Duration: 4 nights escorted tour
Price from: £1149pp
Day 1 Windhoek/Etosha National Park: Depart Windhoek and travel via the little town of Outjo. From there continue to Etosha National Park, which you reach in the early afternoon and undertake your first game drive, in your closed touring vehicle, into the park.
Day 2 Etosha National Park: The morning will be spent in the Etosha National Park, exploring the waterholes along this enormous saltpan, in your closed touring vehicle. Return to the lodge for lunch (additional expense) before a further game drive in the afternoon in Etosha National park. There are close to 114 species of mammal in Etosha, including the black faced impala and the threatened black and white rhino. The Etosha Pan (a flat calcrete depression), contains water only after very good rains and sometimes only for a few days each year, but is enough to stimulate the growth of a blue green algae which lures thousands of flamingos.
Day 3 Etosha National Park: During today's tour of the park, you'll visit some of the new waterholes and take in the seemingly- endless landscapes before heading to your next lodge.
Day 4 Etosha National Park: Begin with a stop in the garden city of Tsumeb with time to visit a mining museum. In the afternoon, reach a privately-owned game farm where you'll embark on a game drive in the hope of encountering an array of wildlife, such as sable antelopes and waterbucks.
