It’s a predawn departure from Sesriem the following morning and you will drive into the heart of the dunes and explore Sossusvlei witnessing the first light and the shadows on the Sand dunes as the sun lifts over the apricot dunes in the heart of the famous dune sea of Namibia, is nothing short of spectacular.   We will climb a dune close to Sossusvlei then walk to Deadvlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge orange-red dunes.  We’ll enjoy a mid morning brunch after exploring this dramatic and desolate landscape before returning to our camp.

Overnight: Okaukuejo Campsite      

Okaukuejo is located 17 km from the southern entrance of the park Anderson Gate, it is the oldest tourist camp in Etosha and functions as the administrative centre of the park and home to the Etosha Ecological Institute. It is situated at the western end of the Etosha Pan in the south section, facilities include a restaurant, bar, shop, swimming pool, and kiosk. Wifi available (extra charge).  The main attraction of this camp is the floodlit permanent waterhole where a wide diversity of wildlife congregate and interact from lion to rhino to elephant and antelope. The spectacle starts at dawn, with animals coming in large numbers to quench their thirst and continues throughout the day until late at night. In the early evenings, it is not uncommon to have black rhino, elephant and lion all drinking at the same time. The campsites are located near to the waterhole and along the boundary fence. Some smaller sites are set on a concrete base near the shared ablution and washing/kitchen facilities, with others a little further away. There is an electric point on most of them.
