Day 3: Namib Desert

Conduct an early morning excursion along the path of the ancient Tschaub River into the Namib Sand Sea including a visit to the famed Sossusvlei, Dune 45 and Deadvlei. Sossusvlei, with its monumentally high dunes, the shadows of their sinuous crests continually changing as the day waxes and wanes, is one of the most surprisingly stunning place in Namibia, with huge star-shaped mountains of sand, the highest estimated at 25 m. The warm colors of the sand, ranging from pale apricot to brick orange and deep red, contrast vividly with the impressive white, sometimes silvery, surfaces of the deflationary clay pans at some of their bases. You will be back at the lodge for lunch. We suggest an afternoon excursion to the Sesriem Canyon, a small yet picturesque canyon carved over millions of years into the Tschaub River.

Today will be spent game viewing as you cross the Etosha National Park from the central Okaukuejo Region to the eastern Namutoni Region. The National Park spans an area of 22.270 square kilometres and gets its name from the large Etosha Pan, which is almost entirely within the park. Etosha, meaning “place of dry water”, is a huge, flat pan of about 5.000 square kilometres. The pan provides a great, parched, silver-white backdrop of shimmering mirage to an area of semi-arid savannah grassland. The pan fills with water briefly in the summer, then converts to a shallow lagoon teeming with flamingos and pelicans. In contrast, the surrounding bush and grasslands provide habitat for Etosha’s diverse wildlife. Overnight accommodation at your camp on a full board basis. Evenings can be spent game viewing at the floodlit waterholes.
