After a self-drive in Okavango - Chobe - Victoria Falls or Livingstone, my teenage daughter and I will exit via the Caprivi Strip in another 4x4 rental. We'll have about 8 days left and would like to see Etosha, see an authentic Himba village, perhaps in the Opuwo area, and then drive down to spend a couple of nights in Sesriem before flying out of Windhoek. I'm uncertain of whether to drive to Kaokoland via Ondangwa and then to south to Outjo and into Etosha, or to visit Etosha first, then up to Kaokoland and then drive down to Sesriem. Any thoughts on whether 2 nights in the Opuwo area justifies the long drive? Or recommendations of guide or community? The San Bushmen areas are even more difficult to reach, but if anyone has tips that would also be of interest.
Seems like a long drive to reach Sesriem from the north. Is driving at night allowed outside of the "game areas" or is this considered "negligent" even on big highways?
