Sossusvlei in Namibia is a clay pan surrounded by some of the highest sand dunes in the world. Sossusvlei`s rich ochre sea of rippling sand dunes is one of the most wondrous sights in the world.

The feminine curves rise tantalisingly to 305 metres (1,000 feet). The colours change throughout the day from burnt orange through red to deepest mauve. Here you can observe the flora and fauna that inhabits this region and climb to the top of one of the many dunes which affords the energetic traveller an unforgettable experience of endless vistas across a sea of apricot-coloured sand and explore the impressive sandstone gorges of the Sesriem Canyon, with its rock pools fed by the Tsauchab, the same river that feeds Sossusvlei during the rainy season.

Touring excursions with expert guides can be easily arranged to allow you to experience this fascinating region and its wildlife both safely and to the full.
