      After breakfast, we’ll visit Sesriem Canyon, a deep chasm carved through the rocks by water.

      The canyon’s name was coined when early settlers used it as a water source, using six lengths of leather (‘ses riem – six thongs) tied together to lower buckets into the water at the base of canyon.

      Back in Windhoek, we’ll check into our gorgeous accommodation for the evening. Now, this is not just an ordinary lodge, this lodge has resident giraffes who love to hang out, especially whilst we’re enjoying our afternoon tea and cakes.

      “I can’t recommend it enough.

      I loved the people and the dunes. I’ve never seen landscapes like this in my life. Climbing Big Daddy and Dune 45 is one of the most humbling experiences I’ve had. There is no place in the world that is like Namibia. I can’t recommend it enough.”


      Tanzania Group Tour

      The trip exceeded my expectations.

      The Rock my Namibia tour was everything I hoped for. It was a very good mix of cultural and natural environment, with excellent social activities as well as available free time. The trip exceeded my expectations. The guides where fantastic.
