      Sossusvlei

      Stand Among the Massive Sand Dunes

      An ancient river used to flood the area we now call Sossusvlei: "Vlei" is the Afrikaans word for an area that floods. But in modern times, flooding rarely touches Sossusvlei since it exists in one of the world's driest corners of the earth - the Namib Desert. This dramatic desert landscape boasts of some of the world’s tallest sand dunes – up to 1000 feet. Huge red dunes jut into bright blue skies for miles and miles, devoid of people and towns. It's natural. The skies at night reveal stunning stars, and the feeling of pure wilderness is all around.
