Day 4: Namib Desert

After breakfast you will drive along the path of the ancient Tschaub River into the Namib Sand Sea including a visit to the famed Sossusvlei, Dune 45 and Deadvlei. Sossusvlei, with its monumentally high dunes, the shadows of their sinuous crests continually changing as the day waxes and wanes, is one of the most surprisingly stunning place in Namibia, with huge star-shaped mountains of sand, the highest estimated at 25 m. The warm colors of the sand, ranging from pale apricot to brick orange and deep red, contrast vividly with the impressive white, sometimes silvery, surfaces of the deflationary clay pans at some of their bases. You will be back at the lodge for lunch. We suggest an afternoon excursion to the Sesriem Canyon, a small yet picturesque canyon carved over millions of years into the Tschaub River.

The landscape is extremely contrasting and varies from dry dolomite hills in the south, to towering peaks with deep gorges in the central region. Surrounded by low-lying hills, Opuwo, which means “the end” in Oshiherero, is a small town in the middle of the bush. The town grew into a permanent settlement and administrative centre for the region during the bush war prior to Independence. Opuwo’s name is indeed appropriate, as it is both the first and last place offering supplies, accommodation and tele-communication in the region.

Day 11: Epupa Falls

Enjoy the day visiting the area and the local Himba villages. The Himba are a tribe of nomadic herders, they are descendants of a group of Herero who fled into the remote north-west after having been displaced by the Nama. They have clung to their traditions and way of life; the beautiful Himba women have intricate hairstyles and traditional jewelry made from iron or shell, both men and woman wear few clothes apart from a loin cloth or goat skinned mini-skirt; they habitually rub their bodies with red ochre and fat to protect themselves from the sun which give them a rich red skin color. Himba homesteads are cone shaped structures made from palm leaves, mud and cattle dung. During the course of a year the family will move from one village to another in search of new pastures for the animals. The best thing is to visit the villages with a local guide, every lodge can organize it, so that he can help you to communicate with them, making the most out of this cultural experience.

The National Park spans an area of 22.270 square kilometres and gets its name from the large Etosha Pan, which is almost entirely within the park. Etosha, meaning “place of dry water”, is a huge, flat pan of about 5.000 square kilometres. The pan provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirage to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland. The pan fills with water briefly in the summer, then converts to a shallow lagoon teeming with flamingos and pelicans. In contrast, the surrounding bush and grasslands provide habitat for Etosha’s diverse wildlife. Zebras and springboks are scattered across the endless horizon, while the numerous waterholes attract rhinos, lions, elephants and large number of antelope including the small Dik-Dik. The park is the home of 144 species of mammals including lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants and giraffes as well as over 340 species of birds.

These large carnivores occasionally prey upon the livestock that roam unprotected in the bush. As a result, carnivores are often regarded as vermin by the livestock and game-farming community and are deliberately trapped and/or killed. Africat has had to take on a large number of captive cats / carnivores no longer wanted by other establishments. Among the carnivores being rescued, researched and rehabilitated by Africat are cheetah, leopard, lion, caracal, wild dog and hyena.
