Itinerary

Day 1Windhoek – Namib Desert

You will be met at your establishment in the capital just before 14h00 (during Namibian wintertime – 13h00). Depart from Windhoek and we’ll first pass the Kupferberg Pass. We drive along cattle farm land and see a few farmhouses along the way. The landscape is hilly and we can enjoy some nice views over fertile valleys. As we continue, the vegetation changes and the farmland is used for sheep and goat farming. We take the turn via the scenic and steep Spreetshoogte Pass. Enjoy an undisturbed view on top of one of the steepest passes in Namibia! We will stop at the small settlement Solitaire and continue to the beautifully set Namib Naukluft Lodge & Soft Adventure Camp. Both establishments are located on the private nature reserve: NamNau Habitat, which hosts a variety of desert adapted game like springbok, ostrich, earth wolf, bat-eared fox and many more.
Standard Version: Overnight with dinner, bed and breakfast at the Soft Adventure Camp.
Superior Version: Overnight on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis at Namib Naukluft Lodge.

Day 2Namib Desert

An early morning rise with a snack before leaving enables you to arrive at Sesriem, the Park’s gate at around sunrise. The route leads along and also across the Tsauchab dry riverbed, which has found a way through the dunes until it reaches the claypan – the Sossusvlei. After a good rainy season – about every 7 to 10 years – the Tsauchab River runs in full flood and fills the Vlei with water. For months it remains here and offers sensational scenery with a prolific birdlife.
The early morning sun offers spectacular pastel colours in the star-shaped dunes. This is the highlight for the keen photographer. Your first stop will be at Dune 45 before we continue to the Sossusvlei. Climb one of the dunes – there are plenty – and you might be overwhelmed by the sight of the dynamic and living desert!
Breakfast will be served in form of a picnic under one of the shady camelthorn trees, before you continue to the base of the ‘Dead Vlei’. It is quite a walk over patches of dunes that are crossing your way. When you arrive you will be paid off for your efforts – the scenery is awesome!
We will visit the Sesriem Canyon, a 30 metre deep rift, before we return to our base Namib Naukluft Lodge and the Soft Adventure Camp for a late lunch.
During the late afternoon a sundowner-drive to the natural marble mountains on this 25,000 ha private nature reserve is included.
Standard Version: Overnight with full board at the Soft Adventure Camp.
Superior Version: Overnight with full board at Namib Naukluft Lodge.

Day 3Namib Desert – Swakopmund.

09:00 Departure (during Namibia’s wintertime – departure from the lodge / camp at 08:00) and return to Swakopmund via Gaub & Kuiseb Pass. You will pass Namibia’s largest nature reserve, the Namib Naukluft Park. We pass the Vogelfederberg and shall drive through Namibia’s harbor town Walvis Bay, before we arrive in Swakopmund at around 12:30.

In the afternoon, the following optional excursions are very popular: An excursion to the highlights in the desert: The ‘Moonlandscape’, the Swakop river valley and the ancient and endemic plant: Welwitschia Mirabilis.
