Travel from Windhoek across the rolling hills of the Khomashochland at an altitude of more than 2000 meters above sea level, down the Gamsberg Pass into the Namib, which is the oldest desert in the world. The landscape varies from rugged mountains and rocky outcrops to sand-filled valleys and endless vistas of plains. After a short rest with lunch packs, proceed through the Namib-Naukluft Park, where, with a bit of luck, one can see ostriches, springbok,
Oryx and mountain zebras. Then on to the Welwitschia Plain, where the Welwitschia plant, a living fossil, that is only found in the Namib and southern Angola, occurs in large numbers.
After breakfast, depart to Walvis Bay for a boat-/catamaran cruise with champagne, fresh oysters and snacks on board. Return to Swakopmund. In the afternoon city tour through Swakopmund and rest of the day at leisure.
