THE NATURAL WONDERS OF NAMIBIA
Although Namibia is principally a place of sun, sea and sand, the country is also a place of breathtaking beauty. The image of whales breaching the surface, the stunning starry night skies or the red dunes of Sossusvlei at sunrise will remain forever imprinted on your mind.
Namibia’s colonial German past is immediately evident upon your arrival when you sample the blonde nectar produced by Namib Breweries. After the visit to the brewery, you board another flight in a legendary DC-6 to Lüderitz, a 19th-century desert town with views over the Atlantic Ocean. But before taking up residence in the Nest Hotel, you wander along the famous ghost town of Kolmanskop, a mining village where diamonds literally lay waiting to be scooped up.
The following day, you travel from Diaz Point, a memorial to the Portuguese discoverer and a popular sea lion and penguin spot, to Sossusvlei Lodge, a luxury Arabian-style lodge in the middle of the desert. At night, you sleep under what is probably the starriest sky in the world. But it is in the early morning dawn that Sossusvlei reveals its true beauty: a valley of gently swaying green grasses surrounded by endless rows of red dunes.
We can, on request, organise a breakfast, or even better a hot air balloon ride, so that you don’t miss anything in this magical landscape. Neither you nor your guests will tire of gazing in admiration at the splendour of the Namib Desert in the afternoon, while you and your guests try your hand at sandboarding or riding quads, or in the evening over a dinner in the desert accompanied by the rhythm of African drums.
