Namib Naukluft National Park -Sossus On Foot Camp, Namibia
We head off for an early hike this morning, all the way to the top of the breathtaking Dune 45, where we have the exquisite opportunity of watching the African sun rise slowly across this vast desert. Brace yourself for this trek, as the dune is 300m high! After a filling breakfast to regain your strength, we venture further into the park for a shuttle ride and nature walk to Dead Vlei. As the sun continues to rise the dunes change colour before your eyes, allowing for striking photographic opportunities. Later, we make a stop at Sesriem Canyon. After a day well-spent among the dunes we head back to Solitaire, where we spend the evening relaxing.
