DAY 01 - Into the Desert

You will be collected at your Windhoek accommodation between 08:00 & 08:30

We travel out over the Kupferberg Mountains and along scenic roads on our way south-west to the desert.  We also pass over part of the Naukluft Mountains, which are of particular interest for the ancient geological history of this part of the country. Heading down from Namibia’s central plateau by way of the beautiful Remhoogte Pass, we reach open plains and the tiny settlement of Solitaire.

We cross some open grass savannah and farmlands before the terrain gives way to the immense red sand dune desert of the Namib.  We aim to arrive at our camp during the late afternoon and watch the colours glow and change

Solitaire - Small desert town

DAY 02 - Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon

A pre-dawn start is essential this morning as we want to catch the soft light of the sunrise on the desert. After passing through Sesriem, the gateway to the dunes, we head into the heart of the dune field, reaching Sossusvlei on foot, trekking the last 5 km through the dunes.  Landscape photo opportunities abound in the cool of the morning, with dawn’s soft light first illuminating the dunes from crest down the back slope, then blazing orange everywhere, creating a powerful contrasting vista across the whole desert.  Ancient mineral pans, stunted camel thorn trees and the chance of seeing a gemsbok or ostrich makes it essential to remember your camera!

We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting dune 45. As the day wears on we return to Sesriem for lunch, escaping the heat of the afternoon.  As the day cools off in the late afternoon we will take a short excursion to the Sesriem Canyon.

Dead Vlei

Day 03 - Back to Windhoek

After breakfast we begin our journey back to Windhoek following a different route, travelling via Bullsport, Klein Aub to Rehoboth and back to Windhoek.

We are due back in Windhoek late afternoon / early evening and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return.
