Safari Overview

Itinerary

Day 1: SOSSUSVLEI LODGE, SESRIEM

You will be collected at your Windhoek accommodation between 08:00 & 08:30. We travel out over the Eros 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 Solitaire. We aim to arrive at our loge in the Sesriem area during the late afternoon and watch the colors glow and change on distant mountains to the east. This evening we enjoy the dinner in the restaurant and an early night is recommended. Overnight in twin share rooms with en-suite bathroom. (LD)

Day 2: SOSSUSVLEI LODGE, SESRIEM

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. Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib. If you’re not keen for the strenuous hike to the top of Big Daddy, Dune 45 is a more forgiving alternative, standing at only 80 metres and featuring a much gentler gradient. Sesriem Canyon, a deep chasm carved through the rocks by water, is a striking natural feature of the area that is best explored on foot. Stony walls rise up sharply on both sides of the canyon, while birds roost in its crags and lizards dart along the ledges. The canyon’s name was coined when early settlers used it as a water source, using six lengths of leather (sesriem – six thongs) tied together to lower buckets into the water at the base of canyon. Overnight in twin share rooms with en-suite bathroom. (BLD)

Day 3: WINDHOEK

After breakfast we begin our journey back to Windhoek following a different route, ascending the massive Gamsberg Pass in the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range on our way back to civilization. We are due back in Windhoek late afternoon / early evening and you will be dropped off at your accommodation on our return. (BL)
