Namibia Highlights

Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 2,295

This fascinating country is full of wide horizons, endless stretches of golden desert dunes and unusual rocky plains. Begin in Windhoek and spend time discovering Namibia’s many highlights.


Namibia is perhaps Africa’s most unique wilderness, offering both the world’s highest desert dunes, and a staggering variety of wildlife. Experience its contrasts on this 9 day tour, combining the best of sand and safari.

Sossusvlei is a section of the Namib Desert marked by towering red dunes surrounding a salt and clay pan. For most visitors, this is Namibia’s star attraction. The area’s surreal landscapes and dazzling colours offer an Africa like no other. Visit nearby Sesriem Canyon, a 35 metre deep gauge eroded into the desert floor.

Nestled at the southern end of the Skeleton Coast, Swakopmund is a wetland area blessed with one of the continent’s most incredible sights, as hundreds of thousands of flamingoes descend on Walvis Bay’s lagoon to feed. Enjoy a day at leisure in Swakopmund with the option of a marine cruise, desert tour, scenic flight, quad biking and much more.

Go in search of the rare Desert Elephant in Damaraland. Hardy plants also thrive in this remote region, which you can explore by mountain bike, 4x4 or on foot. Plenty more game awaits your camera at Etosha National Park, including cheetah, lions and giraffes. You’ll also explore Burnt Mountain, Organ Pipes and the Petrified Forest, along with Twyfelfontein, home to Bushman artwork over 600 years old.

Namib Desert

This morning demands an early start.

Sossusvlei, where the mostly dry Tsauchab River ends abruptly amongst majestic dunes, will give you the opportunity to walk up one of these dunes to admire the desert landscape. Thereafter the tour continues to the Sesriem Canyon, a life sustaining natural phenomenon in the heart of the Namib Desert.
