Day 2:  Namib Desert – Sossusvlei
We begin our day pre-dawn so as to capture the spectacular sunrise over the desert. The shifting shadows and changing light over the dunes creates amazing contrasts and is a photographers dream. We trek through the desert to Dune 45 then on to Sossusvlei, taking in the incredible dune formations. A walk across the pan of Deadvlei is a must with its ancient thorn trees and dunes.  After soaking up the desert we head towards camp, with a stop at Sesriem Canyon. Dinner under the desert stars.
