Sesriem Canyon

climbing down the small canyon before resting and camping in the middle of the desert

Location: 

Sesriem Canyon, Namibia

Duration: 

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Personal highlights

  1. Sesriem: small settlement in the heart of the Namib Desert
  2. Canyon: fairly small in comparison to the Fish River Canyon
  3. Namib Desert: meaning "vast place" and stretches up to 2,000 km
  4. National Park: having to pay twice because of losing the receipt
  5. Camping: giving me a hard time with a very bad layout
