Our 2-week Namibia road trip discovers wild encounters at every turn. We explore mighty dunes & ancient cave paintings, track rhino and cheetah, and explore the barren Skeleton Coast. It is an epic sandy adventure.


Namibia is wide open space; horizons that stretch into great expanses.

Where rippling red rock canyons give way to bleak grey landscapes with life struggling to exist on the margins. Where undulating sand dunes form the backdrop to trees long since dead before dropping into the Atlantic Ocean.

In the central plains, Etosha National Park provides simply one of the greatest safari experiences in the world. Wild rhino, elephant and cheetah roam the mesas and valleys of an ancient land where millennia-old paintings adorn cave walls.

Namibia is best experienced bouncing along gravel roads in your own car. With good value hotels and some of the best scenery you will ever see from a car window, our 2-week Namibia road trip was one of our favourite travel experiences so far.

2-week Namibia road trip: Desolate dramatic landscapes and remarkable wildlife encounters

DAY 1 / ARRIVAL AND DRIVE TO SOSSUSVLEI

If your flight arrives in the morning, make the 4-hour drive south towards Sossusvlei. It could 1 to 2 hours to get through immigration and another 45 minutes to pick up the car. So, make sure you have enough time to get to your hotel in Sossusvlei before it gets dark. If not stay a night in Windhoek and make your way the next day.

The fastest and most scenic way to Sossusvlei is over the Spreetshoogte pass. The pass has excellent views as you drop off the high central plains and into the Namib desert where you may be lucky enough to spy ostrich, springbok, baboons and oryx.

Make a late stop at Solitaire to gather supplies for tomorrow. Fill up with petrol and get food and water for a picnic.

DAY 2 / HIKING THE DUNES OF SOSSUSVLEI

The dunes of Sossusvlei are one of the iconic sights of Namibia. At over 300m high they shimmer in the early morning light as they shift with the wind. At their base lies the famous cracked and dried mud pans from which trees, long ago left for dead, create an eerie atmosphere.

Remarkably this desolate place deep in the desert is easily accessible. A riverbed – dry for many years – creates a break in the dunes through which a road has been cut. The deeper you head into the desert the higher the dunes climb. It’s a spectacular scene.
Walk up Big Daddy dune (the largest in the area), then explore the Deadvlei mud pan before hiking across the desert to the much less visited Hiddenvlei.

All the details for the day can be found on our Big Daddy Dune article.

DAY 3 / DRIVING THROUGH THE NAMIB NAUKLUFT NATIONAL PARK

On day 3 of your 2-week Namibia road trip, make your way across the Namib Naukluft National Park to the cool air of the Atlantic Coast. Begin by driving back through Solitaire, stopping again if you didn’t have enough time to collect photos of the old burnt our cars. Collect some munchies from their fantastic bakery.

Heading north and west on the C14, hop out of the car for the obligatory photo in front of the Tropic of Capricorn sign. Passing through canyons and dry river beds, stop at Kuiseb Pass and take a short stroll up to the viewpoint over the national park.
Next, stop at a picnic spot (marked on the map) and tuck into the baked goods you bought from Solitaire. From here the road drops off the high canyon land and into the flat desert plains. It is now a barren drive through grey and brown rock to the belching factories and unattractive town of Walvis Bay.

At Walvis Bay Turn right and head up the coast to Swakopmund, a cute German colonial town, which is worth strolling around in the afternoon. Check out the pier, seafront and museum before grabbing a local beer or gin at Zonder Naam and settling in for the night.

DAY 4 / EXPLORING THE ATLANTIC COAST AROUND SWAKOPMUND

Today was simply one of our favourite holiday days ever. Head to Walvis Bay Harbour and join the Pelican Point Kayak and Sandwich Harbour 4×4 combo tour.

The first part of the tour is kayaking with seals at Pelican Point. As soon as you arrive in their 4×4 you’ll notice the large colony of cape fur seals mulling around the lighthouse. Shortly after leaving the shore in your kayak you’ll be met by friendly seals playing all around you, eating your oar and trying to get into the boat. It’s a wet, wild, and fun experience.

The afternoon is dedicated to the Sandwich Harbour 4×4 tour. An experienced 4×4 driver takes you over undulating golden dunes nestled beside the Atlantic Ocean. Passing springbok, seals and jackals, the tour guide explains how life survives in this most barren of places. The scenery is phenomenal, the experience exhilarating, and the driving nothing short of expert. The day is topped off with champagne and local oysters from the boot of your 4×4.

A truly excellent experience that’s worth every penny.

