Sossusvlei

Namibia’s Top Desert Attraction

Sossusvlei is an extraordinary dry salt and white clay pan surrounded by the soaring red dunes of ancient Namib sands situated in the Namib-Naukluft National Park, in the south of the country.  The dramatic wind-formed dunes in this area are among the highest sand dunes in the world. It is here that the visitor can appreciate the vast soul of the Namibian desert, and the delicate balance of life that is sustained by little more than the fine Atlantic fog.   The breath-taking desert vistas, with sands that change colour from deep ochre to mauve before your eyes, are a photographer’s dream come true.

The Namib-Naukluft National Park

• Covering 49 768 square kilometres (19 215 square miles), the Namib-Naukluft National Park is the largest game reserve in Africa, and fourth largest in the world. It incorporates a vast stretch of the Namib Desert and the Naukluft Mountain range.
• Sossusvlei is the most well-known area of the Park, and it is Namibia’s top visitor attraction. Other nearby highlights include Sesriem Canyon, Dead Vlei , the gigantic dune known as “Big Daddy” which is around 325 metres high, the highly photogenic and accessible Dune 45 and the petrified dunes.
• The Park protects an astonishing diversity of desert-adapted wildlife, from the stately melon-eating Desert Oryx, known as ‘Gemsbok’ to the Namib Desert Beetle which ingeniously collects droplets of fog from bumps on its backs.

Namib Desert highlights include:

• The white clay and salt pan of Sossusvlei surrounded by spectacular high red sand dunes
• The stunning Sesriem Canyon carved by the ephemeral Tsauchab River
• The extraordinary and unforgettable spectacle of the old desert sands changing colour as the sun sets
• Photographing the fascinating and surrealist desert landscapes
• Sightings of Oryxes, Springbok and Ostrich; as well as summer migrant bird species, desert-adapted moles, lizards, geckos and insects
