Description:
Sesriem Camp Site

At the entry to Sossusvlei is Sesriem Canyon, where centuries of erosion have incised a narrow gorge about 1 km in length. At the foot of the gorge, which plunges down to 30 to 40 m, are pools that become replenished after good rains. Sesriem derives its name from the time when earlier pioneers tied six lengths of rawhide thongs (riem) together to draw water from the pools. Explore the Sesriem Canyon from this great and scenic campsite, during the rainy season rock pools sometimes form in the canyon and provide excellent swimming opportunities. During drier months you can walk up the canyon. Sossusvlei is the reason you are staying here, popular opinion is that the dunes are best seen early in the morning or late afternoon and a petrified dune near the Sesriem Camp proves a popular spot to watch the sunset (for those not rushing back from a late afternoon visit to Sossusvlei).
