Fish River Canyon
Day 3 to Day 4
This morning we leave for the second largest canyon in the world! You will take the road slowly and arrive in the early afternoon in this surreal setting. The Fish River Canyon is the largest on the African continent and the hidden treasure of the continent as it is still not very popular with tourists, despite its "wow" landscapes!
A sublime lodge on the edge of the Canyon
Your room will overlook the huge rocky gorge for an unforgettable experience! You'll have plenty of time to get down to the river where your guide will explain all the wonders of the area.

Day 5 to Day 6
Heading north for 300 kms towards Aus and Lüderitz, for a two-day stage. North of the town there are still wild horses, the Feral Horses, estimated to number 200 and which have managed to adapt to the difficult conditions in this part of the world. We also recommend a visit to the amazing village of Kolmanskop. A former mining village, Kolkmanskop is now a ghost town that you can visit during the day.
Your night on a horse ranch
Suites facing the desert to admire the warm colours of the sunset and the horses in the distance! Simple ranch life in the heart of nature

Day 9 to Day 10
Return to "civilisation" to discover the immense dunes of Sossusvlei. Located in Africa's most important conservation area, Sossusvlei is certainly one of the highlights of this trip. The dunes in this area are among the highest in the world, some reaching over 400 metres in height, an inspiration beyond measure for amateur photographers.
Your top-of-the-range night
And since after two days of trekking in the desert a little comfort is welcome, we suggest you stay in a high standard lodge a few minutes from the entrance of the reserve.
We like: the feeling of living a new experience.
