We made a quick stop in the small town of Solitaire (pop. 92) to purchase something special from their popular bakery. I had the biggest brownie ever. From there we made our way to Sesriem, the kick-off point for Sossusvlei, a park famous for its salt flat in the middle of a sand dune. This site also appeared on the cover of a Pink Floyd album in …
... More and more I think about it, I realize that this word is almost perfectly the ecosystem of the country. The day can be incredibly hot while at night, it burrows under the covered to stay warm. The fauna and flora as well as they are also well represented by this word: some part of the country are abundant in life while deserts contain only small grains of red rock. Only a few small bugs dare to venture.
Anyway, I'm surprised by the level ...
... Here they still stand as silhouettes in front of the dunes reminding us all how nature evolves and nothing is ever stationery...and to pose for the tourists camera! Above the Sousslvei pan we trounced up another dune, which again offered beautiful views of the area and a little more peace and quiet than Dune 45. In front of us was only one other man who must of been approaching 70 and who did very well climbing up all of that sand, especially in the heat of the desert. We moved on past ...
Left the campsite at 5:40 to travel for an hour to Dune 45, the dune which has the most scenic sunrises.

The changing colours of the surrounding mountains, dunes and clay plains as ...
... Dennis and I agreed not to stop again until we reached the bottom. We held hands as we charged the vlei below, and arrived breathless at the base, cheering for the French couple just a little behind us. We made our way back to the 2WD parking lot, and ate a picnic lunch in the glorious shade. We considered doing another short hike from the parking lot after lunch, but it was past noon and crazy hot.

TravelPod Member ReviewsSossusvlei Lodge Sesriem
Usamos esse lodge como um ponto de apoio em uma viagem de bate-e-volta saindo de Swakopmund.
Não há de que reclamar, a estrutura da pousada inclui pista de pouso, um bom restaurante, uma conveniente loja de lembrancinhas, piscina, banheiros e outras amenidades que pudemos utilizar em nosso passeio para o deserto de Sossusvlei.
Não conhecemos os quartos, mas pelo padrão geral (e pelo preço seletivo), acredito que também seja muito bom.
