Sesriem

Sesriem
Sesriem is a small settlement located in the Namib Desert, in Namibia, close to the southern end of the Naukluft Mountains. Take a break from the city and head to Namib-Naukluft National Park and Kuiseb River. Explore hidden gems such as Hidden Vlei and Elim Dunes. Change things up with these side-trips from Sesriem: Sossusvlei (in Namib-Naukluft Park) and Big Daddy Dune (in Sossusvlei). There's still lots to do: explore the stunning scenery at Sesriem Canyon and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

Located in the heart of the country, Namibia's capital city Windhoek receives a constant influx of tourists, in part because of its international airport.

There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Deadvlei, wander the wide-open spaces of Okapuka Ranch, learn more about the world around you at Geological Survey Museum, and brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Naute Kristall Cellar and Destillery.
