All about the Namibian Explorer (13 Days Cape Town to Windhoek).

Your journey begins at Africa’s Southern gateway. Gaze at the spectacle that greeted the early explorers, as Table Mountain appears to rise from the sea – a stunning setting for a very special city. Explore the ghostly deserts of Namibia, nothing but endless horizons and vast expanses of night stars. Go where giant sand dunes merge with the Atlantic Ocean. Go on safari in Etosha, “the Great White Place”, where the fireside tales will be of lion, rhino, elephant and much more.

  1. Days 1 - 3 Cederberg Area, Orange River, Fish River Canyon

    Before leaving Cape Town, we depart on a township tour in and around Cape Town. This is an included highlight allowing everyone to experience it. Thereafter, we head around Table Bay and continue north through the wheat growing ‘bread basket’ of South Africa.

  2. Days 4 - 6 Namib Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei

    An early start today, heading north we enter the area of the Namib-Naukluft desert, one of the oldest in the world. We base ourselves at Sesriem, a good place to experience the Namib and its many moods. A short distance away is Sossusvlei, surrounded by a dramatic array of sand dunes reputed to be the highest in the world. Magnificent views of the desert can be seen from the top of the dunes,
    some over 300 m high. Make sure you look up at the stars tonight; the desert puts on a show like nowhere else in the world!

  3. Days 7 - 8 Swakopmund

    Founded by the Germans in 1892, their colonial influence is still evident today. Swakopmund has a selection of excellent coffee shops, restaurants & bars as well as many arts and crafts shops selling Namibian curios. There are fine beaches to walk along as well as a great museum, aquarium and galleries to visit. Alternatively, the lovely beach and promenade make for a great relaxing walk – though bathing in the ocean waters may be somewhat chilly!

  4. Days 9 - 10 Brandberg, Etosha Area

    We head to the area of Etosha National Park. Covering 22 700 km2, Etosha is Namibia’s premier nature and wildlife reserve. Situated around the Etosha Pan with a large variety of animal and bird life, the extensive network of gravel roads affords us the opportunity of accessing even the most remote areas of the park. After lunch, and once it has cooled off a bit, we spend the remainder of the day exploring the park’s southern area. Keep an eye out for the striking Oryx and Springbok as these are endemic to desert National Parks! Tonight’s camp is situated just outside the parks boundaries, only 10kms from Anderson Gate. Perhaps a quick dip in the pool or a sun downer on the deck before dinner, followed by a relaxing evening in this interesting bar.

  5. Days 11 - 13 Etosha National Park, Game Drives, Windhoek

    After our breakfast, we head out of the park while doing a game drive. Today’s drive will take us through small rural towns and scenic landscapes. Nestled between the hills, Windhoek is a rather small capital city but has many places of historical interest. This afternoon is spent at your leisure with time to visit the local museum or haggling at the street side markets. There are also many shops for those in need of a bit of retail therapy.

South Africa

With nine different provinces, 11 official languages and 3 capital cities, South Africa will most definitely make you stop in you tracks and go – WOW.

Namibia

This sandy yet spectacular country gained its independence from South Africa in the year of 1990 and its largest city, also the capital city is Windhoek. This is a country of compelling beauty and wide horizons dominated by the brooding and desolate Namib Desert, which has the highest sand dunes in the world.

Meals and menus vary as food is purchased en-route, and is subject to produce that is available
seasonally in the areas we travel through. As we support the local communities along the way, fresh
produce is mostly purchased direct from the producer or local grower and therefore has an organic
appearance. Our safari cooks are able to offer a wide variety of menus with the ingredients available,
even if the produce on offer is not of the same selection as what you may be used to back home.

Our overland vehicles are custom built converted trucks that have seating space for our passengers and a storage area for luggage and all trip equipment. The trucks seat between 27-30 passengers on our camping trips. Most seats are forward facing, though some models have a combination of forward, backward and some inward facing seats with tables. Vehicles have sliding glass windows, and the seating area is raised providing a great advantage for game viewing and photography. Seats are cushioned and there is storage space for personal items like cameras, snacks and day packs in the
seating area.

All of the tours operated by ATC are participation trips meaning that all passengers are expected to
help out around camp. The crew members running the trip will set up a rota system that will be
followed. One day you may be on cleaning duty, the next day you may be on cooking duty and so
forth. This is not only to make the trip easier for all involved but also for you as the passengers to get
to know one another while on trip.
