3-Day Namib Desert Outing
Hidden in what was once a little-known corner of Namibia, between the wild Skeleton Coast and the gravel-faced Naukluft Mountains, the Sossusvlei dunes come close to sand-dune perfection. This itinerary is a great way to experience one of Namibia’s highlights when you are limited timewise. It’s a great tour for business travelers, interns and volunteers working in Namibia, and well as travelers keen on exploring this area.

An early wakeup call means that there will be enough time for pre-dawn snacks and coffee before heading out to the famous sand dunes of Sossusvlei while the temperature is still mild, and when the dune contrasts are at their best.
Our final destination, Deadvlei, or the ‘dead marsh”, is one of the most unique places of Namibia. It is a world-famous White Clay pan which is situated near the Sossusvlei. The views of the different dune formations are quite spectacular coupled with the intriguing camel thorn trees, and other desert flora.
We will enjoy a lovely breakfast among the dunes but will head to our camp for some lunch after our activity. We make our way to the Sesriem canyon in the afternoon for yet another interesting geology tutorial. A long day will come to an end with another lovely fire cooked dinner, as we enjoy our final night in the desert.
We head back to Windhoek this morning. Historically, Namibia’s Klein Aub was known for copper mining from 1964 to 1987, with silver as an accompanying element. However, the closing of the mines saw Klein Aub lose residents, skills and much of its vibrance. We have come to the end of our journey today and our drive takes us back to the central plateau of Namibia, and an increase in height above sea level.
We drove through the stunning Namib Naukluft mountains, before coming to the village of Klein-Aub in the Rehoboth constituency for an exceptional coffee tasting experience. We will transit via the town of Rehoboth and take a brief break there before finally arriving in Windhoek in the late afternoon.
