A visit to one of the oldest desert in the world – the mighty Namib. Our Namib Desert Tours take you to one of the most 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 heights of 300 metres. One of the most spectacular sights in Namibia, this sea of dunes offers wonderful photographic opportunities. You will visit Elim Dune, Dune 45, Dead Vlei, Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon.

ITINERARYDETAILED Itinerary (offsite)
Day 1: Windhoek to Sossusvlei
(Sesriem Campsite 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 Sesriem during the late afternoon. After setting up camp 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.
Activity: Elim Dune Excursion
Included: Lunch, Dinner, Park Fees and Activity
Day 2: Sossusvlei
(Sesriem Campsite or similar)
This morning we start off early 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 a chance of seeing gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches. You will visit the Deadvlei, Sossusvlei and the surrounding dunes, then return to the camp for lunch. As the day cools down we will go on a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon.
