Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei, translating directly to “dead-end marsh” is located in the south of Namibia, 60km inland from the Atlantic Ocean within the enormous Namib-Naukluft National Park. The area is characterised by the flat, white salt and clay pan that is surrounded by high rise, red sand dunes, which block the flow of the Tsauchab River. These dunes are some of the highest in the world, some reaching up to 400m, and they are perhaps some of the most photographed in the world too. The attractions surrounding Sossusvlei include Sesriem Canyon, Dune 45, Big Daddy, Hiddenvlei, and Dead Vlei. This majestic region of Namibia can not be missed!

Sossusvlei remains mostly dry, but when the rainfall in this desert land is high enough the water from the Tsauchab River flows through the dunes and into the pan, filling it with water that can remain here for up to a year. This “lake” in the middle of the desert that is formed reflects the towering dunes and creates an astonishing sight indeed. Despite being such a harsh and desolate place, there is a variety of fauna and flora that survive here. Beneath the sand live beetles, spiders and reptiles, such as geckos, while the larger mammals that have been spotted here include ostrich, gemsbok or oryx, and springbok. Desert predators like brown hyena, aardwolf, bat-eared fox, and Cape fox are also known to thrive here.
