the east, Halali in the middle and Okaukuejo in the west of the park. At each camp there is a waterhole for game watching, and at night the waterhole is floodlit.
