Windhoek to Sossusvlei Tour

The tour takes you into the heart of rural Namibia, over high passes and through traditional settlements. The next two days are spent in the shadows of the Sossusvlei dunes, spectacular at any time of the day, but especially sunrise and sunset. The tour ends back in Windhoek where you’ll be pampered for one more night before departing the next day.

This five day guided tour between Windhoek and the breath taking dunes at Sossusvlei is perfect if you don't have much time, but want a short break away from city life.

You'll come back feeling inspired by the majestic beauty of the desert and revived by excellent Namibian hospitality. This is a taster of things to come when you return again for a longer adventure.

Day 2 AND 3

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.
