Luderitz to Walvis Bay 4x4 Adventure


We are proud to offer a unique 4x4 adventure trip through the worlds oldest desert, being one of only 7 remote wilderness areas left on our planet. We travel through the Namib between Luderitz and Walvis Bay formerly known as “Diamond Area no 2”.

Places visited on the way include Silvia Hill, Meob Bay, Conception Bay & Sandwich Bay. Desert wildlife, spectacular scenery, untouched beaches, abandoned mining settlements, miles of sand driving and shipwrecks are some of the attractions along the way.


The Itinerary

The 4x4 Adventure starts in Luderitz where the group assembles at 18h30/19h00 the evening before (at a venue conveyed to you beforehand) for dinner and briefing before venturing into the Namib desert the next day. (Participants have to organise their own accommodation in Luderitz).

Day 1:
After backtracking for about 30km on the Luderitz to Aus main road, it is time to say goodbye to tar roads, starting an adventure of a lifetime. On day one we pass the ‘stompneus’ Ford and camp close to ‘Suzy’ lorry.

Day 2:
On the second day the trail leads north past ‘Suzy’ and the Bulldozer, before crossing into the dune belt on way to Sylvia Hill. For the next couple of days participants will experience ‘camping under the desert sky’ in true expedition style.

Day 3:
Dunes are getting progressively higher and driver experience and skills acquired during the previous 2 days will be tested and honed to perfection. Camping on the beach.

Day 4:
The dune belt opens up at Meob bay and it is in this stretch between Meob Bay and Conception Bay that where active diamond mining was in the order of the day during the early 1900’s. The Settlements of Holsatia, Charlottenfelder and Grillenberger are visited on the way.

Day 5:
From Holsatia the trail leads to Conception Bay and along the beach northwards towards Sandwich Bay. On route the wrecks of the ‘Eduard Bohlen’ & ‘Shawnee’ are visited.

Passing ‘Langewand’ where massive dunes end in the sea, given a very limited time span to negotiate this stretch of beach. After ‘Langewand’ the trail once again leads into the dunes, circumnavigating the Salt Pans ‘extensions’ of Sandwich Harbour. The dunes are still getting progressively larger to offer an ever changing new experience of ultimate dune driving. The night is spend approximately 1.5km from the sea.



Day 6:
From Sandwich the trails enters the ‘Roller Coaster’, a series of massive ‘roaring’ slip faces, not only giving the participants a new thrilling experience but also offering breathtaking views of Sandwich Harbour and a panorama of Sandscapes exiting onto the beach south of Walvis Bay. The trail ends at Walvis Bay after a final 50km stretch of beach driving.

Total distance to be covered: +/- 630km
