  • At the end of the trip through the dune landscape of Soussusvlei we made a tip at the Sesrim Canyoun. For a short walk and photo stop, the location is okay

  • It's not what impressed me most about the Namibian desert. Their afrikaans name means "six belts" which is what the first settlers needed to be able to get to the bottom of the river and draw water.
