“After participating in Helen’s inaugural Rock My Namibia Adventure tour, all I have to say is…not only would I repeat that same tour again, but I will absolutely be joining more of Helen’s other tours in future! It was an unforgettable, adventurous and inspiring experience, full of all the spectacular landscapes and fun activities that Namibia has to offer. I’ve been back home for a day now, and all I can think is “take me back to Namibia…let’s do it again!”.

CAMILA / USA / ROCK MY NAMIBIA ADVENTURE 2018

Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek

Arrive in Windhoek and relax and get to know your fellow travellers during a welcome meal and a beer or two at a fantastic local restaurant!

Your Rock My Namibia Adventure starts here and you’re going to love it!

*  If you have the time and can arrive earlier, we can organise any other activities you wish to do. Additional accommodation and activities charged separately.

Popular activities include a tour of the Katutura township and a visit to the Penduka Projecta social enterprise and training centre for local women in Namibia.

Or you could visit the Naankuse Foundation Wildlife Sanctuary where you can get up close to some of Namibia’s most incredible animals.

  • Meals: Dinner
  • Accommodation: Tented Camp (Shared Facilities)
  • Activities: None

Day 2: Sesriem & the Namib-Naukluft National Park

Today we’ll leave Windhoek and drive to Sesriem, the starting point for our journey to see Namibia’s epic sand dunes.

You will see the landscape change as we drive, first over bleak landscape and gravel roads, to grass savannah and farmland before we reach the deep orange sand dunes of the Namib Desert.

You will be in absolute awe of this other-worldly, almost post-apocalyptic, and photogenic landscape. Sossusvlei is home to a variety of desert wildlife including oryx, springbok, ostrich, and a variety of reptiles.

In the afternoon, you can relax by the pool!

In the evening, we’ll enjoy dinner at nearby Sossusvlei Lodge which has one of the most impressive buffets you’ll ever have, with beautiful meat cooked to order and an array of other dishes!

  • Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
  • Accommodation: Lodge (Ensuite)
  • Activities: None

Day 3: Sesriem, Sossusvlei, Deadvlei & Dune 45

Early in the morning, we’ll make our way into the park to climb Dune 45. It’s a tough hike to the top, but incredibly rewarding, with fantastic views over the area.

From Dune 45 we’ll head further into the park towards Deadvlei, a salt pan filled with 900-year-old dead camel thorn trees and Big Daddy, the tallest sand dune in Sossusvlei (but not the tallest in Namibia, that accolade goes to Dune 7) but very impressive indeed.

You will have the opportunity to climb Big Daddy (the views at the top are out of this world) and then slide down the sand dune into Deadvlei.

Alternatively, you can take the shuttle if you don’t fancy the walk or if you want to spend more time on photography in Deadvlei.

After lunch, you have the option to visit the stunning Sesriem Canyon, a deep chasm carved through the rocks by water.

The canyon’s name was coined when early settlers used it as a water source, using six lengths of leather (‘ses riem – six thongs) tied together to lower buckets into the water at the base of canyon.

The canyon is amazing, but if you feel like relaxing at the lodge, that’s your choice!

In the evening, we’ll cook a delicious and traditional Namibian braai (bbq – vegans & veggies catered for) at the lodge.

  • Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  • Accommodation: Lodge (Ensuite)
  • Activities: Dune 45, Deadvlei, Big Daddy, Sesriem Canyon

Day 4: Swakopmund

Early in the morning, there will be an opportunity for those who want to go hot air ballooning over the Namib Desert (additional cost – approx. $480 USD) – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

After breakfast, we’ll make our way to the town of Swakopmund, the adventure capital of Namibia, where we’ll spend the next 3 nights.

On the way, we’ll stop at the Solitaire outpost, where you can see cute ground squirrels and pick up a piece of Namibia’s best apple pie!

Once we arrive in Swakopmund, there’ll be some time to chill before we go out to dinner at a great local restaurant in the Mondesa Township.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Dinner
  • Accommodation: Lodge (Ensuite)
  • Activities: None

Day 5: Swakopmund & Sandwich Harbour

Today we’ll head to Walvis Bay where we’ll set sail on a catamaran in search of the Namibian Marine Big 5: whales, dolphins, mola, leatherback turtle and seals.

