It was a very enjoyable place seeing all the sand dune, especially Dune 45, Big Daddy and Deadvlie. We did spend time climbing Dune 45 and walking to Deadvlie. I would have liked to see some desert wildlife and tracks.

The distance from Windhoek and Swakopmund to Sossusvlei is very similar - about 5 hours. Swakopmund is worth a visit. Be sure to stop at Solitaire for the BEST apple crumble and coffee. Enjoy
