The next day started early, 5 am, because we were privileged to enter the park at 5.45 instead of 6.45 for the visitors who stay outside the boundaries of the Sossusvlei. Along with a handful of cars we started the 65 km ride to the Sossuvlei. On the way we stopped at Dune 45 which is a big sand dune on which you can climb and we were just in time to see the sunset
The next spot was the Sossuvlei and Deathvlei which are a bit further. All normal 2 wheel drive vehicles have to stop at an end point and from there you can take a bus (100 N$ return) to go to the Vlei's and back. We walked the 5 km and it was nice to walk through this unique landscape. We climbed the Sossusvlei and went to the Death vlei and made some cool pics.
After visiting most sights we went back for a shower and some soup and packed our stuff to continue the trip.
- When going to or coming from Sossusvlei and going to the south TAKE THE C27 route. This is the most beautiful scenic road you have ever seen and definitely don’t wanna miss!!!?!?!
- Always stay at the Sesriem campsite inside the park to be able to see the sunrise from Dune 45.
