Sossusvlei

Dune Paradise

We took the opportunity to stop at Sossusvlei on the way back north from Roter Kamm crater. This is a big tourist destination, featuring towering, red dunes, sliced by an ephemeral river that also deposits bright white salt pans at the dune base. Dead Vlei adds skeletal trees to the dune/pan backdrop. You'll also find pictures of our charming Moon Mountain Lodge from that night, a safari-like collection of individual tented lodges all overlooking the broad valley. It was my favorite place of the trip. Finally, you'll see pictures of Pepper the cheetah and her steady orange gaze.
