NAMIBIA Day Tours

Here’s a land of vast quietness, of endless horizons, wide star-studded skies, a ghost town partially reclaimed by the desert, golden desert dunes as far as the eye can see and intriguing rocky plains. This is the getaway of all getaways, a destination in a million.

Glorious daybreak at Sossusvlei Dunes is a sight few experience in their lifetime, and it’s one not to be missed.  These Dunes are among the highest in the world, and – aside from the extreme beauty of a sunrise there – they offer the most extraordinary photographic opportunities.  Our guide takes us on a walk to Deadvlei, and for the determined among us, an exhilarating hike to the top of a dune, for a panoramic view of the desert as far as the eye can see. Nothing like it!

This is our heavenly Out of Africa experience, and it’s glorious, exhilarating, even romantic! Up, up and away in a hot air balloon, floating above the Namib Desert for an hour, with a rare birds-eye view of the unique landscape below.  And afterwards, a decadent champagne breakfast on terra firma, much like Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton would have enjoyed.

  • Namib Desert experience from the air
  • Champagne breakfast

NAMIB DESERT TOUR


HALF DAY TOUR
Departs Daily on request at 09h00/14h00
Returns at ±13h00 / 18h00
(Min 3 guests)
The Namib is the oldest living desert in the world, amazingly filled with unusual plant and animal life. We tour the area in comfort as we set off in our air-conditioned vehicle towards the eerie crater known as Moon Valley, the result of millions of years of erosion.  We discover curious flora and fauna of the desert, an inhospitable environment which at first glance, seems unlikely to support any life at all, but certainly does. We hunt down lichen, for this region holds some of the world’s richest lichen fields, and we see what was once described as the ‘world’s strangest plant’, the Welwitschia, the world’s oldest living fossil plant.  This tour is all about discovering how nature and her desert-adapted creatures survive in this harsh, but exquisitely beautiful environment. A particularly worthwhile expedition!

YOUR EXPERIENCE HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Moon Valley crater
  • Lichen
  • Welwitschia
  • Desert flora and fauna

Our transport takes us to a breathtaking viewpoint at Sossusvlei, and we set ourselves up in comfort to watch the landscape become increasingly saturated by the exquisite tones of the desert. Photographers, this is your moment. The sun sinks over the Sossusvlei dunes, painting pictures of awe-inspiring colours and contrasts over the vast desert plains and nearby mountain ranges. If we’re even luckier, we might see a few nocturnal desert dwellers, such as aardvark and the bat-eared fox...but no matter, for the sight of Sossusvlei at sunset is truly reward enough.

  • Sossusvlei
