Sossusvlei, located in the red dunes of the Namib Desert, is formed where the natural course of the transient Tsauchab River is blocked by a mass of sand. This mass of sand stretches for 400kms South of Walvis Bay, sandwiched between the cold Benguela current of the west coast and the escarpment that runs parallel more than 100km inland. 

The lunar-like pans are known as some of the tallest and reddest in the world and present one of the most spectacular images of Namibia. Despite lack of vegetation and low rainfall the desert is bursting with life with a surprisingly diverse array of insects, reptiles and rodents.  

Sunset and sunrise are spectacular and it is well worth exploring the area at this time of day to experience the fantastic colours and light which floods the desert landscape.
