Two magical names igniting travel reverie, two ancient clay pans in the heart of Namibia’s desert.
Sossusvlei and Deadvlei are the famous destinations attracting travelers to this desert. Approach them at sunrise. First Deadvlei. Walk a ridge above the pan, or walk across the pan, alongside the blackened frames of dead trees.
Then Sossusvlei, a clay pan where you may see the only green for hundreds of miles around. The experience isn’t just Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. The experience is everything around you, everything that changes as you spend 24 hours or more in the desert.
But this special morning you are here, walking two of Africa’s most mythical names, embracing wild beauty.
