This Namibian honeymoon allows you to see the key highlights of the country whilst staying in beautiful accommodation. It is ideal for couples who like to explore without feeling rushed with plenty of relaxation and time to enjoy a sundowner drink in some of the world's most spectacular scenery. The itinerary begins in Namibia's capital, Windhoek, before taking in the famous and iconic dunes of Sossusvlei. From here you will travel to the colonial coastal town of Swakopmund where you can enjoy activities such as kayaking with seals or exploring the dunes of Sandwich Harbour by 4x4. In Damaraland you can search for desert-adapted elephant and black rhino. Finally you will spend time in Etosha, Namibia's premier national park, where game congregates around the waterholes leading to some fantastic safari experiences.

On arrival in Windhoek, you're met by your private driver and driven to your guest house.

Your fully insured car is delivered to your accommodation, and the rest of the day is yours to relax or explore Namibia's capital. Depending on your time of arrival, you could browse the city's shops and markets, visit the State Museum to learn about Namibia's history, or head out for something to eat - we can book you a table at one of our recommended restaurants before your arrival should you wish.
Day 3 Sossusvlei and Sesriem
I would recommend an early start this morning as the drive from Windhoek to Sesriem takes approximately six hours. The roads are mainly gravel but are in good condition and the views along the way are breathtaking. It may be worth stopping off at one of the supermarkets in Windhoek to stock up on snacks and water for the journey. If you like apple pies, I would also recommend stopping off at Solitaire on the way for a short break!
Day 4 Sossusvlei and Sesriem
This morning your guide will wake you up and take you into the park to visit the largest sand dunes in Namibia and arguably the world. The contrast between the sand and the clear blue skies is incredible. You can enjoy a lovely stroll through the dunes and visit Deadvlei. If you are feeling energetic, you can climb to the top of Dune 45, or for the ultimate dune challenge, you can climb 'Big Daddy' for some fantastic views and photo opportunities. This afternoon after lunch you can take part in another activity or if you prefer, relax by the pool and enjoy the heat and beautiful scenery around you.
Day 5 Sossusvlei and Sesriem
You have another full day in the area to make the most of the activities on offer. Your guide can take you to Sesriem Canyon, take you on nature drives or you can enjoy the walking trails in the area. If you would like to make your stay extra special, you can book a sunrise hot air balloon for one of your mornings here. The view is spectacular and a once in a lifetime experience. This evening watch the sunset over with your favourite drink and enjoy the beautiful colours.
