Undulating dunes, white clay pans and vast stretches of desert

A landscape of rugged mountains, vast desert, magnificent burnt orange sand dunes, river canyons and clay pans, it is perhaps surprising that Namib-Naukluft sustains any life at all – and yet hyena, gemsbok, jackal and unique plantlife all survive in this hyper-arid region. See the spectacular Dead Vlei: a forest frozen in time, and a dawn visit to the world’s highest sand dunes at Sossusvlei is a magical experience.
