Your tailor-made holiday to Namibia

HZK_Activities_Beach Quad biking Swakopmund Sitting on the dunes of Sossusvlei by Olwen Evans

This succinct self-drive itinerary packs plenty of punch, covering two of Namibia's most iconic experiences and landscapes.

After a night in Windhoek to recover from your flight and acquaint yourself with the country, it's time to explore the historic and charming town of Swakopmund with its gorgeous beaches, vibrant street life, quaint architecture, shopping and fine dining. Activities in the surrounding area are excellent. Explore the dunes of the Namib Desert on quad bike, sand boarding or by horseback. Take to the air with parasailing or brave the waves in a sea kayak.

Follow this, with 3 days enjoying the wonders of Sossusvlei, famous for its huge red dunes, some of the highest in the world. A photographer's dream, the area is explorable from the air with hot air balloon rides as well as with quad bikes and game drives on the ground. Attractions include Sesriem Canyon, Hiddenvlei, Big Daddy and Deadvlei. A highlight is climbing Climb Dune 45 to watch the sun rise over the Namib desert.
