Namibia Desert & Cheetah Safari

By David Tett | Jul 03



Explore the dunes of Sossusvlei and the awesome space of the Namib Desert, counted as the oldest desert in the world. Sossusvlei is Namibia's famous highlight in the heart of the Namib Desert. Some of the spectacular hills of sand are, at a height of 300 metres, the highest in the world.

About Our Namibia Desert & Cheetah Safari

Only after a heavy rainfall, which is a rare event in the Namib Desert, does the vlei fill with water. As the clay layers hardly allow any water infiltration, a turquoise lake will remain for quite some time. Wildlife here is fascinating in its adaptation to the harsh conditions. Guests are thrilled to see springbok, gemsbok, ostrich, bat-eared fox, the rarely seen aardwolf and many small fauna.
