Day1

Windhoek

Explore Windhoek during the day and meet your group and your Tour Leader in the evening at 18:00 to get acquainted and review your trip details. Windhoek is a tiny capital town but with 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 towncentre. One of the most widely photographed and a historical landmark is the Christ Church, a Lutheran church, built in the Gothic revival style.

Day2

Windhoek 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 the sedimentary rock.

Day3

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.

Sesriem to Seeheim

On the way to Seeheim, you will pass the small towns of Bethanien and Helmeringhausen and a farm settlement here and there, but other than that it will mostly just be the wide-open Namibian landscape with spectacular scenery. In the early 20th century the sole purpose of this small town was that of a junction station between Keetmanshoop, Lüderitz and Karasburg. This rustic oasis in the desert built from stone is where you will be spending your last night under the Namibian starlit sky.

The park comprises an area of over 3.6 million hectares – one of very few conservation areas of this magnitude left in the world.

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 metres 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.

The 17th Century and beyond, San and Khoi guides have exposed colonial travellers to this refuge, their names still cover the cave walls. Originally the cave was used by the indigenous San Bushmen and Khoi people. It was discovered again in 1685 by Simon Van der Stel and his party on his way north in search of copper in 1685. We journey further through South Africa’s Western Cape Region. Overnight close to the V&A Waterfront, where you will have easy access to the wide variety of activities and attractions offered by this culturally rich and historic city.

Cape of Good Hope is part of the Cape Floristic Floral Kingdom, the smallest of the six recognized floral kingdoms in the world. Despite being the smallest, it is regarded as the richest, mostly made up with Fynbos, the hard-stemmed and fine-leaved plants indigenous to the southwestern corner of South Africa. Little wonder the Cape Floral Region Protected Areas was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2004. The elegant Protea flower is probably the most famous of all fynbos species and the emblem of the national cricket team.
