Planned trip to Namibia

Hi All :hi:

I want to do a trip to Namibia this year with the cab and would like a few pointers if you have:

I will be driving myself with the fam and would love to have a split trip (i.e. few nights in lodges and few nights under the stars), please can you advise of lodges, routes and anything needed for such a trip

I will be hiring an off-road trailer/caravan - any suggestions on this front?

How much time do you have and which parts of Namibia do you want to go to?

I can do 2 weeks.

That's the thing, since I have never been in Namibia, I am open to suggestions. :crazy: Would love to be on the coast side though.

2 weeks is not enough time to see a lot. Go to Swakopmund, Walvis Bay, and then south to Sossusvlei, Solitaire, Aus, Luderitz/Kolmanskop, and back home via Ai Ais/Canon Roadhouse, Keetmanshoop, Kgalagadi.

Even that is a long drive.

In Swakop you can try Alte Brucke resort.
Sossusvlei has a nice camp site
Luderitz you can stay on Shark Island

There are a LOT to see in between these places, but Sossusvlei is a must, and the apfelstrudel at Solitaire is also great.

This is just off the top of my head. We did a similar trip many years ago.

Two weeks is not enough, but its a good start. I guarantee you'll go back for more. Namibia is amazing - don't forget your camera, there are awesome photo opportunities everywhere along the road. :golly:

I am doing a 21 days trip in December and can agree with all the comments....you need plenty time if you want to see everything. This will be our 3rd trip and everytime we plan we find something new to see or do. We are going in at Gobabis, up to Etosha down past Swakopmund, Soussusvlei and Fishriver Canyon and out the bottom back home. Estimated 7000km. :pillepalle:

I used Gondwana Collections and Namibia Reservations for my planning and they arranged everything for me.

Hope this helps.
