Itinerary 

Day 1 - Fish River Canyon

Canyon Lodge 

DAY 2 -  Sossusvlei

This morning we visit the Fish River Canyon, a 550-meter deep chasm created by the shifting of tectonic plates and erosion. Thereafter we fly west towards the coastal Namib Desert and can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the canyon. The Namib is the oldest desert on Earth, accentuated by silent giants of gleaming sand. These star dunes, whose shapes can best be admired from the air, twist like tendrils towards the world’s highest dunes that form the magnificent Sossusvlei.

Day 3 - Swakopmund

An open vehicle excursion takes us to Sossusvlei, a symphony of sand turning into an orchestra of burnished colours as the gigantic desert waves are painted from red through orange by the rising sun. After visiting the Sesriem Canyon, our journey proceeds along the Atlantic coastline to Swakopmund.

Hotel Zum Kaiser

Day 4 - Damaraland

We travel to Walvis Bay to enjoy a marine cruise. Fur seals and aquatic birds will join us on board whilst we enjoy some sparkling wine and oysters, but we may also see dolphins, leather backed turtles or even a seasonal whale. Our journey proceeds into Damaraland, an area marked by steep mountain massifs that tower over meandering riverbeds.
