Why Sossusvlei?
Desert life isn’t easy, so the animals you’ll see in Sossusvlei – just a small part of the vast Namib Naukluft National Park – have adapted over centuries to the unforgiving conditions. Reptiles are prevalent, but the area is also populated with the likes of ostrich, brown and spotted hyena and porcupine.

Sossusvlei’s awe-inspiring landscapes make this a perfect place for hot air balloon rides, sandboarding and quadbiking. If you prefer to keep your feet on the ground, hiking and guided nature walks are a terrific way to take in the scenery. Sossusvlei is equally impressive at night, with ultra-dark skies that are perfect for stargazing and astrophotography whether you opt for a luxurious desert lodge or a mobile camping experience.
  • Immense, multicoloured dunescapes sculpted by everchanging winds.
  • Access to the greater Namib Naukluft National Park.
  • Abundant activities including hot air balloon rides and sandboarding.
  • Hike with a desert specialist guide to uncover unique animals and plants.
  • Fly in or out or include Sossusvlei as part of an overland safari.
