EXPLORE Sossusvlei


Sossusvlei is located in the Namib-Naukluft Park in Namibia and is the largest conservation area in Africa and fourth largest in the world. 

Sossusvlei is renowned for the fine sand dunes that are often referred to as the highest dunes in the world – mostly due to the spectacular sight thereof, not necessarily its dimensions. Viewing the sand dunes of Sossusvlei is best closest to sunrise and sunset as the colours over the horizon and of the dunes themselves are bold and constantly changing. Any photographer would marvel in the picturesque views, attempting to capture the beauty that is Sossusvlei.
Besides the dunes, there is much more on offer to travellers visiting this destination. In particular, the Sesriem Canyon that is located in Sossusvlei and is a spectacular site in its own right. It is a natural canyon that has been carved into a local sedimentary rock, about 1km long and up to 30m deep, over the years and is situated by the Tsauchab River. The name Sesriem means “six belts” in Afrikaans, and was named so when settlers had to attach six oryx-hide belts together to retrieve water from the canyon. Many animals use the water from the canyon, and the area is rich in natural biodiversity.
Accommodation in Sossusvlei is aplenty, and there are a variety of bed and breakfasts, safari lodges and self-catering units that cater for all travellers. Sossusvlei accommodation promises a comfortable escape and safe have from the heat, including enough refreshments and delicacies that are known to Africa. Namibia holidays are some of the best ways to see the natural beauty of Africa.
