"...no wonder it has been nominated as the 8th Wonder of the world!"
Picture this; Rusty-red sand dunes, deep blue skies, dark-dead camel thorn trees on white clay pans! THIS...ladies and gentlemen, is Deadvlei, Namibia.
This sight is surrounded by the highest sand dunes in the world. Almost as tall as the Empire State Building in New York!
Formed after rainfall and flooding of the Tsauchab River, this created temporary shallow pools. The abundance of water aided Camel Thorn Trees to grow in the area.
Eventually, drought hit the area and sand dunes intruded on the pan and blocked the Tsauchab River, causing the trees to dry up.
There are no mistakes in nature, this made for an amazing sight to witness and Deadvlie has become a tourist attraction and it's no wonder that it has been nominated as the 8th wonder of the world!
Tourists from all over the world visit this amazing sight, which is now over 900 years old. And photographers worldwide travel to capture this beautiful gift from Mother Nature!
Deadvlie is located about 44 miles from Namib-Naukluft Park, Namibia, where you can also enjoy hot air balloon rides, desert hikes, sand boarding and so much more!
Experienice the most breath taking sunrise and sunset, with the clearest skies in the world! Do make sure you have your sunscreen, hats and lots of water with you on your visit to this magnificent site!
