Namibia Sea and Sand

Namibia is a country of fascinating contrast, where desert meets the sea and extraordinary natural landscapes contrast with eclectic urban living. This seven-day tour gives you a chance to sample the drama and simplicity of its natural and historical beauty, while enjoying elegant hospitality in the hands of knowledgeable hosts.

Namibia is one of our favourite destinations. The roads unravel into the distance as we journey deeper into the country, revealing spectacular views that unfold all around us. A driving holiday into Namibia is not to be rushed.

You'll find elegant hospitality in Windhoek, breath-taking photo opportunities in Sossusvlei, desert tranquility with ancient red sand dunes as the backdrop to your stay in Swakopmund and marine abundance in Walvis Bay.

Day 1

Windhoek is a melting pot of colonial and contemporary culture. Take a tour through the city to explore it all before taking it easy before your journey continues tomorrow. We have suggested two options for accommodation, but there are other excellent places to stay in Windhoek that will suit your budget and needs.

Accommodation option 1 – Elegant Guest House

The Elegant Guest house is all about simple elegance and style. It’s close to the Central Business District, which is ideal for exploring the city’s night life. But we also love its garden, library and splash pool, where you can relax after a day of discovery.

Accommodation option 2 – Olive Grove Guest House

This upmarket, tastefully decorated gem is perfect for discerning travellers who love to indulge in beautiful surroundings and soothe travel-weary bodies in the luxury spa.

Day 2 AND 3

Soaring sand dunes glow red in the setting sun. If you get there after the rains, a turquoise lake settled in the clay provides a dramatic contrast; and the starkly beautiful Sesriem Canyon drives a deep cleft into the ground, holding still water in the desert plains. Make full-colour memories as you join the guided tour that includes lunch in the dunes paired with fine wines and other cold refreshments; or take a tour at sunset and watch the earth turn red.

Accommodation option 1 – Hoodia Desert Lodge

The Hoodia Desert Lodge is surrounded by the mountains and dunes that have put Namibia on the world’s bucket list. It’s quiet and friendly – and the gateway to the desert’s dramatic beauty.

Accommodation option 2 – Sossusvlei Lodge

This 44 000 hectare private lodge is a stone’s throw away from the Sesriem Canyon, the Namib Naukluft Park and the majestic dunes. Lounge around the pool, dine around the grill and watch the silent horizon from the observation deck on the flat roof.

Day 4 AND 5

Swakopmund awaits, with its old-town charm set against the icy Atlantic and the sun-baked Namib Desert. As the daily coastal fog lifts, you’ll find artists rubbing shoulders with toughened miners, colonial descendants and graceful women in traditional Herero dress. At sunrise and sunset the Moon Landscape highlights the country’s harsh geography, while in broad daylight sand-boarders and quad bikers play in the dunes. If natural beauty is more your thing, then follow the trail to the living fossils, the giant Welwitschia mirabilis; or the abundant marine life that thrives off the shore from Walvis Bay.

Accommodation option 1 – Cornerstone Guest House 

Choose from three self-catering apartments, all fitted with high quality facilities and which can sleep up to six people: Moringa Gardens, located in the centre of Swakopmund; An der Mole, close to the beach, restaurants and protected swimming area; and Atlantik Sicht, which provides easy access to the Tug Restaurant, perched at the end of the restored jetty.

Accommodation option 2 – Desert Breeze Lodge

If you want peace under a star-pricked sky, rich desert silence – and no television, Desert Breeze is the place to stay. Its architecture is unique, its staff are friendly and the view is of the oldest desert in the world. And yet it’s just a few minutes’ drive from the centre of Swakopmund.
