My wife and I went to Sossusvlei in November and it was by far the top thing we did in Namibia. We went early in the morning as recommended and our pictures during this time came out a lot better than than the late morning...More
We camped overnight in the park and set off whilst still dark to see this amazing site in the early sun. We were not disappointed. The colours were amazing and changed as the sun rose. Not too many people there at this time, but the...More
Although it's not the easiest place to get to, it was well worth it. Beautiful desert landscapes and dunes. Suggest you start with Deadvlei, when it's not too hot at the beginning of the day. You can park and get the shuttle but for the...More

Google Sossusvlei Dune Map and you should find a map of the dune area. Its a massive area that will take you over one hour to drive from one end to the other.

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
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. Solitaire is commerscialised and the bakery is over rated. Appele pie without cream and the rest is abolutely tasteless. Travelled in October 2017
