The Etosha Express safari starts in Windhoek every Tuesday and ends Thursday afternoons in Swakopmund. You will spend 1 full day and 1 half day game driving through Etosha National Park, one of Southern Africa’s best national parks, searching for predators & prey alike.
Etosha National Park is renowned as one of the best game reserves in Africa, a haven for wildlife, and
supports one of the most important ecological and wildlife systems on the continent. At 22,270 km sq
this huge park hosts an impressive collection of game including the white rhino and endangered black
rhino, lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, giraffe and numerous species of antelope as well as an
impressive 340 species of birds – enough to keep any nature and wildlife enthusiast happy. This safari
starts in Windhoek and ends in Swakopmund.
Upon leaving Etosha, enjoy a scenic drive through Damaraland, stopping along the way to meet the local people and bargain for some souvenirs with the Himba, Herero & Damara people. Accommodation on this safari is provided in twin share accommodation with en-suite bathrooms.
This Group tour to Etosha is ideal for solo travelers or those looking to get the most bank for their buck. Don’t sit around waiting for a travel buddy, book your flights and your seat and enjoy a holiday on your own.
While couples, friends and families are also welcome, these tours are a great chance to meet fellow travelers. Looking to get as much from your $ as possible, opt for a ‘willing to share’ option.
This accommodated safari is priced on a twin share basis so by being ‘willing to share’ means you will not be charged any single supplement for travelling alone. You will then be matched with another traveler of the same gender to share your room. However if you prefer your own room then let us know and a nominal single supplement will be added to guarantee you your own room each night.
