Rising some 200m above a surrounding sea of African bush and savannah, the Waterberg Plateau Park with its flamboyant brick-red sandstone formations and lush green vegetation, presents an island of vibrant colour. The 40 549 ha park, situated 60km east of Otjiwarongo, was proclaimed in 1972. It was originally created as a sanctuary for rare and endangered species found in the Caprivi, such as roan and sable antelope, tsessebe and cape buffalo. Today the park is home to some 25 game species, over 200 bird species and vegetation which changes dramatically from acacia savannah at the foot of the plateau to lush-green sub-tropical dry woodland with tall trees and grassy plains at the top.

The Etosha National Park, consisting of 22 270 sq km of saline desert, savannah and woodlands, is one of the largest parks in Africa. Its definitive feature is the Etosha Pan, a vast, shallow depression of approximately 5000 sq km. For the greater part of the year, the pan is a bleak expanse of white cracked mud which shimmers with mirages on most days. It is seeing vast herds of game with this eerie "great white place of dry water" as a backdrop which makes the Etosha experience unique. A total of about 114 mammal species are found in the park, including several rare and endangered, such as black rhino and black-faced impala. About 300 bird species occur in the park, of which approximately one third are migratory, including the European bee-eater and several species of waders.

In the late afternoon check-in in at the lodge outside the park.

Twyfelfontein, meaning doubtful fountain, which lies to the west of Khorixas, resembles a large, open-air art gallery. This treasure house of rock engravings left by stone-age artists is regarded as one of the richest collections in Africa.

South of Twyfelfontein is the Burnt Mountain, a panorama of desolation with coloured rocks contrasting vividly against the grey-black surroundings. The Organ Pipes, a mass of basalt slabs in a ravine gouged out by a river, is another geological curiosity in the area.
