See some of the highest sand dunes in the world at Deadvlei, one of the most arid yet remarkably picturesque landscapes on the continent. As you reach the barren clay pan, notice that only a few skeletons of trees stand above the dry earth, while only a few species of plants survive off the dawn mist and extremely rare rainfalls. During your visit, wear a hat or sunscreen and always carry extra water.

Amazing views. Worth a visit. Go early because it gets very hot. A 10min walk from the nearest parking. A 4x4 is needed to reach this parking area. If you don't have one or don't want to try driving on some short sections of loose sand, this is an earlier parking area to hire a 4x4 with driver.
It’s interesting that the clay ground looks milky smooth from above. Beautiful beautiful !
