Sossusvlei-Namibia

Visit the outdoor playground of Namibia and a magical destination that falls within the largest conservation area in Africa. Breathtaking scenery, abstract natural wonders and the warm-hearted people of Namibia make this a once-in-a-lifetime tour for wanderlust travellers.  

DAY 01

Windhoek - Swakopmund

  • Travel to Swakopmund which is located on the Namib Coast, a windswept stretch of coastline, otherwise known as the Skeleton Coast. The drive takes you via Okahandja, Usakos and the lagoon at Walvis Bay.

  • Marvel at the sight of hundreds of the greater and lesser flamingoes in the Walvis Bay lagoon while enjoying a light lunch.

  • Arrive late afternoon in the quaint seaside town of Swakopmund.

  • Book into your hotel accommodation here and spend the last few hours of the day exploring the historic town on foot. 

  • For a much-needed drink, join the group for sundowners at a restaurant on the jetty overlooking the icy Atlantic Ocean.

  • Enjoy dinner at any one of the excellent restaurants in town (at your own expense). Your Namibian tour guide will recommend the best ones in town.

Includes: picnic lunch

DAY 02

Swakopmund - Sossusvlei

  • After a leisurely breakfast, join the group for one of the many optional activities on offer in Swakopmund. This could be quad biking, sandboarding, a dolphin cruise or a scenic flight along the Skeleton Coast spotting ancient shipwrecks. A special treat is a trip to Walvis Bay to see the world-famous flamingoes in the lagoon, which is a protected RAMSAR birding site.

  • Leave Swakopmund at 12h00 and drive to a desert safari camp near Sesriem.

  • Drive via Kuiseb Pass and Gaub Pass, stopping to stretch your legs and take photos at the Tropic of Capricorn Crossing.

  • Arrive at the overnight desert camp late afternoon, settle into your tented accommodation and enjoy a sunset walk over the Naukluft mountain range before it’s time for dinner. Dinner will be prepared by your guide and served under the stars around the camp firepit.

Please note: optional activities are for your own expense (not included in the tour rate)*

DAY 03

Sossusvlei

  • Wake up early for hot beverages and snacks before departing to explore the major attractions of Sossusvlei.

  • First stop is Dead Vlei, which is renowned for its ghostly bleached, cracked clay landscape and skeletal camel thorn trees. In the background are the famous Namibian Red Dunes which change colour as the sun rises and sets.

  • Enjoy a light picnic lunch and spend the rest of the time exploring the area on foot.

  • Return to your tented camp late afternoon with stops en route at the world-famous Dune 45 or Big Daddy Dune. You can climb it if fit enough or walk around its massive base.

  • Last activity of the day is a visit to Sesriem Canyon. It’s one of only a few permanent water sources in the arid region and the perfect spot of sundowners.

  • Enjoy dinner prepared by your guide and served under the stars around the camp firepit.

Overnight in twin-share safari tents with ensuite bathrooms.
