Discover the Impressive Sand Dunes in Sossusviei

Today you'll drive into the desert, taking full advantage of your 4x4 vehicle. 



Head to the Sesriem region, where you can visit the famous Sossusvlei, one of Namibia’s most spectacular and best-known attractions. It features some of the highest sand dunes in the world and is a perfect location for photographs. Don't miss the star dune, Dune 45, so-called because it lies at the 45th kilometer of the road. Go ahead and climb up the dune and admire the view from the top.



How incredible would it feel to go hot-air ballooning over the desert? Find out by adding this optional activity!

Take a Catamaran Cruise or Go on a Living Desert Tour

Head to the historical German city of Swakopmund today. Once you've reached it, check into your guesthouse and then get ready for an adventure!



You have the option to take a catamaran cruise and explore the coast, or go on a living desert tour. If you think the desert is a barren landscape, you'll be proved wrong as your guide helps you discover the amazing animals that have adapted to life in this harsh atmosphere.



You might see Dancing White Lady Spiders, the Namib Dune Gecko, a legless Lizard (Fitsimmon's Burrowing Skink), Sand Diving Lizards, Sidewinder Snakes, Desert Chameleons, and many more fascinating creatures. 



Otherwise, get an aerial view of the landscape by booking a scenic flight for today's activity.
