Pick up this morning at 7h15 for our pre-departure briefing before leaving WINDHOEK. We travel via Okahandja and Usakos to the lagoon at Walvis Bay where we will have a light lunch. Here we will see many species of wetland birds, including the greater and lessor Flamingo. Arriving in Swakopmund mid afternoon we will have time to explore this quaint seaside town on foot and our guide will be happy to recommend a good restaurant for your evening meal (own expense). We will also meet up with the guests coming from Etosha who will join us on our adventure to Sossusvlei. Overnight accommodation on a twin share basis with en-suite facilities.

Day 2: Desert Camp, Namib Desert

This morning after breakfast we can join an optional activity such as the sand boarding or quad biking which takes us into the coastal dune fields. Our safari vehicle will leave Swakopmund at 12h00 and we drive via Kuiseb Pass and Gaub Pass, stopping for a leg stretch at the Tropic of Capricorn, before continuing on to Solitaire and our camp. We arrive at our camp late afternoon and have a chance to relax and enjoy the views before taking a short walk for sunset looking over the Naukluft mountain range. 

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Twin rooms with en-suite bathrooms at Desert Camp

Day 3: Desert Camp, Namib Desert

We depart at dawn from the lodge to arrive at the park gate for sunrise. We drive down an ancient river bed surrounded by towering dunes to the 2x4 parking (around 55kms) and take a 4x4 shuttle into the Sossusvlei area and head into Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge dunes with their ever-changing colours. After our hike we head to Sossusvlei and enjoy a tasty brunch prepared by our guide to give us energy to climb and explore the famed Sossusvlei Dunes. We explore this unique area on foot before catching the 4x4 shuttle back to our vehicle. As we drive back to our accommodation we will stop at the famous Dune 45 and climb this dune if we wish or just wander around the base. We return to Sesriem and visit the nearby Sesriem Canyon,one of the few permanent water sources before arriving back at our lodge late afternoon to watch the sunset over this spectacular desert. 

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Accommodation: Twin rooms with en-suite bathroom at Desert Camp

Day 4: Windhoek

We enjoy a leisurely breakfast before heading to Solitaire. Solitaire has a sanctuary for cheetah that cannot be released back into the wild because of various reasons. We enjoy a 1 hour drive in a 4x4 vehicle with an experienced guide for an educational tour where we can learn about, and photograph these beautiful animals. We return to Windhoek via Bullsport and Rehoboth, arriving mid afternoon where we will be dropped at our accommodation. Should we wish to travel on this afternoon flights before 17h00 are NOT recommended.
