Sunsets at Sesriem

Today you will travel to Namib Desert, where you will spend the next 2 nights in Sesriem camp. From here you can explore Sossuvslei, Dune 45 and Sesriem Canyon at your own pace

At the entry to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1 km in length.  At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down to 30 to 40 metres, are pools that become replenished after good rains. Sesriem derives its name from the time when earlier pioneers tied six lengths of rawhide thongs (riem) together to draw water from the pools.  Explore the Sesriem Canyon from this great and scenic campsite.

The camp has 44 sites and is equipped with a shp, bar, restaurant and fuel station

Deeper into the wild and connect with real Himba tribes.

The next 3 nights, your real remote adventure will start as you slowly go off the grid.  You will spend your nights in community campsites in the Kunene region. As these are community operated camps it is not always possible to get in contact and make advance booking, so these 3 nights are not included, but our team can still try and book this in advance and you can then pay upon arrival

Head to Purros where you will spend the night in Purros community campsite 

Explore the Purros traditional village located approximately 10 kilometers from the village. This  is a very popular way to experience Himba culture.

This is a truly remote road with alot of river bed crossings, mountain pasases (VanZyls and Rooidrom to name a few), so when this trip is planned with us, your best options will be discussed with you and community campsites will be recommended to you. But basically from Purros you will head through Orupembe conservancy where you overnight and then onwards to Marienfluss Valley on the Angolan border post. We can connect you with local guides to take you to a himba village. We encourage that you sleep at community campsites, to support the locals as opposed to wild camping.
