A visit to one of the oldest desert in the world – the mighty Namib Desert. This desert tour takes you to one of the scenic highlights of the Namib - Sossusvlei. This clay pan, which occasionally fills with water, is enclosed by giant, red-coloured sand dunes, some of which reach a height of 300 metres. One of the most spectacular sights in Namibia, this sea of dunes offers wonderful photographic opportunities.

Day 1: Windhoek to Sesriem
(Sesriem camping or similar) (400km)
Collection time is between 08:00 and 08:30 from anywhere within Windhoek. Windhoek is surrounded by mountains and we pass first over the Eros Mountains and then over the Khomas Hochland Range. As we come through the mountains we drop down from the central plateau to grassy desert savannah. We stop at Solitaire for petrol and perhaps also afternoon tea. We aim to arrive at our campsite during the late afternoon. We will go on a short excursion to the nearby sand dunes to enjoy the sunset over the dunes and watch the colors glow and change on the mountains before going back for dinner.
Day 2: Sesriem and Sossusvlei
(Sesriem camping or similar)
Early start to catch the soft light of sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem we continue towards Sossusvlei with sand dunes rising up along both sides of the road. We will stop at the famous Dune 45.
Those who feel fit may climb the dune and get a breathtaking view of the surrounding desert and dunes. After breakfast we will take a desert walk in the cool of the morning, with the opportunity to see gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches.
As the day cools down we will go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon.
Day 3: Sesriem to Windhoek
Early start and back to civilisation on scenic roads through the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range.
We will arrive back in the city in the afternoon and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.
