Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei’s apricot dunes, the largest in the world, are one of the main highlights of any trip through the Namib Dessert. Some of the dunes in Sossusvlei are a towering 300m, and while reaching the top can be draining, it is worth it for the views. The nearby Naukluft Mountains form a stark contrast to Sossusvlei, with flowing waterfalls and streams, and fig and olive trees.

Namibia self-drive holiday

A superb, exciting and absolutely enjoyable trip! ...Every day brought a new adventure.
