Create an itinerary including Sossusvlei
Sossusvlei represents a "pan" or lake bed, dry except for an occasional flood, surrounded by towering reddish sand dunes. Nestled in the Namib desert within Namib-Naukluft National Park, the area appears as a surreal landscape, where you can climb on the dunes and take photos of the desert scenery. Take your own four-wheel drive vehicle to the pan area, or book a tour through a local operator. As you explore the area, watch for ostriches, antelopes, and small desert rodents, especially if you visit during a rare flood occurence. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Sossusvlei by using our Namib-Naukluft Park online vacation planner.

  • We visit every couple of years and the magic remains.
  • The one and only Sossusvlei!!! Although not my favorite ... as I have a preference for Dead Vlei ... this is a must visit part of the desert. If you are interested in visiting Namibia, I can assist in designing the right travel itinerary for you.
