Sossusvlei is one of the main attractions of Namibia. Along the way you will see some of the worlds highest dunes, some petrified dunes and the Sesriem Canyon. Drive on your own or join a guided drive from the Lodge.
Only a few kilometers before the end of the road you will find Dune 45, one of the more accessible dunes in Sossuvlei. You are free to climb this dune; it is not an easy task but the view from the top will make it worth your while. Don’t forget to wear closed shoes and take enough water before commencing this journey.
Once you’ve arrived at the end of the tarred road you can only continue with a 4×4. This 5km 4×4 route is real fun to drive yourself, just follow the tracks of the other cars, this will take you to the Dead Vlei parking.
From there you walk about 1.1 km over the dunes to reach Dead Vlei which is one of the most magical places in the world. This pan used the be a lake that dried out hundreds of years ago. Take enough water and try to do this early morning or late afternoon as temperatures peak around midday.
Hot Air Ballooning
This adventure begins early in the morning, before sunrise, you are collected from Le Mirage and driven to the take-off area. Once the balloon is airborne you drift silently over the dunes for about an hour. The views of the Namib Desert are exceptional. On landing (wherever the wind has taken you) there is a champagne breakfast.
After the champagne breakfast you will be brought back to the lodge.
