SESRIEM CAMPSITE ǀ Accommodation in Sossusvlei, Namibia

The Sesriem Campsite immerses you in the serenity of the Namib Desert which comes alive with the distant calls of wildlife beneath the glimmering canvas of the desert night sky. 

Conveniently located just inside the Sossusvlei park gate, the campsite is a short distance from the commanding Sesriem Canyon and right next to the entrance gate into the Sesriem desert area.


DAY 1: SWAKOPMUND - WALVIS BAY - SOLITAIRE - SESRIEM (approximately 350 kilometres)

We collect you at your accommodation in Swakopmund and proceed to the charming town of Walvis Bay, located 40 kms outside of Swakopmund. Enjoy a short stop at the marine lagoon located south of the town which hosts gorgeous flocks of flamingos and a myriad of other marine birdlife. 

We also take the opportunity to make any last-minute purchases before commencing with the second leg of our journey which takes us through the vast stretch of Namib gravel plains before the terrain suddenly transitions into scenic mountain desert.

Here we travel through the breath-taking Kuiseb and Gaub mountain passes, crossing low riverbeds before taking the steep road to the gorgeous mountaintop which offers sweeping views of the world below.

As we cross the mountains, we begin to descend into the singular dune fields which offer your first taste of the beauty yet to come. Passing through grass savannah interspersed with farmland, the terrain suddenly opens onto the great red undulating Namib Desert from which it is only a short distance to the quaint little town of Solitaire.

We make a brief refreshing stop in Solitaire (famous for its apple pie) and arrive at our camp at Sesriem in the late afternoon. Enjoy a heart-warming dinner at the campfire.

Includes: Lunch and dinner


We make a pre-dawn start as the sun begins to warm the desert. We pass through Sesriem and proceed to the middle of the dune field. Enjoy a 5-kilometre walk through the rich canvas of dunes. 

Once a flourishing oasis, Dead Vlei has been transformed into a remarkable scape of 900-year old, charcoal-dark acacias which make startling silhouettes against the blushing dunes. Dead Vlei was formed when an old river that fed the oasis changed its course. 

After lunch, we take a short trip in the cool of the afternoon to the Sesriem Canyon which consists of beautiful rock passages carved over time by the meandering Tsauchab River. Return to camp for another starlit dinner.
