Probably the biggest attraction for Namibia tourists!
But there is a lot more to be seen:
Hidden Vlei, Sossus vlei, Nara Vlei, Dune Elim, Dune 51…
Access to this Namibia Wildlife Resort is possible from sunrise to sunset only, unless you’re spending the night in the lodge or on the campsite between the two gates of NWR. The second gate opens one hour before sunrise. With 60 kilometres to drive to the Vleis, at a limited speed of 60 km/h you’ll arrive just in time to get the best light to take your photos.
East of Namib Desert: Tiras Farm, Namtib Eco Lodge, Tsauchab River Lodge
Quivertree Forest, Fish River Canyon an Oranje River
Consider to take a day to do the Marine Cruise (we were lucky to be only 6 people on the Mola-Mola boat!) to view fur seals, pelicans, dolphins…
and to spend the afternoon on a 4×4 dune tour to Sandwich Harbour.
… and don’t forget to order some fresh oysters in the restaurant The Raft on the waterfront!
They are among the best we have ever eaten!
Off the traditional tourist routes, you’ll find some awesome landscapes.
Namibia – May / June 2016
A few Namibian landscapes, to give you an idea, what it was about!
Be aware that Namibia is close to the equator and sunrise as well sunset is a matter of a few minutes only. So the ideal moments to catch good landscape scenery are one to two hours after sunrise and before sunset. Pictures taken from 11 a.m to 2:30 p.m. will be rather flat, the sun standing just over your head and there will be no shadows giving some depth to your picture… Well, it will be to hot anyway during these hours, so, may be the best thing to do is to stay in the air conditioned car and drive to your next scenic spot
