3 Day Sossusvlei Link is a 3 day Camping tour with the following
* Namib Desert
* Sossusvlei Dunes
* Sesriem Gorge
We travel out over the Eros Mountains and along scenic roads,
on our way south-west to the desert. We also pass over part
of the Naukluft Mountains the Khomas Hochland range on our journey
today and head down from Namibia's central plateau by way of
the beautifull Remhoogte Pass. Coming out of the mountains we
reach open plains and from here it is only a short distance
to our next stop, the tiny town of Solitaire. We will stop here
for some refreshments before continuing on through desert scenery
cross some open grass savannah and farmlands before the terrain
begins to give way to the immense red sand dune desert of the
aim to arrive at Sesriem during the late afternoon and we have
time to drive out to one of the nearby dunes to watch the colours
on distant mountains to the east, glow and change.

A pre-dawn start to see the sunrise in the dunes. We drive a
further 60 km into the desert and have our breakfast as the
colours grow across the landscape.
reach Sossusvlei itself we walk for the last 5 km through the
dunes. The walk is like nothing else, in the cool of the morning,
with soft sunlight just beginning to play over the dunes creating
a sharp light and shadow contrast across the whole desert. Ancient
mineral pans, stunted camel horn trees and the chance of seeing
a gemsbok or maybe an ostrich make the photo opportunities perfect.
We spend the morning in and around Sossusvlei, also visiting
"dune 45", and as the day wears on we return to Sesriem
for lunch and to escape the heat of the afternoon. As the day
cools off in the late afternoon we will take a short excursion
to the Sesriem Canyon.
time: approx. 2hrs (150 km)
