Sossus On Foot Camp – Sesriem – Fish River Canyon, Namibia
We will wake before dawn for one of the highlights of the tour, climbing up Dune 45 to watch the rising sun. We travel deeper into the park after a well earner breakfast and enjoy a shuttle ride and nature walk to the ‘Dead Vlei’ – a real glimpse of the unspoiled environment in Namibia and briefly stopping at the Sesriem Canyon, a photo opportunity you do not want to miss. Our camp this evening is nestled between the rocky granite outcrops of the Nubib and Tsaris mountains. The name “Hammerstein” is derived from one of the huge rocks shaped like a hammer.
We drive south through barren and rocky landscapes, onto the world’s second largest canyon. Fish River Canyon is one of the many natural wonders of Africa. Once again, this area offers wonderful photographic opportunities as we stroll around and visit the canyon’s infamous sharp river bend known famously as ‘Hell’s Corner’.
