Day 39 Sesfontein - Swakopmund

From Sesfontein we were heading South on gravel roads. Some Kudus on the way:

And giraffes on the middle of the road:

Few kilometres from Bergsig village we turned off to a smaller 4x4 road:

And for the next half of the day the scenery was absolutely stunning, it is called Desolation Valley. The road was winy:

And we saw some more dessert elephants!

After a while the road took us into the mountains:

There was a campsite in the mountains called Rhino Campsite, and soon after that we came onto gravel road in the dessert towards the sea:

Lots of mirages:

We joined salt paved road C34 at fishing mile 100. Salt roads are made of concentrated salt and some gypsum rich material, they are near Atlantic Ocean within a mist zone. Great and smooth driving!

In Henties Bay we went for a beer.

Then we continued our drive to Swakopmund. That is town with lots of hotels, resorts, restaurants. Most of the population are Germans, so you can see German architecture, bakeries, supermarkets, restaurants etc. You would never believe you are in Africa (maybe only palm trees deceive)! So we went for a campsite, and then to have some oysters:

Some seafood:
