Touch down at Windhoek’s Hosea Kutako International Airport to kick-start your Namibia adventure. Here, you will be transferred to your safari lodge at the foot of the majestic Sossusvlei dunes via a chartered flight. Be captivated by the stunning landscape that has remained unchanged for millions of years.
The iconic Sossusvlei dunes of Namibia is a photographer’s paradise: the brilliant blue sky contrasts beautifully against its stunning sunset-red sands. Located in the scenic Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei is the country’s premier attraction. Rising to almost 400m, the dunes is also home to a wonder of desert wildlife including the oryx, springbok, ostriches and an amazing variety of reptiles.
Climb ‘Big Daddy’, one of Sossusvlei’s tallest dunes and see if you spot some of these elusive creatures!
Then, head over to explore Deadvlei. Meaning “dead marsh”, this white salt claypan is characterised by the dead camel thorn trees in the area. For an unparalleled experience of this wondrous dunescape: you may want to opt for a ride in a hot air balloon and enjoy an extravagant champagne breakfast as you soar high above the sands.
