We pay a brief visit to the lagoon to observe the birds and travel a short distance to Walvis Bay to gather last minute provisions before again making our way into the desert. The second portion of our travels today carries us over more of the never-ending Namib gravel terrain. Then without much warning, the landscape transforms into mountain desert.

We journey through both the Kuiseb and Gaub passes, travelling both times to the river beds at the canyons’ base and then ascending the escarpment to the summit where we are treated to incredible mountainous views. The landscape then changes once more as we head down into the dune fields. We head across a few open grass savannah and farmlands before the landscape begins to transform into the vibrant red sand dune desert of the Namib. From here it is a brief distance to our following stopover in the small town of Solitaire. We attempt to reach our camp in the early evening to observe the glowing colours transform on faraway mountains in the east.

We should arrive here in the late afternoon where we can watch the glorious glow of the sunset on the mountains to the east.

Day 9: Sossusvlei – Sesriem, Nambia

Today we embark on an early morning drive in order to catch a glimpse of the exceptional desert sunrise. Once we’ve passed through the Sesriem (the gateway to the dunes), we make our way into the centre of the dune fields, finally arriving at Sossusvlei on foot, walking the final 5 kilometres through the dunes themselves.

Beautiful photographic opportunities are abundant in the cool morning, with the gentle light of dawn lighting up the dunes from their summits to their bases. During these sunrises, orange blazes all around the desert and creates a contrasting landscape across the entire area. Old mineral pans, undersized camel thorn trees and the possibility of spotting a gemsbok or ostrich make taking your camera along an essential part of this trip.

Our morning is spent in the surrounds of Sossusvlei, paying a visit to the world famous Dune 45. As the day winds down to a finish, we make our way back to Sesriem for a tasty lunch and to reach some shade during the hot hours of the afternoon.
