I wonder if this is the location for some of the scenes in the movie The Fall ? I just assumed the trees were props. Hmmm… who knows…There is something familiar about them. They also remind me of the film The Little Prince, the one with Gene Wilder as the fox, and Bob Fosse as the snake. Surreal.
Located in the middle of the Namibian desert, Deadvlei used to be a luscious oasis. Thousands of years ago the marshland dried up in a record drought, and now all that remains are the skeletons of 900-year-old trees, surrounded by the highest sand dunes in the world, at over 1000 feet tall. The result looks as foreign as Mars.
