What to Expect
Windhoek – Sossusvlei
Guests are picked up from their accommodation in Windhoek for the first leg of the journey. Just after Rehoboth, we turn westwards into the Kalahari Desert overnight at Namib desert lodge. Enjoy the relaxed and friendly ambience while cooling off at the pool, watching gemsbok arrive at the waterhole to drink, walking the trails into the dunes or dining in the cosy restaurant.
It’s an early start today for the drive southwards to Sesriem and Sossusvlei for some of the highest sand dunes in the world and the magnificent otherworldly landscape. The vlei – or seasonal pan – fills with water in years of good rainfall when the Tsauchab River rushes through the Sesriem Canyon into the desert. The river’s flow is curtailed by the belt of apricot-coloured dunes at Sossusvlei where it eventually sinks sleepily into the sand. For most of the year, Sossusvlei is a dry pan, encircled by mighty sand dunes. The best view is from a height and it is worth a short climb up the adjacent Big Daddy dune to marvel at the desert vista.

Rise and Shine!
After breakfast, we began our journey over the mountains and a long scenic road, back to Windhoek. We stop at Solitaire to stretch our legs, then proceed back to Windhoek via the Khomas Hochland Mountains range back to civilization. We are due back into the city late afternoon.
