Itinerary

Day 1: Windhoek - Solitaire/Sesriem (300 Kilometres)

Guests are collected in Windhoek. Depart at 14h00 for a scenic drive to your accommodation; both located 35 kilometres south of Solitaire. The journey takes you to the Namib-Naukluft National Park via the spectacular Spreetshoogte Pass; one of Namibia’s steepest and most scenic mountain passes. 

Stopover at a small settlement in Solitaire for refreshments and snacks (your own cost). Continue to the Sossusvlei region, enjoying the tranquil desert ambience as the sun is setting. 

Overnight at Namib Desert Lodge or The Desert Grace. Dinner is served in the lodge restaurant or under the stars around a boma. 

Includes: Dinner  

Day 2: Sossusvlei

After a hearty breakfast, it’s time to explore the wonders of the magical Sossusvlei. This includes climbing Big Daddy which is the highest sand dune in the world. The view from the top is spectacular and worth the effort of the fairly steep climb. 

You’ll also visit the forest of ancient camelthorn trees found in the world-renowned Dead Vlei. They are probably the most photographed features in Sossusvlei. Your journey continues to the rugged Sesriem Canyon, finishing with a glorious sunset drive through the silent desert back to your lodge. 

Overnight in Namib Desert Lodge or The Desert Grace. Dinner is served in the lodge restaurant or under the stars around the boma.
