Guided Namibia Tour

5 Day Sossusvlei & Swakopmund Tour

Book the 5 Day Swakopmund & Sossusvlei Tour in Namibia and enjoy this magical journey to Namibia's premier nature reserve where you will spend 2 nights' stay in the Namib Desert with 2 nights at the beautiful coastal town of Swakopmund.

The first part of this exciting Sossusvlei & Swakopmund Tour starts with a stay in the NamNau Habitat, a unique 25 000 ha Private Desert, which stretches from the Namib Desert to the Naukluft mountains, bordering the Namib Naukluft Park on both sides. This private nature reserve is home to a variety of desert-adapted game including springbok, ostrich, earth wolf, bat-eared fox and many more. The Namib Desert also holds the title for the oldest living desert on earth, with flora and fauna perfectly adapted to this harsh environment and home to the highest accessible dunes in the world.

After an eventful two days spent in the desert, you will make your way to Swakopmund via Gaub & Kuiseb Pass. This coastal holiday town with its many colonial buildings and a distinctly German character is known as a paradise for extreme sports. Some of the popular activities include sandboarding, paragliding, dune carting, hot air ballooning, shark fishing, and quad biking. The stretch of this Atlantic coast is also famous for beach angling. For those not looking for death-defying activities will enjoy the various attractions in Swakopmund like the Cape Cross Seal Colony, the National Marine Aquarium, and the Rossmund Desert Golf Course, one of only five all-grass desert golf courses in the world.

5 Day / 4 Nights
Namibia

Day 1: Windhoek – Namib Desert.
You will be met at your establishment in the capital just before 14h00. Depart from Windhoek and we’ll first pass the Kupferberg Pass. We drive along cattle farmland 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.

Day 2: Namib 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 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.

Day 3: Namib Desert – Swakopmund.
08:30 Departure 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 harbour town Walvis Bay, before we arrive in Swakopmund at around 12:30.
