Namibia

Day 1 - Namib Desert - (app. 240 - 270km)
Starting our tour, we first pass the Kupferberg Pass or pass Namibia’s harbour town Walvis Bay. Traveling from Windhoek, 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 before continuing on to the NamNau Habitat private nature reserve, which hosts a variety of desert adapted game like springbok, ostrich, earth wolf, bat-eared fox and many more.

Day 2 Namib Desert
After an early morning rise with a snack before leaving we arrive at Sesriem, the Park’s gate at around sunrise. We drive across the Tsauchab dry riverbed, which has found a way through the dunes until it reaches the clay pan – the Sossusvlei. 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 camel thorn 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 lodge 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.
