This spectacular trip begins with Kulala Desert Lodge in Sossusvlei, located in the scenic Namib-Naukluft National Park. With its iconic red dunes including Big Daddy and the Dead Vlei, it is an ideal introduction to the natural wonders of Namibia. This awe-inspiring destination is possibly Namibia's premier attraction, with its unique dunes rising to almost 400 metres - some of the highest in the world. These iconic dunes come alive in morning and evening light drawing photography enthusiasts from around the globe. Sossusvlei is also home to a variety of desert wildlife including oryx, springbok, ostrich and a variety of reptiles.

We continue to the seaside town of Swakopmund, set along Namibia's stunning coast, known for its wide-open avenues, colonial architecture, and its surrounding otherworldly desert terrain. Founded in 1892 during the period of German colonial rule, it served as the territory's main harbour for many years. Today's lush green lawns, palm trees and carefully tended, and colourful, public gardens enhance this curious desert town, hedged by desert and sea. Swakopmund is much loved because of its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere. A special feature of the town is its jewellery shops, which offer pieces ranging from contemporary African to continental designs. Art and craft shops offer local products, while street vendors sell Namibian rural art. We will enjoy a range of activities from golf, desert and bicycle tours, to museum and gallery visits.

Our tour ends at Damaraland Camp in the spectacularly picturesque area and, near the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Twyfelfontein, which features the largest and most important concentrations of rock art in Africa. The camp offers nature drives and walks, as well as amazing night skies brilliant for star gazing.
