Deadvlei

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 12 June 2018 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Deadvlei is a white clay pan located near the more famous salt pan of Sossusvlei, inside the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia.Deadvlei means "dead marsh" and is believed to have dried up 1000 years ago. It is a very long hike ( 1 1/2 hours) over soft desert sand, but the view is amazing when you get there.

A fine spot to 'get away from it all', I imagine !

@Ronnie 2¢: Not so much, tourists trek in and out all day long. We were quite lucky that there was only one other party on the vlei when we walked around it.

You're right, the view is amazing. It's not quite easy to go beyond that terrain.

Definitely worth the effort to get there - but it almost killed us on a very hot day!

@dobbino: Us too, we only got there late morning, so it was midday when we eventually got there. Whew!! Hard work but so worth it.
