    Sesriem Camp

    September 7, 2017 in Namibia ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    On the way to our camp at Sesriem we passed through only one very small settlement called Solitaire. It oddly had a collection of old used cars, great for photo opportunities. Past Sesriem we continued on to Sossusvlei where we went on a very hot, ruggid 5km midday walk across the dunes to get to Dead Vlei, a large ephemeral pan set amongst 200m red sand dunes. The tress have died many years ago from too much clay in the sand but will never really rot because of the dry climate. It was quite a site to see amongst the red dunes. After camp was set up we went to Sesriem Canyon to see the sun set, so after a walk through it we set on top of the truck for sun downers over looking the canyon.Read more
