Itinerary

Day 1Windhoek – Namib Desert

Depart at around 09:00 from Windhoek via the scenic and steep Spreetshoogte Pass to the beautifully set Namib Naukluft Lodge. A light lunch will be served. During the afternoon you have time to relax at the swimming pool, enjoy an easy walking trail or join a desert drive (optional – not included). Overnight with full board at Namib Naukluft Lodge.

Day 2Namib Desert.

An early morning rise will be rewarded by the sight of the spectacular dunes at Sossusvlei on your excursion. Make the effort and climb one of the dunes and you may be overwhelmed by the sight of the dynamic and living desert. A picnic breakfast will be served under one of the camelthorn trees at Sossusvlei. Visit the ‘Dead Vlei’ and the Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge for lunch. During the late afternoon a ‘sundowner’- drive to the natural marble mountains on this 25,000 ha private nature reserve is offered.

En route to Swakopmund we will drive through the Kuiseb Canyon and the Namib Desert. We’ll arrive at around lunch-time (lunch included) check into our hotel and have a bit of rest, before we are off to some of the highlights in the region: the Swakop riverbed, the ‘moonlandscape’ and at the Welwitschia Mirabilis, an ancient plant endemic to the Namib Desert. Dinner in Swakopmund is excluded. There are plenty of excellent restaurants – the choice is yours!
