Day 1: Halali, Etosha National Park
Your day begins with a pre-departure talk at the Chameleon Backpackers Lodge in Windhoek. After, you’ll head off on your journey taking a small break at Otjiwarongo to enjoy a light packed lunch. You’ll then head into the iconic Etosha National Park via the Andersson Gate, one of the most famous areas of the park due to its waterhole and seemingly ever-present animals. Your afternoon will be spent on an enjoyable game drive through the park, visiting waterholes to observe the park’s famous residents such as leopards, rhinos, elephants and lions. You’ll arrive at the lodge before sunset with time to settle into your room, before heading to a floodlit waterhole while dinner is prepared for you over an open fire.
