Hi - I'm in the early stages of planning a trip in early November to South Africa and Namibia. I'm initially thinking of spending around 6 nights in Kruger (weve been there twice before and love it ) before flying to Namibia where I'm thinking of spending 9 nights as follows :-
Fly into Windhoek, pick up hire car and spend 1 night in Windhoek.
Drive to Sossuvlei area for 2 nights
Drive to Swakopmund for 2 nights
Return to Windhoek for flight to Cape Town for 3 nights before flight home.
Weve never been to Namibia before and would welcome any advice on whether the above combination is do-able - driving distances between places seem quite big ? however Ive seen suggested itineraries offering similar combinations but in the reverse order i.e. Etosha followed by Swakopmund and then Sossuvlei before returning to Windhoek. However, having come straight from Kruger I'm keen to break up the 2 'safari' elements of the trip hence my plan to finish at Etosha.
Any thoughts anyone ?
