Experience the astonishing contrasts of the Namib. Visit top desert attractions and enjoy sightings of the unique desert-adapted animals that roam the dry valleys and dunes.

Day 1: Namib

You are collected at your hotel in Windhoek in the early afternoon. Drive via the Spreetshoogte Pass and Solitaire to your lodge on the border of the Namib Desert (driver only). This is the oldest desert on earth formed some 5 million years ago, a breath-taking sea of sand and dunes that can reach up to 220 metres high. Due to early morning fog from the coast, this arid place is home to a surprising array of creatures which benefit from the moisture. You arrive at the lodge and enjoy the tranquillity of this remote desert setting.

Day 2: Namib

To take full advantage of the magnificent play of early morning light on the dunes, we leave at 05h00 and arrive at Sesriem gate at sunrise. Your drive takes you through commanding vistas of the Tsauchab River Valley towered over by dunes; then explore Sossusvlei, a clay pan set amid the dunes. This is the perfect spot to climb some of the highest sand dunes in the world. Stop for breakfast before heading off to the dramatic Sesriem Canyon carved out of the local sedimentary rock over aeons by the Tsauchab River. You return for lunch at the lodge and spend the afternoon relaxing and soak up the sweeping views across the open plains. Later join a guided nature sunset drive to the Marble Mountains (drinks for guest’s own account).

Departure Day

You leave the lodge (driver only) after breakfast and make your way via the Kuiseb Pass towards the palm-lined streets of Swakopmund, Namibia's premier seaside town. Alternately, your drive will take you via the Remhoogte Pass if you are headed back to Windhoek. You arrive in Swakopmund or Windhoek in the early afternoon where your tour ends. You may be dropped off at the hotel or guest house of your choice within the city limits. Guests who finish this tour in Swakopmund have the opportunities to see more of Namibia by joining Northern Odyssey or Etosha Safari tours.
