The signature orange dunes framed in bright blue sky, white floor of extinct river and charcoal black remains of erect trees make this place a paradise for photographers

Following the asphalt road, you will end at a parking space where you can take the tractor shuttle to the Deadvlei, since the road is well ploughed through by the many 4WD that made it and got stuck.

It was amazing to see the dunes! In my opinion the best and only time you can hike „Big Daddy“ is right before sunrise. We arrived at 10 o‘clock and it was already so hot, there was no chance to make it only half-way. You...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
