A day in the Dunes of Namibia!

The sand dunes of Namibia is an unmissable sight! I’ve travelled to over 45 countries and this place is one of my favourite places on Earth.

Start the day as early as possible to get entry to the Namib Naukluft Park at the Sesrium Gate for opening to beat the crowds and the heat!

I started off at Dune 45 – the way the early morning sun strikes across the dunes is an incredible sight!

Once you’ve enjoyed Dune 45 drive down to Sussosvlei to see one of the most striking sights of all. You’ll need to get a shuttle bus here. This is one of the most well known spots of Namibia.

If you’re feeling energetic climb ‘Big Daddy’ it’s not for the faint hearted but the views at the top are second to none.

Now for the fun part! Don’t go down the way you walked up – run straight down!! So much fun with the soft sand you feel like you’re flying.

Enjoy the flat walk on the dried mud to trees. They’re such a rare sight be sure to spend time exploring each one.
