SOSSUSVLEI NAMIB DESERT FLY-IN ADVENTURE

Sossusvlei Namib Desert Fly-in Adventure

Day 1: Kulala Desert Lodge

We need to arrive in Windhoek no later than 14:30 for our flight to the Namib Desert. We enjoy a late afternoon flight that takes us over the Khomas Hochland and the great escarpment to the dune sea of the Namib Desert. On arrival, we are transferred to our lodge, perfectly located, with views of the huge sand dunes that pave the way to Sossusvlei. Lodge in the Namib Desert near Sossusvlei

Day 2: Wolwedans Dune Lodge

We depart before sunrise in our safari vehicle to Sossusvlei. The Namib Dune sea is over 100 km wide. Our drive takes us along the Tsauchab River, which has carved out a perfect path, deep into the dune sea. The dunes along the way reach up to 300 metres in height. The path of the Tsauchab River has been cut off by the moving desert sands and it is here that we are able to explore this beautiful area on foot. Our guide takes us to the famous Dead Vlei with its huge clay pan, surrounding red dunes and the eroded tree trunks of long dead Camelthorn trees. We may climb the dune overlooking Sossusvlei before sitting down to a fine brunch under the trees, with views onto the surrounding desert. In the afternoon we will be transferred the relatively short distance to Wolwedans. After a short rest, our personal guide takes us for a drive on the red sand dunes, to enjoy a sundowner taking in the endless views of the desert plains to the west. Lodge in the Namib dune sea.

Day 3: Wolwedans Dune Lodge

We have a full programme that takes us to explore the diverse desert landscapes of the Namib Rand nature reserve. We experience life on top of the sand dunes, driving in this secluded world that is surprisingly well vegetated and home to many different animal species. We travel down onto the desert plains, to the far blue mountains and on the way we are able to view some of the wild animals that are at home here. We may choose to enjoy lunch at the lodge in the
dunes or at the “Hard Rock” Café, huge granite boulders that make for a perfect setting. We return to our spacious rooms to relax and enjoy sweeping views over this silent and beautiful landscape. Lodge in the Namib Dune Sea.

Day 4: Hotel Heinitzburg, Windhoek

Our final morning in the Namib Desert. Our guide may take us for an early morning walk to enjoy the sunrise over the Losberg Mountain. We will have the opportunity to learn more about the various dune grasses and the fascinating insects, reptiles and other creatures that are at home in the sands of the Namib Desert. After a late breakfast, we transfer to the air strip for our flight to Windhoek. Once in Windhoek, we transfer to our hotel. Luxury Hotel overlooking the city of Windhoek.

Day 5: Departure Day
