Our local partner will meet you at Windhoek International airport and take you to your chosen accommodation.
Accommodation option 1 (Standard) – De Vagebond Bed & Breakfast
De Vagebond offers 12 comfortable rooms, ranging from dormitories to a one-bedroom apartment. The bed and breakfast option gives you the best of both worlds: a delicious breakfast served in the breakfast room or garden verandah, and lunch and dinner a short walk away at one of the restaurants and bars in Klein Windhoek. Relax around the pool before turning in for a comfortable night ahead of your journey the next day.
Accommodation option 2 (Superior) – Olive Grove Guest House
Located in a peaceful area of Windhoek, the Olive Grove Guest House offers everything for the discerning traveller: elegant accommodation, tastefully decorated furnishings, internet access, spa bath and plunge pool and a wellness room for relaxing therapies to help you unwind.
The journey from Windhoek to Sossusvlei takes you through rural Namibia, summiting the Kupferberg Pass and Spreetshoogte Pass and descending into fertile valleys. Beautiful views unfold around you before stopping briefly at Solitaire – an isolated settlement evocative of tumbleweed scenes in road-trip movies.
In the early mornings, the silhouette of the dunes against the pastel sky is a photographer’s dream. Breakfast is served in the dappled sunlight under camel thorn trees. It’s the perfect start to a day clambering up and over the dunes and down towards the spectacular scenery at the base of the Deadvlei. And a visit to the Sesriem Canyon is not to be missed – it’s a 30-metre deep cleft in the ground that flattens out into the desert landscape.
Accommodation option 1 (Standard) – Soft Adventure Camp
The Soft Adventure Camp is perfect for nature lovers who want to experience an undisturbed night under the starlit Namibian sky. The 15 en-suite canvas chalets are designed for comfort in all seasons; and the bar and restaurant are ideal for relaxing with a chilled beer and delicious, freshly-prepared meal. Cool off in the splash pool under the shadow of granite rocks, or take a tour with experienced guides to see animals congregating at the nearby watering hole.
Accommodation opotion 2 (Superior) – Namib Naukluft Lodge
The Namib Naukluft Lodge offers 16 well-designed en-suite rooms with super comfortable beds and private verandas looking out into impressive natural scenery. Meals are prepared and served in the open-air during warmer months; and the fireplace is a cosy gathering place during cooler seasons. For the more active traveller, take an easy walk in the early morning hours, or play a round on the unique nine-hole desert golf course.
Your guides will collect you at 9:00am for the return journey to Windhoek. If the road and weather conditions on the mountain passes are in your favour, you’ll be there by lunch time – the perfect opportunity to discover more about this fascinating city.
