Meet your safari leader at 08:00am for a departure briefing. We then drive through the rolling hills south of Windhoek and drop down the escarpment onto the desert plains to stop at Solitaire for the world’s best apple tart (own expense). This afternoon we travel to our lodge and enjoy the vast open spaces of the Namib Desert.
The following day we visit the Namib Naukluft National Park to witness the amazing landscapes of Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. The vleis are clay pans formed by the occasional flooding of the Tsauchab River. Sossusvlei is dotted with ancient Camel Thorn trees (Acacia Erioloba) while the trees on Deadvlei are lifeless and stark against the surrounding tall orange sand dunes.

The Tsisab Ravine at the foot of the mountain contains more than 1000 rock shelters and some 45,000 rock paintings including the famous “White Lady”, which is a short 40 minute walk up the ancient watercourse.
Our lodge, situated in the dry Ugab River valley, is ideally situated to explore the area in search of the rare desert elephants and we’ll join a local guide on a 4WD excursion.

Natural springs and waterholes around the edges provide life-giving water that sustains the wildlife in this otherwise arid area.
Elephants coated in the white salt dust from the pan make for extraordinary photos.
