Itinerary

DAY 1: KALAHARI (1 NIGHT)

We don’t waste any time on this camping safari. Upon arrival in Windhoek we will get you going in no time to your first destination which is about 3-4 hours from Windhoek. So if your arrival flight is only in the afternoon we will have to add a night in Windhoek to your itinerary.

Once you have your vehicle you will need to go stock up on some supplies for your road trip. After that its time to hit the road. Your first destination is Anib Campsite just outside Marienthal. Once you are here you can just relax after setting up camp or you can go on a nature walk where you could spot some animals and birds. There is also a pool at reception if you fancy going for a swim. Take it easy tonight as there is a long but pleasant drive ahead of tomorrow.
