Looking at photos of recent trip and wish we had taken more. It was very hot (40 Celsius) at begining of October so may be best to visit in September. Also go as early as possible to avoid midday hikes. I wish we had stayed...More

Visiting the Namib Desert (and Deadvlei) was one of the highlights of my trip to Namibia. While I had to trek across the desert in the rather hot and dry weather, the landscape was amazing and I spotted animal footprints along the way as my...More

When in the Park it is certainly worth while visiting Deadvlei. Only 4x4 vehicles can get to the car park which is still a couple of kilometres from Deadvlei, otherwise you have to pay to take the transport.

Dunes are great. Start early otherwise is very hot. Dessert changes the profile. From time to time you can see some animals.

I spent an entire day here and could easily spend an entire week. It's a photographer's paradise! Bring water and a hat and pack a lunch.

Part of the desert is at Sossusvlei in Namib-Naukluft Park. Breath-taking sights and incredible dunes, which apparently don't move like dunes in other places. They are best seen in the morning or evening as the shadows are so dramatic. Largely red in colour but with...More

From the entrance gate it's a drive of about 60km to the parking place. At kilometre 45 there's dune 45, where many people stop to climb it, as it's apparently one of the easier to climb dunes and it offers nice views. We did it...More
