Every line and shadow of Sossusvlei was incredible. But it was time to leave. After a great night’s sleep, we climbed on the plane to experience it from the air as we traveled from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund to visit another part of Namibia.
Carlos was our pilot and Aravind sat in as co-pilot. I’m not sure Aravind could have assisted if the plane was going down, because he was just as busy taking pictures as I was.
Here’s the video view. It was an amazing flight and with the patch and Dramamine, no motion sickness for me!
And here is an aerial view of Deadvlei. It’s not the best picture, but I’m really glad I caught it.
We flew over the fairy circles. Scientists still are not positive about what causes them.
It was incredible to see the Atlantic Ocean from the air.
And…the shipwrecks caused by the rough seas and possibly inattentive captains.
I’m so glad we experienced the area from both the air and the ground. It was beautiful both times, but in very different ways.
