Breakfast amongst the sandy giants of Sossusvlei, and if you are truly daring, climb Big Daddy! Make sure to ware closed shoes, and if you plan to climb, do so as early as possible, as the desert sand can become scorching hot in minutes. You can also take the short walk to the famous Deadvlei for some spectacularly serene and abstract photo opportunities. On your way out, stop at Sesriem canyon, and go for a rock pool swim to cool from the blistering sun above.
Go on a two-to-three-hour drive with our guides. Wonder at the strange creatures, vast landscapes and endless skies. Drinks are supplied on the drive, best times are early morning and afternoons.
Available at both We Kebi Safari Lodge and Desert Hills Lodge, you can experience a mix of our homemade produce paired with the best South Africa has to offer in wines.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
Oh, the places you’ll go.
Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.
Jobs fill your pockets, but adventures fill your soul.
Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving.
There’s only one place I want to go, and it’s to all the places I’ve never been to.
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
I travel because I become uncomfortable being too comfortable.
Take a trip into the desert to see the small five with experienced guides, drive to sandwich harbour on a road less travelled, with its desert mysteries, or climb on the back of a camel and let the Bedouin in you lose! The guided drives take a full day, while camel rides are about an hour, there are also options for fatbike desert trips, or quad-bike tours.
Departing from the Mole in Swakopmund, boat trips generally stay within view of the coast. You can request either a scenic trip or experience some Atlantic boat fishing with our experienced skipper. Boat trips generally last about three hours, but it does depend on the weather. Take jackets, as the wind on the Atlantic can get very cold.
