Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia.

We invite you to experience tranquility, elegance and style at the newly built Elegant Guesthouse,
situated close to Windhoek’s Central Business District. The 6 luxurious double rooms offer guests

Day 2
After a sumptuous breakfast, you will be transferred to the Avis offices to collect your rental
vehicle.
Frans Indongo Lodge is situated in the proximity of Waterberg Plateau, 44km from Otjiwarongo.
This is the ideal stopover for the weary traveller between Etosha and Windhoek.
The 170 km² game farm boasts an abundance of game, including white and black rhino, black
wildebeest and hartebeest. For active holidaymakers there are laid out trails, which meander
through the bush savannah and lead onto a hill with a magnificent look-out point.

The lodge complex is modelled on traditional Ovambo homesteads: palisades of tall pointed
stakes embrace the lodge and convey a feeling of the warmth and security of home right in the
middle of the African bush. Inside the complex a palisade separates the restaurant and swimming
pool area from the guest chalets and thereby provides more privacy.
A variety of beautiful
building materials like natural stone, wood and reed were used for the houses. Items of daily use
in Ovambo - earthen pots, voluminous storage baskets or original wooden figures - serve as
decoration to emphasize the African theme, and lend a very special charm to the lodge.

The luxurious character of the Frans Indongo Lodge is complemented by the interior decoration
and colour scheme of the six double rooms and the six generously proportioned chalets. All the
rooms have their own bathroom, air-conditioner, fridge, hairdryer, telephone, TV and an electric
kettle for tea and coffee.

The lush green garden attracts the Shaft-tailed Whydah, the strikingly coloured Crimson-breasted
Shrike, the Pied Barbet and many other birds. At sun set retreat to the large wooden veranda at
the bar or the little observation tower. Both are fabulous places for savouring the enchanting hour
of dusk - and keeping an eye on the water hole which is illuminated at night. The rare nyala, black
springbok and white blesbok, sable and roan antelope regularly put in an appearance.
Lunch and all activities offered by the lodge are on own account

Day 3 & 4
After breakfast depart to the Eastern entrance of the famous Etosha National Park.
At Onguma Bush Camp accommodation consists of 6 en-suite air-conditioned luxury bungalows,
and 1 family room. Bush Camp is ideal for clients who would like to have a base from which they
can explore Etosha National Park. Dinner is served in the open lapa area where you will be
treated to an excellent combination of European and traditional African cuisine sitting around an
open fire under the Namibian sky.

The Onguma Reserve covers an area of 20 000ha and
incorporates ecological substrata such as savannah, bushveld, omuramba and dry pan. Age-old
and well-worn migration routes, once used by elephant and buffalo wander through Onguma’s
three dry riverbeds.
Onguma Reserve boasts over thirty different animal species. Plains game roam freely and
predators although not easy to spot are nevertheless common residents of the area. Onguma
also became part of an innovative custodianship project relating to the black rhino. Six black rhino
were darted in Etosha National Park and shipped to the reserve. Here they are protected and
monitored.

The joyful news is that the first calf was born on Onguma in October 2002. More than
300 bird species can be viewed at Onguma. The reserve boasts the biggest breeding colony of
white-backed vultures in Namibia. During the summer months Onguma becomes a bird-watchers
paradise with thousands of species migrating to wetlands created by the seasonal rains and
ephemeral river systems. This part of Namibia has been identified as one of the key bird watching
sites in Southern Africa.

including black rhino, elephant, giraffe and lion, come to drink. The resort has a newly built
restaurant, bar and shop complex. Okaukeujo is the main administrative centre of the park, and

are conducted.

Drive to the heart of Damaraland.
Between the Ugab and Huab Rivers in Southern Damaraland lies a vast and unspoiled
wilderness. This area boasts magnificent desert scenery, fascinating geological formations,
archaeological sites and a unique variety of desert fauna and flora.

It's also the Southernmost
roaming ground for the rare black rhino and desert elephant.
Mowani Mountain Camp is characterised by its thatched dome-shaped structures which echo the
shape of the granite boulders amongst which they are built. Much care has been taken with the
design of the public areas, creating the impression of a (very upmarket) African Village, with
dome-like thatched structures that blend in with the imposing boulders which are scattered
around the outcrops.
Mowani is taken from the word M'Wane, meaning "Place of God", and it is here, that you will find
the true meaning of peace and tranquility. Mowani Mountain Camp nestles amongst the boulders
of this beautiful area on a high spot commanding distant views over the ancient landscape.

The luxury tented accommodation is built unobtrusively, so as to ensure minimum impact on the
natural environment. The stilt-like supports of the tents ensure that very little excavation was
needed in order to create this special oasis.The main complex at Mowani consists of a reception,
bar, dining room and a lounge which overlooks the waterhole. Accommodation is in 12 luxury
East-African-style en-suite safari tents which are spread around the mountain crest. The tents are
built on raised wooden platforms, each with its own private veranda and great views of the Aba-
Huab Valley.
