Namibia is a country of compelling beauty, abundant sunshine and unconfined space. The wide horizons, clear unpolluted skies and a population density which is among the lowest in the world, generate a sense of freedom. This feeling of tranquillity and stillness complements a landscape which is singular in its colours, full of contrasts of light and shade.

The Dune Adventure offers a unique opportunity to experience the harsh realities of the desert landscapes as well as extraordinary natural phenomena which have resulted from millions of years of erosion and volcanic activity.
