Sossusvlei - Guided Tour - is it worth it?

Jump to last reply

Would be grateful for some advice from the Namibia experts on the board.

We're staying for a couple of nights at Sossusvlei Lodge (Sesriem) as part of the honeymoon and are obviously going to do the trip into Sossusvlei. I'm trying to decide whether it's worth driving ourselves to the 2wd car park then catching the shiuttle 4wd in and exploring ourselves. (with the obvious advantage of going at our own pace and being more alone) or whether to go with a guided tour (probably from Sossusvlei Lodge) which will obviously be less hassle, more expensive and i assume be a lot of people (we're there at the end of september).

Does anyone have experience of the 'logisitics' side of these tours? Do you feel like you're on a coach trip? (yuk!)

I've also noticed some tours go up 'Big Daddy' dune, others 'Dune 45'. does anyone think there's a difference? I know we'll obviously get a lot from the guide about the place but i don't really fancy traipsing up a dune with 50 other people!

Thanks in advance!

Andrew
