               11 Day GRANDE NAMIBIA SAFARI – Accommodated Road Safari
               10 night’s hotel / lodge accommodation

This Safari leads to the highlights of Namibia, which shows you the oldest desert on earth, the
Namib; the great Etosha National Park with game in abundance; the rough terrain of the
Damaraland with the rockengravings at Twyfelfontein and Namibia's coastal resort,
Swakopmund. Namibia also means colourful and friendly people! A visit to a native Himba village
at a guestfarm is offered as an optional excursion.
This Safari is the modern way of traveling: small groups, getting acquainted with many aspects of
the country. Don't rush, take your time and enjoy yourself - also included: a night at a spa, where
you can spoil yourself with wellness treatments.
For the very active and restless visitor, we offer additional optional tours, which you can book and
join individually depending on your interests.
