Photographer's Note

On the road from Sesriem to Sossusvlei in the southwest of Namibia one crosses the highest sand dunes in Africa and possibly the entire world...some reaching a height of 300 m! Temperatures here in late winter hover around 40C in the shade. Problem is...there is not much shade for miles. Route 37 at Sesriem opens at 07h30. From there it's a straight shot of about 60 km to the end of the road at Sossusvlei. From there on a few more kilometers one has to take a 4 X 4 with a government driver. Cost: 1 euro (10 Namibian dollars).
