On this extremely reasonably priced camping group excursion, see the huge and distinctive Namib Desert and stay in the national park in Sesriem. A once-in-a-lifetime adventure and photographer’s paradise, observe the stunning sunrise atop Dune 45 and tour the interesting Deadvlei, Sossusvlei, and Sesriem Canyon. Your tent will be located immediately outside Namib Naukluft National Park’s front gate. The desert is home to certain fauna, including desert oryx.
At 8:30 a.m., you’ll meet your safari guide, and once everyone is aboard, you’ll travel on your safari experience to the Namib Desert. Today’s route takes you south via Rehoboth, then southwest across the picturesque Khomas Hoch land highlands to the Great Escarpment. You’ll stop here to stretch your legs and take in the breathtaking views from the summit of the Spreetshoogte Pass. As you descend the Pass and look down over the vast Namib Desert plains below you, you can understand how the names Namib and Namibia, which both mean “great plain,” came to be. You get your first glimpses of the apricot-colored dunes in the distance as you make your final leg of the drive from Solitaire to Sesriem via breathtaking vistas. The camp is located at the Namib Naukluft National Park’s entrance. When you get to camp, you may settle in to your cozy dome tent and spend the remainder of the afternoon relaxing by the camp pool or going for a walk if that appeals to you.
Get up early in the morning with a fast cup of tea or coffee and a light food before the sun comes up. Then go for the trip into the Namib Naukluft National Park, which is home to the apricot-colored sand dunes, Dune 45, Deadvlei, and Sossusvlei. The park is one of the largest national parks in Africa and protects 50,000 sq. km of pure desert, one of the oldest on Earth. The first destination is Dune 45.
You can ascend to the summit before descending for a hot beverage and breakfast pack. The next stop is Sossusvlei. You spend the morning’s cooler hours touring Deadvlei and Sossusvlei and learning about the surprisingly diverse array of flora and fauna. After that, choose a tree in the midst of the dunes for shade and enjoy a picnic lunch. Drive back to Sesriem down the river valley in your car, stopping along the way to admire Sesriem Canyon. It is ideal to descend into the cold depths of the little canyon, which is 1.5 km long and 30 m deep at its deepest point. Later, go back to the Sesriem camp.
Take advantage of the opportunity to sleep in this morning before a hearty meal is provided at 8:00 am. Then, at 8:30 am, you will set off on your return trip to Windhoek. You will reach The Wild Cherry Adventures’ base sometime in the early afternoon, around 2:00 pm. We would be happy to make accommodations for you if you need them for this evening.
