The sand dunes of Sossusvlei in the Namib Desert are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world. Situated in the largest conservation area in Africa (the Namib-Naukluft National Park), Sossusvlei is possibly Namibia’s most spectacular and best-known attraction. Characterized by the large red dunes that surround it, Sossusvlei is a large, white, salt and clay pan and is a great destination all year round. The dunes in this area are some of the highest in the world, reaching almost 400 meters, and provide photographic enthusiasts with wonderful images in the beautiful morning and evening light.

Day 3: Sesriem; Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei literally translates to “dead-end marsh”, as it is the place where the dunes come together preventing the Tsauchab River to flow any further, some 60km east of the Atlantic Ocean. However, due to the dry conditions in the Namib Desert the River seldom flows this far and the pan remain bone-dry most years. During an exceptional rainy season the Tsauchab fills the pan, drawing visitors from all over the world to witness this spectacular site.

Photographic enthusiasts are spoilt with a glassy “lake” holding reflections of the surrounding dunes. When the pan fills it can hold water for as long as a year. Despite the harsh desert conditions in the area, one can find a wide variety of plants and animals that have adapted to survive.

Day 4: Sesriem to Swakopmund

Once you have enjoyed a leisurely breakfast overlooking the Namib Desert, you depart the Sossusvlei Lodge and make your way north to the coastal town of Swakopmund. Enjoy a scenic drive to your Luxury hotel located on in this historical town.

Arriving at your hotel in the late afternoon, you are met and assisted to your Luxury Suite for your two night stay. Enjoy an afternoon and evening exploring this historical town or enjoying refreshments overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 5: Swakopmund.

Swakopmund has always been the jewel of Namibia's coastline, and has built a reputation as adrenaline-filled destination, sure to satisfy travelers’ every whim. The Namib dunes surrounding Swakopmund are some of the highest in the world. Palm-lined streets, seaside promenades, fine accommodation, a pleasant summer climate and decent beaches.
