    Namib Desert

    April 17, 2018 in Namibia ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    Our next stop was the Namib Desert and definitely the hottest place on our tour of Africa. We camped out in the desert and spent the next day exploring. Firstly we walked up 'dune 45' which is the 45th sand dune in the national park, and the only one they allow you to walk on. After spending nearly 6 weeks on a bus and barely doing exercise we found this much harder work than it should have been! Then we walked in the dead valley. There used to be water there until the sand dunes cut off the supply and this left all the trees in a fossilized state. It was nice to see but I was pleased when we were able to move on and leave the heat behind.
    The next day we visited the Fish River Canyon which is the second biggest canyon in the world and the biggest in Africa, we watched the sunset here and then continued our journey to South Africa.
