The desert plains and shimmering mountains are sure to gobble up your memory card and the complete solitude might have you talking to yourself. One thing is for certain, you will always remember the Namib Desert as a place of singular beauty and serenity.

Accommodation options vary from comfortable to super luxury and you can choose to stay the recommended three nights or you can add or remove a day either side if necessary.

Detailed Itinerary

  • Day 1 - 3: Sossusvlei

    Departing from either Windhoek or Swakopmund the Namib Desert Fly-in Safari to Sossusvlei and the Namib-Naukluft Park is an essential add-on to any Namibian tour.

    On the way: Fly over sheer mountains, gravel plains with cosmic markings and the blonde grass-covered fields of the Pro-Namib between the Namib Desert and the Naukluft mountain range.

    When you're there: A short ground-level transfer takes you to your desert lodge where lunch and a cool siesta await. Scenic drives and walks through this unspeakably large nature reserve take you to sundowners: a charming African concept whereby you find a suitably attractive perch to watch the sun go down while quenching your thirst with an ice cold drink.

    Optional activities include a day-trip, starting before dawn, to the tallest dunes in the world at Sossusvlei. Spend most of the day exploring the Dead Pan, Sossusvlei and, if you've got the strength, climbing to the top of said tallest dunes – the view at sunrise is worth the effort.

    Scenic drives, nature walks, hot-air ballooning or a peaceful afternoon snoozing by the pool are some of the more common activities on offer. Ranging from comfortable to luxurious, the accommodation options all offer efficient service, good food, good wine and comfortable rooms.

    Accommodation: Sossusvlei Lodge (standard) or Kulala Desert Lodge (luxury)

“Thanks for all your work putting together a holiday we truly loved”

We would like to commend the high service received from Namibian Tours and Safaris especially taking into account the short length of time you had to arrange this holiday for us. The recommendations and itinerary were ideal with the majority of our stay in each location being the right duration. The whole process of booking this holiday was hassle free and we would not hesitate in recommending your services to others.

We would specifically like to thank you, Alison, for all of your hard work which resulted in a truly fabulous holiday for us. Also, it was great to meet up with you in Solitaire where you expressed so much love for your country and this was clearly mirrored in the schedule and service you presented to us allowing us to experience this fantastic country. It will not be the case of 'if' we return to Namibia, it is more the case of 'when' we will return as we enjoyed it so much.

“Edward did a super job”

A special mention for Edward he did a super job – vouchers and maps were with our car hire agency at the airport – book presentation of whole trip was clear, easy to follow and complete. He even gave us his mobile No in case we encounter some problems. Really to recommend as Tour Operator and will use them again next time.

Road – all went well and thanks to have recommended a 4Wheel Drive Car – due to rough road conditions we appreciated – you could do it with a normal car and met tourists with B type cars but they took much longer for the journeys – had more issues with flat tyres and most admitted next time they will take a 4Wheel Drive Car.

Would like to thank you for all your time spent and hard work to find best places, difficult tasks due to budget restrictions. I will recommend you and your agency whenever I can – actually already did in Joburg – hope brings you some new customers - and of course will come to you for my next trip this time to South Africa hopefully in 2012.

“Thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us”

Dear Wilmari,
Back home and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for planning a perfect vacation for us. I was especially pleased that for the accommodation with dinner all knew about my allergies and cooked accordingly. The Cheetah experience made my daughter very happy and they were so kind to not even charge me for taking pictures.

Highlight of our trip was the stay in Onguma The Fort and we are determined to return one day.

As pointed out before, the Namib Desert Lodge I cannot recommend to anybody (fined for driving on their property and below average dinner buffet) and also the Olivia Guesthouse was a letdown when it came to the food (lunch and breakfast).

I have posted some pictures on Flickr, maybe you want to have a look and I'm always happy to read comments.

Last but not least: Could you please send us the itinerary you prepared for us and we received at arrival electronically? Some of my friends are interested to book the same trip with you.
