    Days 4-5: Running Up Dune 45

    Your journey takes you to the Namib-Naukluft National Park today, where you’ll set up camp and then take a short hike to the Sesriem Canyon. Similar to the Fish River Canyon, though not in size, the Sesriem Canyon is a fascinating attraction as it’s not visible from the ground until you are right up close. 

    The next day will be an early wake up as you make your way to the Sossusvlei Dunes to climb the famous Dune 45. Marvel at the change of colour of the sand from red to shades of orange and apricot as the sun rises into the sky. Afterwards, embark with a local expert on a guided walking tour of the dunes and the area.
