Your journey will take you in your own car on off-road passages through untamed savannahs and bushveld, leading to an ascent to a mountaintop vantage point. The panoramic view from this platform is sure to leave you spellbound, setting the perfect tone for an exhilarating tour through Namibia.

Day 2 - Fascinating vistas


After a hearty breakfast, you will embark on a mountain adventure. Driving through savanna and bushveld to reach the mountain's summit, you will be enchanted by the breathtaking view from the plateau. Enjoy your off-road experience through the mountains. In the evening, a delicious meal will be served at the Midgard restaurant.

Day 3 - Cross country
After a hearty breakfast, you leave the Midgard Country Estate and travel to your next destination, the Waterberg Plateau Park, which nestles along the base of the cliffs of the Waterberg Plateau. It towers about 200 m above the surrounding landscape. The plateau, with its sheer cliffs and fascinating rock formations, serves as a breeding area for endangered animal species. Wildlife such as buffalo, black rhino, or sable antelope can be found on the plateau. This afternoon, you explore the bush savannah in an open safari vehicle. An experienced guide will explore with you the nature reserve at the foot of the Waterberg and detect game such as oryx or red hartebeest, kudu, or giraffe. You might even come face to face with a rhino.
The lodge terrace is an ideal spot to relax later this day. A refreshing dip in one of the two spring water swimming pools offers a welcome relief to the hot Namibian afternoon sunshine.
Accommodation: Waterberg Plateau Lodge
Day 4 - Mountains and Plateaux
Enjoy the breathtaking vistas from the Water Plateau before taking the road to Ai-Aiba - The Rock Painting Lodge.
On your way, observe the beauty of the Erongo Mountains - a volcanic massif. Marvel at the giant rocks scattered throughout this impressive mountain range. These ancient rock formations are the eroded remains of a volcanic complex about 130 million years old and famous for its countless rock paintings.

Day 5 - En route to the coast
Today, you will once again face the challenges of Namibia's dry riverbeds and gravel plains as you journey off-road along the Khan River until you reach Swakopmund on the west coast.
