Time to relax and explore the camp.

Ddinner and overnight in dune chalet.

Day 3: Sossusvlei, Sesriem, Desert Camp

Desert Camp is situated just 5 km from the entrance gate to Sossusvlei and Sesriem Canyon in the Namib Nauklauft Park. So there is much to see and do in this area.

After breakfast we explore this dramatic landscape. We drive into Sossusvlei area to explore this ancient desert. If you are lucky and Namibia received good rains you may find water in Sossusvlei and witness a lake and oasis in the desert.  See the beautiful yellow carpet of flowers over the land. Grasses appear as from nowhere flowering to provide a much needed source of food to the animals in the area.

Sossusvlei-Namibia

We climb a dune adjacent to Sossusvlei and from here continue to Dead Vlei. Regular stops are made on the spectacular ±60 kilometre drive through the dune corridor down to the Vlei to gain information or take in the vistas. At Dune 45, we make a stop to view the the world's most photographed dune. Further along, a gradual 2,6 kilometer round-trip guided walk up to Dead Vlei is a must for the healthy visitors. The more energetic have the opportunity to climb to the upper ridge of Big Daddy Dune, one of the highest dunes in this area!

In the heart of this vlei stands a collection of skeletal camel thorn trees, a past reminder of days gone by when water flooded the region, set on the white pan with the backdrop of orange sand dunes and blue sky this is a stunning destination.

Next we explore Sesriem Canyon.

Sesriem Canyon

This is deep chasm carved through the rocks by water, is a striking natural feature of the area that is best explored on foot. Stony walls rise up sharply on both sides of the canyon, while birds roost in its crags and lizards dart along the ledges. The canyon’s name was coined when early settlers used it as a water source, using six lengths of leather (‘ses riem – six thongs) tied together to lower buckets into the water at the base of canyon.)

Later we return to camp for dinner.

Overnight in chalet.

Day 4: Swakopmund

We depart after breakfast for our 5 hour drive to Swakopmund.  The route takes us across the Gaub and Kuiseb passes towards Walvis Bay. We  stop here and take a look at the lagoon, a RAMSAR protected wetland site, home to many different aquatic birds such as flamingo, pelicans, cormorant, avocets, the endemic Damara tern and many more.

We continue along the Skeleton Coast road to Swakopmund.

Skeleton coast road Namibia

After check-in at hotel you can partake in an optional activity  such as an afternoon scenic flight over the dunes of Sossusvlei, to the coast to see shipwrecks, old diamond mines, dunes falling into the ocean as well as seal colonies, flamingos etc. This flight really gives a different perspective of the area you have already seen from land.

Alternatively, enjoy quad biking, or tandem sky diving. Your accommodation for the night is in twin share room with en-suite bathroom, close to the centre of town.

There are many restaurants and dinner options to explore (own account)

Overnight at hotel.

Swakopmund Namibia

Day 5: Swakopmund

After breakfast you can partake in optional activities.

Set along Namibia's spectacularly scenic coast, the seaside town of Swakopmund is known for its wide-open avenues, colonial architecture, and its surrounding otherworldly desert terrain. Founded in 1892 as the main harbour for German South-West Africa, Swakopmund is often described as being more German than Germany. Now a seaside resort town, Swakopmund is the capital of the Skeleton Coast tourism area and has plenty to keep visitors happy. The quirky mix of German and Namibian influences, adventure options, laid-back atmosphere and cool sea breeze make it a very popular Namibian destination. Visitors can look forward to a number of exciting activities including: quad biking, horse riding, paragliding, fishing, sightseeing and fascinating desert tours.

After busy day relax at hotel.

In the evening you can decide on a restaurant for dinner (own account).

Overnight at hotel.

Etosha is one of the best game reserves in Southern Africa and home to many species of game including lion, cheetah, leopard, elephant, hyena, giraffe, and many types of antelope including the endemic black-faced impala.
