It’s still dark as we wait at the entrance of Sossusvlei. We’ve arranged a ride with the 4×4 drivers working at the famous dunes, since we cannot enter with our bicycles. It’s a bit chilly, but we know it will be blazing hot again once the sun rises.
It’s pretty hot in Namibia! Long, dusty and straight roads, a blazing sun and the occasional tree to have some shade. Our day usually starts at 6AM (after all this is our holiday!) and we ride till we sea a tree at about 1PM. Here we have a siesta and wait for the temperature to drop a bit. Yep, this is Namibia!
