When you think of staying at the sea, you don't think that it's going to be full of sand! That's the case when you visit the Namib Sand Sea.
I don't know that I have ever experienced as much peace as I did during my stay at the Gobabeb Training and Research Center, located about two hours away from the nearest town, Walvis Bay.
Gobabeb is at the intersection of 3 distinct ecosystems. The sand sea, in my opinion, was the most photographic.
They say the stars shine bright deep in the heart of Texas, but they have nothing on the stars of Gobabeb. The night sky there is unlike anything I've ever seen. The contrast of dark, yet light with stars is amazing.
