Totally beyond WOW. We loved every second of our visit here. The changes in colour with the sun, the peace, the night sky- all totally memorable. Has to be seen to be believed. Will be back

This is a must on any visitor to Namibia's tour. 800 year old trees which were starved of water when the sands shifted and cut the river off. Magical place for any photographer

Part of the Namib desert is, of course, a UNESCO world heritage site so as an endorsement, that's right up there. But we didn't visit the UNESCO site. We went elsewhere in the desert ... to the Moon Landscape out from Swakopmund, an hours drive...More

Be sure to get to the park as soon as it opens. The temperature climbs quickly, and by 11 am it is quite hot in the dead vlei. Walking in the fine, loose sand is quite taxing unless you are fairly fit. Doing it while...More

Just amazing scenery; stark, sandy but beautiful. I loved the way the sand dunes changed colour between the early morning and later in the day.

What an incredible place! These dunes are the world's highest and are stable. See them at sunrise or sunset - you won't believe the colors of the sand.

This site at Sossusvlei is 150 km from the ocean but this salt and clay pan was a major highlight of our trip to Namibia. Arrive before sunrise and enjoy the dead marsh and dunes. A flight over the area puts it all in perspective.

We hiked for a few hours and now, weeks later, I am still finding Namibian sand in my shoes. It is a very special experience to witness this pristine nature. Our guide was very knowledgeable and explained the climatic and geographic phenomena that cause this...More

It's amazing to see the Namib Desert and to see that a number of species also lives there, especially the Oryx and a number of birds. It's also amazing how it changes its form and color during the morning, noon and dawn. Be sure to...More
