The dunes at Sossusvlei are simply spectacular. For the dramatic photos have to head out early or late when the sun is at a low angle. Climbing them is very fun. Earlier is better as the winds might pick up later in the day making...More

A truly fascinating place with the most photogenic views you will ever see. Drive yourself to the first car park and the take the shuttle bus. The sand is very deep and unless you are very experienced do not try it yourself. many get stuck....More

There is a need to walk through hot sand to get there but the view of an area of dead lake/forest is well worth the effort (best wear covered shoes).

It was very hot, bring water with you, amazing scenery. It's like being in another world. Definitely walk up the dunes and out to deadvlei.

The drive in was amazing, a convoy of trucks all heading into the dunes by moonlight - a bit Mad Max. When we got to the 2 wheel drive car park everyone charged off towards Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei, but we almost got stuck in...More

What's there to say? This place is amazing. We went on one of the most awful days you could imagine. The wind was howling, the sand was drifting. Cars were getting stuck as they tried to drive up towards Deadvlei. Our guide got stuck briefly....More

The Sossusflei and Deadflei areas are regions of great natural beauty and every bend in the road brings a new photo op. Dune 7 (name comes from being 7Kms from entrance to National Park) is where every enthusiastic climber heads. It looks deceptively doable but...More

Stunning piece of world heritage although somewhat crowded. Get in as early as you can to enjoy the effects of sunrise on the massive dunes. For a quieter experience head to the vlei away from the popular route up Big Daddy. There are few other...More

Probably the most iconic landscape in Namibia, which means that everyone who visits seems to come here, usually as first stop out of Windhoek. Now it’s a long drive from either Windhoek or Swakopmund, but not quite as bad as many people seem to suggest....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
