Olive Grove Guest House

Windhoek

Day 1: Windhoek

Olive Grove Guest House Location Map

The capital of Namibia, Windhoek is set amongst green hills in the centre of the country. It is a relatively small city, and has a very relaxed feel to it, with little of the angst associated with the other major cities in Southern Africa.  It is also one of the cleanest cities in Southern Africa.

The city has a colonial legacy that is reflected in its many German eateries and shops, and also in the widespread use of the German language.

Windhoek has an interesting mix of historical architecture and modern buildings, many of which are worth a look, including the Alte Feste old fort, the 1896 Christuskirche Christ Church, and the more contemporary Supreme Court.

Just outside of Windhoek (25 km away) you will find the Daan Viljoen Nature Reserve, which is a pleasent place to spend a few hours if you want to get away from the city and into the bush. One of the great attractions here is that you can walk around the reserve, following the guided trails, as the reserve is only home to non-dangerous wildlife, including blue wildebeest, zebra, kudu, baboons, gemsbok, eland and springbok, plus over 200 species of birdlife.

Olive Grove is an upmarket establishment situated close to the city centre in a quiet, peaceful area. The guest house takes homely atmosphere to a different level. Each room is decorated with the same elegant and simplistic emphasis on decor. For those looking for the very best, the spacious Executive Suite has its own private lounge and dining area, a separate bedroom and luxurious bathroom, which begs for pampering and self-indulgence.

The indoor lounge is tastefully decorated, with comfortable chairs and a fireplace in front of which to relax and read a magazine. One of Olive Grove's main features is the large veranda in front of every room, with tables and chairs for 'al fresco' dining. Home-style food is rounded off with great presentation, pushing up the level of the dining experience. The plunge pool and peaceful garden both invite the visitor to make the most of Namibia's open skies.

Kulala Desert Lodge

Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert

Days 2 - 3: Sossusvlei and the Namib Desert

Kulala Desert Lodge Location Map

Kulala Desert Lodge is located within the arid Namib Desert on the 37,000 hectare private Kulala Wilderness Reserve, and is the closest lodge to the iconic dunes of Sossusvlei.

The main lodge area has a lounge, bar, dining area, plunge pool, and wrap-around veranda overlooking the waterhole - a perfect location to view and photograph the desert vista. The overall setting is a true delight to the senses, bringing together the rhythm of Namibia, wholesome meals and intimacy. A waterhole in front of camp attracts a number of local wildlife (such as gemsbok, springbok, ostrich and jackal).

Activities at Kulala Desert Lodge revolve around early morning guided nature drives to the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei through the private gate on the Tsauchab River. Scenic nature drives, walks and guided electric powered 'fat bike' excursions are also offered through the private Kulala Wilderness Reserve to take in the incredible views and to catch a glimpse of the desert wildlife which includes gemsbok (oryx), bat-eared fox, brown hyena and many bird species.

Visits to Sesreim Canyon can also be arranged. This fascinating geographical formation is well worth a visit, and is the result of millions of years where water carved its way into the earth. It is 3 km long and the views from the top are breathtaking while walks through the canyon reveal distinct geographical layers.

Another option, at an extra cost, is early morning ballooning, beginning at first light. The balloon safari offers a truly unique experience to soar silently above the magnificent sand dunes and desert, with a champagne breakfast being served at your landing site.

Accommodation at Kulala Desert Lodge comprises 23 thatched and canvas 'kulalas' (meaning 'to sleep' in Oshiwambo) with en-suite bathrooms and verandas. Each tent is built on a wooden platform to catch the cooling breezes and has a deck on the flat rooftop where bedrolls can be placed for guests to sleep out under the myriad of stars that Namibia's clear skies portray.

The 2 family tents can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. Both family tents consist of 2 bedrooms, with their own bathroom and entrance, but connected by a wooden deck.

The Strand Hotel

Swakopmund

Days 4 - 5: Swakopmund

The Strand Hotel Location Map

Surrounded on 3 sides by the Namib desert, and on the 4th by the Atlantic Ocean, Swakopmund is an interesting blend of African and German heritage, and one of the most friendly towns in Southern Africa. Many of the locals are of German descent, and together with its beautifully preserved German colonial architecture, the availability of German style beer, and the precise orderly manner which is evident everywhere, you would be forgiven for thinking you were in a small town in Germany, and not on the edge of the Namib Desert.

