Dune 45 is one of the many Dunes that are formed in the Namid desert. The allure is that you can climb to the top before sunrise and wait.
As small as small towns get this is it. This used to be the place where most who come to this area of Namibia get their supplies. Another place has opened up in Sesriem just south of here, but its still a place to stop. It also has accommodations as well in case you are tired and can’t make the entire trip. Plus the apple crumb pie is pretty amazing at the onsite Bakery.
It’s Africa that’s why? A pretty large city, well, its the capital of Namibia and the gateway to many safaris in the area. Although the area is dry and brown, its not as hot as you think. It’s a very modern city with very friendly people as well, not to mention a rich history.
