Tailor-made Namib Desert and Sossusvlei Holidays

Explore the world’s oldest desert, a never-ending sea of rippling sands that crest in knife-edge-topped dunes beneath an azure sky. Recognised by UNESCO for its shifting sand sea, the Namib Desert stretches over 2,000 kilometres from Angola along Namibia’s coast into South Africa. Fog from the churning Atlantic provides moisture for vegetation and animals that have adapted over centuries to deal with the arid climes, from rhinos and elephants to welwitschia plants and quiver trees that shed their limbs in times of drought. Diamonds dug from the desert’s 55-million-year-old depths sparkle as brightly as the stars in the glass-clear night sky.

A pilgrimage to the former riverbed Sossusvlei will reward you with the tallest of the Namib’s blood-orange dunes. Wake at dawn, before the sand can scorch your feet, to climb the 325-metre Big Daddy or slip-slide your way to the top of Dune 45. If you don’t want to hike, soar over this sandy wonderland in a hot air balloon to watch the light paint the dunes in hues of turmeric, tangerine and gold. In Deadvlei, dozens of skeletal dead camelthorn trees sit stranded in a clay pan, their stiff limbs protruding from a carpet of cracked chalk, refusing to decompose in the bone-dry atmosphere.

Ask our Namibia experts to help you plan your desert adventure.
