Sossusvlei

Sossusvlei is located in the ancient Namib-Naukluft National Park. This Park includes the oldest desert in the world. One of the biggest attractions here are the massive red sand dunes, some reaching over 300 meters in height, (often referred to as Sossusvlei)! Visiting the area at sunrise or sunset ensures amazing photographic opportunities! One can't forget Dead Vlei, often more photographed than the dunes themselves. For the ultimate experience soar silently above this magnificent area in an early morning hot air balloon safari.
 
With only one lodge actually located within the Sossusvlei Park, the rest operate from private concessions adjacent to the Park. Daily excursions into the Park are a highlight from wherever you are based. Walking barefoot up these massive towering walls of sand to watch the sunrise, the silence and solitude enveloping you, is hard to beat!
