    Sesriem Camp

    September 7, 2017 in Namibia

    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

    Dag 16 - Sesriem en Sossusvlei

    May 19, 2017 in Namibia

    Die woestyn roep vandag en teen 7.30 vm. Namibiese tyd staan ons saam met 30 ander karre en wag vir die parkhekke om oop te gaan. Ons ry verby Duin 45, en mik reguit vir Sossusvlei, waar ons parkeer en begin stap na Dooievlei. Toast en toerlid Jaco Peens klim die massiewe Big Daddy-duin uit - harde werk, maar die uitsig maak dit die moeite werd! Die weer speel saam en dit raak eers teen 12-uur se kant warm. Hierna ry ons terug na ons staanplek by Sossus Oasis - party dut, ander swem. Laatmiddag draai ons in die dieptes van Sesriem-canyon terwyl Rey, Jarra en Pikkie aandete maak: hoenderschnitzel met sampioensous, aartappelslaai én apfelstrudel a la Pikkie. 'n Jakkals sluip hier buite rond, 'n blafgeitjie blaf. 'n Goeie, goeie dag.Read more