DAY 5 / ANCIENT CAVE PAINTINGS OF SOUTHERN DAMARALAND

On day 5 of your 2-week Namibia road trip, head to Spitzkoppe, a group of bald granite peaks rising out of the flat Namib desert. They are a magnificent orange and red hue in the morning light and perfect for photos. Stop at some of the stalls locals have set up, have a chat and check out their houses made of aluminium cans.

Continue onto Brandberg Massif, a mighty mountain with cave paintings that have survived through the aeons. The White Lady of Brandberg painting is thought to be 1,000 to 2,000 years old but some etchings are over 5,000.

The paintings are accessed via a compulsory guided walk which takes 2 hours and costs N$100 per person. Last tours leave at 4 pm.

Next search for the unique desert-dwelling elephant. If you are lucky they can be found along the river banks near the Brandberg White Lady Lodge. A 4WD will help you explore more of the area. Ask the guides on the walk where they were seen last.

DAY 6 / SMELLY SEALS AND THE SKELETON COAST

Today, head off the beaten track and take a long drive through the desolate landscape of the Skeleton Coast. There are plenty of pit stops to spy shipwrecked boats, rusting oil rigs and the largest cape fur seal colony on the planet.

But the real joy is exploring life on the margins – walking up and down dry riverbeds trying to find springbok, oryx, flamingos, ostriches and jackals lurking in the reeds.

The whole day showcases the difficulty of survival in this dry and barren land and you can read all about our exploration of the Skeleton Coast and all the best places to stop here.

End your day at Terrace Bay Resort, as far up the coast as the independent traveller can go. Spend the night chatting to the local fisherman over a beer and enjoying the remoteness of this far-flung location.

DAY 7 / DRIVING TO NORTHERN DAMARALAND

On day 7 of your 2-week Namibia road trip, leave the desolation of the Skeleton coast behind and head inland to Grootberg Lodge in Damaraland. Slowly the land becomes a bit greener and the flat grey plains give way to towering red rock mesas and deep cut valleys. The struggle for life becomes a bit easier and springbok, oryx, giraffe and impala can be spotted amongst the golden grasses as birds fly overhead.

Have a picnic lunch staring at a giraffe or at the wide open views of this remarkable landscape, before arriving at the lodge.

Grootberg Lodge, perched on top of a red rock basalt plateau, is run and owned by the local population. So, it’s not only a great place to stay, with truly magnificent views, it also helps sustain poor rural Namibian communities.

Join the evening game drive (5 pm) and as you search the high plateau you may be as lucky as we were and see lions on the hunt for the resident springbok, mountain zebra and oryx.

Dinner in the lodge includes a dance by the kids from the local primary school. The kids were great, but the supportive enthusiasm of the staff even better.

DAY 8 / BLACK RHINO TRACKING AT GROOTBERG LODGE

Grootberg Lodge offers a range of activities including elephant and black rhino tracking and a visit to a local community. We chose to get up just before dawn and join the black rhino tracking.

You are not guaranteed a sighting and it can be a long bumpy uncomfortable journey up the Klipriver Valley to search for the rhino. If I am honest, the reward of seeing a black rhino in the wild from 300 metres was a little underwhelming.

The real reward from the day was getting a genuine understanding of wildlife conservation in Namibia. The conflict between the needs of wild animals and rural Namibians, the challenges of poaching, and the opportunity and costs of trophy hunting are issues with real impact on the lives of the community.

It’s an educational and informative trip which you can read more about here.

Grootberg Lodge Activities / Rhino tracking (3/4 day) and elephant tracking (1/2 day) depart before sunrise; evening game drive departs 15:30 and lasts 3 hours | Prices: N$1,925 rhino; N$1,370 elephant, N$570 evening game drive | Bookings: can be made at the lodge.

DAY 9 – 11 / WILDLIFE ENCOUNTERS AT ETOSHA NATIONAL PARK

Etosha National Park is quite simply one of the greatest safari parks in the world. In the wet season, huge numbers of game stroll the plains. But as the rains end, they congregate around waterholes in this otherwise dry landscape, creating some of the densest game viewing opportunities imaginable.

Giraffe, elephants and rhino make the daily stroll to and from the waterhole and as the oryx, springbok and zebra congregate to drink so do the big cats that hunt them. It is a magical scene and an essential destination on any 2-week Namibia road trip.

Etosha is designed for the independent traveller. Roads that are easily navigable criss-cross the park and government camps offer accommodation, food and petrol stations. You can find all you need for these three days in our guide to Etosha.

