Marvel At The Dunes Of The Namib

Today you will depart into the southwestern part of Namibia, into the Dune Wonderland landscapes.



One of the oldest deserts in the world and possibly even the very oldest, the Namib was already arid at least 80 million years ago.



In the South, it extends into South Africa across the Orange River, while in the north it crosses the Kunene into Angola. The greater part of the Namib lies inside Namibia, where it occupies some 1500km of Atlantic coastline.



In width, it generally varies between 80 and 140 km, but in places it reaches inland for as much as 200 km.



The afternoon is yours to spend as you wish.

Sossusvlei  

Be Amazed By The Sesriem Canyon

Make an early departure to the Sossusvlei and climb one of the highest sand dunes in the world. Sossusvlei is a dune wonderland, with towering dunes up to 300m high surrounding a huge, dried-up pan.



The dunes extend as far as the eye can see and their rich tints vary from pale apricot to vivid reds and oranges.



During a good rainy season, the Tsauchab River flows into the pan, which creates a haven for water birds. 



This can be followed by a visit to the Sesriem Canyon. At the entrance to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1km in length.



At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down for 30m to 40m, are deep pools of water that become replenished after good rains. 



Return to your lodge and spend the afternoon at leisure.

The attractions are the lagoon with its prolific bird life, altogether some 80 000 wading birds, including flamingos and rare white pelicans can be seen.



Arrive in Swakopmund in the late afternoon and check in.



Swakopmund is much loved by Namibians as a welcome respite from the inland heat. It is also popular amongst visitors because of its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere. Founded in 1892 during the period of German colonial rule, it served as the territory’s main harbor for many years.

Beyond Usakos is the Trekkopje Battlefield site, on which one of the most important battles was fought during the 1915 campaign involving South Africa and German forces took place. Directly north of Windhoek lies Okahandja, a town of great significance to the Herero because it was the seat of Chief Samuel Maharero.
