This was our first stop in Namibia. I am very glad that the path begins in the south and moved north. Thus we saw the different climatic zones and avoided the terrible heat . We were surprised of the temperature in the desert - it was enough comfortable . To avoid overheating, you should always be dress clothes with long sleeves and a good hat. All tours and safaris begin at sunrise or before sunset, so the hottest time of the day we rested in our wonderful cabins. First of all I want to mention fine dining Little Kula . It was something remarkable and totally unexpected in the desert. As well as a wine cellar ! Exceptionally friendly and high quality service create an atmosphere of Little Kula like you visit your friends. Our guid Alpha not only brilliantly knows the history , geography and wildlife of Namibia , but is a real philosopher . Thank you, Alpha ! Now, sitting in snow-covered Moscow I remember with smile our picnic in the dunes at sunset . In Safari , we also flew in a balloon with an incredible french mangolfier , who looks exactly like Dundy Crocodile . Do not miss out - the flight - the pearl of the trip! It is not scary . Believe me, I was really scared before . But the silence when the ball soars over the desert - it is like a breath. And after landing champagne awaits you . Dandy will open it with a machete ! Wildlife Sossufleya certainly not like Etosha . But for those who want to experience what a real life in Namibia is .Antelopes and oraksys in Sossuflei will give a lot of beautiful moments and pics too . We were lucky that the weather was perfect and both nights at the lodge we spent watching the stars on the roof. At our request - on the roof make the bed and it was the most incredible sky that I saw.