We recommend 3 nights, each at different camps so you can experience all of the park. We were in the car by sunrise every day and were lucky enough to see lions, cheetah, rhinos, giraffe, elephants, and a leopard. But, if you’re not in the mood to search for wildlife, the density of game around the waterholes was unbelievable.

DAY 12 / WALKING ON THE WATERBERG PLATEAU

Take your last morning drive in Etosha then have lunch at Kameldorn Garten in Otjiwarongo on your way to the Waterberg Wilderness Lodge.

The lodge sits at the base of a red sandstone plateau that is rich in birdlife and rare species of small antelope. It is also the site of the local Herero tribe’s last stand in their conflict against the German colonial forces before they were forced into the desert. A conflict in which 2/3 of the local Herero population were annihilated.

In the afternoon take a stroll around the valley floor, soak up the relaxing atmosphere and let the pace drop. An excellent dinner is included and the staff are friendly and helpful.

DAY 13 / LEARNING ABOUT BIG CAT CONSERVATION IN OKONJIMA

Join the early morning guided walk on the Waterberg plateau. It can be tough to spot animals but the guides are knowledgeable about the flora and fauna in the area. During the 2 hour, 30-minute stroll you ascend the plateau, learn about droppings, play a few games and are rewarded with sweeping views over the Kalahari.

Next drive to Okonjima Lodge. This lodge used to be a private farm but converted itself into a conservation area and is now home to the AfriCat foundation. The foundation is committed to the long-term survival of Namibia’s larges carnivores and its 200 square km privately fenced nature reserve is home to abundant wildlife.

Cheetahs, at risk from farmers outside the park, have been brought here, looked after and reintroduced into the park. Here they join the antelope and leopards that called the place home when the park was fenced in.

The lodge runs both a leopard tracking drive and a cheetah walking tour in the mornings and afternoons. Leopards are only spotted from the safety of the jeep, but since the cheetahs have been habituated, it’s possible to follow them on foot under the strict instructions of your guide.

Okonjima Activities / Morning drive begins at 6:30; afternoon drive begins at 15:30. Both the cheetah walking and leopard tracking tours last about 3 hours | Price: N$ 700 per person per drive | Bookings: can be made at the lodge.

DAY 14 / WINDHOEK AND DEPARTURE

Take your morning drive, then spend a bit of time relaxing back at Okonjima Plains Camp.

They have beautiful chalet rooms and a large, communal area decorated with native flair. Enjoy their delicious BBQ breakfast, then spend a bit of time catching up with things on their very good WIFI, perusing a book from their collection, taking a dip in the pool, or just admiring the views from their comfy lounges.

If your flight times work, head straight to the airport from Okonjima.

If not, spend the night in Windhoek, breaking up the drive by stopping at the craft market at Okhandja. Backerei Dekker, just near the market, serves decent snacks and coffee.

You may have noticed, this 2-week Namibian road trip doesn’t include Windhoek. In our opinion, it’s not the best Namibia has to offer and can easily be skipped.

If you need to stay for flight times, or if you want to, we recommend staying at MonteBello Guesthouse.

ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED TO HELP PLAN YOUR OWN 2-WEEK NAMIBIAN ROAD TRIP

We believe that a little pre-planning, research, and understanding what you are looking for in a destination will help make your travels far more successful. Here’s some further information we think you might need to plan your own 2-week Namibia road trip.

If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments and we’ll be happy to get back to you.

GETTING TO NAMIBIA

Most international flights arrive at Hosea Kutako International Airport, a 40-minute drive from Windhoek. Some African destinations also fly into Walvis Bay. You may find it easier to connect from South Africa.

CHECK FLIGHTS

GETTING AROUND NAMIBIA

There is not much public transport in Namibia. Hiring a car (or a tour) is the most sensible option. Only a few of the roads in Namibia are paved with speed limits of up to 120 km/h. The rest are different levels of gravel road. Some you can fly along at 100km/h, others you are slowly bouncing over ruts.

HIRING A CAR IN NAMIBIA

You have 4 main options when it comes to hiring your own car in Namibia. Whatever you hire, make sure you take insurance as you can be stung for gravel damage.

Also, make sure you know how to change a tyre – in our 2 weeks in Namibia, we had a cracked windscreen and two flat tyres.

OPTION 1 / 2WD SEDAN – AROUND US $25 PER DAY

While we saw some 2WD sedans making the journey on this 2-week Namibian road trip, we would not recommend it. In some places, the roads are rutted for long periods of time. A regular 2WD car would slow you down considerably and be very uncomfortable.

