Personal highlights

  1. Sossusvlei: most famous Dune in the Namib Desert (for some reason)
  2. Dead Vlei: much more interesting and impressive than Sossusvlei
  3. The Dunes: climbing up and down soft dunes is a really hot pleasure
  4. Tourists: meeting a group of Japanese with classy mouth protection
  5. Overlander: hiking with a Brit who drove all the way from England
