Today your big adventure starts. After breakfast you will be met by the guide at the guesthouse, where a short briefing takes place. Then we will depart Windhoek and drive in convoy, heading mostly in the northwesterly direction of Namibia. In the afternoon we will reach our destination, the beautiful Spitzkoppe.

Here we will set up camp at the foot of the mighty Spitzkoppe mountain and enjoy the first night under the starry skies of Namibia.

Spitzkoppe is the Matterhorn of Namibia. It is a mountain of volcanic origin, which surmounts its surroundings at about 700 meters. The mighty granite bubbles form a spectacular landscape, which is very popular with photographers and climbers.
Here you can visit ancient rock engravings from the Bushmen tribe, the famous "Rock Pool", which is sometimes filled with water in the rainy season, and the "Rock Arch" which is also a famous photo opportunity.

Today we start our off-road adventure through the remote Damaraland. We will drive in convoy towards Brandberg, the tallest mountain in Namibia. On route we can have possible sightings of desert elephants, lions, rhinos and other desert animals. In the late afternoon we will set up our first wild camp in a remote and secret gorge, which is a geological wonder. Surrounded by rugged mountain ranges and steep slopes, which dry valleys dominate.

The Zebra Canyon is not visited by many people, making the Canyon a perfect place to set up our wild camp. The Zebra Canyon is located near Brandberg and is part of the Ugab River. The area is a geological wonderland and you can spend hours looking at its beauty.

Our wild bush camp will have a mobile shower and a bush toilet. We'll sleep safely in roof tents on top of the cars, and enjoy a perfect night under the stars, with no artificial lights that spoil the view. The evening will be enjoyed around the campfire with the tranquility of the desert, while your guide prepares dinner on the warm coals.

With a little luck we could see the mighty desert elephants, lions, black rhinos, giraffes and a further variety of animals in front of our lenses. Eventually we will cross over stony slopes to the beautiful Palmwag Campsite. Here, the two swimming pools are very welcoming after a warm morning in the desert, and perfect for an afternoon of leisure.

Today's route leads us north over dusty gravel roads. We will spend the next few days driving though communal land, in other words "through real the real Africa". On the way, we will pass small villages, inhabited by various native tribes. Be aware when driving, as cattle, small livestock and people are often on the side of the road. About 30km before the town called, "Opuwo", we will pass a mountainous landscape on which the rare baobab trees grow. A quick stop here to admire these mighty giants will definitely also occur. The journey continues to Opuwo, where we will fill up our vehicles. A beautiful lodge awaits us on top of a hill overlooking the Opuwo.

An adrenaline rushing, short pass leads us slowly into the lower steppes of Kaokoland. The beautiful campsite is located next to a mountain that is crisscrossed with marble veins. Your guide will take care of the campsite while you take the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful area.

Here we turn off towards Marble Camp. A challenging 4x4 mountain pass leads us to an abandoned marble rail, where we can stop for a quick rest and light lunch.

Thereafter, we continue our journey further on rocky roads that lead us to the Khumib River. The dry riverbed of the Khumib serves us as a perfect Wild camp tonight. We will set up our camp under an ancient ancestral tree and enjoy the silence and freedom that nature offers us.
