Arrive at Windhoek airport where you will be welcomed by Ralph Kirsten and transferred to your lodge – River Crossing – on the outskirts of Windhoek with an amazing view of the city from the natural surrounds.

Day 2 & 3: Sossusvlei

Travel: 350km +-4h30

Early morning breakfast before departing in the direction of Sossusvlei to the South. Stop en route for lunch in a remote guestfarm before continuing towards the dune sea and Sossusvlei. Arrival at Sossus Dune Lodge in the Namib Naukluft Park. 

Awake before sunrise and head into the park for sunrise in the dunes…Light breakfast and walk to the famous ‘hidden vlei’ where the magic of the dunes becomes apparent with the rising sun and the contrasts that accompany it! Oryx, springbok and ostriches are the usual suspects in photo bombing many unsuspecting travellers… Return to the lodge for lunch with an afternoon visit to the Sesriem canyon and Dune Elim for Sunset and the afternoon contrasts in the dunes.

Travel: 330km +-4h30

Driving on salt roads while we head North, we notice the Fog belt and the imminent desert conditions to the East.

With the call of the seals on our minds, we drive inland and into Damaraland…Namibia’s remote North West awaits! Granite insel-bergs dotted with Euphorbia and kannie-doods…the desert adapted fauna & flora is fascinating. We check for signs of passing elephant herds & with some luck catch up with Mama Africa’s herd with Ralph Kirsten’s in depth knowledge of the area and locals with their noses on the ground…Overnight at Twyfelfontein Country Lodge & Palmwag Lodge.