When we return to land, we’ll jump in our 4 x 4 vehicles and drive across the epic sand dunes of Sandwich Harbour.

This is a great and exciting adventure and you will have the chance to see pelicans, flamingoes, black-backed jackals, and other wildlife as we explore the Namib Desert.

However, the highlight of this trip is seeing the sand dunes that run straight into the Atlantic Ocean. Simply breathtaking!

Our excursion will conclude with a lovely lunch (including champagne & oysters) on the dunes.

The evening is free, but we’ll book a table at one of our favourite restaurants for dinner for anyone who’d like to join.

  • Meals: Breakfast & Lunch
  • Accommodation: Lodge (Ensuite)

Swakopmund also has great restaurants (one of them has the best desserts I have ever tasted) and good nightlife.

  • Meals: Breakfast
  • Accommodation: Lodge (Ensuite)
  • Activities: None

Day 7: Cape Cross Seal Colony, Henties Bay & Spitzkoppe

After saying goodbye to Swakopmund, we’ll head towards the Skeleton Coast, stopping by one of the famous Skeleton Coast Shipwrecks on the way.

We’ll then head towards the Cape Cross Seal Colony. l’d hold your nose though, it’s pretty stinky but the noises they make are absolutely hilarious!

We’ll stop by Henties Bay for lunch before we continue our journey to stunning and majestic Spitzkoppe, one of the most recognisable places in all of Namibia.

Spitzkoppe, which has been called ‘The Matterhorn of Africa’, is a series of granite peaks and rock formations that have been the backdrop for a number of movies and a great place for photography.

In the afternoon, we’ll take a guided walk to marvel at the giant boulders.

In the evening, we’ll relax at our camp which has incredible views over the mountains, enjoy another braai and spend the night sleeping under an epic starry sky!

There may even be a little surprise in store…

Accompanied by a guide and translator, we’ll visit a Himba village to learn about the Himba culture and their traditional practices.

Here you will have the chance to ask questions and talk with the residents of the village. Meeting a tribe should always be a 2-way process, so please come with an open mind.

From there we’ll head into Etosha National Park and safari our way to the lodge. 

Etosha is one of the most incredible and unusual safari destinations on the planet with a wide variety of animals including lion, rhino (white and black), elephant, giraffe, and antelope, so you will not be disappointed!

The following morning, we’ll take another game drive through the park to spot even more animals.

The afternoons/evenings are free at the lodge* and you can swim or sit by the waterhole. You’re in for a couple of magical evenings!

I can’t recommend it enough.”

    • Optional activities.
    • Tips for local guides.

    Travel insurance is essential for ALL Rock My Adventure trips. Your health and safety when travelling is of the utmost importance, so it is vital that you have travel insurance policy that covers you for your trip to Africa. Adequate travel insurance is a condition of your contract with us and you will not be able to join a trip without it. You must be satisfied that your insurance fully covers all your personal requirements including cancellation charges, theft, medical expenses and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. Your insurance should also cover you for any adventurous activities that you wish to do – this includes the ‘included’ activities on the tour and any ‘optional’ activities. Please be aware that some hazardous activities such as (but not limited to) white water rafting on grade 5 rapids, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, safari walks, bungee jumping and sky diving may not be covered by all policies, so you may have to take out a higher level of cover. Medical care is not free in Africa and even the cost of getting to hospital can be super expensive, so you need to be covered in case of a medical emergency, including air ambulance evacuation and repatriation in the event of accident or illness. For example, if your appendix bursts whilst we are in the Serengeti, you will need to be evacuated by helicopter to Nairobi. Without insurance you would need to pay for that out of your own pocket. If you are bringing along any electrical equipment such as cameras and laptops, you should also ensure your insurance covers those items too. Some policies only have this as an add-on. If you are travelling to an area that is subject to foreign office warnings, this may void your travel insurance, so you may need to take out an additional policy for the days you are in the danger zones. Please always read the small print. Your tour leader will collect your travel insurance details on the first day of your trip, so please have the following information ready for them:

    • Name of insurance provider.
    • Your policy number.
    • The telephone number to call in the event of an emergency.
    • Your next of kin name and number.
