LUDERITZ – WALVISBAY

34,000km2  of sand dunes lie stretched out amidst the world’s oldest desert, ready to be driven.

Strict Government control and limited number of permits allows for a nearly exclusive experience.

Imagine a complete submersion in nature, six days of wild camping and dune bashing. A wilderness unlike any other and a complete digital detox.

The Namib Sand Sea is our favourite playground and heaven for avid off-roaders, only accessible by capable four-wheel-drive vehicles. The route is designed to be progressive and even though prior experience in sand driving would assist, absolutely no experience is required.

Our guides are experienced and knowledgeable about most vehicles on the market, their capabilities and how to help clients improve their overall 4×4 driving skills.
Each night’s wild camping will depend on the convoy’s progress for the day. There is no predetermined wild camping location.
