From the dune I could see Saga, Amanda, Björn and Dan.
This pan was formed a long time ago as the Tsauchab river flooded. Temporary pools of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow.
Some 900 years ago sand dunes stopped the water from the river and drought made it impossible for the trees to survive. These blackened and very dry remains are 900 years old! Here visited by a modern technical device.
…as the newcomers started their climb up the highest sand dune in the world.
