The most spectacular feature of this National Park is the Augrabies Falls, after which the park was named. Here the Orange River, when in flood, thunders 56 meters down over rocks and then continue in a narrow gorge for another 18 kilometres before spreading out and continuing its journey to the coast. As this is a very arid environment, vegetation is hardy and includes succulents, aloes, acacias and the Namaqua fig.  Augrabies is ideal for self-hikes, birdwatching and is also home to 46 mammal species. Animals and birds to look out for are Broadley’s flat lizard known as the Augrabies flat lizard, rock hyrax (dassie), klipspringer, Verreaux’s (Black) eagle and the Hartmann’s mountain zebra.

Seeheim to Sesriem

Sesriem is a small settlement located in the Namib Desert.  The name Sesriem means “six belts’ and was named by the Dorsland Trekkers, a group of Afrikaans speaking settlers.  It is said that they had to tie together 6 belts (made of oryx hide) to reach buckets down into the Sesriem Canyon to scoop up water. The Sesriem Canyon is a natural canyon carved in sedimentary rock.

Day9

Sesriem

An early departure will give you the opportunity to climb the majestic Dune 45 during the cooler time of the day. Dune 45 was named for its proximity to Sesriem gate before continuing to the entrance of Sossusvlei, a seemingly endless expanse of sand dunes.  Sand that was carried to the west coast by the Orange River is blown back again inland by winds and formed the dunes of the Namib Desert. The Namib, a minimum of 55 million years old, is regarded as the oldest desert in the world. The sand here is coloured red due to the high levels of iron oxide.  These dunes are known as star dunes, created by winds blowing from all directions and is also known as the highest sand dunes in the world.  In the afternoon, you will visit the Sesriem Canyon, a miniature canyon by world standards but beautiful to walk around in and appreciate the distinctive sedimentary rocks and conglomerate that line the canyon walls.

You’ll have the option to celebrate your last night and your new friendships at one of Windhoek’s famous restaurants. Book a day or two extra in Windhoek to make the most of your stay. This tiny capital town has loads of interesting things to offer.  One of the most famous is the display of 33 meteorites, the Gibeon Meteorites in the Post Street Mall. Here you can take pictures of and touch these extra-terrestrial bodies that are corrosive resistant due to the high amount of nickel in them. Shopping opportunities abound and for the historically inclined there are many museums and historical buildings within walking distance around the town centre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.