Probably the most popular single activity is quad-biking over the large red sand dunes that start from the edge of the town, or try sandboarding down the dunes as an alternative. The Cape Cross Seal Reserve is a 125 km drive north of Swakopmund, and home to breeding colonies of thousands of Cape fur seals. 

Several operators also offer scenic flights. The 2 most popular options are to take a flight north up the coastline, over the Skeleton Coast and back round, or to  fly across the desert to the Sossusvlei Dunes and back to Swakopmund along the coastline, taking-in a number of shipwrecks.

With it's extensive restaurants, bars, lounges, deli and sea-facing terraces, the Strand Hotel is the social epicentre of Swakopmund.

Uniquely located on the iconic and historic Swakopmund Mole and surrounded on 3 sides by the Southern Atlantic Ocean. On the fourth side, it backs up to the town's central park, through which it is a short 5 minute walk to the historic centre of this charming German/Victorian era colonial seaside town.

Arriving at the Strand is a dramatic experience as you pass through its 13m high and 9m wide Ocean View Atrium which travels right through the hotel, offering sea views at either end. Off this Atrium Lobby is the main Reception, consisting of an inviting open fireplace which rounds off the warm welcome.

All the 125 rooms and suites offer uninterrupted sea, beach or garden views. The Standard Rooms have panoramic sliding windows from which to admire the views. The Luxury Rooms have a 'step out' balcony, whilst the Suites have a 'sit on' balcony. The Presidential Suite has its own private terrace.

Mowani Mountain Camp

Damaraland

Days 6 - 7: Damaraland

Mowani Mountain Camp Location Map

Between the Ugab and Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoilt wilderness. This area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations, archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora. It is also the southern-most roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.

This is where you will find the Mowani Mountain Camp, nestled amongst the boulders of this beautiful area on a high spot commanding distant views over the landscape.

Adventures and activities available at Mowani include trips in a hot air balloon, hiking through the magnificent scenery, and early morning game drives to track the rare desert-adapted elephant and deset black rhino with an experienced guide in an open Land Rover. Or you can choose to just relax around the pool and enjoy the spectacular surroundings.

Guests can also visit the prolific site of Twyfelfontein. This wonderful archaeological site offers more than 2,500 engravings as well as various paintings, and is probably the finest example of rock engraving in southern Africa.

After a day full of activities, head to the viewpoint sundowner spot and enjoy a cold drink, while gazing around the 180 degrees of spectacular desert scenery as the sun sets in the distance.

The luxury tented en-suite accommodation, each with an open air en-suite bathroom and private deck overlooking the desert landscape, is built unobtrusively so as to ensure minimum impact on the natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents meant that very little excavation was needed in order to create this special oasis.

The Luxury Room is west-facing and is closest to the main lodge, making this ideal for guests who are not too mobile.  The 5 Standard View Rooms have views into the boulder-strewn valley, and the 3 View Rooms face east with views across the valley. The 4 Superior View Rooms face west with panoramic distant views.

The Mini Suite is completely private, and is cocooned in the rocks with granite close-up boulder views. The Mountain Suite has spectacular wrap-around views, with a lounge and private dining area, and an outdoor bush bath and shower with gorgeous views as well.

Much care has been taken with the design of the main areas, creating the impression of an African Village, with dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders which are scattered around the outcrops.

Ai-Aiba Lodge Location Map

Activities during your stay here include morning or afternoon nature drives to the Bushman rock art. Each drive takes about 3 hours as you travel through the scenic reserve with selected stops at sites to view and learn about Bushman rock art, which depict age‐old hunting rituals, human and animal life.

San Living Museum Tours are a unique offering, which gives guests a further insight into the ways of the Bushmen.  These tours include a walk with a Bushman, learning about hunting, snaring, tracking, lighting fire and collecting bush food; or learning more about life in their village as you see how they make rope and jewellry, and understand the meanings behind their local dances and songs.

The main lodge has a high thatched roof restaurant and lounge, which have amazing panoramic views. The swimming pool is an oasis surrounded by tall palms and scenic vistas of magnificent rocky outcrops and bush savannah. There is also a floodlit waterhole.

Towering boulders form the backdrop to the 20 mountain facing chalets. Each tastefully furnished room has twin beds and air conditioning.  There are also Family Rooms with either an additional single bed or a double bunk bed.
