Sesriem Canyon

Our last stop was at Sesriem Canyon. It is 30 meters deep and 3 km long. Jan and Alex walked all the way to the bottom, I stayed about half way, not wanting to do the steep climb up again. It was really pretty where I sat on an acacia tree waiting for them (not one of the old ones).

Sesriem got it’s name from Six Thongs, the number of joined leather ox-wagon things necessary to pull up water from the canyon
After this stop the driver picked up our permits, and then we headed back towards the lodge. On our hour long drive back to the lodge we also saw many ostriches, springboks, and several oryx. They are quite easily spotted, since there isn’t anything for them to hide in.
