Game Drive in the Kalahari Desert

Kalahari game drive

On arrival at Windhoek Airport you’ll be met by a Southern Africa Travel representative who’ll assist you throughout your journey. Once settled into our air-conditioned vehicle, you’ll depart to Auob Lodge.

This comfortable lodge lies on the fringes of the Kalahari Desert, around a 5-hour drive south of Windhoek. On arrival at the lodge there’s plenty of time to settle into your room and have a refreshing dip in the lodge swimming pool before setting off on an afternoon game drive.

That evening enjoy your first Namibian sunset over the red sands of the Kalahari, before the clear skies become bright with millions of stars. 

Highlights

  • World’s tallest sand dunes
  • Famous landscape of Deadvlei
  • Visit to Sesriem Canyon
  • Predator sanctuary
  • Performance by local choir

Sesriem Canyon and the Dunes of Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei Dunes

After breakfast you’ll be driven to Sossusvlei, stopping en route at Maltahöhe. Here you’ll be treated to a performance by the Oa Hera Choir who sings about both the Nama and the Tswana cultures.

Hammerstein Lodge lies amongst huge stone formations, close to the entrance to Sossusvlei. There is a predator sanctuary on the property where you can see caracul, leopard and cheetah. There’s also a tame springbok that grazes on the lodge lawns.

A guided tour takes you to the massive dunes of Sossusvlei. These dunes are amongst the tallest in the world, and glow a rich red in the early morning and late afternoon light. Next you'll visit the vast clay pan of Deadvlei where blackened trees stand stark against a dune backdrop.

Another highlight is Sesriem Canyon, its sides carved out by centuries of erosion.  The canyon lies close to the entrance to Sossusvlei.

Highlights

  • Moon Landscape and Welwitschia plants
  • Boat cruise to see dolphins and seals
  • Sand boarding, skydiving and quad biking
  • German colonial architecture
  • Good restaurants and bars

Exploring the Seaside Town of Swakopmund

Marine cruise in Walvis Bay

A good breakfast sets you up for your drive to Swakopmund, Namibia’s coastal jewel.  On the way, you’ll travel through Kuiseb canyon, and the Moon Landscape with its strange looking Welwitschia plants – some over a thousand years old!

The next day is yours at leisure. Explore the town of Swakopmund with its seaside promenades, bakeries and brauhaus, and we’d highly recommend a boat cruise on the Walvis Bay Lagoon. These cruises offer up regular sightings of pelicans, flamingos, dolphins and seals.

Your accommodation in Swakopmund is the charming Hotel Eberwein.  Build in 1910, the hotel was once the private, stately mansion of Hermann Wille who designed many of the elegant, German colonial-style buildings in Swakopmund.

Highlights

  • Okahandja Woodcarvers Market

Shop for Souvenirs En Route Back to Windhoek

Namibia road

After breakfast your journey takes you back to Windhoek, the centre of Namibia.  On the way, you have the option of stopping at the Okahandja Woodcarvers Market where you can buy handcrafted souvenirs.

Upon reaching Windhoek, say farewell to your guide as he leaves you either at the hotel of your choice in Windhoek or at the international airport.
