Nestled within the oldest desert in the world, Sossusvlei is home to the highest sand dunes on the planet. It is one of the few places in the Namib Desert that receives seasonal rains, which is why it’s name literally means “the gathering place of water.”
A climb up one of these dunes provides breathtaking views of the whole area, including Deadvlei, a large ghostly expanse of dried white clay punctuated by skeletons of ancient camelthorn trees, carbon dated between 500 – 600 years old.
Thanks to its unbelievably stunning landscapes of rolling red dunes and valleys, Sossusvlei provides the perfect setting for hot air balloon rides, game drives, and walking Namibia safari tours. As you journey along this unbelievable geographic phenomenon, you’ll be presented with one of the most astonishing natural places on earth to show off your photography and videography skills. You’re also likely to observe desert-adapted creatures such as the ostrich, spotted and brown hyena, bat-eared fox, and porcupine, as well as exotic insects and reptiles.
