Etosha Safari

Day 1: Windhoek - Etosha National Park
Guests will be collected from their accommodation in Windhoek at around 7.45. Your tour begins with a drive northwards to Etosha National Park via Okahandja, Otjiwarongo and Outjo. The Garden Town of Okahandja is the former tribal centre of the Herero people. Arrival time in Etosha is scheduled for the early afternoon, with a game drive starting from Andersson's Gate on in. After the rains, large numbers of giraffe and mountain zebra visit Ombika waterhole, as do many waterbirds. The floodlit waterhole at Okaukuejo has been the scene of many an extraordinary wildlife encounter. Lions, black rhino, huge herds of elephant, zebra and giraffe visit, as do many species of plains game.
Meals: Dinner
Accommodation: Okaukuejo or similar
Day 2: Etosha National Park
A full day of game-viewing in Etosha National Park, which is dominated by a massive pan measuring more than 5,000km². Today, this former giant lake is no more than a semi-arid depression in the ground, although seasonal rains ensure that it remains core to the survival of many a local species. In the dry season water is scarce and Etosha's wildlife tend to congregate nearer waterholes. When the rains fall, animals disperse all over the park. Your overnight accommodation is at Halali Restcamp. The floodlit waterhole, Moringa, is named after a mopane woodland that used to surround the waterhole. Elephants have destroyed or pushed over most of them, but it is probably the best place in Etosha to see leopard and white rhino. (Sightings not guaranteed, but a night by the waterhole might prove to be productive).
Meals: Breakfast and Dinner
Accommodation: Halali or similar
Day 3: Etosha National Park
After an early breakfast, another full day's game driving and viewing along the pan is on the cards. On arrival, look to see which animals are drinking and what the others are doing. Antelope may drink at one side of a waterhole, looking to the other. Predators may be lying in wait in the bushes. Because of their height, giraffe can spot lions at some distance. In the late afternoon, you will game drive outside of the park to your overnight accommodation. !Uris Safari Lodge is located 20kms west of the town of Tsumeb, between Lake Otjikoto and Etosha National Park and borders a number of historic German mines.
