day

On arrival at Windhoek Airport, you will be met and assisted to the collection location of your luxury, fully equipped 4x4. After an indepth overview of the vehicle, showing you how you set-up the tents, and taken them down again, and instructions on how to handle the 4x4, the rest of the day is at your leisure to do some last minute shopping before your adventure starts

Make your way south this morning, to the famous Sossusvlei, where you will be spending the next two nights. There are a couple of routes to take, and we recommend the one that goes via the Spreetshoogte Pass. While it's not for the faint-hearted, it's a good way for you to get to grips with your 4x4 vehicle.

You will also pass through the settlement of Solitaire, which is known for its Apple Pie, so be sure to stop for a bite.

Depending on your arrival time at the camp, you can join one of the many optional activities offered by the adventure centre. These include quad-biking, nature drives, sun-downer trips, nature walks and bush dinners, to name a few.

Overnight at Oasis Sossus Camp Site.

To beat the heat, this morning is an early start. You will travel the distance in a URI Gameviewer vehicle, which has been custom built for the camp. You will have a specially trained guide, who will share his knowledge of the area, animals and plant life with you. There are stops along the way as you will be driving through a dune corridor, which also happens to be home to one of the most photographed dunes - Dune 45. There is a visit to Dead Vlei, any photographers dream, and for the healthy, an optional climb to the top of Big Daddy, which is the highest dune in the area. The last stop, before making your way back to the lodge, is the world famous Sossusvlei. 

Once back at the lodge, the rest of the day is at your leisure.
