Madagascar & Namibia 2019 travel blog








Up early to make the Sossusvlei dunes for sunrise, however the national park didn't open it's gates until 7.45am (well after sunrise). First stop was at "Dune 45", one of the largest sand dunes, which can be climbed - I only made it part way. Then onto Deadvlei, a claypan with dead trees that have not decomposed due to the climate (the trees are a couple of thousand years old)). This claypan is overlooked by "Big Daddy", one of the largest dunes in the world at approx 350m. Final stop of the day was at Sesriem Gorge. The people of the area used to pull up water from the canyon using six belts knotted together (Sesriem means six belts in Afrikaans)
