About: Sossusvlei. Gateway to planet Namib

Sossusvlei: Gateway to planet Namib makes fascinating reading, and is especially gripping and valuable to anybody who has seen and experienced the Namib. It also gives something of an intimate tour for those who would like to experience it. The author succeeds in transmitting her deep feelings about this desert, for she has experienced the Namib more intimately than most people. What makes the book special is when Sakki Namis paints this remarkable desert with her personal insights. She has both the personal experience of the Namib and the knowledge of many of the fascinating facts to produce a book that many a visitor to Sossusvlei would be only too delighted to consult and take home as a meaningful memento of a fascinating place. (Dr. Joh Henschel, Desert Research Foundation of Namibia)
