Day 3

Sossusvlei

We will start very early this morning to catch the beautiful sunrise in Sossusvlei, and to avoid the most heat. Morning excursion into Sossusvlei & Deadvlei where you have the option of climbing the world’s highest sand dune, or simply stroll around the breathtaking Deadvlei area.

The highest dune being Big Daddy at 325 meters is the most accessible but toughest to take on. The reward however is a panoramic view of the Dead Vlei with the 900-year-old Camelthorn trees.  The contrasts of the shadows on the dunes, the clear blue sky and blackened dead trees against the orange dunes is a must see when visiting Namibia.
