The next morning we need to wake up early to visit the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei and Deadvlei. These dunes, which can reach heights of over 300 m, are absolutely spectacular and provide for a fantastic photo opportunity. With luck, there may even be water in the vlei (lake).

The CCF is an internationally recognised centre for research and education on cheetahs and their eco-systems. It boasts an extensive visitor’s centre, which encourages tourists to learn more about these beautiful cats and the efforts being made to save them. The Waterberg is a sandstone plateau which rises over 200 m from the surrounding plains and gives name to Namibia’s only mountain game park. Waterberg now supplies other Namibian parks with rare species. In 1989, black rhino were reintroduced to the area from Damaraland, sparking a successful breeding programme of national and international significance for the species. There are various trails to walk along searching for the elusive Damara dik-dik as well as a good variety of birds.
