Namibia Sossusvlei Desert Adventure

Sossusvlei Namibia Desert Safari

Embark on an evocative excursion into the world’s oldest desert when you visit Sossusvlei Namibia with Springbok Atlas. Our Sossusvlei tour will allow you to experience the astonishing contrasts of the Namib, including the white clay pan of Sossusvlei and its surrounding spectacle of sand dunes. The world’s oldest desert is harsh and rugged in landscape and climate, yet so delicate and exquisite in its support of fragile life.

Visit the country’s top desert attractions when you book a Namibia desert safari with us. From your accommodation in a Sossusvlei desert lodge on the edge of the Namib-Naukluft National Park, you’ll have the opportunity to view unique desert-adapted animals that roam the dry valleys and star-shaped dunes of the area.

Day Two

Namib Desert
Enjoy early morning coffee and tea before departing for Sossusvlei, a fascinating world of ecology and unearthly geography. The route travels along the Tsauchab dry riverbed, which has found a way through the dunes until it reaches the vivid white clay saltpan, called Sossusvlei. After a good rainy season, approximately every 7-10 years, the Tsauchab River runs in full flood and fills the Vlei with water, offering sensational scenery with prolific birdlife. The early morning sun offers spectacular pastel colours in the star-shaped dunes. The first stop will be at Dune 45 before continuing to Sossusvlei. Climb one of the dunes – there are plenty – and you might be overwhelmed by the sight of the dynamic and living desert! Breakfast will be served as a picnic under one of the shady camel thorn trees. Afterwards, walk over patches of dunes until you reach the base of the ‘Dead Vlei’, another pan where water once flowed, but all that remains today are the skeletons of trees. Visit the rugged Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon join a guided nature drive to the ‘marble mountain’ (drinks for own account) or relax on your veranda and enjoy a spectacular sunset. [BLD]
