Pick-up & Drop-off

All clients residing in Swakopmund are collected from their accommodation and transported back there upon their return.


Your Sossusvlei Excursion departs from Swakopmund first thing in the morning. After a 1-hour flight, we arrive at Sossusvlei Lodge where your vehicle will await you, to take you on your excursion.

The drive to Sesriem Gate takes approximately 1 hour and a choice of breakfast in the sand dunes is an optional extra. The first stop on your dxcursion will be Dune 45, which is named after a 45 km long road connecting Sesriem Gate and Sossusvlei.

Next on your itinerary is the Big Daddy Dune, standing at a mammoth 325 meters.  It’s one of the highest sand dunes in the world. The Petrified Dunes are next and got their name from a billion-year-old sand dune that solidified and formed rock formations in the dunes.

Finally, we venture towards the Deadvlei and Sossusvlei. Deadvlei is roughly 2 kms from Sossusvlei and was once an Oasis, covered with Acacia trees that died after the Tsauchab river, the main water source of the trees, changed its course.

Sossusvlei is now where the river ends and it being a dry riverbed, flooding of Sossusvlei is a very rare occasion indeed.

Arriving back at Sossusvlei Lodge a scrumptious buffet lunch will be served, after which we depart from the Sossusvlei Airstrip to take a coastal scenic flight back to Swakopmund.
