I was hoping someone with more experience could help revise my upcoming self-drive itinerary. Myself and two friends are planning a self-drive at the end of May.
May 26: land in Windhoek, pick up vehicle
May 27: 3 hour trip to Waterberg, game drive that day if possible, hike/camp
May 28: leave for Etosha, 1 hour trip from Waterberg
May 29-June 1: Etosha
June 1: leave for Damaraland
June 3-4: Swakopmund
June 5-7: Sossusvlei
June 7: drive back to Windhoek
June 8: fly home
1. Do we need to adjust the time we're spending in each spot? Should we skip Waterberg so we can spend another day in Swakopmund?
2. In Damaraland, do you recommend we stay in the Northern or Southern part? I'm torn, and I figured extra input would be nice
3. Did I leave anything off the list? Is there a must-see I skipped? We do plan on doing day trips in Sossusvlei and Swakopmund.
4. Is this itinerary too overzealous for our timeframe?
Any help would be greatly helpful and much appreciated!
