Forbidden Land tour
Minimum of 15
persons in a maximum of 10 vehicles*
We set off into the Namib Desert and have a full day of dune driving until we reach "Blue Mountain", a hill in the dunes where we set up camp.
After a good breakfast we start the serious coastal belt dunes where 20km will take us ca. 5 hours. There we will meet the Atlantic Ocean and set up camp 100m away from the sea in a place called "Skeleton Bay".
We now visit Spencer Bay and Saddle Hill which involves a lot of beach driving and spectacular scenery. We set up camp at "Bay View" in the dunes.
Now we travel away from the sea through a place called "Devils Workshop". This is the coastal dune belt with towering dunes and takes some serious driving. There we pick one of the dune streets and travel past Koichab Pan which is a photographers paradise until we reach the tarred road. From here it is back to Luderitz.
