Namib Naukluft & Sossusvlei

The Sossusvlei, a highlight in the heart of the Namib Desert, is a huge clay pan, enclosed by giant sand dunes. Some of the spectacular sand dunes are more than 300 metres high and are the tallest in the world. It's a stunning, surreal environment. Here you will find dead acacia trees that mark old courses of the river, now dried up. Some of these have been dated at over 500 years old.
