Solitaire in Southern Namibia as our adventure starts the next morning after
breakfast. Accommodation on this evening is for your own account and must be
booked well ahead of time as these are major tourism attractions and occupied
during season. Accommodation ranges from luxury lodges, guest farms and camp
sites, we can make recommendations if required.
We get going early after breakfast at 08h00 and head
10 km north of Sesriem to the farm better known as Elim and on arrival
immediately we thoroughly check our vehicles one last time and deflated our tires to 0.8 BAR, as the big dune challenges starts right away.

We are up early
again and ready for another two days of rising to this ultimate 4x4 challenge

this sea of sand until we reach the great Atlantic ocean, with amazing vistas
and serious relieve we have a well deserved refreshment as you have just
conquered one of the world’s most challenging terrains, a feat worth
celebrating. This route is truly a photographers and 4X4 enthusiasts dream. At
the end of day 3 we arrive at our beloved Namab Oasis, our desert camp on the
Day 4 :
We spend in leisure at our camp and guests can choose
from angling in one of Africa’s best fishing spots, tackle the dunes some more
or go explore some of the various abandoned mining camps or shipwrecks. Or
simply just soak up the sun while relaxing with a good book at camp. After an
exciting fishing day we like to spoil our guests with fresh fish prepared our
secret way for supper. Every afternoon we enjoy sundowners as we welcome in the
cool desert night and get cosy around the camp fire in our boma, sharing good
food, fireside adventures and nursing new friendships.
It is our last day and once again have an early start
with breakfast at 7am and ready to depart at 9am. We bid farewell to our
“desert oasis home away from home” and start a 6 hour drive up the coast where
you will see various attractions like the greater Meob Bay, shipwrecks, plenty
of cape fur seals and jackal.
