Windhoek – Namib Desert Camp, outside of the Namib Naukluft Park (350 km)
You will be collected between 08:00 & 08:30
We travel out over the Eros Mountains and along scenic roads, on our way
south-west to the desert. We also pass over part of the Naukluft Mountains
the Khomas Hochland range on our journey today and head down from Namibia’s
central plateau by way of the beautiful Remhoogte Pass.
Coming out of the mountains we reach open plains and from here it is only a
short distance to our next stop, the tiny town of Solitaire. We will stop
here for some refreshments before continuing on through desert scenery.
We cross some open grass savannah and farmlands before the terrain begins to
give way to the immense red sand dune desert of the Namib. We aim to arrive
at our camp during the late afternoon and watch the colours glow and change
on distant mountains to the east.
Namib Desert Camp – Sossusvlei - Namib Desert Camp, outside of the Namib
Naukluft Park (camping) (BLD)
A pre dawn start is essential this morning as we want to catch the soft
light of the sunrise on the desert. After passing through Sesriem, the
gateway to the dunes and driving into the heart of the dune field, we reach
Sossusvlei itself by walking the last 5 km through the dunes.
The walk is like nothing else, in the cool of the morning, with soft
sunlight just beginning to play over the dunes creating a sharp light and
shadow contrast across the whole desert.
Ancient mineral pans, stunted camel thorn trees and the chance of seeing a
gemsbok or maybe an ostrich make the photo opportunities perfect.
We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting dune 45, and as
the day wears on we return to Sesriem for lunch to escape the heat of the
afternoon. As the day cools off in the late afternoon we will take a short
excursion to the Sesriem Canyon.
Namib Desert Camp - Windhoek (450 km) (BL)
After breakfast we begin our journey, over the mountains and along scenic
roads, back to Windhoek. We will travel back by different roads, this time
climbing up to Windhoek and travelling by way of the massive Gamsberg Pass
in the Khomas Hochland Mountain Range on our way back to civilization.
We are due back into the city around 16:00 and you will be dropped off at
your accommodation on our return.
