About Sossusvlei

One of the most pristine areas on Earth, the Namib Desert is a world of vast spaces, endless horizons, dramatic landscapes and jagged mountain heights. Thee largest private nature reserve in Southern Africa, the NamibRand Nature Reserve consists of 180 000 hectares (445 000 acres) of this unspoiled desert wilderness. Part of the biggest dune field south of the Sahara, an area known as the Namib Sand Sea, the spectacular dunes at Sossusvlei, arrayed in magnificent hues of orange, buttermilk, pumpkin and sienna, tower over a vast, dry pan.
