Spot the jackal. In the desert, you spot them often and sometimes it’s the only living creature you see for kilometers. @travel_uncharted
A big thank you to all the awesome people we have met along our way.
As we close out our first chapter with Namibia we’re so grateful for all the people that made us feel so welcome and helped us enjoy this spectacular country. We’re especially grateful to @gondwanalodges.
Thanks to them we were able to experience Namibia to the fullest, in all of its geographic diversity. So we want to share this amazing storm seen from the petrified dunes of their Namib Desert lodge. #namibia #namibiafirst #namibia2go #storm #rainbow #namibdesert #travelphotography
Deathvlei, Sossusvlei, Namibia
The most spectacular attraction in the Namib-Naukluft National Park is Sossusvlei. Deathvlei is a large, white, salt and clay pan surrounded by large red dunes. The winds that bring in the Atlantic Ocean fog, are responsible for creating the Namib Naukluft Park's towering sand dunes. The dunes in this area are some of the highest in the world, reaching almost 400 meters, and provide beautiful morning and evening light. The orange color develops over time as iron in the sand is oxidized. Due to the dry conditions in the Namib Desert the river seldom flows this far and the pan remains bone-dry most years. During an exceptional rainy season the Tsauchab fills the pan and changes it into a glassy 'lake' holding reflections of the surrounding dunes.

Hoy hace un año empezaba un viaje espectacular que me llevó por 43 países. Un día me levanté de la carpa 4:30 am para llegar a ver el amanecer arriba de la duna 45 en el desierto de Namib, considerado el más antiguo de la tierra. Con los primeros rayos de sol los colores y la temperatura empezaron a cambiar rápidamente, en un par de horas ya no se podía caminar sobre la arena.
We just finished a six day (181km) stretch through the desert. It was an experience that we will never forget as long as we live, tough on every level, but hugely rewarding. We still have more than a 120km until we reach the coast again, but from here it's all downhill. Thanks to everybody that has helped us over the past few days, we could not have done it without you. For now though, we're taking a day off at the beautiful guest farm in Klein Aus.
The desert nights can get pretty cold, a welcome relief from the hot days.
