The drive from Keetmanshoop to Sossusvlei started after a hearty breakfast, and turned out to be an easy trip. We arrived in good time – in fact we were in time for a late lunch.
Three guests then enjoyed a helicopter excursion to take in the amazing, dramatic sights from an aerial perspective. The helicopter took them all the way over the dunes to the ocean where the awesome sight of the waves crashing onto the dunes provided photographic opportunity after opportunity.
They then experienced Dead Vlei from the air and soon after they spotted a jackal and later some gemsbok.
A guest who opted not to take the helicopter trip accompanied me to the Sossusvlei Park. We took the opportunity to capture the different moods and angles of the beautiful dunes and were delighted to find Springbok to complete our photographic compositions. We positioned ourselves to snap the buck as they moved along the ridge of the dunes … simply wonderful!
All too soon it was time to pick up the guests from their helicopter ride and to return to the Lodge for dinner.
Tomorrow we plan to spend much of our time in the park again …
