Day trips into the Namib - Sossusvlei

Post by biggles »

I am taking the Storm trooper and the caravan from Otjiwarongo back home to Cape Town on the 17th May and I already had to opt out of a 14 th May Faces of the Namib tour due to possible work commitments. I am DYING to get the Stormtrooper into the Namib desert :blonde: .

Is anyone aware of a day trip dune driving somewhere around the Eastern edge of the desert. I am not keen on driving all the way to Luderitz to do that.
