2 Weeks in Namibia - Your Ultimate Itinerary!

Day 1 - Windhoek

We flew to Windhoek and went straight to the car rental office. Entering the country and picking up the rental car took us up to 3 hours (keep in mind when planning your arrival!). Once we got the car, we drove to the first camp in the city, called the Urban camp (recommended, as it is close to the city, it's cozy, it has WIFI and a pool). Although we rented out a 4x4 jeep with a tent on the roof, we chose "glamping" for the first night to get some proper sleep :)

Windhoek - Okonjima Lodge: 224 km, ca. 2 h 30 min

Day 2 - Okonjima Nature Reserve

On the next day, we drove to the Okonjima Nature Reserve - more specifically to the lovely Okonjima Lodge. Once checked in, we booked one of the tours - the so called Cheetah walk - it's super cool, basically it is a safari with the goal of finding the cheetahs and encounter them by walking close by. We did it and the experience was amazing, an unforgettable event. Due to its uniqueness, we've put this reserve on our list of most spectacular places to visit in 2019!

Day 3 - Okonjima Nature Reserve - (Waterberg Plateau) -Etosha National Park

The 3rd day, we headed towards the world-famous Etosha National Park. Now, here's a thing. On the way from Okonjima Nature Reserve to Etosha, there is apparently a lovely area called Waterberg Plateau. Well, we both missed it somehow, as we haven't really planned this trip... but we heard so many nice things about it. Don't do the same mistake and put it onto your travel itinerary! If you decide sleeping over at Waterberg, consider going for a 15-day long trip! :) Once on the way to Etosha, check into the beautiful Mondjilla Safari Camp. When settled in, continue to the Andersson's Gate, get a permit and start your self-drive safari!

Waterberg Plateau - Mondjilla Safari Camp: ca. 2.30 hours, 236 km

Day 4 - Etosha National Park

Nope, it is not enough to check out this gigantic area full of wildlife in one single day. We started our day very early by driving to Etosha in the sunrise hours. You should do it too, as the majority of animals are active during the sunrise and sunset time. We did lots of driving in the park which turned out to be a stupid idea. We haven't seen many animals by doing so. Just park your car at a waterhole and wait. All kinds of animals will come sooner or later! Sleep over at Mondjilla Safari Camp or Etosha Safari Camp.

Etosha National Park - Mowani Mountain Camp: ca. 3.30 hours, 296 km

Day 5 - Damaraland - Twyfelfontein

After 3.30 hours of driving through the beautiful landscape of Damaraland, we reached the gorgeously situated Mowani Mountain Camp - which turned out to be one of our highlights on this trip! We highly recommend visiting this camp! Why? The camp itself has a good infrastructure, the landscape around is surreal and there is even a hiking path in this area. Now it's up to you, if you want to drive another 20 min to Twyfelfontein and do a tour to see the ancient rock engravings or if you do it the first thing in the morning. In our case, it was the next day, as we needed some rest. The engravings are quite a touristy thing, it's a guided tour, which story is interesting but don't go for it if walking in a line is not your thing.

Day 6 - Spitzkoppe

In the next morning, we drove to the scenic Spitzkoppe, a group of granite peaks in the Namib desert, also called the Matternhorn of Namibia. We checked into The Community Rest Camp and we advise you to do it too! It is such a lovely camp with beautiful surroundings and walking paths. What is more, we were lucky to see daisies, we stumbled upon quiver trees and jump from one boulder to another.

Day 7 - Swakopmund

Once arrived in Swakopmund, we went for a lunch in one of the restaurants at the coastline. It's lovely and super delicious, and yes, it's all about the fish dishes... go for it! We even saw a dolphin while sitting in the restaurant. Afterwards we also walked a bit through the city and explore it's craft market. It was the first time we did some sightseeing in a Namibian city. In the afternoon, we went for the quad biking adventure! It's a MUST DO!

Swakopmund - Cape Cross: 1.40 hours, 131 km

Day 8 - Ship Wreck - Cape Cross

On day 7, it was all about the seals! The first stop though was the Ship Wreck on the way to Cape Cross. Although the story behind it is not nice, it is famous among photographers. Afterwards we headed to the Cape Cross Lodge & Campsite, checked in and slept a bit. Once rested, we drove to the Cape cross and observed the thousands of seals and listened to their strange sounds :)

Day 9 - Walvis Bay - Dune 7

Another day full of animal encounters - we saw flamingos and dolphins at Walvis Bay and took lots of photos! Another thing we did was climbing the Dune 7, which is located about 10 min drive from the city. It's well worth it, if you wanna stretch your feet a bit and enjoy the beautiful views from the top. PS: It's not that easy to climb a dune though! ;)

Walvis Bay - Agama River Camp: 3.30 hours, 264 km

Day 10 - Walvis Bay - Quiver Trees - Solitaire - Agama

The next day we drove from Walvis Bay to the place with a few Quiver Trees (just a 15 min stop but well worth it), then we continued to Solitaire, where we ate the famous apple strudel (it's delicious but in our opinion not really a must) and took some photos of "abandoned" cars. The final stop and our chosen place to stay this day was the Agama River Camp, about 30 min from Solitaire.

Agama River Camp - Sossulvei: 1.30 h, 110 km

Day 11 - Namib Naukluft National Park / Sossulvei

Day 11 was finally the day where we got to explore the most famous sight in Namibia among travellers - Sossulvei, the salt and clay pan in the Namib Naukluft National Park. This place is simply surreal, however the whole Park itself with its red sand dunes is also jaw dropping!

Agama River Camp - Namibgrens Camp: 1.15 h, 86 km

Day 12 - The Spreetshoogte Pass - Namibgrens Camp

1780 m above sea level, there is a mountain pass called the Spreetshoogte Pass. We "accidentally" stumbled upon it while driving from Sossulvei back towards the capital city. It was the first real elevation on this trip, offering picnic areas with spectacular viewpoints. Amazing! Don't skip it! After 15 min drive, we arrived to the lovely Namibgrens Camp - it's actually a farm with lots of goats, horses etc. with a few campsites and beautiful lodges. While the camp's entrance didn't look so welcoming, the campsite itself was one of our favourites (besides the Mowani Camp).

Namibgrens - Windhoek N/aan kuse Sanctuary: 3.15 min, 247 km

Day 13 - Windhoek N/aan kuse Sanctuary - Windhoek

On day 13, we drove to the N/aan kuse sanctuary to do a carnivore feeding tour (make sure to prebook!). So we started the tour and saw how caracals, wild dogs, baboons, cheetahs, leopards and lions were fed. Honestly speaking, it was an awesome experience and we still talk about it - don't miss it, not this one!

Sleep over at Urban Camp in Windhoek.

Day 14 - Flying Back from Windhoek

Day 14 was the saddest one :/ - we had such a great time in Namibia that we simply didn't want to go home but we simply had to :) This trip was just awesome. Outstanding...
