WindhoekDay 01 : ARRIVE Windhoek

Upon your arrival at Hosea Kutako (Windhoek) International Airport you will be met by our representative, and transferred to Namibia’s Capital City, Windhoek.

Windhoek, the country's capital is a bustling metropolis that is unexpectedly neat and orderly - though this is perhaps less surprising when one considers it was a German territory for many years.

Windhoek lies in a pretty valley with buildings very much in the German architectural style.

DAY 02 : WINDHOEK – SOSSUSVLEI

Departing from Windhoek, today’s journey continues over the “Khomas Hochland” highland region in a westerly direction towards the great escarpment. Descend the escarpment via Namibia’s highest mountain pass, Spreetshoogte, to enter the central Namib Region. Late afternoon arrival at Sossusvlei Lodge bordering the Namib Naukluft Park. Overnight

(Breakfast, Picnic Lunch, Dinner )

DAY 03 : SOSSUSVLEI

Conduct an early morning excursion along the path of the ancient Tsauchab River into the Namib Sand Sea including a visit to the famed Sossusvlei, Dune 45 and Deadvlei. Many visitors to Namibia say that no part of the desert is more stunning than Sossusvlei, with its monumentally high dunes, the shadows of their sinuous crests continually changing as the day waxes and wanes. Gigantic star-shaped mountains of sand, the highest estimated at 325 m. The warm tints of the sand, ranging from pale apricot to brick orange and deep red, contrast vividly with the dazzling white surfaces of the deflationary clay pans at some of their bases. An afternoon excursion will be conducted to the Sesriem Canyon, a small yet picturesque canyon carved over millions of years into the Tschaub River. Overnight

( Breakfast, Dinner)

SossusveliDAY 04 : SOSSUSVLEI - SWAKOPMUND

Continue across the “gravel plains” of the Namib Desert on route towards Namibia’s premier coastal resort town, Swakopmund. Excursions on route will be included to the erosional feature of the “Moon Valley” and to Namibia’s ancient plant species, the “Welwitschia mirabilis”. A picnic lunch is included on route.

The lagoon is renowned for its seasonal abundance of both the Greater and Lesser Flamingo species. The remainder of the day will be at leisure to explore Namibia’s premier coastal resort town, Swakopmund. Today this quaint town nestled between desert and ocean is enhanced by lush green lawns, palm trees and carefully tended gardens. There is a good selection of restaurants and coffee shops selling traditional German cakes and pastries, while the coastline and the desert respectively offer many options for adventure or relaxation.

In addition to being of historical interest, Cape Cross has a breeding colony of Cape Fur seals. Leaving the coast continue in an easterly direction crossing the “gravel plains” towards the abandoned mining town of Uis, and Namibia’s highest Mountain Range.
