Flashback: On the way between Sossusvlei and Walvis Bay during our trip in Namibia, a colorful sign marks the crossing of the Tropic of Capricorn. One of the five major circles of latitude, the Tropic of Capricorn is the southernmost latitude where the sun can shine from directly overhead.

Your Castle in the Namib ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When compiling an itinerary for Namibia I normally suggest beginning your adventure in the Namib. This stark, almost mysterious landscape offers so much contrast to our normal environment, that it is awe-inspiring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As unique, beautiful and exciting as the landscape is, The Le Mirage Resort & Spa too offers such a contrast, and almost makes the adventure more surreal. Your castle in the desert becomes your haven in the vast Namib. The thick rock walls of the castle keep your room nice and cool and protect you from the harsh desert outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This highly rated lodge provides the perfect base from which to explore this vast region and to enjoy the many activities or simply to relax and unwind in their glorious spa after a day exploring. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and the restaurant serves up some fabulous cuisine. But it’s the staff that make a stay at Le Mirage so memorable, they are fabulous. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Location wise, Le Mirage is one of the closest lodges to the Sossusvlei area, one of Namibia’s main attractions. The area offers so much to explore. Climb Dune 45, affectionately known as the ‘Big Daddy’, one of the highest dunes in the world, so named as it is 45 kilometres from the Sesreim gate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Discover Dead Vlei, probably one of the most magical places in the world. This pan used the be a lake that dried out hundreds of years ago. The spectacular Sesriem Canyon was carved out by the Tsauchab rivier. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For the adventurous at heart a guided Quad-Bike tour is amazing as you traverse the amazing nature that surrounds this unique lodge. The lodge also offers an open 4×4 tour into the stunning Namib Desert to discover its secrets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, there is one experience that I would suggest you have to include on your 'to do' list when in the Namib: Hot Air Ballooning. Gliding over the world’s oldest desert at sunrise, taking in this awesome scenery, must be one of the most wonderful experiences in the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @lemiragenamibia
