ITINERARYDETAILED Itinerary (offsite)
Day 1: Windhoek to Sossusvlei
(Sesriem Campsite or similar) (400km)
Collection time is between 08:00 and 08:30 from anywhere in Windhoek. Windhoek is surrounded by mountains and we pass first over the Eros Mountains and then the Khomas Hochland Range. As we travel through this splendid landscape, we drop down from the central Namibian plateau to grassy desert savannah. We stop at Solitaire for petrol and perhaps afternoon tea, before we continue to our campsite. We aim to arrive during the late afternoon.
Our campsite is shaded by ancient camelthorn trees. A swimming pool offers a place to relax and cool off and there is a bar serving cold drinks.
After setting up camp we will go on a short excursion to the nearby Elim Dune to enjoy the sunset and watch the colors glow and change on the mountains before going back for dinner.
Activity: Elim Dune Excursion
Included: Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activity
Day 2: Sossusvlei
(Sesriem Campsite or similar)
We make an early start so as to catch the soft light of sunrise over the desert. After passing through Sesriem we continue towards Sossusvlei with sand dunes rising along both sides of the road. This iconic landscape is made up of white plains and red dunes which tower majestically against a deep blue sky and are among the highest in the world. We will stop at the famous Dune 45, a beautiful star dune which reaches over 170 metres in height. Those who feel fit enough to climb the dune will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the surrounding Namibian desert.
After breakfast we will take a desert walk in the cool of the morning, with the chance of seeing gemsbok, springbok, black-backed jackal and ostrich. We will also visit the picturesque Dead Vlei. This white clay pan lies between towering orange dunes and is dotted with the skeletal remains of hundreds of dead camelthorn trees, making it a striking vista and photographer's dream. We will return to our camp for lunch
As the day begins to cool, we will enjoy a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon.
Activities: Sossusvlei, Dune 45, Dead Vlei, Sesriem Canyon

After an early start we travel back to civilisation along scenic roads through the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range. We will have lunch along the road beneath a tree. We will arrive back in the city in the afternoon and you will be dropped off at your accommodation.
