Hiddenvlei is a 2km walk from the end of the 2×4 track and the route is marked with wooden polls. This vlei is the least visited of all the vleis letting those who make the journey enjoy some solitude in the beautiful desert surroundings.
During your walk to Hiddenvlei, look closely at the sand to examine the various tracks of the animals that occupy the area. You should be able to distinguish the tracks of Gemsbok and Springbok quite easily. However, on closer inspection you will be able to see the tracks of the smaller animals that generally live underneath the sand, for example the little Namib Gecko.
