Namibia – Sossusvlei, Deadvlei


SKU: 60D Category:

Deadvlei is a clay pan with dead camel thorn trees.  The pan was formed when the Tsauchab River flooded the area and the camel thorn trees grew.  Later, the shifting sand dunes blocked the river, and the trees died.  The trees are estimated to be approximately 900 years old, but have not decomposed due to the dry climate.
