In full detail

Welcome to Namibia

Your photo guide and driver will be waiting for you at the international airport near Windhoek. The guide will accompany you to the guest house in Windhoek. This is also where the Meet and Greet takes place, where the entire trip is discussed in detail again and all the documents for your trip are handed over to you.

The rest of the day is at your leisure, for example to explore the city or to do some shopping for the tour, or you can relax at the pool after the exertion of the journey.

Windhoek is the capital of Namibia and offers a variety of restaurants, shops and accommodation. The city is clean and well organized. Worth seeing in Windhoek are the Christ Church and the craft markets in city center.

In the evening, the group drives to a good restaurant for dinner.

Day trip to the world famous red dunes of Sossusvlei.

It starts early in the morning so that you can still experience the beautiful light of the morning hours. Early entry to the park is possible as our lodge is located within the park.
A narrow tar road takes you past beautiful landscapes and high dunes to Deadvlei and Sossusvlei. A 1.5 km hike takes you over clay flats and a small dune to the ancient, dried up acacia trees of the Dead Vlei, which are now world famous.

Information Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, the largest nature reserve in Africa. The most famous photographs of Namibia undoubtedly come from Sossusvlei. The images are stunning with the intense red dunes and sharp lines. The dunes in this area are the highest in the world, reaching immense heights of almost 400 meters. Climb Dune 45 and enjoy the fantastic view over the dune sea. Another stop is Deadvlei, a dry lake with tree stumps that has become an almost surreal landscape.

Sossusvlei means "dead end swamp" because it is where the dunes that prevent the Tsauchab River from reaching the Atlantic Ocean converge. However, due to the drought in the Namib Desert, this river rarely flows that far at all, hence the pan is dry most years. However, during a good rainy season, the Tsauchab River fills the salt pan and visitors from all over the world flock to the area to experience this spectacular site.

Around noon you can then enjoy your packed lunch under the camel thorn trees by the Sossusvlei Dry Pan.
Afterwards the drive goes back to the entrance gate at Sesriem, where the Sesriem Canyon can also be explored.

In the afternoon you will reach the beautiful lodge again.

Activity: Admission to Namib-Naukluft Park and visit to Sossusvlei, Deadvlei and Sesriem Canyon included in the tour price.

A total highlight is waiting for you today.

Before sunrise you will be picked up at the lodge and brought to the launch site of the hot air balloon. Experience the sunrise high above the desert landscape, with an indescribable view. (This activity is included in tour price)

Drive to the wild Atlantic

On this route, the Namib shows itself from many different sides. You drive past mountains, red dunes, Gaub and Kuiseb Canyon and later the barren areas of the Namib. On particularly hot days, you can see a so-called Fata Morgana here. On the way you can always see typical desert animals, oryx, springbok, ostrich and with a bit of luck even a giraffe.

Stop for a piece of apple pie

The small gas station and rest stop, Solitaire, is a great place to stop. It is very conveniently located on your tour of south western Namibia and on the way to Swakopmund. In the small Solitaire Bakery there are many delicacies, including the best apple pie in Namibia. There is an old car graveyard here that invites you to take great pictures.

As soon as you have reached the Atlantic, you drive the last 40 km on a beautiful tar road, always along the sea, to Swakopmund, probably the most German town in the southern hemisphere. Swakopmund invites you with many beautiful buildings from the colonial period and a beautiful beach promenade.

The "Matterhorn" of Namibia

Today we head inland again to the Spitzkoppe. Your journey today leads north, always along the cold Atlantic. A salt road takes you to the small resort town of Henties Bay. Shortly before Henties Bay you can still see a shipwreck Zeila, which washed up on the beach in August 2008.

From Henties Bay you leave the coast and turn east towards the inland. A partly sandy gravel road now leads you to the Spitzkoppe (approx. 175 km). The Spitzkoppe is Africa's Matterhorn. It is a typical volcanic inselberg that towers over its surroundings at around 1,728 metres. The mighty granite bubbles form a spectacular landscape that is very popular with photographers and climbers. Here it is worth leaving the car behind and taking a short hike. There is also a "Klein Spitzkoppe" of 1,572 meters and the "Pondok Mountains". The Spitzkoppe has beautiful rock carvings, such as in Bushman's Paradise.

Here you can discover rock carvings by the Bushmen, the well-known "Rock Pool", which is filled with water in the rainy season, and the "Rock Arch" which is a great photo opportunity.

Your guide will take you to the best photo opportunities here.

The World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein

Today's route takes you northwest, only on gravel roads, which can be good or bad by turns. Since the journey is the goal on such a journey, you should never rush down the gravel roads. Especially not because you will be rewarded with a breathtaking landscape.
You leave behind the beautiful Erongo Mountains and the Spitzkoppe, as it is worth stopping and admiring the Spitzkoppe from its northern side. We then continue past the highest mountain in Namibia, the Brandberg, which is 2573 m high.

In the afternoon we reach Twyfelfontein. There is the possibility this afternoon to visit the famous stone engravings and the stone organs of Twyfelfontein. You can then arrange this with your guide.