OPTION 2 / HIGH CLEARANCE 2WD – AROUND US $65 PER DAY

We hired a high clearance 2WD vehicle which got us everywhere we went on this itinerary without a problem. The only occasion where a 4×4 would have been better was searching for elephants around Brandberg. On reflection, we’d probably recommend hiring a 4×4 for the extra flexibility, but only just.

OPTION 3 / 4X4 VEHICLE – AROUND US $85 PER DAY

There are many benefits to hiring a 4X4 in Namibia. They are slightly faster and more comfortable on Namibia’s gravel roads, you’re higher for game viewing and, you have maximum flexibility if you really want to get off the beaten track. All this comes at an additional US$20 per day.

OPTION 4 / 4X4 WITH ROOF CANOPY – AROUND US $125 PER DAY

This can be an economical way to see Namibia because you’re sleeping above your wheels, but it comes with 2 main costs. Firstly, comfort; secondly, rigmarole. Packing up the canopy and putting all your bits away can be a lengthy process which you can’t really do in the dark – potentially missing those sunrise opportunities.

BOOK CAR HIRE

BEST TIME TO GO TO NAMIBIA

Namibia is fiercely hot in the summer months of November to February and walking in the Namib desert or Damaraland is much more comfortable in winter (June to September).

Etosha has two seasons. The wet season runs from November to May and the dry season from June to October. In the wet season the roads are muddy and animals spread out over the wide plains. The dry season forces animals to congregate around the waterholes creating the perfect environment for great game viewing.

The later in the dry season the better.

This makes September to October the optimal time to visit, but peak season means you must book well in advance. Namibia is a large desolate country so despite being there over peak season, at no point did it feel crowded.

COSTS OF OUR 2-WEEK NAMIBIA ROAD TRIP

The total cost of our 2-week Namibia road trip, for two people, was N$72,500. With Nov 2018 exchange rates of N$18.5 to the British Pound; N$14.5 to the US dollar; and N$16.5 to the Euro, this equates to:

4 day Cappadocia Itinerary
US $5.000
4 day Cappadocia Itinerary
GBP £3,925
4 day Cappadocia Itinerary
EUR €4,400

The Namibian Dollar is fixed 1:1 with the South African Rand which is accepted as currency everywhere in Namibia. Most hotels and guest houses accept credit and debit cards. Some of the smaller stores and petrol stations take only cash.

WHAT WOULD WE DO DIFFERENTLY?

We wanted to drive the Skeleton Coast because it was more off the beaten track. But, in hindsight, it was a long drive across monotonous grey flat landscape. There are also few shipwrecks remaining. While the night at Terrace Bay was a great experience, given the time it takes to get there, it’s probably not enough to include on this trip.

If you would like to skip the long Skeleton Coast drive, on day 5 drive from Swakopmund to Brandberg via Cape Cross (rather than Spitzkoppe). Then on day 6 (rather than heading up the Skeleton Coast) drive from Brandberg to Grootberg Lodge via the cave drawings at Twyfelfontein.

This gives you an extra day. If you also scrap the day at Waterberg Plateau you could have two days to explore Kunene (northwest Damaraland) and visit a remote Himba village. Although to do this you may need to join a tour as driving can be hard.

If we did this trip again, this is probably the option we would go for.

On the final night in Etosha, rather than staying at Halali Camp we would stay in Mushara Lodge. This is a more comfortable lodge and will reduce the driving on the following day by an hour.

BOOKING TIPS FOR YOUR 2-WEEK NAMIBIA ROAD TRIP

Namibia is an easy country to travel in with facilities well set up for tourists. Most of our accommodation had good WiFi to make bookings as we went and staff were friendly and very helpful in organising tours. However, some accommodation – particularly in remote areas – gets booked out early and some tours can be very popular at peak times. Read on for our tips for what to book before you travel.


ACCOMMODATION IN NAMIBIA

In the cities of Windhoek and Swakopmund you will have no problem finding accommodation with numerous options available throughout the year.

However, we booked 7 months in advance and the camps inside Etosha were fully booked. We had to check booking websites every day and wait for cancellations – which fortunately did happen.

So, ideally book accommodation in Etosha, Okonjima, Sossusvlei and Damaraland at least 9 months to a year in advance. Check current prices or see all our accommodation choices for this 2-week Namibian road trip below.

Alternatively, if you’re thinking about camping, here are 10 of the most stunning campsites in Namibia.

BOOKING TOURS IN NAMIBIA

Guest lodges where you are staying the night will have availability for their own tours, which you can organise when you arrive. However, the Pelican Point Kayak and Sandwich Harbour 4×4 should be booked a week in advance. You can book a combo tour, which includes kayaking in the morning and Sandwich Harbour 4×4 in the afternoon.
