Day 1 : Monday : Fish River Canyon
Leaving Windhoek behind us, we fly in a southwesterly direction and along the edge of the Kalahari Desert to the spectacular Nama Karoo.
Southern Namibia is part of a 4-desert biome, accentuated with harsh, yet awesome landscape vistas that send our imagination hurtling through time.
Our lodge for the night is set amidst huge granite boulder in close vicinity to the Fish River Canyon, the second largest of its kind on earth.
Days 2 & 3 : Tuesday & Wednesday : Sossusvlei
This morning we visit the Fish River Canyon, a 550-meter deep chasm created by the shifting of tectonic plates and erosion.
After a nature drive on the lodge property we fly west towards the coastal Namib Desert and can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the canyon. The Namib is the oldest desert on Earth, accentuated by silent giants of gleaming sand. These star dunes, whose shapes can best be admired from the air, twist like tendrils towards the world’s highest dunes that form the magnificent Sossusvlei.
On day two an open vehicle excursion takes us to Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei, a symphony of sand turning into an orchestra of burnished colours as the gigantic desert waves are painted from red through orange by the rising sun
