So we just arrived back in Cape Town, where our trip started and where it will end in a couple of days. Crazy how time always flies by when you’re traveling, but what a trip it was!
Picture by my sweetest assistant @ileenjamarina, who has been patient enough to endure me. 😘
Good morning 🌞
It was terrifying to drive that tiny car to Sossusvlei! Glad I got insurance with the rental!
I wrote a post all about seeing #Sossusvlei on a budget. The link it in my bio. If you can believe it my 4 day, 3 night adventure cost me $110 dollars and that included car rental, gas, camping fees, food, and park entrance fees! .
Group tours cost 600 dollars and you aren't flexible...you can't be the first person on your own dune in the morning!
Sossusvlei is not for sissies. Neither is camping in 42 degree heat 🏜️💥but wow is it magnificent!

Deathvlei, Sossusvlei, Namibia
The most spectacular attraction in the Namib-Naukluft National Park is Sossusvlei. Deathvlei is a large, white, salt and clay pan surrounded by large red dunes. The winds that bring in the Atlantic Ocean fog, are responsible for creating the Namib Naukluft Park's towering sand dunes. The dunes in this area are some of the highest in the world, reaching almost 400 meters, and provide beautiful morning and evening light. The orange color develops over time as iron in the sand is oxidized. Due to the dry conditions in the Namib Desert the river seldom flows this far and the pan remains bone-dry most years. During an exceptional rainy season the Tsauchab fills the pan and changes it into a glassy 'lake' holding reflections of the surrounding dunes.
Nossa viagem de carro pela Namibia acabou! Agora vamos organizar as fotos e liberar os roteiros para ajudar a todos que querem visitar o país!
Hoje deixo dois cartões postais nacionais... #deadvlei
O contraste da areia branca, as árvores fossilizadas e as dunas vermelhas fazem esse lugar único no mundo!
Uma parte de um parque nacional com dunas vermelhas de formatos variados! Algo lindíssimo. 💡 e ai ficou com um pouco de vontade de visitar esse que é considerado o país mais seguro da África?
