One of the highlights is visiting Dead Vlei, do it so early as possible because of the heat. Take some water with you. And enjoy the surrealistic landscapes with the orange and brown dunes under a clear blue sky and on the shiny white floor...More

Spectacular landscape and a surprisingly varied selection of wild life to see. Great fun in 4x4 vehicles along the coast and over the amazing sand dunes.

We first entered the Namib desert when headed towards Ludritz and have been to several other parts since. It is really breathtaking and has so much to offer in terms of landscape and wildlife. Truly amazing.

It is no contest that the Namib yields an amazing adventure in Namibia. The Deadvlei in Sossusvlei, the amazing dunes, including Dune 45. Climbing the dune before the break of dawn. The twilight glow shimmering in the horizon. What a place to be.

In the Namib Desert you can do a lot of activities. You can go sand-surfing, book a desert-tour (Living Desert Adventures), ride on camels (Swakopmund) or ride a quad-bike. You will love all these adventures things.

Welcome to the Namib desert near Walvis Bay, Namibia. The Namib runs into the Atlantic Ocean, so our desert trip was beside the Atlantic Ocean. Unique and great trip. I suspect many guides can take you on this nature tour. We took our nature tour...More
