Sossus 3 Day Camping Tour

  The Sossusvlei 3 day camping tour takes you into the Namib desert , you will be able to see the majestic dunes and the beauty of the desert. Experience the silence and tranquility of Deadvlei, the scenic beauty of the landscape and enjoy the view of the night sky.

Day 1:

Departing from either coastal town early in the morning, we pass through the Namib section of the Namib- Naukluft Park, and have a picnic lunch en route. Arriving at Sesriem campsite or other at late afternoon, camp is quickly pitched, and then on to a vantage point to watch the sunset. Evening meal will be a barbeque.

Day 2:

Early morning rise to be at Dune 45 in time for sunrise and then on to Sossusvlei.

Here we climb the dune, or we can do a tour along the edges of the vlei, with a bit of background on the plant-life, reptiles and small mammals in the area.

For the keen observer, the following animals can be found: Oryx , springbok, ostrich, various lizards and some specially adapted beetles.

Birdlife is in abundance and a wide variety of species can be seen.

 

Moving to the parking area we walk at leisure to the Deadvlei to experience the harshness of the Namib. Deadvlei is an area that was cut off by dunes, so no water could reach the trees that grew there. Today only the dead tree trunks stand on the clay banks. Occasionally one has to wait a while for the other tourists to leave, then the reality of the desert and the quietness and solitude can to be appreciated.

A light lunch, and we wait a bit in the shade of the trees for the worst of the heat to leave. The choice is then yours whether we also move on to Hiddenvlei.

The walk is 2,5 km and the panoramas, the ever-changing colours,  and peacefulness are something to appreciate.

We return to the campsite and view the sunset from either the Sesriem Canyon, or Elim dune.

Dinner will be prepared with limited participation, and then a good night’s sleep after a very hard day.

Day 3:

We have a leisurely breakfast and then head on to Sesriem Canyon .The walk will last about 2 to 3 hours .We head back to camp to break up and start the trip back to the coast. Arrival will be late afternoon.

 

Should the tour start in Windhoek, the route will go via the Gamsberg Pass or Spreetshoogte Pass, and return along the Bullspoort route. The same program as above is followed.
