Namibian Desert and Dunes

12-day Adventure through Namibia’s Spectacular Landscapes and South Africa’s West Coast

Windhoek – Erindi – Etosha – Spitzkoppe – Hentiesbaai – Swakopmund – Sesriem – Aus – Fish River Canyon – Orange River – Nieuwoudville – Cape Town


The 12-day Namibian Wilderness Adventure is geared for those who prefer a shorter trip, are capable on gravel roads and would like to explore more of Namibia. Our exact route is flexible and we can cater for your preferences. The default route begins in Windhoek, heads north to Etosha and then routes south through the western Namibian desert regions towards the Fish River Canyon, Orange River and the Northern Cape to Cape Town. The road surface mix is about 60% gravel roads – most of these are flat, smooth Namibian ‘C’ roads, others have some washboard or corrugated patches and some light sand.
