Namibia is a sizable nation, even by African standards, twice the size of California and four times the size of the UK, but it only has 2 million people. This results in one of the lowest population densities ever. Additionally, it is a “ageless land,” as evidenced by the rock art left behind by stone-age artists and geological wonders like the petrified forest, where fossilized tree trunks have been preserved for more than 280 million years. When combined with the space and silence, these elements contribute to a sense of antiquity, solitude, and wilderness experience.

Itinary in details

We’ll leave Windhoek at 8:30 a.m. and travel through Okahandja to the lagoon in Walvis Bay, where you’ll enjoy a light lunch. You can see a variety of wetland bird species at this RAMSAR-protected site for birds, including the greater and lesser flamingo. You will have time to experience the German colonial influences of the premier beach resort in Namibia once you arrive in Swakopmund in the middle of the afternoon. You will also meet other guests who are joining the Sossusvlei adventure after their Etosha Safari.

We begin our day with breakfast and some free time to partake in optional adventure pursuits in Swakopmund, Namibia’s adventure capital. An excursion into the coastal dune fields combining sand boarding and quad biking are one of the things to do in Swakopmund. We travel through the Namib Desert via the Kuiseb Pass to get to our lodge close to Sesriem. On your way, you’ll be given a light lunch. We arrive at our safari camp close to Sesriem in the late afternoon, and we have some time to unwind and take in the beautiful surroundings. We take a quick stroll to the Naukluft mountain range after settling in so that we can witness a breathtaking African sunset over the Namib Desert. Dinner will be made at camp.

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

We depart from camp this morning at dawn and arrive at the Namib Naukluft Park gate as the sun is rising. We travel to the parking area along an antiquated riverbed that is surrounded by the tall Namib Desert dunes. We’ll take a shuttle from here to the Sossusvlei Dunes region to enjoy the stunning orange-red sand dunes in the warm early morning light. Namibia’s Sossusvlei Dunes are some of the tallest in the world, and as we explore this arid area, we get a sense of the area’s seclusion and quiet tranquility. We hike through the unique Sossusvlei area before heading into the desolate Dead Vlei. This vast area of cracked bleached flat clay stands in stark contrast to the enormous, vividly colored dunes in the background. It is also dotted with skeletal thorn trees. We’ll stop at the renowned Dune en route back to our overnight lodge lodging. Depending on your preferences, we either climb the famous sand dune or tour the region nearby the base. As we make our way back to the safari lodge, we arrive in the late afternoon just in time to witness a breathtaking sunset over the desert.

Meal plan: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

On the fourth day of our Namibia safari excursion, we have a leisurely breakfast before traveling to a guest farm in Solitaire. At the Na’ankuse Namib Conservation Center, a biologist will accompany us to track wild cheetahs. We then travel through Bullsport and Rehoboth to reach Windhoek. Your scenic safari to Swakopmund and Namibia’s Sossusvlei Dunes comes to an end when you arrive in Windhoek in the middle of the afternoon. You will be dropped off at your post-tour lodging, the bus terminal, or the international airport.
