Road to Swakopmund Adding a Sponsoo sticker to the South of Capricorn The road from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund crosses some really bizarre landscapes. We discovered our first zebras, and got into a sand storm just before reaching Swakopmund. The last 250km of the pad to Swakopmund just go straight through the stone desert. A good
The Namib desert spans over 95,000km² of coastline in Namibia and Angola. Its huge sand dunes are among the highest dunes in the world, and the UNESCO declared it "World Heritage" in 2013. Most well known are the dunes in Sossusvlei, that reach heights of more than 350 meters. With their red color, they stand in sharp
