Namibia Dunes and Desert Safari
Travel to the heart of an age-old desert, where the dunes are taller and the stars are brighter than you have ever imagined.
Among these vast ancient vistas a thousand tiny miracles play out each day, as fascinating desert animals and plants make dozens of unique adaptations that allow them to thrive in this arid environment.
Natural beauty on a grand scale stretches beneath impossibly blue African skies. Stripped down to barest simplicity, the desert playground of Sossusvlei is the ideal place to reawaken your soul.
3 Nights Sossusvlei
Nights 1 - 3 Sossusvlei, Namibia
On arrival at Hosea Kutako Int'l Airport in Windhoek, you will be warmly welcomed by an representative, who will assist you with check-in for a light aircraft flight to Sossusvlei.
Set off on a guided walk through the desert, stopping to admire the tiny miracles of nature that make up the unique plants and wildlife of this arid yet beautiful region.
Set out on a quad bike adventure trail through the Namib dunes, gliding across the smooth, silk-like texture of the tawny desert sand.
An incredible half-day adventure will take guests across the awe-inspiring sand dunes of Sossusvlei, largely known as one of the Namib Desert’s most scenic and spine-tingling attractions. A breathless climb to the top of the massive ‘Big Daddy,’ the tallest dune in the Sossusvlei area. End the spectacular day off with a daring run down the vertical slopes and steep sand dunes with the wind enlivening your hair.
Exceptional stargazing, with a highly sophisticated telescope and professional astronomer.
Specially adapted desert wildlife – oryx, springbok, Burchell’s zebra and the endemic Hartmann’s mountain zebra, bat-eared foxes, as well as a variety of insects and lizards.
Enjoy breakfast and perhaps a morning activity before your light aircraft flight back to Windhoek.
