I am looking for information on the best way to book a premier or regular waterhole chalet at Okaukuejo for 3 adults. We will be visiting Etosha the 26th-28th. I have made a few different inquiries through what I think is the Etosha website (nwr.com.na) but I cannot get their website to work. Very frustrating. I have also read that they are known for sometimes not honoring reservations upon arrival that were confirmed online. Will 3 adults fit in a waterhole chalet?
We are coming to Namibia for 8 days, the 20th-28th. Our plan is:
1 night in Windhoek (staying at the Hilton)
2 nights in Sossusvlei (Namib Dune Star Camp, Namib Desert Lodge)
2 nights in Swakopmund (we were going to do 1 night in Walvis Bay, 1 night in Swap, but I read that Walvis is not as nice....would you agree?)
We were going to do 1 night near Torra Bay, but I also read that it is barren. I was hoping to see the shipwrecks and skeletons, but is that further north? I can't seem to pinpoint where the shipwrecks are located. The other option is Damaraland. If we are in Cape Cross, would you recommend taking C34 up to Torra Bay and then inland to Damaraland? Or from Cape Cross, should we go south back to C35 and across?
Finally, we then have 2 nights in Etosha before heading back to Windhoek and Cape Town.
Does that sound like a good itinerary for 8 nights? Thank you for any information.
