Once satisfied we descend this famous dune and enjoy a hearty breakfast before catching a 4×4 transfer into Sossusvlei, here we will spend time on foot visiting the pans at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei.

We make our way to the coastal town of Swakopmund, where adventure and a dose of civilisation await.

Dinner overnight at Island safari lodge | Mokoro lodge | Thamalakane hotel. FB 3**

Day 17: Nata
