On arrival at Windhoek Airport you will be met and driven to your hotel.

They will also be present whilst your car is delivered to ensure that any questions you have are answered.
Day 3 The NamibRand Nature Reserve
Leaving Windhoek you will head south to the NamibRand Nature Reserve - a drive of about six hours. We recommend you aim to get here around 3pm in time for an afternoon nature drive or scenic walk.

Day 6 Sossusvlei & Sesriem
Spend the day enjoying the wonders of the Namib Desert and its massive sand dunes. You can leisurely stroll through the shifting shapes or tackle one of the bigger dunes and try to climb it. Lunch under a shady tree will be the reward for whatever you decide to do in the Vlei.
Day 7 Swakopmund and Pelican Point
After breakfast you will drive north to Swakopmund, situated on the Atlantic Coast. In the afternoon you can explore the town or enjoy an activity - perhaps some quad biking through the dunes.
Day 8 Swakopmund and Pelican Point
Take a boat cruise today in search of the seals and dolphins off Pelican Point. This is a great excursion and will offer you the chance to get up close to these mischievous creatures. There are plenty of other excursions to enjoy here as well such as a guided trip to Sandwich Harbour, kayaking, birding tours, or a living desert tour.
