DAY 2 NAMIB DESERT
Enjoy early morning coffee and tea before departing for Sossusvlei, a fascinating world of ecology and unearthly geography. The route travels along the Tsauchab dry riverbed, which has found a way through the dunes until it reaches the vivid white clay saltpan, called Sossusvlei. After a good rainy season, approximately every 7-10 years, the Tsauchab River runs in full flood and fills the Vlei with water, offering sensational scenery with prolific birdlife. The early morning sun offers spectacular pastel colours in the star-shaped dunes. The first stop will be at Dune 45 before continuing to Sossusvlei. Climb one of the dunes - there are plenty - and you might be overwhelmed by the sight of the dynamic and living desert! Breakfast will be served as a picnic under one of the shady camel thorn trees. Afterwards, walk over patches of dunes until you reach the base of the 'Dead Vlei', another pan where water once flowed, but all that remains today are the skeletons of trees. Visit the rugged Sesriem Canyon before returning to the lodge for lunch. In the afternoon join a guided nature drive to the 'marble mountain' (drinks for own account) or relax on your veranda and enjoy a spectacular sunset. [Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner]
