NAMIBIA/ANGOLA IN DETAIL

FROM 15th TO 30th NOVEMBER

Here’s a unique opportunity to get to know one of the most spectacular African countries, Namibia, with its rich nature reserves of fauna and flora, its golden dune desert and its coast which, not by chance, is called ‘Skeleton’.

Besides this, why not pop into southern Angola that, after years of civil war, is now being discovered by tourists from around the world. This is, without a doubt, another Adventure Trip. Join us.

DAY 1 (15th/11) – Lisbon – Windhoek

We fly from Lisbon (or another part of the world) to the Namibian capital, picking up our vehicles on the following day.

Day 2 (16th/11) – WINDHOEK

Once all the formalities have been dealt with and everyone has their vehicle, we’ll get all the necessary supplies for the trip. We’ll spend the night in Windhoek, so we can get a first impression of the city.

Day 3 (17th/11) – WINDHOEK – OKAUKUEJO

From the capital, we now head to the country’s most important national park – Etosha. Set in a lake that dried up thousands of years ago, the park covers an area of over 22,000 km2 and is home to more than 100 species of animals, such as rhinos, lions, elephants and impalas. Have your camera ready…

Day 4 (18th/11) – OKAUKUEJO – ONDANGWA

Having crossed the entire park, and brimful of unforgettable memories, we head north, on the way to the Angolan border.

Day 5 (19th/11) – ONDANGWA – BICUAR NATIONAL PARK

After making sure everything is fine with our passports and visas for Angola, we’ll drive up to VIHUA LODGE, set right at the gates of the national park. Along the way, be prepared for the legacy of civil war and our visit to one of the largest tank ‘cemeteries’: all destroyed in one of Angola’s fiercest battles. Thought provoking.

Day 6 (20th/11) – VIHUA LODGE

And now, a day of rest! Well, sort of, because there’s still lots to see and do. If nothing else, take the opportunity for a cool dip in the pool.

DAY 7 (21st/11) – VIHUA LODGE – LUBANGO

Now we head to the provincial capital of Huila. As we travel, enjoy the breathtaking landscape that can be seen from the cliffs of the Tundavala Gap, visit the Chapel of Our Lady of the Mount and, especially, the Christ the King monument, from where you can see the whole city.

DAY 8 (22nd/11) – LUBANGO – NAMIBE

The city was called Mozâmedes, became Namibe and, since 2016, by popular vote, went back to being Mozâmedes. It is the third largest Angolan port, and the gateway to the Namib Desert. Obviously, we’ll cross the Serra da Leba mountain range along one of the most fascinating roads in the world.

DAY 9 (23rd/11) – NAMIBE

Let’s take a drive and look for a plant only to be found in the Namib Desert: Welwitschia Mirabilis.

DAY 10 (24th/11) – NAMIBE – RUACANA

Returning to Namibia, we’ll hopefully cross the border without major complications. As a rule, everyone tries to make things as quick and easy as possible… Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

DAY 11 (25th/11) – RUACANA – EPUPA

Now we move on to the Cunene River waterfalls, also known as the Monte Negro Falls, followed by the Himba villages: it’s going to be a busy day!

DAY 12 (26th/11) – EPUPA – PALMWAG

And now for the Skeleton Coast, meeting many of the tribes that live there. Opuwo and Sesfontein will be two of our ports of call.

DAY 13 (27th/11) – PALMWAG – SWAKOPMUND

Following the coast road all the way, we’ll never be far from the sea as we go through Dorob National Park. Cape Cross is a must, as it houses one of the largest seal colonies in the world.

DAY 14 (28th/11) – SWAKOPMUND – SOSSUSVLEI

And there they are: the dunes! And among them, Dune 45: one of the highest in the world, but we can actually climb it! Spectacular!

Namíbia e Angola

DAY 15 (29th/11) – SOSSUSVLEI – WINDHOEK

As our trip is almost over, why not round things off with a campsite get-together? Let’s all have a great night!

Day 16 (30th/11)

Returning vehicles, off to the airport, and then back home. Saying goodbye is never easy, and this farewell will be no exception. But we’re already looking forward to other Adventure Trips with you in the future!
