    Today arrive at the Namib-Naukluft National Park and set up camp. Enjoy a short hike later in the afternoon to the Sesriem Canyon. Though not as big as the Fish River Canyon, the Sesriem is still quite impressive and you have the opportunity to wander down to the canyon floor. 

    After an early wake up, head to the massive sand dunes of Sossusvlei. Some of these immense attractions can reach up to 300m making them some of the highest dunes in the world. Climb Dune 45, and watch from the top as the sun rises turning the red sands to shades of orange and apricot.

    After a brief photo opportunity at the Tropic of Capricorn, travel through the moon-like valley of Kuiseb to the Atlantic coast and the town of Swakopmund. Sometimes there are flamingos in the lagoon at Walvis Bay, the town just before we arrive in Swakopmund.

    Spend the next two days exploring the Delta on foot for wildlife such as zebra, giraffe, and elephants, while bush camping in the wild at night. If the water levels are right, your guides may take you for a tour of the delta along the waterways. This is a unique way of getting to see the Delta and the wildlife. At night sit by the camp fire talking about your day as you listen to the sounds of the wild all around you.
