The phone rings at 5:30am with our wakeup call and I think, oh no, it’s our last day in Soussusvlei and our last full day of holiday in Namibia and Africa. There’s no time to dwell on it though, as this morning we have our sunrise balloon flight over Soussusvlei, and we have to get moving and hussle down to the main lodge.
After a bit of a fitful sleep, waking up at odd hours to check the time on the iphone to make sure I don’t miss the wakeup call, hmm how dumb is that! Kelly and I are up and out looking at the stars at 5:15am when the phone rings. We quickly get dressed, grab all our gear, head for reception and a morning cup of coffee before we set out for our visit to the Dunes at Soussusvlei.
