day
1
Windhoek → Rehoboth → Kalahari

You will be picked up between 07:30 and 08:00 from anywhere within the Windhoek city limits.

We start our journey south on the main highway, travelling through the thin strip of Kalahari Desert that protrudes onto the eastern side of Namibia.

Stopping at small towns along the way including Rehoboth, traditional home of the Baster people and on to Kalkrand where you bid the main road farewell and head off into the Kalahari. Kalahari is a fossil desert, usually greener and less stark, and the dunes are very different from tall Sossusvlei-style dunes.

Late this afternoon we hope onto an open vehicle for a late afternoon sunset drive.

Kalahari → Keetmanshoop → Fish River Canyon

After breakfast, an early morning departure to the town of Mariental and south to Keetmanshoop.

Just outside the town you have the opportunity of visiting the Mesosaurus Fossil Site. We travel via the town of Keetmanshoop for overnight camping on the Fish River area. Here you have the opportunity to see the Quiver tree. Quiver trees are not in fact trees, they are a type of aloe, Aloe Dichotoma, so called because the branches fork dictomously.

Fish River Canyon → Luderitz

After breakfast, early-morning we head to the main view point where we can see how impressive this canyon actually is. This is an ideal opportunity for photos and to spend some time experiencing this amazing sight. Viewing from the top we can see the river sparkling in the sunlight far below us, and can barely imagine how many millennia it took for the forces of erosion to carve such a magnificent vista.

Time to pack up camp and move on to our next destination, the coastal town of Luderitz where its colonial-style buildings cling to the rocks overlooking the bay, on some days a deep iridescent blue, on others grey and stormy, the crisp fresh climate, fishing boats bobbing up and down on the Atlantic horizon, penguins and seals diving beneath the
waves, give the town a curious other-worldly allure. We aim to arrive at our guest house during the late afternoon.

Luderitz & Kolmanskop

Breakfast at the hotel. This is time to join an optional extra excursion, a marine trip. We take a cruise around Luderitz Bay and, weather permitting, to Halifax Island to see the Jackass Penguins. If the weather conditions are suitable we turn off the engines and come back to Luderitz under sail. (The boat cruise is subject to availability and, if undertaken, will be for the clients own risk and expense.)

Then we drive out to Kolmanskop, a desert ghost town about 20 km out of Luderitz.

During the middle of the day there is time to explore Luderitz Town with its traditional German architecture and later we will take a drive out to Diaz Point to see the bird life.

Luderitz → Sesriem

After breakfast, turning north, we once again head deep into the ancient southern Namib, travelling on small gravel roads and passing some tiny rural communities along the way.

Traversing this bleak yet beautiful landscape, the terrain begins to change and we cross some open grass savannah and farmlands before the terrain begins to give way to the immense red sand dune of Namib desert.

We aim to arrive at our camp during the late afternoon and watch the colours glow and change on distant mountains to the east

Sossusvlei Lodge

day
6
Sossusvlei

Today we will visit Dune 45, renowned for its elegant shape, which has earned the distinction of the ‘most photographed dune in the world’. 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.

then, we will go to Dead Vlei. This ancient clay pan was once an oasis, studded with acacias and fed by a river that suddenly changed course, leaving the earth to dry up along with the trees it previously supported. So dry were the climatic conditions that the trees never decomposed, 900 years later they remain as desiccated, blackened sentinels dotting the pan’s cracked surface. Surrounded by the red-pink dunes of the Namibia Desert, they create a surreal spectacle that is a photographer's dream.

Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib. The clear blue skies contrast with the giant red sand dunes to make this one of the natural wonders of Africa and a photographers heaven. Aside from the attractions at Sossusvlei - Dune 45, Hidden Vlei, Big Daddy and Dead Vlei - other attractions in the area include the Sesriem Canyon and Namib-Naukluft National Park, where the mountains of the Namib meet its plains.
