Get to Know Sossusvlei

The dry pans known as Sossusvlei and Dead Vlei form the most iconic of Namibia’s landscapes, enclosed as they are in the world’s tallest and arguably most spectacular dunes

Sossusvlei is the main tourist focus in Namib-Naukluft, the world’s largest national park. And it is a truly breathtaking site, comprising a cluster of parched clay pans towered over by a field of curvaceous scorpion-tail dunes up to 300 metres tall. Formed over millions of years, these rippled apricot sand mountains are composed entirely of orange sand that has blown across from the Kalahari Desert and the mouth of the Orange River. Occasionally you might make out the distinctive outline of a rapier-horned gemsbok catching the breeze on the crest, one of the strategies this desert antelope uses to reduce its body temperature.

FAQs about Sossusvlei

  • June to October is the best time to visit Namibia - wildlife viewing in the dry season is the best in all national parks, especially in Etosha National Park. The newborn animals are also born in summer.
