Not only is Namibia world renowned for its breath taking natural scenery, it is also famous for being ‘more German than Germany’. This 8 day fly in itinerary showcases the stunning scenery of Sossusvlei, the German flair of Swakopmund and the elusive rhino in Ongava Private Game Reserve.

  • Day 1 - 3

    Sossusvlei
    From Windhoek, you will make your way to the exquisite Sossusvlei region.
    Located in the scenic Namib-Naukluft National Park, Sossusvlei is where you will find the iconic red sand dunes of the Namib. The clear blue skies contrast with the giant red dunes to make this one of the most scenic natural wonders of Africa and a photographer's heaven. This awe-inspiring destination is possibly Namibia's premier attraction, with its unique dunes rising to almost 400 meters - some of the highest in the world. These iconic dunes come alive in morning and evening light and draw photography enthusiasts from around the globe. Visitors can climb 'Big Daddy', one of Sossusvlei’s tallest dunes; explore Deadvlei, a white, salt, clay pan dotted with ancient trees; or for the more extravagant, scenic flights and hot air ballooning are on offer, followed by a once-in-a-lifetime champagne breakfast amidst these majestic dunes.
