For all the effort to get here I was finally at the entrance to the Sossusvlei Dunes. I pull up to the gates and was instructed to stop 100 yards down to purchase my permit.
I walk in the office get the permit and discover that we have a problem. No Motorcycles Allowed in the Park!
No way - No how! Now the really crazy thing is that in the park itself the road is Paved! 45 miles of asphalt and I can't go because I'm on a motorcycle. Now there are no wild dangerous animals here, just miles of sand dunes. My only options were to leave but after 420 miles of hard riding to get here I wasn't going to do that. Or catch a ride into the park and leave the bike at the gate. After asking and talking to many driving into the park all I got were no, we don't have room or we just can't . After waiting an hour finally one of the employees, Krista found a local driver that I hired to drive me into the park to see these red dunes.
I have to admit that seeing the dunes was very amazing and worth getting here. The colors are different shades of orange depending how the sunlight is hitting them.
