Day 5: Swakopmund
En route to Swakopmund, we will visit a Himba Village. It is home to the indigenous Himba tribe, who are half-nomadic people. The people are famous for maintaining the traditional way of life of their ancestors up to recent times. External influences have not polluted them, and this reflects in the way they dress, cook, trade, interact and live. An array of wildlife can be seen roaming freely close to the village. Guided tours are offered, and guests can look forward to exploring the village in its natural environment. Later we'll continue northwards and make our way to the coastal town of Swakopmund Reluctantly.

Day 7: Namib Desert
Our next destination is the dune fields that cover the western reaches of the desert. Long dusty roads and sparsely populated farmlands offer us an insight into the vastness of rural Namibia. From the grasslands in the east to the red dunes of the west the slowly changing landscapes represent many faces of this desert country. Later in the afternoon we will be accommodated on the doorstep of the dune fields and if we are lucky, we may fall asleep to the unique calls of the elusive Barking Gecko.
