5 Day Travel Package Namibia Itinerary
Day 1: Windhoek – Sesriem
Our Namibia safari rep will meet you in the morning. You will have some time for a briefing on the 3 day travel package Namibia. This will be between 08:00 and 08:30 at your hotel in Windhoek. Namibia’s Capital is surrounded by mountains.
Your travel package Namibia will pass first over the Eros Mountains. This will be followed by the Khomas Hoch-land Range. This takes you from the central Namibian plateau to grassy desert savannah. There will be a stop at Solitaire for petrol. You may as well have your lunch here.
Your 3 day Namib Desert safari continues to Sesriem. Your aim is for you to be there by late afternoon. A short excursion to the nearby sand dunes will do. This is to enjoy the sunset over the dunes and watch the colors glow. Return back to Namib Desert Lodge for dinner and overnight.
Sossusvlei, located in the Namib desert one of the oldest deserts in the world, is one of Namibia’s most spectacular regions and is perhaps one of, if not the most photographed places in Namibia. Sossus vlei, is a small salt pan, surrounded by sand dunes and the pan itself, together with the surrounding areas is commonly called Sossusvlei. It is Namibia’s scenic highlight situated 65km from Sesriem in the Namib Naukluft National Park.
The dunes in Sossusvlei form part of the Namib Sand Sea which was recently declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 2013. The sand was transported by the Orange River in Lesotho and South Africa during flash floods millions of years ago, and was deposited at the mouth of the Orange River south of the Namib Desert.
The cold Benguella currents of the Atlantic Ocean then moved the sand northwards along the shoreline. Then the tides brought the sand onto the shore and the wind blew it inland some 60, 000 million years ago.
The spectacular red color of the dunes these days, is the result of the high iron content in the sand that changes the color through an iron oxidation process over years. The name Sossus literally means ‘a place where water collects’ and vlei is an Afrikaans word for ‘pan’. Although this only happens once in every five years after good rains, the vlei or pan when filled with water by the ancient Tsauchab River, turns into spectacular lake flanked by ruddy and sparkling red dunes around it. The pan retains water for a long time due to the high clay content and this attracts a large number of tourists as it is such an unusual sight.
