Sossusvlei Desert

Discover the iconic Sossusvlei Desert

One of the oldest, driest and most pristine areas on Earth, the Namib Desert is a world of vast spaces, endless horizons, dramatic desertscapes and jagged mountain heights.

The largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa, the NamibRand Nature Reserve spans 215,000 hectares (530,000 acres) of this unspoiled desert wilderness.

The spectacular dunes at Sossusvlei, arrayed in magnificent hues of orange, buttermilk, pumpkin and sienna, tower over a vast, dry pan. Over 230 metres (750 feet) high and constantly twisted and shaped by the wind, these breathtaking dunes are among the highest in the world.
