Day 2
You will have a very early start today. The highlight in the Southern Region is Sossusvlei with its dunes, the highest of which is estimated to be 325m. They were formed by strong multi-directional winds, and are at their highest and most spectacular where the west-flowing Tsauchab River empties itself into the vlei. When it has rained sufficiently in the interior for the Tsauchab River to come down in flood and fill the main pan, flamingos and other aquatic birds are drawn to the area. At the entry to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1km in length. At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down 30 to 40 m, are pools of water, which become replenished after good rains. Sesriem derives its name from the time when early pioneers tied six lengths of rawhide thongs together to draw water from the pools.

Day 3
Today you will depart from the lodge and continue via the Namib Naukluft Park to Swakopmund. The definitive feature of this region, the Namib Desert, is known for the unusual beauty of its landscape. The Namib Naukluft Park changes from expansive gravel plains to vast dune seas, rugged canyons with towering walls of volcanic rock and distant mountain ranges. Swakopmund is much loved by Namibians as a welcome respite from the heat in the interior. It is also popular amongst visitors because of its old-world charm and relaxed atmosphere. Founded 1892 during the period of German colonial rule, it served as the territory’s main harbour for many years.
