Day Trips

To fill your days spent with us with epic memories you can embark on one of our daytrips.

From daring mountain trails either on foot or with mountain bikes overseen by Klipspringer and Mountain Zebra or exploring the unusual beauty of the magnificent Namib Desert, Namib Coastline and Etosha National Park, you will be entertained!

Or being witness to an African sunset on a scenic drive through the wilderness in the hope of encountering a white rhino…

Day Trip

These are but some of the glorious adventures you can partake in with Daosa Africa.

Sossusvlei Area (Desert Hills and We Kebi Safari Lodge)

Sossusvlei trips (Service provided by Daosa)

  • Enjoy the magnificence of the Namib dunes in all their splendour. The day starts early, as the desert sun quickly heats the sand. Once inside the park, it is another hour drive to the actual vlei (Afrikaans word for a ‘marsh’). Here you can climb the monstrous Big Daddy dune, see the ancient Deadvlei and have a refresher with our lunchpacks under the massive old camel thorn trees. You can round of your day with a quick visit to Sesriem Canyon, and if you are lucky, even have a swim in its cool waters.

There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.

- Robert Louis Stevenson

Everything in Africa bites, but the safari bug is worst of all.

- Brian Jackman

The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa — for he has so much to look forward to.

- Richard Mullin

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.

- T.S Eliot

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.

- Terry Pratchet

Nothing ventured, nothing gained. And venture belongs to the adventurous.

- Navjot Singh Sidhu

Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.

- Lovelle Drachman

Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.

- Unknown

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!”

- Hunter S. Thompson

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

- W.M. Lewis

Swakopmund Area (Ocean House Guesthouse)

Sandwich harbour trips (Service provided by external contractors)

  • Spend the day along the beautiful coastline South of Walvis Bay into the protected area known as ‘Sandwich Harbour’. The trip is very scenic, but also delivers a rush of adrenalin as your driver charges up the massive sand dunes with specialized vehicles. A light lunch with oysters and sparkling wine is normally served at the harbour lookout point.

Boat trips and Mola Mola tours

  • Take a boat trip, normally from Walvis Bay Harbour, and experience the desert from a different perspective. Guests also regularly get visited by seals and pelicans, keep an eye out for dolphins, and occasionally guests have the pleasure of seeing the elusive sun fish or mola mola.

Fishing along the coast

  • Go with a trained and kitted angler to try your luck at pulling in ‘a big one’. The Namibian coastline is very well known for its good fishing all year round.
