Namib-Naukluft Park Things to Do: 81 reviews and 169 photos
Sunrise over the dunes is truly unforgettable, and a good enough reason to wake up early in the desert's cold mornings :-) It is especially nice in the Namib, as since it is a very old desert the sand is oxidised to a deep orange colour, especially apparent and at its most beautiful in the dawn's sun rays - especially in this quiet, remote atmosphere. The early hours are also a great time to be hanging around because the desert animals are out and about at that time. Expect to see at least Ostriches and Springboks, and maybe Gemsbok (Oryx).
Directions: Best to see on the road leading from Sesriem to Sussusvlei. Mind you that the sun will be BEHIND you so keep an eye to the rear!!
