ITINERARYDETAILED Itinerary (offsite)
Day 1: Windhoek to NamibRand Nature Reserve
(400km)(Desert Hills Lodge or similar)
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 the Desert Hills Lodge. We aim to arrive during the early afternoon.
Desert Hills Lodge comprises of individual on-suite luxury huts, inspired by the San people's grass huts of old. Guests can relax in the bar, refresh themselves at the pool or enjoy their meals in the restaurant overlooking magnificent surroundings.
Included: Lunch, Dinner
Day 2: NamibRand Nature Reserve
(Desert Hills Lodge 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 gemsboks, springboks, black-backed jackals and ostriches. 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 hundreads of dead camelthorn trees, making it a striking vista and photographer's dream.
As the day cools down we will enjoy a short excursion to Sesriem Canyon before heading back.
