Sossusvlei Desert Adventure

Windhoek 1 night
Namib Desert 2 nights

Day 1 Windhoek: On arrival in Windhoek you will be met and transferred to your hotel. Rest of day at leisure.

Day 2 Windhoek/Namib Desert: Depart from Windhoek early afternoon and travel to the Küpferberg Pass. As the journey continues via the scenic and steep Spreetshoogte Pass enjoy an undisturbed view from the top of one of the steepest passes in Namibia! A brief stop will be made at Solitaire, before continuing to the beautifully set private nature reserve of NamNau Habitat, which hosts a variety of desert adapted game like Springbok, ostrich, earth wolf, bat-eared fox and many more.

Day 3 Namib Desert: Early morning departure for Sossusvlei, a fascinating world of ecology and unearthly geography. Travel along the Tsauchab dry riverbed, which has found a way through the dunes until it reaches the vivid white clay saltpan, called Sossusvlei. After a good rainy season, approximately every 7-10 years, the Tsauchab River runs in full flood and fills the Vlei with water, offering sensational scenery with prolific birdlife. The early morning sun offers spectacular pastel colours in the star-shaped dunes. The first stop will be at Dune 45 before continuing to Sossusvlei and the chance to climb one of the dunes. Enjoy a picnic breakfast and afterwards, walk over patches of dunes until you reach the base of the ‘Dead Vlei’, another pan where water once flowed, but all that remains today are the skeletons of trees. Visit the rugged Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge and this afternoon join a guided nature drive to the ‘marble mountain’ or relax on your veranda.

Day 4 Namib Desert/Windhoek: Travel via the Remhoogte Pass or via the Spreetshoogte Pass depending on weather and road conditions. Arrive Windhoek early afternoon where the tour ends.
