Lodge near Sesriem, Namib Nauklauft Park

Today we leave camp at dawn arriving at the Namib Naukluft Park gate as the sun rises. Our drive takes us down an ancient river bed surrounded by the towering dunes of the Namib Desert as we head to the 2x4 parking area (around 55kms). From here we take a 4x4 shuttle into the Sossusvlei Dunes area to admire the beautiful orange-red sand dunes in the warm early morning light. The Sossusvlei Dunes of Namibia are amongst the highest dunes in the world and exploring this desert area we experience the quiet tranquility and solitude of this distinctive region. We explore the unique Sossusvlei area on foot before travelling into the barren Dead Vlei. This large expanse of bleached flat clay is covered in cracks and dotted with skeletal thorn trees, contrasting sharply with the huge, vibrantly coloured dunes in the background. From Dead Vlei we can either walk or catch the 4x4 shuttle back to our safari vehicle. Along the way back to our overnight lodge accommodation near Sesriem, we stop at the famous Dune 45. We climb the renowned sand dune or explore the area around the base, depending on what you prefer. Then we make our way back to Sesriem, visiting the nearby Sesriem Canyon, one of the few permanent water sources in the Namib. After Sesriem Canyon we return to our safari lodge arriving in the late afternoon in time to catch a stunning sunset over the desert. Our overnight stay is in twin share rooms or permanent tents with en-suite bathrooms. Dinner will be prepared by your safari guide at camp. (BLD).
