The route


Stunning Deserts & Wildlife

Namibia's landscapes are breath-taking and diverse, as is it’s wildlife, making it a true paradise for adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike.

On this three week guided self drive adventure you will follow the best of Namibia’s “backroads”. This will include tar, plenty of dirt, some sand and rough tracks. At the end of your adventurous day you will rest in hand selected lodges and hotels that have been hand picked for their location or their uniqueness.

You can expect excellent quality meals during the adventure. Breakfast and dinners will be mostly provided by your hotel or lodge. Your 4x4 will have a full set of picnic gear and a fridge so that we can have picnic lunches along the way.

There are optional activities to choose from or simply relax in the lodge and enjoy the Namibian bush.
