November-December 2017 Our wonderful tour of northwestern Namibia is a chance to discover exceptional private reserves and a rarely-visited stretch of the vast Skeleton Coast National Park with its remote Atlantic coastline. We encounter breathtaking scenery and geology ; the work of conservationists with some of the world’s most endangered species, such as the black rhino; wildlife*, including giraffes and elephants, adapted to a desert environment; fascinating flora of desert and savannah; and ancient rock art created by inhabitants of the region thousands of years ago. Travel is in a small group of up to 10 people led by Susan Worner,...
From the Canyon we head into the Namib desert, where we encounter enormous sand dunes created by the strong westerly winds. Their colours at day-break are a photographer's dream. Some of our group ascend the ridge of the 'Big Daddy' dune for a spectacular view from the heights. In Dead Vlei nearby we find ancient camelthorn trees (Acacia erioloba). An al fresco brunch in the shade of a huge tree is truly welcome, and later on we opt to spend the night outdoors as well, sleeping under the star-spangled sky. What an experience ! The tour is full of contrasts and our next destination is a guest farm high up in the mountains near the Gamsberg. Keen star-gazers appreciate the clarity of the sky here, at an altitude of over 2000m, and we enjoy the planetary walk and sundowner with amazing views. Next day, we start early with an energetic botanical walk to discover the variety of plants growing in the harsh environment, including a stunning coral tree (Erythrina decora) in bloom in the dry riverbed.
