Namibia is a country of contrasting landscapes from the earth’ oldest desert, predator-rich game reserves and rugged mountains to modern cities and coastal resort towns. But no trip to southern Namibia is complete without visiting the majestic red dunes of Sossusvlei.
The Namib Desert is the oldest and most arid region in the world and has been in existence for almost 80 million years. Sossusvlei, a large ephemeral pan, is surrounded by the red sand dunes that tower up to 325 meters. The best way to view the landscape is to climb up a dune. What a magical sight!
