Here we can fully appreciate the splendour of this area, especially in the early hours of the morning, as well as bask in the quiet serenity surrounding us.

We will explore this area on foot before we go to Dead Vlei with endless stretches of bleached black clay and skeletal camel thorn trees dotted around. The dunes are illuminated by light providing a contrast of light. We will either walk or take a shuttle back to our vehicle. Before we reach our accommodation we will stop at Dune 45 where you can either climb it or circumnavigate the base. We will arrive back at our lodge in the late afternoon for a spectacular sunset over the desert. We will rest in permanent tents or bungalows after enjoying a meal together prepared by the guide.
