Sossusvlei Safari

Day 1: Windhoek - Sossusvlei
Guests will be collected from their accommodation in Windhoek at around 08h15, and heading first south-westerly crossing the Namib Central Plateau, then dropping down the Great Escarpment via the Remhoogte Pass.
Open plains emerge from the descent out of the mountains, and from here on in it's only a short distance to the next stop, the tiny settlement of Solitaire (famous for it's apple pie!) A short refreshment stop follows, before continuing on through the impressive desert scenery, open grass savanna and farmlands. It's not long before the immense red sand dune desert of the Namib, come into view. Arrival at the camp is scheduled for the afternoon, perfect timing to marvel as the colours glow and change on the distant mountains to the east. An early night is recommended.
Meals: Lunch & Dinner
Camping: Sesriem Campsite or Agama Camp
Day 2: Sossusvlei
A pre-dawn departure is essential to catch the sunrise on the desert, it's straight into the heart of the dune field, reaching Sossusvlei itself by walking the last 5km through the dunes (4x4 shuttles are available for those who prefer not to walk). As you travel down the valley to Sossusvlei, the huge star dunes on either side dwarf everything else. Ancient mineral pans and stunted camel thorn trees make for perfect photo opportunities. But look closely at the sand! Tiny tracks at the base of the dunes might lead to 1 of 200 species of beetles living in the Namib. Larger tracks might belong to black-backed jackal or gemsbok, or might be the two-toed track left behind by an ostrich!
The morning is spent in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting Dune 45. Many people think the name originates because it is about 45km from Sesriem, (which it is) but it's because of the numbering system devised by conservation staff, and by coincidence it happens to be dune number 45 on the map. There is a lunch stop at Sesriem to escape from the heat of the afternoon, and once the day cools off in the late afternoon, there is a short excursion to the Sesriem Canyon.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Camping: Sesriem Campsite or Agama Camp
Day 3: Windhoek
A more leisurely start to the day. Guests may wish to take a pleasure flight over the dunes, which your guide can help organize. After breakfast the tour leaves the area and heads back north, once again through the wonderful Highlands. The route is slightly different from the outward journey, but just as scenic and spectacular. After an en-route lunch stop, arrival in Windhoek at approximately 16h00. Driving time for the last day is approximately 5hrs. (350kms)
