Sossusvlei

This salt and clay pan surrounded by towering red dunes just may be one of the most photographed spots in all of Namibia. Located in the southern tip of the Namib Desert, where unforgiving heat, blazing sun and golden sands are hallmarks of one of the nation’s most picturesque landscape, Sossusvlei—and Naukluft National Park, home of the famous Dune 45—provide the backdrop to some of the Namibia’s most beautiful, iconic and haunting images. 

Sossusvlei sits about 70 kilometers beyond the park’s Sesriem gate in terrain that’s accessible by 4WD vehicles only. Travelers to nearby Swakopmund often make a journey to the vast saltpan, trickling Tsauchab River and vast orange and red dunes part of their western Namibia adventure.
