Dune walks in Sossusvlei Desert

Conquer the towering ‘Big Daddy’ sand dune

The essence of a Sossusvlei Excursion

This half day adventure into the Namib Naukluft National Park that features the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Namib Sand Sea, takes you down an open valley between towering red dunes. Take in and photograph the striking scenic beautify of the area as you drive in, best seen when the light is still throwing shadows off the ridges of the dunes. Your guide will chat about how the ecosystem and interesting Aeolian geological processes were formed as well as about life in this formidable environment. There will be a chance to walk to Deadvlei, where some 70 camel thorn tree trunks, 900 years dead, remain standing on a bleached clay pan. Perhaps climb a sand dune, and for the fit and adventurous, conquer the towering ‘Big Daddy’.
