Namibia is rated as one of the new up and coming destinations by numerous travel guides and articles. The peak season starts in July and runs to October. But just before that, April to June is a lovely time to enjoy this country’s highlights in what we have dubbed “Namibia’s Secret Season”.
It’s a lovely time of year, as it cools down from the heat of the summer, into autumn, and the whole country is summed up in 3 major stops on our tour. Sossusvlei: one of the oldest deserts in the world, with incredible canyons and barchan dunes. Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, on the unspoilt Atlantic Ocean coastline renowned for its dolphin, flamingo and seal sightings, as well as 4 x 4 trails to Sandwich Harbour and then we finally end at our 3rd highlight, the 70 000 hectares Erindi Game Reserve, one of the best, if not the best safari experience in all of Namibia.
Situated at the entrance gate to the Namib Naukluft Park, Sossusvlei Lodge in Namibia offers direct access to the magnificent red sand dunes, the famous pan of Sossusvlei, the blackened trees of Dead Vlei and the exceptional depths of the Sesriem Canyon. Experience the true art of hospitality with the thoughtful touch of attentive staff to contribute to a truly memorable experience. Facilities include a sparkling pool, bar, sundowner deck, beer garden and an alfresco terrace where one can enjoy exquisite food, award-winning wines and magnificent views of the floodlit waterhole.
The Sossusvlei Lodge Adventure Centre provides a range of activities including guided excursions to Deadvlei and Sossusvlei, Elim dune walks, sundowner trips, quad buggy nature drives, Hot Air Ballooning, scenic flights and much more to explore the area’s natural beauty.
