Who Should Go

If you want to make the most of your visit to one of Namibia’s iconic highlights and see the Namib Desert through the eyes of a local, this tour is for you. Your guide is experienced in navigating the sandy 4×4 roads and will share interesting facts and anecdotes with you.

Your guide greets you with a warm smile in the morning and after a short tour briefing, your adventure can begin. You make your way south and as you leave Windhoek behind, beautiful landscapes begin to open up. The journey takes you over the hills of the Khomas Hochland and time permitting, you descend into the Namib-Naukluft region through one of the several spectacular passes. A stop at Solitaire is scheduled and although it is a settlement of only a few buildings, it is always worth a visit. Following a light lunch and perhaps some delicious apple pie (both optional), you proceed along beautiful scenery to your accommodation for the next two evenings, the Elegant Desert Camp. The afternoon at the camp is at your leisure and if you wish, you can join the optional sundowner drive. Dinner is a three-course meal under the stars.

Distance approx. 200 km; driving time approx. 3 hours

Today is an action-packed day and you will want to rise before the sun to make the most of it. Take in the beautiful morning light while sitting on a serene desert dune, away from the main crowds. Here you can enjoy your breakfast picnic and your beautiful surroundings, before you drive deeper towards the Deadvlei and Sossusvlei area. The terrain at the end of regular road requires four-wheel drive, but this is no challenge for your 4×4 vehicle and your experienced guide. Once arrived, you have enough time to explore the curious looking Deadvlei and take many memorable photographs. You then drive towards the Sesriem Canyon, formed by the flow of the Tsauchab River over millions of years. Here you have a further opportunity to get out of the car, walk down into the canyon and explore the now dry waterway. Following all this, you return to your accommodation where you can choose to spend the afternoon relaxing by the pool.

This morning you do not need to get up as early as the day before, so enjoy a leisurely breakfast before starting your journey back to Windhoek.

As you reach Windhoek, you will be brought to either a lodge of your choice or the Windhoek airport for the end of your tour.
