Rail Safaris In Namibia

WINDHOEK TO SWAKOPMUND
overnight from capital to coast...

Windhoek ·   Okapuka Game Ranch   ·    Namib desert   ·    Swakopmund

The ideal journey to combine with your safari to Namibia or an add-on to your selfdrive safari in Namibia. It is a great way to end your visit to this diverse and beautiful country.

Namibia is renowned for its wide, open spaces and superb sunrises and sunsets. The timetable has been specifically designed to coincide with the sunrises and sunsets. Desert Express departs in the early afternoon on Fridays and Tuesdays from Windhoek Station and calls at the luxurious Okapuka Game Ranch, where passengers will witness lion feeds close-up.

Upon returning to the train, enjoy a sundowner in the relaxed atmosphere of the elegant Spitzkoppe lounge as you watch the sun set over the endless plains. Dinner will be served in our spacious Welwitschia restaurant as the train makes its onward journey to overnight at a quiet secure siding.

Early the next morning, Desert Express leaves the siding and continues on its westbound journey. The train will travel through the Namib Desert and finally behind the dunes between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay, where it will stop for sixty minutes, to allow passengers to disembark and take a walk. The dunes are really unique! The train will then proceed on to its final destination, Swakopmund, arriving at approximately 10h00.
