Enjoy a nature drive on a private farm bordering the Namib Dune Belt. View magnificent sand dunes, which are reputed to be the highest in the world.
Day 1: Windhoek (or Swakopmund) (D)
Depart early this afternoon, travelling via the scenic Spreetshoogte Pass, or Kuiseb Canyon, and Solitaire. Arrive at our luxury lodge bordering the Namib Desert, and check in. In the Nama language, Namib means vast, and this is an understatement. This park is the largest conservation area in Namibia and one of the largest in the world, at almost 50 000 km. The parched Namib Desert has endless orange dunes blown into razor sharp ridges by the sand-shifting wind. Accommodation: Namib Naukluft Lodge or similar.
Day 2: Namib Desert (BLD)
Depart early this morning to Sossusvlei. Climb the world's highest sand dunes. The best time to view Sossusvlei is at sunrise, the colours are strong and constantly changing, allowing for wonderful photographic opportunities. The midday heat is intense and best spent in the shade. The climb to the top of one of the dunes can be grueling under the heat of the sun and with the ever-shifting sand under the feet, but is worth it for the magnificent views. Visit rugged Sesriem Canyon, returning to the lodge for lunch. Afternoon guided nature / sunset drive. Accommodation: Namib Naukluft Lodge or similar.
Day 3: Namib Desert / Windhoek (B)
After breakfast, return via Remhoogte Pass, or Kuiseb Canyon, to Windhoek or Swakopmund, arriving at midday. Passengers may be dropped off at any central hotel or guesthouse.
