Day trip Sossusvlei
  Day trip to Sossusvlei via Sesriem Canyon and Duwisib
From the hotel we offer guided day tours to Sossusvlei via Sesriem Canyon and Duwisib Castle with picnic lunch en route.
Duwisib Castle was constructed in 1908 by eccentric Hansheinrich von Wolf, and his American wife Jayta. Surrounded by lawn and trees in the midest of a dry savanna landscape, this medieval castle is one of the more peculiar sights in Namibia and has been preserved relatively well.
  The Sossusvlei, Namibia`s famous highlight in the heart of the Namib Desert, is a huge clay pan, enclosed by giant sand dunes. Some of the spectacular hills of sand are, at a height of 300 metres, the highest in the world. Only after heavy rainfall, which is a rare event in this area, does the vlei fill with water. As the clay layers hardly allow any water infiltration, a turquoise lake will remain for quite some time.
Sesriem Canyon, an impressive gorge of about 1 km in length, is also in the vicinity of Sesriem. The Tsauchab river, which takes its source in the Naukluft Mountains, carved this 30 metres deep fault into rock agglomerates.
Early explorers had to tie six lengths of thongs together to draw water from the pools in the canyon, hence the name "Sesriem".

Furthermore we offer day excursions, on short notice, to one of the many surrounding guest farms, scenic flights over the Fish River Canyon and much more. For more information, please contact us.
