Day 3: Damaraland | Twyfelfontein’s Engravings
Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, seeing its footprints and remarkable rock engravings (petroglyphs) of wild animals — rhinos, elephants, giraffes and zebras, among others. It is thought they were made over a period of 2,000 years by local San hunter-gatherers, offering insight into their ritual and belief systems.
Day 4: Ongava Private Game Reserve | Pastoral People
Take a scenic drive to Kamanjab to the Otjikandero Himba village, home to the last traditional tribe in Namibia. Witness Himba rituals, such as the milking ceremony and smoke bath, and learn about their beliefs regarding holy fire, ancestors and herbal medicine. Continue to the private Ongava Game Reserve bordering Etosha National Park. Then, discover it differently during night game drives, when hungry predators dare out to hunt. After lunch we head directly through the Namib Desert, Skeleton Coast before arriving late afternoon in Swakopmund. We recommend exploring this seaside town on foot this afternoon and perhaps visiting the jetty for sundowners overlooking the cold Atlantic Ocean. Your guide will be happy to recommend a good restaurant for your evening meal.
