Sesriem Canyon - Sossusvlei - Deadvlei

My friend photographer and birder, Chanan who lives in Cape Town, came to visit and together we spent 3 nights at the Sossusdune lodge, the only lodge inside the Namib-Naukluft national park.  The Namibian Wildlife Resort (NWR) manages the lodge... that says it all.  However, we had a very pleasant stay with decent food and very nice staff.  We bravely dived into the cold pool.  The main objective of the trip was photography, mostly dune- and desert-scapes and Chanan even managed to add 2 new birds to his 1000 bird photographic challenge.
