The unique beauty of the desert of namibia

After breakfast at the foot of the dune 45 continue 30 km. more until the road ends jutting into the Namib-Naukluft. From there it is all sand, so you can only carry 4x4. We left the truck and we go several miles in every open field that is used in the safaris. We are in Sossusvlei. The cold dawn gives way to own desert heat and the dunes are acquiring tone more intense orange color. The east wind keeps pushing the sand towards the Atlantic Ocean, making life difficult on the dune, but not impossible. In the lower areas enjoy a spectacular contrast of colors between the red sand and white silt deposits originated in the rainy season. Footprints remain when the ground was wet. To this must be added the silhouette dry tree, giving the landscape an eerie, unique look.

La belleza única del desierto de namibia

Después de desayunar al pie de la duna 45 continuamos 30 km. más hasta que termina la carretera que se adentra en el Namib-Naukluft. A partir de ahí todo es arena, por lo que sólo se puede continuar en vehículos 4x4. Dejamos el camión y nos adentramos varios kilómetros en el todo terreno abierto que se utiliza en los safaris. Estamos en Sossusvlei. El frío del amanecer va dando paso al calor propio del desierto y las dunas van adquiriendo un tono de color naranja más intenso. El viento del este sigue empujando la arena en dirección al océano Atlántico, haciendo difícil la vida sobre la duna, pero no imposible. En las zonas más bajas disfrutamos de un contraste de colores espectacular entre la arena rojiza y los depósitos de limo blanquecino originados en la época de lluvias. Todavía quedan huellas de pisadas de cuando el suelo estaba húmedo. A esto hay que añadir la silueta de los árboles secos, que confieren al paisaje un aspecto fantasmal, único.

In Sossusvlei you find the highest sand dunes in the world! Since you can not see the desert from sheer sand ... One sees barren lakes (Vleis) and everywhere sand. But the beautiful on the sand: He verndert constantly its color - depending on the position of the sun. Therefore, it can be observed schn on a hike over merhere hours that the Danes different look each time. Running on the combing the sand dunes can be very stressful, because you always upload a step and simultaneously a half goes down again. the sand is besides, noon towards getting hotter. But the view is fantastic if you look over a sea of ​​dunes! Particularly bizarre are the dead Baumstmpfe in Dead Vlei. The walk here is hard and hot, but it's worth it and you should hchstens zurcklegen a distance with the rangers in the off-road cars.

Im Sossusvlei findet man die höchsten Sanddünen der Welt! Da sieht man die Wüste vor lauter Sand nicht mehr...
Man sieht ausgetrocknete Seen (Vleis) und überall Sand. Doch das schöne an dem Sand: Er verändert ständig seine Farbe - je nach Stand der Sonne. Deswegen ist es bei einer Wanderung über merhere Stunden schön zu beobachten, dass die Dünen immer wieder anders aussehen.
Das Laufen auf den Kämmen der Sanddünen kann sehr anstrengend sein, da man immer einen Schritt hoch- und gleichzeitig einen halben wieder heruntergeht. Außerdem wird der Sand zum Mittag hin immer heißer. Doch die Aussicht ist phantastisch, wenn man über ein Meer von Dünen blickt!
Besonders bizarr sind die abgestorbenen Baumstümpfe im Dead Vlei. Die Wanderung hierher ist anstrengend und heiß, doch es lohnt sich und man sollte höchstens eine Strecke mit den Rangern im Geländewagen zurücklegen.

He had to get up very early to take the track and be the sunrise at Sossusvlei, but the track is too long and I do not see the "sunrise" in Sossusvlei: never mind, it's not a matter of queqlues meters: the dunes are already high and ablaze with the colors of dawn. Let us stop and enjoy the scenery. Moreover, other tourists are climbing up a nearby dune ... At Sossusvlei, we must abandon the sedan and borrow a truck because the track became too sandy. And finally we are at the foot of the highest dunes in the world. The drought was due to some trees whose trunks stand blackened, ghostly, on a white cracked soil. Ruthlessness, vast desert and men ... tiny ants on the crest of the dune.

Il a fallu se lever très tôt pour prendre la piste et être au lever de soleil à Sossusvlei, mais la piste est trop longue et je ne verrai pas le "sunrise" à Sossusvlei : tant pis, ce n'est pas une question de queqlues mètres d'altitude : les dunes sont déjà hautes et flamboient sous les couleurs de l'aurore.
Arrêtons-nous et profitons du paysage. D'ailleurs, d'autres touristes sont en train d'escalader une dune voisine...
A Sossusvlei, il faut abandonner la berline et emprunter un camion car la piste est devenue trop sableuse. Et nous voilà enfin au pied des plus hautes dunes au monde. La sécheresse a eu raison de quelques arbres dont les troncs noircis se dressent, fantomatiques, sur un sol blanc craquelé. Nature impitoyable ; immensité du désert et les hommes ... minuscules fourmis sur la crête de la dune.

Located in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, a visit to Sossusvlei a "must"! The main attractions is the region so the Dune 45 and Deadvlei, but just to be there surrounded by these incredible dunes j worth worth.

Deserto de dunas vermelhas

Uma das paisagens mais lindas da Namibia fica em Sossusvlei. Esse deserto de infinitas dunas vermelhas por onde perambulam avestruzes, oryx, springboks e até leopardos. Situado no Namib-Naukluft National Park, a visita de Sossusvlei é um "must"! As principais atrações da região são a Duna 45 e o Deadvlei, mas apenas por estar ali rodeado dessas incríveis dunas já vale à pena.
