Tour itinerary

Day 1-2

Windhoek, Christ Church, Katutura district, National museum

We arrive in the capital Windhoek, check into a hotel. In the evening we head to a restaurant to try the meat of wild animals, for example, zebra and antelope. Yes, in Namibia such dishes are absolutely legal!

Let's begin another day with a walk along the streets of the city, which resembles a cozy European town. We will see the main Lutheran church of the country, built of sandstone blocks. Outside, it resembles a huge gingerbread house - a very unusual look! Nearby is the country's National Museum, where we will learn more about the different tribes that inhabit Namibia. Some of them we will meet right on the streets of the capital. For example, the women of the Himba tribe, who are easily recognizable by their goatskin skirts and hair covered in red clay. You've definitely seen them on the pages of travel magazines!

In the outskirts of the capital we will explore the Katutura district. During apartheid times, this was the only part of the city where locals were allowed to live. The contrast with the city center is striking.

Day 3

Crocodile farm, the largest meteorite on Earth Hoba

In the morning we leave the capital and drive north. After three hours on the way we stop in the town of Otjiwarongo, known for a large crocodile farm. We will take a look at the animals that are kept in the enclosures and learn about the methods of breeding them. Crocodile skins are exported from here to factories where they make bags, shoes and accessories, and we can taste crocodile meat dishes at a local restaurant.

Two more hours on the way - and we reach the Hoba meteorite, the largest ever found on Earth. This huge piece of iron weighing about 66 tons fell on our planet in this very place about 80 thousand years ago.

Another hour on the road and we reach the town of Tsumeb, check into a hotel.

Day 4-5

Etosha national park, Night safari, Cheetahs farm

Let`s head to the most famous national park in Namibia - Etosha (2 hours on the way). Previously, there was the bottom of a huge salt lake, and the earth now resembles huge salt deposits. We will observe up close the noisy bathing of elephant families, the games of funny little lion cubs, the oryx watering hole and shy herds of zebras. A night safari awaits us here - a wonderful experience that you can't get in every African country.

We will spend the night in the park, and after the morning safari head to one of the local farms of cheetahs (2 hours on the way). The owner of the farm picked these animals up as puppies many years ago. Now they are completely tame: they play with farm dogs and can easily walk up to guests and lick their hands.

Another hour on the way - and we check into a hotel in the town of Kamanjab.
