Namibia - Sample Itinerary

The Best of Namibia - 10 nights

Day 1 & 2:
On arrival at Windhoek International Airport, the guests meet the air transfer to Okonjima Bush
Camp. Overnight at Okonjima Bush Camp on a full board basis with activities included.

The Luxury Bush Camp is situated in a wilderness area, 3km from the Main Camp. The Luxury
Bush Camp will offer the same high standards as Okonjima Main Camp. It consists of eight-
thatched African-style chalets and a main lapa-style complex housing reception, lounge with fire
place, kitchen, dining area and curio shop. The building is shaped rather like a camel-thorn pod,
with a campfire area in its curve that overlooks a waterhole, and a swimming pool to one side.
Inside the lapa, amongst loosely scattered kelim rugs, are curved leather and kelim-covered
sofas and easy chairs and wooden coffee tables with a good selection of books on Namibia and
reading matter about Okonjima and the activities of the AfriCat Foundation. Each unique
African-style chalet is completely secluded and private, and are between 80m – 100m apart. The
chalets are a combination of earthy orange clay walls, khaki-green canvas and thatched roofs,
complete with stone birdbath in front. The front 180 degrees is comprised of canvas panels
which may be rolled up inviting you to enjoy your private “bushveld” vista. There is a low wall at
the bottom, and the canvas sections also have gauzed windows if guests prefer them rolled
down. The chalets are sectioned into a bedroom area with a double bed, a small alcove to one
side with easy chairs and a couch that doubles up as an extra single bed for a third person. In
the Alcove are coffee-and-tea-making facilities as well as a mini bar. On the other side of the
bedroom section, behind a partial wall snaking upwards, is the bathroom area with double
washbasin, shower cubicle and separate toilet. These chalets are more than a place to sleep.
They are a place to enjoy, and to relax in.

The Bush Camp cuisine has a definite African flavour. Great care is taken to take cater for
people with special food requirements, in terms of allergies, preferences and health diets
(please inform us of any special diets prior to arrival).
Much of the cooking is done outside on an open fire.

Cheetah tracking on foot with telemetry equipment to monitor project animals,
Visiting the orphaned cats at The AfriCat Foundation,

Little Ongava
Inspired by the spectacular panoramas and cool breezes that the hilltop overlooking Ongava
Game Lodge affords, the three exclusive Little Ongava units are some of the most luxurious
accommodation in Namibia. Literally a camp above a camp - guests can select
to be as private as they wish, or they can integrate and enjoy meals or even soak in the
atmosphere with a cocktail at Ongava's popular bar overlooking the waterhole along with the
Game Lodge guests.

Designed by a leading architect, drawing on historic, natural and cultural cues the design and
decor integrates seamlessly with the Etosha National Park environment. Each spacious suite
commands a private view of the waterhole and the plains beyond. Relax in your private infinity
horizon plunge pool, luxuriate with both indoor and outdoor bathroom and shower facilities.

The dedicated main area, for the exclusive use of Little Ongava guests, lends itself to relaxed,
stylish dining under an African sky. On request, meals can also be served in your climate-

The Damaraland Camp integrates the local community, environment and wildlife, offering a true
wilderness experience in magnificent surroundings. Eight twin tents in east African style face the
southern view, each with en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold showers, basin and toilet. There
is also a family unit comprising two meru tents connected by a bathroom.

Shaded verandas afford a place to sit and read, catch up on mail or just enjoy the endless views.
The lapa combines dining and social area, with an open fire for the chilly evenings. A small rock
pool nestles at the foot of an ancient waterfall in a nearby ravine. Desert adapted elephant
