Embrace the freedom of the open road as we venture into the Kalahari Desert - Namibia's boundless, sandy beauty.

Immerse yourself in the Southern Namib region admiring desert vistas and expansive skies as we conquer the open road.

icon Day 6: Sand Dunes of Sossusvlei and Landscapes of Deadvlei

Location: Sossusvlei

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

In a country renowned for its epic landscapes, competition for the top spot is tough. But it is Sossusvlei and Deadvlei that rightly deserve this crown and it is where we begin our adventure today. Gaze up at the towering Dune 45, then meander into the eerie but beautiful photographers' paradise of Deadvlei, to snap iconic photos of dead camel thorn trees on a bed of white clay pans, perfectly framed by towering sand dunes and clear blue skies. Your early morning adventure in Sossusvlei complete, travel on to explore the ravine walls of the Sesriem Canyon, carved out by the Tsauchab River.

Meet members of the OvaHimba tribe with whom we'll Dive Into Culture to gain insights into their hunter-gatherer traditions that have spanned thousands of years. Your visit is a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience and contributes to funds used for food and other necessities.

icon Day 11: Explore Etosha National Park

Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Explore one of the world's great wildlife sanctuaries on a full-day safari. Climb aboard your safari vehicle and join your expert guide as you travel between watering holes, renowned as the best spots to view the parks' plentiful wildlife. Track herds of elephants as the matriarch slowly and purposefully leads them to the nearest waterhole, and look out for the big cats seeking refuge in the shade from the heat of the day. After a full day of wildlife spotting you'll return to your accommodation in time to watch a beautiful sunset and perhaps toast to a successful day on safari.

Location: Windhoek

With our journey at its close, we say goodbye to our new-found friends and transfer to Windhoek airport.
Please Note: This Namibia Adventure trip is run on a small group basis. The vehicle operating it will be smaller than a standard coach, relative to the number of guests, and it is standard tour operator practise in Namibia for trips of this group size to have a Driver Guide. Roads in Namibia are a combination of tarmac roads and dirt/gravel roads where dust levels can be higher than in other parts of the world. The Namibian government implements a road maintenance programme but their condition can vary and sometimes journeys can feel less than smooth and rougher than on the tarmac roads.
