Day 2

We leave early in the morning, just before sunrise for Sossusvlei.

We start off by climbing Dune 45, this is a must-do and we recommend this to everyone. After Dune 45 it is off to the surreal Dead Vlei, a place of vast desert pan where dried-up, ancient acacias stand silent in the open-air gallery.

If you are up for it, you can take on climbing one of the highest dunes on Earth, the “Big Daddy”’. Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei are considered to be one of the most photogenic and some of the most photographed places on Earth and make for beautiful memories! We also visit the fascinating rock formation of the Sesriem Canyon and in the late afternoon we finish off with climbing Dune Elim.

Be on the lookout, you may just see the occasional wildlife: ostriches, Oryx, bat-eared foxes, springboks, possibly cheetah and various birds inhabiting the desert.

Optional activity in the afternoon: Hot Air Ballooning.
