A sandwagon to cross the dunes of Sossusvlei, here is the news for tourists who travel to Namibia.
That doesn’t sound like a great solution where there is silence and you hear only the sound of the wind that flows around the dunes as high as mountains.
It would have been a possible solution to avoid all access to the cars, instead I read that it is just another service offered several times a day. With this bandwagon tourists can go at dawn, conveniently back to the lodge for lunch and return to the dunes for the sunset.
I understand and I support the development of tourism, but this seems to me wanting to over-exploit a territory with an extremely delicate ecosystem. Honestly, it seems excessive to pass and repass with the wheels of cars and exhaust produced in a wilderness desert inhabited by small insects adapted to extreme conditions.
Below I post the flyer posted on FB … judge for yourself ….

Last week NWR launched its sandwagon at Sossusvlei that operates at the 2×4 parking, some 5 km from the Vlei, where clients visiting the Sossus and Dead Vlei park and walk, or taxi with us to these world renowned sites.
We transport each client at N$ 100 per person per day, and allow clients multiple use for the day.
It has a ice packed cooler box and we sell water, beer and cooldrinks on this ride as well.

  • Benvenuti in Café Africa!

    Café Africa è un viaggio alla scoperta di un continente vasto, vario e pieno di energia.
    Un luogo d’incontro per raccontare l’Africa e per cercare di conoscerla più profondamente, superando i luoghi comuni e i pregiudizi di cui spesso è vittima e indagando su aspetti poco noti.
    Café Africa è un mio personale modo di rendere omaggio all’Africa, terra di cui mi sono innamorata perdutamente al primo incontro.
    Per informazioni, anche di viaggi:
