From Windhoek to Atlantic

Take a detour to a moonlike landscape in the Namib Desert, where you can admire plants that are more than 1500 years old.

You continue to Walvis Bay, the first port of the country which lives by the rhythm of the ocean and fishing. If you arrive early, you can enjoy the lagoon where flamingos, pelicans and even sea lions can be found.

Approximately 400 km (5 hours 30 minutes' drive).

Spend a night at the hotel on the Walvis Bay's lagoon.

Discovery of Walvis Bay

A generous picnic will follow, after which you will reach the wild creek of Sandwich Harbour located between a bay and a lagoon. Known for its birdlife, historical whaling station and small-scale fishing. Look out for the solo standing managers house of an ambitious project that went bust!

The route goes along the coast and will allow you to understand the names of the places -The Coast of Skeletons...

In fact, many ships have run aground here because of its hostile weather in this bay leaving whale stranded as with their bones all over the place. Interesting though is the fact that the Himba tribe used these whale bones for building their huts back in the day.

Meeting the Ovahimbas

The Himbas – a people who were persecuted in the 19th century by German settlers-are a major part of the history’s country that you will be exposed to on this day.

These majestic and elegant people are a cult of beauty covered in ochre-colored dirt. The tall slender women cover themselves in this dirt to protect their skin from the sun and insects while the men adorn themselves with creative and statement hairstyles symbolising their masculinity.

Discover the Himba village and its people, before joining your evening stopover at Kaokoland, in Onjowewe. The road goes along the Etosha park whose fence is regularly destroyed by elephants, so don't be surprised to come across all kinds of animals...
