Pick up from your accommodation in SWAKOPMUND this morning is from 8am where you will meet your guide & group.

We then drive through the Namib Desert via the Kuiseb Pass and Solitaire, arriving at our camp late afternoon and we can set up our tents and enjoy the sunset. Pool and bar available. Dinner prepared by our guide and an early night is recommended.

Day 2: Sesriem, Namib Desert

A pre-dawn departure from camp this morning means that we can enjoy the dunes at first light whilst the temperatures are still cool. We drive down an ancient river bed surrounded by towering dunes, making our first stop at the famous Dune 45, where we can climb to the top and enjoy the sunrise. On descent, enjoy some breakfast, before continuing on to the Sossusvlei area to appreciate the beauty of this place in early morning light and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the region. We explore this unique area on foot before heading 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 before taking the 4x4 shuttle back to our vehicle. We return to Sesriem for lunch and a swim and late afternoon we visit the nearby Sesriem Canyon. Overnight camping, with dinner prepared by our guide.
