Sossusvlei is Namibia’s number 1 tourist attraction. And rightly so – it defies adjectives.

Although there are plenty of tour busses and overland trucks around, it’s vast enough to feel completely alone. And the silence is deafening. We stayed at Little Sossus campsite for a night, and then at the Sesriem Rest Camp, inside the Namib Naukluft Park.

If you’re going to make the effort to get all the way to Sesriem, you have to make the effort to climb one of the nearby dunes to watch the sun rise. It’s a memory that will live with you forever. Fortunately Kerryn’s left foot had recovered faster than expected, and we were both able to make it to the top of Dune 45 just in time.

Jeff and Kerryn

Kerryn-lee grew up in the wilds of the Kruger Park, where she developed a love of all things nature. Jeff grew up in the wilds of Jozi’s northern suburbs, where he developed a chronic longing for all things nature. After spending 5 months road-tripping Southern Africa a couple of years back, and then another 5 months backpacking the Indian sub-continent, they've decided it's time to get to know their own country a little better. They're currently traveling the circumference of South Africa for their honeymoon, which presented the perfect excuse to go on another adventure.
