What our specialists say...

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.

  • Windhoek

Day 2 Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei

Early this morning you will set off with your driver-guide for the dunes - the light is best at the very start of the day as the shadows on the sides of the dunes create stark contrasts which is fantastic for photography. You will access the dunes through the private Kulala Gate, so you'll get there before the crowds. Depending on what you decide with your driver-guide, you are likely to walk into Dead Vlei, which is a huge white-floored pan with ghostly dead trees. The more adventurous can climb up Big Daddy dune at the end of the Vlei, and run down the dune into Dead Vlei! You will enjoy a picnic brunch and visit the Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge. Spend the rest of the day relaxing or enjoying an afternoon drive if you're not too tired.
