SOSSUSVLEI & SESRIEM EXCURSION

Situated in the oldest desert in the world, Sossusvlei can truly be called the gem of the Namib. Sporting some of the highest dunes in the world, incredible scenery and amazing wildlife, this is a destination not to be missed. By prior arrangement we can take you to visit Sossusvlei. During your visit you can enjoy climbing the huge dunes and walking to Dead Vlei for breathtaking scenery. Brunch is served in the dunes to replenish you after your desert adventure. After Sossusvlei we can take you to Sesriem Canyon, which was one of the rare open sources of water in decades past. Be sure to take your camera as both these areas are spectacularly photogenic.

SOUTHERN WHITE RHINO PROJECT

Many years ago, we made a wonderful discovery on the neighboring farm Hammerstein. On a rock face not far from the homestead we found San Bushman rock art. These paintings may be thousands of years old and is a true archaeological gem. Beside their age and the fact that the ancient people where capable of making pigments which still last today, there is another mystery from them, in that they clearly depict rhinos, which must have occurred in our valley naturally. We have thus started the long process of re-establishing these magnificent beasts in the South of Namibia. When visiting us, you can go see these wonderful gentle giants, becoming rarer and rarer in nature every day.

NATURE DRIVE

The nature drive is either early mornings or late afternoons when the chances of game sightings are best, as daytime temperatures can get very hot. Although our guides take all effort to see as many animals as possible, we cannot guarantee how many of the game species you will be privileged enough to see. Possible species include; southern white rhino, giraffe, springbok, oryx, mountain zebra, ostrich, lechwe, eland and gnu. We have also started with nocturnal night drives to see some of the more obscure denizens of the desert. Nature remains our most unpredictable joy! Please contact us for more information and rates.

SUNDOWNERS

Enjoy a couple of drinks as the sun goes down to experience the magnificent African sunsets. We will drive you to a sundowner vista to bring your fun filled day to a relaxing end. Please contact us for more information and rates.

SCENIC FLIGHTS

A great way to take in the amazing scenery is to take a scenic flight in a light aircraft. Flights are available on request and need to be arranged well in advance. There is a dirt airstrip on Hammerstein to facilitate these flights. Please contact us for more information and rates.

4 X 4 TRAILS

Join us for an exciting off-road 4×4 experience. We’ll take you off-roading up one of the nearby mountains where you can enjoy the un-equivalent panorama views of the Namib Desert. Please contact us for more information and rates.
