One thing you have to do before you die is visit Sossusvlei. No matter where you stop there is a photo opportunity just waiting to be found. Sand dunes, trees and animals. Deadvlei is 60 minutes by car from the entrance if you don't stop...More

A very busy place. To visit Dead Vlei, you need to be able to walk for about a kilometre in the sand.

Amazing experience!! One of the most beautiful places that I have seen. Was well worth the hike along the top of the sand dune. If you are in Namibia, take the time to go and visit. LOVED!

Definitely not to be missed on any trip to Namibia, truly mind blowing scenery. A few tips: (1) I thought staying "inside the park gates" meant you didn't have to wait for sunrise to head out, I didn't know there was also a gate inside...More

This area includes the Dead Vlei, Dune 45 and Big Daddy Dune. Once you pay your park fees you will have access to all these areas. It's a longish drive all the way through the park (takes an hour if zog stick to the speed...More

Like the whole Namibia, the beauty of this unique red desert is no exception and it definitely falls into the category of the "out of this world" places to visit. We did the 4x4 tour and it was woth every single penny.

Arrived early and transferred at the gate to the Namib Nauklutt National park into 4x4 to reach Sossusviel. The area is very busy with people walking to the top of the sand dune, this is not one of the highest but does give amazing views...More

I agree about Swakopmund. It's a must. The roads from Swakop to Sossos is at the moment very bad, but to get there, you have to travel on the dirt, so be very careful. Book ahead of time otherwise you will be in trouble... More
