We explore this unique area on foot before heading into Dead Vlei with its large expanse of bleached cracked clay and skeletal camel thorn trees, contrasting with a backdrop of huge dunes with their ever-changing colors. We can either walk or take the 4x4 shuttle back to our vehicle.
As we drive back to our accommodation we will stop at the famous Dune 45 and climb this dune if we wish or just wander around the base.
