Sossusvlei & Zambezi Queen River Cruise Tour - 7 Days

On this tourת, you will visit the spectacular tall red sand dunes in the world in the Namib Desert in an area of Sossusvlei. This area is characterized by high sand dunes of vivid pink-to-orange color, an indication of a high concentration of iron in the sand and consequent oxidation processes. The oldest dunes are those of a more intense reddish color. These dunes are among the highest in the world; many of them are above 200 meters.

DAY 1

Namib Desert Sesriem

This is the oldest desert on earth formed some 5 million years ago, a breath-taking sea of sand and dunes that can reach up to 220 meters high. Due to early morning fog from the coast, this arid place is home to a surprising array of creatures which benefit from the moisture.

Colin & Ann McWilliams, Ireland

Hi, we would like to say a big thank you to Pendy Masule for guiding us in our recent trip to Namibia. Namibia far exceeded our expectations in the variety of landscapes, flora and fauna. Our experience was superbly enhanced with Pendy's vast knowledge of his own country explaining its origins through to today. His ability to know when to share his knowledge and his keen sense of fun allowed us to develop a true friendship which will endure. The trip was a fantastic taste to discover some of Namibia highlights and whet our appetite for future return trips. Read more
